This Week’s Need-to-Know Beauty News
This is what had people talking.
Jaclyn Hill is relaunching her namesake makeup line
Beauty influencer Jaclyn Hill announced this week that she is relaunching her namesake makeup line. Her holiday collection “Catch the Light” will be available for purchase on November 26, and includes three brushes, a luminous powder plus several highlighters. Earlier this week, Hill posted the reveal on Instagram captioned, “The future is bright.” This is coming after her original (and controversial) Jaclyn Cosmetics launch in May where she released a collection of 20 nude lipsticks, some of which had a lumpy formula and contained hair-like fibres. But rest assured—this time Hill is using a different laboratory than she did for her first round of beauty wares. She told WWD that “The first launch sucked, but everybody deserves a second chance … I’m gonna keep going and proving myself.”

Time to play ball, babes 🏀 We teamed up with the Toronto @raptors to bring you Full Force Plumping Lipstick in BALLER, now in an exclusive never-before-seen package. This creamy, full coverage shade is THE ultimate Raptors Red 💄 Shop this game-changing lipstick on 11.15 @shoppersdrugmartofficial! #RaptorsFullForce #GoFullForce
Beauty company BUXOM is celebrating We The North culture with the release of Full Force Plumping Lipstick in the colour “baller.” Made with beauty and basketball fans in mind, the satin shade of Raptors’ signature red will look amazing on anyone who supports the defending NBA champions. The Full Force Plumping Lipstick is said to visibly smooth and fill lips, while ingredients like avocado oil, jojoba esters and vitamin E condition your pout. We can’t decide what’s better: the long-wear formula, or the fact that it smells like vanilla. Regardless, it is definitely cuter than a jersey. The lipstick is finally available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Real Sports Apparel inside Scotiabank Arena, and will be on Sephora shelves in December.
Jennifer Lopez got a new asymmetrical lob-cut
Jenny from the block knows where she came from, but isn’t afraid to evolve. Trying out new hairstyles is not uncommon for Jennifer Lopez, and this week we noticed she was wearing an asymmetrical lob. Celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton cut Lopez’s locks, and included a deep side part with a few golden highlights to frame her face. This look deserves a *chef’s kiss*.

We have something really exciting to share. 🌎 We've been exploring ways to improve our sustainability efforts and reduce our environmental impact globally. One of the things that kept popping up was a recycling program, and today, we are finally introducing a starter solution in our plan for efficient recycling. ❤️ Our new recycling program, in partnership with @terracycle, encourages the drop-off of (clean) empties from any beauty brand (not just DECIEM) at select DECIEM locations (to begin). Customers in the UK, USA, and Canada will be able to visit select DECIEM locations to drop-off empties from any beauty brand (including but not limited to serum bottles, dropper lids, plastic/aluminum tubes, lotion and shower gel bottles). Empties are then sorted by material type and then recycled, or repurposed, for a new life. 🌱 To compliment this approach, our in-house Earth Initiatives team continues to explore longer-term product and packaging improvements in order to facilitate even further change. Drop off points can be found at: 🌳 DECIEM Toronto Exchange Tower 🌳 DECIEM Mississauga Square One 🌳 DECIEM Vancouver Downtown 🌳 DECIEM NYC 5th Avenue 🌳 DECIEM NYC Nolita 🌳 DECIEM Chicago Wicker Park 🌳 DECIEM San Francisco Union Square 🌳 DECIEM London Commercial Street 🌳 DECIEM London Westfield White City 🌳 DECIEM London Seven Dials If you're not able to visit one of our drop-off points, our Happiness team (and us, here in DMs and comments below) will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about DECIEM packaging and efficient local recycling. Please say hello to our Happiness team via DECIEM.com/contact. Happy recycling. ♻️❤
This week, Deciem announced a new recycling program in an attempt to improve their sustainability efforts. This program allows people to drop off their clean empties from any beauty brand, which will then be sorted by material type before being recycled or repurposed. Partnering with TerraCycle, the brand has placed white cardboard boxes with the words “BEAUTY IS BEING HUMAN” at select Deciem locations in the U.K., U.S. and Canada, including the shop in Toronto’s Exchange Tower. Deciem claims this is a starter solution in their plan for efficient recycling. No complaints here.
