Jenelle Evans from Teen Mom has found herself in deep water with her consumers after claims of the makeup containing mold. Unfortunately, her fans don’t feel that the products are up to the industry standard or even safe.
After leaving Teen Mom, Evans has had to look for other ways to earn an income including selling merchandise and promotional posts on social media. Although the reality star’s makeup line is scarce, you can get an eyebrow kit that includes a brow wand, highlighter, brow powder, brow wax, and brow tools for $40.
A popular makeup reviewer, Rachel Pellegriti, reviewed the eyebrow kit and claimed the pallet had dirt and mold on it. She also alleged her friends received theirs in the same poor condition.
Pallegriti later posted screenshots of a heated discussion between her and Evans.
“Looks like @j_evans1219 couldn’t handle the truth about @jecosmeticsinc review,” Pallegriti wrote on Instagram. “I continue to ask her to explain how this so-called “fuzz” got in the wax. I called her out on deflecting and dodging my questions and what happens?!?!……she blocks me. You want to run a business, don’t sell s*itty products unregulated, unsterile environment.”
Pallegriti then sent the pallet to a lab to be tested.
“Ladies and gentlemen the lab has discovered it’s fungus in the makeup,” Pallegriti captioned a picture of the lab results on Instagram. “Absolutely disgusting. How can anyone sell a contaminated product and not care?! JE cosmetics needs to be shut down immediately!!!!!”
Evan’s company released a statement on Instagram regarding the matter.
“Despite all the rumors some have been spreading about our kits, our makeup is clean and sanitized,” the company wrote in a statement on Instagram. “Before shipping every product is inspected. All of our previous customers are happy and satisfied with their product!”
Pallegriti has since gone live on Instagram to show her followers the mold in question.
Evans has not responded at this time.
