Beauty Insider: November 2019

Beauty Insider: November 2019

Big news in beauty

  • Attention all Kardashian fans – KKW Fragrance has officially landed in Myer. Kim’s iconic fragrances (such as the Hearts, Gardenia and Body ranges) can be found in store or online at – we advise you move quickly; Myer is only the second retailer in the world to stock the scents, so they’re very hot property.
  • Multinational beauty company Coty has announced it will purchase a 51 per cent stake in Kylie Jenner’s beauty business (a $600 million purchase – good going, Kylie). Jenner will keep a 49 per cent stake in the brand and remain the creative lead on product development and marketing initiatives, so yes, the infamous swatching videos will continue.
  • Beauty powerhouse James Charles is launching a reality show, with hype around the venture describing it as “Project Runway meets America’s Next Top Model with a dash of beauty”. Contestants will need to show off their skills via YouTube, with six people being chosen to fly to LA to compete for the prize. Blending brushes at the ready, people – Hollywood is calling.
  • The Body Shop is proud to once again partner with Amnesty International, announcing the 2019 Christmas gift tag, featuring a hand-painted design by Indigenous artist Emma Hollingsworth, titled ‘Believe’. The tags are $2 or 3 tags for $5, with all proceeds donated to Amnesty International, which is working to protect the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islands people.
  • Want to win a luxurious day at the Portsea Polo? Beauty brands are giving you the chance. Milky Foot and Hydrolol are both offering incredible prize packs so enter now.
  • Cetaphil, one of the leading brands in therapeutic skin care, has introduced a new name for their acne-prone and eczema-prone ranges – Cetaphil PRO. Don’t fret about the formulas, though – the newly named products still retain their amazing formulations, and remain as effective for managing conditions such as acne-prone and eczema-prone skin as ever.
  • Girls with curls, get ready – the first ever festival for curly-haired women is coming to Australia. The Love My Curls Festival, a one-day beauty event, will bring together curly-haired professionals, influencers and international hair brands to celebrate Australian women of all ethnicities with curly and textured hair. The festival will be held on Sunday, December 8, 2019 at Bondi Pavillion in Sydney – tickets are available at for $25.
  • Congratulations are in order for natural Aussie brand Natio – they are now the #1 cosmetic brand in community pharmacy. With a range that spans across all colour cosmetics, Natio’s ‘enhance your natural beauty’ philosophy and quality, premium formulations have established them as a leader in the cosmetics category.
  • After the iffy first launch of her makeup collection (during which fans found hair-like fibers in their new lipsticks), Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics has officially announced their relaunch plan. Dropping an entire holiday collection (without a single lip colour – good call), the glorious bronzey basics collection will instead include a luminous powder, accent brushes and three different highlighters – get ready to glow; it lands tomorrow.
  • In news that will surprise absolutely nobody (they’re two of the biggest digital moguls around), theJeffree Star Cosmetics x Shane Dawson collaboration sold out almost immediately after it launched; to be precise, the collab sold 1 million palettes in 30 minutes. Didn’t get a chance to get your hands on anything? Don’t worry, the collab will restock. We’ll keep our ears to the streets (AKA Jeffree and Shane’s feeds) for updates.
