Spotify Will Soon Start Selling Makeup

It seems like Spotify is trying to make a little extra dough on the side, as they’re expanding their platform to offer a makeup selection that will be offered on artist Maggie Lindemann’s Spotify page.

Now, Spotify has been allowing artists to connect with their service called Merchbar in order to sell things like posters and band tees, but this is the first time Spotify has allowed an artist to expand beyond that.

What’s next? Is Lady Gaga going to start selling cuts of beef from her dresses, or maybe Taylor Swift is going to sell the posters of Kanye that she been using as dart boards? These are slippery slopes, my friends.

The collection will be available from November 17th, and prices will range from ~$21 for lipsticks to ~$125 for full face palettes.

Time for Crazy Eyes: Nicolas Cage Eyeshadow Actually Exists

Nicolas Cage Eyeshadow

When Nicolas Cage does his crazy eyes, you’d be hard-pressed to look away. Not only because his eyes are strangely mesmerizing, but also because he looks strangely funny and creepy and downright crazy at the same time.

These pots of Nicolas Cage eyeshadow won’t teach you the art (or is it the curse?) of crazy eyes, but you can use it to create a bunch of eye looks that may or may not look crazy. They’re being sold by Shiro Cosmetics, who are probably taking advantage of the popularity or notoriety of Nic Cage.

High-Tech Beauty: Activate Gadgets With a Wink and a Smile

Conducive Makeup

How you control your devices might soon change, thanks in part to these developments by computer scientist Katia Vega. Instead of actually manipulating your device or using a remote control, Vega envisions that people–specifically those who wear makeup–will be able to unlock or activate their devices by moving a certain part of their face. Not just any part, but parts where specialized makeup has been applied.

Apparently, Vega was able to come up with a method to integrate sensors and conductive elements to makeup. For example, when eyeshadow is applied to both the top and bottom of the person’s eye where metalized lashes have also been affixed, then a longer-than-usual blink will allow the sensors in the eyeshadow and lashes to connect, completing the circuit.

This Is What Barbie Looks Like Without Makeup

Barbie No MakeUp

For years, people have frowned upon the all-too-perfect looks and body shape of Barbie because it encourages kids to be superficial and overly-conscious about their looks, which makes them lose sight of the bigger picture. The big picture being that it doesn’t matter what a person looks like, as long as he or she has got a good heart and a compassionate spirit.

Every Barbie doll that leaves the manufacturing line looks perfectly made-up with bright lipstick and dark eyeliner accentuating her pretty doll features. Artist Eddi Aguirre, however, had different ideas. He stripped Barbie off her makeup and came up with the image that you see above. You can check out a close-up of Barbie sans the heavy makeup after the break.

Cargo Introduces Blu-Ray Makeup – Yeah, Like For The Face


By David Ponce

High definition televisions are great. What’s not so great is the jolly bunch of celebrities who hurriedly started caking on makeup once they realized the new technology allowed their so-called fans to notice their skin imperfections. Here’s a newsflash Joan Rivers: we can see caked up makeup too! You understand of course that whenever there’s a need, a company will pop up to fill it. In this case a company called Cargo has started selling a line of makeup products called “Blu-Ray High Definition Makeup” that allegedly makes someone look “radiant and flawless” (read, not so damn old or pimply) while still looking natural. The products are made from “special pigments and high-tech ingredients”, which doesn’t tell us a whole lot or inspire much confidence. Then again, half of the products on the shelves nowadays find buyers on the strength of the marketing efforts alone. For what it’s worth, prices here seem just about in line with regular makeup products (or so a female friend tells me).
