New releases and cool tech

We've gone past the halfway mark of this month, but we still have a lot of things on our to-do list. One of the many things we want to continue to accomplish is to stay abreast on what's happening in the worlds of fashion and beauty. Like any other enthusiast, we've got our noses over the latest and hottest. So here's what we found out.

Sunday Riley in hot water

Sunday Riley, the creator of her eponymous skincare brand, is under hot water for not being clear about her credentials. The entrepreneur has always referred to herself as not just the CEO of her company but also its product formulator, but a report on Business Insider says her "credentials are murky." This comes a few weeks after it was made known to the public that employees of the brand were asked to write positive reviews about their products in different beauty e-commerce stores.
