All beauty lovers have most likely heard about controversial brand owners such as Jerrod Blandino of Too Faced Cosmetics, Jeffree Star of Jeffree Star Cosmetics, Kat Von D of (now) KVD Vegan Beauty, Jaclyn Hill of Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics and so on.
There comes a question then: can you separate the brand owner (sometimes problematic) from the brand products?
It’s a tough decision since a lot of the time the brand’s product quality is actually quite good, yet customers choose to not support the brand owner by not purchasing the products.
There are hundreds of videos on the internet to watch and hear different viewpoints. One of the Youtubers who I am subscribed to and admire is Hannah of Smokey Glow. The videos linked below are a great reference and point of view if you’re unsure or are open to an opinion that encapsulates such a complex topic concisely.
I also put up a poll on my Instagram page to see what my followers think about this topic. The screenshot of the results after 22 hours shows:
