Body makeup is the new trend now. From body shimmers to body contouring, every celebrity is coming out with body makeup. Rihanna with the Fenty body lavas, Chrissy Teigen with her Becca collabs and now Kim Kardashian with her body shimmer and body foundation. Kim received mixed reactions to her announcement. Of course, being a Kardashian, they can hardly receive all positive feedbacks. Also, if you’re curious to try body makeup without breaking the bank, we’ve included an easy DIY below!
On June 14, Kim Kardashian teased a range of body makeup for her brand KKW. Her latest launch includes loose body shimmer, skin perfecting body shimmer, skin perfecting body foundation and a body brush. Kim Kardashian posted a video of her wearing her body makeup on her leg, showing it covers up her psoriasis, as an introduction to her new product. She later added a video of her covering her the back of her grandmother's palm. The foundation covered her grandmother’s veiny arm very well and some people were quite impressed with the product.

Let’s talk about the transfer. I’ve been using body makeup for over a decade & in my experience you either get coverage that doesn’t transfer but it’s super dry and looks fake or it’s the opposite and really moisturizing but completely transfers. My new body makeup is in between. pic.twitter.com/3Da9Bw1MQJ

However, people were quick to call Kim out for unrealistic body image she sets for young girls. They compared her to Rihanna who chose to launch something to make skin glow, not hide imperfections. While the body foundation looks very promising, some people are having issues with Kim launching body foundation. Looks like Kylie’s skincare line failure is affecting sister, Kimberly.
People criticising KKW body foundation:
Yep women- you now have to cover you’re entire body with “concealer” before being seen by the outside world. What a con.

Kim you don’t need this, do a photoshoot with your ”imperfections” be proud of your flaws and show them instead of cover them.

Body make up? I prefer my skin to breath. Every inch of you is covered in some product you're selling.

Other celebrities didn't get hate for their body makeup collections so why Kim? Body makeup isn't something revolutionary by Kim K, it has been around for a long, long time. Maybe don't the product if you don't support it. She's catering it to people who would like to hide minor insecurities here and there.
