Turns Out Kim Kardashian West's New Emoji App Can Be Used in All Situations
Why use words when Kim's emojis can do the talking for you?
Kim Kardashian West is continuing to take over the world one selfie (emoticon) at a time.
That’s right – the reality star-turned-entrepreneur has just created a customized collection of emojis – aptly titled Kimoji – that includes more than 250 food, beauty and pop culture-related images that the mother of two has been working on with a design team for the past two years. (Think: Kim’s scantily clad booty and penchant for selfies.)
More importantly, however, is the question plaguing every avid emoji user: “Is there a good time to ever use Kim’s butt emoji?” Why yes, yes of course. In fact, the Kimoji app is appropriate to use in most – if not all – situations, and will probably, most likely, definitely eradicate any remaining in-person interaction. Because no somber soliloquy quite trumps sending an actual emoji of Kim’s epic crying face (not even the Oxford Dictionary’s pick for 2015 Word of the Year).
Take a peek at a handful of the star’s newly released emojis below, and find our recommendations for sending out these gems – like when announcing your food baby to the world or sharing your proposal for what should be considered the new “hair flip.”
The Contouring Emoticon
When to Use: When describing what goes into really looking fresh for a GNO to your clueless boyfriend; when admitting how you’re actually spending your Saturday night (binge-watching and trying Kardashian makeup tutorials)
The ‘Basic’ Emoticon
When to Use: When your friend’s “Netflix and chill” excuse becomes the norm; when you catch yourself at Starbucks twice in one day and just have to ‘gram it to let the world know your level of self-awareness; when you finally get fed up with your S.O.’s over-usage of “tho” and “got me like”
The Butt Emoticon
When to Use: When “talk to the hand” just sounds too elementary; when you’re itching for a new text greeting that evokes sass and charm; when you’re feeling The Weeknd’s new single and the red dress-wearing dancer emoji doesn’t do your excitement justice
The Mani Emoticon
When to Use: To alert your S.O. of upcoming BFF bonding time (that may or may not also include an hours-long marathon of Vanderpump Rules); when “hair flip” just feels stale; to alert your friends, family and acquaintances about your latest nail alert ‘gram that is in dire need of some love
The ‘Married’ Jacket Emoticon
When to Use: To send to your BFF after you and your crush make unexpected, meaningful eye contact; when the world is graced with a selfie of David Beckham a.k.a. your first imaginary husband; to swap #relationshipgoals
The Waist Training Emoticon
When to Use: To send your suspected Secret Santa in case he or she had any doubts about your fascination/obsession with waist trainers/the Kardashian-Jenners
The Cry-Face Emoticon
When to Use: when Star Wars: The Force Awakens is sold out yet again; to illustrate your sadness about the dime-size amount of guac in your monstrous burrito; when your crush accidentally brushes your hand and you realize he’s not actually proposing
The Preggo Emoticon
When to Use: When one too many cupcakes have left you with the most impressive of food babies; to subtly make a jab at everyone’s endless Facebook baby announcements (since your idea of adulting is paying bills online in your cat onesie)
The Selfie Emoticon
When to Use: When you’re wondering if your fifth selfie of the day is too much (answer: WWKD – What Would Kim Do?)
