“I’m so proud of how the KKW brand has grown over the past four years, and I look forward to working with Coty for the next phase of innovation, advancement, and the ability to bring new launches to customers all around the world,” Kim said in a statement on Jan. 5. “This relationship will allow me to lead the development of the creative elements that I specialize in, while benefiting from the incredible resources of an established company like Coty.”

Coty Inc. made the announcement about the strategic partnership on Monday, stating in a press release that together, they will “focus on entering new beauty categories and global expansion” beyond Kim’s existing product lines. This means development in skincare, haircare, personal care and nail products!

The move comes just months after Coty made a separate deal with Kim’s sister, Kylie Jenner: a 51 percent stake in the 22-year-old’s makeup company, Kylie Cosmetics, for $600 million.

Though Coty acquired a majority stake of Kylie Cosmetics, even with the new partnership, Kim remains the majority owner of KKW Beauty.

“Kim is a true modern day global icon,” Coty’s Chairman and CEO Peter Harf said in a statement. “She is a visionary, an entrepreneur, a mother, a philanthropist, and through social media has an unparalleled ability to connect with people around the world. This influence, combined with Coty’s leadership and deep expertise in prestige beauty will allow us to achieve the full potential of her brands.”
