Maybelline, known for their cosmetics, has a new brand ambassador who plans on changing the world.
Herieth Paul was born in Tanzania and moved to Canada with her mother when she was just 11 years old. She was spotted by modeling scouts at just 16 years old and have worked with large companies and brands throughout the world. She recently has been chosen to be the global ambassador for Maybelline.
According to Associate Editor of the Huffington Post, Krithika Varagur says, “It’s still rare to see women of color represented in the beauty world, both in campaigns and for products themselves, So Paul’s appointment is a welcome addition to the Maybelline lineup.”
In an interview with Huffington Post, the model says, “True change must start from within each of us. We must look outside ourselves and recognize that the world is made up of people of all different colors. Fashion is a reflection of the times we live in. Today fashion is a global business, runway shows are live-streamed all over the globe as they happen. With “see now/shop now,” smart designers will recognize the need to represent the times we live in on fashion runways and campaigns. Social media was the spark that initiated the discussion. More importantly we must continue to speak about it!”
Kylie Jenner, 18, is releasing a new lip-kit duo for those who wish to achieve the perfect “Kylie-Lip.”
American reality and television personality released her lip-kits in late 2015 and the hype has carried over into 2016. The lip-kit consists of a lip liner and a long-lasting liquid lipstick. Kylie has released in total of six shades thus far. According to her website, the names of the shades are KoKo K, MaryJo K, Posie K, Candy K, True Brown K, and Dolce K. All of the lip-kit duos cost $29.
MaryJo K (named after Kylie’s grandmother) is apart of her most recent lip-kit release. Sefy Paulose, a student at Drexel University says, “Mary Jo is amazing. It doesn’t come off! I had it on for 12 hours one day and even in the cold, while I was eating/drinking, it didn’t come off. I had to take it off with a makeup wide and rub it off.” Paulose also feels that the lipstick will work on all skin tones and that the color is amazing. She owns the lip-kits in several other colors as well.
Once the kits are released online, they are sold out in a matter of minutes. According to an article on Glamour, there is no exact date on when the release of her new lip-kits will be released. According to her personal Instagram, the only thing that is to be noted is that they will be released “soon” and that the release is “less than a week away.” She will be releasing new packages of her original sold-out shades, in addition to a new shade that has been released on Kylie’s Instagram page. However, she has not released the name of this new shade.
According to her website, all products are not tested on animals and are vegan (except for Candy K). The inspiration for this line of make-up comes from Kylie’s love of cosmetics (and phenomenon surrounding her lips!).
Politics Becomes A Fashion Statement
Hilary Clinton, a representative for the democratic party, releases limited edition and unisex campaign t-shirts from well-known designers Marc Jacobs, Public School and Tory Burch.
This collection of high quality t-shirts is apart of the “Made in History Collection.” Many other politicians have released campaign related merchandise, such as buttons and other fan paraphernalia. However, Hilary is attempting to win this game by working with fashion designers to create a line that reaches to the younger crowd of supporters. “The Made for History collection is a unique addition to our campaign store and will give our supporters an extraordinary new way to show their enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton and support her campaign for President,” said Clinton’s deputy communications director, Kristina Schake.
The Marc Jacobs t-shirt is designed with Hilary Clinton’s face in patriotic, holographic colors and the year “2016” printed underneath. The shirt created by Public School says, “Make Herstory,” indicating that is in the power of the American people to make history by voting for Hilary Clinton to be the first woman president. The Tory Burch t-shirt is designed with a quote and says “Women’s Rights Are Human Rights….,” in rainbow font.
The t-shirts will set you back about $45.00 and could be found on Hilary Clinton’s website. Do you like the designs?
