The channel was subject to much criticism and not many views. During the end of 2018, Lainey's gender, or lack thereof, heavily veered toward the male side, which does not stereotypically wear makeup, all which may have been factors in stopping the channel.
In 2019, Kai uploaded a video to Laineybot where he made fun of his beauty videos and critiqued them, much of the time being self-depricating. In the video, it was revealed that part of the reason the channel ceased releasing videos was because he did not think he was good at makeup. One of the most heavily critiqued videos, a video about transforming into a Halloween clown, was the last one on the channel and not only heavily criticized by viewers, but also Kai in the video.
