Remember Claire's Accessories, the place where the world and its mother went to get their ears pierced for the first time?

From glitter hair spray to patterned hairbands and colourful scrunchies, Claire's was the place to BE when you were roughly 13-years-old.

Unfortunately, the high street brand are in hot water over asbestos concerns in some of its products, specifically the 'JoJo Cosmetic Kit'.

There were highly concerning rumours about their products containing traces of asbestos in 2017, and the fears have now been confirmed by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

The presence of asbestos was identified in three of the brand's products after an investigation, and the JoJo Cosmetic Kit has now been pulled from stores..

Yes, the place where we all bought our first iteration of makeup (blue eyeshadow, anyone else? Sheer lip gloss?) has actual asbestos in a YouTube star's range of cosmetics.

JoJo Siwa is a Nickelodeon star and Youtuber who has collaborated with Claire's on numerous occasions.

Defined by the British Lung Foundation as “a group of minerals made up of microscopic fibres,” asbestos has been shown to damage lungs and possibly cause cancer when breathed in.

Claire’s told Today Style that the palette has been recalled “out of an abundance of caution after testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration indicated the possible presence of trace amount of asbestos fibres in the powder eyeshadow element of the kit.”

A Claire's spokesperson maintained that the company “stands behind the safety of this product and all other Claire’s cosmetic items as such small trace amounts are considered acceptable under European and Canadian cosmetic safety regulations.”

They also pointed out that “Claire’s moved to talc-free cosmetic manufacturing,” in 2018 to “prevent any further concerns about talc contamination.”

Small particles of the contaminated eyeshadow in the JoJo Cosmetic Kit can become airborne when swept onto lids. Full refunds will be offered to anyone who bought the kit, at least.

The future of the brand is now being called into question, with rumours of sinking sales as high street stores struggle to keep up with major stores like H&M and Primark. The company filed for bankruptcy in March.

Justin Bieber has thrown some major shade at Youtuber JoJo Siwa.

The young star is known for her iconic hair bows and unfaltering enthusiasm.

Approaching 16-years-old, the dancer received an amazing gift from West Coast Customs – her first car.

The rainbow-colored BMW convertible has a custom paint job that perfectly fits the personality of its young owner (extra AF).

The car was also adorned with a photo of JoJo and the words "Nickelodeon's JoJo Siwa D.R.E.A.M. The Tour.”

The company reposted her pic and Justin Bieber couldn’t help but comment on her unique wheels.

He wrote "burn it” in the comments three times.

And fans interpreted his comments as major shade, but the Canadian singer was quick to clear things up.

“@itsjojosiwa I have nothing against you,” he tweeted. “It was the car and the colors I didn't like. I really hope you didn't think it was malicious or mean spirited."

Fair play, Justin, for making sure the teen didn’t take it to heart.

JoJo’s mum kept the situation light as well, telling the Baby singer: @justinbieber [crying laughing emoji] burn your own things."

The Youtuber had the perfect response to Justin, slyly taking advantage of the situation to secure her favourite act for her Sweet 16.

“It's all good bro!” she replied. “You can perform at my 16th birthday party and we'll call it good!"

Jojo then reposted a picture of her sitting beside an old Bieber cut out in her new car with the caption: Burn it.

The Youtuber hilariously handled the situtation well, and we’re glad the two can joke around with no hard feelings.
