Kylie Jenner trademarks ‘Rise and Shine’, Sunday Riley banned from leaving fake reviews, and other beauty news
1. Kylie Jenner trademarks her viral catchphrase, 'Rise and Shine', for her makeup empire.
The Keeping Up with The Kardashians star caused a stir earlier this month when she was captured on tape serenading her daughter, Stormi, with the phrase, 'rise and shine'. The Internet, naturally, leapt at it, creating countless memes of Jenner photoshopped and remixed into pop songs, auditions of The Voice, and even Teletubbies. She later filed a trademark on the phrase for use in her cosmetics. Does this mean we can expect a Kylie Cosmetics Rise and Shine makeup collection sometime soon? Bet on it.
2. The Federal Trade Commission bans Sunday Riley from leaving fake reviews online.
The cult skincare label was accused of leaving fake product reviews on Sephora.com last year, leading to a full-scale investigation by the Federal Trade Commission. Both parties finally settled this week, where it is agreed upon that Sunday Riley will not doctor reviews from here on out — though they are not made to admit to past misdemeanours.
3. Instagram will be getting rid of all plastic surgery filters.
Spark AR, aka the company responsible for IG Story filters, has recently announced that all plastic surgery filters will be removed. This is line with Instagram's efforts to combat the influence of unrealistic beauty standards, as evidenced by the new restrictions put in place against posts promoting weight loss and cosmetic procedures.
4. Mario Dedivanovic offers us a sneak peek of his highly-anticipated makeup collection with Kim Kardashian.
Fans caught a glimpse of the long-awaited collection in Dedivanovic's birthday dedication for Kim, which featured a black-and-white video of them scrutinising a variety of eyeshadows and passing around pans to create what appears to be a spankin' new palette. "These are the key colours to create the look of Kim," he wrote. Get those credit cards ready, folks. If it's anything like their last collaboration, the range will be sold out in a matter of minutes.
5. Huda Beauty drops a bold new palette named after Earth's most chaotic time.
For those unfamiliar with Mercury Retrograde, it is a celestial phenomenon where the planet slows and appears to be going backwards. Practitioners of astrology claim that this results in tech issues, conflicts, and scheduling complications, since Mercury rules all manner of communication. Eep. But it seems this chaotic period is a good time as any to experiment with bold shadows and new hues — according to Huda Beauty, at least. Their new Mercury Retrograde palette features 18 cosmic hues bearing a shimmering, iridescent finish that is not for the faint of heart. Talk about turning a negative perception on its head, huh?
6. Aesop opens their biggest outlet yet at Marina Bay Sands.
The space, designed in collaboration with local design firm, Asylum, utilises the warm textures of natural clay and stainless steel to convey Singapore's gradual transformation from a humble fishing village to a global hub.
7. Tati Westbrook will be launching a makeup line.
The beauty YouTuber is staying mum as to what her first full collection will entail, though she has teased an eyeshadow palette comprising four different textures in 20 neutral hues.
8. Chantecaille reformulates their iconic Stress Repair Concentrate+.
Version 2.0 is formulated with wild indigo, hawthorn, and Arabian jasmine that banishes dark circles while boosting collagen and hyaluronic acid production for a brighter, lifted visage. Snap it up from all Chantecaille counters from 1 November.
9. Laura Mercier launches a new palette in support of women suffering from ovarian cancer.
Meet the La Palette Naturelle Face and Cheek Palette, which comprises blushes, bronzers, and highlighters that help inject a healthy, sun-kissed glow to your moneymaker. 100% of the proceeds from sales of this limited-edition palette will go towards the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund, which aims to develop efforts that help diagnose and treat women suffering from the condition.
