YouTubers Shane Dawson, Jeffree Star Reveal Product Packaging Crisis Ahead of 'Conspiracy' Product Launch

With just four days to go before the product launch, YouTube beauty vloggers Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star appeared hit a snag in the production of their forthcoming makeup line, Conspiracy.

Dawson has been offering his viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the process of creating their highly anticipated eye shadow palette through a nine-part series, The Beautiful World of Jeffree Star. Each episode details another step in the pair's creative process, building anticipation among their YouTube fans ahead of the collection launch on Friday, November 1.

The latest episode of the docu-series, titled "The Failure of Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson," show the online beauty experts hit a moment of panic over the first round of designs for the "Conspiracy" palette, the crown jewel in their collection.

"After we left Jeffree's office, like the Conspiracy palette wasn't there. It just wasn't what we—I don't know. I just didn't have a good feeling about it," Dawson said on camera the day after a meeting which unveiled the product design. "Then it kind of got really frantic. It was definitely like, 'Uh oh.'"

However, Star's objections to the packaging did not become known until later in the episode. "I am not liking the front of the palette. It's just not there," he said. "I'm not gagging, I'm not like, 'Wow.'"

When pulled aside, Star told Dawson: "I was waiting for your response and then I was going to tell you I hated it."

In addition to the 18-shade eyeshadow palette, the Conspiracy product line will consist of the nine-shade Mini-Controversy eyeshadow palette, six shades of liquid lipsticks and one clear lip gloss. Additional merchandise—such as handheld "pig" mirrors and a various types of makeup bags—will also be available for purchase.

The items will be up for sale at Morphe stores and on Star's website beginning at 10 a.m. PST, according to Showbiz CheatSheet.

Dawson and Star first teamed up in 2018 for The Secret World of Jeffree Star, a docu-series following the life of the beauty mogul. In December, the business duo hinted at their collaboration on Twitter.

As for "The Failure of Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson"—which was ranked No. 2 in trending videos on YouTube as of Tuesday evening, with over 9 million views—the issue appeared to resolve itself.

"Literally, next time spit in my face," Dawson responded, wanting Star to speak up to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. "Just say, 'You're stupid.'"
