Kylie Jenner is receiving criticism on social media for breaking necessary hygiene guidelines when she visited an Italian cosmetics studio.
On August 3, the makeup tycoon shared a few images. “In the lab making new magic for you guys better than before,” she captioned the photo.
While some fans were curious about the new product Kylie was developing, the majority were startled to see the influencer handling materials without any protective gear like gloves, masks, or hair nets.
Although the cosmetics brand owner maintains that she was in a “personal playhouse” and not a manufacturing plant, this did not stop followers from posting alarming comments on the post, with one user saying that a new pandemic was being created by the lab.
Kevin James Bennett, a prominent cosmetic artist, slammed Kylie Jenner

The owner of a beauty company displayed her silver jewelry and light pink nails while wearing her long hair loose. She can be seen in one of the images looking over a homogenizing kettle that is holding a cosmetic product for the face. Over 6 million people liked Kylie’s post, and 20k people commented on it, the majority of whom questioned Jenner’s safety infractions.
Kevin James Bennett, an Emmy-winning makeup artist known for his work on American Masters, She’s Got the Look, and other television shows also noticed the post.
In a comment, he attacked Kylie Jenner, saying: “My profession includes working with cosmetic manufacturers (and their labs). I’ve never been permitted into the lab without a hair net despite having very short hair. AND HATS. Why are you deceiving your fans? And what illiterate lab allowed you to handle goods without adhering to the right cleanliness procedures?”
After that, he went into great detail about what happened and attacked Kylie in a post on his Facebook.
The photographs were taken in a “personal space, producing my own fun samples and capturing pictures for content,” Kylie promptly replied to the artist. She continued, saying she wasn’t in the “mass manufacturing region” and continued, “No one is endangering customers! Kevin, you should be ashamed for disseminating incorrect information.”
Bennett, who was unconvinced by Kylie’s explanation, noted that she was “looking into an expensive homogenizing kettle that had processed at least 50 litres of a complexion product” and said that she was not persuaded by Kylie’s statement.
Bennett advised Kylie to “accept responsibility for your mistake and move on” in the comments, and Kylie further questioned whether the makeup artist was present when the photographs were shot. The two business owners engaged in some back-and-forth in the comments.
“Ugh, now I have to alter my dog’s name,” she continued.
Similar opinions were expressed by numerous other individuals, who also questioned the safety of Kylie’s cosmetics.
