Aries - Calm your farm - more cosmetics are coming. Look for a sign to make sure you buy the right one.
Cancer - Don't get crabby if you're favourite lipstick is sold out. There's a new one coming your way - with your name on it!
Scorpio - Current highlighters not doing it for you? Put that stinger away, a blinding highlight is about to hit!
Has old Tabby gone mad? Nope, I'm just in the thrall of the latest trend. Astrological-inspired cosmetics are going supernova! Brand after brand is bringing out collections, each with their own take - and we are loving it! So what's out there to get all starry eyed over? Check these out.
It's not the first time Kathleen Lights has put something astrological to her name. Previous collections with ColourPop have seen her release astrologically named products before, but she's never given us a galaxy of options... until now. Her latest collection - 'The Zodiac Collection' - has everything you need to create a gorgeous face of colour, including an eye palette, Lux Lipsticks, Super Shock Highlighters, and Supernova Shadow.
Followers of astrology will know that Mercury in retrograde can lead to... not the best of times. Some say it's more likely to cause you to get the grumps with loved one. It's not a good time to sign contracts. You don't want to set up a new business or launch a new facet of a business. As for electronics? If they're going to have a meltdown it'll be during this time. (Note to self - keep water bottle away from laptop.) Poor old Mercury, it gets a lot of grief for moving backwards, which - FUN FACT - it actually doesn't go backwards, it just appears to. It's a whole time/space/science/astronomy thing that you can read more about, along with why people are interesting in Mercury retrograde, here. Whether you're a believer or not, one good thing has come from Mercury in retrograde and that's Essie releasing two new polishes. 'Keep Calm' and 'Mercury On'. Infused with celestial pearl particles, it's said they'll help keep the bad vibes at bay. Either way, they're gorgeous and looking at them any time of day, week, year, time will give you a case of the happies.
