On Wednesday, Kim Kardashian shared a series of photos featuring the whole Kardashian-West family, including her husband Kanye West, North, their son Saint and 11-month-old daughter Chicago, from the Kardashian-Jenner annual Christmas Eve Party — but it’s North who stole the show.
Given the amount of time her mother spends on developing her makeup brand, it’s no surprise that North chose to try it out on herself and rock red lipstick for the celeb-packed Christmas Eve Party at their mansion.
Many netizens pointed to the fact that little North was wearing makeup – something they deemed inappropriate for a 5-year-old girl.

Kim later revealed that the shade North was wearing might be a forthcoming product from her KKW Beauty…

…some even lashed out at her for what they described as using her child to make money:
Using your child to make money runs in the family, obviously!!!— email@example.com (@denvateverbaug2) 27 December 2018
Omg can't believe you put lipstick on your child to sell your products.— Doughgirl (@pcdoughgirl) 27 December 2018
Shameful is an understatement.
How old is North?— Jo O'keeffe (@keeffe_jo) 27 December 2018
Is there nothing they won't do for money?
Many Twitter users, nonetheless, jumped to Kim’s defence, saying that North’s look was iconic, and that there’s nothing wrong with a kid playing with her mother’s makeup:
