Kim Kardashian is saying goodbye to KKW Beauty and hello to a new and better brand.

Kim took to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday to announce that she’ll be temporarily shutting down the website, before relaunching it “under a completely new brand with new formulas.”

“To our loyal customers, [i]t all started with a contour kit and expanded to eyes, lips, body, and many incredible collections over the past four years,” the statement began.

“On August 1st at midnight we will be shutting down the KKWBeauty.com site so that we can come back to you under a completely new brand with new formulas that are more modern, innovative, and packaged in an elevated and sustainable new look,” Kim continued.

The 40-year-old beauty and fashion mogul also teased a new “shopping experience,” which will allow customers to purchase all of her beauty and cosmetic products in one place.

“I’m excited to continue to develop and expand my product range and for you to finally be able to experience it the way that I have always envisioned,” Kim added.  “In addition, my team is hard at work to improve the customer shopping experience where you will be able to purchase my beauty and cosmetic offerings in all categories from one single website.”

Kim launched her KKW Beauty line in 2017.  She sold 20 percent of the company to Coty in 2019 for $200 million, although the deal wasn’t finalized until this past January.
