Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli has been dropped by Sephora. It is unclear whether she was fully aware of her parents' alleged actions.

Earlier this week, news broke that the 19-year-old's famous parents, Massimo Giannulli and Lori Loughlin, were charged with alleged conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in connection with an alleged college admissions scheme.

Since news of the scandal was released, the Sephora Collection x Olivia Jade Palette was bombarded with negative reviews on the product's page on the retailer's web site, where reviewers bashed Jade and demanded the palette be discontinued. She said her comment about being interested in partying only "was super ignorant and totally came across like I'm not grateful for college", in the apology video.

"The company does not now have a relationship with either of them", the company said in a statement to CNN.

Loughlin and Giannulli were taken into federal custody and later released on separate $1 million bonds on Wednesday. The indictment says they "agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team - despite the fact that they did not participate in crew - thereby facilitating their admission to USC". Now, just a day after her mom was arrested, Sephora has made a decision to ditch Olivia Jade.

US attorney Andrew Lelling announced that the parents charged in the scam represent "a catalog of wealth and privilege".

The U.S. college admissions scandal that erupted this week has spawned lawsuits accusing rich, well-connected parents and prestigious schools of conspiring to admit those parents' children at the expense of the less affluent.

In a YouTube video published in August 2018, the social media influencer told her almost 2 million subscribers that she wanted to attend college for the full experience of "game days" and "partying".

"I am upset that I was unknowingly involved in a large scheme that helps give kids who may not work as hard as others an advantage over those who truly deserve those spots", Jack told The Hollywood Reporter. Fellow actress Felicity Huffman is also charged with similar offences, as she apparently paid $15,000 for her daughter's SAT to be corrected where wrong answers had been given. The powder, which cost $28, was a huge sense of pride for Olivia Jade who wrote on their website, on a page that has since been pulled, "I want to say a huge thank you to my subscribers for believing in me and making it possible for me to have the opportunity to create such a attractive palette with Sephora Collection". Her last pic on IG was shared in February and her last YouTube video went up just days before the scam was revealed!
