Beauty buzz: Fenty Skin is on the way, Clarisonic is going out of business and more

This week’s headlines run the gamut from brand launches (Fenty Skin is coming soon and we are here for it) to brand closures (RIP Clarisonic) and the latest in celebrity hair and makeup. Ahead, glean all the beauty news from this eventful week:

This week in hair

Kate Middleton’s summer hair is goals

The latest snap shared on the official Kensington Royal Instagram feed depicts a glowing the Duchess of Cambridge with a fresh new ‘do. The lighter highlights (and that Farah Fawcett-inspired blowout) compliment her tanned skin well—a welcome switch-up in her beauty roster.

This week in makeup

Rihanna’s latest beauty endeavour is Fenty Skin

Roll up, roll up! Rihanna’s Fenty franchise is expanding, and the next step is non-binary skincare. That’s right, this line is for guys, gals and everyone in between. The official drop date is 31 July, with three products from the lineup revealed just this week: the Total Cleanser, Fat Water Toner, and Day Cream with SPF. There is no doubt that this is one of the most highly anticipated celebrity brand launches of the year—looks like we’re all one step closer to actual Fenty face.

Amandla Stenberg proves that more is more can be pulled off if you do it right. Big, long spidery lashes have never looked better—especially when paired with a flawless base, a nude-pink lip and some bleached brows. Not to mention, her textured, blonde box braids juxtaposed with the masculine suit and glam makeup makes this whole look.

Pat McGrath Labs releases a new mascara

Mother McGrath is back with another killer formula—the Dark Star mascara is touted to be big on pigment, volume and length. The release has been long-anticipated, underscored by the incredible multi-part campaign directed by critically-acclaimed fashion photographer Steven Meisel.

It seems like mascaras are à la mode right now, with this being one of many launched in recent memory (here, Marc Jacobs Beauty‘s At Lash’d mascara comes to mind). Granted, we’re not complaining—anything that gives us longer, fuller lashes is welcomed in our books.
