CLEVER OR CLUELESS: THE SILVER STRAW?

Now that corporations, such as Walt Disney and Starbucks, are banning single-use plastic straws by 2019, there has been a proliferation of luxury, multi-use surrogates in the market.   Tiffany & Co. has launched several varieties ($250-$350) of its Crazy Straw (pictured) in its Everyday Objects Collection, while Miansai offers simple four-piece sets ($100-$325), fabricated in silver, copper, and brass.  A more practical (and budget-friendly) option comes from Nothing But Straws.  Its eight-piece stainless set ($11) even includes a small cleaning brush.
While we wholeheartedly support the straw ban at Beauty Undercover, we still have to ask … Is the silver straw Clever or Clueless?

WATERMELON JELLY SHEET MASKS FEEL LIKE SUMMER!

Thursday, May 31st, 2018
Nothing reminds us more of summer than slices of fresh watermelon.  That’s why we are eagerly awaiting the launch of Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Masks on Friday, June 1st.  Made with real watermelon, these masks are packed with antioxidants and vitamins.  Featuring centella asiatica to help soothe irritated skin and hyaluronic acid for optimal hydration, the $8 sheet masks are expected to sell-out immediately.  Curated by Sarah Lee and Christine Chang, the K-Beauty incubator, has gone well-beyond the walls of its e-commerce site.  Having launched several other products at Sephora since March last year, this will be the company’s forth collaboration with the retailer.  According to WWD, it is expected that Glow Recipe will do more than $30 million in retail sales in 2018 alone.
