Society Continues To Crumble As Kim Kardashian’s Makeup Line Makes $14M In One Day

I’m not a fan of the Kardashian clan. I think they’re valueless, materialistic, no talent scourges on society who set a horrible example for younger generations. But even I can respect their global hustle and savvy business moves. With Kim dropping a new makeup line, KKW Beauty, I can add one more item to my grow list of reasons to hate yet envy them.

The first in a long line of makeup sets were released today and it was an IMMEDIATE success. The first product sold out in 12 minutes after it hit the Internet. 12 minutes.

OMG Medium has sold out! I can't believe it! In just a few minutes!

A few hours later, all of the products had been snatched up. All told, E News is reporting the product drop drew in around $14 million. In one day. Actually, in less than three hours. The most successful three-hour stretch of my life was when I crushed the first three episodes of Stranger Things in one sitting last summer. (It was glorious).

Kim may have as much talent as a ball of cotton, but momager Kris Jenner sure knows how to brand the absolute f— out of her. Gotta tip my cap to them for leveraging their fame into a multifaceted and rage-inspiringly lucrative empire.

Kim is estimated to be worth upwards of $100 million, meaning they’re obviously doing A LOT right. It also means I can talk as much s— as I want about how they accumulated this wealth and their actual value to society, but I’ll never in a million years equal their accomplishments.

Life is unfair. I need a hug.
