2017 started off a little sh*tty and shady for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.

Accusations have been flying since Mariah Carey’s unfortunate performance on the New Year’s Eve programming staple went awry, with armchair critics at home snarkily tweeting that she was phoning it in—and Carey’s camp insisting that producers set her up to fail.

“Well, happy new year. We can’t hear,” Carey, looking rather stunning in a sparkly nude bodysuit, told the crowd at the New Year’s event after only the prerecorded portion of “Emotions”. “I’ll just get through the moment, OK?”

“We Belong Together” didn’t go any better, and Carey looked and sounded miffed when the music started and she said, “This is the album version, so I’m just going to let you put this thing on me and sing along.”

TMZ was quick to report on Jan. 1 that they had been told that Carey’s party insisted to producers that the artist’s earpiece was malfunctioning and she couldn’t go out there with that piece of equipment, but the producers figured a screw-up would be good for ratings and they sent her out there anyway.

Mariah obviously would never let one bad incident in her bedazzling career ruin the holidays by casually tweeting afterward,”Sh*t happens…Have a happy and healthy new year everybody!…Here’s to making more headlines in 2017.” But that was not the end of the discussion.

“We told them [the stage managers] that the in-ears were not working 10 minutes before the performance,” Carey’s manager, Stella Bulochnikov, told Billboard afterward. Moreover, Bulochnikov said, ABC just went ahead and aired the botched performance on the West Coast, too.

“After the show,” she continued to Billboard, “I called [Dick Clark Productions’] Mark Shimmel and I said, ‘What the f**k happened?’ He said, ‘Let me call you back,’ then called me back and confirmed the in-ears were not working and asked if I would make a joint statement. I said, ‘No way.’

“I asked him to cut the West Coast feed. He said he could not do that. I asked him why would they want to run a performance with mechanical glitches unless they just want eyeballs at any expense … It’s not artist-friendly, especially when the artist cut her vacation short as a New Year’s Eve gift to them.”

Dick Clark Productions, of course, denied setting Carey up to fail.

“As the premier producer of live television events for nearly 50 years, we pride ourselves on our reputation and long-standing relationships with artists,” DCP said in a statement released Sunday to E! News. “To suggest that DCP, as producer of music shows including the American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, New Year’s Rockin’ Eve and Academy of Country Music Awards, would ever intentionally compromise the success of any artist is defamatory, outrageous and frankly absurd.”

“In very rare instances,” DCP continued, “there are of course technical errors that can occur with live television, however, an initial investigation has indicated that DCP had no involvement in the challenges associated with Ms. Carey’s New Year’s Eve performance. We want to be clear that we have the utmost respect for Ms. Carey as an artist and acknowledge her tremendous accomplishments in the industry.”

Once again, Carey turned her attention elsewhere with this tweet during the latest episode of Mariah’s World.

https://twitter.com/MariahCarey/status/815750863658618881

“DCP knew her ear piece wasn’t working and sent her on stage regardless,” the source said. “It was sloppy and unprofessional on their part. Their statement says they didn’t intentionally sabotage her, which [her team] agrees with. It doesn’t apologize for failing to do a good job producing her performance, which is what happened. Her team knows that there are sometimes technical issues with live performances.

Meanwhile, a very notable person has weighed in on the “disastrous” performance. Sort of. Jennifer Lopez, who Mariah Carey famously claimed not to know, threw a little shade of her own in the form of an Instagram comment like.

The internet obviously immortalised the shade with this screenshot.

Emma Watson Unveils Hidden Singing Talent In Iconic Video Teaser http://www.lipstiq.com/2017/137308/emma-watson-unveils-hidden-singing-talent-in-iconic-video-teaser http://www.lipstiq.com/2017/137308/emma-watson-unveils-hidden-singing-talent-in-iconic-video-teaser#respond Tue, 03 Jan 2017 03:41:54 +0000 http://www.lipstiq.com/?p=137308

Beauty And The Beast isn’t called a tale as old as time for nothing. The Disney classic, inspired by a traditional fairytale, has always been one of the most iconic animated films ever, from the mesmerizing talking home appliances to Belle’s feminist, not-just-a-pretty-face character that finally broke free of the same old Disney princess tropes in this reworked version of the live action movie.

British actress, activist and basically every contemporary women’s role model, some might wonder what can’t the Harry Potter starlet do? Born as Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson, the A-lister has revealed yet another hidden talent of hers in a newly released Beauty And The Beast teaser video, where she plays the iconic Disney character, Belle.

Watch what happens below:

D*mn, who knew? Girl can really sing! In the 30-second clip, Emma Watson slayed when she croons the animated film’s classical signature sound, Something There in perfect pitch. It’s clearly one of the central songs in the movie, signifying the moment when both Belle and the Beast realize there’s something in their hearts they hadn’t seen before.

Originally performed by Paige O’Hara for the 1991 animated film, it seems like Watson has worked hard to make her proud. The Harry Potter actress previously talked about her singing lessons in a Facebook post. “It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to Be Our Guest and sing Something There,” she wrote last year. “My six year old self is on the ceiling – heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can’t wait for you to see it. Emma xx.”

We’re smiling ear to ear over this baby news!

Pink just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Jameson Moon Hart on December 26, 2016. She announced her bundle of joy’s entrance into the world on Instagram. The “Just Like Fire” singer and hubs Carey Hart also share a 5-year old daughter, Willow Sage Hart.

She captioned the intimate mother-son moment, “Jameson Moon Hart 12.26.16”

And as it turns out, the couple has always wanted to name their son Jameson. In a 2010 interview with Access Hollywood, Pink explained, “My dad’s name is James, and my brother’s name is Jason. [Carey and I] are both Irish, Carey’s middle name is Jason, and Jameson – we like whiskey. That’s a no brainer.”

Pink kept much of her second pregnancy under the radar, keeping the exciting news a secret until mid-November. The proud mama announced she was expecting on Instagram by posting this photo of her little girl embracing an undeniable baby bump.

“I love being a mama,” Pink explained on Good Morning America. “I made a choice a long time ago that I was going to have a successful family and that is my absolute number one goal in life.”

She continued while laughing, “I feel like I have two kids right now. I would like a third. No, I want to say that Carey Hart’s an awesome husband and a really good dad, but he’s also like a second child.”

Congratulations, proud parents!

J.Lo & Drake Just Made Things Instagram Official With This Post http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/137097/j-lo-drake-just-made-things-instagram-official-with-this-post http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/137097/j-lo-drake-just-made-things-instagram-official-with-this-post#respond Wed, 28 Dec 2016 08:33:35 +0000 http://www.lipstiq.com/?p=137097

What is UP, Hollywood?!

If you guys heard reports on Jennifer Lopez and Drake dating and wondering if it’s really true, you can stop wondering now. The pair has officially put all dating rumours to rest on their respective accounts with this picture about an hour ago.

A photo posted by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on

According to The Sun, the music superstars are officially dating – making them pop’s latest power couple. With Drake having recently turned 30 and J. Lo aged 47, it puts a 17-year age gap between the pair. But as word of their romance spreads across Hollywood there is one person who isn’t as pleased – Drake’s ex Rihanna.

Rihanna and Drake only recently ended the latest leg of their long, drawn-out love affair and the news that he has already moved on (let alone with one of her friends in the industry) has not gone down well with her. I mean, she’s officially unfollowed J. Lo on Instagram. Talk about salty.

Photo: Style Caster

A source revealed: “Jen and Drake have tried to keep their romance under wraps by suggesting they are just working together, but the truth is they are an item. People in Rihanna’s circle are saying she is very unhappy about the whole thing. Only a few months ago she and Drake were still together.”

J. Lo and Drake are both newly single after the singer split from backing dancer Caspar Smart after four years together, while Drake’s on-off romance with Rihanna is thought to have ended in October. And they’ve been spending plenty of time together recently.

Look who rolled up to my show tonight to say hi!! @champagnepapi #lovehim #jlovegas #ALLIHAVE

A photo posted by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on

The rapper paid a visit to her Las Vegas residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino twice in one week. Lopez uploaded a snap of the pair cosying up together backstage alongside the caption: “Look who rolled up to my show tonight to say hi! @champagnepapi #lovehim #jlovegas #ALLIHAVE”.

The couple attempted to play down romantic speculation by claiming they have merely hooked up for a music collaboration – but I’m pretty sure this Instagram post by Drake says it all.

A photo posted by champagnepapi (@champagnepapi) on

There is now talk that the pair may spend New Year’s Eve in Vegas together after J. Lo cancelled her million dollar gig at a Miami nightclub for December 31.

I don’t know about you but I’m pretty psyched that they’re together!

We all were excited to hear news that famous Malaysian rock band Estranged would be performing at the Apple Music Christmas Festival in London this Christmas. But sadly, now it has been confirmed that the trio was scammed by a local con artist and the Apple Music Christmas Festival in fact does not even exist.

As per the earlier reports, Estranged was supposed to perform in London with other big shots in the music industry such as Metallica and Radiohead. But, later on the band released a statement via their lawyer stating that there was no truth to the offer they were made.

The statement issued by Estranged’s lawyer quoted, “We regret to inform you that we have been misinterpreted by a con artist and have just discovered that the said Apple Music festival in London does not in fact exist.”

The band also claimed that initially they were hesitant to make this news public as it might damage the band’s image, but later on they wanted to publicise the news so that other musicians and local artists can be more vigilant and careful of these con artists and not fall into traps such as this one.

Charlie Puth Dumps Bella Thorne Over Emotional Twitter Rant http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/136810/charlie-puth-dumps-bella-thorne-over-emotional-twitter-rant http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/136810/charlie-puth-dumps-bella-thorne-over-emotional-twitter-rant#respond Fri, 23 Dec 2016 04:40:46 +0000 http://www.lipstiq.com/?p=136810

We honestly hope Bella Thorne knows what she’s doing in this prickly world!

Just days after being photographed together with Charlie Puth for the first time at 2016 Y-100 Jingle Ball Concert in Miami over the weekend, the We Don’t Talk Anymore singer has called off his budding romance with the 19 year old actress in a series of twitter rants last night. Talk about whirlwind romance.

3B84A8CB00000578-4059472-image-a-33_1482431752107

The 25-year-old pop star was apparently upset after fans pointed out that there’s an overlap between the time he started seeing Bella while she is still with Tyler Posey, who she has been dating since September 2016. We guess Charlie started questioning his relationship status with Bella after she tweeted two poignant pictures with her former flame yesterday, where she wrote “taking a trip down memory lane” in the caption.

Devastated, the Youtube star who once tweeted about the actress giving him “the kiss of his life”, did not hold back as he took to Twitter to let fans know that he is done with Bella Thorne.

Though he didn’t directly mention the Disney actress, the Grammy nominee expressed sympathy for Tyler Posey in his next set of tweets. “No one should have their heart messed with like this, and I’m not going to be in the middle of it,” he wrote. “I don’t know Tyler personally, but I know he shouldn’t be treated this way.”

Aww, poor guy!

Bella did not respond to the series of tweets but did tell fans on Wednesday night that she and Tyler never lived together. The former Disney Channel star corrected rumors about herself and Tyler Posey in a tweet, “Haha yeah and me and Ty never lived together. We just were always together. Rumors rumors can’t always believe the media.”

Photo: Daily Mail

She also mentioned that there’s nothing going on between Tyler and her anymore, ’cause they broke up two weeks ago. So technically (and indirectly), Bella is telling the world how she’s just using Charlie as a rebound. “Ty and I have been broken up for like over two weeks and charlie and I ARENT DATING we are friends.” Ouch! You don’t say that to someone who you’ve been heavily leading on publicly.

Bella Thorne, don’t you think it’s a little crowded for three people to fit on your throne of lies? We can’t keep up! The cunning actress has yet to explain what is REALLY going on with either men in her life. Shockingly, two weeks earlier, she posted a collage of herself surrounded by both Charlie Puth and Tyler Posey on Instagram.

Will she ever speak out about this situation, or will she start dating girls next? Only time will tell.

Beyoncé Sued Over ‘Drunk In Love’ Music Video http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/136535/beyonce-sued-over-drunk-in-love-music-video http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/136535/beyonce-sued-over-drunk-in-love-music-video#respond Wed, 21 Dec 2016 03:34:26 +0000 http://www.lipstiq.com/?p=136535

Gather round, Beyhive. Your queen’s under attack.

Beyoncé is being sued by clothing designer Dwayne Walker over the use of the Roc-A-Fella logo in her 2013 music video for “Drunk in Love”. According to court documents reviewed by Billboard, Walker claimed that his deisgn provided the basis of the logo for Jay Z, Damon Dash and Kareem “Biggs” Burke’s record label in 1995. And now he’s coming after the queen supreme for “impermissibly and prominently displaying” the image in her video.

In the video, which racked up 400 million views on YouTube, the logo appears briefly in her hand. So briefly that you’re sure to miss it too – it’s on Jay’s infamous Roc chain hanging around his neck and it shows up for less than a second at minutes 5:20 and 5:28 in the video. Check it out below:

Though it’s Jay’s chain and he’s the one seen wearing it, Beyoncé is the only one named in Walker’s suit. Talk about pettiness, huh?

Walker first tried to sue the Universal Music Group bosses, Jay-Z and his business partner Damon Dash in 2012 for $7 million (£5.6 million) in unpaid royalties. All parties maintained an in-house designer came up with the logo – and not Walker – and a judge dismissed the case in September, citing a lack of evidence.

‘This leaves only plaintiff’s own self-serving testimony that he drafted the contract, that he and Dash signed it, and that he lost track of it in 1998,’ US District Judge Andrew Carter wrote in his ruling.

Judge Carter also said waiting five years to file a copyright claim was too long – and he should have brought proceedings against Roc-A-Fella within a three-year window.

It’s not the first time Beyonce and Jay-Z have faced litigation over Drunk In Love. Back in December last year, the Manhattan Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit from Hungarian artist Monika Miczura, who claimed her voice was sampled in the track.

The suit was first reported by TMZ. Beyonce has yet to issue a statement on the matter.

Camila Cabello’s Exit From Fifth Harmony Gets Messier With This Statement http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/136414/camila-cabellos-exit-from-fifth-harmony-gets-messier-with-this-statement http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/136414/camila-cabellos-exit-from-fifth-harmony-gets-messier-with-this-statement#respond Tue, 20 Dec 2016 03:03:43 +0000 http://www.lipstiq.com/?p=136414

It feels like the end of 2016 is all about messy breakups – relationships, bands, you know the drill.

As news progress, it turns out that Camila Cabello’s exit from Fifth Harmony is now a he said, she said situation. ICYMI, Fifth Harmony announced on Sunday that Camila had notified her former bandmates about quitting via a representative, a sorta shady move which then prompted Camila to share her side of the situation.

Camila slammed accusations that she planned to leave Fifth Harmony without talking to the girls, writing on Instagram that her team’s involvement in her departure was “simply not true.” She expressed feeling “shocked,” adding, “I did not intend to end things with Fifth Harmony this way.”

Now, multiple sources have reported to E! News that Fifth Harmony was struggling with internal conflict for quite a while.

“They tried several times to sit down with her to talk things out. They didn’t want her to leave,” an insider shares. “They even had a group therapist come but Camila never showed up to the meetings. She only cared about advancing her solo career and didn’t have conversations with anyone or try to work things out.”

But a separate source connected to the “Work From Home” singers claims Cabello did take steps to mitigate the tension between them. “Camila had multiple meetings with the group in the past, including with intermediaries, however they were unproductive,” the source explains.

Photo: Billboard

As for whether or not Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane Hansen, Lauren Jauregui and Normani Kordei knew about Camila’s impending exit, all signs point to a yes.

Another source insists that, “Fifth Harmony knew back in November that Camila was going to leave. They were informed by her management that her last show would be Dec. 18.” The second insider also said the remaining bandmates were under a similar impression, and Camila recently “spoke with them on an individual basis.”

If this seems all too familiar, it’s because One Direction went through basically the same kind of disbandment drama last year after Zayn Malik’s departure. But of course, if we were to follow that formula, things aren’t going to look so good for the remaining members of Fifth Harmony…

Fifth Harmony has yet to respond publicly to Cabello’s latest statement.

Our favourite time of the year is right around the corner and the air is filled with Christmas carols and merry jingles!

Photo: USA Today College

Santa, if you’re reading this, we promise we’ve been good this year. Except for a few minor blunders along the way… but hey, we’re just a couple of kids hitting a rite of passage (quarter life crisis, amirite?). As ’tis the season of giving, the Lipstiq team is fervently hoping that you’ll leave any of these babies on our wishlists under the tree this year:

1) Carmen‘s Wishlist:

output_12K4bY

1. Sony a6300 Mirrorless Camera, RM5499 – As an avid traveller, I love taking pictures to document my adventures. Though I’ve caught the travelbug fever, be it for business or leisure, I have yet to own a substantial camera to document my adventures. The Sony a6300 Mirrorless Camera is a mid-range camera that comes with a 24-megapixel APSC sensor, 4K video and a powerful auto focus system. Love, in other words.

2. Black Speckle Planner, Mossery, RM117.82 – You should know one thing about me – I’m impossible at keeping my life in order and the worst at remembering anything. The Black Speckle Planner by Mossery isn’t just pretty, but it’s definitely a #musthave for keeping track of my appointment, to-do lists and Tinder dates. Also, with a planner this pretty, I’m pretty sure my efficiency rate will up itself by at least 40% percent.

3. Lippie Kit in Too and From, Colourpop, RM134.27 –  Anyone who knows me knows that my Colourpop obsession is REAL. I’ve got a sizeable Colourpop collection that is embarrassing as it is, but my obsession with lipsticks perseveres. The To and From Lippie Kit features mauve and plum hues that are definitely right up my alley and I have to have it! #SantaCanYouHearMe?

4. Shabby Chic Apothecary Chest, Etsy, RM8116.88 –  Owning an apothecary chest of drawers have always been something that I dream of having. I’ve been on the hunt for an apothecary style chest of drawers for the longest time to store my hoard of makeup and skincare all in one place but I’m also particular on how I want it to look like. However, I’ve finally found one that I really like! But that price tag is killing me though..

5. Lulu Frost Zodiacs Gemini + Air Ring, approx. RM1454.54 – What can I say? I’m a proud Gemini, and this gold ring adorned with sapphire stars is gorgeous. I’d totally buy myself this coz this Gemini’s gotta get her bling on. But you know, it makes it all the more special if it’s gifted to me by someone else.. #SeriouslySantaComeThruAlready

2) Nad Dardin‘s Wishlist:

output_6LjhNO

1. Sugar Rush, Fresh,  RM230 – This holiday gift set by Fresh is technically all I need for baby smooth and soft skin. The gentle exfoliating mask and body polish is one of my favourites as it instantly softens and smooths my skin towards a radiant #IWokeUpLikeThis complexion. Made from natural sugar, they’re both a combination of real brown sugar crystals and precious essential oils for me to scrub-a-dub-dub dull skin away. What’s more, the gift set comes with one of the best lip treatments EVER (IMO).

2. Beauty Elixir Holiday Set, Caudalie, RM195 – The Beauty Elixir is known to be Caudalie‘s cult favourite – and now it’s on my cult favourite list as well. Formulated with clarifying ingredients and grape extracts, I’ve come to love this anti-dullness elixir to prep or set my face before and after makeup. The Gentle Buffing Cream works wonders as it gently cleanses, purifies and stimulates the cell renewal process for my skin.  

3. Nike Air Max Thea Ultra Premium in Night Maroon, RM519 – I’ve been eyeing this pair of Nike Air Max Thea Ultra Premium Shoes for months. The Air Max Thea Ultra Premium is made of premium leather and textile upper for durability and a visible Max Air heel unit for superb cushioning. Also, the Night Maroon colour is major LOVE and would go well with most of what I have in my closet. *Bats eyelashes at Santa*

4. Skagen Mini Kolding Leather Bucket Bag, RM1,199 – Okay, so I might have one too many bucket bags but, this one is a bucket bag that I definitely need. The Skagen Mini Kolding Leather Bucket Bag is the perfect blend between function and elegance. It’s made of smooth leather, the twin grab handles makes the bag super durable and easy to manage with one inner slide pocket.

5. Epices Et Délicies Candle, 190G, Dyptique, RM295 – I’m a fan of candles and festive scents in my home. Exclusively curated for the holidays, this baby will have your space smelling like momma’s kitchen when she’s baking for Christmas. Epices Et Délicies is loosely translated to Delicious Spices so be prepared to feast your senses with warm gingerbread notes intermingling with deliciously fragrant honey laced in with hints of star anise.

3) Nadee Mode‘s Wishlist:

output_f0roU2

1. Lip Vex in Dazzling, Sigma Beauty, approx. RM35 – With all the matte lippies on the market, I’m starting to gravitate towards more shimmery and glossy lippies. Sigma Beauty’s lip glosses as the packaging is super easy to stuff in a clutch or purse and the consistency has the right amount of thickness when I glide it on. I especially love the Lip Vex in Dazzling for its bronze gold shade that’s super pigmented and provides a completely opaque coverage.

2. Coldplay’s A Head Full Of Dreams Tour Live in Bangkok, from RM642 – Coldplay played a huge role in helping me get through my depression years. Though I’ve grown on to greener pastures since then, the band still sits in a very special place in my heart and is always on my go to playlist when I need the pick me up. So, Santa, I’ve been such a good girl this year and I need tickets (plus airfare) to this, please kthxbye.

3. Onyx Studio 3 Speakers, RM672 – The Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 3 is a full-featured and portable Bluetooth speaker that delivers powerful audio playback for the person who needs to get their jam on always (me). This baby will let you enjoy music for up to 5 hours of playtime (thanks to the rechargeable battery) and it also lets you wirelessly connect two Harman Kardon Wireless Dual Sound enabled speakers together to elevate your music listening experience.

4. Metallic Multi Dot Dress, Kate Spade –  This dress by Kate Spade is from the label’s Holiday collection and it is every bit as luxurious as it seems. The fit, fabric and colours are stunningly perfect for so many occasions and I absolutely love that you dress it up or down to suit the occasion. Made from silk and metallic, this pretty colourful polka-dotted garment is tailor-made for holiday parties. All I’d need is a pair of metallic heels to hit the streets with!

5. Nike Air Max Thea SE in Metallic Red Bronze, RM479 – This specific pair of shoes from Nike literally broke the internet in these past couple of months. It’s been a big year for everything Rose Gold (thanks to Apple’s iPhone 6s) and this pair has been sold out a few times on Nike.com but I can’t seem to shake off this strong desire to own this baby and strut my stuff with some shiny and pretty new kicks. A girl needs to get her #shoegame on, y’know?

4) Mimo Vinci‘s Wishlist:

1. DeLonghi Distinta ECI341 Coffee Machine in Copper, now at RM999 – I love cappuccinos but I’m starting to resent having to settle for a less than immaculate cup of RM15 cappuccino or those measly 3in1 packets to whip up a fakecino at home. This DeLonghi Distinta Coffee Machine in Copper is not only a handsome sight, but it also has a cappuccino system that mixes steam, air and milk to delivery that creamy froth for cappuccinos or lattes.

2. Nike Reverie Club Training Bag in Purple Dynasty, RM669 – Whether I’m heading to the gym or a weekend outing, the Nike Reverie Club Training Bag makes for the perfect chic carry on. It has got a lot of storage compartments and versatile carrying options, making for a very functional and stylish choice of a bag. Also, it fits my laptop, trainers and other stuff I need perfectly.

3. Cooling Gel Eye Mask, RM35 – Say what you will but, this is definitely on my #musthave list. Why? Because the whole world doesn’t need to know I’ve partied the night away or simply had a long night. Stick this in the fridge for about 20 minutes and slap this on before continuing with your morning skin care regime.

4. Mini Daily Defense & Nightly Repair Set, Kiehls, RM290 – The Mini Daily Defense & Nightly Repair Set by Kiehls has everything I need in combatting fatigue in the mornings and getting my daily dose of repairs during the night. The holiday season is always hectic for me and maintaining good skin has never been easier with Kiehls. The midnight recovery oil is my absolute favourite as it is literally a miracle in a vial.

5. The POREfessional Face Primer, Benefit, RM60 – The POREfessional Face Primer quickly minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin. I need this priming phenomenon to keep everything in place and create a smooth canvas to use throughout the day while mattifying the shine and touch up problem areas. The formula is also lightweight and glides on smoothly.

Seriously, Santa. It’s time to come through already.
