Five-year-old North West wore bright red lipstick and the internet thinks she looks too 'mature'

Several days have passed since the annual Kardashian-Jenner Christmas bash, and of course, it was as extravagant as ever.

There were the acres of fake snow, the man-made sledding mountain - the venue which was basically Whoville - and of course, the glam mommy-daughter matching outfits, courtesy of Khloé and Kylie. But as we know, the internet hasn't much of an attention span, and as such, the people of social media have now turned their focus to something else: namely North West, and her red lipstick.

Kim took to Twitter to share some photographs from their star-studded holiday party, and one appears to be the unofficial 2019 Kardashian-West holiday card. In it, 5-year-old North is wearing all black with a pop of red on her lips.

One Twitter user replied that the look was "iconic", and Kim proceeded to explain that the shade is from an upcoming lipstick launch from her brand, KKW Beauty.

She then followed up that North picked it out to wear for herself, but this is the internet, and so everyone was quick to respond with opinions as to whether North was too young to be wearing lipstick.

"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," one social media user wrote, while another corroborated "North too young and cute to have that bright red lipstick on. Let her be a child while she can."

Another, however, defended Kim's decision, writing "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."

One individual pointed out that it's entirely normal for young girls to experiment with makeup: "My mom let me wear lipstick on special occasions, just no mascara or foundation or anything like that."

Kim has previously spoken about North's love of beauty products, and explained that there's a line that she doesn't allow her daughter to cross.

"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," she said during an interview with Refinery 29.

"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."
At the end of the day, Kim and Kanye know what's best for their daughter, and we should all just leave them to it.
