Billie Joe + Kat Von D

Beauty News January

What happens when an iconic band that made the recent history of punk-rock meets an Iconic #Girlboss of many talents?
A collaboration that will make every edgy addict fall head over heels, the one between Billie Joe Armstrong, frontman of Green Day, and Kat Von D. The Basket Case Anti-Precision Eyeliner (which launched in the USA the first days of January) sold out super fast, but it’s still available at Sephora.
Rumour has it that the extra thick, extra black must-have eyeliner will land in the UK mid-January.

 

Amena Khan is the perfect L’Oréal Hair ambassador

Beauty News January

Amena Khan wears her pretty candy-pink Hijab on the new L’Oréal Paris Elvive World of Care campaign and that’s huge. The beautiful British influencer has joined the campaign with models and singers, but it’s her headscarf that people are focusing on.
Spoiler alert: Muslim girls who choose to wear an headscarf care and love their hair as much as girls who don’t.
For me, my hair is an extension of my femininity. I love styling my hair, I love putting products in it, and I love it to smell nice. It’s an expression of who I am.” says Amena.
Honestly, for us, that’s all a girl needs to represent a brand that loves hair, beauty and women.

Many hope it’s a concealer, and we couldn’t agree more.
What do you think the secret beauty product is?

Beauty News January

After years spent perfecting it, it’s rumored that Norvina Claudia Soare, Anastasia Beverly Hills’ president and #Girlboss, is finally satisfied with her loose glitter formula, which seems scheduled to launch later in 2018.

Is that a hint, Norvina?
