Beauty Roundup: An electrifying line from MAC, a $500 million beauty acquisition, and makeup to match your zodiac sign
It makes sense for the things you use to prettify yourself to also look pretty themselves, right? This week’s beauty roundup has no shortage of gorgeously designed makeup! We’ve got the latest on MAC’s IG-worthy new collection and Colourpop’s out-of-this-world collab with KathleenLights. There’s also been a gigantic luxury skincare brand acquisition that we hope will make scoring their products easier in the future. Read on for all the deets!
Get your spark on
Excuse us while we make heart eye emojis, but MAC Cosmetics has just dropped the prettiest collection this month! The new MAC Electric Wonder Collection is a marbled gold and pink dream that’s guaranteed to give you that glow and sparkle. The limited edition collection includes brushes, bronzers, highlighters, lipsticks, and eye and face palettes in desert tones of peach, pink, and bronze. We’ve got our eye on the Next to Nothing Bronzing Powder in Canyon Dreamin’ (P1,900), Ignite Wonder Face Palette (P3,900), Lip Glass in Nature Freak (P1,200), and the Natural Vice Eyeshadow Palette (P4,250). You can now shop the Electric Wonder Collection in a MAC store near you!
Tatcha way (uh-huh uh-huh) I like it
Another day, another BIG acquisition in the beauty world! According to WWD, it has been confirmed that corporate giant Unilever has acquired skincare company Tatcha for a whopping $500 million! Although the exact terms and details of the deal weren’t revealed, the luxury skincare brand is now part of the impressive Unilever portfolio and joins brands like Murad, REN Clean Skincare, Hourglass, Living Proof, and Kate Somerville. Tatcha is reported to bring in $100 million in net sales this 2019, which made them an attractive acquisition for Unilever, not to mention the company’s goal to support and expand women-founded businesses. This is also one of Unilever’s biggest acquisitions to date. We’re excited to see what’s next for Tatcha, and hope we’ll be seeing them in the Philippines soon!

What would Winnie do
Despite just launching her KKW Beauty Body Foundations, the reality star turned beauty mogul just revealed on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she is, in fact, working on a makeup collection with supermodel Winnie Harlow! The Canadian model and vitiligo (skin condition) advocate has graced many red carpets and even headlined in several beauty campaigns, so the news has tons of fans excited for this (still) secret collab. Could there be a red lipstick? Bold eye shadows? A poppin new highlighter? There aren’t any details yet but knowing Kim, we can expect a lot of clues and teasers on Instagram! Have you tried anything from KKW Beauty?

What’s your sign?
This ain’t no retrograde moment, my friends! Following the success of their The Zodiac Eye Shadow Palette with YouTube beauty guru KathleenLights, Colourpop Cosmetics is back with an even bigger and bolder new collection. The brand has teamed up yet again with Kathleen to produce a line of single eyeshadows and powder blushes. From satins to sparkles, mattes and shimmers, this new collection screams fun and bold! The single shadows retail for $6 each while the pressed powder blushes retail for $7 each in keeping with Colourpop’s affordable price tag. We’re loving the eyeshadow shades Gemini (gold shimmer), Libra (rose gold), Taurus (matte brown), Pisces (glitter teal), and the pressed powder blush in I Need Space (mauve pink). Shop the new Zodiac Collection on the Colourpop website here.

Shimmer me timbers!
Okay, I know we just featured her new flawless foundation collection last week but Pat McGrath is slaying the beauty world once again with yet another beauty drop. The “Mother of Makeup” has launched the glittery lipstick collection of our dreams! The new BlitzTrance Lipstick ($38) is a smooth, creamy lippie with maximum shine for a “glitter lips” look, minus all that chunky and over-the-top glitter feel. Infused with finer pearl pigments and rich emollients, these lippies are not only creamier, but are more hydrating and comfortable to wear. Shop Pat McGrath on Sephora Philippines here.
