Blend it like BECCA

Last week we shared about the restock of the famous Too Faced Unicorn lippie, and now it looks like all things fantasy are becoming a hit this 2017. BECCA has just teased their latest primer, and it comes in a whimsical purple shade! The BECCA First Lighting Primer Filter follows in the footsteps of the cult-fave Backlighting Primer, and created a glowy and radiant finish. It’s just the thing to hide all the stress and fatigue we all inevitably encounter, and being BECCA, they took the formulation a further by adding some energizing and anti-inflammatory ginger to the mix.

Ain’t Got No Scrubs

If you’re a fan of this iconic tube from St. Ives, you may want to consider making a product switch. A lawsuit has been filed against the brand for their Apricot Scrub by users who claim that the product usage has damaged their skin, and they’ve got dermatologists backing up their claims. The physical exfoliant contains crushed walnut shells, which are supposedly much too harsh to use on skin and cause micro tears that can become infected. The subreddit /r/SkincareAddiction is full of users who have shared their similarly horrifying experiences with the product. We’re definitely sticking to our favorite gommage exfoliant, thanks.

An Origin(al)s Resolution

While scrolling through our Instagram feeds, we spotted a post that made our hearts beat a little faster. Origins Philippines shared the intriguing image above and we can’t help but speculate on the brand’s new year resolution to “see what all the sheet mask hype is about.” Could this mean they’re coming out with sheet masks?! We’re already envisioning a line of moisturizing, vitamin-enriched sheet masks to add to their awesome collection but no details yet for now. Don’t worry--we’ll be keeping a close eye for more clues!

And that wraps up our beauty news for the week! Which one are your most excited about?
