It’s been a h-e-c-k of a year so far for Jeffree Star. He’d only just moved into a brand-new mega-mansion at the start of the month before fans grew concerned at the news he’d canceled his European masterclass tour with Mmmmitchel "for personal reasons." Then, a few days ago, he announced his breakup with Nate Schwandt, his partner of five years.
Fans were quick to assume that the tour cancellation was because of his breakup, but he hinted on Instagram stories last night that there's more to the story. Trying not to worry fans, Jeffree also added: "I'm doing okay... am I doing great? Absolutely not. But that's okay. I'm not sure who needs to hear this but it's okay to not be okay."
When will the drama end? Spoiler: Never, obviously.
Now, he’s addressed new rumors, but this time about his brand—and frankly, we’re relieved he’s back to business. In a tweet yesterday, he addressed his followers to announce the cancellation of not one but two palettes from Jeffree Star Cosmetics: Thirsty and Alien.
In the tweet, he hinted at future launches coming, explaining that the discontinuations were done to make room for "all the new shit dropping in 2020."
If you’re a makeup collector or hoarder and haven’t yet managed to buy the palettes, we’re afraid it’s bad news—at least for now. Jeffree's followers spent hours swapping tips for tracking down the last remaining palettes in existence, but at the time of writing, not a single palette is available on Morphe's or Jeffree Star Cosmetics' websites, leaving fans flocking to the likes of eBay to track down used versions.
The Thirsty palette, which launched in June 2018, featured a mixture of warm neutrals, canary yellow, neo-mint colors, and a line of metallics.
Featuring shades like Pluto, Phone Home, and Space Cowboy, Alien was a Halloween drop and part of Jeffree’s 2018 holiday collection.
Many fans were distraught with the decision, taking to Twitter to share their devastation.
One "disgusted" fan expressed called the move a "poor decision," criticizing Jeffree for canceling two "more neutral" palettes from the brand.
Others had serious opinions on which palettes should have been discontinued instead...
That said, a ton of his followers praised the decision, expressing excitement for what was next for Jeffree Star Cosmetics in 2020.
One thing's for sure—we're going to be on tenterhooks for whatever's coming next to fill the alien-shaped gap in our hearts.
