James Charles Came For “The Hills” Lauren Conrad Over A Faulty PR Package

August 21, 2020 / Posted by:

Beauty YouTuber James Charles picked another fight with a celebrity entering the makeup-selling universe. Previously, he shit on Sans Fards Priestess, Alicia Keys, who is releasing a beauty brand. James took issue with the fact that Alicia doesn’t really wear make-up but was putting out a beauty line. He apologized after learning that Alicia is selling skincare and not makeup. But now he’s turned his ire to Lauren Conrad, the Queen of the Basics who was in The Hills and Laguna Beach. LC is releasing a beauty brand and sent some of her stuff to James Charles. But the PR package James received was terrible! Sacrebleu! How dare she! Don’t worry, they talked and worked it all out and everything is good now. I mean, we’ll for sure get a forty-minute video with a non-story about the whole drama but that was unavoidable.

James ripped into Lauren online after getting the PR package for her upcoming collection, Lauren Conrad Beauty. It’s a “clean” beauty collection which so far has a liquid highlighter, liquid eyeliner, lip gloss, and lip and cheek tint.

So some tinted-chapstick and eyeliner? Cool. James hated what he received and ripped Lauren without saying the name of the brand, but the packaging gave it away:

“So I’ve already been having a really weird day. Maybe one day I’ll tell you guys about it, but honestly probably not because I probably can’t. But I’ve just been sitting here thinking, “Wow, can this actually get any weirder, or any worse?” and it just did. I just opened a PR package from a new makeup brand from somebody who has no business having a makeup brand and I just wanted to show you guys some of these products, okay? This is the liquid highlighter that I just opened up, notice anything weird about it? There’s no highlighter in there, nor is there a cap and it’s not even sealed. Like I actually just received this piece of plastic in a PR box… This is the eyeliner that I got, notice the tip is white? That’s because there is no ink in the actual eyeliner pen. Like stop making makeup brands.”

Oh my god, your life was turned upside-down because you got free shit that sucked? Wow, can someone forget about those migrant children still separated at the border: James Charles got a bad PR package.

Lauren got on social media to explain what happened after James’ ranting made the rounds. Apparently, she just filled a test PR box with prototypes and sent it out by mistake.

“For those asking about the empty components sent to James… let me tell you a fun story… The woman who put together the gifts (it was me) decided to fill a makeup bag full of empty samples to make sure everything would fit inside. When beauty products arrived and it was time to fill all the makeup bags she (again, me) accidentally included the bag full of empties with the others and it was sent out. She will be let go immediately.”

But don’t worry, James calmed down, they spoke and now they’re good:

“Wanted to write an apology to @LaurenConrad for my stories earlier. I’ve been on the verge of tears all day long from a ton of things going wrong and opening her PR package was the icing on the cake of weird things happening today… My stories talking about the products were supposed to be funny but they just came across as nasty because I was so upset, not with her, but with other things that happened today… Lauren and I spoke privately about the misunderstanding and are both good.”

Glad these two could make up, but Lauren actually should be called out for this shit. I’ve seen The Hills and I know Lauren doesn’t have a clue about good eyeliner:

How can you trust her to sell you that same product?! No ma’am!
