Insider Roundup: A Princess Jasmine Makeup Collection & More | Clozette

Cheers to Monday! Looking for ways to amp up your start-of-the-week attitude? Fill up with some exciting news like MAC Cosmetics teasing a Princess Jasmine-inspired makeup collection, and a 16-year-old nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, all here in today's Insider Roundup. 

A Princess Jasmine makeup collection is launching soon

In line with the full trailer release of Disney's live-action adaptation of Aladdin, MAC Cosmetics teased that a Princess Jasmine-inspired collection is coming soon and we are so here for it. Launching on 16 May, just days before the release of the film in theatres, it will come in a full range, from eyeshadows to blushes to a gorgeous lip product, all reminiscent of the princess's style and signature beauty look. 

What were you doing at 16? 

Sixteen-year-old Greta Thunberg has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize and she's starting to make us rethink what we were up to at that age. The Swedish student and activist is being recognised for her efforts in fighting global warming and calls for action on the growing climate crises. If she wins the prize in her category, she will be the youngest Nobel Prize recipient, taking over Malala Yousafzai, who got hers at 17 for documenting life under Taliban rule and advocating for women's rights and education.

Louis Vuitton pulls Michael Jackson-themed pieces from its collection

Following the release of the documentary Leaving Neverland, which lays out two alleged sexual and child abuse cases against Michael Jackson, Louis Vuitton announced that it is pulling themed pieces from its collection showcased last January at Paris Fashion Week in honour of the King of Pop. Virgil Abloh, LV designer for menswear, stated, "I am aware that in light of this documentary, the show has caused emotional reactions. I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights." The Michael Jackson estate has previously filed a suit against HBO regarding the allegations made in the documentary. The estate claims, "HBO has disparaged Jackson’s legacy by airing a one-sided hit piece against Jackson based exclusively on the false accounts of two proven, serial perjurers." Still, this didn't stop the damage that the documentary has caused for the King of Pop's legacy and this act from LV may just be the beginning.

Yves Saint Laurent’s collections are always something to look forward to, and not just because of the runways. YSL Beauté may have been around for quite a while but every season it tends to bring something fresh to the table. With high-performing products and meticulously detailed packaging, YSL Beauté reinforces the idea that makeup is just as much a luxury as it is an objet d’art. Last 16 March, the famous YSL Beauty Hotel touched down in Singapore to let its Southeast Asian clientele in on an immersive beauty experience.

Already forgetting Will Smith's laughable genie that instantly became a meme during the run of the teaser, as soon as the movie's classic hits A Whole New World and Never Had A Friend Like Me played in the full-length trailer, everyone was sold.

Facebook, Instagram, Gmail and more experienced major outage

Facebook malfunction

Last 13 and 14 March, various sites and social networking platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Gmail, and more experienced a major outage. Users were unable to upload posts, receive messages, and update their profiles, often landing on error pages or having sudden app shutdowns. These sites claim that the outage is unprecedented and the cause is still unknown. The connection between the multi-platform malfunction is also claimed to be coincidental. A similar incident occurred in 2016 that caused errors on sites such as Reddit, Twitter, and Spotify, which was later connected to a botnet mass hack. Thankfully, no such occurrence was reported and the sites went back to their usual state midday of the 14th. 

A Kendall x Kylie makeup collab is on its way

Ever since Kylie Jenner launched her eponymous makeup brand, she has collaborated with most of her family in launching various collections. She even did a dedicated release for her daughter, Stormi Webster, which is a success just like the others. And just a couple of weeks ago, we were given the inevitable news of her taking over Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest "self-made" billionaire according to Forbes. Now, it was announced that a collaboration with her sister Kendall (who was named one of the highest paid models for two years now) is also on the way and fans are excited. Not only has this been highly requested since Kylie opened her brand three years ago, but it was also expected since they launched their joint venture in fashion, 'Kendall + Kylie,' a while back.
