“Me so Fleek” is for those who demand a pop of color on their face.

Each day we get new, exciting news from the beauty and fashion world about new launches. But there is no better thing than hearing that everyone’s favorite brands are invested in delivering quality products without harming animals or the environment. The latest brand to join the green club is Milk Makeup. The popular cosmetics company announced that from now on, all of their products will be 100% vegan.
Milk was launched in 2016, by Georgie Greville, who is now the brand’s director, Diana Ruth, chief operating officer and Zanna Roberts Rassi. Ever since the very beginning, the Insta popular makeup label has been cruelty-free. Milk’s three founders refused to test on animals from the very beginning. They also stayed away from harmful chemicals in their formulas. Parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates, mineral oil, talc, sulfates, SLS, SLES are just some of those chemicals that everyone wants to avoid. In those terms, all of the label’s makeup was clean but still used animal-derived ingredients. Milk is also very popular for the fun, minimalist recyclable packaging.
Diana, Georgie, and Zanna decided to take a new step in the course of their brand, after doing a lot of research. Considering the fact, that all animal products can be substituted with vegan alternatives, Milk Makeup is now going 100% green. The fact that they will not be using any animal ingredients such as bee honey, lanolin, gelatin, collagen doesn’t mean that we will get products with a lower quality.
“When we started Milk Makeup, we all had young kids, which makes you hyper-aware of all the toxicity in the world. We wanted to use healthy ingredients that we felt great about, especially if our kids got their hands on the products.”-Georgie explained. ” While we’ve always been a majority-vegan line, the shift to 100% vegan is important to us because using animal byproducts is an unnecessary practice. There is no animal product or byproduct that doesn’t have a safe natural or synthetic alternative. These ingredients are questionable for your health and have no place on your face.’-Diana added.
The label is already using plant-derived alternatives such as mango butter, coconut oil avocado oil and more as substitutes. A number of cosmetics and fashion labels have already adopted the cruelty-free way of creating their products. Anyway, not many are ready to go 100 % vegan. Fortunately, things seem to be changing. Milk Makeup is joining the ranks of brands such as Kat Von D Beauty, Hourglass Cosmetics, Lush and more which are committed to delivering goodies made of natural, vegan constituents.

It’s a gorgeous pink powder puff, packed with a shimmery, glittery substance. As if that’s not enough to raise the excitement, the “Wild Thoughts’ singer debuted an oversized kabuki brush.

When Kim Kardashian and her long-serving makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic announced that they are collaborating on a collection, the internet freaked out. Millions of fans who follow their work, know that Mario Dedivanovic is the artist behind Kim’s most iconic makeup looks. They started working together 10 years ago and shaped the beauty industry ever since. Mario and Kim started the contouring craze that is still alive and well to this day. Kim Kardashian’s signature bronze smokey eye has countless of recreations all over the social media. Her bright under eye changed the way we conceal. With the launch of KKW Beauty last year, it was just a question of time when Kim and her makeup artist will treat their fans with a collaborative collection.
The KKW Beauty x Mario makeup collection finally has a launch date! The duo’s collaborative goodies will drop on April 5. Kim and Mario met on this date, 10 years ago. Kim Kardashian wasn’t as big back then and many artists and designers were advised to avoid working with her. Dedivanovic had to cut ties with his agency because of his work with the most famous Kardashian. According to the makeup artist, the agency said goodbye to him with the following words: “Good luck, Mario because you will never get a Vogue cover working with her”. He went against all odds and to this date landed six Vogue covers with Kim, countless covers on other prestige magazines, a status of celebrity makeup artist and an upcoming collaboration with the queen of the beauty world herself.
The beauty mogul and her makeup artist finally revealed more details about their collaboration. Kim Kardashian and Mario Dedivanovic are releasing an eyeshadow palette and lipsticks. As a surprise to many, the eyeshadow palette includes a pop of color. Besides Kim’s signature bronze and brown shades, they included a vibrant cobalt blue. This shade is called Libra, a nod to Kim’s and Mario’s horoscope sign. Mario has done quite a few blue looks on Kim throughout the years and they are among Kim’s favorites. Mario’s mood board for this palette was full of images of makeup looks that he has done on Kim. That is where he found inspiration to create this palette together with Kim Kardashian. This palette has a total of 10 eyeshadows with both matte and shimmery finish as well as a mirror. The price of the palette is $45, which is pretty reasonable compared to the other eyeshadow palettes on the market.
The KKW Beauty x Mario collab also includes 3 lipsticks: one creme lipstick that will retail for $20 and two high shine lipglosses with $18 price tag. The lipsticks are expectedly on the nude side since Kim was never a huge fan of bold lips.
