Insider Roundup: LANEIGE Leaving The PH & More

Goodbyes and hellos

A new week means a new opportunity to learn more. And we're definitely grabbing all the opportunities we have to learn about the latest in the worlds of fashion and beauty. Here are just some of the ones we've gathered so far.


H&M hullabaloo



It's not the first time a fast fashion brand is engulfed in controversy. But this time, things got a little bit messier than usual — literally. An H&M store in South Africa has been trashed by activists following the backlash received by a photo of a young boy of colour wearing a sweatshirt with the print "Coolest monkey in the jungle" got on social media. H&M has reportedly closed down all its stores in South Africa after the incident.


Goodbye, LANEIGE PH?



While the news has yet to come from the brand itself, there have been talks that LANEIGE is leaving the Philippines. In place of LANEIGE, another Korean beauty brand will be introduced to the market. Can you guess what it is?


Tarte Shape Tape Foundation



A foundation version of the cult favourite Tarte Shape Tape concealer is coming. With many saying that the concealer is holy grail worthy, the coming of the foundation has been highly anticipated. But the launch has not been without controversy because people have been quite dismayed with the colour selection.


MAC x Padma Lakshmi



MAC Cosmetics is not slowing down when it comes to their collaborations. The beauty brand has just announced their upcoming collection in partnership with top model and host Padma Lakshmi. The collection includes eyeshadow palettes, as well as individual colours for the eyes, lips and cheeks.
