Kim Kardashian Tells Fans 'You're Stressing Me The F*** Out' Over Swatches.

Kim Kardashian's wildly successful KKW Beauty line is bracing for the release of a new product: Powder Contour & Highlight Kits dropping August 22. Ahead of next week's launch, the 36-year-old beauty mogul told fans in a series of Snapchats that they're "stressing me the f-k out" in response to criticism of her makeup swatches.

"Okay guys, I get it. I didn't know how to f-ing swatch powders before at the beginning," Kardashian said. "I'm learning, but you're stressing me the f-k out."

She added, "At least the product - at least we can back it up. Just wait until you get it. You'll be pleasantly surprised. I'm not worried."

The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star shared the Snaps while preparing for a shoot with Mario Dedivanovic, her close friend and KKW collaborator. The beauty maven posted the Snaps in response to critics who pointed out that Kardashian had poorly swatched her Powder Contour & Highlight Kits in previous videos.

Ahead of the launch of her Powder Contour & Highlight Kits, Kardashian came under fire Tuesday for defending past racist comments made by beauty blogger Jeffree Star, with whom Kardashian has worked in the past. Star (https://twitter.com/JeffreeStar/status/897160880336519170) wrote on Twitter that Kardashian's swatches for the new product looked like "chalk." Kardashian on Monday came to his defense in a series of Snapchats.

"Guys, I see that my fans are totally hating on someone like Jeffree Star for being, you know honest about my struggle swatches," she said. "But because of his remarks I'm learning from the best, like from Mario, how to swatch properly."

Fans were quick to point to Star's past racist commentary while also noting that both Kardashian's children and husband are African American.

"Kim K., like so many other white women who have black children/spouses, has the luxury of overlooking racism when it's convenient for her," (https://twitter.com/tchristine__/status/897453382251761664) wrote one Twitter user.

Another user (https://twitter.com/amandaofdorne/status/897455556297981952) tweeted , "Can someone tell Kim K that having a black husband and biracial kids doesn't make her the authority on what black people should forgive."

(https://twitter.com/balleralert/status/897497148685639680/video/1) Kardashian apologized Tuesday for telling fans to look beyond Star's racist commentary.

"I really wanted to apologize to you guys and my fans for defending a situation that I didn't know enough about," she said. "I just feel a bit naive and I do really want to apologize for me feeling like I had the right say 'get over it' in a situation that involves racism. I don't really feel like I have the right to speak on that. I really, really, really am sorry."
