Kim Kardashian hits back at mummy-shamers after uproar over North’s red lipstick

Kim Kardashian has hit back at ‘mummy shamers’ after she was criticised for letting her five-year-old daughter North West wear red lipstick.

The reality star shared a series of photos from her mother Kris Jenner ‘s Christmas Eve party on Instagram and Twitter showing the Kardashian West family together.

Standing beside husband Kanye West and their three children North, Saint and Chicago, many people took exception to their eldest daughter’s lip colour.

After being bombarded with criticism on Twitter and Instagram, Kim insisted her daughter had chosen the lipstick herself, and she had decided to allow North to wear it because red is a festive colour.

Responding to one Twitter follower, Kim said: "She picked it though! It’s a special occasion."

In another message, Kim revealed the shade may just inspire a product for her KKW Beauty line: "It just might be a new Classic Red Lip I have launch (sic) VERY soon."

People were divided on social media with some claiming it was ‘inappropriate’ for a five-year-old to wear the shade, while others claimed it was normal for a little girl to enjoy playing with make-up.

One Twitter user wrote: "North is too young to wear bright red lipstick. Be careful Kim not to let her have everything she thinks she wants, her ego will get too big and become too self centered. Catch it now! Just my opinion and life experience."

Another agreed: "North too young and cute to have that bright red lipstick on. Let her be a child while she can."

However, another defended Kim’s decision: "North West is playing with makeup just like every little girl. The crazy thing about all these trolls criticizing her red lipstick is, North West can drop a red lipstick tonight and they will be sold out in 10 seconds."

Kim has previously spoken about North’s love of cosmetics, although she has a line she doesn’t like her daughter to cross.

She told Refinery29 recently: "I don’t think she should wear lashes or too dark of a lipstick. I want her to express herself, but I want her to be appropriate, too.

"I already know North is into makeup for sure. She had friends over this weekend and some of her girlfriends came and they were just all in her room, giving themselves makeovers. I was like, OK, she’s really, really into makeup. When companies send makeup and I have a lot, I’ll give it to her."
