The beauty market abounds with an array of products from brands owned by stars and it doesn’t seem to slow down anytime soon. Consequently, new celebrity beauty and skincare brands released in 2022 have piqued the interests of beauty enthusiasts worldwide.
Celebrity-owned beauty brands often grab eyeballs even before they get launched. Be it Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner, Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty, Priyanka Chopra’s Anomaly, Pleasing by Harry Styles or Lady Gaga’s Haus Laboratories, several noted artists are dominating the beauty world nowadays.
Natural active ingredients including hyaluronic acid, squalane and vitamin c, make these beauty products soothing to the skin and even more appealing for takers. Celebrities also take special care to keep their own brands free of chemicals and synthetic ingredients as well as strive to make sustainability as one of the strongest pillars supporting their products.
