We’re going to talk about 13 of the best KKW Beauty products to get from Ulta so you’ll be ready to put your wallet where your mouth is.
In this article:
Kim Kardashian West (KKW) has been the reigning queen of contour and smokey eyes thanks, in no small part, to her long-time makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. After almost a decade of rocking the look, KKW took a page out of her sister, Kylie’s book and started KKW Beauty.
While Kylie’s brand, Kylie Jenner Cosmetics, started with lip kits to recreate the pouty-lipped look, Kim’s brand started with contour kits to recreate the snatched cheekbone look.
Kim Kardashian West wanted her brand to make applying makeup easier. The KKW Beauty products are supposed to be accessible to the everyday makeup wearer that might not have a ton of time to commit to doing their makeup, but still has the desire to look glam.
KKW accomplished this by taking a buildable approach to her products. By using less pigment, she hoped to give customers a better chance of getting their makeup the way they want it without spending all of their time blending like you would with a product that has more pigment.
The Ulta launch is such a big deal, too, because she wants Kim Kardashian makeup to be more accessible. Previously only available on the KKW Beauty website, all of KKW’s products will be available in store for those who want to swatch and make sure they choose the right shades.

Now that we know a little more about the brand, let’s get into the products!
