Popular YouTuber and makeup mogul Jaclyn Hill has responded to mass backlash from fans, who took to social media to voice their complaints regarding hidden changes to her Morphe eyeshadow palette.

After initially revealing her collaboration with the massive makeup brand in 2017, Hill unveiled a “Volume 2” edition of the product in February 2020.

Hill claimed that the makeup palette boasted the “exact same formula” as her previous Morphe eyeshadows — but one YouTube beauty reviewer found a major discrepancy in the star’s statement.

YouTuber ‘Jen Luvs Reviews’ discovered that the formula for Hill’s first Morphe palette had been changed from its 2017 edition, which now contains coconut oil and shea butter — as well as carmine, a red dye made from beetles, causing her palette to lose its vegan status.

The same goes for her newer eyeshadow release, leaving fans across the net frustrated that the palette contains animal products.

“It is NOT okay to turn a vegan friendly product not-vegan friendly without disclosing it,” one critic Tweeted. “There’s ZERO need for animal brands to use animal bi-products or test on animals. Testing or using beings that have zero ability consent is absolutely wrong.”

Morphe themselves have since responded to the outrage, admitting that they changed the formula while explaining that their updates were out of Hill’s control.

Jaclyn likewise reacted to the matter, clarifying that she was aware her formula would be changed but was not informed about specific ingredients being added to the carefully-crafted mix of products, and expressed sympathy for vegans unable to use the palette.

However, fans are still upset regarding the change, with Jen Luvs Reviews asking the makeup mogul why she’d apparently lied about changes to the formula in her video about her “Volume 2” palette.

Thus far, Hill has yet to reply to her queries — but this isn’t the first time she’s faced backlash, after experiencing similar outrage in 2019 when her lipsticks were discovered to contain hair, bumps, and other massive texture issues.

While she made a massive comeback after the drama and even admittedto self-medicating her anxiety with alcohol, it seems that the makeup star has found herself at the center of another massive controversy, once again.


Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
