Hello, 2019!!! How has your first week been so far, PV fam? We hoped it’s been filled with nothing but good food, loads of laughs, and tons of beauty! This week’s roundup is the perfect way to celebrate the first weekend of the year as we’re talking Benefit Cosmetics newest makeup product (they haven’t launched something like this since 2014), FENTY Beauty’s epic drop, and exciting news from BYS! We also have an update on Lady Gaga’s beauty company and L’Oreal’s newest foundation! Are yah ready? Let’s go!
Rolling into 2019
They say the best things come in pairs and there’s no denying that we love a good “one-two-punch,” which is why Benefit’s newest product has us (and our wallets) ready. To add to the already massively successful Roller Lash Mascara, Benefit is launching the Roller Liner ($22), a 24-hour wear matte felt-tip liner that promises super pigmented wings that don’t drag or jag. Available in brown and black, these babies just launched in the US and we can’t wait for them to get here!

It’s a FENTY New Year!
We found love in 2019 cause oh na na, what’s her name! Rihanna is making 2019 her year with FENTY Beauty as the brand is launching a massive collection of new products that we already know are going to be best sellers, like, ASAP! With 40 shades of their Pro Filt’r Foundation, you’d think the brand covered a majority of the shade range, right? Wrong.
This 2019, FENTY Beauty is launching an additional 10 shades to their foundation line along with 50 corresponding shades of the new Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer ($26)! Yes, we’re getting full coverage concealers, too! Plus they’re also set to launch the Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder ($32), Powder Puff Setting Brush 170, Precision Concealer Brush 180, and Lil Precision Makeup Sponge Duo 105! You can expect all of these new bits to drop on January 11 so keep an eye on FENTY Beauty on Sephora here.

Haus it Going?
Well, she definitely has a good Poker Face because we didn’t see this coming! With the success of her movie A Star is Born and numerous replays for the soundtrack, it looks like 2019 is going to be another epic year for Lady Gaga. In a very subtle play online, the hit maker has put up a website for her rumored beauty line Haus Beauty. The site, which is currently just a black page with no images, has a signup function where visitors can send in their emails to get updates on whatever it is she’s cooking. This reminds us of what Rihanna did back in 2017 with FENTY Beauty and it begs the question - is something launching very soon? We’ll keep you updated as this story unfolds!

Singing a new tune
It’s a new year and a new adventure for award-winning singer Regine Velasquez-Alcasid. Asia’s Song Bird is now BYS Cosmetics’ newest ambassador! We know that BYS isn’t new to getting superstars to front their campaigns, and having Regine is definitely an amazing surprise this 2019! Fronting the Be Your Own Expert campaign, Regine is seen sporting a gorgeous dark red lip, smoky eyes, flawless skin, and chiseled cheeks. We can’t wait to see what she and BYS have in store for us in the coming months. Regine has always been known to do her own makeup for shows, guestings, and events so a special collection could very well be in the works!
