Earlier today, the media-savvy reality stars debuted a totally twinning (and topless!) commercial on Instagram, teasing a sisterly collaboration with Kylie Cosmetics, called KKW x Kylie.
The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner siblings posted the promo video, which features her striking a pose next to her look-alike big sis, and the Internet is going crazy over the possibility of a Kim Lip Kit.
In the teaser, Kim poses next to her little sister, who is practically a mirror image of her, while they both primp at the shoot. Makeup artists paint a nude palette on the sisters’ lips and eyes. Then the words “KKW x Kylie” and “Coming Soon” flash across the screen, majorly hinting to the world that the sisters were teaming up for Ky’s wildly popular cosmetics line.
The mysterious post has only been up a few hours, but it already has over 2.8 million views. A legion of fans wanting to copy Kim’s signature look have been whipped into a frenzy, wondering how and when they can get their hands on Kim and Kylie’s new line. While the duo has not officially announced the team up, we think you should look out for an official announcement on Insta any day now…
Kylie came out with her first Lip Kit collection on Nov. 30, 2015 and it sold out online within the first minute. The 19-year-old mogul then launched Kylie Cosmetics‘ in 2016 and has steadily grown her empire from creating lip glosses and lip sticks to producing eye shadow, liner and now highlighter.
But it hasn’t all been roses for the beauty mogul. Last year, the Lip Kit line came under controversy for receiving an F with the Better Business Bureau after customers complained. But, the entrepreneurial teen quickly remedied the situation and then fired back at the haters.
“I’m sick and tired of people coming for my business. I love everything about Kylie’s Cosmetics and I will do anything in my power to protect and improve it every day and make you guys happy,” she wrote on her website. I don’t want to respond to the haters but you guys deserve an answer and to know the facts. I love you and apologize to anyone who felt the urge to complain and didn’t receive the service they deserve.”
She continued, “You guys are the reason I keep going and I’m motivated every day to make Kylie Cosmetics the best it can be,” “I’m continuing to learn and I just want to make everyone happy. Because so many of you spoke out, I’m excited to tell you that the Better Business Bureau has looked at the facts and changed the rating.”
Well it looks like she kept her commitment to her fans and we wouldn’t be surprised if this new venture with Kim is Kylie’s most successful item yet.

Beloved actor and dancer Patrick Swayze‘s estate items are hitting the auction block in Los Angeles on April 28—and fans should be on the ready. Personal items once belonging to the actor, who passed away in 2009 at the age of 57, range from awesome to rare to just plain bizarre.
But with a collection like this, a few lucky film buffs and Swayze fans are likely to have the time of their lives at the auction this month—that is, if you have a chunk of change to spare.
The items to be auctioned include the leather jacket Swayze wore in his iconic role in Dirty Dancing, the Hawaiian shirt his character wears early on in Ghost, and some dashing Civil War-era capes from Swayze’s time starring in the popular mini-series North and South. We weigh in on the priciest and most interesting pieces up for bid below.
1. Patrick’s DeLorean
That’s right&mdashlPatrick Swayze had a personal 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 Coupe in his possession. The cars were only made from 1981 to 1983, but are most famous for being the face of the time-machine which Marty McFly travels through time in the Back to the Future movies. With the bid estimate between $30,000 – $40,000, and the current online bid already past $32,000, there’s a strong chance this iconic machine is going to be a top-earner. Although a flux capacitor is not included, at least that price tag includes a cassette-playing stereo.
2. Patrick’s Surfboard
If you are in the market for some totally righteous water sports gear, look no further. The actual surfboard that was custom made for Swayze’s use while filming the cult favorite Point Break is hitting the auction block. The movie famously co-starred Keanu Reeves as an undercover FBI agent trying to bust a gang of surfers for bank robbery. And who played the rebellious kingpin of the whole surfing gang?Well, Patrick immortalized the iconic Bodhi right on this very surfboard. With the estimate for bids ranging between $4,000 – $6,000, online bids are already up to $10,000.
3. Patrick’s Ghost Memorabilia
For an estimated price of $2,000 – $4,000, you can wear the same maroon shirt and grey sneakers that Patrick donned for his role haunting Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg in the 1990 sleeper hit Ghost. Disclaimer: he wasn’t wearing this outfit for the famous pottery scene (he was wearing decidedly less for that), but this is still a pretty amazing find, especially considering that this film is now a classic. Just looking at that shirt makes us want to reunite estranged lovers.
4. Patrick’s Dirty Dancing Memorabilia
Nobody puts baby in a corner, but we might have to take a timeout of our own to get over this cool find. Patrick was wearing this very jacket when he spoke many of the often-quoted lines from the 1980’s favorite Dirty Dancing. Patrick starred as Johnny Castle alongside Jennifer Grey as Baby Houseman as they swayed to both 1960’s tunes and 1980’s hits. Although bidding was estimated at $4,000 – $6,000, online bidding has already hitched up the price past $12,000.
5. Patrick’s Gift From Demi Moore
If you buy this key chain, you will be able to hold in your hands the very keepsake that Demi Moore gave to Patrick while they were filming Ghost. And, most appropriately, it’s even shaped like a little goblin. Probably the most touching part of this piece is the message which is engraved on the back: “To Patrick, Ghost, July-Dec 1989, Love Demi”. We’re not crying, you’re crying. And, oh yeah, the asking price? The estimate is between $1,000 – $2,000.
6. Patrick’s Saturday Night Live Scripts
This lot is a collection of scripts for the October 27, 1990 episode of SNL which Patrick hosted. Sure, there’s many duplicates of different papers in the lot (including revised scripts, an SNL weekly schedule, promo script sheets, and even a few packets with Swayze’s name on them), so what Swayze actually used is up for debate, but there’s no denying that anything to do with his historical SNL appearance is priceless. This lot is hitting the auction block pretty quietly, as if anyone could forget the famous (and hilarious) Chippendales skit that Patrick performed on SNL with Chris Farley, which has since become iconic. The estimate for this lot is between $600 – $800, but is worth much more in comedy gold.
7. Patrick’s North and South Gear
At one point, North and South was the Game of Thrones of television. Feuding families, countries at war… okay, maybe a few less dragons, but the Civil War mini-series was also an early staple in Swayze’s career. Swayze’s dashing character, Orry Main, often wore this blue cape in the series. The show’s guest stars are also incredible, including the likes of Gene Kelly, Johnny Cash, Elizabeth Taylor, and Robert Carradine. If you can drop the estimate bid price of $600 – $800, you can have a cooler Civil War reenactment costume than all of your friends.
8. Patrick’s Ford King Ranch Pickup Truck
If you’re in the market for transportation and a DeLorean isn’t really your style, your next option might be Patrick Swayze’s personal King Ranch pickup truck. Here’s the thing, though. There’s a super touching story behind his car. The listing says that, “On the morning of Patrick Swayze’s 53rd birthday in 2005, his wife parked this truck right outside their kitchen window where he got his first cup of coffee. He grinned, and knew it was his right away. He loved everything about it, dubbing it ‘The Cowboy Cadillac.’ It was his daily driver.” So, anyways. If you can handle the emotions, and if you can afford the estimate bid of $8,000 – $12,000, bid away.
9. Patrick’s Harley Davidson Motorcycle
Your final transport option from Patrick’s estate is somewhere between the everyday pickup truck and the ostentatious DeLorean: a nice, kickass Harley Davidson driven by Mr. Swayze himself. Sure, the bid estimate is between $8,000 – $10,000. And so what if the current bid is already up to $7,500? There are probably very few things on this earth that are actually this cool. Did we mention the bike boasts a fiery red paint job? Again, we say: incredibly cool.
10. Patrick’s Gold Pocket Watch
This last item might be a little more delicate than the rest of the items, but don’t let it fool you. Maybe it has less of a cinematic history, but it’s sure worth something. Patrick’s Patek Philippe pocket watch is made of 18K yellow gold, circa 1915, and is estimated to sell for $8,000 – $10,000. It also goes to show the huge range in the types of things that are up for auction in the Swayze estate.
Other interesting items that are up for sale include African drums and spears, a range of rustic furniture, western horse sculptures, a variety of horse saddles, neck ties, cowboy boots, decorative pieces, and other personal items, all of which are up for auction at Julien’s Live. Bid online or head to the auction in person in LA on April 28.
