Staff at the factory where Kylie Jenner's makeup is made felt 'degraded' after they were forced to work in 'horrific' conditions and even banned from looking at the reality star when she visited, former workers have claimed.
Jenner, 23, launched KYLIE Lip Kits by Kylie Jenner six years ago before it was renamed Kylie Cosmetics a year later.
Spatz Laboratories in Oxnard, California, has manufactured the cosmetic products since the start of the brand and former employee Irene Lopez was hired to work on the assembly line in 2016 by a temp agency.
Kylie occasionally visited the factory, which she does not own or control, with her mother Kris Jenner to check in on the manufacturing of her products.
But Irene, 32, told The Sun: 'Before they would come in our supervisors would tell us, 'You are not allowed to talk with them, you guys are supposed to keep on working, you guys are not allowed to take any pictures or ask any questions.''Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
The former employee added that Kylie would never talk to staff and would watch on silently as her glossy range was made in front of her eyes.

Another former Spatz Laboratories employee Martha Molasco, who worked there from 2015 to 2017 after being hired by a temp agency, said there were rules for staff when Kylie visited the factory.
The 31-year-old said: 'Supervisors would say, 'Don't talk to them, don't even look at them.''
There is no indication that Kylie or Kris gave any instructions to staff or knew about the rules.
Irene said she felt 'degraded' during her time at the company and said staff were expected to complete quotes of up to 1,200 products every day.

She said: 'The supervisors I had there had been very degrading towards everybody. Everything had to be perfectly made and if it wasn't they would throw it away in your face like it was trash. If you didn't go fast enough, you were going to get fired.'
The former employee said she was often left in tears after being scolded for not being fast enough on the production line.
One time, she claims her supervisor threw all of her completed products in the trash, forcing her to start all over again.
