Kim Kardashian West has returned to social media for the first time since she was robbed at gunpoint.

The 36-year-old reality star endured a horrific ordeal in Paris, France, last month when she was tied up by masked men in her apartment and had $10 million worth of jewellery stolen, but after nearly a month away from social networking she returned to Facebook to promote her LuMee phone cases.

Attached to a picture of herself relaxing while on her phone, complete with one of the light-up cases, she wrote: ''Downtime #LumeeCollab.''

Kim also shared a piece from her website by her friend Steph Shep on last-minute Halloween costume ideas, and uploaded another link to her site of a post from sister Kourtney Kardashian containing old videos of the pair dressed up for Halloween during their younger years.

She wrote: ''From Kourtney Kardashian - Love these old videos!''

Kim's last Facebook post came in the early hours of October 3, the day she was robbed, when she shared a picture of herself and sister Kourtney out and about in the French capital.

She captioned the image: ''Kourtney and Kim Take Paris''

The raven-haired beauty is known to be an avid user of social media but has taken nearly a month off all of her channels following her devastating ordeal in the capital city.

Kim's last posts to her 86.2 million Instagram followers came four weeks ago when she shared a number of pictures of herself at the Balenciaga fashion show at Paris Fashion Week.

What's more, she hasn't shared a Twitter post with her 48.8 million followers since October 2.

She wrote: ''Hey guys! Meet my #KimKardashianGame character at the So Chic Boutique in Downtown LA for a surprise ;)''

The star also appeared on a short seven-second clip inviting her friends to go onto her game and then meet her at the boutique for a ''special surprise''.

The star has rarely been seen out and about since her Paris ordeal and is expected to miss out on appearing at the Angel Ball, an annual cancer research fundraiser to honour her late father Robert Kardashian - who died of the disease in 2003 - at Cipriani Wall Street in New York on November 21.

A publicist for the event said: ''Kim is not expected to attend at this time.''

But Kim - who has children North, three, and Saint, 10 months, with husband Kanye West - did attend the rapper's show in Los Angeles last week.
