Kylie’s Big Mistake

Recently, Kylie Jenner released a new skincare line, which is now sold out. Prior to this, she posted a video to her social media showing fans her morning and night skin routine. Fans were criticizing Kylie for several reasons for this video. One of them being that she used a filter over her face when using her $24 product, making fans suspicious of the realness of her results. Additionally, commenters slammed how she washed her face, saying that she did not wash it for long enough. Fans also pointed out that when she dried her face with a towel, there was foundation left on the towel. Comments included, “Imagine buying face wash from someone who doesn’t even know how to wash their face properly,” “She used her make up as a cover so her skin wouldn’t have actual contact with the product..,” “Shouldn’t you wash your face for 1-2 minutes?” and “…the filter defeats the purpose of us seeing whatever affects your product has done to your skin…”


Bella Is a Cheater?

Mod Sun and Bella Thorne have gone through a very public breakup back in April, and Mod Sun has just made a huge hint. On The Domenick Nati Show, Mod Sun states, “Were we both faithful? I sure…was…I’m not going to speak for her.” He went on to say, “You already saw that she with someone the next day so you know how my head gonna be after I see that right? You know what I’m going yo be thinking…You can put those two together.” Mod Sun also states that he is the one who broke up with her, not the other way around, but he wouldn’t reveal the exact reason they broke up.


Sephora Officially Closed

After an incident involving SZA, the beauty store Sephora is taking steps to be more inclusive. SZA claims that she was racially profiled at one of their locations in Calabasas, and while shopping for Fenty cosmetics got security called on her. On April 30th SZA posted on Twitter, “…Sandy Sephora location 614 Calabasas called security to make sure I was stealing.” SZA coincidentally used to work at Sephora and modeled for Fenty when it first launched. In response to this whole situation, Sephora proclaimed it will close all its U.S. stores to hold inclusion workshops for employees and Rihanna gifted SZA with a gift card for the beauty products.


Stormi’s Hospital Visit

Kylie Jenner’s daughter, Stormi, had an allergic reaction and Kylie had to dash to the emergency room with her daughter. Thankfully, Stormi has since been discharged and is back to being healthy. Kylie later posted a picture of Stormi captioned, “Spent the day in the hospital with my baby. She had an allergic reaction but is 100% ok now and we are home. Nothing else matters when these things happen. God bless all the moms with sick babies. I’m sending so much love and positive energy your way.” It has not been said what Stormi is actually allergic to.
