The pop star has kept plenty busy this year, but he’s showing no signs of slowing down. In between travelling the world for his Love on Tour extravaganza and dipping his toes into the world of cinema, the star has managed to find the time to expand his cult-favourite beauty brand, Pleasing. Indeed, what began as a nail varnish brand and soon expanded into a full-blown range of skincare, makeup and body care is now set to include a three-piece fragrance range in its mix. The Eau de Parfum collection consists of three scents, each inspired by time, place and memory and named Closeness, Rivulets, and Bright, Hot respectively.

Available on the Pleasing website and in-store in New York City (61 Crosby Street) and Los Angeles (1108 Abbot Kinney Blvd) and at Selfridges.

At this point, you’re either into it or over it, but another celebrity beauty brand has entered the chat. If a recent trademark filing for “The Shelbourne Collective” is anything to go by, we should be expecting a cosmetics brand from the megastar. Based on the trademark, the brand will be predominantly focused on makeup products, but the possibility for an expansion into skincare and body care products like creams, lotions, lip balms, and the like is on the table! 

Stay tuned for more updates.
