Jaclyn Hill lipstick drama & macro shots of the complete lipstick collection! #JaclynHilllipsticks
Have you heard about the Jaclyn Hill lipstick drama? Jaclyn Hill (a famous YouTube Beauty Guru- in case you don´t know) just released a 20 shade range of nude lipsticks, but people ordering them are complaining all over social media, to have received fuzzy, gritty or moldy lipsticks. A friend of mine bought the whole collection and kindly send me all her up-close pictures of the lipsticks that I will also include in this post.
RawBeautyKristi (another YouTube Beauty channel) even went so far to show the little hairs and little "balls" in a video under a microscope. But please let´s not forget: everything looks crazier under a microscope! Your own skin would look scary under a microscope!
Jaclyn Hill seems to have constantly bad luck with her makeup releases- who remembers the Becca eyeshadows that were apparently dry and patchy and got pulled from Sephora shortly after their release (I wrote about it here) and the recent Morphe eyeshadows seemed to have quality inconsistencies as well.
RawBeautyKristi thinks that the new released lipsticks might be old- also due to the fact that the logo on the lipstick tubes say "JH"- meaning Jaclyn Hill - despite her recent divorce.
However, Jaclyn since then made a statement on her website, clarifying that the lipsticks were not old.
Now let´s see the pictures my friend kindly send me, so we can build our own opinion on them! These are all unused and that is how they looked like when she opened them up.
OK- that last one looks really beaten up. Little air-bubbles are visible on almost all lipsticks. A couple have the tiniest fuzz. None looked as bad as some lipsticks, that I have seen on Twitter or Instagram. My friend, who send me the pictures, said also that the lipsticks smell not so good.
I guess we will never really know what happened here!
What is really important is, that Jaclyn addressed yesterday the issues in a YouTube video. It is clear to me, that she did not intend on having this situation and she addresses it and offers a full refund to all unsatisfied customers.
Hopefully she is able to produce the lipstick collection without issues in the future?
Do you believe Jaclyn or do you mistrust her now?
