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. ????

Sistahs!! ColourPop x Hocus Pocus Is Coming Just In Time for Halloween And I Suggest We Form A Calming Circle

Sistahs!! ColourPop x Hocus Pocus Is Coming Just In Time for Halloween And I Suggest We Form A Calming Circle

Disney

If you were around in the immediate years following the 1993 release of the Halloween classic Hocus Pocus you know how much power the movie has. The Disney film starring Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker gave just about every child watching thrills and chills and followed a trio of evil and hilarious witches who are accidentally raised from the dead by a teenage virgin on the night of Halloween.

Over the years Hocus Pocus has proven to be more than just a movie obsession but also a lifestyle. After all, what is Halloween if you haven’t binged the movie more than once during the month of October?

ColourPop knows the story and that’s likely why they’ve come up with a Hocus Pocus makeup collection that will haunt your dreams until you get your hands on it.

Get ready for some tricks for your at-home Halloween treats this year because ColourPop x Hocus Pocus is almost officially here.

The brand’s latest Halloween collection is inspired by the classic 1993 movie and launches at 10 AM PST on September 30. The limited-edition collection line is made up of false lashes, and an eyeshadow palette with 15 bronze hues. It also comes outfitted with a glitter creme gel eyeliner!

What’s more, the makeup kit comes complete with eyecatching packaging that serves as a shoutout to the three Sanderson sisters and the beloved noble black cat called Thackery Binx.

Perhaps the best part of it all is that the make-up kit includes products with names that heavily reference the best lines in the movie including “Amok! Amok! Amok” and “Gather Round Sisters.”

The new line also includes very Sanderson Sister-chic shades of red lipstick.

The best part? The collection is pretty dang cute AND affordable.

The palette retails at $22, the lipsticks go for $16 each, and at $130, the entire bundle is quite a steal!

Sure, you might be stuck at home this Halloween but there’s no doubt this new collection will enchant the little children in your lives and make you the ball of your COVID-friendly Halloween bash!

Cuba Locks Down Havana To Stop Covid-19 As Cubans Struggle To Afford Everyday Items

Cuba Locks Down Havana To Stop Covid-19 As Cubans Struggle To Afford Everyday Items

Cuba has been one of the hemisphere’s coronavirus success stories — but a sudden outbreak in its capital has brought on a strict, two-week Havana lockdown. Residents of the capital city will be forced to stay-at-home for 15-days, while people from other parts of the island ill be prohibited from visiting – essentially sealing off the city from the outside world.

Meanwhile, the Coronavirus pandemic has pummeled the island’s economy and has left many everyday items out of reach for many Cubans. Some are being forced to turn to ‘dollar stores,’ where the U.S. dollar is once again accepted as hard currency – something now allowed since 1993.

Officials have ordered a strict 15-day lockdown of Havana in an effort to stamp out the spread of Coronavirus in the capital.

Aggressive anti-virus measures, including closing down air travel, have virtually eliminated COVID-19 in Cuba with the exception of Havana, where cases have surged from a handful a day to dozens daily over the last month. 

A daily curfew from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. was instituted Tuesday. Most stores are barred from selling to shoppers from outside the immediate neighborhood in order to discourage people from moving around the city. 

Some Havana residents complained that the measures were complicating the already difficult task of buying food in a city hit by constant shortages and endless lines for a limited supply of basic goods. Some provinces that saw no new cases for weeks have begun detecting them in recent days, often linked to travelers from Havana.

The start of in-person classes for students was also indefinitely delayed in Havana, while schools opened normally in the rest of Cuba.

To enforce the lockdown, police stationed on every road leaving Havana are supposed to stop anyone who doesn’t have a special travel permit, which is meant to be issued only in extraordinary circumstances.

Under the strict new lockdown measures, anyone who is found in violation of the stay-at-home orders face fines of up to $125 per violation, more than triple the average monthly wage.

The island nation had seemed to manage the pandemic well – with fewer cases than many of its Caribbean neighbors.

The island of 11 million people has reported slightly more than 4,000 confirmed coronavirus cases, with fewer than 100 deaths, one of the lowest rates in the region.

The government made face masks obligatory in the early stages of its pandemic response, and in the first months of the crisis police aggressively fined and even jailed people for violations. 

That vigilance slackened somewhat as Havana moved out of the first, strictest phase of lockdown in July, when public transportation restarted and people returned to work. The number of coronavirus cases then began to climb again.

Meanwhile, the Cuban economy has tanked and residents are struggling to make ends meet now more than ever before.

The pandemic has hit the island’s economy particularly hard. Much of the island relies on agricultural and tourism – two sectors that have been decimated by Coronavirus.

As a result, many Cubans are struggling to afford everyday items. Rice – which used to sell for about $13 Cuban pesos per kilo is now going for triple that.

In an effort to allow Cubans better access to goods, the government has began recognizing the U.S. dollar as official currency. This is extraordinary as mere possession of U.S. dollars was long considered a criminal offense. However, the measure draws a line between the haves and have-nots, one that runs even deeper than it did before the pandemic.
