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?

@MizzRiaCena4Lyf / Twitter

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.

@Camila_Cabello / Twitter
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

@lorealmakeup / Instagram

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.

@Camila_Cabello / Twitter

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.

@camila_cabello / Instagram

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.

@intotheloving / Twitter

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.

@itscamilasbaby / Twitter

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.

@camila_cabello / Instagram

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.

@Camila_Cabello / Twitter
“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.

@KISSYMEDICINE / Twitter

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.

@itscamilasbaby / Twitter

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.

@CamilaaNews / Twitter

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.

@camila_cabello / Instagram

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. ????

@camilaplatano / Twitter

Head to ULTA.com to place an order online or risk waiting until they’re available in drug stores nationwide beginning in August 2018.

Fifth Harmony’s Ally Brooke Says She Experienced ‘Mental and Verbal Abuse’ When She Was In the Band

At the peak of their fame, fans saw Fifth Harmony as five young women who were best friends. We now know that that was not the case. Since their breakup, former Fifth Harmony members have come clean about the drama and toxicity behind the scenes. The latest former member to speak out is Ally Brooke.

You may remember Ally Brooke (née Hernandez) as the Mexicana that Simon Cowell considered the “glue that held the group together.” Unfortunately, the pressure of being the peacemaker was no easy task for Ally.

In a recent episode of her new podcast The Ally Brooke Show, Ally Brooke revealed that she “didn’t enjoy” her time in Fifth Harmony. “We will be in the history books. That’s pretty incredible. We had hits, such anthems and great songs,” she said. “But just being honest, because I feel like having my own show calls for me to just be real and open with you guys…I hate saying this. My time in Fifth Harmony, I didn’t enjoy it. I didn’t love it.”

Ally Brooke continued: “It was hard because there was so much going on — so much behind-the-scenes, so much toxicity, so much abuse, so much abuse of power, so much mental abuse, verbal abuse. It’s horrible, and to me it’s a shame, because we were so big. I should have enjoyed myself more. I did so much for the group.”

This isn’t the first time former Fifth Harmony band members have come out and said that the years they spent in the mega-band were traumatic.

In October, Lauren Jauregui said that her time in Fifth Harmony was “traumatizing“. Likewise, Normani has said she was “scarred” from her time in the group–mostly from racist trolls who considered themselves fans of Camilla Cabello. Cabello fans sent Normani “Photoshopped images of her being lynched” and death threats.

Ally Brooke seems to imply that it wasn’t just the pressure of fame, but the group dynamics that were so toxic. “It was tough because I didn’t trust anybody around me, a lot of people that were in our circle,” she said. “It really damaged me for quite some time, and for quite a while. I don’t want to hang onto the negative, but I have to be honest,”

Ultimately, Ally Brooke is grateful for the experience overall. “It changed my life,” she said. It’s a balance of being grateful but also being okay with the fact that things were not okay for me.”

Cardi B Files Trademark For ‘Bardi Beauty’ After Hinting That She Wants to Launch Her Own Makeup Line

Cardi B Files Trademark For ‘Bardi Beauty’ After Hinting That She Wants to Launch Her Own Makeup Line

Cardi B doesn’t stop hustling. Recently, the Bronx-born rapper filed legal documents to trademark the phrase “Bardi Beauty”. That means that Cardi B is thinking of getting into the makeup and beauty game.

So, in essence, Cardi B is planning a full takeover of the beauty industry. And we can’t wait! Cardi B’s past red carpet and photoshoot looks have practically broken the internet with their creativity and innovation.

This trademark filing comes to no surprise to fans who have been closely following the rapper’s business life. Cardi B has been teasing the idea of releasing a beauty line for years. Just last month, Cardi claimed that she wanted to start a haircare line for Afro-Latinas.

Earlier this year, Cardi announced on Instagram: “This year I will be coming out with a hair[care] line that I been working on at home for my hair and my daughter’s.”

“Being Hispanic/Latina don’t make your hair long, don’t make your skin light, or don’t make your face features slim, [e]specially Latin countries from the Caribbean islands,” she further explained on Twitter. “DNA [has] something to do with your hair, not your nationality.

“Bardi Beauty” would be one of many business spin-offs that Cardi would commit her time to. It was only a matter of time before she went the beauty route with Bardi Beauty.

The Grammy-winning rapper already has had massive success collaborating with brands like Reebok, Steve Madden, and Fashion Nova.

Fellow music jefas Rihanna and Selena Gomez have created lucrative beauty brands like Fenty Beauty and Rare Beauty to great fanfare. In fact, creating a beauty brand to go along with her music brand seems like a natural thing for Cardi B to do.

Let’s hope that Bardi Beauty will take the Fenty Beauty route and create products for people of different races, ethnicities, and skin colors.
