Kim Kardashian hit back at people accusing her of shading a beauty blogger who criticized her contour kits

Kim and Jackie Aina

The INSIDER Summary:

  • Kim Kardashian’s new contour sticks have been criticized for being too small and even breaking.
  • Beauty vlogger Jackie Aina shared a somewhat critical review of the sticks on YouTube. 
  • Instagram users noticed Aina was the only blogger that Kardashian didn’t tag in a series of photos that she took at a pre-launch party for KKW Beauty.
  • Kardashian explained on Twitter that she didn’t “intentionally not tag” Aina in the photo, but rather wasn’t able to. She claims she was unable to fix the mistake later.

Kim Kardashian’s beauty line KKW Beauty launched just a week ago, but the reality star’s contour kits have already got a bad reputation.

First, Kardashian faced backlash for a photo promoting the KKW Beauty contour kits after accusations of blackface. Beauty blogger Jeffree Star then showed how small the contour sticks really are. And now YouTube vloggers are finding that the sticks are breaking on them altogether.

One of them, Jackie Aina, was invited to Kim Kardashian’s home for a pre-launch party — but commenters noticed that Aina was the only person Kardashian didn’t tag in an Instagram photo that shows her posing with bloggers (click right to see the untagged photo).

Thank you to everyone who came out to my @kkwbeauty launch event! Loved seeing my OG’s & meeting so many new people!

Some Instagram users assumed that Aina wasn’t tagged because she gave a somewhat critical review of the contour sticks on YouTube.

In her review, Aina pointed out that the product broke when she used it and that was she “confused” by the colors on the Deep Dark contour stick, which she said looked almost the same. 

People left comments on Kardashian’s Instagram demanding that she tag the beauty blogger.

“Honestly, I would’ve been pressed that Kim posted me lmao, but still #TagJackie,” one wrote.

“Love the way you un tagged @jackieaina because she did an honest review on ur overpriced makeup,” another comment reads.

Kardashian responded to her followers’ concerns with a series of tweets, after seeing a story about it online. Refinery29 reported on the controversy, and updated its story with the reality star’s response.

She claimed that she didn’t intentionally not tag Aina.

She blamed it on a technical difficulty.

At least she claims she tried to tag her again later.

It genuinely seems she didn’t mean any harm, and she seems to respect Aina’s opinion.

Though we’re not sure how much she really values the negative feedback, Kardashian kept it professional.

She even flagged the issue with Instagram. Given her elite celebrity status, Kim might just be able to make the app change its ways.
