Jeffree Star has been a YouTube star for a relatively short period of time but his “star”dom has risen fairly quickly. His over the top style, makeup, and general persona have caught a lot of interest. Recently he’s launched into his own makeup line that has received rave reviews by fellow YouTubers. His liquid lipsticks are known to sell out as soon as they’re launched and his new eyeshadow palette has been highly sought after…..until now.
Watching your favorite YouTuber take a spiral down the “pay me to say anything” hole has been happening more and more frequently. It’s hard to know who to trust. You watch someone with millions of followers say something is amazing, buy it, and find that it’s actually garbage. But the pay-for-good reviews is happening more and more, and it seems no one wants to really be honest about how a product is performing and risk being blacklisted by that brand. Until now. Stephanie Nicole is quickly becoming the go-to reviewer that tells it like it is, and more times then not, she tells you its crap and she’s right.
Stephanie has recently posted a very long and blasting video regarding the character of Jeffree Star. I want to share it because it’s truly insightful. It definitely was eye opening. And it really draws awareness to who we support, whether it be by watching a video, buying a product, or just liking/subscribing. I will not be supporting JS products, his videos or anything to do with his brand. I liked Jeffree Star until I saw him smoking pot in the his videos. I think it sends a horrible message glamorizing drug use. So many teens look up to him, and watch his tutorials. But that aside, there is much worse things about his character that Stephanie Nicole brings to light. She shares actual video footage/tweets/messages of his antics, and violence against women.
