Kylie Jenner defends her makeup lab equipment after backlash


Kylie Jenner, the face of makeup brand Kylie Cosmetics, should know a thing or two about full coverage.

But after catching the heat on social media this week, the reality star and beauty mogul explained why she left her hands, hair and face exposed during a recent visit to a makeup lab. .

The ‘Kardashians’ star came under fire on Wednesday after posting photos and videos of her visit to a makeup lab in Milan, Italy. In her TikTok and Instagram posts, Jenner handled beauty products without wearing sanitary gear.

The photos also saw the star donning a white lab coat but no gloves or hairnet. Instead, she bent over the products with her long hair draped over her shoulders and held cups with her bare, manicured hands.

Critics were quick to call out Jenner for possibly contaminating labware, with some joking in the comments about finding “hair in makeup.”

Among Jenner’s critics was Emmy-winning makeup artist and cosmetics developer Kevin James Bennett, who wrote a scathing post on Instagram about Jenner’s lab visit.

“I have very short hair and have NEVER been allowed into the lab or the manufacturing site without a hairnet, shoe covers, mask…and disposable GLOVES,” Bennett captioned his Wednesday post. “Kylie tricks her followers into thinking she’s making cosmetics.

“Friends, this is not how we create cosmetics and distort how our industry works,” he continued. “Credible manufacturers follow STRICT sanitation protocols to protect you.”

On Thursday, Jenner responded to the backlash, jumping into the comments section of Bennett’s post to defend herself.

“This photo was not taken in a manufacturing facility. I would never circumvent health protocols and neither would any other celebrity or beauty brand owner,” Jenner wrote. “This is a small space staff creating my own fun samples and taking photos for content away from mass production.

“No one is putting customers at risk,” she added. “Shame on you Kevin for spreading false information!!!!”

Sources told Page Six that the cosmetics entrepreneur was “not at the production location when the photos and video were taken,” but rather “just going over colors and imagining new ones.” concept”.

The criticism of Jenner’s lab comes just weeks after she was branded a ‘climate criminal’ for her private jet use.

In July, the celebrity’s Twitter account @CelebJets shared that the reality TV star took a private jet for a 17-minute flight from Camarillo to Van Nuys, Calif., a trip that could have taken about 45 minutes by car.

Social media users were quick to call out Jenner for her travel habits, especially amid the climate crisis. And she was not alone. Musician Taylor Swift received similar feedback earlier this week.

“People are tired of celebrities telling us how we destroy the environment when it’s them,” one Twitter user replied to the @CelebJets post.
