Kylie Jenner just got compared to a celebrity over twice her age. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star has been filling her Instagram with the usual stylish and high-end displays that fans have gotten accustomed to, although one particular image seems to have seen the makeup mogul likened to a specific famous face.
Kylie’s Saturday update came as a booty-flaunting one. The 22-year-old Kylie Cosmetics founder posed in an all-white outfit comprised of high-waisted leather pants and a matching jacket. Kylie was snapped from behind for maximum effect.
The update generated the usual outpouring of love seen on Kylie’s Instagram. Gushing comments came in from the moment the update went live, although not all responses were giving the mother of one the thumbs-up.
“I’m sorry but she looks just like ‘Lil Kim…wtf do they do to their faces and who is telling them this looks good? Becuz it doesn’t. Sorry,” a fan wrote.
Lil’ Kim is 45 years old.
The comment racked up 34 likes in 19 hours. Not the world’s most popular comment, but it didn’t sink to the bottom of the comments section, either.
This wouldn’t be the first time that Kylie has launched comments over how old she looks. Earlier this year, The Daily Mail ran an entire story on “why” the world’s youngest billionaire looks “a decade older” than her 22 years.
By and large, the article covered whether or not Jenner has undergone cosmetic surgery, stipulating that Kylie has always vehemently denied going under the knife.
Kylie has, however, admitted to receiving cosmetic lip injections. As to the surgery accusations, Kylie maintains that her makeup skills are responsible for her changing looks. Well, that, and getting older.
Kylie isn’t the only member of her family to have generated celebrity comparisons in a less-than-favorable way. Earlier this year, 39-year-old Kim Kardashian was slammed for a KKW Beauty promo as she posed with heavy makeup for a ’90s-inspired collection.
Kim was likened to deceased singer Aaliyah, with many fans appearing horrified.
“What an absolute insult to Aaliyah to compare her to this cheap and common woman. Aaliyah had talent and class, something this ho will never have, she’ll be turning in her grave,” a user had commented.
Dripping in glam she may be, but Kylie isn’t 100% about the hair extensions, fake nails, heavy lashes, and warpaint.
The end of November brought a very low-frills (and sexy) post-shower shot from Kylie, also revealing her natural hair. Kylie even admitted that her hair hadn’t been that length since she was 15 years old.
A quick scroll through Kylie’s Instagram does show makeup as dominating, but the odd no-makeup snap is there. Handy for when you’re running a beauty brand: 2019 saw Jenner launch her Kylie Skin company.
Kylie first received lip injections in her teens. The star admitted to feeling insecure over her lips.
The effect? Well, the work may have boosted Jenner’s confidence, but the timing came in handy. 2015 saw Kylie launch her best-selling Kylie Cosmetics brand. The rising teen became increasingly idolized for her full and plump pout. While Kylie openly admitted to having received lip injections, you could say that the damage was done. Teenage bathrooms across America quickly filled up with Lip Kits – fans still question how moral promoting an artificial pout was.
