Kim Kardashian Explains How Her Makeup Line Will Be Different From Kylie's

In other words, no, Kim isn't trying to copy Kylie's thing.

When Kim Kardashian announced her new beauty line last week, it didn't take long for fans to accuse Kim of trying to come for little sister Kylie Jenner's crown. After all, Kylie's makeup empire is kind of her whole thing, right?

Cosmopolitan reports that during a new interview with Women's Wear Daily, Kim clarified that she's not trying to step on her sister's toes at all. What KKW Beauty will focus on is totally different from what Kylie Cosmetics offers, she explained.

"A lot of my stuff is going to be for skin," Kim said. "[I'm] trying to mirror skin care with makeup. It's going to be a different vibe; it's not going to be a full color cosmetics [range] with shadows and all of that to start. I will probably do some kits here and there of specific [makeup] looks I've done and keep it within the looks."

"I am older than Kylie. We definitely have a different audience," she continued. "We do have a lot of similar things — but we aren't doing the same products, so we won't run into that overlap. We're really cautious of that. We work together to make sure that we don't overlap like that."

"Ultimately, I think once it launches and people see we are a really different brand, it will be able to coexist, but be so separate," she finished.

Hear that? Simmer down, folks. There isn't a makeup war brewing between Kylie and Kim. Kylie is known for her lip kits, and it looks like Kim's brand will indeed be focusing on skin and face products, like contouring kits. Take a look at a recent sneak peek she posted yesterday below.
