8@8: Your Morning Scoop
National Cotton Candy Day!
News of the Day:
+ Starbucks (and Christmas) lovers, listen up: The coffee chain just launched a brand-new frappuccino. The Christmas Tree Frappuccino is pretty much like its Peppermint Mocha Crème Frappuccino, but topped with a matcha whipped cream “tree,” a caramel drizzle “garland,” candied cranberry “ornaments,” and, of course, a strawberry “topper.” You’ll have to act fast to get your hands on the most wonderful drink of the year, though, as it’ll only be made until December 11.
+ W magazine has a celebrity video series on ASMR (which we are huge fans of here at NYLON). The latest interview features none other than Jake Gyllenhaal. Watch him struggle to hear the questions whispered to him, with plenty of bubble wrap popping, woodworking, and camera shutter clicks for your ASMR satisfaction.
+ Millennial pink, move over: Sant Ambroeus pink just became our new favorite shade. The cult favorite Italian bistro recently released a collab with cult favorite sneaker brand Superga. The shoes come in two colorways, cream with a pink sole and pink with a cream sole, and with a free Sant Ambroeus tote bag. You can find them on Superga’s website for $99 a pop.
+ The rumors are true, Kat Von D is bringing back her classic nude shade, “Bow N Arrow” ahead of her Beauty Everlasting Flash Sale. “Bow N Arrow” will be available in two formulas, the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and the new Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick. The two come in a set and are only available through the end of the day, so act fast!
+ In other beauty news, Kylie Jenner’s cosmetics line is launching a line of bullet lipsticks just in time for the holidays. This is a notable first for the brand, whose coveted matte liquid lipsticks put them on the map. The “Silver Series” will come in 20 different shades and be available December 13, so set an alarm now, because we all know that Kylie Cosmetics sell out fast. As if that wasn’t enough, Jenner also revealed that two more new products will drop that same day (concealers, maybe?).
Deal of the Day:
If you, too, are less than pleased with the gloomy days that come with winter weather, please allow The Mighty Company’s new line of jackets to brighten your mood. The vibrant line includes two leather biker jackets and a silk bomber, a perfect disruption from your muted fall wardrobe. What’s more, the bomber is reversible, so you can rock a pink or blue colorway depending on your mood.
