Why does everyone hate Sanders Kennedy?! 

Hello my little buttons!! 
I am a YouTube junkie, and I can admit that. I watch YouTube while making the kids lunch boxes, while I’m doing my house work, cooking dinner, and pretty much every other sneaky moment I can. I watch a wide variety of channels but one of my favourites channel genre’s …as controversial as it is….is YouTube gossip/drama channels. 

One rather large gossip channel is Sander Kennedy, recently his subscriber count has blow up but I’ve been watching him from back in the day before he came really popular and I’ve gotta say I love him! 

As well as gossip videos Sanders has made some really heart wrenching personal videos about his life and his past which must have been incredibly difficult to talk about but his intention was to help other people. I really admired him for this as putting yourself out there online can leave you very vulnerable and exposed.

I watch pretty much every video he posts as I love to hear what he has to say, I think he’s hilarious and so entertaining. Even if there are 100 other YouTubers with the same gossip video I always go to Sanders first. He’s the kind of guy that as I’m watching I feel like we’re having a coffee and a good old catch up, which is exactly what I want from a gossip channel!!! 

People are complaining he’s made too many videos on Jeffree Star, personally I would disagree. JS is a huge topic of conversation right now and the people that follow that drama want to know every little detail and as JS keeps f*cking up and as more issues are coming to light, there’s more gossip all the time!! 

There seems to be quite a lot of bitchiness going on between quite a few of the gossip channel creator’s, but to be honest I don’t take it all too seriously. YouTube is there for your entertainment, I get that some people don’t enjoy watching conflict, which is fine as they’re a million other videos to watch. At the end of the day everyone is trying to grow their channels and as much as people deny it conflict and gossip gets views, I don’t meant that maliciously it’s the truth lol.

I really hope I don’t get a lot of hate for this post as it’s meant to be light hearted but I just don’t get why he’s so hated!!? Sanders is one of my favourite YouTubers  I love his sass and I don’t think he’s a bad person at all. I want to say that I do love other drama channels, some of which seem to be “anti Sanders” and this isn’t me taking any kind of side I just think it’s quite an interesting topic going on right now in the YouTube world. 

What do you think about Sanders?! 

Lots of love

Jaclyn Hill and Becca Cosmetics discontinue unreleased eyeshadow palette?!

image

Hello my little buttons!

In the latest YouTube gossip, Jaclyn Hill (makeup artist, YouTuber) and Becca Cosmetics recently created the Champagne Collection, a highlight and blush palette as well as an eyeshadow palette. Jaclyn allegedly spent a long time creating the face palette and it seems to have been well received, most people love it and it continues to get good reviews.

The eyeshadow on the other hand was a different story, it was a last minute creation that Jaclyn only actually created one shade out of five. As it was a rushed product Becca decided to have it produced somewhere else. Instead of it being made in the USA it was made in China which was clearly cheaper and more importantly they could make it a lot faster.

From reviews it seems the quality of the shadows were really varied, some people were reporting beautiful creamy eyeshadows where as others shadows were dry, stiff and patchy. In response to the bad reviews Jaclyn Hill made a Snapchat informing everyone the palette was going to be discontinued before it was even released as neither herself or Becca cosmetics were happy with the quality of the Shadows.

Everyone seems to have an opinion on this, me personally I think it was incredibly brave of them to pull the palette. It shows true loyalty to their customers and viewers that they were willing to own up to what happened and explain the situation. If you think about it, it must have been incredibly embarrassing for them to admit they messed up but I think in the long run it’s for the best. Although I don’t own any Becca cosmetics palettes or anything at all from the brand to be honest I have heard amazing things. Their eyeshadow formula is known for being second to none so in the long run this could have really damaged Becca cosmetics and Jaclyn Hill reputation. More so than them comming clean and being honest about the balls up.

They must have also lost quite a bit of money by pulling the eyeshadow palette but if it were to be released with the current inconsistencies in formula, the consequences could have been disastrous for both parties.

I know what your thinking, why did they chose to use a cheaper factory to make the product in the first place? It all seems to come down to the fact that it was rushed through and they took a gamble trying somewhere new to manufactor their product. We all make mistakes in life and I’m pretty sure this won’t be happening again anytime soon. The face palette on the other hand is still available to buy and looks gorgeous!

I’d love to hear in the comments below what you think this whole situation!

JEFFREE STARS A HYPOCRITE?!?!

image

Hello my little buttons!

Here on online beauty community there’s nothing better than a little bit of YouTube gossip, and have I got something juicy for u.

If you haven’t been living in a cave for the past few weeks I’m sure you’ll have heard about Jeffree stars recent Snapchat about Kylie Jenner and her lip glosses. In the Snapchat Jeffree Star was demonstrating how the Lipgloss wands almost fan out even though they’re brand new, he then went on to describe the product is “janky” and said Kylie Jenner “half-assed” it. He also said “no offence to her but these a f*cking garbage” before dramatically throwing them in the bin. This created huge drama with many others agreeing about the poor quality of the Lipgloss wand, bearing in mind they cost £18 it’s really not exceptible. At the same time wow that’s throwing huge shade Kylies way and I’m sure the snap chat effected the sales of the Lipgloss as Jeffree star is huge in the online beauty community and people really value his opinion.

Recently a relatively small YouTuber called rockyroadkill made a video called “Jeffree star cosmetic skinfrost DISASTER” in the video he explained how on the day of the skin frost highlighter pre-release at dragcon he drove for 3 hours then waited in line for the highlighter in the shade King Tut. He then goes on to say how he opened the highlight to look at himself in the mirror when the pan of product “fell out and f*cking broke” he’s “not mad at the company” and tried patching it up himself then attempted to review the highlighter but you could really tell the excitement had gone for him. He still said “these highlights are everything” and went on to talk about how Jeffree is “a thousand times prettier in real life” and how he was going to email the company as he was not mad at Jeffree or Jeffree Star cosmetics he simply wanted a new one. I think his video was fully justified, you could you tell how much he adored Jeffree and his products but was just disappointed in what has transpiered after purchasing the highlight.

This is where it gets good, Jeffree leaves a comment on rockyroadkills video which he deleted swiftly after.

*shocked face* I then re read it…*shocked face* again! I was pretty much speechless to be honest which is a rarity for me. Rockyroadkill was being honest about the product, he was actually really nice about the whole thing, he could of easily made a video ranting and raving but he didn’t.

Don’t get me wrong I LOVE Jeffree star, I watch his channel and have heard many good things about his cosmetics…. But in this sinario I thinks he’s wrong. Sorry Jeffree don’t hate me! You can’t give out huge criticisms of other people’s products and not take critism back, nothing is ever perfect amd things do go wrong, it’s life. Maybe he lashed out in anger and once calmed down deleted the comment? Although it’s been deleted it seems many people screen shotted the pic and it was easy for me to find after a quick Google search.

What do you think? Was Jeffree being a hypocrite or do you agree with his comment? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
