Jeffree Star & Shane Dawson Conspiracy Collection Is Being Resold For Twice The Price
ICYMI Jeffree Star collaborated with Shane Dawson for an amazing makeup collaboration, Conspiracy Collection. Fans were so eager to get their hands on the collection that it was almost immediately sold out during its launch last Friday.
But was it really just fans buying the collection for themselves or resellers scamming fans by selling the coveted products for more than double the retail price? As if the items in the collection weren’t expensive enough?

The CONSPIRACY Collection 👁 Launching this Friday at 10AM PST / 1PM EST 👽 #shanexjeffree #jeffreestarcosmetics #conspiracypalette 🖤 Being abducted by aliens while Shane watches holding his pet pig… 🐷 I’ve never had as much fun on set shooting makeup campaigns!!! Thank you @shanedawson for believing in my brand and taking the creative direction to the next fucking level!! 🐖 #ShanexJeffree
Resellers are also opting for buyers to “preorder” on eBay, which meant sellers are charging shoppers for makeup products that aren’t even available yet! Would anyone fall for this?
Get this, the Conspiracy eye-shadow palette costs $52 only but the palettes are being sold for as much as $400, yikes!!!
Jeffree Star calls out makeup resellers
On Monday, Jeffree Star posted an Instagram Story, encouraging people to think twice before purchasing any of the makeup that are being resold online.
“When it comes to JSC, I never speak on these things,” Star said. “I know people resell makeup for a living. I know people out there, as a customer, will pay triple the price of something if you really want it right now.”
“But just remember that Shane put so much blood, sweat, and tears into this project and if you do want to wait for the palette, it will be back, of course, you guys. You know we’re going to do everything in our power. Every few months it’s going to be back.”

Thank you so much for making this the biggest launch @jeffreestarcosmetics has ever had to date! 😭😭😭 I love you @shanedawson, we did it!!

He continued, “I just feel weird putting money in someone else’s pocket that literally did nothing. So if you’re reselling the Shane palette, I get it, not gonna hate, I never speak on these things, but b—-, relax, and just support Shane.”
Good news though, ShanexJeffree Conspiracy collection have been restocked on Tuesday! YAY
