Kim K Just Launched Body Makeup, But This Stuff Isn’t New

I’m not ashamed to say I’m a fan of the Kardashian-Jenner’s. I pay $6.99 a month for a streaming service just so I can watch KUWTK every Monday, and I’m a lot more personally invested in Khloe’s relationship dramas than I should be.

So, when it comes to dupes of Kylie Cosmetics or KKW Beauty, I’m your girl. Firstly, kudos to Kim for all the publicity around her body makeup recently, but in all honesty, she’s a bit late to the party. Body makeup ain’t a new concept, so I’ve put together a list of body makeup options to save you the $15 shipping and USD conversion rate.

Who Is Body Makeup For?

Body makeup has been around for quite a while – it’s commonly used by makeup artists on celebrity clients for red carpet appearances, as well as in photo shoots to give the skin an airbrushed finish. In Kim’s case, she uses body makeup to disguise her psoriasis.

But what about us regular people? Well, I use body makeup not only to enhance my fake tan and make my skin look smooth and radiant, but it also hides my mottled legs in winter, instantly fixes patchy tan, and can cover scars, veins, bruises, uneven skin tone and other imperfections.

Body makeup is definitely not an everyday product, but for special occasions, I cannot go past lathering this stuff all over myself (unless I’m wearing all white, then I avoid it). It really does make your skin look completely flawless.

The Dupes:

Considering the KKW Beauty body makeup retails for around $65 AUD, plus $15 shipping, Vita Liberata winds up being cheaper anyway for those of us in Australia (also, who doesn’t want a Tim Tam with their order?)

Vita Liberata Body Blur

Described as a filter in a tube, this is the original body makeup that’s still used by celebrity makeup artist all over the world.

– It instantly perfects the appearance of skin & easily washes off

– Contains light-reflecting particles combined with coverage

– Acts like a pair of sheer stockings to blur & minimise skin imperfections

– It also locks in moisture & is made with natural and organic ingredients

★★★★★ One step close to being a VS Angel – J

“So apparently this is what they use on the catwalk, which is what made me try it, and oh my goodness it’s AMAZING. I love that I can wash it off because I cant be bothered with maintaining a fake tan that lasts a week. What a perfect glow this gives. Not too shimmery, not an awful colour, no horrible smell. The consistency is nice also, it’s not too runny, it just blends in so easily.”
