Kylie Jenner has landed herself in hot water again! This time, it's her makeup line that has her in trouble. It's not like it's the first time one of the Jenner girls' product lines has faced controversy. The reality star-turned-social media-darling-turned-makeup maverick is facing a storm of criticism following the March 12th release of her new line of blushes. Some fans, particularly older fans and the parents of young fans, have taken a distinct dislike to the names of the blushes, to be specific. For someone who has such a young fanbase (especially teens and tweens), Kylie's new blush line has names that are a bit...inappropriate, to say the least.
Going by names like X Rated, Hopeless Romantic, Hot and Bothered, Barely Legal, and Virginity, it's clear why parents might balk at buying their teen princess something so sexual in nature, even if it's just colorful powder they put on their faces. The names feel way over the top, especially when you consider Kylie's fan base. Young teens look up to her as a role model and some people are asking, what kind of example is this?
Understandably, some people are up in arms about what they feel is Kylie hawking her own adult lifestyle on kids. Some even brought up the fact that Kylie began a relationship with a man several years her senior while she was still underage, which makes her Barely Legal blush all the more nauseating.
Though there's been an outcry, Kylie's not likely to see a drop in business, but that's only our own speculation saying that. Kylie's Barely Legal blush is currently sold out, which proves our point very nicely. Regardless of whether or not we like the name, it's Kylie's brand to do what she pleases with, but it would have been nice if she thought a little more about who she's selling her products to when she thinks of their cool, "trendy" names. What do you think? Is this whole thing being blown out of proportion, or do you think the names are wildly inappropriate? Let us know in the comments!
