Blessed Be! Jennifer Lopez Is Finally Launching That Skincare Line

Just about anyone with a pulse and a heart for makeup knows that Jennifer Lopez established herself as a beauty guru ages ago.

The actress, singer, and business entrepreneur has been an influential part of the beauty industry throughout her decades-long career. Having established dozens of fragrances (the worth sum of which clocks in at a cool a $2 billion), collaborated on a hit makeup line with Inglot and likely inspired hundreds of thousands of women to invest in countless bronzers, there’s no denying that Jennifer Lopez was a beauty influencer long before social media became a thing.

Now, after nearly two years of waiting, Lopez’s new skin-care line is finally about to pop off.

Sunset glow… #JLoBeauty coming soon

A post shared by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on

The “Hustlers” actress announced in December 2018, that she had been working on her own skin-care collection for quite some time. After years of holding our breath for the launch, it looks like we’ll only have to wait just a smidge longer.

In a post to her Instagram page, Lopez dropped the news that J.Lo Beauty is coming soon. In the post, the actress shared two selfies, both of which featured that infamous J.Lo glow, and topped off the look with a caption that teased “Sunset glow… #JLoBeauty coming soon.”

Fans on Instagram poured over the picture and expressed their excitement in the comments section. “Make-up line???” one fan commented. “Skin care products???? YESSSS YESS TO EVERYTHING JEN!!”

“Coming soon?! Need that glow!! Looking gorgeous mama,” another chimed in.

Sadly, Lopez did refrain from sharing the launch date of the products and has yet to reveal what to expect out of the new line.

Which isn’t so surprising since Lopez is the queen of teasers.

Earlier this month, Lopez hinted that she had something in the works related to her beauty brand when she posted a makeup-free video and challenged fans to guess what she was working on. “Woke up this morning feeling extra grateful and excited! 🤍 Want to know why? Comment below if you wanna know what I’m working on,” she wrote.

However, we might just have one hint! According to People a trademark filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office last December, JLo Beauty aims to provide cosmetics and skincare products.

The Long Awaited Trailer To JLo And Maluma’s ‘Marry Me’ Is Finally Here

The Long Awaited Trailer To JLo And Maluma’s ‘Marry Me’ Is Finally Here

One of the year’s biggest collaborations is starting to make more progress after being largely shut down thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic. Of course, we’re talking about the upcoming highly-anticipated Jennifer Lopez film, Marry Me, which also stars Maluma in his acting debut.

Although we still have a while to wait before the movie makes its big screen debut (not until 2021), we’re finally getting our first look at what the duo will look like on screen along with other exciting details about the project.

Marry Me finally has an official trailer and JLo and Maluma fans couldn’t be more excited.

It seems like we’ve been hyped up for this film forever – and thanks to Coronavirus, we kinda have. But finally, Universal has released the teaser for Marry Me, and it reveals a few new details about the film and its cast. Along with J.Lo, the film stars Owen Wilson, Sarah Silverman, and Colombian singer Maluma in his major feature debut.

The film was originally announced last summer and production began in October 2019 but much of it was shut down once the Coronavirus struck. The film is directed by Kat Coiro (It’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaDead to Me) and features original music by Lopez and Maluma, which sounds too perfect to be legal, sorry.

To celebrate the cinematic milestone, López and Maluma have reported that they are recording a full-length soundtrack of original songs. Maluma Baby is hyped from the time he’s spent in the studio with J.Lo (who wouldn’t be?), telling a reporter last year, “It’s been such an amazing experience also working, doing music. I mean we never stop.”

So here’s everything we know about the film so far.

Based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby, the film is described as a “modern love story about celebrity, marriage and social media.” López plays musical sensation Kat Valdez, who agrees to live-stream her marriage with her fellow superstar Bastian (Maluma — fictional or not, this is officially the hottest couple on Planet Earth and we can’t unsee it) in order to boost the sales of their new single and duet, “Marry Me.”

When she finds out that Bastian has been cheating on her, however, she freaks out and decides to marry a stranger in the audience watching: divorced high-school math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson), who was dragged to the event by his daughter. The unexpected sequence of events leads the two down a path toward unexpected true love.

Even with a new movie coming out, both JLo and Maluma have been hard at work in the studio.

Just last month, Maluma surprise released his latest album – PAPI JUANCHO. It’s Maluma’s fifth studio album and was produced alongside longtime collaborators Rude Boyz. Although the album features Maluma’s alter ego as the main star, it also includes several guest appearances from a number of reggaetón royals, including Justin Quiles, Lenny Tavarez, Myke Towers, and Jory Boy. PAPI JUANCHO was made during quarantine between the singer’s hometown of Medellín and Miami, his U.S. base.

Meanwhile, JLo has teased new music in recent weeks. Jennifer Lopez posted a picture with producer Ryan Tedder over the weekend in which she promised that new music is “just around the corner.”

The snap, in which Lopez is sporting dark red lips and a messy up hairdo alongside the OneRepublic leader and veteran songwriter/producer — rocking a black Mad Tasty hat — doesn’t offer much more detail about what the duo are cooking up, but Lopez seems pretty psyched.

“Can u feeeeeel it… new music just around the corner!!” Lopez wrote.

It would be a welcome return for Lopez, who has only released a remix of “If You Had My Love” so far this year, as fans wait for her to announce a release date for her as-yet-untitled ninth studio album. Lopez’s last full-length was 2014’s A.K.A., which featured the singles “I Luh Ya Papi,” “First Love” and “Booty.”

Split End Serums That Will Help Hair Growth And Keep Your Ends From Splitting

Split End Serums That Will Help Hair Growth And Keep Your Ends From Splitting

Astrid Stawiarz / Stringer

Sure, there might be more things peskier than split ends but there’s no doubt they’re a universal issue that haunts us all.

Thanks to dryness, age, heat styling, and even just existing, split ends are a real issue that people around the globe have to deal with and manage every day. As the oldest part of our hair strands, ends need a very particular type of special care. Particularly if you ever want to avoid having those splits ends work their way up the entire shaft of your hair and wreak even more havoc. While snipping off those ends are a surefire way to fix a split end problem, if you’re trying to grow your hair out there are ways to attempt to keep your ends from splitting in the first place.

We scoured the internet for top reviewed split ends. Check out what we found below!

Oribe’s Split End Seal

“My stylist gave me a sample of this to use on my thick, fine, curly, highlighted hair after a particularly strenuous bleach session. I was so impressed, I bought this when the sample ran out.

Any good stylist will tell you, it’s pretty much impossible to actually seal an end once it’s split (beyond making it appear to be sealed for a short period). But it is possible to return moisture and other nutrients to hair that is damaged or close to splitting. And this product is very good at doing that. It seals the hair to keep the good stuff in and protect against future damage from the environment. A little goes a long way if you apply it to wet hair, before applying any other styling products. Seriously, I got six uses out of the sample. It’ll take me a while to run out of the full size bottle.

This stuff really does work miracles on dry hair. The only way I’d ever be able to get rid of all my split ends would be to just shave my head. But that doesn’t mean my hair isn’t healthy. More than one stylist has pointed that out to me. That wouldn’t be the case if I didn’t use quality products like this one.” – Amazon review

Rita HazanTriple Threat Split End Remedy

“My hair deals with a lot of heat styling and hairspray so the ends get a little worse for wear. I’m growing my hair out for my wedding next year and I’m a law student, so I can’t afford to be getting regular haircuts at this point. I got a sample of this product and can’t believe what a difference it made in my hair. I can no longer see the split ends and my hairstyles pretty effortlessly now. I just ordered the full size.”- Sephora review

Moroccanoil Mending Infusion

“LOVE LOVE LOVE Moroccanoil Mending Infusion! This product works great on the ends of my hair that definitely need to be trimmed! It fuses the tips of my hair after styling so I can go longer w out a trim. It makes the ends look healthy & the smell is terrific! I use all of the Moroccanoil products & so far they are working great for me! The only negative thing I can say is that the bottle is made of thick glass which the actual quantity of the product is less than it actually appears to be. However, it takes very little product for the ends of the hair! The product still deserves 5 stars! IF for any reason these products don’t work for you, it has to be that they have been returned “as no longer needed” & possibly tampered with by a dishonest consumer. Amazon will always make things right from my experience. From reviews I’ve read in the past, I felt I needed to add this comment as I have very difficult hair, coarse, frizzy, & unmanageable unless I use an excellent product like ‘Moroccanoil products’!!”- Amazon Review

PATTERN Jojoba Oil Hair Serum

“Love it! Smells like lavender, ahhhh. I love that you can use this on your scalp and hair. It locks in the moisture from the Pattern leave-in so well for super soft and hydrated hair. I’m so happy with everything from this line. I do believe this jojoba oil is a stand out product as well. You can use it in so many ways. I will continue to purchase this and pretty much everything else from this line. Thank you, Ms. Tracee Ellis Ross, you hit the nail on the head!! Can’t wait to see what else is in store for this line.” – Sephora review

Design Essentials Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum

“My hair is natural and I usually go to a salon when I occasionally want to have it flat ironed. I decided to order Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum to do it myself and I already had the Bamboo & silk HCO leave in conditioner that I used to detangle. Wow, these 2 pair together left my hair silky and as straight as if my stylist had dRead more about review stating Love this strengthening serum!” – Site review
