Kylie Jenner has teased the launch of her first-ever sunscreen for her skincare range Kylie Skin.

The billionaire beauty mogul took to Instagram to showcase the new product, dubbed the Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Face Sunscreen, which the 22-year-old claimed was a totally weightless formula.

“Shhh new product coming soon,” she wrote alongside a snap of the sunscreen, featuring the brand’s signature white and blush pink colourway, before spilling more details in a follow-up post.

“Introducing your new best friend,” Kylie shared in the caption. “My face sunscreen is too good i had to tease. this formula is weightless, invisible, and soo smooth, no white residue. it’s so important to wear face sunscreen everyday and this one is just a dream. details coming soon @kylieskin.”

While the bottle comes in a small 50ml tube, it’s not yet known if larger sizes will be available, or when the sunscreen will be launched.

The reality star is still heavily involved in her Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin brands, despite selling a majority stake for $600 million (£463 million) in her business to American multinational beauty giant Coty in November.

And sunscreen is just the beginning of Kylie’s plans for her beauty brand, as it was reported earlier this month that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has filed a trademark for Kylie Hair as well as Kylie Con, Kylie Kon, and Kylie Museum.

Kylie Jenner insists ‘nothing will change’ at Kylie Cosmetics following Coty deal

Kylie Jenner has insisted the running of Kylie Cosmetics will remain the same following her deal with Coty.

The reality TV star started her brand with a range of lip kits in 2015 and went on to launch Kylie Cosmetics the following year, with the company selling eyeshadows, concealers, lipsticks, and eyebrow pencils, as well as a line of skincare formulas.

In November, Kylie announced she had sold a 51 per cent stake, worth $600 million (£463 million), in her company to Coty, the American multinational beauty giant which also owns brands such as Clairol, Max Factor, OPI, Rimmel, and Wella.

Speaking about the deal in a cover interview with U.S. Harper’s Bazaar magazine, the 22-year-old explained that it will allow her to focus on creative and communications efforts for the brand as she, her mother Kris Jenner, and Coty executives look for opportunities to expand the business.

“I think it was just time,” Kylie said. “I mean, we have a great team. But it’s me and my mom kind of leading the pack, which will still be the case. Nothing’s going to change. But, hopefully, we can expand and get a big infrastructure behind Kylie Cosmetics and go worldwide and get more amazing people on the team to expand the business.”

Kris added that her daughter serves many different roles in the business, while she acts as the chief operating officer (COO).

“Kylie does all of the creative stuff – she’s the CEO, CMO, CCO,” the 64-year-old stated. “She’s been so amazing, the way she has grown this company. I’m like the COO. I help keep everything running behind the scenes. But she had this vision when she was 15, and it’s been remarkable to watch it come to life, to step back and see it evolve.”

Kylie Jenner is teaming up with her 23-month-old daughter Stormi Webster to create Kylie Cosmetics’ Valentine’s Day 2020 collection.

On Thursday night, representatives for the cosmetics brand revealed their first collaboration for 2020 was with Stormi by sharing a picture of the youngster sat at a table looking at concept art for the upcoming collection as adults watch on.

In the picture, packaging for the line can be seen, showing a pink box decorated with colourful butterflies and the word “Stormi” written in capital letters in a glittery purple font.

“First collaboration of 2020 coming soon,” they wrote in the caption.

Kylie shared the same photo on her personal Instagram page and wrote “coming soon” followed by a blushing face, purple heart, and butterfly emojis.

Details for the products in the collection were not revealed, but paperwork showing designs for a lip kit and a nine-pan eyeshadow palette can be seen in the picture.

The butterfly packaging is a nod to Kylie and Stormi’s father Travis Scott’s mutual love of the creatures. They both have butterfly tattoos and Stormi’s nursery is decorated with butterfly motifs.

The range may be Stormi’s first foray into the family business, but her 22-year-old mother is no stranger to tapping family members for a collaboration. She’s teamed with half-sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian on singular make-up collections and with mother Kris Jenner for a Mother’s Day collection in 2018.

At the end of 2019, it was announced that Kylie had sold a $600 million (£458 million) stake in her cosmetics business to beauty giant Coty. After the news of the deal broke, Kris told CNBC: “(Kylie) talks about it all the time. Twenty years from now she sees herself doing this and maybe passing it down to her daughter (Stormi).”

Kim Kardashian has set the record straight after fans noticed she was wearing what appeared to be her original engagement ring in a campaign image.

The reality star flaunted an array of stunning jewels in recent snaps promoting her new KKW fragrance, Diamonds Collection, with her eagle-eyed followers quick to notice she was wearing both engagement rings in the shoot, including the 20-carat emerald-cut rock she was given by her husband Kanye West in 2016, months before it was stolen when she was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel.

Addressing the sudden return of the jewel, Kim told Entertainment Tonight that jeweller Lorraine Schwartz had made her a replica.

“I borrowed all jewellery from Lorraine Schwartz. It was nice to borrow it all and nice to give it back to her,” she said. “She always knows the cut and everything that I really wanted. So, when I want to wear something, I’ll borrow it from her for the day… There is a replica around. A little fake that I’ll borrow from her sometimes that she made. A really nice one. It looks really nice.”

Kim also took the opportunity during the interview to congratulate her sister Kylie Jenner amid the news that bosses at Coty recently acquired 51 per cent of Kylie’s brands, Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin, for $600 million (£464 million).

Dismissing any speculation of a rivalry between herself and Kylie, the 39-year-old commented: “I’m so proud of her. To think in her early 20s, she built a business off of something that she first was insecure about and finding confidence and, you know, just tapping into that and figuring out how to make an amazing product and just being true to herself and doing what she loves to do, that’s so inspiring and so amazing and I’m so proud of her.”

In addition, Kim revealed that Kylie, 22, had wanted to sell her business “for a long time” and made the decision to sell just over half of it “about a year ago”.

Kylie Jenner has sold a $600 million (£463 million) stake in her beauty business to executives at Coty.

The reality TV star started her brand with a range of lip kits in 2015 and went on to launch Kylie Cosmetics the following year, with the company selling eyeshadows, concealers, lipsticks, and eyebrow pencils, as well as a line of skincare formulas.

Now, Kylie has sold a 51 per cent stake in her company to Coty, the American multinational beauty giant which also owns brands such as Clairol, Max Factor, OPI, Rimmel, and Wella.

“I’m excited to partner with Coty to continue to reach even more fans of Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin around the world,” the 22-year-old said in a statement on Monday. “I look forward to continuing the creativity and ingenuity for each collection that consumers have come to expect and engaging with my fans across social media. This partnership will allow me and my team to stay focused on the creation and development of each product while building the brand into an international beauty powerhouse.”

Coty bosses reported that Kylie Cosmetics realised an estimated $177 million (£137 million) of net revenues for the trailing twelve months.

Kylie and her team will continue to lead all creative efforts in terms of product and communications initiatives, especially with regards to social media.

“We are pleased to welcome Kylie into our organisation and family,” added Pierre Laubies, Coty chief executive officer. “Combining Kylie’s creative vision and unparalleled consumer interest with Coty’s expertise and leadership in prestige beauty products is an exciting next step in our transformation and will leverage our core strengths around fragrances, cosmetics and skincare, allowing Kylie’s brands to reach their full potential.”

In March, editors at Forbes estimated Kylie Cosmetics to be valued at $900 million (£694 million) and Kylie’s net worth to be $1 billion (£771 million) – making her the world’s youngest billionaire.

Fans of the Kingsman films can now smell like secret service agents thanks to a new line of men’s fragrances created with the help of director Matthew Vaughn.

The English filmmaker, who masterminded Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, has teamed with bosses at lifestyle brand Coty Inc to come up with a scent inspired by the hit movies.

“As a unique, quintessentially British lifestyle brand, Kingsman fits perfectly within Coty Luxury’s portfolio and nicely complements our strong luxury men’s fragrance business,” said Coty Luxury president Edgar Huber. “Through our combined strength in storytelling and Coty’s marketing and commercial expertise, we are uniquely positioned to translate the Kingsman universe into a success in fragrances.”

The fragrance will be available in February, when prequel The King’s Man, starring Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, and Djimon Hounsou, hits theatres.

“This partnership is a further evolution of the Kingsman brand, a collaboration that represents the same high quality and craftsmanship the Kingsman portfolio is known for,” Vaughn added.

“Working with Coty’s expertise in fragrance, and with a truly exciting campaign to come, I look forward to the launch of the newest addition to the Kingsman collection.”

Vaughn previously teamed with bosses at the men’s style brand Mr. Porter on a range of items inspired by the franchise and with Glendronach distillers in Forgue, Scotland on a Kingsman Edition 1991 Vintage whisky.

Alexander McQueen Parfums has launched eight new fragrances.

Created by celebrated perfumer Pierre Aulas, Coty’s olfactive expert, the eight different scents have been designed to reflect the many sides of the McQueen woman.

“At Alexander McQueen, we are drawn to the traditional craft of perfumery, to ancient materials painstakingly sought out, but always with an eye on innovation, experimentation and the future,” Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen, said at the recent launch event, reports WWD.

She added that she loves the idea of fragrance as “gentle armour, protective, empowering and connected to the natural world” and further explained that each perfume tells its own story.

The eight-piece flora-infused collection is a continuation of the label’s 2016 offering, McQueen Parfum, which retails for $395 (£285) for 50ml.

The scents are available in a 75ml spray with a $257 (£196) price tag.

“(Burton) wanted me to stay very close to the DNA of the brand and to capture its duality,” Aulas commented.

The perfumes are; Celtic Rose, Blazing Lily, Luminous Orchid, Amber Garden, Sacred Osmanthus, Vetiver Moss, Dark Papyrus and Everlasting Dream.

Talking at the launch Coty Luxury’s chief marketing officer Simona Cattaneo said the collection was inspired by haute parfumerie.

“Each scent in the fragrance series is distinctive for its use of highly sought-after ingredients that harness the essential beauty and strength of nature,” she added.
