It looks like Olympian gymnast Gabby Douglas will soon be adding beauty mogul to her impressive resume. It’s just been announced that the three-time gold medalist has teamed up with Beauty Bakerie on a new line of lip products. Douglas designed five new shades of Lip Whips, the brand’s cult matte liquid lipsticks, which will be sold together as a set for $80.
“I am so excited about this partnership with Beauty Bakerie,” Douglas said in a press release. “Being Better not Bitter [the brand’s motto] is very similar to my personal motto, ‘Hard days are the best because that's when champions are made.’ It's easy to allow negativity or hard circumstances to keep you from chasing your dreams. However, it is very important that you always stay positive and surround yourself with others who share the same mindset.”
Beauty Bakerie has long been a favorite of NYLON, and I can personally vouch for how incredibly long-lasting, yet moisturizing, the formulas are. Could this be the official lipstick of the 2020 Tokyo games? We’ll just have to wait and see.
We don't have any more information regarding what her five shades will be (or what kickass empowering names they'll surely have) just yet but keep an eye out for Douglas’ exclusive set launching this March.
