Jameela Jamil has described Kim Kardashian’s new body make-up collection as “a time-consuming hassle”.
Earlier in June, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star announced she was expanding her KKW Beauty range with a body make-up line, with products including the Skin Perfecting Body Make Up Foundation, Skin Perfecting Body Shimmer, and Loose Shimmer Powder for Face & Body.
To celebrate the release of the collection, Kim shared a close-up video of a model applying the make-up all over her body with a brush, and The Good Place actress retweeted the clip and made it clear she wasn’t a fan of the product, branding it “a time-consuming, expensive hassle”.
“Hard pass. God damn the work to take it all off before bed, so it doesn’t destroy your sheets… I’d rather just make peace with my million stretch marks and eczema,” she tweeted on Monday. “Taking off my mascara is enough of a pain in the a**e. Save money and time and give yourself a damn break.”
Jameela was then challenged by journalist Rebecca Reid, who asked why mascara and facial foundation were fine but body make-up was bad, and the 33-year-old replied, “Personally I rarely use foundation for this reason, it gives me a rash, clogs my pores and is a pain to take off. I can’t imagine what it would take to cover my whole body. Very tedious and costly.”
She also reasoned that mascara was cheaper, easier to apply and remove and wouldn’t stain clothes or bed sheets, and concluded, “I said I was personally passing on the product and expressed my entirely valid and appropriate concern for the amount of money and time and extra pore clogging this will cost women.”
The British actress later explained to her followers her legs are covered in “huge patches” of pigmentation loss due to severe eczema, as well as stretch marks and scars, and added, “I *refuse* to have these normal human marks weaponised against me.”
Kim has not responded to the remarks.
