Rinna Beauty Debut’s New Lip Kit by Social Media Star and Runway Sensation Amelia Gray Hamlin

She’s strutted down runways, melted paparazzi lenses, and set Instagram afire with her precocious beauty and fearless style. Now, fashion and social media phenom Amelia Gray Hamlin is bringing her best life to home life for Rinna Beauty, the namesake cosmetic brand launched by her mother Lisa Rinna, a bold taste name in her own right. Hamlin, whose 1 million + followers span the world, will debut on Cyber Monday (Nov. 29)  the “Amelia Kit,” featuring lipstick, gloss and liner that reflect her attitude, allure, and attraction. The latest addition to the Rinna Beauty collection retails for $49 and is available exclusively on www.rinnabeauty.com. As part of Cyber Monday, Rinna Beauty will extend a 50 percent discount on all Lip Kits.

“My mom is so fearless in everything she does, and I wanted to create that spirit in my Lip Kit,” said Amelia, who has become a ubiquitous force on the runway (Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Cowan, Dennis Basso, etc.), glossy pages (Vogue, W) and the red carpet. Her lip kit, a part of Rinna Beauty’s ICON collection, includes the “Lil Extra” lip liner (0.2g/0.01 oz) in a neutral mauve tone; “Angel’s Kiss” lipstick (3.9g/.14oz) a lightly frosted bubblegum pink; and “Frost Bite” lip gloss (4ml/.14 fl. oz) a shiny frosted silver. “My style is chic, and I wanted to have fun with the names,” she said.

The “Amelia Kit” is the first collaboration Rinna Beauty has launched with Lisa’s family, but not the last.

“It’s a family business!” says Lisa. “Rinna Beauty is not a celebrity brand; it’s a cosmetic company rooted in quality, style, and individuality. I’m so excited to have my daughter join me in representing — and advocating— for something so meaningful. We’ve created a line of products that are vegan, paraben-free, not tested on animals, that use only the finest materials and ingredients, and which make people feel special.”

The Amelia kit joins the astonishingly successful collection of her mother’s lip kits, each of which has its own dynamic personality. Since its debut late 2020, Rinna Beauty has become one of the hottest cosmetic brands to launch. Its first products, the ICON Lip Kits, in Lisa’s signature nude shades, were immediate best sellers and crashed the rinnabeauty.com website several times. Lauded for their luxury formulas and packaging, Rinna Beauty is quickly becoming a front runner in the clean, vegan beauty lane. The brand has released several new shades/ incarnations of the kit through 2021, including the “alter ego” collection: Pinky, Kiki, Heidi, Sasha and Sabine.

SORMÉ TREATMENT COSMETICS REVEALS PRODUCT RELAUNCH: TikTok Unboxing

Sormé announces the relaunch of its product line within drugstores conforming as a cosmetics brand that approaches makeup from a skincare point of view, aiming towards consumers of newer generations that are more knowledgeable of quality ingredients and mindful of what is being used on their skin.

For more than 20 years, Sormé has worked on perfecting their makeup line by teaming up with leading formulators and professional makeup artists from around the world to ensure a noteworthy composition of the foremost anti-aging technologies and traditional beauty insights compacted into every product. Clinically proven age-reversing peptides are infused with healing vitamins, pure minerals, antioxidants, and active plant botanicals to help nourish and protect the skin while enhancing the consumer’s natural beauty. This combination of superior ingredients and high definition pigments mixed with skincare additives are the basis to the creation of Sormé’s professional grade cosmetics brand.

Founded by Morad Amirieh, his interest in the retail beauty industry began from his father who was a beauty distributor, which inspired him to ultimately build his own makeup brand. “I set out to create a cosmetics line that I would proudly share with my daughters”, says Morad.

Sormé comes from the Egyptian name for the natural black “kohl” substance that was once used by queens and princesses such as Cleopatra, who began the sensation of intensely pigmented, black exotic eye makeup dating back to the fourth millennium. This influence remains prevalent within Sormé’s products as they are formulated with the finest color pigments available in an effort to enhance the eyes while maintaining an allure that is simply timeless.

Aside from extreme pay-off eyeshadows, Sormé’s cosmetics line is filled with moisturizing lipsticks and balms, nourishing bronzer duos, multi-functional blush sticks, vitamin fortified eye and lip liners, and shea butter infused conditioning mascaras. Their concealers and BB creams are loaded with antioxidant enriched complexes that include ginseng, rosemary, argan oil, chamomile, and cucumber seed oil, along with natural SPFs to help prevent the skin from radical damage.

This sophisticated, multi-tasking line of makeup can be found in select CVS stores nationwide, and also online at www.sorme.com.

THREE ALABAMA SPAS NAMED TOP 30 IN NORTH AMERICA FOR 2020

While North American travelers haven’t been able to travel as much as they would like in 2020, we hope that the following list of best spas will inspire your trips to come — whenever they may be. Three of the top 30 spas for 2020 in North America were in Alabama on the RTJ Spa Trail and are owned by the Retirement Systems of Alabama.

The Top 100 Spas of 2020 list includes 74 spas from the United States, 19 spas from Canada, three from Mexico, and one each from Barbados, The Bahamas, Jamaica, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. https://travelprnews.com/spas-of-america-unveils-top-100-spas-of-2020-59465413/travel-press-release/2021/01/06/

“The North American spa and wellness industry was devastated by the events of the past year,” says Spas of America president Craig Oliver. “Many spas have been forced to close, reduce staff, and operate at a reduced capacity. On the bright side, we are seeing strong interest from consumers who are searching for relaxation, mental health, wellness, and escape. We have no doubt North American spas will rise to meet this challenge in the year ahead.”

The RTJ Spa Trail has six spas across Alabama. “We are delighted with these honors and believe all of our spas offer world-class experiences at a time when people need them,” said Taylor Fields, Director of Spa for PCH Hotels & Resorts. “Our spas at Ross Bridge, Opelika, and Florence make this prestigious international list.” Other spas on the RTJ Spa Trail are at the Grand Hotel, the Battle House, and Renaissance Montgomery.

Pinterest Launches AR Try-On For Eyeshadow

It’s not as easy to shop in-store and try on make-up these days, but Pinterest is introducing the next best thing. The visual discovery app launched AR Try On for eyeshadow, so you can browse eyeshadow shades, try on, and purchase in-stock products based on what works for your skin tone.

Without skin smoothing or image altering effects, Try On shows you authentic results. It’s called augmented reality, but it’s really more actual reality. AR Try On for eyeshadow is also integrated with skin tone ranges, so Pinners can filter results by makeup that best matches their skin tone, and a feature will also show inspirational looks with similar shades so you can see how the colors appears on others.

With AR Try On for eyeshadow, powered by Lens, Pinners can tap into visual search and AR technology to try on and shop beauty products right from the camera on their phone. Simply click the camera icon in search and start browsing different shades of eyeshadow, try on in-stock shades, and purchase. With existing AR Try On for lipstick, Pinners can toggle between lip and eyeshadow looks. The virtual eyeshadow experience is now live across more than 4,000 shoppable shades from brands including Lancome, YSL, Urban Decay, and NYX Cosmetics.

The addition of these AR capabilities allows Pinners to tap into a growing desire to experiment with their makeup looks. Over the last year, Pinterest has seen searches* grow for out of the box makeup looks including pastel eyeshadow (12x), crazy eyeshadow (4x), sunset eyeshadow (4x) and butterfly eyeshadow (2x).

This is just the latest AR offering from Pinterest, which launched AR Try On for lipstick last year. With the addition of AR Try On for eyeshadow, Pinners can now toggle between lipstick and eyeshadow looks until they find the look that works best. You can also send products to friends via text, email or various social apps for them to try on the product!

To access the Try On for eyeshadow feature: 

  • Open the Pinterest app and click the camera icon in search
  • Scroll different shades and watch as they appear on your face (no skin altering or smoothing effects in place!)
  • Click a product to purchase on the retailer’s site

This is the latest update to make it easy to shop the latest trends on Pinterest.

According to a recent story on Glossy.co, “the pandemic has ‘accelerated’ adoption of virtual try-on techniques…leading to a 32% increase in use of makeup try-on…” Pinterest is joining company’s including YouCam, SnapChat and Google, all who are adding these AR try on features for ease of shopping.

Treat Yourself Like Royalty With These Spa Day Tips #NationalPrincessDay

Wednesday, November 18th is National Princess Day – and even if you aren’t actually a princess, you can still celebrate by treating yourself like royalty with a luxurious and pampering spa day worthy of the Duchess of Cambridge.

To plan a DIY spa day, look no further than TheSoul Publishing’s popular 5-Mintue Crafts Girly YouTube page for spa tips that will help you relax and channel your inner nobility. A few of the tips include:

  • Activated charcoal has numerous benefits for your skin, from unclogging pores to smoothing texture; start your spa day with a DIY charcoal bath bomb made with baking soda, activated charcoal, citric acid, and essential oils (instructions here).
  • Exfoliate your skin with a homemade citrus scrub that smells as good as it feels! Mix sea salt, orange zest, lemon juice, and oils for a luxurious scrub that removes dead skin cells (instructions here).
  • Revitalize limp hair or split ends with a nourishing hair mask made with household items: just mix crushed aspirin and shampoo, and let it sit on your hair for a few minutes. You’ll notice an immediate difference (instructions here).

OPI Nail Polish: Stay Tough As Nails

Let’s be clear, I love OPI Nail Polish. Not for the purposes of this blog post but my admiration goes back to being a teenager.  I was eager to get professional manicures because my mom would get her nails filled-in.  To me, this signified being the ultimate adult; going to the nail salon.  As a grown woman, I still have that same level of excitement when entering the salon.  All of those nail colors are fascinating but I can only pick one!

OPI shipped me a box of the latest shades for the season and I couldn’t wait to share them.  Remember, we are a few months away from the new year; continue to stay tough as nails!
