@vn2790 is a fan of Glossier’s Milk Jelly Cleanser. This face wash does not require much water to get your day’s full of makeup off your skin. Simply massage and watch your makeup melt off.

Micellar Water: Any Brand

Micellar water is becoming the new “it” way to take off your makeup. The gentle oils promise to lift everything off your face. @moon__stars__sun calls it her “holy grail” product.

Raw Skin Co.: African Black Soap

Life-changing products don’t come around often, but @alyssamariemendez claims that that’s what this little bar did for her. She loves this soap because it’s natural and organic. If you need another reason to try this magical bar, read the caption above.

@conrazondmelon didn’t specify why she loves this bar so much, but according to the brand’s Instagram account, this can help tame eczema and psoriasis flare-ups. Sounds pretty amazing.

Coola: Makeup Setting Spray SPF 30

You’ve probably heard your entire life how important it is to protect your skin from the sun. You’ve also probably heard about a million different sunscreen brands. @lucyfloresnv is obsessed Coola’s SPF that come in an array of fancy scents. She also swears by Coola’s organic makeup Makeup Setting Spray that says to keep your morning makeup intact throughout the night. Bonus: this setting spray has an SPF 30!

Sunday Riley: Luna Sleeping Night Oil

@adriaticcsea mentioned that she loves this night oil by Sunday Riley. This night serum contains retinol that works to smooth out and brighten your skin. Some people have experienced chapped skin when they apply retinol. Sunday Riley’s oil vows to do the opposite and hydrate your skin so you wake up with a bouncy epidermis.

Aztec Secret: Indian Healing Clay

We knew this mask was a favorite for smoothing out skin, but @scattered_omens uses it for eeeeverything. She has seen good results on acne, burns, chub rubs and even uses it as a deodorant. Who knew?!

Brujita Skin Care: Vegan Crema

Yay for Latina beauty brands! And a double shoutout for brands that are cruelty-free. @vanesz32._ fully supports Brujita Skincare’s vegan moisturizer which is made with Bulgarian rose wax, cocoa butter, rose hydrosol (rose water) and grapeseed oil. Basically all good stuff that is meant to hydrate and fight breakouts — everything we need this summer.

Drunk Elephant: Protini Polypeptide Cream

People on Instagram seem to have nothing bad to say about this cream (just read above). But @allieofthevallie put it bluntly on our post, “so freakin moisturizing,” so we’ll take her word for it.

Summer Fridays: Jet Lag Mask

If you’re looking for a good sheet mask, @mayrarosas30 says Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask is it. Some of the biggest influencers (yes, of color) swear by it as well. All you need is 10 minutes and this should work its magic.

Tatcha: Luminous Dewy Skin Mist

We mostly think of mists and sprays as something you throw on after your makeup, but Tatcha’s mist — as recommended by @h0neybaked — can go on before you apply your makeup to work as a primer.

Thayers Natural: Witch Hazel Mist

Rose and hazel products are new favorites in the beauty community. With Thayers Natural, you can get both in one bottle. They offer three Witch Hazel mists that come in lavender, rose petal and cucumber to refresh your skin when needed. Thanks for the heads up, @opskarwoski!

Too Faced: Better Than Sex Mascara

Because of its ability to add an insane amount of volume to lashes, this mascara has been a top-seller at Sephora. The high sales are in part thanks to @julie_mariana7 since this is one of the items she can’t live without.

Burt’s Bees: Tinted Lip Balm

When lipstick seems like too much of a commitment, tinted lip balm is the perfect backup. Tinted lip blams provide just a hint of color and are more forgiving than lipstick when the color starts to fade. Plus, it’s one of @j.e.a.n.m.u‘s must-haves.

Red Lipstick

We had an overwhelming number of mujeres tell us that they cannot live without a bold red lipstick.

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

Cheyenne Vaughan / Facebook

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.

@thekatvond / Instagram

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


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.
