Another week passed by so fast that we're sure you weren't able to catch up with all the buzz. So we're here to serve 'em up, fresh and sizzling, in today's Insider Roundup. Scroll through as we spill the deets on Mink's 3D printed makeup, Kim K.'s controversial new shapewear line, a Kylie versus Kylie brand battle, and more.
A Kylie versus Kylie makeup line?
Kylie Jenner's eponymous beauty line faces new competition with the same name (sort of). Australian-British pop star Kylie Minogue has just released her own beauty line called KYLIE, following her legal battle with Jenner that stretches back from 2016.
At the time, Minogue blocked Jenner from trademarking their shared name for endorsement services and is now evening out the playing field by jumping into the beauty business. Now we ask: are you team KYLIE or team Kylie Cosmetics?
Kim Kardashian is facing backlash for new shapewear line
It looks like this week isn't for the Kardashian-Jenners because aside from the KYLIE versus Kylie drama, Kim K. is also in a tight spot. Following the major debate on Kim's KKW body foundation release comes another backlash, this time towards her new shapewear line that she named "Kimono".
Now, the Kardashian-Jenners obviously love their brand name puns but this one was not cutting it. Japanese people were quick to note that kimonos are garments that hold high regard in their history and culture and Kim choosing to name her product line for the sake of a pun was simply 'disrespectful'. Kim has yet to comment on the issue.
Karl x L'Oreal is coming
Two powerhouses join forces as Karl Lagerfeld's beauty line collabs with L'Oreal Paris. The joint makeup collection is said to reflect the late designer's elegant yet edgy style. There are still very few deets on the collab aside from a series of teasers released on Instagram, but what we know is that the collection is set to be revealed at Paris Fashion Week later this year.
3D printed makeup is now a reality
The wave of the future in beauty is really here. Grace Choi, CEO and co-founder of Mink, finally announced the arrival of their fully functioning at-home makeup 3D printer. The concept, which was revealed way back in 2014, makes use of the Mink app to let you scan any image on the internet and have it printed with makeup as the ink. The image is now your very own personalised paper palette, mimicking the colours of the image you've chosen.
With the printer's ability to capture at least 16.7 million shades, you can copy colours of foundation shades, lipstick shades, and any other product — or image — imaginable to add to your makeup stash. But what does this mean for the entire beauty industry? Only time can tell.
Marlena Stell spills the tea on James Charles, Jaclyn Hill, and more beauty community drama
Thought the YouTube beauty community can pass a week without drama? Apparently, that's not the case. Makeup Geek founder and YouTube content creator Marlena Stell spilt all the tea in her latest video titled 'Dear Influencers'. In a nutshell, the hour-long video talked about the truth regarding Jaclyn Hill's lipsticks, her past beef with James Charles, and more.
Stell clarified that she's simply clearing the air for the audience who may not know what's happened behind-the-scenes and that it isn't her intention to stir the pot at all. We'll let you decide on the verdict for this one — if you have the patience to give this one-episode-on-Netflix-long video a watch.
