Original story (8/15/17 at 12:06 p.m. ET):
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was forced to defend herself on social media after she showed off her new contour kits on Snapchat.
Fans, including beauty blogger Jeffree Star, criticized the way the 36-year-old swatched her power makeup on her arm.
“Umm… Kim what is going on with those new swatches?? Looks like chalk,” the makeup mogul wrote on Twitter.
“I’m never a fan of finger swatches so I’ll have to try the @kkwbeauty on my face for a final verdict but… doesn’t look great so far.”

Needless to say, the flack was not well received by Kimmy.
“I want you guys to see this pimple here,” she said in a Snapchat video following her makeup post.
“You’re stressing me the f—k out.”
She continued, “OK guys, I get it, I didn’t know how to f—king swatch powders before at the beginning — I’m learning.”
However, despite being put on blast by Jeffree, the mother of two let her fans know she’s using his critiques to improve.
“I see that my fans are totally hating on someone like Jeffree Star for being honest about my struggle swatches,” Kimmy said, also noting Jeffree had made some racist remarks in the past, for which he apologized for.
“But because of his remarks I’m learning. I get that it’s a serious deal if you say like racial things but I do believe in people changing and people that apologize, I will give them the benefit of the doubt,” she said.
“I know better than anyone that I hate when people bring up my past or mistakes that I’ve made in the past so like, let him live.”
She continued, “I welcome honest comments about my products and because of it, I’m swatching better now.”
Needless to say, Jeffree was thankful Kanye West’s wife took the criticism well.
“The fact that someone like @KimKardashian can understand and take real feedback is what a REAL boss bitch does. Love you.”
