Cardi B has a beauty line in the works, Harry Styles pierces his own ears, and other beauty news this week
1. Cardi B has a beauty line that will be "coming very soon".
The news broke during her interview with Entertainment Tonight, where the singer confirmed that her very own beauty line will be hitting shelves in time. If it's anything like the crazy-cool makeup looks she frequently wears, we're in for a treat.
2. Kylie Jenner launches a skincare line.
Launching 22 May, Kylie Skin will serve up vegan, cruelty-, gluten- and sulfate-free products. No further details are announced, though Kylie is shown using a moisturiser in her promotional teaser for Kylie Skin. Get pumped, ladies.
3. Ariana Grande teases a "Thank U, Next" fragrance.
The star took to social media to announce that a "Thank U, Next" fragrance is imminent. Apparently, it will smell like "Ari if she went to the beach one time." Sounds like a pitch-perfect summer fragrance, if you ask us.
4. Kendall Jenner Beauty is going to be a thing.
Her team reportedly submitted papers to get "Kendall" and "Kendall Jenner" trademarked for her beauty line, with it selling everything from perfumes to nail polish to skincare. Fans suspect a fragrance, considering how the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star only recently scored a deal with skincare brand, Proactiv. Time will tell.
5. Fancl opens their first-ever boutique in the East.
Landing in Tampines Mall, the boutique will house the brand's full collection of skincare and beauty offerings alongside their one-of-a-kind HD50x Skin Analyser Test. The device provides in-depth consultation on one's skin health, hydration and collagen structure.
6. Marc Jacobs Beauty has released their first-ever skincare product.
Known as the Youthquake Hydra-Full Retexturizing Gel Crème, the multitasking moisturiser works to hydrate and retexturise complexions, providing a smooth, even canvas that allows for makeup application with ease. Lady Gaga and Priyanka Chopra consider themselves fans, with makeup artist Sarah Tanno foregoing foundation in favour of this bad boy for Gaga at the Met Gala. And on that note...
7. Lady Gaga gives us a sneak preview of Haus Beauty on the Met Gala pink carpet.
Wheeling out a hot pink wagon with Haus of Gaga emblazoned on it, fans — naturally — hit maximum zoom on their phone screens... only to discover felt hats and tiny bottles of champagne instead. Tsk. It does suggest, however, that a release date will be announced any day now, especially when followed by the set-up of a Haus Laboratories YouTube account. Fingers crossed, ladies.
8. Fenty Beauty is poised to release more Gloss Bomb hues.
Queen RiRi was conspicuously absent from this year's Met Gala — possibly for work reasons, if her cryptic (lol) Instagram story is anything to go by. Hinting at new hues available for the fan-favourite Gloss Bombs, fans are pinning their hopes on a Trophy Wife edition or, failing that, a new album (unlikely).
9. Harry Styles allegedly pierced his own ears for the Met Gala.
According to longtime stylist and friend, Harry Lambert, the single pearl earring donned by Styles was a last minute addition, with Instagram's head of fashion partnerships, Eva Chen, confirming that Styles used a needle and took the plunge himself. Ok, but why?
