It’s March. I’ve moved highlights to later in the month, as one does, I hope that feels okay! My treatment program ended at the start of the month, and I’m feeling a little weird about it.

Adwoa Aboa’s Revlon collab is so cute and cheery-looking, and there’s a really nostalgic vibe with the bright, colour-coded kits.

Colour liners are really having a moment, and this Japanese brand is right on the money with their range. So glad that they’re doing an international launch! (Weird side note – on the asian blogs I’ve seen, the product is called UZU, not UZ – why the name change?)

Lupita Nyong’o has been doing some really avant garde beauty looks on her Us press tour – I’d describe it as 1930s Grace Jones makeup.

According to Vogue, Gibson Girl-esque hairstyles are happening. I’m excited. I love that shit. I don’t love that these are referred to as “Victorian”, though. They’re Edwardian. Thank you.

LUSH talks about their recycled packaging and the issues associated with sticking to recycled materials.

Paul & Joe is big in Japan, so it makes sense that they’re doing a Doraemon collab. Ordinarily I’d talk shit about something like this but I really like Doraemon.

Here’s a look at this year’s fall/winter beauty looks.

The tiniest bag by Jacquemus, via The Cut.

The tiny Jacquemus handbag that went viral is a dream. I want a cluster of them, like a bunch of grapes. In each, a single activated almond.

The rise and fall of Julep.

Bio-engineered silk’s applications are many, and include beauty products!

This piece on social media psychics is… a lot.

Many beauty brands and retailers are utilizing augmented reality for digital makeovers.

And on the topic of beauty tech, here’s how that data is used against you.

Spinning off of that: on the mask in fashion and beauty, and what they say about the surveillance state.

Real women, schmeal women.

These beauty looks from Rick Owens’ FW19 show are FA BU LOUS.

Cult Beauty did a very special campaign for Women’s Day, and I’m glad to see more people than me are ambivalent about it.
