Kim had previously revealed that she was going to be dropping her first beauty collection in June of 2017, she posted the above image on Instagram for her KKW Beauty Creme Contour and Highlight Kit, which will be available on June 21.

Everyone saying that @KimKardashian is doing blackface in her latest picture for her contour kit is dumb. She looks tan…. NOT BLACK!
