If there's such a thing as makeup envy, we're feeling the height of it right now. From shimmering eyeshadows to cult-classic concealers, it's hard not to fantasize about clicking those glorious three letter words: "add to cart." We think it's necessary to save some vanity space, because this week’s beauty news is too good to pass up. 

Kylie Jenner unveiled her new birthday edition makeup collection

Kylie Jenner took to Snapchat her newest #SummerSurprise, revealing what’s inside that little black bag she had been teasing on Snapchat all week. Branded with Kylie’s famous pout, the Kylie Cosmetics makeup bag is enough to sell us on the launch already. But, of course, inside the bag holds glorious additions that scream glamour: a Kyliner kit with pencil liner, gel liner, and a brush, matte lipsticks, lipgloss, and créme eye shadows. The best part? All of the glimmering products are infused with real gold. How very Kardhasian-esque, right? 

The Birthday Edition Collection hits KylieCosmetics.com today 3 p.m. PST, and will only be available until August 10. The pricing, however, has yet to be revealed.

Max Factor is back in the U.S.!

Allow us to give you a little history lesson: Max Factor was the leading Hollywood makeup artist who actually coined the phrase "make-up" and even started the very first foundation formula called Pan-Cake. From foundation to mascara, eye shadow to lip gloss – Max Factor formed the bridge of old Hollywood makeup to the rest of the world. He essentially made it possible for everyday women outside of the film industry to get a chance to play with makeup as well.

Then, in 2006, the brand was pulled off the shelves in the U.S. Flashforward to 10 years later, and Max Factor is returning to the States with a limited selection of products: a liner, mascara, and two lipsticks.

With tons of fans demanding the brand to return to the U.S., the Max Factor team decided it was time to bring back a limited-edition collection.

MAC Cosmetic’s Star Trek collection is out of this world


The shimmery 25 piece collection is designed to honor the women in Star Trek for its 50th small-screen debut anniversary. The set includes lipsticks, eyeshadows, and nail polishes–all of which twinkle like the milky way.
