Latest Makeup Buzz – Glossier Brand New Product Released

Last month at the Grammys, Glossier hinted a big release of something new after posting a photo of Beyoncé captioned “Beyoncé wears ___ in ___ (coming soon)”. Enough to tease the excitement and curiosity of makeup fanatics and artists.

So fast forward to the day of the Oscars’ glitz and glamour, Glossier released their new product, the Lidstar, a glistening eye glow. Driving the hype of this Lidstar, it debuted its glistening eye glow via beauty looks of Salma Hayek, Greta Gerwig, Tracee Ellis Ross, Taraji Hensona, and Oscars best supporting actress winner Allison Janney.

These shiny babies are  housed in test tube-ish packaging with a doe foot applicator, promise to ‘lock on’ to lids for up to 12 hours without creasing, fading, or smudging.

Available in six high-shine shades in Lily, Moon, Slip, Cub, Fawn, and Herb. According to each shade is one of a kind—different coated pigments, different pearls, different flecks, different special effects . It will cost $18, or two for $30.

One great thing with this (personally) is the no primer required in application according to Glossier. Impressive! Pretty soon tons of beauty bloggers and vloggers will put this claim to test.

All of the shades are now available on and I’m guessing, fawn will be a sold out.

Vivo APEX kicks up future of ‘bezel-less’ phones

Global smartphone brand Vivo keeps pushing its limits following the reveal of the APEX™ FullView™ concept smartphone at the 2018 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. With this new model, Vivo is determined to get ahead of the competition by reducing the bezels to 1.8mm on the top and at the sidesand 4.3mm at the bottom with a screen size of 5.99 inches. These specs make the APEX the thinnest bezel-less phone with the highest screen-to- body ratio in the industry. In fact, the screen-to- body ratio may exceed 98% if the lower bezel is also reduced to 1.8mm for a genuine all-screen display experience.

It also eliminates the idea of a notch, as introduced by Apple in iPhone X. To recall, Apple’s iPhone X has a screen size of only 5.8 inches and a screen-to- body ratio of a mere 82.9%. Samsung’s Galaxy S8, alo has a screen size of 5.8 inches and a screen-to- body ratio of 83.6% despite its “Infinity Display” hashtag. Thus, both flagship phones are not even on the fringe of the 98% screen-to- body ratio of Vivo’s APEX.
