Had a stressful week? Don't worry, we got you. Sit back, relax, and browse through this week's hottest news to ease your mind into the weekend. Just to tease, we've got Filipino brand Sunnies Face tying up with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's beauty brand. Greta Thunberg was also named as Time Magazine's Person of the Year. Got you excited? We're spilling the main deets in this week's Insider Roundup.
Sunnies Face x Rose Inc.
Just when we thought we've seen all of 2019's most exciting collabs, this one comes along. After getting a lot of demands from their U.S. fans to make the brand available outside of the Philippines, Sunnies Face finally gave in. Sunnies has collaborated with Rose Inc., the company of model, actress and former Victoria's Secret Angel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, to launch two limited edition make up kits just in time for the holidays.
The first one is the On-Duty kit meant for an effortlessly glamorous look. The Off-Duty kit, on the other hand, is more for casual, warm-toned looks that you can take from day-to-night. Each kit contains its own patent makeup pouch, two Fluffmate lipsticks, and one Airblush blusher. The kits are available for purchase in the U.S. via Rose Inc.'s website. Alternately, PH fans can grab the featured products individually either in-store or via the Sunnies Face website.
Nike announces their Victory Modest Swim collection
This past couple of years have been big for Nike in terms of promoting diversity, inclusivity, and empowerment. From globally launching their first hijabi athletics line in 2017 to having plus-sized mannequins in most of their stores in 2019 now comes yet another great move from the sports brand: Victory Modest Swim collection. Featuring lightweight yet full-coverage swimwear pieces — complete with swim hijab, a waterproof tunic top, and swim leggings — the collection is designed for high-performance and ease-of-mobility in water. It also aims to empower not just Muslim women but even those who simply prefer more modest swimwear pieces. Catch it in stores and on Nike's website starting February 2020.
Google launches browser extension to protect your passwords
Amid all the news about data breaches and hacked accounts popping up almost every day, protecting your online data is of utmost importance. To help you along this process, Google just launched a Password Checkup browser extension that can be installed for free to help protect your login details. This new online tool is said to help users identify weak passwords, as well as receive prompts if their passwords were compromised. The tool is said to be further developed and implemented in the future to be built-in at Chrome browsers. In the meantime, it wouldn't hurt to install it, don't you think?

Greta Thunberg named as Time Magazine's 2019 Person of the Year
This year saw a lot of sustainability and eco-friendly efforts. So it's no surprise that 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, who's been one of the biggest voices of environmental activism this year, has been named Time Magazine's Person of the Year. The title, which recognises public figures, unnamed personalities, and even inanimate objects that played a huge role within a certain calendar year since 1927, has been one of the biggest traditions in media and pop-culture to date.
