The top 5 celebrity beauty lines to hit the shelves

Andrea Arterbery

Flower lip butter

Flower lip butter

Oh, you have your own fashion line and fragrance? So what! Nowadays, it seems that it’s not enough for you to just be a celebrity with your own clothing line, fragrance, shoes, the list can go on and on. Now, several celebs even have their own beauty product line! If you're wondering if any of these products are worth shopping for, read on to see which picks made my list.

Flower by Drew Barrymore

What it is: The former face of CoverGirl cosmetics, this actress/new mom is the latest to join the cosmetic club.

Her new line, Flower, features the tag line “Love The Way You Look.” Available for purchase at Wal-Mart and, there are 181 units in the collection that ranges from eyeliners to nail polish.

The packaging itself is pretty clean and simple which is great because (and this is just my personal opinion) beauty products that feature tons of embellishments are usually a turn off.

According to recent article in Women’s Wear Daily, which announced the launching of the line, the formulas are custom-made at the same price as those used in luxury products.

Key product: Lip Butter ($6.98, Anything that has the word “butter” in it has to be amazing, right? Well, this is no different. Available in 9 shades (some are already sold out), this lip moisturizer glides on smooth and leaves lips feeling super soft with a hint of shine.

Nuance by Salma Hayek

Nuance By Salma Hayek

What it is: Who knew that Salma harbored such a love for beauty products? The actress and mom is the brains behind beauty brand Nuance, an impressive array of cosmetics, hair as well as skincare products.

Inspired by her grandmother, Hayek says she created the line “to help every woman enhance the nuances that define her individual beauty.” Each product is available for purchase exclusively at CVS and

Key product: Anti-Aging Wrinkle Filler Eye Serum ($20, As a personal skincare product hoarder, it makes sense that I would gravitate more towards these items in the line. The Anti-Aging Wrinkle Filler Eye Serum contains one of those cooling rollerballs, which makes for easy application. Each of her skincare products boasts some type of “beauty secret” outlined on the side of the package so you can pretend that you’re exclusively privy to some exotic ingredients while applying.

CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm

CoverGirl Queen Collection by Queen Latifah

What it is: Rapping, acting, singing…there isn’t much this woman hasn’t done! She not only serves as the face of CoverGirl, but she’s also got her very own stand alone collection with the brand specifically targeted to women of color.

Key product: CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm ($7.49, at Target and other drugstores nationwide) In addition to hoarding skincare products, I’m also known to do the same with lip gloss. However, this year, I’ve promised myself and the rest of my beauty blogging friends that I’m going to strictly stick to lipstick. However, this gloss balm is like the perfect hybrid between a lip gloss and a lipstick in that it leaves your lips super soft and hydrated with.

Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford

Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford

Meaningful Beauty By Cindy Crawford

What it is: Yes, she’s one of the most stunning women to ever walk the planet. Alright, so maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but you have to admit that Cindy Crawford is a pretty attractive lady. That’s basically how her skincare line started: she wanted to be able to maintain her beauty while still living her busy life. So, she partnered with French anti-aging specialist Dr. Jean Louis Sebagh (the man responsible for helping her to maintain that amazing skin of hers over the years) to develop her own line of skincare products.

Yahoo! Shopping Editor, Krista DeWeese has been using the Meaningful Beauty products for 5 weeks and noticed a huge difference in the texture and tone of her skin. Krista says, "In just a short amount of time, my skin is totally renewed. I've used many products over the course of a decade and haven't seen results this dramatic! My pores are disappearing and my skin tone is even, and I didn't even have to wait that long to see a difference."

Key product: Crème de Serum (bundled with the New Advanced System, $39.95, and also available at Sephora inside of JCPenney stores) It’s already quite confusing to figure out whether or not you should use a cream or serum. This is why it’s a great thing that Cindy and Dr. Sebagh figured that we all needed both so she created this triple potency product that combines the power of a serum with the rich moisturizing effects of a cream. Genius!

Khroma Beauty

Khroma Beauty

Khroma Beauty by Kim, Kourtney & Khloe Kardashian

What it is: They’ve already oversaturated the clothing market, so why not add in beauty? Say what you want about these reality starlets, but their makeup always looks flawless, so it makes total sense that they would come out with their own line of cosmetics.

Key product: Khloe’s Kardazzle Face Palette ($12.99, While I can’t say that I’ve tested every single item in the cosmetic line, I can say that I am a fan of this palette that contains the perfect eyeshadow to create a nude, smoky eye. As an added bonus, it also contains a blush and bronzer so it’s perfect for on-the-go touch ups.

      The eight-foot projection screen dropped from a courtroom ceiling. The surveillance video began to play. And from her seat in the second row, Cassandra Atkens — in court Thursday to watch her daughter’s killer be sentenced — knew what she was about to see. The video showed how light it still was at 7:17 p.m. June 1, 2015, in a Target store parking lot in Germantown where Atkens’s daughter, Mariam “Shadé” Adebayo, had agreed to meet ex-boyfriend Donald Bricker one more time. She was there to tell him it really was over. He pulled up in his truck, then got in her car and brought out a .44-caliber, replica-style black-powder revolver — a gun that he’d ordered online and that had arrived just that

      DES MOINES — A substitute teacher accused of having sex with a 17-year-old high school student in Cedar Rapids claims the student seduced her. Mary Beth Haglin was charged in July with sexual exploitation by a teacher. On Monday, she appeared on Dr. Phil, accusing the student of seducing her and sharing sexy photos with his friends. “Many people see him as the victim and me as the perpetrator. From a psychological standpoint and from every other standpoint, I feel like I am the victim,” Haglin said on the Dr. Phil show, citing the student's intelligence and “elevated vocabulary” as part of the seduction. Haglin pleaded not guilty to sexual exploitation by a school employee. Her trial is set to

      It's no secret that there is no love lost between Hillary Clinton and her security detail, but the intensity of their dislike for the woman who may become our next president is still a bit jarring. According to the New York Post, members of her diplomatic security detail while she was secretary of state hated her so much that they "privately snickered" after she fell down and broke her arm. The incident happened in the State Department basement in 2009, one of her former guards told the Post. Clinton, then 61, was on her way to meet President Obama when she took a tumble and ended up in the hospital with a shattered right elbow. “We sort of got the last laugh.

      A gracious letter written by Republican President George H.W. Bush after he lost the 1992 election to Democrat Bill Clinton is going viral – offering quite a contrast to the comments current Republican nominee Donald Trump made during Wednesday night’s debate. For weeks, Trump has called the election “rigged,” pointing blame at the media and potential voter fraud. During the final debate, the GOP nominee was asked to address these accusations, as well as answer once and for all whether he would “absolutely accept” the result of this election. Some found the candidate’s response shocking. “I will look at it at the time. I’m not looking at anything now. I’ll look at it at the time,” Trump said.

    • 34-Year-Old Model Katie May Died From A Stroke—Here’s What You Should Know

      Update Oct. 19, 2016: According to information from the Los Angeles County Coroner released today, the stroke that killed 34-year-old model Katie May in February was caused by "an injury sustained during a 'neck manipulation by chiropractor,'" People reports. The coroner's assessment is that when May visited a chiropractor for an adjustment in her neck, it caused a tear in her left vertebral artery. "The tear blocked blood flow to May’s brain and caused the stroke," People reports. It was previously believed that a block in her carotid artery following a fall during a photoshoot may have been the cause of the fatal stroke.

    • Basketball player turns a missed dunk into a trick shot that's too good to be true

      Whether it was on purpose or by accident, this shot by a Kennesaw State basketball player is amazing. I don’t know how Jordan Jones did it either, but I have a suspicion the missed dunk wasn’t really a miss. Look how quickly he turns to look at the far hoop. He hasn’t even landed on the ground yet! And he doesn’t even seem surprised here at the end. Just self-satisfied. But don’t get me wrong, I would be too, if I had pulled that off. Kennsaw State’s strategy for this season should include Jones repeating that in a game, leaving their opponents so distracted trying to figure out how he did it that they don’t notice the rest of the team scoring ALL the points.

      Dude, you weren’t supposed to say that out loud! On Monday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) confirmed one of Democrats’ worst fears. If Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wins the White House, but Republicans keep the Senate, the GOP “will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up.” If America wants to have a Supreme Court in five years, in other words, it better elect the same party to the White House and the Senate. Not long after McCain’s comment, however, a new talking point was born. McCain’s own spokesperson said McCain did not actually mean what he said. The senator will “thoroughly examine the record of any Supreme Court

    • Iceland drills hottest hole to tap into energy of molten magma

      Drilling into hot rocks to tap geothermal energy is one thing. Drilling deep enough to tap the energy from magma oozing into volcanoes is quite another, offering a massive increase in the potential to exploit Earth’s inner heat. That is the task of a rig now drilling 5 kilometres into the rugged landscape of old lava flows in Reykjanes, at the south-west corner of Iceland. Drilling began on 12 August. By the end of the year, the Iceland Deep Drilling Project (IDDP) hopes to have created the hottest hole in the world, hitting temperatures anywhere between 400 and 1000 °C. The drilling will penetrate a landward extension of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge – a major boundary between Earth’s tectonic plates

      Astronomers are more confident than ever that a huge ninth planet remains undiscovered – because it’s probably tilting the Solar System. Since earlier this year, scientists have believed that a so-far unseen world is out somewhere on the edge of the Solar System. But now, a new study has suggested that ninth planet may be responsible for the tilt that makes the Sun look like it’s off at an angle from the planets. The real ninth planet was first predicted in a study from Caltech researchers Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown, who used computer simulations and mathematical modelling to posit its presence. Nicknamed Planet Nine, this object is believed to be about ten times more massive than Earth

    • The Harsh Electoral Math: Ohio Will Be Forgotten

      Iowa and Ohio have long wielded outsize influence in presidential elections, but their reign may be coming to an end. Because of demographic trends reshuffling some of the traditional relationships in this presidential election, these two states will find that the Democratic Party is no longer catering to them. The party may in fact start to ignore them, because it pays to invest only in states necessary to get to 270 Electoral College votes -- and Iowa and Ohio would be superfluous. For 50 years, the rule of presidential politics has been that if you want to win, you have to win Ohio. Beginning with Johnson in 1964, every president has won it. It's the longest such streak in the country. While

Mocking the death of Miami Marlins’ pitcher Jose Fernandez, who passed away in a tragic boating accident last month, the sign was put out in advance of the Miami Hurricanes’ visit to Blacksburg for their ACC battle on Thursday night. Whoever made this sign wanted to make sure everyone knew that they respect Fernandez, as they extended the “courtesy” to throw an RIP at the end.
