Adele’s Beauty Brand: The Shell Born Collective
Adele, the renowned singer, is rumored to be launching her own beauty brand called The Shell Born Collective. According to the trademark, the brand will offer a range of products including makeup, lip balms, body care creams, and even underwear and home wear. With the constant influx of celebrity beauty brands, it has become a trend that we can no longer ignore. Instead of wishing that celebrities would stop launching their own beauty brands, we should consider whether these celebrities genuinely have a passion for their own brand.
Are Celebrities Truly Interested in Their Brands?
When it comes to celebrities launching their beauty brands, it is natural for us to question their intentions. However, in the case of Adele, it seems that she has a genuine interest in the business side of things. She has showcased her business acumen by carefully selecting opportunities and collaborations in the past. Considering the number of offers she must have received, it is clear that she chooses her ventures wisely. So, perhaps we should give her the benefit of the doubt when it comes to her beauty brand.
The Shift from Fragrance to Beauty
In recent years, we have witnessed a shift in the celebrity beauty industry. Previously, celebrities primarily launched fragrances, but now they are expanding into the beauty market. This shift suggests that the beauty industry has become a more lucrative and sustainable venture compared to fragrances. While it may be overwhelming to see an increasing number of celebrity beauty brands, it is a trend that is likely to stay for the foreseeable future.
The Temptation to Buy New Products
As beauty enthusiasts, it is hard to resist the allure of new products and launches. However, as the year comes to an end, it might be wise to hold off on purchasing new items and wait for the next year. It is easy to fall into the trap of buying too much and accumulating unnecessary products. Taking a step back and reassessing our beauty purchases can help us make more informed decisions.
The Importance of Being Selective
With the plethora of beauty products available in the market, it is crucial to be selective in our purchases. Not every new launch will suit our individual needs or preferences. By carefully considering the ingredients, claims, and reviews of a product, we can avoid wasting our money on items that may not work for us. Being mindful of our choices can help us build a more effective skincare and beauty routine.
Adele’s Potential Skincare Line: A Surprising Yet Intriguing Launch
When it comes to celebrity beauty brands, there are those that immediately spark excitement and anticipation, and then there are those that catch us completely off guard. Adele’s rumored venture into the skincare market falls into the latter category. Known for her powerhouse vocals and emotional ballads, Adele’s entrance into the beauty industry may seem unexpected, but it definitely has me intrigued.
Adele: A Selective Creator
Adele is a performer known for her selective approach to projects. She chooses only those that truly resonate with her and align with her personal interests. It is this discerning taste that piques my curiosity regarding any skincare line she may launch. If Adele were to release body products, I would be first in line to purchase them. If she were to delve into skincare, I cannot deny that I would also be enticed.
Adele’s Potential Approach to Skincare
While Adele’s musical prowess is undeniable, her foray into the world of clean beauty seems unlikely. I imagine her taking a more minimalistic route, focusing on essential products rather than a constant stream of extravagant launches. Nevertheless, my interest remains undeniably piqued. Adele is not the first celebrity to venture into the beauty industry, but she is one that I did not anticipate. Her strong opinions on various subjects, including beauty, make me believe that any product she introduces will have her personal stamp of approval.
An Unexpected Discovery
In my pursuit of beauty news, I stumbled upon a product that has seemingly gone under the radar. It appeared as an advertisement on my Instagram feed, and I must admit, I had not seen or heard anyone else mention it. The product that caught my attention is the Fenty Skin Cookies and Clean Whipped Clay Detox Face Mask in Mint Chocolate Chip.
A Melange of Sensations
Allow me to share my personal opinion on this particular product. The idea of a clay mask infused with a cooling minty sensation does not appeal to me. Personally, I find such combinations to be rather unpleasant. Fenty Skin claims that this limited edition mask refreshes the skin upon contact, purifying pores with its whipped clay and charcoal formulation. While the promise of deeply cleansed and conditioned skin sounds enticing, the mint green color and the descriptor “mint chocolate chip” leave me feeling perplexed.
Unveiling the Unseen
The Fenty Skin Cookies and Clean Whipped Clay Detox Face Mask in Mint Chocolate Chip seems to have slipped through the beauty community’s radar. It is a launch that has largely gone unnoticed, which adds an air of mystery to its existence. Though the product does not align with my personal preferences, it may hold appeal for others. At the end of the day, skincare is a highly personal journey, and what may work for one may not work for another.
The beauty industry constantly surprises us with unexpected launches. Adele’s potential foray into skincare has certainly captured my attention, and I eagerly await any developments in this realm. As for the Fenty Skin Cookies and Clean Whipped Clay Detox Face Mask in Mint Chocolate Chip, it may not be a product that resonates with me, but beauty is subjective, and there may be those who find it delightful.
Why I Won’t Be Buying theFenty Skin Minty Mask
One of the new skincare products that I won’t be purchasing is the Fenty Skin Minty Mask. While the product claims to have benefits such as helping with excess oil production and pore refinement, it contains menthol, which can be irritating for those with sensitive skin. As someone with rosacea, I know that menthol tends to worsen my redness and flushing, so applying a minty mask is far from appealing to me. The idea of a limited edition version of this product also feels strange to me, and it makes me question the direction that Fenty Skin is taking.
The Decline of Fenty Skin
For me, the turning point in my interest towards Fenty Skin was the release of the Cookies and Clean mask. This product, coupled with the Minty Mask, has made me lose interest in the brand altogether. It feels like Fenty Skin is transitioning from being an adult-oriented brand to targeting younger demographics, such as pre-teens and early 20s individuals. While it may suit some people, I personally do not resonate with this shift in branding and therefore have no desire to try their new products.
No Interest in New Lip Sleeping Mask Flavors
Another set of products that I won’t be investing in are the two new flavors of the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask: caramel apple and peppermint. While these flavors may sound enticing to some, I find no need to purchase them as I already have the original version that works perfectly fine for me. Plus, lip sleeping masks typically have a long shelf life, so there’s no urgency for me to try out new flavors. I’d rather stick with what I know works for me.
These are the skincare and beauty products that I won’t be purchasing. With concerns about irritants like menthol in the Fenty Skin Minty Mask and the lack of interest in new flavors of the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, I have decided to pass on these items. It’s important to remember that everyone’s skincare preferences and needs are different, so what may not be appealing to me could work wonders for someone else. Ultimately, it’s about finding products that suit your individual needs and preferences.
The Disappointing Caramel Apple
I recently tried the caramel apple and to put it bluntly, it tastes awful. It’s definitely not something I would recommend. However, I must admit that this statement is a bit of a lie. I used to dislike the Lan Sleeping Lip Masks in general, but it’s specifically the strawberry flavor that I find drying for some reason. I can’t quite put my finger on why I dislike it while enjoying the gummy bear flavor.
Avoiding the Toffee Apple
Continuing on the theme of unpleasant flavors, the toffee apple is another disappointment. It’s no surprise that I don’t like the minty ones on my skin, but I do find the minty option interesting for a festive touch during Christmas. However, both the minty and toffee apple flavors will not be making their way into my skincare routine.
Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balms
Now let’s talk about Summer Fridays’ lip butter balm set. I actually purchased these products without realizing that they offered lip products as well. I’m slightly annoyed that no one informed me about them, considering their popularity. However, I must admit that I still prefer other brands like Road and Neurum over these lip butters.
There is one aspect of the lip butter balms that I appreciate the applicator. It’s of good quality and gives a smooth application. But here’s my only complaint: they’re too glossy for my taste. Even when I apply just a small amount, they still have a high gloss finish. They give off more of a makeup look rather than a natural skincare effect. However, I have found a use for them as a night mask, and they do work in that regard.
New Skincare / Beauty Products I Won’t Be Buying – Anti-Haul! James Welsh
Flur Body Sprays
Flur has recently released new body sprays, and if you haven’t experienced their fragrances, you’re truly missing out. The creators behind Flur are also responsible for Sal, hair naturium, make, and prequel skin. When it comes to fragrance in any of these brands, you can expect some of the most delightful scents you’ve ever encountered. Even the floral and fresh scents that I usually avoid somehow smell incredible to me.
Tinted Lip Balms by ???
There are new tinted lip balms on the market that promise to leave your lips looking moisturized and conditioned with a touch of color. From what I’ve seen in the images and videos, the cherry shade looks like a lovely red, while the iced coffee has a latte-like brown hue with a hint of milk. The vanilla, on the other hand, appears to be clear. While these lip balms seem tempting, I’ve tried similar products from narium and road, and they didn’t quite impress me. Although the color payoff may be better with those brands, I must admit that I adore the applicator and packaging of this new collection. However, considering my previous experiences with similar products, I’ll be skipping out on this one.
Flur Fragrances: Unique and Memorable
Flur is a brand that never fails to impress me with their scents. They have a knack for creating fragrances that are completely unlike anything I’ve ever smelled before. Unlike other brands that might remind you of popular perfumes or scents you’ve come across, Flur’s fragrances are truly unique.
Vanilla Skin: Classic and Nostalgic
One scent from Flur that stands out is Vanilla Skin. It’s a scent that my brother absolutely adores. To me, it smells like a classic vanilla fragrance, bringing back memories of all the vanilla perfumes my friends used to wear in school. It has that slightly sweet, body-shop-like vanilla scent that is familiar and comforting.
Amber Haze: Intriguing and Captivating
Now, let’s talk about Amber Haze and Mango Mood. These two scents from Flur are simply incredible in their own unique way. Amber Haze, in particular, is a fragrance that captivates me. It’s a darker, moodier take on amber scents that I usually gravitate towards. It’s like a more interesting version of the fragrances I love wearing to events and dinners. The fact that it comes in a more diluted body spray form makes it even more intriguing.
Mango Mood: Refreshing and Exotic
As for Mango Mood, it is a scent that instantly transports me to a tropical paradise. It’s refreshing and exotic, making me feel like I’m on a vacation every time I wear it. The combination of mango notes with other unique ingredients creates a fragrance that is truly one-of-a-kind.
Body and Hair Scents: A Sensible Choice
Flur also offers body and hair scents, which I find to be a sensible choice. It’s nice to have a consistent scent on both your body and hair, creating a cohesive and long-lasting fragrance experience. The price point of $35 per mist is also quite reasonable, considering the quality and lasting power of the scents. Even the travel-sized options, priced at $20, offer great value for money.
Flur is a brand that excels in creating unique and memorable fragrances. Their scents like Vanilla Skin, Amber Haze, and Mango Mood evoke different moods and emotions, taking the wearer on a sensory journey. If you’re looking for something outside the mainstream and want to stand out with a fragrance that no one else has, definitely give Flur a try.

The Alluring Flur Candles
You really get your money’s worth and it’s going to last you a long time. They have just released candles as well and their Woody one. I got it from selfes smells so good, so good, I don’t burn candles anymore. I just kind of melt them and candle melt, alers and honestly it it it what’s.
The word the fragrance goes throughout the whole house, throughout the whole room without being overbearing and powerful. You know a lot of scented candles. You feel, like you, can’t cut through the scent. It feels like there’s a sheet of fragrance, rather than it just naturally being in the air.
The Flur candles smell, like they’re part of the air you’re breathing. If that makes sense, so I’m going, I’m probably going to get the Amber one cuz. I really really like that one, the fruity scents aren’t really for me, so the mango one I’ll leave, but the the Amber one for sure I will definitely get nutum cafe collection.
The Vibrant Nutum Lip Balms
Where is it here? We go? Have it use it love it nutum. Definitely do these more pigmented colored um lip balms. I have all these ones here too, and I would say I prefer these ones to the road ones. Cuz the road one is very much well, some of them.
The lighter one which I completely lost is really really nice. This one really is very much a lip color almost like um. It looks like a lip stain, but it’s not whereas these nuran ones do have that hint of color and they can really kind of get that fine line between being a hint of color, but still having enough pigment for you to even notice a difference.

The Caf Collection: A Natural Approach
The Caf Collection is a range of lip balms that appeals to me due to its inclusivity in catering to various skin tones. I appreciate the collection’s emphasis on natural colors which leave a subtle hint of color on the lips, rather than just the traditional reds and pinks. These lip balms have truly won my heart, and I can’t express enough how much I love them. While some were gifted to me, I have willingly purchased other variants from the Phyto Glow Lip Balm collection. I highly recommend these lip balms for their quality and versatility. Personally, I tend to misplace my tinted lip balms frequently, which is why I enjoy having multiple options readily available. The Caf Collection usually retails for $40, but it is currently on sale for $34. If you have the chance, I strongly encourage you to grab one!
JLo Skin’s Besso Bal: An Underwhelming Lip Mask
JLo Skin has recently released a new lip balm called Besso Bal, marketed as an ultra-hydrating lip mask. The product claims to provide a smoother and plumper appearance for kissable lips, with a glossy finish. It can be used both as a morning gloss and as a lip mask for nighttime. Additionally, it boasts a delightful vanilla scent and features an emollient blend and candelia leaf extract for soothing effects. However, upon examining the product closely, it seems to be nothing more than a regular lip mask. The before and after images shared on Trend Mood’s Instagram do not provide any substantial evidence of its efficacy. In fact, the excessive amount of product applied to the lips in the images appears uneven and overdone. It feels like they purposely exaggerated the results to make it seem more significant, but it ultimately falls short in delivering on its promises.
In the world of skincare and beauty, it’s essential to critically assess new products before making a purchase. By exploring the Caf Collection lip balms and JLo Skin’s Besso Bal lip mask, we can make informed decisions and avoid falling into marketing traps. Remember, not every product that catches our attention is worth our money. It’s crucial to prioritize quality and functionality over mere brand popularity.
The Disappointing Lip Balm
There’s a new lip balm on the market that claims to do wonders for your lips. It promises to even out fine lines and provide other benefits. However, upon closer inspection, the product seems quite underwhelming. Priced at $19 for a one-time purchase or $650 for a subscription every 60 days, it raises some eyebrows. Will you really use up the entire lip balm in just 60 days? It seems unlikely.
Not only is the lip balm nothing special in terms of its claims, but the ingredients also fail to impress. While it’s true that you can’t fully review a product just by looking at its ingredients, there doesn’t seem to be much else going on here. It’s simply a layer on your lips, offering no additional benefits. For me, this product is a clear pass. It’s not worth the investment, especially when there are better options out there.
A Missed Opportunity from Pleasing Beauty
Pleasing Beauty, a beloved brand known for its nail products, has recently released a fragrance line. As a fan of their nail products, I was intrigued to see what they came up with in the fragrance department. Fragrance is something I believe they could excel at, considering the brand’s aesthetic which exudes a vintage charm.
Unfortunately, my excitement quickly turned into disappointment when I tried to purchase some of the fragrances. They were nowhere to be found in my local store, resulting in a missed opportunity for me to experience the scents the brand has to offer. It’s a shame, as I was genuinely curious to see what Pleasing Beauty thinks smells good. I guess I’ll have to wait until they become more widely available.
And speaking of missed opportunities, let’s not forget about the JLo serum. While I must admit that I quite liked it, the hefty price tag of $67 for a serum made me think twice. As much as I would love to incorporate it into my skincare routine, I simply can’t justify spending that much money on a single product.
The new skincare and beauty products mentioned above are ones that I won’t be adding to my collection. The lip balm fails to live up to its claims, the Pleasing Beauty fragrance line remains elusive, and the JLo serum is just too expensive for my budget. It’s a pity when products don’t meet our expectations, but luckily, there are plenty of other options out there waiting to be discovered.
New Skincare / Beauty Products I Won’t Be Buying – Anti-Haul! James Welsh
However, they are all sold out. Oh, are they yeah? They all sold out at the moment and theyre about 135 per fragrance, which I feel like for a brand thats, not massively well established, is kind of and first entering the fragrance game is a little bit, but this one is called bright, hot odor, perfume top notes, Plum tobacco leaves heart notes, are orus butter, Marine Accord, base notes being seed, wood, tonka bean, vanilla and crisp Amber, which sounds like something I would love. Thats sounds like something I would wear. They also have one called rouet with lemon black pepper, a linen Accord. Poplin Blossom skin musk closeness, its a woody fragrance um, Australian, pink pepper, extract, cardamon, clean sheets Accord, orus butter carrot, seed, France, carrot seed, France, bamboo, Indian Papyrus, cashmere, Woods, salted musk. How good does that sound and its black and pink I would have. I would have 100 bought that just for the packaging, but I am interested to see what that smells like, because, whilst I dont love the pleasing products, they are nice to use. When I was using them, they felt good, I feel like they create good quality stuff. Theyre nail varnish, although I cant use nail varnish like polish anymore, because I get contact dermatitis around my eyes and its not just that brand. Its All Brands was some of the nicest nail polish Id ever use, not too streaky a lot of one coat. Really nice products they just make really nice quality products.
The Fragrances that Got Away
I recently came across a brand that had gained popularity for its unique fragrances. Unfortunately, all the fragrances are currently sold out. These fragrances, priced at around 135 per bottle, seem quite expensive for a brand that is not yet well-established in the fragrance industry. However, I must admit that the description of one particular fragrance called “Bright, Hot Odor” caught my attention. With top notes of plum tobacco leaves, heart notes of orus butter and marine accord, and base notes of seed, wood, tonka bean, vanilla, and crisp amber, it sounds like a scent I would love. Similarly, another fragrance named “Rouet” with its lemon black pepper and linen accord, along with notes of poplin blossom, skin musk, and closeness, sounds intriguing. The black and pink packaging of these fragrances is also very appealing to me.
A Tempting Scent Combination
The fragrance “Rouet” from this brand has a unique combination of scents. The mention of Australian pink pepper extract, cardamom, clean sheets accord, orus butter, carrot seed from France, bamboo, Indian papyrus, cashmere woods, and salted musk creates a captivating blend. I can’t help but wonder how this fragrance would smell. Even though I don’t have a preference for this brand’s products, I have to admit that they create good quality items. My experience
The Limited Edition Collaboration with Dead Call
So the moment they are back in stock, I will get them. We are partnering with dead call um on a limited edition collaboration of dryer sheets. This is something as an adult who owns a washing machine is something I’m genuinely quite interested in.
The Hit or Miss Nature of Whey Products
Products are very Hit or Miss for me, but one thing that I always enjoy about their hair products is the scent the smell, and these dry sheets are in that signature way. Scent Melrose Place, swirls notes of Rose, bergamont, white musk, they say our dryer sheets, soften Fabrics, reduced static and gentle fragrance pair with detergent, the top notes being champagne, pink, peppercorn, Berry and Lighty, its not Ley middle being. Pey Rose free, Fria, Fria, Jasmine and bergamont bottom Bean, Amber Sandalwood, white musk and Cedar Wood.
The Fragrance Experience
I love them for those who are AR really into fragrance like myself, and I don’t really understand the notes. It smells um, musky and Woody without being too masculine, with a little bit of floral without being too feminine. That makes sense. I wouldn’t like my bed sheet smelling like this, though. I feel like it’d be a very kind of like overpowering overbearing um scent to have constantly up against my nose, but for $14. I think that’s really decent $40. I think that’s a bargain. No, I don’t think it’s a bargain. I think that’s a decent price, so yeah, we’ll see. I might buy those we’ll see; I’ll, let you know what they smell like.
Skincare and Beauty Products I Won’t Be Buying
No to Fragranced Dryer Sheets
If the clothes smell good, oh no, they’re dryer sheets! In the UK, many people do not have dryers, and even if I did, I would avoid using one. Drying clothes in a machine can damage certain fabrics and colors, so dryer sheets are a definite no for me. However, here’s a hack: if you want your living room to smell nice, you can put dryer sheets in the cushion covers. They will release a pleasant scent. Personally, I don’t do that because I have dogs and their noses are too sensitive.
Not Kept Up with New Releases
I must admit that I haven’t been keeping up with new skincare and beauty releases. Towards the end of the year, I never focus on new products. Instead, I prefer to have a clear out and start fresh in the new year. So, if there are any new releases I’ve missed, please let me know in the comments below.
Your Recommendations are Welcome
I’m open to suggestions and would love to hear about any new releases that you’re loving or looking forward to. Feel free to leave your recommendations in the comments section below. You can also watch my videos to stay updated on new skincare and beauty products.
The beauty industry continues to evolve with the introduction of new celebrity beauty brands. Adele’s rumored beauty brand, The Shell Born Collective, is just one example of this trend. Instead of criticizing celebrities for entering the beauty market, it is important to consider their genuine interest and business acumen. With the abundance of new launches, it is crucial for consumers to be more selective in their purchases and prioritize products that suit their individual needs.
Unfortunately, there is no or closing remarks as per the instructions provided.
