- Jeffree Star apologized after customers found hairs in his Conspiracy eyeshadow palette.
- Jeffree explained that the hairs are actually ribbon fibers, and offered full refunds.
Hello, and welcome to another installment of "beauty vlogger drama you didn't see coming." As basically the whole internet would recall, a few months ago beauty You Tuber Jaclyn Hill was d-r-a-g-g-e-d after customers found hairs and bumps in her Jaclyn Cosmetics lipsticks. And now it looks like another vlogger cosmetics controversy might be afoot because ~mysterious hairs~ were also found some of Jeffree Star's new makeup.
Earlier this month, someone who bought Jeffree's Conspiracy Palette tweeted a video pulling a hair out of one of the eyeshadow colors, leading people to think that his makeup might have some contamination issues.
And after a few days of silence about the issue, yesterday Jeffree spoke out about the hair video, tweeting, "it's come to our attention that a few dozen people out of 1.1 million palettes produced have a few ribbon fibers embedded in their products."
He also added that "moving forward my manufacturer will make sure this never happens again" and offered refunds to anyone with a faulty palette, tweeting, "Anyone that has ANY product issues with any JSC product, my customer service team is available Monday to Friday. Palettes that were [affected,] we have sent out new ones and also given a full refund because that does not reflect how my brand should be represented."
So overall, while this is a lot less of a scandal than Jaclyn's terrifying lipsticks, it's still not the best look—I wouldn't be amped to find random fibers in makeup that I intend to put on my face!
