Kim Kardashian may be a multitalented businesswoman - but it's likely that the first thing that comes to mind when you think of her is how she looks. The Kardashian phenomenon has created a whole new level of impossible beauty standards - in fact, it's almost as if these women aren't actually real. And if you want to achieve Kardashian levels of flawlessness, you can bet that they'll provide a product to help you on your way.
But it's Kim's latest launch that has ignited some online controversy recently. Her cosmetics line, KKW Beauty, has just come out with a range of makeup for the body - as if we didn't have enough to worry about with our faces... And Jameela Jamil, well known online Kardashian troll, had an outstanding response.
Kim Kardashian is arguably the most famous woman in the world.And, although she's often criticized for being a "girl with no talent," Kim has managed to build an incredible empire across a range of spheres.
Although some worry that this has come at a cost.The Kardashians have been accused of prioritizing money over basically any other concern - which could lead to some potentially problematic business decisions.
One of Kim's most successful ventures is her cosmetics line.
But Kim hasn't been allowed to succeed without facing criticism.And one of her biggest critics is British model and The Good Place actress, Jameela Jamil.
Alongside her acting credentials, Jamil is known for something else.
But there has been one major opponent in Jamil's sights.She regularly tweets and posts on Instagram in firm opposition to the Kardashians, whom she sees as symptomatic of society's problems at large.
One issue that Jamil is happy to take on is the dieting industry.The Kardashians tend to use their large social media followings to promote a variety of dubiously healthy products, including laxative teas and appetite suppressant lollipops.
This week, KKW Cosmetics has a new range launching.
But there's one product in the range that has caused quite a stir.
Kim demonstrated this product on Twitter.

And, obviously, Jamil had something to say on the topic.She took issue with the idea that we now need to be self-conscious about our body skin, alongside that on our faces.
Jamil claims that she embraces her "flaws."
She also shouted out those who similarly embrace their flaws, sharing them in a thread.Jamil went on, " Yes I understand we should all be allowed to do whatever makes us feel good, but can we not also question why fully disguising our entire natural selves makes us feel better? Why do we feel bad about ourselves? Who did that? who profits off it? do boys have to live up to the same standards? Are they shamed *as* easily and frequently as us femmes? Isn’t there something a BIT off about making people’s happiness and confidence lie in doll-like perfection? ??♀️ I’m finding it all deeeeeply suspicious myself..."
In particular, Jamil shouted out one model.Winnie Harlow, who rose to fame on America's Next Top Model, managed to turn her vitiligo, which many would see as an imperfection, into her USP.
But many think that this criticism is a little unwarranted.
And that's not all.

And many have made a note of this.

Although there's one thing that we can agree with.
