CAMILA CABELLO DEBUTS HAVANA-INSPIRED MAKEUP LINE WITH L’OREAL – (07/11/2018)
Camila Cabello has launched a new line of makeup with L’Oreal Paris called Havana, after her hit song and her birthplace. The 14-piece collection includes shimmery eye shadows, brow products, liquid eyeliner, lip gloss and L’Oreal’s first liquid bronzer. All retail for $15 and under.
“I am so excited! The process of getting to build a line from the ground up and getting to pick out the shades, and the fragrance of the lip glosses, and the packaging design has been an incredible experience,” the singer tells ELLE.com.
She adds, “I just knew I wanted to make a makeup line that was natural. If I’m not on stage or doing an award show performance, I really don’t like wearing a lot of makeup. I feel like this line is really an expression of what I would wear. It’s glowy and simple.”
Camila admits she used to feel pressure to look a certain way and reveals some of her biggest beauty insecurities she’s had to overcome.
“I could name a lot of really dumb ones,” she says. “I don’t like the right side of my face, I feel like my face looks different on the right side. Also my teeth – I have some really crooked teeth on the bottom. There’s one [tooth] that just juts out when I smile which is not fun. But, whatever, it adds character!”
Camilla began her collaboration with L’Oréal as the face of the brand in 2017. She becomes the brand’s first global spokeswoman to collaborate on products.

IMAGINE DRAGONS LEADS ‘BILLBOARD’ MID-YEAR ROCK CHARTS – (07/11/2018)
Imagine Dragons leads almost every category in Billboard‘s just-published lists of the highest-selling rock albums and songs of 2018 so far. The survey breaks down the biggest records based on both traditional sales and streaming-equivalent units, as well as digital single-song sales and streams with and without video.
The Las Vegas-based Imagine Dragons tops every category except traditional album sales, where the band sits at Number Two with its 2017 album Evolve. Overall, rock still relies heavily on traditional album sales as opposed to streaming, with acts like Five Finger Death Punch, Metallica and Breaking Benjamin all placing on the Top 10 Selling Rock Albums chart, which is solely traditional.
Some of the biggest songs on the survey include Bad Wolves‘ cover of the Cranberries‘ “Zombie,” Disturbed‘s remake of Simon & Garfunkel‘s “The Sound Of Silence” and Skillet‘s “Monster.”
But it was Imagine Dragons again who took the crown, with the top two selling digital rock songs being that band’s “Whatever It Takes” and “Thunder.” The latter and “Believer” also scored in the On-Demand Rock Song Streams, On-Demand Rock Audio Streams and On-Demand Rock Video Streams lists.
