The Scoop: Chrissy Teigen, MAC for Aaliyah and Morphe Collab Cancelled


This week we have seen quite a few very exciting launches here in the UK along with round 2 of BECCA Cosmetics X Chrissy Teigen fully revealed.  Let's dive in to this weeks Scoop - your UK beauty news roundup! 

Marc Jacobs Beauty unveils Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick

Marc Jacobs Beauty has launched a new lip gloss named the Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick. Featuring the lush hydration of a balm, the shiny finish of a gloss and the plush feel of a lipstick, the custom teardrop applicator hugs the curves of lips for a perfect finishing touch. The non-sticky formula is infused with Vitamin-rich kahai oil, helping to protect, moisturise and soften lips with a hint of a creamy mint scent. The Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick is now available in eight shades for £22 HERE.  

Pat McGrath Launches MTHRSHIP Eyeshadow Palettes and Lust Glosses 

We have finally seen an extension of the existing range of Pat McGrath products which are available exclusively in the UK at Net-a-Porter.  We see the addition of three MTHRSHIP eyeshadow palettes each including 6 matte and shimmer shades in the labels highly sought after formula (£50).  There are also three exclusive Lust Gloss Kits in Cool, Warm and Colour Blitz (£86).  Makeup artist Pat McGrath describes her 'Lust' glosses as being "as unforgettable as the searing memories, passion and pleasure of your first love".  

All are available HERE.  

MAC Cosmetics for Aaliyah Collection Launches Globally

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Vault Collection Cancelled!?

It was announced overnight that the Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Vault Collection launch will be delayed.  This is due to subpar eyeshadow quality.  Following products being sent out in PR and fans getting them in early access it has come to light that the shadows aren't quite perfect.   YouTuber Jackie Aina was the first to demonstrate inconsistencies with the formulas with some performing well and others being patchy.  

Morphe have stated that the palettes did not meet their "usual high standard due to inconsistent production".  

This isn't the first time we have seen an eyeshadow palette made in collaboration with Jaclyn Hill pulled from shelves.  In 2016 BECCA Cosmetics teamed up with Jaclyn Hill and created The Champagne Collection which included a face palette and eyeshadow palette.  The eyeshadow palette was discontinued by the brand after launching due to bad reviews with customers complaining of poor colour payoff.  

I do think these instances show Jaclyn's honest nature.  She could easily let these products go off into the world and take her coin.  However, it is great that she is putting consumers and fans first.  This also increases my confidence in Morphe's ethics as a brand.    

The Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Vault Collection will be launching later this year.  

Sample Beauty Launches Second Eyeshadow Palette

British indie brand Sample Beauty have launched their second eyeshadow palette.  The Paradigm Shift Palette features 35 easily blendable shades (30 mattes, 5 shimmers) in a full spectrum of colour.  It has the perfect amount of colour pay off that suits you. Use the shadows on a wet base for intense payoff or use them on a set base for a softer look.

The brand do note that if you are looking for a palette that has intense colour payoff on a set base (or no base), this palette may not be for you.

The Sample Beauty Paradigm Shift Palette costs £34.95 and is available HERE

Too Faced Announce Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer

Too Faced are extending their Born This Way range with a Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer.  The product can be used to conceal, contour, highlight, and retouch with a super perfecting, natural finish.  Fully loaded pigments provide maximum coverage with an undetectable finish.  

The concealer will be priced £24.  I don't have the exact details on a UK launch at present but stay tuned as I hope to have these soon.

BECCA Cosmetics X Chrissy Teigen Endless Summer Glow Collection Revealed
