(Newser) – It's not every day that a new packet of makeup smells so bad it needs to be taken outside to air out. Such is the conundrum facing teen beauty mogul Kylie Jenner after her much-anticipated Royal Peach Eyeshadow Palette, which IOL reports sold out in nine minutes last month, is being slammed for smelling like "spray paint" and "paint thinner." TMZ reports that more than 15 complaints have been filed with the Better Business Bureau, with one user complaining of a "horrible headache."

Jenner, who's known for turning to social media to warn her fans about fake products, has yet to respond to complaints, but Kylie Cosmetics has announced that it's a packaging adhesive and not the makeup itself that's causing the smell, reports Cosmopolitan. It's unclear whether the packaging has been changed, but the BBB notes fewer reports this week than last. (The massive Kardashian brand encompasses hundreds of trademark applications alone.)
