The chicest way to wash your face.
Long hailed by Frenchwomen and makeup artists for its ability to cleanse skin without stripping it dry, micellar water is going next level. The no-rinse makeup-erasing liquid (teeny drops of suspended oil bond to pigments, oil and dirt) was birthed in France in the 1920s and has finally gotten a 21st-century tweak. Here are three new adaptations:
Sephora Collection Micellar Cleansing Water in Charcoal taps buzzy ingredient activated charcoal, known for its capacity to draw out debris from the epidermis for an ultra-deep clean. ($11), sephora.com.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water Wipes are fragrance-free and promise to clean skin and remove last night’s Altuzarra-inspired smudgy eye. ($10), walmart.ca.
NeoStrata Detoxifying Micellar Gel contains a plant extract called “celldetox” that helps reinforce the process of cell detoxification (and translates into cleaner skin and a faster uptake of your anti-aging serum). ($22), well.ca.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
Chapter 4,372 in the Drake/Rihanna love story: Drake, arguably the world's friendliest ex, gave RiRi a birthday shoutout during his concert in Dublin yesterday. (MELTING.) And since nothing is private anymore, obviously it was captured on someone's cell and blasted out to the world for us to replay over and over.
"It's somebody's birthday today—somebody I have a lot of love for and a lot of respect for," he said. "So, instead of singing 'Happy birthday,' though, we just going to do this in Dublin. Instead of singing 'Happy Birthday,' we're going to set it off just like this..."
Do you see a reunion in their future? Is the whole J.Lo thing over? We only know this: so happy RN.
It's safe to conclude that Selena Gomez's new single is not about her new relationship with The Weeknd, purely because it's about the sad demise of a relationship and last we checked the couple were going strong.
So is it about Justin Bieber then? Well, we'll let you listen and weave your own lyrics-based-theories, but it does reference "when we were seventeen" and calls out the ex-lover for too much partying, not enough stay-at-home time.
Most confusing of all, perhaps, is how incredibly catchy and upbeat this collab with Kygo is, given the majorly down beat lyrics. Seriously: You'll have "nah, nah, Bowery, nah, nah whiskey neat" in your head all day.
The launch tile for Instagram's latest update.
Instagram introduces a new posting option that will transform the way you curate your feed.
Instagram just announced its latest update, and it’s a big one. You’ll soon be able to share multiple photos and videos in a single post. A post can now act as a mini-album that documents anything from a party to a vacation, with users scrolling through to see it unfold.
How is this different from Instagram Stories, you ask? Unlike Stories, which disappear after 24 hours, these posts will remain on your feed.
Some might see this as the answer to repetitive posts (no more uploading the umpteenth party pic with the caption “Sorry, last one”) as well as a way to curate posts around a theme (just imagine a step-by-step makeup tutorial from Kylie Jenner in one post.)
A profile with Instagram's latest feature (note the new icon on the first post)
A new icon will appear which will allow you to select up to 10 photos and videos for a single post. You can filter and edit photos in a batch, or individually, as well as change the order of photos. Captions, location likes and comments apply to all the photos and videos in a post, but you’ll be able to tag friends individually. You won’t be able to remove individual photos or videos from within the post once it’s live.
Instagram's new multiple selection option
The update rolls out today for iPhone and Android and will go global within a few weeks.
