Yesterday on Instagram stories, Kim Kardashian posted a pic of her makeup drawer with the caption: “When did I become this person ?!?”
Maybe she was referring to the messiness of the drawer or the fact that she has a ton of brushes, lip glosses, and palettes (anyone surprised? Didn’t think so), but this snippet is seriously everything. Because now we get to know what she actually uses on a regular basis.
That’s why we enlisted the help of New York City makeup artist Sharon Gjieli to pick out exactly what’s in here, why, and how you can buy it. One thing Gjieli notices is how it shows off Kim K’s style: “She has a mix of both luxury and affordable products. Her selection is varied and diversified with many different brands,” says Gjieli. And yeah, it’s a bit crowded in there for good reason. “The trend probably runs out before her product does,” she adds.

Naturally, lots of the products pictured came from her own brand, KKW Beauty, and her sister’s brand, Kylie Cosmetics. However, some eagle-eyed fans also spotted something potentially brand new from her own makeup line lurking in the star’s drawer—launching speculations of a new launch from KKW Beauty on the horizon.
While we don’t know what is in store from Kim’s makeup line, here are five products in her makeup drawer that really stood out to Gjieli:
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
“This is great for girls who have those dark circles under their eyes that no eye cream will help,” says Gjieli. The creamy formula is blendable and covers up everything like a pro. Though we don’t know exactly what shade this is, Gjieli says that Custard, which has yellow undertones for light to medium complexions, is one of the most popular.
Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer
“Considering she has several different types of concealers, it’s obvious she’s mixing and matching for the best coverage,” says Gjieli. The easy-to-blend concealer from Tarte hides flaws expertly, boosts brightness, and helps contour your features.

See that red sponge? It’s hard to say what brand it is exactly, but it’s some form of beauty blender. “When you’re wearing layers and layers of concealer, you really need to blend the heck out of it,” says Gjieli. This is a must-have because you can use them damp or dry to give your face a flawless finish.

Benefit Cosmetics Hula Bronzer
Hiding up top in the drawer, “this has been a staple product for two decades. You can’t wear it and look bad in it,” says Gjielii. She uses it on clients of all skin tones because it gives them a beautiful radiance. Buy it in bronze or light bronze for a flattering glow best suited for your skin tone. (We also love this creamy blush from the Women’s Health Boutique to get a natural-looking glow.)

Sisley Double Tenseur
This gel primer helps lift and firm skin with oat seed extract to wake up your complexion. Use it as a base to improve the wearability of your foundation, or apply it over makeup to touch up. If you’re looking for a subtle boost to skin, you can also wear this alone.
