Jeffree Star’s New Makeup Line was Stolen and Leaked, FBI Searches For 2.5 Million in Product

YouTube and beauty sensation Jeffree Star is working with the FBI to bring back 2.5 million dollars worth of makeup that was stolen from his company’s facility weeks ago. An entire shade from Star’s new concealer line, Magic Star™, was stolen from a stock and shipping facility warehouse when burglars entered through the facility’s roof on March 15. The stolen products were leaked online in a private Facebook group days ago. Star’s newest line wasn’t supposed to be announced this early. In fact, the company hadn’t yet revealed to the public that the line was coming to fruition. Read more in Lindsay Wigo’s report for CMN.

American League Surprise Teams

Granted, there have only been a handful of games and there are 155+ plus to go, but still, there are first and last place teams that seem irreconcilable.
