Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, you’ve probably heard a thing or two about the Kardashians. Love them or hate them, their style has had a substantial impact on 21st-century beauty and fashion trends. This is no better exemplified than through the youngest of the lot, Kylie Jenner. In 2015, the 18-year-old reality star became known for her pouty lips, which were almost always covered in matte liquid lipstick. This immediately caught on as a trend, and matte lipsticks began to fly off the shelves of Sephora and MAC like hotcakes. In response to fans’ demands, Kylie Jenner began to work on her own design. Thus, Kylie Cosmetics was born.



The flagship product, the Kylie Jenner lip kit, first released in five shades: Candy K, Dolce K, Koko K and Mary Jo K. All but the latter are shades of the pale pink Kylie made so popular. The kit includes Kylie’s signature Matte liquid lipstick,and a matching lip liner. Since the first sale, three more matte colors have been released — a chocolate shade called True Brown, a purple shade named Kourt K for Jenner’s older sister Kourtney and an orange piece simply called 22. Kylie Cosmetics also sells three glosses — Like, Literally and So Cute.


Kylie Jenner’s products have been wildly popular. Instead of releasing the iconic makeup line to stores, the makeup was made available only on her website. The products are released weekly, and are typically announced on Jenner’s Instagram or Snapchat. The exclusivity surrounding release dates and times adds to the allure, and most of Jenner’s products sell out just minutes after her release.

Relive the Golden Age of Flying With The Pan Am Experience

Most of us are too young to remember the days when flying was an elaborate and luxurious event. Nowadays planes are cramped, seats are uncomfortable and meals leave plenty to be desired.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

LGBTQ+: Saba, Caribbean Netherlands

Saba Island was the first Caribbean island to legalize same-sex marriage back in 2012. While the tiny Dutch territory is extremely welcoming of the LGBTQ+ community, it’s not exactly a hotbed of gay activity. At only five square miles, there isn’t much room for gay bars and glam.
