Kylie Jenner causes controversy with X-rated blushes

Kylie Jenner recently announced that she was adding a set of blushes to her ever-growing beauty line. Of course, the internet went wild with anticipation for the drop.

But when the young star finally revealed the names of the five shades, people’s excitement turned to anger. With titles like Barely Legal and Virginity, you can understand why.

The 19-year-old has been criticised for sexualising young girls and falling into that age-old trap that sex sells.

As a member of one of the most famous families on the planet, does Kylie really need to resort to X-rated tactics?

One thing’s certain. All of this controversy will only serve to generate more publicity for Kylie Cosmetics, ensuring another sell-out collection.

If you’re still interested in getting your hands on a blush, they launch at 10pm tonight.
