Not all of Kim’s fans supported the launch as some called the product prices “crazy.”

Editors took to the platform to voice their honest opinions on the 41-year-old beauty mogul’s new business venture.

“It will definitely be his biggest business failure ever,” one person sternly predicted.

Others in the thread agreed, as another wrote: ‘But I’m sure their sales will drop exponentially after a while like a lot of celebrity business ventures do.’

Several others had a similar reaction to the high-priced items.

“These prices are crazy…$95 for a night oil! Also, what’s the difference between oil drops and night oil?” one pointed out.

“Kim is so out of touch with reality,” added a second.

Fans voiced the same gripes about Hulu’s personality nine-step skincare routine.

Following the announcement, an interview with The New York Times took a closer look at the philosophy behind the long routine and product pricing.

Kim – whose sister Kylie Jenner, 24, found success with her skincare line, Kylie Skin – called her new range “prestige”.

The nine items, including a cleanser, toner and exfoliator, totaled $630.

Some of the specialty products, including a hyaluronic acid serum and a nighttime oil, cost $90 and $95 respectively.

‘OUT OF REACH’

Fans were unimpressed and took issue with the high price tag.

On Twitter, one wrote: “$630? It’s better to be oversized. Who the hell could afford it?”

Another added: “You can buy all of this for less than $100 with other brands. None of this is special.”

A user on Reddit added, “So incredibly unlikable, it makes her.”

Another described the famous family as “really entering their disconnected era…”

Despite the backlash, billionaire Kim argues the high prices are a “necessity” to get ingredients in the products she “wouldn’t really miss”.

During the interview, she added, “The products I used that were comparable were way more expensive, not comparing anything.

“I tried to get quality at the best possible price, especially the vitamin C serum.”

The mum-of-four also backed the lengthy nine-step routine, insisting all the products were “necessary”.

BEAUTY STRUGGLES

In January, The Sun exclusively broke news of Kim’s new line of skins, along with the name of the company.

But securing the new venture wasn’t the easiest process, as the TV star was forced into a war with a business owner over using the word ‘SKKN’.

Sources told The Sun last year that the California native wanted to rename her previous beauty line since KKW stood for her married name, “Kim Kardashian West,” which she has since filed to change following her status as a single.

The Sun has obtained documents that show the SKIMS founder filed a trademark to acquire the SKKN name that will cover “retail store services offering skin, cosmetics, hair, nails and beauty products, tools and accessories, perfumes, perfumes, candles, vitamins and supplements”. as well as many other departments, including furnishings.

However, the E! alum was met with a legal pushback from Cydnie Lunsford, the owner of SKKN+a black-owned spa and beauty center in New York City.

According to legal documents obtained by The Sun, SKKN+ has used the small business moniker since “at least 2018,” years before Kim asked to use the same name for his business.

But clearly that hasn’t stopped the model, who has now moved on with her new skincare line.
