Sephora carries a Kat Von D makeup line that's drawn criticism over its branding in the past—a "Celebutard" shade garnered a whole load of bad press in 2012—and this latest slip up is just as bad. Business Insider reports that the line currently includes a lipstick called "Underage Red," which is drawing criticism after an offended customer took to Twitter to express her disgust.

According to the report, Sephora has carried the lipstick shade for about a year (it's noted as a "cult favorite" on the site), and M.A.C carries a similar shade also called "Underage." Neither Sephora nor Kat Von D has addressed the backlash yet.
