Jeffree Star throws shade at Kylie Skin and Haus Laboratories, Glossier is launching a clothing line, and other beauty news
1. Jeffree Star disses both Kylie Skin and Haus Laboratories... in the same week.
The makeup mogul may be "tired of the drama", but it hasn't stopped him from throwing shade at both Kylie Skin and Lady Gaga's Haus Laboratories. It all began when Star commented on an Instagram post by makeup insider, Trendmood, in which the platform announced the release of Kylie Skin's body care products. His blithe "Hahahahaha" had fans jumping to Jenner's defense, which prompted him to clap back: "You should probably have a seat because as a human being on this planet, I'm allowed to comment on anyone's releases; it's also my job... Her first skin-care drop was a complete joke and was basically a money grab, so relax before trying to come for me. I'd rather save millions of people money than letting them be ripped off by a celebrity." He later criticised Haus Laboratories' pre-order system, claiming that he "loves Gaga" but that "products should be available immediately when you're at that level of success."
2. Kylie Jenner celebrates her latest Kylie Skin drop with an OTT party.
Think custom-made Kylie Skin everything, from a baby pink and white private jet (!) to matching track suits to wear on the flight. Guests were whisked to a private holiday destination where they lounged by the pool and sipped from Kylie-branded coconuts while giving the latest Kylie Skin body products (body lotion, scrub, and sunscreen) a whirl. Fans certainly didn't expect anything less from the "self-made billionaire."
3. Cult beauty brand Glossier is launching a limited edition clothing line, Glossiwear.
The label is keeping a tight lid on details, but they did provide a sneak peek of a millennial pink (of course) hoodie with the brand's name emblazoned on it.
4. Secret Deodorant donates USD529,000 in support of the US women's soccer team's fight for equal pay.
USD23,000 was also donated to each of the 23 players who helped the US win the fourth world cup title. A full-page ad was later published in The New York Times urging the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) to "stand on the right side of history." Sing it, sis.
5. Fenty Beauty releases a new primer for oily, combination skin.
The OG Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer now comes in a mattifying variation to fight shine, extend foundation wear, and refine the look of pores. This is all thanks to its potent formulation comprising blue agave extracts and blurring powders that transforms skin into a smooth, soft-focus canvas. A perma-Instagram filter over your face? We call dibs.
6. Hanbang Skin Solutions opens a new outlet at Wheelock Place.
Launched in collaboration with the brand's longstanding partner, SkinCeuticals, the new space comes with eight tranquil and spacious treatment rooms. It also introduces a spankin' new treatment — the Tri-Lift Care — which employs an effective three-pronged approach to sculpt facial contours for a brighter, firmer complexion in the long run.
7. Nars introduces its Iconic Lipstick Collection.
The brand commemorates its 25th year in the beauty industry by introducing the Iconic Lipstick Collection, which comprises a provocative lineup of lippies in 60 shades as well as in matte, sheer, and satin finishes. Its original 12 hues first introduced with the inception of the brand, on the other hand, will be encased in soft-matte red packaging instead of the usual matte black.
8. Sephora US pulls sale items after beauty YouTuber accuses them of selling expired makeup.
The discovery that several products in Sephora's sale section were manufactured — and discontinued — years back was pointed out by makeup guru, Lauren Mae, in her latest video. Sephora then responded by removing the items entirely, though they claim that "the products are not expired or nearing its expiration date." Hmm...
9. Neutrogena recalls their Light Therapy Masks due to eye-related issues.
According to the brand, "a small subset of potentially susceptible people (including people with certain eye-related disorders), repeated exposure may cause varying degrees of retinal damage that could be irreversible and could accelerate peripheral vision impairment or loss." Other potential adverse events associated with use of this device includes eye pain, eye discomfort, eye irritation, tearing, blinding, blurring of vision, seeing spots/flashes, and other changes in vision. Eep. Return it or lose it, folks.
