Celebrities know all about beauty

So what is it about musicians coming out with things that aren’t related to their singing skills? It seems as if we’re in the era of any sort of celebrity (whether it be a musician or actress/actor) can come out with their own clothing line, perfume, or jewelry. Who knew that these things would be popular either. Over the years, we’ve seen perfumes released by Hilary Duff, Kim Kardashian, and even Britney Spears. Make up lines have become popular now. It’s easy to go into Sephora and purchase makeup personally designed by Kat Von D. Anyway to bank in money, celebrities take the jump.

Nicki Minaj, the newest to release a product other than music has taken the world by surprise. During the release of her album, “Pink Friday”, she had released a pink lipstick through cosmetic company, M.A.C. This lipstick is only available for three Friday’s before it can be no longer purchased. These lipsticks go for about $14.50 a pop and sold out the first Friday they were released.

Katy Perry is yet another to release a perfume. You have to give her credit for the cat shaped bottle called “Purr” because it almost seems worth the money. This perfume can only be purchased at Nordstrom in two different sizes. It went along with her playful charm and her obsession with all things cats so it was not in the least bit surprising. The small bottle runs for about $45 and the bigger bottle runs for $65 which is actually affordable in the perfume market.
