Kylie Jenner defends her makeup lab gear after backlash

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

But after causing a stir on social media this week, the reality star and beauty mogul has explained why she left her hands, hair and face unprotected when she recently visited a makeup lab.

The Kardashians star came under fire on Wednesday after posting pictures and videos from her visit to a makeup lab in Milan, Italy. In her TikTok and Instagram posts, Jenner handled beauty products without wearing toiletries.

The photos also revealed that the star wore a white lab coat but no gloves or a hairnet. Instead, she bent over products, her long hair cascading down her shoulders, and held mugs in her bare, manicured hands.

Critics were quick to call out Jenner about the possible contamination of the lab materials, with some joking in the comments about finding “hairs in makeup.”

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

“I have very short hair and I was NEVER allowed into the lab or production floor without a hairnet, shoe covers, mask… and disposable gloves,” Bennett captioned his Wednesday post. “Kylie tricks her followers into believing that she makes cosmetics.

“Guys, this is not how we make cosmetics and misrepresents how our industry works,” he continued. “Credible manufacturers follow strict hygiene protocols to keep you safe.”

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

“This image was not taken at a manufacturing facility. I would never circumvent hygiene protocols and neither would any celebrity or beauty brand owner,” Jenner wrote. “This is a little personal space where I create my own fun patterns and take photos for content that doesn’t even come close to mass production.

“Nobody puts customers at risk,” she added. “Shame on you Kevin for spreading false information!!!!”

Sources told Page Six that the cosmetics entrepreneur “wasn’t on the production floor when the pictures and videos were taken,” but was “simply reviewing colors and coming up with new concepts.”

Jenner’s lab criticism comes just weeks after she was called a “climate criminal” for her private jet use.

In July, the famous jet tracker Twitter account @CelebJets shared that the reality star took a 17-minute flight from Camarillo to Van Nuys, California on a private jet, a journey that would have taken around 45 minutes by car be able.

Social media users were quick to target Jenner about her travel habits, especially amid the climate crisis. And she wasn’t alone. Musician Taylor Swift received a similar backlash earlier this week.

“People are tired of celebs telling us how we’re destroying the environment when they are,” one Twitter user replied to @CelebJets’ post.
