In case you haven’t noticed, KKW Beauty is taking over the whole beauty game. Every product they release has hype-baes and beauty junkies from all over the world running to their computers to buy them. And who can blame them–the product line is curated by none other than Kim Kardashian-West, so it must be amazing, right?
The latest KKW Beauty release is the KKW X ARGENIS Crème Color Stick line, created with the winner of Lifetime’s Glam Masters, Argenis Pinal. The 5-shade eyeshadow stick line is packed with stunning pigments that glide onto your lids like butter. Whether you want to sculpt, line, or blend, this eyeshadow stick is perfect for tying together stunning results.
KKW X ARGENIS Crème Color Sticks ($18 for one stick, $80 for the set)
If you want a stunning day glow or you’re trying to serve some looks on a big night out, these creme sticks will definitely do justice. Although it’s technically shadow, we can totally see ourselves rockin’ these glimmering shades on our lips, or even dabbing some on as a highlighter.
While these shades are nothing short of poppin’, there’s one thing that makes us want to back away: the price. There’s a good reason why this is one of the very few items on the KKW Beauty roster that hasn’t sold out. We believe it’s because no one wants to pay $18 for one small eyeshadow stick. And $80 for a set? Forget it.
Why would we pay that much for eyeshadow when we can get cheaper products at our local drugstores? People, never underestimate good ol’ drugstore beauty products. Most of the time they work just as well as the big name brands. Luckily for you, we found some of the most amazing dupes to the latest KKW Beauty launch so you can keep your makeup on fleek without draining your bank account. Don’t go broke in the name of beauty, check out some of our amazing drugstore beauty finds instead!
