Beauty Roundup: More Disney-inspired makeup, more of Michelle Phan, and a vaccine against pimples!
Are you enjoying some well-deserved R&R this weekend? Whether you’re enjoying an out-of-town getaway or a staycation with the fam, don’t miss out on this week’s beauty news! We were thrilled to find an exciting new update on the OG online beauty guru, and plan to stock up on some of our favorite beauty tools. Disney fever is still on a high with even more makeup collabs, and we’re thanking science for potentially coming up with a vaccine against every beauty girl’s nightmare!
EM my gosh!
First she talked about her Infinite Lip Clouds (super comfortable and long-lasting crème lippies), and now Michelle Phan is back with another addition to EM Cosmetics. Launching on April 17, the Illustrative Liquid Eyeliners ($15) are already creating major beauty buzz, thanks to a Facebook Live video of Michelle doing a live swatch. We’re honestly bowled over how pigmented and easy to use her liquid liners are!
The Illustrative Liners will have two versions: a felt tip liner and a brush tip liner. The brush tip is perfect for freehanding your wing, whether you want a feathery line or a super slick and thin flick. The felt tip is stiffer and best-suited for sharper and darker lines. Inspired by art and calligraphy pens, these liquid liners are here to change the cat eye game. Waterproof and smudgeproof, we expect that these will go out of stock fairly quickly when they go up on sale at the EM Cosmetics site.
A summer fling to last all year long
Say goodbye to thick and cakey face bases! The cult fave beauty sponge will be releasing a limited edition Summer Fling Collection that includes two new Beautyblender sponge colors - neon green and bright orange. A set of 3 sponges would normally set you back $60 but because of this special promo, the summer collection is just $49! Save yourself from slapping on too much product in this hot weather, and pick up this trio from Sephora and beautyblender sites starting April 12.

Sho(t)cking new development!
Could this be the miracle solution we’ve all been waiting for? Researchers from the University of California have created a new vaccine that will eliminate acne once and for all! The vaccine, which is in its early stages of development, aims to block acne-causing effects without killing off the bacteria itself. The shot will target the protein that excretes the acne onto the skin, causing inflammation. It’s designed to not kill the bacteria completely because research has shown that the bacteria is actually good for the body; its the proteins in it that cause acne to surface on the skin. The vaccine has been tested on skin biopsies of acne patients with positive results, and the team will begin human testing soon.

Dolled up with Disney
Makeup collaborations are always a good thing, especially earn they come out as cute as these! It’s not The Face Shop’s first time to feature Disney but the new collection is certainly the most massive one yet! Every character gets to have their own beauty product: from Donald Duck’s Concealer Multi-Palette (how cute and convenient is this?) to Disney Princess Sheet masks, the brand is offering everything from bronzers to eye shadow palettes, lippies and blushes. The teasers on their Instagram seem to show a Princess Ariel green cushion corrector, Mickey Mouse lip and cheek tints, various character eye masks, and even shadow sticks! You can already shop the collection on Amazon before it hits stores.

The latest lippie trend
Liquid lipsticks have become such a staple in our kikay kits. From ultra mattes to sexy satin finishes, we all have at least one liquid lippie that we’ve used and loved. Well, the latest trend in the beauty world takes these pigmented tubes to a whole new color-correcting level! YouTuber Amy’s Makeup Box posted a video using Huda Kattan’s liquid lippie in Cheerleader ($20) as an undereye corrector, and it proved to be a genius idea. We’ve tried this hack before to satisfactory results but used the traditional cream formula. Using a liquid lipstick should make it long-wearing.
The hack is so good that Hudda herself reposted it on her Instagram. Talk about a multi purpose product! Would you give this hack a go?
