21 Things We’ve Learned About Camila Cabello’s “Havana” Makeup Line Since It Dropped

Leave it to Camila Cabello to become the very first spokeswoman product collaborator with L’Oreal Paris. She’s always finding ways to bring her culture and love for all things Latinx to everything she does. That definitely translates to Cabello’s L’Oreal “Havana” makeup line and we are here for it. Here’s what we know about this makeup line so far.

“I am extremely proud and excited about the ‘Havana’ collection.”

The line is named after her birthplace, Havana, Cuba. It is clear to see in her face and the multiple social media posts that she is very excited about her first makeup line.

All the products range from $9.99 to $14.99, which is accessible.

The packaging screams Daquiris y Cuba Libres with aqua blue ocean water. We love that Camila came out with a line that is affordable and accessible to everyone.

But so many people plan to go broke on the #HavanaCollection.

You can have my next paycheck. It’s a small price to pay to look and feel even a little bit like you, Camila.

Camila stands by the quality of her “natural and gooey” line.

Gooey is better than dry and flaky. For real though, I can’t pronounce a single ingredient in the list, so I really hope she partners with Lush or Tata Harper, too.

Here’s what’s in the collection.

“Havana x Camila Cabello Lip Dew Lip Gloss” | $9.99

And already, the reviews are in and they’re all ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️:

“As someone who doesn’t wear makeup, I found these lip dews to be amazing. I’m a big Camila Cabello fan so I couldn’t pass up on buying these. I bought three different ones; Desnudo, Serendipity, and Lit Up. They all looked nice and light on my lips and the Lit Up lip dew had glitter in it as well.”

One fan has thankfully already swatched them for us. 💄

We are waiting for more fans to show us how it looks on different complexions, but in the meantime, I’m feeling this Spanglish line.

Then, there’s the “Havana x Camila Cabello Eyeshadow” | $9.99

These are creamy shadows available in four sultry shades that you can wear alone or blend together for smokey eye looks. Camila wanted to be sure that the shadows reflected a more natural beauty with a little extra glow-up.

You nailed it, girl. 🙏

Did you notice the names of these shadows?

It’s just so spot on. Once again, Camila, take my money. I want the Control and Oh-na-na. Actually, I need them all.

Camila wanted to make sure her products worked across all skin tones.

In a statement, Camila Cabello said, “I wanted to create products that not only I would personally wear, but that would work well across various skin tones.” Latinxs are white, black and everything in between. We appreciate that, Camila.

Havana x Camila Cabello Sun-Lit Liquid Bronzer | $14.99

The most expensive in her line, these bronzers are probably the only thing you really need for that natural Havana look. “The Sun-Lit Bronzer is hydrating, lightweight, and ultra-blendable for a bronzy glow. Use alone or mix in with foundation for an instant Havana sun-lit glow.”

Camila admits that she isn’t a makeup guru.

She knows she’s not here to show us how to blend green to gold shadows and have dramatic night-time looks. She’s here to make it easy, and thank you, Dios, I don’t have to call my mom to ask her how to use the Havana collection.

So you can finally have Camila’s lips, and smell like Christmas, too.

Since the launch, Cabello has been showing off her collection on her Instagram story, and we’ve just been soaking it all in. 😍

She subtly showed off the line in this iconic meme that we didn’t even notice.

Remember when Cabello asked the world to make a meme of her? Was this product strategy or is Cabello too pure? #TooPure

I repeat: Cabello actually wears this makeup on the regular.

Professional makeup artists are using it and it can be ours too, for just $9.99. 😂

The collection is almost sold out in the U.S.

Look at this cutie lil baby wearing her very own makeup line! If you’re interested in the makeup, you better order it soon, because it’s selling out fast.

Cabello has been back on social media lifting her fans up the way that she does best.

“For me, looking and feeling my best helps fuel my confidence and I hope to inspire other people to feel the same,” she said in a statement. That is the reason she came out with this line, and tbh the reason she exists: to inspire.

And the reactions have been everything.

Die-hard Cabello fans, she could literally do no wrong. We know this because we witnessed her grow from a baby 15 year old and literally do no wrong.

Fans asked for a makeup tutorial so she gave one.

The cat-eye is the most iconic Latina look that has blown up to the mainstream. Thankfully, Cabello can show us how it’s done. She also came out with a liquid brow and felt tip liner as well.

But fans have their own ideas on how to wear the gloss.

Key: don’t let anything but the Havana collection touch your lips ever. Please see the above demonstration to see how one should sip a straw with beauty and grace.

In August 2018, the whole Havana Collection became available internationally.

You don’t have to live in the tropics to own Cabello’s sun-kissed look. This is your new baseline. Revel in it.

21. So go get yours, boo. 💋

The Music Video For New Shawn Mendes And Camila Cabello Hit ‘Senorita’ Is Pure Fire And No Wonder Fans Think Theyre A Couple Like OMG

There is one thing in music that is not up for debate: the Camilizer fandom is one of the strongest. No matter what the pop star is doing, her fans will always show up with full support on social media and irl. That fandom is making power moves again now that Cabello’s new collab “Señorita” with Shawn Mendes is out. In less than 24 hours, the video already had 14 million views.

Camila Cabello got her fandom ready with one tweet and it worked.

Credit: @Camila_Cabello / Twitter

Cabello’s Twitter is a powerful tool. When she tweets, her millions of followers listen. It is clear that she has learned how to harness social media for the betterment of her career and it is paying off. Tbh, she kind of deserves the success she has garnered so far. Like, she skipped her quinces so she could audition for the X Factor and the rest is music history.

Cabello stans are here to tell you that “Señorita” is a song that is here to stay.

No one is surprised to hear that Cabello was able to put out a hit. She is proving herself as a powerful musician. We still can’t get “Havana” out of our heads and it has been out for two years.

Like, this is what the Camilizer fandom is doing the rest of the weekend with this song in the background.

Low key, a lot of people will be giving this song all of their streams this weekend. Who wouldn’t want to spend the next couple days bouncing to this song?

People are crying over the new song because they have been waiting for new music.

Credit: @InZaynFor5H / Twitter

Take some deep breaths and relax. You don’t want to miss any of the music or video because you can’t see or hear over your own sobs. Is it even worth listening if you are crying so intensely?

Fans had theories about how the singers prepared for their intimate moments on screen.

Obviously, you wouldn’t want to have bad breath when you have to kiss someone over and over again. It is also kind of cute that Mendes was so concerned that he ate mints to make sure he had good breath for Cabello.

The video and the passion between the singers is reigniting speculation that they are secretly more than friends.

Credit: @_emgm_ / Twitter

Some people might call it good acting and on-screen chemistry. Camilizers call it them sharing their truth while hiding behind the facade of music and the arts. Whichever it is, they know how to make a convincing couple on the screen.

Here is the full video for Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’s “Señorita.”

Congrats, you two. Seems like you really did the thing with this video.

Here’s How A Goth Makeup Company Is Helping Rebuild Puerto Rico’s Economy After Hurricane Maria

In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, businesses all over the island were devastated by the destruction. Some were able to reopen months, to a year later, while others had to close for good. While more established businesses such as resorts and restaurants had backing to get back on their feet, it was the independent companies that struggled to reopen. Necromancy Cosmetica, however, is thriving after resuming business as usual.

Puerto Rico-based Necromancy Cosmetica a gothic makeup company was closed for four months after Hurricane Maria.

Instagram/@necromancycosmetica

In an interview with Remezcla, Necromancy Cosmetica owners Desiree Rodríguez and Salvador Pérez talked about their joint venture which has a large social media following. The couple launched the brand four years ago but they said they almost had to shut down their store after the hurricane.

“The store was full of mold. It was total chaos,” Rodríguez told the publication. She adds that they had “like two free days. We got to work before we even knew how our families were doing. My family is from the west side of the island, and I didn’t hear from them for almost three weeks.”

The couple said that they had help locally, and abroad during the rebuilding process. They were able to sell their product online while they continued to work on reopening.

Instagram/@hex_des

Like many local businesses after the hurricane, Necromancy Cosmetica has survived because of loyal and proud Puerto Rican customers. While many people might think of colorful and tropical scenes when they think of Puerto Rico but the goth community needs representation. Just because you live on an island doesn’t mean you will look like you live on an island.

Puerto Rico’s economy is struggling as the island continues to recover from a storm that devastated everything and everyone. As the Puerto Rican economy tries to build up, it is the local stores like Necromancy Cosmetica that are giving the island the support it needs. The company might not be donating money to the recovery effort but pumping their money into the local economy creating a stream of tax revenue that the government relies on.

The owners take pride that their makeup line is vegan and cruelty-free.

Instagram/@necromancycosmetica

If you need more reason to check out the company, how about their stance for animals?

“These and all other Necromancy Cosmetica brand lipsticks are made with 100% vegan materials that have never been tested on animals, that means you can rest easy knowing that your wicked lips will always be on the up-and-up if you decide to join the Necromancy cult,” reads the Necromancy Cosmetica website. “Des and Zal work hard from their crypt in Puerto Rico to fulfill all the orders themselves and have high hopes for their independently owned, produced, and distributed non-liquid lipsticks. So take a look at their witchy works and get inspired.”

Necromancy Cosmetica is located at 59 Calle Arzuaga Local #3 Rio Piedras, San Juan, Puerto Rico. Click here for more information on the products.
