    Kim K Shut Down Claims She Left A Beauty Vlogger Untagged On Instagram Because Of A Bad Review

    People suggested Kim deliberately failed to tag beauty vlogger Jackie Aina in a selfie on Instagram after she criticised the contour product Kim launched last week. But she says there was a simple explanation.

    Last week Kim Kardashian West launched the first product in her beauty line – a cream contour and highlighter set, obvs.

    Kim invited a bunch of beauty bloggers and vloggers to the launch of her line, which was held at her home.

    And after the launch, she shared a whole host of albums on Instagram showing the selfies she took with the bloggers.

    One of these guests was YouTuber Jackie Aina. After the launch, she posted her review of the product.

    Much of what Jackie said was positive – she liked the fact that Kim had catered for all skin tones, adored the highlighter, and called Kim a "revolutionary" in makeup application – but she had a few criticisms too.

    Jackie didn't like the double-ended sponge and brush that came with the contour, said the price point was too high, and also said that contouring is "outdated" in the beauty community, questioning why Kim hadn't launched this product "five years ago."

    And there was one major difference between the selfie Kim took with Jackie, and those taken with the rest of the vloggers. Because while Kim tagged each of the others...

    She did not tag Jackie.

    And it didn't take long for people to lay into Kim, suggesting that she deliberately didn't tag Jackie because of her review.

    @KimKardashian is complete trash for not tagging @jackieaina, purposefully. I've completely lost respect for her and her brand (@kkwbeauty).

    It doesn't surprise me that Kim Kardashian untagged Jackie Aina from her Instagram post bc Jackie gave her makeup product an honest review.

    Kim Kardashian being petty and not tagging Jackie Aina just because she gave an honest review on her new make-up is typical of Kim K

    Kim Kardashian literally untagged Jackie Aina from her instagram post because she gave an honest review of KKW Beauty 😂😂

    Then the story blew up.

    Well, Kim has now responded, shutting down suggestions that her failure to tag Jackie was deliberate.

    I just saw a story saying I intentionally didn’t tag @jackieaina in a pic I posted on Instagram because of a review she did about my line.

    I would never post someone’s pic on my page and then intentionally not tag them.

    She then explained how the situation had occurred.

    When I uploaded the album I was tagging everyone that came to the party and for some reason it wouldn’t let me tag Jackie’s name.

    I figured I would just try again later, but then I realized you can’t add tags after the album is posted!

    Kim went on to say that she actually valued the criticisms in Jackie's review.

    I hung out with @jackieaina in my home and she was super sweet!!

    I love that she has an opinion and I’ll take what she said and use it to better my products.

    And added that she was enjoying the feedback from everyone who's tried the product.

    Honestly, I’m so thankful to everyone who is giving me feedback on my beauty products & I love hearing what everyone loves, and doesn’t love

    Before making this request to Instagram.

    So @Instagram, can you change it so that you can tag people in galleries after they are posted, so I can avoid this issue in the future?

    So, no drama to see here!
