Jennifer Lopez’s Decision To Avoid Creating Foundation For Her New Makeup Line Has Everything To Do With Inclusivity

Anyone who has ever had the honor of witnessing a Jennifer Lopez performance knows that she is a perfectionist who never wants to let her fans down. From her moves on stage to her screen presence and vocals on tracks, the puertorriqueña puts 100 percent into her work 100 percent of the time, all to ensure that her fans have a good time. It’s an admirable work ethic and trait that will be put on full display when the singer-actress’s new makeup collaboration with Inglot drops on Thursday, April 26.

Lopez’s soon-to-be-launched makeup line comes this Thursday, and it is the real deal.

The 70-piece collection is expected to include a suite of nude glosses, eyeshadows, blushes, powders, bronzers and highlighters that will help people of all colors recreate Lopez’s iconic look, known as the J.Lo Glow. One of the most anticipated products in the set is a customizable magnetic palette that will allow makeup enthusiasts to keep only their favorite shades.

Still, despite the loaded and versatile options, Lopez’s new line is missing one pretty big cosmetics bag essential: foundation.

Lopez recently explained that she opted out of including a foundation in her line to ensure inclusivity.

Speaking with Allure about her decision to exclude foundation from her line the first time around, Lopez explained that it stemmed from her desire to ensure that her customers only get the best. “I’d rather take it slow, do it right, and let people know that they can count on me that when I put something out I’m not just putting my name on it,” Lopez shared. “I want the product to stand for that.”

The megastar further explained her desire to create foundations worthy enough for each of her fans and the many different shades they come in. While her foundation line remains in production, anticipators can rest easy that the singer already has their backs covered when it comes to their lips. Her approach of ensuring accuracy and representation in her foundations is the same one she has used to create the selection of nude lipsticks and glosses in the new line. “I don’t think there’s one shade of nude,” Lopez told the publication. “I think there’s a different shade of nude for everybody that really makes you look beautiful.”

As you can probably imagine, fans are freaking out about the new line on Twitter.

Myself? I will probably be sick on the launch day unable to come to work and definitely not waiting in bed ready to put in my online order. ?

Literally, everyone is super hyped and ready for ANOTHER one of J.Lo’s gifts.

Because let us not forget, Lopez is a queen who paved the way for other women to have similar moments.

Even Cardi B cannot handle the pure glow that this line is gifting us.

Thank you @jlo ❤️❤️❤️

There’s a new American Dream on deck, kids, and it ain’t a home with a white picket fence; it’s a makeup line gifted to you personally by Jenny. Okurrr.

Seriously, though, I wonder what kind of a loan I can get on this investment…

‘Cause this girl’s about to spend some Benjamins on this ish.

Cardi B To Make Feature Film Debut In Stripper Scam Movie ‘Hustlers’ Alongside J. Lo


Cardi B To Make Feature Film Debut In Stripper Scam Movie ‘Hustlers’ Alongside J. Lo

Cardi B has dominated the music charts with bangers that allude to her past life as a New York City stripper, and now the hip-hip star is ready to take over the big screen as a scammin’ dancer in the film “Hustlers.”

Deadline reports that the movie, set in New York during the 2008 financial crisis, is a tale of strippers who join together to swindle their Wall Street clients. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (The Meddler), “Hustlers” is based on a 2015 article by Jessica Pressler for New York Magazine titled “The Hustlers at Scores.”

The film will also star Jennifer Lopez, who Cardi worked with in 2018 on the hit “Dinero,” as well as Constance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Lili Reinhart (Riverdale), Keke Palmer (Scream Queens), Julia Stiles (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl (“The Fisher King”).

Lopez is also producing the movie alongside STXfilms, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina, who collaborated previously on the 2018 rom-com “Second Act.”

While “Hustlers” will mark Cardi’s first major acting role, she isn’t new to the screen. The Bronx rapper appeared as herself on Love and Hip Hop: New York for two seasons, before her explosive music career, and made a guest appearance on Gabrielle Union’s BET series Being Mary Jane in 2017.

Shooting for the film will begin on March 22, 2019, and we’re all excited to see our fave Dominican-Trinidadian on the big screen.

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.

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.
