Get excited because we’re so close to saying goodbye to 2021.

Mark A. Carlson

Welcome to The Haul, our monthly column where we uncover the best new beauty products to add to your shopping cart.

There are plenty of things you could spend your money on at the end of the year, from a well-deserved vacation to a set of fancy new luggage (for said getaway). Considering it’s the holiday season, presents are also a likely candidate. And there are thankfully more than enough new makeup and skincare products to gift all the beauty lovers on your list, from eyeshadow palettes for the person who loves a little sparkle and shimmer to anti-aging treatments for those concerned with preventing or diminishing the appearance of wrinkles (i.e., everyone).

VictoriaLand Beauty’s CyR.U.S. System is a tactile solution making beauty packaging and products accessible for blind and partially sighted consumers. Using raised symbols and embossed QR codes, consumers can navigate VictoriaLand’s portfolio through touch and audio information on the product type, usage, and ingredients.

We spoke with Victoria Watts, founder of VictoriaLand Beauty, about the importance of accessible cosmetic packaging.

GPS trackers on beauty products lead police to alleged trio of thieves

Mark A. Carlson

MIAMI, Fla. – Three women are in custody after GPS trackers on beauty-store merchandise led police to an alleged trio of robbers in Miami on Wednesday.

Timaya Timara, 27, Brynisha Lynonn, 24, and Quatika Vernette, 22, are all under arrest accused of a string of retail thefts at cosmetics’ stores across Broward County, allegedly taking make-up and supplies valued at nearly $8,000.

Their heist, according to investigators, began just after 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday at the Sephora store at 1809 S. University Drive in Davie. They walked out of the front doors with almost $2,000 worth of merchandise, but not before a store employee snapped a picture of one of the women.

Then the women got into a silver Nissan sedan and drove to Dania Beach, where they stole more than $3,000 in products from an ULTA store in Dania Pointe at 1760 S. Bearing St.

After that, they went

Chemicals in Hair, Beauty Products May Interfere With Hormones During Pregnancy

Mark A. Carlson

The new study “fits in well” with that overall body of research, said Alexis Temkin, a toxicologist with the nonprofit Environmental Working Group in Washington, D.C.

It links hair product use to hormonal differences that are consistent with some of the health effects that have been tied to such products, according to Temkin.

The findings — published in the journal Environmental Research — are based on 1,070 pregnant women in Puerto Rico who made up to three study visits over the course of their pregnancy. They completed questionnaires on personal product use and gave blood samples to have their hormone levels measured.

Overall, levels of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone were lower among women who reported using “other” hair products, versus nonusers. That category included dyes, straighteners, bleaches and mousse, but not shampoo, conditioner, hair spray or hair gel.

It’s not clear, according to Rivera-Nunez, whether

The 20 Best Beauty Products of 2021

Mark A. Carlson

In the latter half of 2021, we have reintroduced (safely) socializing into our lives, rekindling long-forgotten joies de vivre and relishing the moments spent with friends, family, and coworkers (that is, until we figure out what Omicron means for the future).

Seeing more people has also meant others seeing us—a lot more of us. The Zoom filters and strategic lighting at home that we once relied upon can’t always help us IRL. Luckily, the past twelve months have seen the release of dozens of stellar beauty products. We’ve chosen 20 launches from 2021 that we sincerely approve of—and deem deserving of your recognition (and money). We consider these products not only exceptionally effective, they’re also soothing, decadent, and in the cases of some of the makeup products highlighted below, utterly gorgeous when applied.

Pantone Color of the Year 2022: Shop Beauty Products in Very Peri

Mark A. Carlson

As 2021 comes to a close, Pantone has looked ahead to predict which color will encapsulate the year ahead. For the Pantone Color of the Year 2022, the global authority has introduced a “dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone” called Very Peri, or PANTONE 17-3938.

“Blending the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red, this happiest and warmest of all the blue hues introduces an empowering mix of newness,” Pantone stated in a press release about the new shade. While Pantone selected two colors for Color of the Year 2021, this year marks the first time in the Color of the Year history that the institute has created a new color to represent the global landscape.

“Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and a dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression,” Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the

Selena Gomez Shares Details on Rare Beauty’s New Spring Items

Mark A. Carlson

As the temperatures drop outside, Selena Gomez’s Rare Beauty line is looking ahead to warmer days—and the essential new additions coming in its spring collection. For the first time since Rare Beauty’s launch, Gomez got to take reporters through the year-old line’s new products and share her makeup hacks during a press day in New York City last month.

She wasn’t afraid to get personal, candidly speaking about how being famous so young affected her mental health and relationship with beauty. “I’ve been in makeup since I was seven years old. I feel like that kind of messed with me,” she said. “You’re so young and then working. I have professionals doing my makeup and suddenly I can look 25 when I was 16, and it was crazy,” the former Disney star recalls. “Then I felt like, ‘oh, I look too young all the time. I should achieve that look

Mushrooms are trending in makeup, beauty and hair products

Mark A. Carlson

Like black diamond truffles in the forests of Périgord, France, mushroom ingredients are cropping up in abundance in the beauty world. Once mostly a skin care phenomenon, the market for fungi-spiked merch has mushroomed, and now, alongside a crop of creams and serums, they’re finding their way into makeup, hair care and even brow boosters. 

That’s good news, says ahead-of-the-curve NYC dermatologist Jeannette Graf, who’s been studying the effects of mushrooms on skin for close to 20 years. While they may never achieve the legend status of say, alpha hydroxy acids or retinoids, mushrooms have been used for centuries in Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine to enhance overall health, and they bring a whole host of benefits to the complexion table. 

“Mushrooms are rich in beta glucans, which are immune-boosters for the skin, and have anti-oxidant, wound-healing and anti-aging properties,” Graf notes, before ticking off a tidy list of other

On the Beauty Group, a Facebook community co-founded by the Cut and the Strategist, people chat all day long about the products they love — the ones so good they’ll make you hit that little “auto-refill” box at checkout. Below, we asked one of our favorite beauty pros to share her selections.

Leah Wyar has four bottles of the same nail-polish color sitting at home. This might not seem special — except finding the exact shade was like falling down a rabbit hole.

“I used it once in a salon and never got the name, but I fell in love with it,” says Wyar. “It made me happy and energized when I would look at my fingers.” So she hopped in her car and drove almost half an hour back to the New Jersey spot, where she found

India’s Nykaa looks to triple store count in retail expansion – CEO

Mark A. Carlson

MUMBAI, Dec 1 (Reuters) – Indian cosmetics-to-fashion retailer Nykaa plans to more than triple its brick-and-mortar stores to 300, founder and Chief Executive Falguni Nayar said, significantly building its offline presence in the country.

Nayar declined to give a timeline for the rollout but said the company was targeting 100 cities, adding to the 84 retail outlets it already operates in 40 cities.

“The process of store expansion had slowed down due to (COVID-19) pandemic for a year or so,” Nayar said in an interview for the Reuters Next conference broadcast on Wednesday. “But this year we have revived our store rollout.”

Though Nykaa largely operates as an e-commerce platform selling everything from global cosmetic brands to jewellery, Nayar said the physical stores, targeting Indian consumers wanting to buy touch-and-feel products, were a critical part of the business.
