FYI, the money is fake.
Jaclyn Hill just announced the launch of her first product since the whole "hairy" lipstick drama – a holiday highlighter and makeup brush collection. Of course, that calls for a celebration, so Jaclyn threw a dinner party to celebrate the launch of her new Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics highlighters.

The YouTuber had the dinner at her home in Los Angeles and the guest list included James Charles and the Kardashian's makeup artist Hrush Achemyan. In an Instagram Story from Hrush's account, Jaclyn is seen sitting down for dinner with Hrush and the other guests on an elaborately decorated table.
It must be pretty hot in there because both Jaclyn and Hrush decided to mop up their brows. But, upon closer inspection, it wasn't a regular old tissue they were using or even a napkin, it was a crisp $100 bill. Jaclyn blots her head with it, while Hrush wipes her mouth after taking a sip of water.
As soon as Jaclyn's fans saw the video, they immediately said they were "disgusted" by her immense show of wealth. Not only that, apparently some of Jaclyn's customers still haven't been refunded for receiving their "hairy" lipsticks earlier this year, despite Jaclyn promising full refunds for everyone.
Needless to say, they were not impressed by the video.
Is it boujee to blot your face with 100$ bills when you still owe people money? I hope she got bacteria, feces, and cocaine all in her pores for being so gross, greedy & tone deaf. #jaclynhill #stayboujee pic.twitter.com/RduDeO5k9s— Haclyn Jill’s First Face (@FaceJaclyns) November 15, 2019

all that money couldn’t buy you class, and yes i’m aware it’s fake money but this stunt isn’t cute pic.twitter.com/OlOGCg7U1p
That jacket thing ain’t it. I can say that because #jaclynhill smears 100$ bills on her face while STILL owing people money, it’s another middle finger to go with her classy costume. pic.twitter.com/lyGDRkChLi— Haclyn Jill’s First Face (@FaceJaclyns) November 15, 2019

Again-if #jaclynhill wasn’t offensive to you before? Idk & idc if they’re fake-people a mile from her mansion are homeless, starving, suffering-she OWES customers $, but it’s funny to wipe your face with 100$ bills. Classless, disgusting, selfish egomaniac.— Haclyn Jill’s First Face (@FaceJaclyns) November 15, 2019
I’m done. pic.twitter.com/7Oa70WxjFY
Others suggested that she is "broke" and should not be using $100 dollar bills, especially when the tags were hanging out of her clothing in her latest video.
Jaclyn Hill is LITERALLY just broke and trying to get money from her fans. 😂 you could see the tags from the outfit that she’s planning on returning 👀 pic.twitter.com/Fswo3P5i3N— Petty Sesh🍵◢ ◤ (@TeaSeshYT) November 16, 2019
Jaclyn, who according to Elle Australia is worth $1.5million, has now revealed that the money is fake on Twitter, after a fan asked her to confirm. She said: "100% fake. They literally say 'motion picture only' on them." Like, no matter how rich you are would you really want all that bacteria on your face!?
The makeup guru also responded to criticism about her tags hanging out, and said: "Oh dear God! No, I'm not returning my clothes after wearing them! I just forgot to cut it off before filming. It's hanging in my closet with no tag currently. Nothing to report here."
I’ve literally been known for not taking my tags off my whole life! A bitch is in a hurry!🤣— Jaclyn Hill (@Jaclynhill) November 16, 2019
She added: "I’ve literally been known for not taking my tags off my whole life! A bitch is in a hurry!"
