    Prince's Posthumous Urban Decay Collaboration + Jessica Alba's $130M Payday in Beauty Headlines

    Prince's Posthumous Urban Decay Collaboration + Jessica Alba's $130M Payday in Beauty Headlines

    It's Wednesday (sorry we're a day late!) and we have a lot of celebrity beauty headlines to cover. First up, the Prince Estate has collaborated with Urban Decay on an upcoming collection. Kirbie and Sara share their thoughts (and the missed product opportunities –– When Doves Cry-liner, anyone?). Sara tries to hide her jealousy of Lori Harvey (and fails), who is not only launching a skincare brand, but is testing it on BF Michael "Bae" Jordan. Lil Yachty has us excited about his upcoming nail paint launch, Crete, and we have ideas on how the applicator may be a point of differentiation for the brand. In Instagram drama, people can't stop talking about a Beauty Blender video (let alone the brand's response to the discourse). And we wrap things up with some industry news: Beirsdorf is refuting claims that artificial blue light affects the skin, while Jessica Alba is getting that money, Honey, as Honest Company goes public. Plus, Sara's sweet pout is shouting out a new Chanel gloss-balm hybrid for WOYF that's perfect for getting back into public.
