Beauty Buzz: Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bag for Clinique, Jared Leto’s #ManBraid Bumps the #ManBun, and Rituals Adds Makeup to Its Beauty Routine



Meghan Trainor's lips are moving, but it’s not for another smash single. The songstress has partnered with Clinqiue to craft a limited edition makeup bag with bright blue stripes and a pout that really pops. But that’s not all: the cute cosmetic case to go along with a curated collection of Trainor’s favorite lippies that you can snap up separately, and it'll be available January 13 with a $30 purchase from the site. We’re already saving our shopping for tomorrow! [MTV]

The #ManBun is dead; long live the #ManBraid. Jared Leto switched up his style to present at the 215 Golden Globes on Sunday, inciting a flurry of approving and envious tweets. The simple three-strands twist also follows the Cary Joji Fukunaga’s pumped up plaits that he sported at the Emmys a few months ago. We wonder who we be the next long-locked male movie maker to continue the trend. [Refinery 29

Rituals is expanding beyond bodycare, adding cosmetics to its array of offerings. The brand crafted a gemstone-based collection, called The Precious Mineral Makeup, which will hit shelves starting in January and will include foundation, concealer, mascaras, eye pencils, nail polish, and lip color. So who was their muse? Cleopatra, of course! As Rituals chief executive officer and founder Raymond Cloosterman explained, “[During development], we said ‘Let’s not dive into a laboratory, let’s dive into history.’ We ended up with Cleopatra being the first woman in the world to use crushed gemstones for makeup. She used lapis lazuli for an eye pencil and a precious stone on her forehead, believing that the gem would prevent her skin from aging.” [WWD]

Gucci is elevating its Guilty fragrance to diamond status just in time for Valentine’s Day. The new scent turns up the seductive scent into a passionate frenzy, blending notes of pink pepper, lilac, cardamom, amber, and patchouli for the ladies. The Pour Homme version ignites the carnal fire with Italian lemon and mandarin, green leaves, pink pepper, coriander, orange flower, neroli, cedar, and patchouli. Now, this is a his-and-hers scent set that we need to snap up ASAP! [Glam Inbox]

Speaking of V-Day, the holiday is not complete without chocolate! Sephora has partnered with La Maison du Chocolat for a sweet gift set that includes sumptuous chocolate selections to snack on as well as Sephora’s Luster Matte lip color in a pretty pink that will work for whatever your date has in store for February 14. Pucker up! [Glam Inbox]
