Beauty buzz: Colourpop launches new Mulan-inspired collection, Selena Gomez brings back ‘The Rachel’ and more

1. ColourPop releases a Mulan-inspired collection

The new Disney live-action reboot for Mulan is soon to hit theatres, and ColourPop Cosmetics is celebrating with 10 new products, including a bright red, matte liquid lipstick, a gold shimmery lip gloss, a terracotta powder blush and more. The collection is due to be launched on March 19, but we’re just hoping that it will actually be available to ship outside of the US—and that it wouldn’t be sold out within minutes like the recent Sailor Moon lineup.

2. Selena Gomez brings back ‘The Rachel’

The hairstyle that shaped several generations of women has been brought back in full force by none other than Selena Gomez, who sported the look on The Kelly Clarkson show. There is no better description for the look than that of Selena’s hairstylist, Marissa Marino, who described the hair inspo as “‘The Rachel’ meets Goldie Hawn in First Wives Club“.

3. Vanessa Hudgens sports a dandelion-yellow nail for spring

Baby-V has posted an alarming number of selfies sporting her claws, and she isn’t the only one obsessed with this look—we think it’s the perfect welcome to the fresh spring months ahead. The nails were done courtesy of celebrity nail artist Thuy Nguyen, who has other familiar names in her clientele including Lucy Hale and Joey King. Would you wear your digits in this traffic-stopping shade?

4. Kylie Jenner is the world’s most exclusive makeup artist

She may be a billionaire who never leaves the house without getting her makeup done professionally, but Kylie Jenner is proving that she’s got some serious makeup chops. The beauty mogul used her sister Kendall Jenner as a test subject for a few new Kylie Cosmetics products on a new episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The result? The work of a pro.

5. Ariel Winter is a real-life Ariel with her new vivid tresses

The Modern Family star is giving us major Little Mermaid vibes with her new hair (convenient that she’s called Ariel, eh?). The star went back to her natural roots (yes, she’s a redhead) and got her hair done at Nine Zero One Salon in the heart of Los Angeles, USA. It’s a welcome change!

6. Fenty Beauty launches Cheeks Out collection

Just when we thought RiRi couldn’t possibly outdo herself, we catch wind that Fenty Beauty is expanding their range of products once again. The Cheeks Out collection is a range of vibrant cream bushes and golden brown bronzers, that are creamy, sheer and buildable. Watch this space for updates on this lineup’s availability in Malaysia.

7. Benefit Cosmetics launches an all-in-one brow palette

Elevate your brows with the newest from Benefit Cosmetics. We experienced the Brow Zings Pro Palette firsthand earlier this week—and found that it’s definitely perfect for brow beginners and pros alike. The palette comes with four long-wearing powders to fill and shade the brows, as well as three waxes to sculpt those pesky hairs! It’s available now in Sephora and comes in two shades: light-medium and medium-deep.
