Sephora Drops Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli As Cosmetics Partner Amid #VarsityBlues Crisis

Sephora is saving face and ending its partnership with Olivia Jade Giannulli.


The cosmetics company announced the move Thursday after Giannulli’s famous parents — actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli — were arrested this week in the largest college admissions bribery scandal in U.S. history.


“After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” Sephora said in a statement.


The 19-year-old social media influencer known simply as Olivia Jade is a beauty vlogger with 1.9 million YouTube subscribers and 1.4 million Instagram followers.

She released a signature palette of Sephora bronzers and highlighters in December that sold for $28 but was no longer available on the Sephora website Thursday.


According to prosecutors, Olivia Jade and her older sister were admitted to USC after their parents paid a total of $500,000 in bribes to have them designated as special recruits for the school’s crew team, even though they had no competitive rowing credentials.


Their applications purportedly included staged photos of each daughter posing on a rowing machine.
