Oh look, another celeb beauty launch



Humanrace skincare

I’m so cynical about celeb beauty lines and yet completely seduced by this Pharrell-founded skincare brand, Humanrace. I just love this clean, clinical packaging and I hope the products smell of Granny Smiths.

For the marketing campaign, Pharrell has used extreme close-ups of smooth-skinned, modern day influencers, including the artist Blondey and a robotic cancer surgeon called Dipen Parekh. The blurb is all very worthy which is a bit of a turn-off for me. I guess all that needs to be seen is if non-influencer people talk about it and if it’s actually any good. (You can buy it here – when it’s not sold out – from $32.)

Do you believe Pharrell is invested interested in skincare or is this just another celebrity cash grab? Read more here.

Quote of the day: Jim Jarmusch on Steve Buscemi



Steve Buscemi for GQ by Fanny Latour Lambert

“We used to joke that he was our generation’s Don Knotts, but he’s more Jimmy Stewart in a way. He portrays humanity.”
Jim Jarmusch on Steve Buscemi, GQ

This is the sweetest GQ profile on my favourite actor, Steve Buscemi, I just want to give him a cuddle. (It’s pronounced ‘boo-sem-ee’, by the way.) (And if you haven’t seen Living In Oblivion, please make it your top priority!) (more…)
