ColourPop Cosmetics Gave A Latina Cancer Patient Her Own Makeup Line

Beauty blogger favorite, ColourPop Cosmetics is well known amongst its dedicated batch of followers for its vibrant colors and creative collaborations. The brand, which launched in 2014, also quickly amassed a loyal fanbase because of its wallet-friendly and nonanimal tested products. Today beauty brand boasts a 6.3 million following on Instagram and its products can be found on the shelves of major box stores like Sephora and Ulta. Blowing us away even further, when it comes to the success, is the makeup’s newest partnership with Make A Wish Foundation designed to grant  Delilah Juarez, a childhood cancer patient’s wish.

Delilah Juarez is a 17-year-old cancer patient who inspired a partnership with ColourPop Cosmetics.

After being diagnosed with osteosarcoma— a form of malignant bone cancer— Juarez began to take comfort in applying her own makeup during her cancer treatments. It was a type of escape from her illness that inspired a vision to craft a makeup line that would benefit other cancer patients. Juarez’s hope was that other patients could find an outlet through makeup, a product which can be therapeutic, empowering, and effective in building a person’s self-esteem and morale.

In an effort to bring Juarez’s ambitions to life,  the Nevada chapter of the Make A Wish Foundation contacted the California cosmetics company and inspired the experts at ColourPop to help guide Juarez in developing her own line.

On October 11th Colourpop launched Delilah X ColourPop Collection, a line that made sure to involve Juarez in every aspect of the collaboration.

Inspired by her journey with cancer, the line features names like ‘Cherish,’ ‘Warrior’ and ‘Strength.’ The collection also features some of Juarez’s favorite colors. Navy blue, gold, and versital neutrals make up the Delilah X ColourPop collection color scheme. 

The moving collaboration hasn’t just affected Juarez, who finished her cancer treatments in July, though. With 20% of its sales going to the Make A Wish Foundation, the collaboration will raise money to fulfill even more cancer patients.

This collection has the potential to impact a lot of lives. Each year, over 27,000 children are diagnosed with a condition that qualifies them for wish fulfillment. While the Make A Wish Foundation tries to cover as many as possible, it can only grant about 15,000 wishes annually.

Clearly, with it benefiting a great cause, you can spoil yourself with beautiful makeup and feel good about your purchase. The Delilah X Colourpop Collection is available now through January 11, 2019.

People Are Accusing Kat Von D Beauty of Scamming Customers With Their Famous Tattoo Liners

People Are Accusing Kat Von D Beauty of Scamming Customers With Their Famous Tattoo Liners

Yes, we know. Makeup maven Kat Von D has been long been on the outs with fans who once adored her. In addition to the slew of offenses stacked up against her, Von D’s recent declaration that she would not be vaccinating her son after his birth certainly has not done her any favors.

Now, the tattoo artists’ latest controversy means she’s enduring another fall from her fans’ graces.

Beauty enthusiasts are currently accusing Von D of scamming them out of their money with the Trooper Tattoo Liner

At the end of last month, Facebook user Cheyenne Vaughan accused Von D’s makeup brand of “putting a sample-size eyeliner into a longer-shell tube,” and then selling it to customers for “triple the price.”

Vaughan shared a photo of the eyeliner in her post that showed the dismantled product in three pieces. One was a long tube, the other a cartridge that holds the actual product, and the last piece: a cap.

“Yall I’m about to lose my mind right now,” Vaughan wrote in the post. “Kat von D really been putting a sample size eyeliner into a longer shell tube and selling to my dumb ass for triple the price. I’M ABOUT TO LOSE MY MIND RIGHT NOW.”

Facebook users who saw the post were quick to respond to Vaughan.

“That’s what you get for supporting an anti-vaxer,” wrote on user.

Others came to Von D’s defense, asking Vaughan to support her claims with actual facts.

“Did you actually make sure this is factual, by weighing the amount of liquid in each one? I didn’t think so. Wtf is wrong with people??”

And of course, many didn’t waste time in bringing up the fact that Von D is anti-vaccinations.

“Y’all need to stop supporting the anti-Vaxer,” one wrote.

“That’s what you get for supporting an anti-vaxer,” replied another.

Six thousand shares of the post later, and Von D responded with her defense.

In a post to her Instagram account, Von D asserted that she wasn’t cheating customers. In fact, according to her, while the cartridge is the same size for every liner, the amount of ink inside of it differs depending on the liner size.

“The cartridges in both full size liners and mini liners are the same — it’s the amount of product inside each cartridge that is different. So, for example, the product fill on our full size Tattoo Liner is 0.55 ml, while the product fill for the mini is 0.2 ml – thats over DOUBLE the amount of product! Any brand who has an eyeliner with similar component on the market will tell you the same thing. You need that much cartridge space for the pigment to flow out,” she wrote.

See for yourself in the comments section of Von D’s post on whether or commenters are satisfied. Hint: people remain stanning their anti-Vanti-ant-vaxx position.

Selena Quintanilla’s Family Is Creating A Makeup Line In Celebration Of The Tejana Queen

This just in: the late Selena Quintanilla is getting her very own makeup line. I know what you’re thinking: hasn’t this been done before? But no, actually, it hasn’t. While big brands have had Selena-inspired collections, this will be the first full line, and it’s coming straight from the Quintanilla family.

According to The Blast, the queen of Tejano music’s family is launching “Selena Vive,” a full cosmetics line that will include lipsticks, eye makeup, foundations, nail polish, perfume and accessories.

The late singer’s dad, Abraham Quintanilla, is also preparing to trademark the name “Selenaville,” what fans have nicknamed the museum dedicated to the star in Corpus, Christi, Texas, for a possible other cosmetics line.

While a release date hasn’t been set yet for either line, fans are already celebrating.

In 2016, MAC released its Selena collection, which sold out promptly. A year later, Forever 21 similarly starting selling Selena merch.

News of the late singer’s official line comes after Netflix announced they would be working with the Quintanilla family to produce a series on Selena’s life.
