Here's what had people talking this week.

Victoria Beckham launched a lip collection

Just weeks after launching her eponymous beauty line, Victoria Beckham has extended her offering with a lip collection. In a release, she said, “Anyone who knows me knows I’m obsessed with both lipliner and shades of nude, so it was only natural that for my second collection I’d introduce the two lip essentials that I use to create my perfect nude lip look every day.” Those essentials are six nude lipliners and the Bitten Lip Tint which the brand describes as “an innovative gel like formula in one” which can be used alone or on top of colour.

In a snap showing off two of her new pieces, Kardashian West’s toothbrush could be seen lounging solo on her much ‘grammed sinkless sink. Naturally, the internet had questions. One user wrote, “Even the small addition of a toothbrush makes this bathroom seem ‘cluttered’,” whilst another commented, “How does Kim Kardashian live in a house that barely has anything in it except a toothbrush on her vanity…where is everything…how…”.
