Years before Kim Kardashian West launched her wildly successful KKW Beauty products, she was getting baked, contoured, and highlighted at the hands of Mario Dedivanovic. The makeup artist, known as @MakeupByMario on Instagram, has been by Kardashian West's side for a decade, helping shape her into the beauty icon and modern contour expert we know today.
So it only makes sense that the latest KKW Beauty drop would be a collaboration between the two, launching on April 5th on their 10-year work-anniversary. The two have been teasing the #KKWxMario collection since last year, but we just got a first look at what the products look like.
The major news from the collection is an eyeshadow palette with ten pans of bold colors like cobalt, maroon, shimmery eggplant. This marks the first time KKW Beauty will debut a cosmetic product in a shade other than nude. Kardashian West previously told BAZAAR.com that bright color was more her half-sister Kylie Jenner's thing with Kylie Cosmetics. "I am focusing on skin. Not that I won't have eyeshadows in a kit, but I am not focusing on color cosmetics," she exclusively told BAZAAR.com back in June 2017. "My line will really differ from Kylie's and it is a whole separate thing."
The video that both Dedivanovic and Kardashian West posted on Instagram also teased a nude lipstick in a bullet (also a first for KKW Beauty) and two lip glosses. The #KKWxMario collection was inspired by the looks the two have created together over the years, so it's safe to assume a slew of video tutorials will be coming our way.
We'll update this post when more information about the products and prices are released.
