1. JLo Beauty is a reality.

One of Hollywood's most prominent multi-hyphenates will be adding beauty mogul to her (already) teeming résumé. And while Lopez has yet to give any indication if it will be a makeup, skincare, or wellness brand, she did post a selfie — sporting her legendary, lit-from-within glow — with the hashtag #JLoBeauty. It's likely to be a hybrid of both cosmetics and complexion products, though, seeing how she's filed a trademark under "cosmetics, skin moisturisers, cleansers, and creams." Only time will tell, we suppose. And in the vein of celebrity beauty brands in the works...


2. Kim Kardashian skincare is coming your way.

The news broke after Kim K's team filed to trademark KKW Skin. The brand will encompass moisturisers, cleansers, toners, and more. This was then followed by a second filing, where "retail store services" was added to the line-up. A brick-and-mortar front for the Kardashian beauty empire? We suspect so.

3. Bella Hadid opens up on what it's like to have Lyme disease.

Hadid has been struggling with the chronic condition for the last eight years, experiencing symptoms ranging from an irregular heartbeat to brain fog and joint pain. She took to Instagram stories to detail the side effects she regularly deals with. "Every day I feel at least 10 of these attributes without fail... since I was probably 14, but more aggressively when I turned 18," she wrote. Her mother, Yolanda Hadid, was also diagnosed with Lyme's disease, and has sworn to find a cure for her children and the "million others debilitated by this invisible disease."


4. Nudestix will be expanding into skincare.

They pride themselves on "simple, multi-tasking vegan skincare" and will debut on 10 October, as detailed on their Instagram account, Nudestixskin. Fingers crossed that the company will bring their easy-to-use, on-the-go philosophy to their skincare, too.


5. Kate Hudson debuts a beauty supplement line.

Called InBloom, its full range comprises five different powders — Essential Elements, Beauty Aura, Brain Flow, Energy Shift, and Dream Sleep — that are made with 100% plant-derived, gluten-free, non-GMO ingredients. In an interview with Refinery29, Hudson revealed that she wanted InBloom to feel like "a better way to approach daily multivitamins." To seal the deal as the next Instagram-famous wellness label to watch: all goods are housed in environmentally-friendly that are fully recyclable.


6. Katy Perry commemorates the birth of her daughter with some apt nail art.

Welcome to the world, Daisy Dove Bloom. The singer revealed her child's name in partnership with UNICEF via Instagram. This was done so as to raise funds and awareness for expecting mothers in need of access to proper healthcare. The black and white photo features Daisy's tiny hand alongside Perry's well-manicured talons that are bearing — ya guessed it — a daisy decal. Aw.


7. Kaia Gerber dyes her hair hot pink.

Under the guidance of legendary hairstylist, Guido Palau, no less. The model detailed the entire process on IGTV, where she addressed her love for Kurt Cobain, mullets, and a book club Gerber started during quarantine. She also spoke of wanting to try pink locks for the longest time. "When I cut my hair, it changed my life a lot, because I felt more like my own person," she said. That's why I think I started experimenting a lot more with my hair."


8. L'Oréal USA aims to have 100% sustainable packaging by 2025.

The beauty giant dropped a press release announcing their plans just days back. "L'Oréal is committed to doing our part to protect the planet from the global climate crisis we are facing, and we are transforming our business to do so," said Danielle Azoulay, L'Oréal USA's head of corporate social responsibility and sustainability. "We are proud to be part of the U.S. Plastics Pact and join over 60 organizations in working together toward system-wide change toward a circular economy for plastic in the United States." That's definitely good to hear, at any rate.
