Insider Roundup: Unilever Acquires Hourglass Cosmetics & More

Acquisitions, new releases and more

Can you believe we're nearing the end of June already? A lot of things have happened, and there are still lots that will happen. So we're bracing ourselves for all things fun and exciting coming our way. The start of the week has already been filled with lots of exciting happenings. Here are just some of them.

Unilever buys Hourglass

Unilever has acquired Hourglass Cosmetics, making the colour brand the beauty giant's first. Among Unilever's brands are Murad and Dermalogica.


Zayn Malik has launched his first collection with Versus Versace. Along with the release of the collection was a campaign featuring the former One Direction member and his girlfriend's sister, Bella Hadid.

Lifting and Firming Redefined

Take your anti-ageing pursuits to another level with the revamped Hada Labo Lifting+Firming range. Enriched with new ingredients such as Elasgrow Complex, Pseudo Ceramide and Macadamia Oil, Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidants, the range is perfect for anyone's age-defying efforts.

Miley Cyrus vs. D&G

Dolce and Gabbana have found themselves in another online battle. The fashion house has received flak for supporting U.S. First Lady Melania Trump, and singer-actress Miley Cyrus is the latest to share her dismay over the brand's decision. Cyrus posted a photo of her brother walking for the brand and shared that she will continue to support her sibling even though she "strongly disagree[s]" with the brand's stance on politics.
