And that's only from the first five minutes of sales...
In five minutes, you can boil an egg, make a cup of tea, or check Facebook (again). But if you’re Kim Kardashian, you can make a cool £11 million in that time. Sorry, WHAT?
According to industry sources, Kim K is expected to make millions in minutes when her make up line launches on Wednesday.
The predictions are based partly on the ma-huu-ssive success of her and sister Kylie Jenner’s lipstick collab. The duo sold 300,000 of their £35 lip kits and made £10 million in the first five minutes of sales.
W-O-W. That’s A LOT of money.
Does this mean the end of future KimXKylie collabs? Kim’s not ruled it out, but she did say she’s learnt a lot from working with her youngest sis: “We have a good model, and even from our lip kit, we have a really good general idea of what our customer is going to be like,’ she said.
“We are definitely prepared for the demand.…I know they [Seed Beauty] do make a mass volume. It’s not like we’re making a small quantity and it’s selling out.”
And it’s not just beauty products Kim K’s kashing in on. As well as clothes, perfumes, 420-themed ashtrays, pool floats and religious candles, you can also buy a Kimmy K fidget spinner. Is there nothing this woman doesn’t think of?!
The reality star revealed her newest drop of themed KIMOJI paraphernalia this week (the theme is ‘Daddy’… jury’s still out on whether that’s in a sexual way, or just in a regular #dad way), and among the strange items (including photo keychain and socks) is a gold… Daddy-themed… dollar sign-shaped… fidget spinner.
The ‘Engraved Daddy Fidget Spinner’ is priced at a reasonable $25 and is bound to up your street cred by at least four points.
