KYLIE Jenner hit back at critics who accused her of breaking "sanitary protocols" after she shared photos from inside a cosmetics lab.
The reality star also took backlash for flying private to Milan, shielding her face as she deboarded.
After treating fans to a glimpse at products to come in the form of several sexy photos snapped in a cosmetics lab, Kylie is facing major blowback.
Fans flocked to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum's comments to critique her for bypassing safety and sanitization measures during the visit.
Similarly, cosmetics developer Kevin James Bennett ripped the star on his own Instagram account, posting one of her lab snaps on his own Instagram account.
He wrote in his scathing post: "I know the Kardashian/Jenner stans are going to come for my throat because I'm calling out their cosmetic queen…but WTF @kyliejenner."
He continued: "I'm a cosmetic developer and work with cosmetic manufacturers (and their labs) as part of my job. I have very short hair and I've NEVER been allowed into the lab or onto the manufacturing floor without a hair net, shoe covers, mask…and disposable GLOVES.
"Kylie is gaslighting her followers into thinking she is creating cosmetics. And I'd like to know what ignorant manufacturer (in Italy) let her stage this photo-op in their lab and on the manufacturing floor – without following proper sanitation protocols."
The Instagram post continued: "I need the name because I want to make sure my clients NEVER work with them.
"Folks, this is not the way we create cosmetics and misrepresents how our industry works. Credible manufacturers follow STRICT sanitation protocols to protect you."

KYLIE CLAPS BACK
"Kevin – this picture is not taken in a manufacturing facility," the mom of two wrote.
"I would never bypass sanitary protocols and neither would any other celeb or beauty brand owner."
Kylie continued: "that's completely unacceptable I agree. This is a small personal space creating my own fun samples and taking pictures for content nowhere near the mass manufacturing.
"no one is putting customers at risk ! shame on your kevin for spreading false information !!!!"
It's not just her handling of the products that the makeup mogul is being criticized for, however.
Several commenters accused the star of posing as a scientist.
In the first of several photos snapped, the TV personality wore a white lab coat over a pair of baggy jeans and sneakers, while she reached across the counter for a pink bottle.
Kylie then shared a photo of herself peeking into a huge vat of liquid, examining the shade.
The Hulu star snapped a test tube filled with product and a shelf filled with jars of sparkly makeup.
She leaned over a glass jar of red liquid as it was measured and weighed.
Kylie watched as the makeup spun round and round in the glass, and later she measured gold and white powder by scooping it onto a scale.
She captioned her post: "In the lab creating new magic for you guys 💕 better than ever. @kyliecosmetics."
Fans rushed to Reddit to chat about the photos, with one writing: "I feel like that how you just know this is staged; there’s no way she would be allowed to walk around like that if these were actually products to be sold-maybe in the development stage its ok, but I’m fairly certain she’d have to have a hairnet on the production floor."
"Flew all the way to Milan just to pretend she in the lab making new products that are going to end up being repeat colors of previously released products," a second ripped.
Another remarked: "Came here to say this. A lab coat but no gloves, mask, or hairnet lol she’s such a joke. I also bet this photo was taken 400 times before she liked one enough to post it."
"Yup, it’s basically a photo shoot to attempt to trick the public into thinking she is involved in any of brand. This is nothing more than a quick meet and greet with the people at the lab who actually put forth all the work.
"I’m not even convinced that she designs any of the brand or has any input in it whatsoever. Sadly, she profits the most while all the people who are truly working on the production of all this constant, overproduced crap make a few cents compared to her," a fourth commented.
"Look at her cosplaying as someone who actually works," a fifth wrote.
Kylie has been taking backlash over more than just her lab behavior.
The Kardashians star has been taking heat for her private plane use.
Amid the backlash, she flew to Milan, Italy, where she shielded her face from cameras as she got off the plane.
Recently fans slammed Kylie after the star took a 17-minute flight on her $72.8million private jet.
The young billionaire took a private flight from Camarillo, California to Van Nuys, California.
From Camarillo to the Van Nuys Airport is approximately 40 miles by car with an estimated drive time of 45 minutes.
As reported by the Twitter account @Celebjets, the Hulu star reduced the 45-minute jog down to 17 minutes by taking her $72.8million Global Express jet instead.
Fans were appauled by the waste of fuel and resources with one fan accusing Kylie of being a "climate criminal" and insisting that these types of flights not be allowed.
Another person tweeted that the "worst thing about this is that Van Nuys is 16 miles from Calabasas, where she lives."
They added, "She went 26 miles in the opposite direction to take a flight."
A popular Kardashian-dedicated Reddit page reshared the flight path, captioning the post "Delusional".
Fans rushed to the comment thread to discuss Kylie's 17-minute trek.
One fan commented, "It’s beyond disgusting and horrific!!!!", with another agreeing, "It’s so disgusting."
Another Redditor wrote: "UGH BARF SHE'S SO SPOILED."
