On The Beautiful World of Jeffree Star, he finally explained the way that NikkieTutorials was paid out for her palette. It’s important to note that Jeffree also has issues with Too Faced as a brand because, he claims, owner Jerrod Blandino has shaded brands like Tarte on Instagram before.
“NikkieTutorials did a collab with Too Faced, I hate that we’re mentioning them again,” Jeffree said on the show. “But she accepted a deal where they gave her a flat fee of $50,000 and that was it.”
“She made no money from the palettes, and the brand went on to sell more than $10 million of the product, and probably more than that,” he continued. “And she got just a little flat fee and some dirt, no residuals, nothing. And she didn’t know.”
