Time for a quick beauty bulletin – rounding up the latest beauty launches, news and gossip.
Pretty major news from Deciem in that Brandon, the CEO, was ousted from the company by Estee Lauder. His downfall has been inevitable for a while now, with his paranoid Instagram posts but the removal from the company entirely seems pretty major. He seems to be in the midst of a mental health crisis so I hope he gets better soon.
Apparently the team at Sunday Riley have been pretty strict about employees leaving reviews on Sephora. This is nothing new at all within the beauty industry (I’ve been asked/told by loads of bosses to do exactly this) but the Sunday Riley team have a whole deceitful system using VPNs. Scandalous. Receipts here.
The trend for organic beauty shows no signs of slowing down with L’oreal launching a new brand into the French market. I’m in two minds because offering organic beauty to the mass market is always good for those who can’t afford niche brands but the L’oreal brand is not exactly eco-friendly.
Get ready to see body hair more in razor adverts. After the brand Billie featured -gasp- hair in an advert promoting shaving and it getting good feedback, Venus/Gilette look set to be launching something similar. Coming to a TV near you soon…
So we’re getting into Christmas territory, which means there’s a whole host of party makeup launches. Gird your loins, people! There’s lushness from Bobbi Brow, MAC, Anastasia Beverley Hills, Drunk Elephant, Caudalie, Urban Decay and more. All the new makeup and I don’t know where to start.
Tropic has just launched the Pure Lagoon serum, which manages to fight blemishes without drying the skin. I’m testing, and my skin is happily cooperating because it has given me loads of spots around my chin (yay). It’s naturally blue thanks to the ingredients. Y’know I love me some Tropic.
Dyson just launched their new hair curling tool which is disgustingly expensive and looks incredibly fancy. I want, just because it looks so incredibly high-tech. Would also love a Dyson hoover to be honest.
Alex Steinherr has also recently launched a capsule skincare collection with Primark which just seems like such an odd link-up to me. I imagine she’s being paid a lot… I tried a few of the products in store and wasn’t blown away although affordable skincare for the masses is always good.
