If you haven’t realized by now, this is clearly a Kardashian world, and we’re just living in it. Kim Kardashian launched her official website Monday, complete with style inspo, beauty tips and faves, and a behind the scenes look at what it’s really like to live the life of Kimye’s better half.
Obviously I spent my morning gawking over the site's section dedicated to baby North’s style (because why wouldn’t you want your daughter/niece/sister to dress like Hollywood’s most fashionable toddler?), but was eventually distracted by the top notch beauty tutorials courtesy of the contour queen herself and, of course, her infamous glam squad featuring Mario Dedivanovic.
Earlier this year, Kardashian gave
Into The Gloss a thorough breakdown of her intensive beauty routine, and all the financial nightmares of what it costs to get the Kim K beauty treatment came true. Getting down to the nitty-gritty, Cosmopolitan confirmed that between application tools and beauty products alone, Kardashian’s beauty routine totals about $1,600. Ouch.
Personally, hardly interested in the upkeep this woman’s face demands, but who doesn’t want to steal some of Kardashian's beauty secrets? Luckily for us, her new website provides fans with budget-friendly recommended products so that we can get Kim Kardashian glam on a dime.
The good news? You're getting Kardashian-approved cosmetics that will make all the Kardashian beauty goals achievable. The bad news? There's a fee.
Everyone tells you that beauty is pain, but they somehow conveniently leave out its going rate. For VIP membership and access to these HD video tutorials and product insiders, you'll pay $2.99/month. Ideal? No. Worth it? Definitely.
For a limited time, you can try a seven-day membership trial via kimkardashianwest.com, but for those of you thinking it may not be worth your while, I've got the inside scoop on the essentials.
