Oh Jaclyn, why are you slackin’
Making lipsticks full of holes?
Tacky silver packaging with that rhinestone
With the actual product covered in mold!
Oh Jaclyn, why are you lying
Selling contaminated lipsticks from twenty fifteen
Your company name doesn’t match the logo
Are you sure you didn’t go thrifting?
Oh Jaclyn, you’re so problematic
All your launches and collabs always have some issues
Then you go on Snapchat, crying
Crying fake tears, reaching for overpriced tissues
Oh Jaclyn, I’m so sorry
There are drama channels talking about you
People are speculating, formulating theories
Why don’t you come out with it, just say what’s true?
Oh Jaclyn, you need divine intervention
And a break from trying to make a quick buck
Maybe go on Kasamba because you need it
Since you’re running out of luck.
Oh Jaclyn, I wish at this point
An actual microbiologist would come through
With photos of what’s going on with those lipsticks
A logical explanation, with concrete proof
Oh Jaclyn, please recall your products
Do some damage control as soon as you can
Your lipsticks are a health hazard,
You might be losing followers: you need to go save those Stans.
The beauty community can’t catch a break. There’s a new scandal each week. Jaclyn is a twenty eight year old YouTuber that’s recently come out with her own makeup line, and she’s been teasing about it since 2015.
Four years later, we have her brand, Jaclyn Cosmetics.
What’s the issue? Um, her first ever product, a cream lipstick, So Rich, that has twenty shades to pick from, also comes with hair, holes, bits of plastic and mold. Actual mold. The logo on the lipstick doesn’t match the logo on the unit carton. This led YouTuber Raw Beauty Kristi to theorize that the JH (for Jaclyn Hill) on the product must have been PRE-Jaclyn’s divorce from husband Jon Hill. The brand is called Jaclyn Cosmetics but the tube says JH:
Jaclyn Cosmetics is the shadiest new brand on the Internet:
• People that paid for expedited shipping never received their products early.
• Jaclyn never sent out PR packages ahead of time – to push sales because there were no negative reviews to begin with.
• Negative comments have magically disappeared from every Instagram post of theirs.
• As if all of that wasn’t enough, there’s been no damage or quality control and Jaclyn has been caught lying about gloves used in her lab. She’s also neglected coming out with an offices statement to clear all the air. Shady, hella shady. The lipsticks also keep balling up in places. Solid balls. And they have holes like I mentioned, plus filaments that look suspiciously moldy. Of course, a normal lipstick never does that.
There’s a very important lesson to be learned from here: don’t put anything out into the market till it’s perfect and don’t announce it to the planet when you’re not even ready.
Are you following the drama? Ooh, and did you like my poetry?
