Coty Inc. (COTY) – Get Report said on Thursday that it was expanding its division for Kylie Jenner’s skincare products, Kylie Skin, to France, Germany, the U.K. and Australia.
The direct-to-consumer Kylieskin.com websites will ensure faster delivery of products. They’ll also enable customers to shop using their local languages and currencies, avoiding additional customs fees and duties, the New York beauty-products company said in a statement.
At last check Coty shares jumped 8% to $3.60.
“The launch of the Kylie Skin international websites also reinforces Coty’s strategic commitment to strengthening the direct-to-consumer business model,” said Simona Cattaneo, president of luxury brands at Coty. “We continue to see collections sell out quickly.”
“I always wanted to bring my skincare line to more consumers around the world and this will allow for an easier shopping experience and faster delivery,” Jenner, a fashion designer and entrepreneur with a big social-media following, said in the company statement.
Initial product assortment for the direct-to-consumer websites in both Europe and Australia will include Coconut Body Scrub, Vanilla Milk Toner, Walnut Face Scrub, Hydrating Face Mask, and more.
“All products are cruelty-free, vegan, gluten free, paraben and sulfate free and suitable for all skin types,” Coty said.
Kylie Skin launched in 2019 in the U.S. Jenner started up Kylie Cosmetics in 2015.
In July, Coty shares rose after the company named beauty industry veteran Sue Nabi chief executive.
Nabi’s appointment at the time placed the number of women CEOs in the S&P 500 at 28, or just 6% of the broadest benchmark of U.S.-listed companies.

Kylie Jenner’s makeup company has warned customers that their data — including parts of their credit card numbers — may have been exposed in a Shopify security breach.
Two “rogue” Shopify staff members stole order records and may have exposed customers’ names, email and postal addresses, and order details from less than 200 merchants, the Canadian e-commerce giant said on September 23. Kylie Cosmetics was among those affected, the beauty brand announced on its website.
The breach may have compromised the last four digits of some customers’ credit card numbers, Kylie Cosmetics said in an email first reported by TMZ on September 29 but confirmed that full payment details weren’t accessed.
The cosmetics company, which uses Shopify for its online transactions, said it was “deeply disappointed” to learn that the breach affected its customers.
Kylie Cosmetics launched an investigation into the incident, it said, and was working closely with Shopify to get additional information.
Kylie Cosmetics was working to identify which transactions may have been affected, the company added and said it would inform affected customers.
On September 23, Shopify said there was no evidence that the data had been used, but that it was still in the “early stages” of its investigation. The company was working with the FBI, other international crime agencies, and a digital forensics firm, it said.
The theft wasn’t caused by any “technical
A bikini picture Kylie Jenner posted on Instagram wasn’t just meant for likes — it was also meant for votes.
The 23-year-old influencer and beauty mogul posted two bathing suit snapshots of herself on the platform Monday.
“But are you registered to vote?” the caption of the post read. “Click the link in my bio.. let’s make a plan to vote together.”
Vote.org, a website that allows people to register to vote and check their registration status, reported that the post gave the website a 1,500% increase in traffic. Forty-eight thousand users visited the website’s voter registration and verification tool, a company spokeswoman told Fox. It is unclear how many out of that group actually registered to vote.
Jenner has close to 200 million followers, making her the fifth-most followed account on the app. This post, in particular, garnered just over 9.6 million likes.
Vote.org CEO Andrea Hailey told Fox News, “After Kylie Jenner’s Instagram post, the surge in interactions with Vote.org’s registration verification tool speaks to an energy among young Americans who want to make sure their voices are heard this election.”
