The Haus always wins

It’s finally here!!! After much speculation, Lady Gaga’s beauty brand Haus Laboratories (formerly trademarked as Haus Beauty) is set to drop in September of this year. Based on the teaser videos and social media posts, we’re guessing there are going to be tons of shimmer, glitter, and crazy bold lip colors. The Poker Face singer also launched an official YouTube page for the makeup line that has fans freaking out with excitement. Could there be tutorials? Reviews? Celebrity guestings and GRWM videos? Who knows! All we know is that pre-orders start on July 15, and we can’t wait to see what Mama Monster has for us. September needs to come ASAP!

Stanning this gloss

Sticking with what they do best, Glossier continues to bring out the best in the “no makeup makeup” category by amping up an OG product and making it pop! Their classic Clear Lip Gloss ($14) is now available in two new shades - Holographic (opalescent shimmer) and Red (sheer cherry tint), and oh my goodness do they look heavenly! Infused with vitamin E, these glosses are super shiny, non-sticky, non-gritty, and glide on seamlessly thanks to the fuzzy doe-foot applicator. And the best part? Michelle Obama is fan.
