Meanwhile, some weren’t afraid to throw shade at Jaclyn Hill after she faced backlash for the quality of her makeup line, with another fan adding: ‘Someone should tell jacklyn hill that this is how you apologise for s***.’

Jeffree and Shane, who have both faced controversies in the past, also dropped the final episode of their series The Beautiful World Of Jeffree Star.

After a break from the project, which saw Shane insisting he wanted to get the last episode exactly right, the hour and 20 minute video has been released.

Despite initial backlash, with some fans branding the series ‘nothing more than a huge promotion for your palette,’ and claiming that Shane shortenened it after promising nine episodes, the reaction has been largely positive.
