On January 12, Beauty YouTuber Jeffree Star reviewed the "Gucci Fluid De Beauty Natural Finish Fluid Foundation", "Silk Priming Serum" and "Gucci Mascara L'obscur", and only one managed to receive the "Jeffree Star Star Approved" label.
In a YouTube video titled, "$68 GUCCI Foundation… Is It Jeffree Star Approved?!", Jeffree reviews the new Gucci foundation, primer and mascara.
First, Jeffree starts out by judging the Gucci foundation's packaging, and although he calls it "very simple" and "very classy", he states that he isn't "wowed" by it.
Jeffree also labels the foundation bottle as "boring" and questions why Gucci had decided on a "simplistic" design when they time to create something more eye-catching.
I "First impressions with the bottle: It’s all right. I’m not in love with it. It’s a little boring.”
I “But oh my Gucci, you had all the time in the world, sis, and we’re just getting a very simplistic normal foundation bottle.”
I “And the logo it’s just kind of simple. I was expecting a little more, b****, like give me Tom Ford, give me something.”
Next, Jeffree applies the primer which would later fail to meet his expectations.
After applying the foundation and despite admitting that it "blurred" his skin's imperfections as it says in the formula, Jeffree states that he doesn't believe it makes his skin look "amazing".
I “My skin doesn’t look amazing [...] I’m not sure what she’s serving. It’s cute but I’m not wowed. I think that’s fair to say.”
I “But you can definitely see a big difference from the before and after.”
However, Jeffree soon questions if the Gucci primer and foundation complemented each other, as despite having a normal skin type, his skin was starting to feel too dry, particularly around his cheek area.
I "I don't think that the primer Gucci made with this foundation is it."
Not only that, but even before the foundation is set, Jeffree notices that the foundation is "coagulating" in the same area where it was drying out his skin.
I “It’s kind of coagulating in a weird way. I think the Gucci primer is not it girl. [...] I just touched it and it kind of came off.”
Finally, Jeffree reveals that he isn't in love with the Gucci Fluid De Beauty Natural Finish Fluid Foundation" and the "Silk Priming Serum".
I “I hate it, I’m just saying it right now.”
On the other hand, Jeffree praises the "Gucci Mascara L'Obscur". When judging the design and appearance of the product, Jeffree states that it was "really pretty".
I “It’s actually really pretty."
He also compliments the Gucci Mascara L'Obscur's formula and the volume it adds to his eyelashes.
I "It’s giving me volume, it looks nice. I really like the formula."
So, which products are Jeffree Star Approved?
According to Jeffree, the "Silk Serum Primer" or the "Gucci Fluid De Beauty Natural Finish Fluid Foundation" is not "Jeffree Star Approved". In fact, he compares the finished application to an "extra on the Walking Dead".
I “The silk serum primer from Gucci, b***h, it’s not approved. Absolutely not. [...] I could be an extra on the walking dead.”
I “The foundation and the serum, they are not Jeffree Star approved."
However, the Gucci mascara "L'Obscur" is slapped with a "Jeffree Star Approved".
I "But you know what is? Baby, the mascara. The Gucci L'Obscur, mascara is 'Jeffree Star Approved'. It’s been on all day. I love it. It made my lashes feel stunning. [...] All day they look really pretty, I love it, I didn’t even put false lashes on."
Hair By Jay has since publicly apologized to Trisha Paytas for his aggressive livestream where he calls her a "stupid walrus looking a** full of warts b****".
