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.

To kick off the campaign, the brand will make donations to seven non-profit organizations. Each organization was chosen by a Milani Maker and represents the brand’s mission to support causes that are changing the world. Milani Makers will continue to raise awareness of these causes via content on Instagram.

“I’m proud to be named a Milani Maker and to partner with a brand that has always been devoted to individuality and creating quality, cruelty-free makeup at an affordable price. Thanks to Milani, I am able to give back to The Blue Mountain Humane Society who is doing amazing things for the animals in my community,” said Rocio Soria (@rocioxsoria).

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.

How To Make More Ethical Fashion Choices

Ethics are important in all aspects of life, but they’re especially important when it comes to a form of consumer culture. Fashion could be considered through this lens, as it is ever-changing, and the industry makes use of materials that must ultimately be manufactured and handled.

Ethical fashion, thankfully, is becoming more and more of a fixture,  and not just a trend. Of course, that’s not always the case. Some still decide to wear furs, even though we all know that the cruelty to animals exhibited through these products is questionable at best. That being said, this post is not here to judge or point the finger at anyone. Like anything, you can be more effective in making a change when you focus it on yourself, and consider your own habits and practices.

So, how can you begin to make more ethical fashion choices? Moreover, how can these choices remain sustainable, and relevant, and part of your schedule? After all, ethics are not something you ‘grow out of’ or become bored by, but are a commitment you must make. With the following advice, you’ll see how and why:

Shop For Cruelty-Free Beauty Products

Shopping for cruelty-free makeup is a great place to start. As beauty is often the most fundamental aspect of designing your outfit for the day, it can be worthwhile to get this right. Do you know if these items are sustainable? Are they well-sourced? Are they vegan? If you can answer yes to those questions, then you’re quite literally supporting the business that can continue in a conscience free manner. You don’t have to pay the moral price for beauty in 2020, and that’s a fantastic thing.

Buy Used Clothing

Buy used clothing. You can find worthwhile older threads with vintage appeal through apps such as Depop. In some places, Instagram stores can connect you to small-time sellers hoping to push an aesthetic or style. This can help you make a new home for items you like the look of, and that helps it avoid being thrown out or given to landfill. In a way, this helps you continue the natural life cycle of items that deserve respect. It helps you celebrate the past of fashion by making it new. That’s a great place to start.


Check The Source

It can be extremely instructive to vet the source of your fashion purchases. What does this brand say about their values, and how transparent are their sources? Do they have controversies in the past? It could be that only sourcing your purchases through brands you can trust and that have spoken on their practices with full transparency will help you support those companies really do appreciate. After all, the strongest way to vote is with your wallet, and diverting those funds to practices you wish to see. Also, be vocal about your appreciation! Brands need to know the growing size of the ethics-based market.

With this advice, we’re certain you can make much more ethical fashion choices.

TEYANA TAYLOR ANNOUNCES NEW COLLECTION WITH M·A·C COSMETICS

M·A·C Cosmetics is excited to announce a highly anticipated, limited-edition makeup launch in collaboration with one of the most versatile entertainers of her generation, Teyana Taylor.

M·A·C  x Teyana Taylor collection has been over a year in the making, born out of a partnership between M·A·C and Teyana stemming from her authentic love for the brand and its artistry.

As a powerful, creative artist, Teyana taps into the spirit of individuality, is a trendsetter, and a true embodiment of M·A·C’s creative compass. Inspired by her love for classic 90’s fashion and beauty, Teyana worked alongside M·A·C to create her exclusive, multi-product collection – from the products, packaging, product names, and even the photoshoot. “I was inspired by the 90s and the heart & soul of Harlem and wanted to show that through the shades and packaging.” – Teyana Taylor.

Teyana has been a true fan of the brand since she was 15 years old and began mixing, matching, and playing with M·A·C products to develop her own finishes, colors, and textures. Her first memory was receiving a gift box filled with M·A·C products from special-deco collections like Hello Kitty and the iconic Alexander McQueen collaboration. The M·A·C x Teyana Taylor Collection was created to embody a new approach to beauty; encouraging fans to create their own version of her style and vibe.

“I’m very excited to be partnering with a company like M•A•C who I’ve watched collaborate with strong women of color over the years. I’ve been a fan of M•A•C ever since I was 15 years old and started experimenting with makeup, it was the first brand that made me like makeup. I’m so grateful and excited to be sharing this beautiful collection I created with the M•A•C team but also hoping to inspire other young women that anything and everything is possible.” – Teyana Taylor. “As a longtime friend of the brand, we’ve grown to know and love Teyana for having a style unlike anyone else.

She’s fierce, bold and unapologetically herself, no matter what she’s wearing – all qualities we stand for at M•A•C, and are so excited to bring to life through this new collaboration.” Ukonwa Ojo, Global Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President, Global Marketing, M•A•C Cosmetics.

As a Dancer, Choreographer, Actress, Model, Fitness aficionado, Songwriter, Producer, Director, and now M·A·C’s newest collaborator, Teyana embodies artistry boldly, originally and without boundaries. Stay tuned for more details about M·A·C X Teyana Taylor, coming soon.

 

The No Makeup Look: Top Picks for Tinted Moisturizers and BB Creams

Although we’re coping with the COVID-19 pandemic inside of our homes, the weather is constantly changing.  One day it’s chilly and the next moment it’s hot!  That means it’s time for a new foundation in our make-up bags.

One of my personal favorites for the warmer months is the use of Tinted Moisturizers (or BB creams).  They hydrate the skin while giving a natural glow.  Basically, it’s a light foundation coverage and skin care moisturizer combined in one application.

Tinted moisturizers (and BB creams) are an easy way to even the skin without the use of heavy products.

Apply this product to the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose!

Listed below are top picks for Tinted Moisturizers and BB Creams:
  1. NYX Bare With Me
  2. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
  3. Neutrogena SPF 20 in Medium to Dark
  4. NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
  5. Black Radiance BB Cream
