When I first saw the images of Kim Kardashian’s upcoming collaboration, I legitimately thought I was seeing double. It was after my eye caught the smize and the signature vitiligo, did I realise, “Oh sh*t, it’s Winnie Harlow!” Even then, my dumb ass exhausted brain thought that maybe Harlow was simply a face for the campaign. Boy, was I wrong.
We’re past mid-2019, and of all the alliances we’ve seen come and go at this point, this one stands out for me. Maybe because I’d never imagined that a brand like KKW Beauty would invite top tier model Winnie Harlow to create a line with. Campaign face? Sure. But curating an entire beauty line? Kim Kardashian West has left me flabbergasted again! (In a good way, that’s for sure!)
KKW x WINNIE
I love Winnie Harlow. To be so accepting and proud of one’s self is something I am yet to achieve. And then we see Harlow, who does the whole self-love with so much fierceness and confidence, it can leave one to tears.
The KKW x Winnie collection features a 12-pan shadow palette, a highlighter duo and lip glosses. And they’re all packaged in a GORGEOUS bronze gold theme. The artwork on the cartons, however, is something out of a fashion magazine.
Speaking on the alliance, Misz West states that she has a ton of respect and admiration for Harlow. (same boat, Madam K) Furthermore, she also says that Winnie is “the definition of true beauty.”
KKW x WINNIE EYE SHADOW PALETTE
The matte shadows provide a creamy powdery finish in an array of warm tones including a mid tone brown, walnut brown, and rich burgundy. The butter smooth metallic shadows can be used wet or dry and with brushes or fingers to create an effortlessly saturated, silky look.

Two shimmer highlight shades for brightening and adding glow to wherever you feel like. Use them alone or alternately, together for a spell binding glow.

KKW x WINNIE GLOSSES
The high shine gloss can be worn alone or with your favourite lipstick or lip liner. The gloss gently glides over lips for smooth and ultra glossy finish.
