Kylie Jenner Is Selling An Eye Shadow Named ‘Gluten Free’ And We’re Working 10-Hour Days. Just Think About That For A Second.

Is this a win for coeliac sufferers? Is the eye shadow actually gluten free? Can you eat it? Should you eat it? So many questions.

New mama Kylie Jenner just dropped the latest collection in her makeup empire, Kylie Cosmetics, and this time she’s collaborated with big sis, Kourtney Kardashian.

The two joined forces to create the new line, which was heavily inspired by Kourtney’s dietary and lifestyle choices.

Kourtney is famously gluten and diary free, so naturally, it seemed fitting to name one of the eye shadows ‘gluten free’.

Because why not?

When you’re fresh out of ideas, always circle back to someone’s inability to absorb nutrients from food through the walls of their small intestine.

 

Except, here’s the thing… Kourtney isn’t actually Coeliac.

But hey, autoimmune diseases are great for marketing cosmetics. Just saying.

The other issue is that gluten can be found in all kinds of things – including makeup,  shampoo, toothpaste, lipstick, hairspray, soap and cleansers.

So, is Kylie and Kourtney’s new eye shadow actually gluten free?

Well… we don’t know yet.

At least we won’t know until someone posts a picture of the ingredients or Kylie straight up tells us.

Even though we don’t actually eat cosmetics (unless you do that… for some reason?), our skin does absorb the products we put on it.

Most cosmetics have gluten or grain-based ingredients such as wheat germ, avena sativa (oats), hydrolised vegetable proteins, and hydrolised wheat proteins.

If you’re trying to avoid gluten in makeup, keep an eye out for all of these names, including the sneaky term ‘triticum aestivum’, which is just a fancy science way of saying ‘wheat’.

So, here’s the rub.

Even if you want to take that gluten free life to your eyelids, you probably can’t…

Devastating, I know, but not all is lost.

Just make sure you’re reading the labels on your favourite Kylie Cosmetic products before you apply them, or make your life easier and give some of these beauty brands a go: BITE Beauty, Ecco Bella, and Gabriel Cosmetics are all guaranteed to be gluten free.

Happy skin, happy tummy, happy everything.

 

Kanye West Called His Wife 'Marie Antoinette', And We Think He Somehow Meant It As A Compliment?

He’s back on Twitter, he’s armed with more existential rants than Camus and Nietzsche combined, and he’s getting a neck tattoo. Basically, Kanye West is back to being his Kanye best.

Earlier this week the one and only Kanye West reactivated his Twitter account, and sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to interview his personal interior designer and collaborator, Axel Vervoordt.

The two creatives discussed everything from Kanye’s new book idea (it’s a philosophy read called Break The Simulation), to his goals for the Louis Vuitton brand (he doesn’t care about being top dog anymore).

But the best part of the conversation came when Kanye decided to compare Kim Kardashian to, umm, Marie Antoinette.

Yeah… Does he not get why that’s a bad thing?

It all started when Kanye revealed he wasn’t a big fan of photographs, or the people fixated with snapping and documenting every moment of their lives…

I’m just going to leave this picture (posted last week) by the selfie queen herself right here…

To Kanye’s credit, he tried to explain his comment and give context to the comparison, although it didn’t really hit the mark.

There was a whole thing about images dragging us back to our past…

“I’ve got a concept about photographs, and I’m on the fence about photographs — about human beings being obsessed with photographs — because it takes you out of the now and transports you into the past or transports you into the future. It can be used to document, but a lot of times it overtakes [people]. People dwell too much in the memories.”

 

Kanye went on to explain that everyone wants to look to the past for inspiration and dwell on the importance of history, even in the fashion industry.

This is a concept he finds even more fascinating now that he’s working on “a new community development in L.A.” with Vervoordt.

Apparently it’s based on homes that he thinks will “represent humanity for the next 500 to 1,000 years.”

That in itself deserves an entire dissection and discussion, but back to the Antoinette comparison.

“Even with my wife, I see her as a representation, as a Marie Antoinette of our time,” he said proudly.

Wait, whaaa? Who’s doing thing with the what now?

Let them eat cake! Let them buy the Kimoji app! It’s basically the same thing, right?

Maybe Kanye has forgotten that the infamous Queen of France was so out of touch with every class below the aristocracy that she was beheaded for her ignorance…

Doesn’t Kanye remember the comments that were made when Kim dressed up as Antoinette for that weird 2015 Hype energy drink commercial?

This isn’t the first time Kanye has made the comparison between the two women.

Check out this quote from a Harpers Bazaar interview from 2016.

“It’s funny, for Kim to be photographed so much, (she) represents our modern day Marie Antoinette. She gets hair and make-up every day, not just for a photo shoot. Why? Because every day is a photo shoot.”

Deep.

While Kanye didn’t clarify his comment any further, he did admit to having a Ph.D. from the Art Institute of Chicago, and that he was irked upon hearing the news that long-time Yeezy collaborator, Virgil Abloh, was just named the new menswear artistic director of Louis Vuitton.

“… Abloh and I have been fighting to make apparel at a certain price that still has the same credibility and desirability as something at a higher price. … But when they say he was my creative director, that’s incorrect. He was a creative collaborator.”

 

Got it. Creative collaborator, not director.

“At Adidas, I have Yeezy, but it’s a namesake brand. It’s my nickname. We do these sneakers that sell out and we get, “Oh, this is the number one brand on Women’s Wear Daily.” And I don’t wish to be number one anymore, I wish to be water.”

 

Water with a neck tattoo that is…

Oh, and in case you haven’t seen it yet, Kanye is gettin’ real philosophical on Twitter again, and it’s amazing.

Kanye, never change.

Khloe Kardashian's Baby Daddy Tristan Thompson Runs Kissing And Screaming From Pregnancy... AGAIN

Yep, this is the second time Thompson's cheated on a pregnant partner. Seems he plays the field better than he plays the court.

Scum. Dirty dog.

Tristan Thomspon has been caught on video allegedly cheating on his heavily pregnant girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian – giving more power and credence to the ol’ saying, ‘once a cheater, always a cheater’.

I’d like to say I’m shocked, but mostly, I’m just really disappointed and upset. So very upset.

The first video emerged this week, allegedly showing Thompson kissing a mystery brunette during a party in New York City just days ago.

While his face is covered by his giant hoodie (strategic fashion choice I’m sure), it’s been reported that after talking in depth, the two leaned in for an intimate kiss, and that’s when things started to escalate.

The second blow came when the video was then followed by images of Thompson entering a hotel with the same woman that afternoon.

The clip, which was filmed over a decent chunk of time, shows the pair hunkering down in the hotel for few hours, until emerging and going their separate ways.

Now a third heartbreaking video has surfaced featuring touchy-feely Tristan messing around with two completely different women.

The TMZ clip was shot in October last year when Khloe was three months pregnant with their first child.

This of course isn’t the first time Khloe has been very publicly cheated on.

The Kardashian clan has supported her through numerous infidelity scandals with former partners including husband and NBA player Lamar Odom, James Harden, and French Montana.

But you know what? This isn’t about Khloe.

This is about Tristan.

This is about his betrayal and unforgivable, reprehensible behaviour.

His selfish actions are made even more disgusting by the fact that this is not the first time Tristan has cheated on a pregnant partner.

Jordan Prince was 7 months along when Tristan left her in September 2016 for Khloe.

Prince took to Instagram in wake of the scandal to offer her sympathies to Khloe (who could literally be giving birth right now) and shade Thompson.

Good girl.

The outcome of this whole incident shouldn’t be rooted in Prince getting revenge on Khloe (as many people on social media have suggested).

The point is this: Tristan Thompson is by all accounts a cheating liar who has no respect for women, or anyone else he happens to effect in his selfish and boring journey to the middle.

Tristan? Basketball and your two seconds of reality fame won’t last forever – you might feel like you’re flying high right now but one day you’re going to have to live with the decisions you’ve made.

You’re going to have to earn back the respect of your kids, and explain to at least two of your children why dad felt the need to cheat on mum in front of the world. And then do it all over again.

You’re also going to have to take responsibility for your part in glorifying the concept and actions behind cheating, because let’s not for a second pretend like you didn’t know the cameras were on, and that you didn’t enjoy it.
