The New Kylie Cosmetics Shades Are Too Little, Too Late

Look, I’m all for inclusivity. But when the news broke Wednesday that Kylie Cosmetics was releasing a new line of “Skin Concealers” that includes several brown shades, I rolled my eyes. Hard. The move didn’t come across as a genuine effort to serve women of color, but a ploy to capitalize on what some makeup blogs have dubbed “the Fenty effect.”

The term, of course, refers to the unprecedented success of Rihanna’s beauty line, which dropped this fall and included foundation shades in 40 colors. Fenty made Time magazine’s list of the 25 best inventions of 2017 for offering shades to a wide range of women. Damn near everyone can shop the brand — from people with albinism to those with the deepest sable skin.

Fenty has sparked an important conversation about diversity in the beauty industry, but the discussion isn’t new. It’s been ongoing for decades. Viola Desmond, known as the Canadian Rosa Parks for refusing to leave the whites-only part of a Nova Scotia theater, was a beauty entrepreneur. Back in the 1940s, (that’s right — the ’40s) Desmond sold makeup powders designed to “enhance dark complexions.” The dearth of beauty products for black women motivated Desmond, who’d studied under legend Madame C.J. Walker, to develop and sell her own. It guts me to think about how long the struggle for black women to find suitable makeup spans.

I mention Desmond to show that even Rihanna is not a pioneer when it comes to makeup for women of color. Lines from Fashion Fair, IMAN, Shiseido, MAC, and others predate the singer’s effort by decades, but her brand stands out for spawning various social media hashtags, news stories about the darkest shades selling out, and an outpouring of mostly brown and black women into Sephora to try Fenty for themselves. I was one of them, and I’m not the type who usually flocks to stores for product drops.

Deal of the Day

Well-made activewear doesn’t come cheap, which makes Bandier’s first-ever flash sale on 12 of its most popular pieces pretty much a must-shop for those who live in the gym or studio (or anyone who just like athleisure a lot). You’ll find pieces like Koral Moto Leggings for $49 (from $145), APL cashmere-blend sneakers in pale pink for $109 (from $250), and the Kule x Bandier Gabby sports bra for $39 (from $85) in the mix. These prices are only available until 8 p.m. EST tonight — and once something’s sold out, it’s gone.

In the World of Cyndi Lauper, ‘Leopard Is a Lifestyle’
Cyndi Lauper

Pop icon Cyndi Lauper has never been shy about letting her true colors shine through — and for the foreseeable future, at least, that color is pink.

The star famous for her ever-changing, candy-colored hair has stuck with her current rosy shade for the past three years, and for good reason: “I was going to change it, but when I saw all the pink hats at the Women’s March, I decided that I’d keep it out of solidarity,” she says. As for those who insist that the pale hue belongs to millennials now? “I don’t care what people say!” she laughs. “I only care about what they do and what they think.” (Never mind the fact that Lauper was doing pastel hair long before twentysomethings called it cool.)

Now, Lauper is bringing her signature style to HSN with a collection of clothing and accessories called — wait for it — Touch of Cyn. And despite her family ties to the fashion industry (Lauper’s grandfather was a pattern maker, her grandmother and mother were both avid sewers, and the singer herself once attended design school), she insists her line is for the “invisible women” who are “cut out of couture,” particularly, those middle-aged shoppers who grew up in the era of rock ‘n’ roll and appreciate fashion, but feel frustrated by the fit and cost of typical designer clothing.

“People are gonna go, ‘Wow — what is that and where can I get it?!’” >>>
