Jeffree Star drags NikkieTutorials over her Shape Tape review

As you’ve likely already heard — or seen — Jeffree Star has weighed in on the Tarte Shape Tape controversy. Some have observed that there are problems with Star claiming to “start the conversation” about diversity and inclusion in beauty, as people of color have been having that conversation for years. Others have said that Star’s newfound wokeness doesn’t seem to apply to the other diversity-deficient foundation lines he promotes on his channel, or to the brands —like Benefit, which does not make deep complexion products — that he partners with.

Those are all important things to note, and as a public figure, Star should be prepared to accept and address that criticism.

But there’s something else going on in his review, which is that he seems to use it as a platform to take shots at former friend Nikkie Tutorials.

After spending six minutes telling Tarte to do better with its shade range (which it should!), Star then starts to talk about Nikkie’s now-deleted Shape Tape review.
