CHINA CLIPS THE WINGS OF SEVERAL “ANGELS”

Singer Katy Perry and model Gigi Hadid will not be by flying among the angels at Victoria’s Secret’s widely-anticipated Shanghai runway show this month.  Sharing her regrets on Twitter (below), Hadid wished her Victoria’s Secret family well, but did not acknowledge the “Buddha incident” which allegedly led to her being banned by Chinese officials.
According to Page Six, Perry’s denial stems from a controversial 2015 performance in Taipei, where she sported a sunflower-adorned costume; the sunflower is regarded as an anti-government symbol in China.  Additionally, models Adriana Lima, Irina Shripova, Julia Belyakova, and Kate Grigorieva have not yet been granted visas to enter the country.

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

Tired of dry, clumpy, flaky lashes?  So are we!  That’s why we decided to shake things up with Rimmel London’s new Shake It Fresh Mascara.  With patented Shake-Shake technology, we are able to enjoy clump-free, smudge-free volume with every application.  Available in Black, Very Black, and Extreme Black, Shake It Fresh Mascara stays moist and lasts longer than normal mascara because its patented shaker system refreshes product only when needed, rather than allowing it to dry out between applications.  The Volume Defining brush has flexible fibers which volumize and separate lashes for a fresh, clean, defined look.

Rimmel London is offering a limited number of lucky Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to SWAG its Shake It Fresh Mascara (msrp $6.99) simply by following them on Instagram (or Facebook if you don’t have) and entering  here. This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only.  Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks from notification.
