New York, NY– Has your beauty bag been looking sad and empty lately? Do you find yourself at Sephora, confused with the lack of clarity? Have you ever asked the associate at the front desk what she recommends and she simply tells you “It’s all great!” So many celebrities have launched their very own makeup lines that “It’s Official: Every Celeb Now Has a Beauty Line” according to the New York Times in November 2020. It’s so special to be proud of what you wear every day. Maybe it’s because it’s a Black-owned brand, or maybe because it lifts you up. If you got yourself in a slump, we have 5 products that are sure to make you feel glamorous. 

Coming in at item number one is Item Beauty by Addison Rae’s “Lip Quip.”

“This luscious gloss forms a juicy boost of hydration that keeps lips soft and kissable, thanks to good-for-you ingredients like jojoba oil, almond oil, camellia japonica seed oil and shea butter,” says Addison on her website. The gloss is sure to make a beautiful smile. 

Next up we have Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez. This is her “Blot and Glow Touch Up Kit.” As one of the highest-rated products in Selena’s line, this glow up kit includes blotting sheets and a powder puff. It’s for “freshening up on the go.” says Selena on the Sephora website. The sheets are very good for absorbing thick oil, and the powder puff is pre filled so you have everything you need right there. There is no flashback in the powder and it is translucent for all skin tones. Selena included pearl in the powder so it doesn’t leave your skin looking flat. She’s got you covered. The compact is easy to travel with and is just an overall necessity. 

We took a look closer at JLo Beauties’ “That JLo Glow 4 Piece Kit.” Inside, the kit includes JLos “That Blockbuster” Eye Cream, which is your go-to for getting your under eyes just as bright as your smile. Also included in the kit, there is a JLo Beauty “That Hit Single” facial cleanser. This cleanser is full of moisture and fabulous shine.  It’s sure to leave your skin feeling  warm, hydrated, and aloe-kissed. With your kit also comes the “That JLo Glow” Serum. It is most definitely the highlight of the kit, according to some happy customers. JLo’s “That Star Filter,” a very popular item on her website, is also included. It is a star complexion tinter; the product is loads of fun and very glamorous. A happy customer, in review of the product said, “Ordered this for a gift & decided I needed the gift! Love it!! I’m 72 and have tried MANY skincare products through the years. This JLo Beauty Glow kit is fabulous!! Not too greasy, hydrating & the bronze/glow is lovely (a little goes a long way).
