Kylie Jenner’s Makeup Rival Is Totally Winning at Life and More Beauty News We Didn’t Need This Week

Pope Francis proves he knows more about beauty vlogs than you do.

Jeffree Star, the makeup expert who continuously shades Kylie Jenner and her budding beauty business, can’t be stopped.

The owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics has had a product out called the Velour Liquid Lipstick (the rival to Kylie’s lip kits), which he recently restocked only to find that the product had sold out in nearly all of its colors—again. In their feature on Star, InStyle reports that his products are so popular, he limits how much people can buy at one time to just two products.

Star also supposedly bought his own “liquid lip machine” (whatever that is), so we’re guessing big things are to come from him. And probably more shade(s), too.

  • Bella Hadid has been named Dior Makeup’s newest ambassador because she’s gorgeous and needs absolutely no makeup at all. Hadid will reportedly appear alongside Peter Phillips, the brand’s creative and image director, in a web series starting June 6. [Teen Vogue]
  • Pope Francis is the unlikely man who knows more about beauty vlog culture than you do. During a meeting he held with 12 YouTube personalities over the weekend, Pontifex flexed his beauty channel knowledge. He singled Louise Pentland of Sprinkle of Glitter, saying, “I am glad that you carry out the type of work you said, following the line of beauty, it’s a great thing. To preach beauty and show beauty helps neutralize aggression.” Praying for a His Holiness beauty line collaboration in the very near future. [The Cut]
  • In a quest to do less during one’s beauty routine, some have started to do the most. People are (apparently) getting lip color tattooed on their lips so they no longer have to apply it themselves—because how awful is that, anyway?
  • A new supplement called Glow Inner Beauty Powder wants you to think that coughing up $59.95 and sprinkling it over whatever the hell you’re eating will make you *glow* like Jennifer Lopez does anywhere, literally all of the time. Glow Inner Beauty Powder is “made up of naturally-fermented super foods, prebiotics, and probiotics” (please inform if you’re familiar with the term prebiotic) and includes chick peas, quinoa, chia, ginger, turmeric and green tea. It sounds gross, but hey, it was concocted by someone who calls herself The Beauty Chef, so you know it’s real. Right? [Marie Claire]
  • A new trend in hair coloring is channeling mullet mentality. InStyle reports the trend is “business on the top, party underneath,” which could essentially apply to anything you wear to work, but here, is referring strictly to hair. Below, an example of “surprise hair color.”
  • We asked couples to try on Kylie Jenner’s lip glosses and what happened was priceless. Find out in the clip below.
