Also in this week's beauty news: How did a not-black woman end up on the cover a magazine about black hairstyles?
Another week, another heap of bags and boxes containing jars, tubes and bottles of beauty schmutz. Yay!
One of these weeks, I'm going to introduce you to the great guys from the Time Inc messenger center who deliver packages to our desks. I know when I see one of their blue shirts and hear a "bleep-bloop" sound that they're bringing something for me to sign for. (They're not robots — the "bleep-bloop" is the little digital signature thing they carry.) After almost a year here, they know exactly which brands' deliveries are going to get the biggest smile out of me — and they never make fun of me for the chronically product-smothered state of my desk.
But for now, I'll just be introducing you to some of the most interesting beauty stuff we got last week. Ready? OK! (Sorry — inner cheerleader came out for a second.)
- Are you excited that the Selena collection is finally (almost) here? I feel like we've been getting teasers for years!
- Don't you wish all beauty brands would use the same terminology? Like, lotion in the US and lotion elsewhere are two totally different things.
- What's your ideal early-fall nail color?
