What’s Up in Makeup NEWS! Sephora Sued! Makeup From Ebay is NASTY! Hourglass Goes Vegan!


Hourglass plans to go vegan,
The real dangers of shopping for makeup on Ebay,
And can you really catch an STD from a tester? I’m Jen from Jen Luvs Reviews and What’s Up
in Makeup Starts Now Welcome to What’s Up in Makeup for November
5, 2017. Let’s get started with the Top Industry News
Hourglass Cosmetics announced that it is going fully vegan, and that it will revamp its ingredients
list by 2020. The brand already sells predominantly vegan
products that are not tested on animals, but plans are to eliminate animal-derived ingredients,
including beeswax, lanolin and carmine. They are asking experts in bio-tech to find
new ingredients that don’t sacrifice quality. The price range of $18 to $350 will not change
as the brand evolves. Hourglass will sell a limited-edition vegan
leather makeup bag online, contributing all of the profits to animal rights. A recent report by Market Research Future
expects “cruelty-free” products to grow about 6.1 percent by 2023. Google’s latest report on skin-care trends
found that searches for vegan products have grown 83 percent year over year since 2010. Shiseido has announced it will close nearly
half of the 209 bareMinerals stores in the U.S., according to WWD. Launched in 1995, the bareMinerals parent
company Bare Escentuals was acquired by Shiseido in 2010. Famous for its mineral foundation, the brand
has struggled in recent years in an increasingly more competitive market, though the company
claims that “a full 30 percent of American women use the brand.” Shiseido affirms that it will continue to
invest in the brand. In contrast, the Estee Lauder Companies issued
a forecast of holiday-quarter sales well ahead of market expectations, apparently thanks
to those acquisitions of brands aimed at attracting millennials such as Too Faced and BECCA. The company also credits having signed on
influencers and celebrities to promote its products. The strong forecast followed better-than-expected
sales and profit in the first quarter, as sales in the Asia Pacific region and Europe
soared. “We benefitted from a continued acceleration
in China, Hong Kong, travel retail and global online,” Chief Executive Fabrizio Freda said. In the United States, though brick-and-mortar
sales have been falling, the company’s greater use of cosmetic retailers Ulta and Sephora
have helped it offset any hit to profits. Disney fans, we know you’ve been waiting for
this one: the Besamé Cosmetics Snow White 1937 Collection launches this Month! You know Besamé for throwback style and classic
formulas. Snow White’s creamy skin and dark rouged
lips are a hallmark of vintage makeup looks. The colors in the collection are based on
the original Disney cel and background colors specifically created for the film, all universally
flattering for a polished look. Here are the highlights:
The 1937 Storybook Palette – $68 – with 20 shadows
With a Smile and a Song Cream Rouge – $20 – or With a Smile and a Song Eyeshadow Palette
– $43 – in two colorways Classic Color Lipsticks – $24 – in four shades
Seven Dwarfs Mini Lipstick Set – $35 Snow White Travel Bag – $35 – or Book-Motif
Makeup Bag – $15 The Fairest Vanity Mirror – $40 – and more
The collection will arrive at Besamé’s flagship store in Burbank, California and
will also be available online at Besamé, Modcloth, and Sephora, as well as the Disney
Family Museum in San Francisco. But if you prefer your princesses more on
the modern side, Mally Beauty’s new “Frozen” makeup collection just launched on QVC. This holiday line features shadows, liners,
mascaras, lip glosses, and blushes in two gorgeously-packaged kits; one for Elsa, and
one for Anna. $49.98 each. There’s plenty of makeup that claims to give
you a “glow to the heavens”…but what about “glow-in-the-dark?” Some brands are taking that idea to a level
that requires you to turn off the lights. But safety questions are popping up about
these highlighters. The FDA, which only tests the color additives
used, has pinpointed luminescent zinc sulfide as the only FDA-approved compound used to
create the glow-in-the-dark effect. While it can be used on skin, it should not
be used every day, and nowhere near the eyes. Experts recommend you perform a patch test,
and not hesitate to remove the product if there is any redness, burning, or stinging. And it’s not only about putting it on…it’s
how you take it off. Check the labels for any removal instructions,
be extra careful around your eyes, then use both an oil-based cleanser followed by a foaming
cleanser to completely remove the chemicals. That’s a lot just for a few hours glowing
in the dark… Reporters at Florida’s NBC2 News recently
wanted the answer to the question…are counterfeit cosmetics really harmful to humans? And you will not like what they found. The products in question came from sellers
on Ebay, and claimed to be discounted versions of designer products. The products arrived in small black bags labeled
“clothing.”…suspicious. The news team then brought them to Princeton
Consumer Research in St. Petersburg for analysis, where differences in color, application, and
texture were noted. They were then sent to that company’s labs
in the UK, where the real trouble started. All of the counterfeit products contained
“significant quantities” of lead and aluminum traces along with rat droppings. Yes, they contained rat droppings. One fake also had traces of mercury. Barrie Drewitt, PCR Technical Director, noted,
“The biggest problem is banned substances can penetrate through the skin and go into
the bloodstream. The last thing we want is for someone to become
ill because of a fake product.” For example, Lead poisoning can cause memory
loss, muscle pains and headaches. Aluminum can accumulate in the brain and tissues,
causing memory loss and dementia over a period of time. Exposure to mercury In eye makeup, can damage
your vision permanently, as well as damage to the heart, kidneys, lungs and brain. Bacteria-infested fake makeup can lead to
serious skin rashes, and as for rat droppings…among other things, they’re just gross. So, yeah, when you see a Modern Renaissance
palette for $5 on Ebay, you might want to skip it. This week, we heard TMZ report that a woman
in California is suing Sephora, after claiming a tester from the store gave her herpes, in
“exact alignment” with a 2015 visit. This was later diagnosed by a doctor as “oral
herpes.” The unnamed customer bases her claim on never
having had a cold sore or herpes prior to the visit. She is suing the chain for strict liability,
negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional
distress, and believes the company should have warned customers about the risk of contracting
an infection. According to the CDC, “oral herpes” is most
usually caused by HSV-1 and may result in fever blisters or cold sores in or around
the mouth. But…can you catch it from a tester? To quote an article in Popular Science…”Calm
down.” Herpes is primarily spread via skin-to-skin
contact, or saliva. If someone with HSV is experiencing symptoms
like cold sores, they go through “viral shedding,” which is just what it sounds
like. According to the article, “Herpes can’t survive
long outside of the body, but it’s technically possible that it could hold on just long enough
to infect a new host if two people used the same lipstick in very quick succession, especially
if the second user had open wounds on their lips.” Think, chapped lips. It’s a horrifying prospect. But, how horrified should you be? Again, the article cites a 2015 study by the
World Health Organization which found that 2 out of 3 people under the age of 50 have
HSV-1, a.k.a. Oral Herpes. Plus, some 90 percent of people who are diagnosed
with herpes by way of a blood test have never had symptoms and had no idea they had it. Which brings us back to product hygiene. Many stores have their policies and spritzers,
but even if they mounted huge flashing signs or programmed robots to remind customers about
best practices…you must remember this…Ultimately, the responsibility is on you. Do not apply the contents of any testers directly
to any area of your face. Even if it is brand new, completely pristine
and free of bacteria and viruses…you could contaminate it with your own. So be a good human and think of the next person. We don’t know what will happen with this lawsuit,
and will keep you posted of what changes it may bring. Until then…protect yourself. But there are good things going on at Sephora
as well. Their holiday “Reach Out and Gift” campaign,
which encourages people to connect with others through beauty gifts, includes a diverse group
of their own employees. Over 1,000 cast members applied to be a part
of the campaign with a video talking about what beauty means to them, and 10 were selected
from across the US and Canada for the campaign based upon celebrating different perspectives
and a diverse sense of beauty. Chosen were Chaimae Boulayad, a hijab-wearing
Moroccan employee…Joanna Samano, who suffers from alopecia…and Terrel Britten, an esthetician
who works at Sephora in Beverly Hills. Diversity in beauty…it’s beautiful to see.

100 thoughts on “What’s Up in Makeup NEWS! Sephora Sued! Makeup From Ebay is NASTY! Hourglass Goes Vegan!

  1. i am so mad that this herpes thing even got to court, i use to work at Sephora and i would see the girls they would just take the wand out, run it cross their lips and go, i still shop there and see the same thing. if you choose to use a tester and not remotely use a testing wand or have the lipstick sanitized it is most definitely your fault. I'm sure she got herpes fro some guy/woman doing god knows what with and is looking for a pay out. soo the study says you basically have to be passed the lipstick and put it on right after they do, who does that?

  2. I love that Hourglass is going full on vegan! I only hope that they won't be bought by a parent company that does animal testing. Although I don't only use vegan or cruelty makeup, I do think this is a nice trend that we are seeing 🙂

  3. You are incredible!!! You and your team should have billions of subscribers. Love love love this channel. #teamjenluvsreviews

  4. Luv u girly hope your well… My dad just passed and I'm extremely sad but I still find a lil joy in your videos… I'll take my smiles wherever I can find them these days🙂

  5. I would love to see My Pretty Zombie or Notoriously Morbid mentioned in the indie part! I love coming home from work on Sunday, having an adult beverage and watching!

  6. This was refreshing and mesmerizing! Im assuming you write the copy and are reading it but it was nearly impossible to see. What a huge amount of work this must have been. Wow! Well done! 🌟🌟🌟

  7. Just to touch on the mention of aluminum in fake cosmetics, it accumulates in the brain and should be avoided, well did you know vaccines contain aluminum? So we shouldn't use makeup with it, but we inject it into our babies.

  8. THANK YOU for correctly pronouncing “Monsieur Big” by Lancôme. Yes, it is French!!! And the # of people saying “mon-sure” in their videos is killing me. 😘

  9. lol who would seriously put those testers on their lips or face in general?? I might swatch it on the back of my hand but that's as far as it goes. People crazy

  10. Who puts tester lipstick on their mouth? I only test on my hand and use their hand sanitizer when I am done testing.

  11. I kinda think it would be a good idea to have to ask a sales associate to try on a tester. Since they know what needs to be done before and after each use, it would remove consumer screw ups from the equation.

  12. Love love love your delivery! It’s better than most broadcast news anchors. Anywho, I️ saw my name at the bottom as a WUIM Hunter and was thrilled to pieces! Thanks so much for your time and dedication WUIM team!

  13. I always wondered about buying make-up items on ebay and Amazon. I had one bad experience buying on Amazon from a seller. He sent me a perfume with a broken sprayer. It was labeled a NEW item but, later found out that he knew it was broken. I wasn't able to use the product at all. Lucy Amazon customer service was very good and I got my money back. I only purchased OPI nail polish on ebay. I would love to have a group talk with your live broad cast to see what other peoples views are. I am so wired about sharing lipstick extra and see my high school students do it all the time. Again I would love to know more about what are the procedures of make-up artists. I see people getting their make-up done but, it is always in the back of my mind. I heard a story about a woman getting a staph infection from sharing a make-up brush with a friend. On another topic, I know your show is more visual and ideal for youTube but, I would love to listen to you a podcasts too.

  14. nobody on their right mind would try a lipstick straight out of the tube in sephora or a make up counter she is reaching.

  15. I don't think stores with testers explain them well to be fair. People who haven't shopped these types of makeup stores before may go in a bit naive. Of course it could be a money scheme, but if it was just ignorance that sucks. They should cut the doe foot off or place cards down that state only hand/arm swatches or at your own risk etc.

  16. @16:24 when your we’re saying the names of the LC Palettes all I could think was “Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers 🌶 “

  17. Love you Jen! your videos are great! I saw your teaching video and it touched my heart…your one of my best youtubers and I see your numbers rising, may God bring them high day by day and you grow…always look forward to your live chats!!!

  18. Not sure if someone has already mentioned it, but the Sephora sale is extended by 2 days. The sale starting Friday the 10th runs through Wednesday the 15th!

  19. This women is just dumb. Anyone with half a brain knows not to use those testers on your face. Always swatch on your hands.

  20. Omg i love your personality! i came from stephanie nicoles channel and i am so glas she reccomended you! Definetly subscribed to your channe! <3

  21. They just moved the bareminerals store near me… that would be kind of a waste if they were closing anytime soon!

  22. Everyone gossiping about her catching an STD is a complete idiot. Unless two people inserted a product into their vagina or bloodstream, it is impossible to contract an STD from makeup. Oral herpes in my experience (caught it from my horrifyingly filthy brother age 11) is at most inconvenient so long as you aren't rubbing the sore and transferring the virus into other mucous membranes. She has no case, applying used products is a risk that is as obvious as walking straight into a street: you needn't be told that there is a chance of getting hit.

  23. blaming sephora for her own stupidity is like blaming a condom company for you getting knocked up because you put your nail through it!
    why the hell would she put a tester lipstick near her mouth???? if you found a lipstick on the street would you instantly apply it to your lips? hell no! just think how much foot traffic sephora gets and how many people tested that lipstick in a day. would you chew someones spat out gum??? nope.
    sorry but this woman should be handed a personal hygiene leaflet and sent on her way.

  24. I am in LOVE with this type of video! I came over from Nicole's channel and I am so impressed. Thank you for bringing beauty news in such an easy way. I can't wait to see more!

  25. OMG!! That Sephora BS reminds me of something I did in Ulta recently. I was buying some Tarte Shape Tape and although I’m really good at ONLY putting testers on my hand I was wondering “but I wonder how it’ll look under my eyes since it’s so different” so guess what?!? Without even thinking I opened the tester and dabbed it RIGHT UNDER MY EYE! I immediately grunted and said to my daughter “crap…I hope I didn’t just give myself pinkeye”!!! Everything turned out fine but if I had contracted something it would’ve been 100% MY OWN FAULT!! People at some point need to use common sense and start taking responsibility for their actions!! I would NEVER sue a company over my stupidity 🤦🏻‍♀️

  26. To the woman choosing to sue Sephora, good luck with that.  Sounds like a stretch and you'll most likely hear them say #PROVEIT

  27. Hi Jen. Saw you for the first time on Stephanie channel. Enjoyed your collaboration with Stephanie video.
    I decided to go check your other videos. Oh boy! So glad I did.
    Your pretty amazing, very talented and HONEST! Fell in luv with you. I'm so glad Stephanie got to share you with us in her video.
    Definitely will continue to watch your channel. Thank you for your hard work in your videos and please don't change.
    Btw way I totally freaked out that you were a mom. You look so young like a teenager out of high school!

  28. This is honestly the kind of video I have been looking for- it's so helpful to know what's going on in the makeup world! Thank you for covering smaller brands like Besame, too!

  29. Lmao STD. While cold sores are a variety of herpes, it NOT an STD. They are completely different strains. If you have a cold sore you can not sexually transmit it. Yes it's contagious by kissing, but that is not your genital or genital area hence why the actual STD is called GENITAL herpes. I think she should be held liable. You are using a tester that is used by hundreds of people. Of course that's why you don't directly apply them from the tester. I would also be weary of even applying it with the disposable applicators since people are gross and put their germs all over everything. That's why you swatch it on your hand. Calling a cold sore an STD is like saying strep throat is the same as the strep that causes the flesh eating disease. Both are strep but completely different strains and attack the body completely different. I'm sure that's why my local sephora removes all the applicators so you can't go straight in from the product.

  30. re the lady trying to sue sephora: I strongly appreciate and want to say thank you for all the research you did on HSV, and for bringing awareness and accurate information to so many people. May not have worded that the best but I'm hoping you get my meaning 🙂

  31. Wow! you rocked this weekly news. I have subscribed and cannot wait to see more. Loved the collaboration with Stephanie Nicole.

  32. Not surprised that BM is closing half their stores. When these companies sell out to the really big companies, they lose their customer base and their integrity of the brand that made it so from the very beginning. Does anyone remember how about 15-20 years ago BM dominated the complexion market with their swirl, tap, and buff technique and how liquid foundation was the enemy? Well, I do. Since Shiseido took over, they have launched about 3 liquid foundations. What? Totally against what they stood for 20 years ago. So, no surprise that they are losing their long-time customer base.

  33. may I ask what are the sources for the information on how aluminium and mercury affect our health? I haven't found any links in the description box. 🙁

  34. I never use makeup testers whenever I am in a store. I think it's gross and I absolutely cringe everytime I see someone pick up an eyeshadow palette or mascara tester and start applying it straight to their eyes. Do they have any idea how many people have done that same thing before they did? How many unwashed fingers went into swatching that eyeshadow palette they're now lining their eyes with? It's so unsanitary and if it's against the law to serve food testers that someone else took a bite out of then why wouldn't the same go for cosmetics? Don't apply testers to your face people! It's not worth the risk…

  35. Oh wow! I’m glad I visited your channel! It’s awesome!!! I’m a subscriber now. I watched your colab with Stephanie Nicol

  36. Thank you for this video. I had gotten a “100% authentic” lorac pro 3 from eBay, immediately knew it was fake when it arrived. The quality was junk and the buyer was difficult and I ended up stuck with it. So I gave it to my so the other day. Saw this and threw it away.

  37. Note that the sugarpill new shadows are the same as their Valentine’s Day palette! The pink and red are duocrome and gorgeous

  38. OK, I'm OFFICIALLY freaking out right now. I have three (I think) fake Morphe palettes that I've used a handful of times and now I'm afraid of lead and mercury. OMG. Forget the rat poop, that won't damage your nervous system like mercury and lead do. I will throw them out immediately and replace them with the real thing (maybe).

  39. I think this is great! You are such a great reporter/news caster! I know you said you used tobe an elementary school teacher which is so cool! You're awesome at reporting the news!!
    Btw…I came over after Stephanie recommended your channel! I'm loving your videos!

  40. Being nasty and not regulated for health and safety isn't the only reason to not buy fake things–they are usually backed by child labor and human and drug trafficking.

  41. Great job, Jen! Thanks for all the detailed info on makeup sales, where too find them, and what's new! I really appreciate it! God bless you!

  42. I never try testers I try it on my hand and then remove it with alcohol. I mean how stupid are you. I can search something and know if I will like it on my self. I also touch the texture with my fingers so I know if I like it. Keep the stuff clean at Sephora. Just use their applicators if you actually need to try on the product

  43. It's like watching a News cast buts it's make-up I love it! So glad I subscribed from SFSteph! I bought the Revlon highlighter it's crap it's hella powdery no shimmer 😱😱😱

  44. Why would estee try to market at millenials with unaffordable prices though, it really doesn’t make sense

  45. Damn that Disney stuff looked cheap and badly designed. Colors have nothing to do with Disney. Eek. So 70s

  46. Like why arent all testers in stores little packages on foil that you can swipe? Or at least forbid people from using them on anything but their hands! But little bits on foil that you can swipe and chuck still seems like a better idea to me. I've seen women dig their fingers in the eye shadow and then apply it on their eyes at sephora!!!! And imagine that tester has been sitting there for 3 months with god knows how many people doing the exact same thing. Beyond disgusting
