Much like the dating scene these days, there’s now an app from beauty power house Urban Decay that matches you to your most compatible lipstick color. Let’s break it down: the app lets you virtually try on 100 shades of lipstick on your uploaed selfie. Then, you can try on lipsticks and swipe left to the ones that aren’t right for you. You can save the ones you like and share immediately to your friends for a second opinion. It’s like virtually going to the makeup counter with your best shopping companion!
Jelly shower washes are happening.
We’ve got a little extra wiggle in our walk this morning, thanks to all the #showerjelly love we’ve been getting! We load our shower jellies with carrageenan extract to protect and nourish your skin, and it has the bonus effect of making them jiggly! With other refreshing ingredients like lemon, pine, cedar, and cinnamon, these wobbly cleansers will leave you ready to pump up the jam... or is it jelly?
Jell-O meets body wash–that's what's stirring up in the Lush factories! The company is taking an unconventional approach to shower washes. The new collection of jiggly jellies are filled with carrageenan extract to protect and nourish your skin. They're soothing, cooling, and can be used in your hair to add extra shine.
