Before alleged nepotistic scammer Olivia Jade became embroiled in the recent college admissions scandal, she was (and still is) a popular influencer. Not only does she have over one million followers on Instagram and almost two million on YouTube, she also has a bunch of sponsorships with companies like Amazon, Tresemmé, and Sephora Collection under her belt. But, since the news broke, people have been calling on brands to stop working with her. Sephora Collection, it seems, have heard the complaints loud and clear.

In a statement to NBC News, a Sephora representative revealed that, "After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately." Jade had a makeup collection with the beauty retailer, and had released a Bronze and Illuminate palette of bronzers and highlighters only a couple of months ago. As of publication, the Bronze and Illuminate palette is no longer listed on Sephora's website.

Maybe this is one of the few cases in which going to college actually hurts your career.

While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
