Uh-Oh! Kylie Jenner's Customers Are Upset With Her Valentine's Day Lip Kit
Plus, other buzzy headlines from the week in fashion and beauty.
Kylie Jenner is having a bad week. At least, her cosmetics are. After customers freaked out over an alleged chemical smell in Kylie's latest eyeshadow palette (as it turns out, Peach Royal doesn't smell like peaches) they dove in again with complaints about her Valentine's Day Lip Kit.
You see, the color in the so-called "Limited Edition" set looked very familiar to some. Regular Kylie customers showed side-by-side swatches of the "new" color, Blitzen, and a previously released shade called Spice. Hmm, do you see much of a difference? To be fair, Kylie's company did describe Blitzen as a "warmer version" of Spice. So, they admitted that the two hues are—shall we say—from the same family.
If you're in New York, you'll have a chance to investigate this scandal in person next week: the youngest Jenner is bringing a pop-up shop to SoHo on February 13. And, yes, the headline-making Blitzen will be in stock. (Well, for at least ten minutes, we'd assume.)
Speaking of New York: NYFW kicked off on Thursday, with shows like Thakoon and La Perla (hi, Kendall!) storming the runways. Of course, there was also a storm outside, and Vogue's street-style photographer Phil Oh caught plenty of cold-weather-dressing inspiration. We may need a teal coat decked with orange fur. It's definitely something to consider.
That's not it for Vogue news! The magazine, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary, made waves with its refreshing March 2017 cover. Celebrating the "modern American woman," the cover features a diverse cast of models, who represent a range of ethnicities and body types. Still, not everyone is sold on the spirit of inclusivity.
Readers have noted that Ashley Graham is the only "plus-size" model to appear (though, ahem, Ashley calls it "my size,") and some even claim that Gigi Hadid's arm was elongated to hide Ashley's waist. Treasonous!
Before we let you head off into the weekend, here's your official reminder: Girls premieres its sixth and final season on HBO on Sunday. Lena Dunham has made the press rounds in Todd Oldham, stopping by Inside the Actor's Studio and answering Vogue's famous "73 Questions."
In the video, the actress and writer (and more!) reveals that her biggest fashion regret is wearing "formal shorts." She also cites neon green as the best hair color she's ever had, and names the "Giambattista Valli pink dress that looked like birthday cake" as her favorite red-carpet look. As for her style icon? That'd be Chloë Sevigny.
Lena's Girls co-star, Allison Williams, appears on the March color of Allure—but not like you've seen her before. The typically brunette star looks completely different with icy blonde hair. She got the light hue with a colorist named Aura at New York's Sally Hershberger Salon. "I'm the first colorist to be credited with the color of Allure," Aura noted on Instagram.
We'll see you next Friday for more gowns, glamour, and gossip.
