Shane Dawson’s Jeffree Star Series Last Episode Includes James Charles Drama?
Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star series on the makeup world was a highly anticipated series for several reasons. Firstly, Shane and Jeffree have great chemistry on camera together so it was a delight to see them together. Secondly, people wanted to see the behind the scene look at the beauty and makeup industry. Thirdly, fans wanted to know the drama that unfolded with Tati Westbrook and James Charles. In particular, the internet wanted to see how Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star reacted to it in real-time.
We got to see the first two things unfold. Not only that, but got to see stunning new makeup palettes by Shane Dawson: Conspiracy Palette and Mini controversy Palette. The collection was definitely a success. Most of it sold within minutes or hours of the launch. So much so that the website on which people were buying the products crashed!
Well, even though fans of Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star absolutely love the new makeup collection, some fans are not completely satisfied with the series. Everyone was talking about how the trailer for ‘The Beautiful World of Jeffree Star’ showcased James Charles and Tati Westbrook drama. Now, 6 episodes in, and the drama in the beauty community has not been addressed. Yes, we got to know of some dark truths about the makeup world when Star’s makeup products ‘Blue Blood Collection’ got stolen before the official launch. But, it wasn’t enough to satisfy the fans.
I’m confused why shane teased the james charles drama but hasn’t put any of it in??

James Charles X Tati Westbrook X Jeffree Star Drama Explained
Let’s do a bit of a recap. A few months ago, Tati Westbrook uploaded a video ‘Bye Sister’ where she exposed James Charles of his problematic traits where he is coming on to straight men who aren’t comfortable with his advances.
“Oh my god, you tried to trick a straight man into thinking he’s gay, yet again. And, somehow, you’re the victim. You know, it’s really disgusting to manipulate someone’s sexuality, especially when they are still emerging into adulthood.”
She also explained how James took a brand deal with Tati’s competitor brand Sugar Bear Hair when he wanted to get Coachella tickets.
But during this time, Jeffree Star took Tati’s side openly and bashed Charles for his behavior and deemed him ‘a danger to society’. While Shane Dawson did not bash James, he did however post a tweet that was supporting Tati Westbrook’s career. Some fans took that as taking Tati’s side.

I was trying to think of a funny caption but nothing seems right because of what this person means to me. Tati is someone who I’ve known about for years but who I just started really watching in the last few months because of my research on the beauty world. Since watching her I’ve had this insane connection to her and her videos have helped me so much, not just with makeup but with my anxiety and with my stress. I’ve had a lot of hard things happen in the last few months and being able to turn on one of her videos at night and hear her calming voice has been really healing for me. Tati, thank you for everything you do and thank you for being just as beautiful on the inside as you are on the out. Meeting you was something I will never forget. Love you :,) ❤️
Charles did end up responding and clearing up the allegations entirely. This led to Tati Westbrook deleting her original video ‘Bye Sister’ and posting another one on how she wanted to move forward. It seems like she wanted the matter to settle down.
Meanwhile, Jeffree Star uploaded a video where he addressed his hateful comments against James Charles. He stated that he does not want to meddle into any drama anymore. Star said that he regretted being a bad friend to Charles and wished he could have handled the situation differently. Star also stated that he won’t talk about the drama publicly anymore. This was before the Shane Dawson Jeffree Star Series was launched.
Shane Dawson’s Makeup Collection Deal with Morphe Pushed Up James Charles’ Makeup Palette Launch
Even though the Tati Westbrook and James Charles drama was not added in the series, we did find out one thing. James Charles had a deal with Morphe to launch his makeup palette on the date when Shane Dawson released his makeup collection. Via Jeffree Star’s influence, Morphe ended up pushing up the date of James Charles makeup palette release so that Shane Dawson’s collection could hit right in time for Halloween.
Shane Addresses Why He Didn’t Put The Drama Stuff in the Video
Later, Dawson got on Instagram live and explained why the fans didn’t see the drama in the series yet.
Originally, he wanted the focal point to contain the drama in the beauty community. But Shane thought he needed to add the details of the palette itself before it launches because that was the goal of the series too.
Though, the fans loved seeing the business side of things so much that Shane just made that the focus point. He also ended up adding some heartwarming moments such as Shane’s proposal to his partner Ryland Adams.
The James Charles drama in particular erupted in the middle of the series, then things took a dramatic turn:
“The Dramageddon stuff started taking a turn. It got to a point where it was evident to me that this was so much bigger than drama…So we filmed it all.
He stated that he wanted to have a happy ending but it did not seem like it was going to be like that. It was a true ‘Mean Girl’ situation as per Dawson.
The Series Became a Source of Healing for the Beauty Community
Shane stated that the series was helping unite the beauty community in a way. The NikkiTutorial story that Jeffree shared in the series where Too Faced gave her a really bad business deal was something that he’s referring to. Everyone has been at the end of unfair business deals and that alone reminded the beauty gurus why they started the business in the first place: to create makeup. Shane simply wanted to keep focusing the good message and not fuel more drama.
Shane Got Confused
So now, the YouTuber is stuck with a confusing decision:
There’s no winning right? If I don’t post any of the drama stuff people are going to be like, ‘You click baited or you lied.’ If I do post the drama stuff [they’ll say], ‘Why are you bringing up old stuff? You’re an asshole.
Dawson also thinks that everyone has grown immensely from the drama situation that happened. Though, the YouTuber was still confused on what to do but a recent video by Jeffree Star suggests that they’ll finally address the James Charles Tati Westbrook feud.
Jeffree Star Says They’ll Address The Whole Thing in the Upcoming Episode
In the video titled, “What Shane Dawson DELETED From The Series.. Conspiracy Palette Tutorial”, Star shared that the incident will be finally addressed.
He starts off with saying that he didn’t think the drama was relevant anymore either
We are really on the fence so I think it’s time to really just address it all in the series and really just dive in and talk about it because if we don’t people are gonna say ‘oh y’all tried to reel us in’ – so I really think that you know let Shane follow his gut. We have nothing to hide obviously. Shane has been living in the beauty community for a year now. And he has seen a lot honey and I think it would be cool to get his perspective on a bunch of things.
Later Shane Dawson posted a story on his Instagram, claiming that the upcoming episode of his Jeffree Star series is going to come this week:
Well, Shane is saying he’ll give his fans everything he promised and that may probably include James Charles and Tati Westbrook drama.
I hope it’s a positive and happy ending, since that’s one of the great parts about Shane Dawson’s new content.
