Beauty YouTuber and influencer Olivia Jade Giannulli has been caught in the middle of the Operation Varsity Blues scandal and now it’s costing her. Sephora has announced that it will be parting ways with Olivia and has pulled her bronzer and highlighter palette from their site.
The daughter of actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli was one of many children whose parents illegally bribed their kids into college.
Loughlin and Giannulli were indicted for paying $500,000 in bribes for Olivia and their other daughter Isabella Rose’s admittance to University of Southern California as recruits for the rowing team even though they don’t row.
People have been calling out Sephora to end its partnership with the influencer and the brand listened. Sephora released a statement confirming that they will be ending their relationship with Olivia.
“After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” a spokesperson said.
Hmm, I wonder if Sephora is going to remove Olivia Jade makeup product or do they endorse cheaters? @Sephora

@Sephora Ban products from that elitist lying & cheating @oliviajadee & her family. I don’t want young girls who work hard to get into college to be scammed by her fake life. Boycott this undeserving brat! Stop selling her products! #sephora #boycottsephora #oliviajade

Sephora Collection and Olivia Jade teamed up last year to drop a bronze and highlighter palette named after the influencer. After the scandal, people bombarded the palette with negative reviews bringing the rating to a 1.9 out of 5.
Since the scandal broke, the criticism of Olivia has been loud and brutal. People are attacking the 19-year-old more so than any other teenager involved because of her previously ignorant comments about college
A clip from one of Olivia’s YouTube videos has gone viral. In the clip, she talks about how she only wants to go to college to party and attend football games.
“I don’t know how much of school I’m gonna attend but I’m gonna go in and talk to my deans and everyone, and hope that I can try and balance it all,” Olivia said in her video. “But I do want the experience of like game days, partying — I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know.”
Olivia’s social media has been flooded with people dragging her for being privileged and ignorant. Her Instagram comments are so brutal she turned them off on a few posts. They’re as rough as the Sephora reviews.
