National Banana Split Day!

News of the Day:

+ During her CTRL tour stop in Toronto, perfect human SZA covered another perfect human, Cardi B, and it was truly magical. It wasn't long before Cardi saw the viral video of the "Bodak Yellow" cover and re-posted it to her Twitter page with a caption laced with love: "Gotta thank @sza for showing BODAK YELLOW some love. Means soo much." Hopefully, this will spark a future collab between the two.

+ Are you ready for this new Lush jelly? Because we so are! Lush just unveiled a new line of cooling jelly face masks made from natural ingredients. To use them, simply pinch off a piece of the mask and distribute between clean, dry hands before applying to face. The masks retail for $13.95 each and will be available online starting September 1.

+ NYX is looking to spread love and positivity through its latest release. The Luv Out Loud liquid lipstick collection features six shades—from a light pink to a deep plum—all named after qualities the brand wants their customers to feel empowered by. The brand has also launched the #LuvOutLoud campaign contest, where fans can take to Instagram and post a one-minute video explaining how they spread their love. The brand will donate $10,000 to the charity of the winner's choosing. You can purchase the lipsticks here.

+ Bing Bang just dropped its latest capsule collection, and it's empowering AF. The "GIRL POWER" line features compact mirrors, patches, buttons, necklaces, and rings decked out with messages of empowerment. The best part? 50 percent of every sale from the buttons is donated to organizations for women. You can shop the collection online or stop by the store's Chinatown location in NYC.

+ Your period is about to get a little less stressful, thanks to these brand-new cotton period briefs from Thinx. The comfortable panties are available in both black and gray and can hold up to two tampons' worth. Get yours here
