It’s back! If you’ve been here way back when I started this little space, you’ll already know what I’m talking about. If you’re new here, hello! I’m reviving an old series I used to run over here because there are just so many things going around. And I want to share those you should know about. This week, the buzz is all about releases. Here’s what you need to know.
New Stunna Lip Paints
The brown shade Rihanna wore for her lingerie line Savage x Fenty’s NYFW show caught my eye. I guess I’m too much of a fan to notice that she didn’t already have that shade in her beauty line. Turns out it’s one of the newest shades in her Stunna Lip Paint line. It’s called Unveil, and it’s a delicious chocolate brown. Rih didn’t stop with that ode to the ’90s, though. She also released something for us mauve-y nude-loving ladies. My friend Rae said I might finally pop my Fenty cherry with Uncuffed. I think she’s right. That or Unbutton, a peachy nude that’s so gorgeous.
Speaking of cherries, Urban Decay has released the latest addition to their Naked line. It’s a cherry-inspired collection that includes an eyeshadow palette, lipsticks, lip liners, eyeliners and a blush palette. Yes, the collection had me at the name. With the original Naked palette being put to the rest, I think this is a good alternative albeit in a very different shade range.
Duckie Thot for L’Oreal
Duckie Thot can be described in many words, but I guess we can all agree that the best one to use is gorgeous. After being one of Fenty Beauty’s muses, she’s getting more attention — and rightfully so! The model has been chosen as the newest global ambassador for L’Oreal, and I’m happy to see that the brand is taking this move towards inclusivity. (Here’s hoping this isn’t tokenism, but I’ll take what I can get.)
Astrology in beauty
Lots of brands are coming out with astrology-inspired beauty products, it would be difficult to name each one. But here’s an article on why millennials are so obsessed with signs and stars.
