"I’ve gotten really good at biting my tongue with drama but..."
"I’ve gotten really good at biting my tongue with drama but it’s been sooo hard watching palette reviews and seeing tweets of people just straight up lying for attention 🤐".
In the words of ABBA: "here we go again".

But what is he referring to?
Well, some YouTubers have begun posting video reviews of his palette, with some having decidedly more positive opinions about it than others.
But here's the thing - we've searched around to see which negative opinions Charles is referring to in his tweet, but aside from some videos with not many views and a handful of the usual negative opinions here and there on Twitter, there doesn't actually seem to be a lot of loud negative voices.
So, what exactly is James talking about? Maybe it's just nerves after the stress of releasing his much-hyped makeup palette.
Fans were here for James' shade (mostly)

Not everyone is going to love your palette. I know criticism can be hard to hear but going after anyone who has something negative to say and claiming they are "lying for attention" is a bit much. I have the palette and like it a lot but different people have different tastes...— Smokey Glow (@glow_smokey) November 19, 2018
Do you have James' new palette? What do you make of it?
