How did your weekend go? It's the start of a new working week, and we're back to hustling. We're also back to reading up on the latest and hottest in the worlds of fashion and beauty. Ahead, what you need to know right now.


H&M Bridal



If you never thought you'd say you'd get married in an H&M dress, you might change your mind now. The fashion brand has just released their wedding collection, and the selection is pretty and quite affordable.


MAC x Patrick Starrr Part 2



MAC Cosmetics and Patrick Starrr have released a preview of the second instalment of their collaboration. Inspired by spring, the Me So Fleek and Me So Chic face kits include colours that remind you of blossoms and freshness.

Some products are just too good (or too ridiculous) to be true. Take for example Tarte's 'newly released' Icy Betch palette that got us so excited until we learned that it's just an April Fool's prank. Earlier today on Instagram, Tarte urged followers to watch their stories because there's gonna be "an exciting reveal". Fans were so pleased to discover the brand's latest palette with blue and silver shades. However, in the next slide, it's revealed as a prank. At least there's still a very real sale going on!



It's not just Tarte that fooled around. Lush, who's known for its bath bombs, 'launched' a "beer bath bomb". It claims to turn your bath water into real beer, so you can just take a "big swig" in the tub after a long day. They even uploaded a hilarious commercial advertising this product. Haha, if this product were for real we'll surely give it a try.



Another brand that made us smile is Head & Shoulders, who revealed 'their latest product' called 'Knees & Toes' which is supposedly a body wash and shampoo in one. A nod to the old nursery rhyme, "My Toes, My Knees, My Shoulders, My Head,' We don't mind if they make this product available in the market. Maybe in the near future?



Moving on to fashion brands, Forever21 indulged us in some self-deprecating humour when they posted tees with weird slogans along with a video that shows the 'brainstorming process' behind it. We all know how this fast fashion brand often receives jabs and ridicule about the phrases printed on their tees, so at least now people know they're aware of it. That ringer tee looks cute though.





And then there are brands who 'want to venture into the beauty world', even just for a day. Would you buy Essential Pretzel Oils from the "House of A" aka Auntie Anne's? You can choose from Freshly Baked, Salty and Cinnamon Twist scents. 



Or maybe you'd fancy this 'Valley Girl' collection from Hidden Valley Ranch? They've got Uh Huh Honey BBQ eyeshadow, Bae-con brow shade and many more. 



Kidding aside, this slew of beauty and fashion pranks got us thinking about the products that we wish were real. Like what if there's a mascara that makes our lashes so lush but is very easy to take off? Or a pair of stilettoes that automatically changes colour to match our current outfit? What about a real-life Facetune, where our blemishes will vanish with just a tap? Here's hoping these will come true soon. Happy belated April Fools, ladies.
