3-Minute Read: Kylie's Lip Kits Are About to Be Cheaper Than Ever
Welcome to 3-Minute Read, your midweek rundown of everything we’re talking about at Byrdie HQ. Every Thursday, we’ll get you up to date on the beauty news you need to know—in just three minutes.
1. Now's the time to stock up on Kylie Cosmetics.
Jenner will be waiving her $12 shipping fee for a limited time, just in time for a sitewide restock starting at 10 a.m. PDT on Thursday. But as always with Kylie’s wares, shopping this deal requires some quick action—it’s only around for 24 hours.
2. These are the best beauty products of 2016.
Allure just released this year’s rendition of its Best of Beauty Awards, and we wholeheartedly concur with the winners. Did any of your favourites make the list?
3. Everyone's pretty mad at the sugar industry.
According to documents uncovered by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, the “Sugar Research Foundation” paid off Harvard scientists 50 years ago to downplay the connection between sugar and heart disease—manipulating decades of published studies to come. (Some experts say it’s likely one of the big reasons scientists demonised fat for so long.) The irony is that we now know sugar’s effects on the body are comparable to cigarette damage—and Big Tobacco is also historically notorious for manipulating research.
4. Don't underestimate the colour of your brows.
This seemingly small detail can actually make a huge difference for your look. Check out Vogue’s handy brow guide to choose the right shade according to your hair colour.
5. Breaking: Your cold-brew addiction is making you healthier.
According to Health.com, it’s one of this season's buzziest health food trends, thanks to coffee’s seriously high antioxidant content. Ayurveda-themed snacks and avocado everything round out the top three.
