Beauty Roundup: BT21 skincare, Vice Cosmetics brows, and Jaclyn's mysterious disappearance
Happy July! Yes, it’s a new month and we have a beauty roundup filled with exciting launches, fresh faces, and more limited edition collections. And we literally have a little of everything: from Urban Decay to Vice Cosmetics, BT21, and Jaclyn Hill. Better grab a snack ‘cause we’re bringing the tea!
Sugar, spice and everything Vice
Mark your calendars because it looks like Vice Cosmetics is dropping something big. In a teaser video on their official Facebook page, the local brand revealed that they’re finally coming out with a range of brow products! The products seen are the Gandoll Micro Brow Pencil and the Brow Gel, which is giving us major “lip kit” vibes! No word yet on the prices of these babies, but we’ll be watching out for the drop on July 20!
Pretty Different, Absolutely Fabulous
Yassss, honey! Known for never skipping a beat and always going against the norm with their launches and ambassadors, Urban Decay has just announced the new faces to headline their Pretty Different campaign for self-love. And who better to talk about self-love than body positive artist Lizzo, Reggaeton singer Karol G, gender fluid supporter and actor Ezra Miller, K-Pop Queen CL, and tough gal actress Joey King! The brand calls these trailblazers a perfect fit for the campaign as they champion uniqueness, strength, and individuality in their respective fields. We can’t wait to see more of these gorgeous faces and the new drops from UD in the coming months. You can check out all the campaigns videos on Urban Decay’s Instagram.

Skincare that you’ll want to hug
In case you needed more reasons to love K-Pop, this beauty update might just make you fall head over heels. Korean beauty and skincare brand Innisfree has come out with a limited edition BT21 Collection! The collection features the brand’s newest mask, the Pore Clearing Clay Mousse Mask 2X with Super Volcanic Clusters ($21) but in super cute packaging featuring characters from the Line Friends Creators Project. The mask will be part of Innisfree’s permanent collection but the adorable packaging design will only be available while supplies last! So if you’re looking for a new mask to try and appreciate cuddly characters on your skincare shelf, this is a must try! We’re hoping they’ll ship a couple of these to the PH soon!

It’s all down-Hill from here
Somebody is MIA! Following the fiasco that was her much-awaited, highly anticipated lipstick launch, it seems like YouTube beauty guru Jaclyn Hill has disappeared from all forms of social media! This move comes shortly after her brand, Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics, promised to notify every single customer about a full refund - regardless if their lipsticks had any fuzz, hair, or bubbles. The company has also promised to refund shipping costs as well.
Strangely though, Jaclyn’s Instagram and Twitter accounts appear to have suddenly been deactivated. Her YouTube channel is still running, with her last post being a video on her lipsticks and the complaints she received. So where’d she go? Should we form a search party? Why do you think she’s gone MIA?

Formulated with weightless SPF protection and zero residue, this face mist is perfect for keeping your makeup in check, your face refreshed, and your skin protected from UV rays!
