Caitlyn Jenner files trademark for cosmetic line in her name

The Jenners are taking over the beauty industry. Kylie and Kendall can move over as Caitlyn Jenner may be cooking up her own cosmetics line, which will cover products the sisters have yet to release. The 66-year-old recently filed to trademark the release of beauty products exclusively under her famous name, TMZ reported. KENDALL AND KYLIE JENNER RELEASE TEASER FOR GAME ON TWITTER Kylie and Kendall Jenner have already had massive success with their beauty products. And, stores could soon carry more than makeup from the “I am Cait” star. Jenner’s paperwork also covered fragrances, makeup removers, nail polish and skin care products. It’s a brilliant move if it follows in the successful footsteps of her daughters. Last year, Kylie Jenner’s highly coveted lip kit sold out in seconds and she now has her own Kylie Cosmetics line. Her older sister is also a beauty star in her own right, having just released a shimmery glow-in-the-dark eye shadow palette with Estée Lauder. It’s still unclear how Jenner plans to tackle her beauty business, the gossip site said, but the reality star wanted to make sure her name was off the market. It’s been a busy month for Jenner, who recently revealed she’s also breaking into the literary world with a memoir. Continue Reading

Caitlyn Jenner raves about M.A.C. Cosmetics

Caitlyn Jenner is already shilling like a Kardashian. In a new video on her website, the transgender reality star says that M.A.C. Cosmetics is her favorite makeup brand. "I think they do a great job," she says in the 52-second clip on her website. "I love their coverage." TRANSGENDER FAN OF KIM K. SPENDS $100K TO LOOK LIKE STAR The love was mutual, M.A.C. said in a statement to the Daily News. "We’re so happy to hear that Caitlyn is a fan of our products," it read. "We’re a huge fan of hers as well." It’s not the first time a Kardashian has raved about the edgy line, which has counted Rihanna and Lady Gaga as spokeswomen. “If you were to look at my makeup bag right now, it has a little MAC 182 Buffer Brush,” Kim Kardashian told Into the Gloss in 2012. More recently, she told Glamour last year that little sis Kylie loves the line’s “Soar” and “Spice” lipsticks. Of course, the first family of reality television has made its fortune partially by hawking a diverse array of products, like Silly Bandz, toilet paper and even intimacy oil. Some ventures — like a Kardashian-approved credit card and line of weight-loss footwear — ultimately went bust. Jenner’s 52-second vid — shot on a selfie-stick! — is for fans wondering how her skincare has changed since transitioning, she wrote on "I get asked about my skin care all the time and wanted to share some insight with you," she wrote. Jenner did not give a shout-out to the Kardashian Beauty line, founded by her stepdaughters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe. But she did reveal other tidbits: She had her beard removed in the 1980s, and she never had a makeup artist until she hired celeb go-to Kip Zachary for her E! docuseries, "I Am Cait." "It's television — you want to look good," she says. No word on if she’ll wear MAC if she walks the Continue Reading

Caitlyn Jenner is the new face of H&M Sport

Caitlyn Jenner announced she is working with H&M on their athletic line in the manner the rest of her family has perfected -- an Instagram with behind-the-scenes image.In a pair of black leggings and trainers with flowing hair swept to the side, Jenner teases the partnership saying there will be more to come. Oh, we're sure there will be, and not just with H&M. She is finally a full, active member of the family business, and it's about time.Remember the days when Jenner was a background player in Keeping Up With the Kardashians, hiding a bit from the camera and the limelight? It feels so fitting -- now that she says she's comfortable in her own skin -- that she's become the star of her own show and getting in on the product lines and endorsements.Like daughter Kylie, she's entered the makeup world with MAC and has a signature lipstick coming out on April 7. Named Finally Free, the shade is an everyday, rosy nude hue, which Jenner said was purposefully designed to be universal. She explained the very personal inspiration behind the name in an interview with MAC.Yes, Caitlyn, you really are. Continue Reading

Transgender teen emerges from bathroom debate

On a spring night nearly three years ago, 15-year-old Maddie Dalton sat in her Louisville home, squinting at her phone – her fingers typing, deleting and rewriting.She was crafting a Facebook post that would change her life and identity. The stakes were high, but even then, she didn’t realize how high.“If you don’t know already, my name is Maddie,” she typed. “And I’m a girl.”She took a deep breath and hit send.“I knew once I did that, there was no going back,” she said.It’s been nearly three years since Maddie became the first student at Louisville’s Atherton High to come out as a transgender woman. Her subsequent push for a policy allowing her to use the women’s bathroom and locker room sparked a fiery public controversy in 2014 that made national headlines, even as her parents kept her largely anonymous. ► READ MORE:  Trans bathroom bill loses steam with Ky GOPThe issue has since become a flashpoint in the battle over transgender rights. The U.S. Supreme Court next spring will take up a similar school case from Virginia. And on Wednesday, North Carolina lawmakers were considering whether to repeal a controversial law forcing transgender people to use bathrooms in government buildings corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates, a move that sparked boycotts and protests.But such debates often obscure the everyday struggles of transgender teens such as Maddie, whose fights to redefine themselves plays out beyond the public eye and well beyond school bathrooms.In some ways, transgender awareness is on the rise. More schools are accommodating such students, if often more quietly, advocates say. The military this year allowed transgender soldiers to serve openly. Figures like Caitlyn Jenner and the first transgender girl on the cover of National Geographic this month have raised unprecedented visibility,But transgender people still face disproportionately Continue Reading

Readers sound off on union labor, the Jenner switch and the crime debate

Unions are building a strong city Manhattan: Errol Louis’ June 2 column “The casualties of the 421-a feud” made a few important and factual errors which I thought were extremely important to correct. According to a 2013 study by the Economic Policy Institute, the actual number of black unionized workers is 21.3%, which is significantly higher than the 13% cited in the column. In fact, it’s in the non-union construction sector where blacks are severely underrepresented (13.8% according to the EPI study). Furthermore, a Columbia University study on the Building Trades’ Edward J. Malloy Construction Skills pre-apprenticeship program reported that almost 90% of the enrolled youth are black, Hispanic or Asian, with 100% coming from the five boroughs. This program represents the future of the trades as they will soon be apprentices and then full journeymen and women. The BCTC takes great pride in its effort to diversify the trades over the years primarily through initiatives like our pre-apprenticeship program, which is a strong indicator of the future makeup of the unionized construction industry. Unfortunately, the real demographic makeup of the unionized trades and the role of unions in facilitating this didn’t make it into Louis’ column. Gary LaBarbera, president, Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York Good jobs, good wages Long Island City: Errol Louis seems to mislead readers about the importance of prevailing wages for New York construction projects and instead advocates for modern-day serfdom. Highly skilled New York City construction workers should be paid a prevailing wage, to afford to live in the city where they work, have medical care and some semblance of retirement security. New York’s $36 billion annual construction economy employs 123,000, but the reality is many non-union, hourly hires survive on poverty wages, with little safety equipment or training and generally lack Continue Reading

How film, TV have explored the scope of racial identity for decades

While largely unheard of in the real world, a person identifying themselves with another race is hardly unique. Rachel Dolezal exits her home with an adopted persona -- set off by an ethnic hairstyle, a contrived complexion, and her culture-cred as the President of the NAACP branch in Spokane, Wash., intact. The white activist who started living as a black woman a decade ago, was exposed on Thursday, a takedown assisted by her estranged parents. “It’s interesting and it’s complicated,” Marc Lamont Hill, Professor of African American Studies at Morehouse College told the Daily News. “This story could allow us to talk about race in a much different way.” Dolezal’s presentation to society may seem surprising, but this trope is an old one, as seen on TV and in films for decades. Eddie Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., and even the Wayans Brothers have all been there and done that. Robert Thompson, Director of the Bleier Center for Television & Popular Culture at Syracuse University found the timing interesting. “It’s fascinating; for the last few months we’ve held this gender identity discussion,” he explained. “With Caitlyn Jenner, we’ve had all these object lessons and we realized that the idea of being true to who you are may not be as simple as we thought.” Dolezal’s careful positioning over the span of a decade was wonderfully believable, fooling members of one of America’s oldest civil rights organizations, an entire university, and hundreds of types along the peregrination from Montana’s rugged terrains. But again, her Oscar-worthy performance has been done before. James Whitmore portrayed a white reporter by the name of John Finley Horton in 1964’s “Black Like Me.” Horton wanted to experience life as a black man in the Deep South. Similar to the effect of Dolezal’s tanning; he painted himself in black shoe Continue Reading

Readers sound off on gun nuts, cop hustles and cheating players

Not the worst ain't good enough Syosset, L.I.: In “Myths of American gun violence (Op-Ed, June 24), John Lott makes all the usual arguments: that the U.S. isn’t “worst” country when it comes to gun violence, that background checks would not have stopped the Newtown or Charleston killings and so on. But the fact that the U.S. is not the worst country when it comes to gun violence is not something to be proud of. Lott notes that Switzerland “enjoys one of the lowest homicide rates in Europe,” despite widespread gun ownership. Good for them, but their low homicide rate may have more to do with the cultural, political and economic makeup of the country, rather than gun ownership. Factoring in those variables, the U.S. may have more in common with Russia than it has with Switzerland. In the end though, it doesn’t matter. The U.S. should not be comparing itself to other countries, finding comfort in not being the “worst.” We need to do whatever we can to be the best. When an incident occurs, it should not be met with “background checks wouldn’t have helped anyway.” We should be able to say “We did everything we could. We enforced every law designed to keep guns out of the hands of the bad guy. It may not have been enough in this case, but who knows how many other bad guys were thwarted?” We have to do all we can to stop this senseless violence, and I don’t think adding more guns to the mix is the answer. Elena Andrusezko Good guys with guns Staten Island: Voicer Paul Richard doesn’t state all the facts. Harvard found that for intentional deaths, the U.S. falls behind Russia, Estonia and four other countries, ranking seventh. In Russia, where guns are banned, the murder rate is significantly higher than in the U.S. The U.S. had a lower rate of mass shooting fatalities with 0.15 per 100,000 people, than Norway (1.3 per 100,000), Finland (0.34 per Continue Reading

Readers sound off on hipsters, heartache and hatred

We all miss vanishing New York Brooklyn: So, only hipsters complain about “vanishing NYC”? (“The city’s healthy beating heart,” Op-Ed, June 2). I guess Francis Morrone doesn’t know any schoolteachers, UPS or FedEx drivers, office managers, dental technicians, manicurists, janitors, carpenters, electricians, nurses, midwives, doulas, home-aide caretakers, masseuses, physical therapists, school-lunch ladies, food-service workers, retail employees, copy editors, film editors, proofreaders, paralegals, mailroom employees, messengers, graphic designers, set designers, costume designers, makeup artists, face-painting artists, clowns, storytellers, stand-ups, shoemakers, tailors, veterinarians, bakers or owners of bodegas, delis or other small businesses. As for me, I’m just another Puerto Rican who grew up in the Bronx in the 1970s (yes, that Bronx) and now lives in Brooklyn (yes, that Brooklyn). As such, I’m most likely as far removed from Morrone’s and Nikolai Fedak’s (It’s a golden age,” Op-Ed, June 2) regular orbits as the Ferengi Alliance from Star Trek’s “Deep Space Nine” are from mine. Essays such as these are disrespectful to the natives and transplants who are the true heart and soul of New York City. Michele Carlo Chickens, eggs, bullets, bodies Pearl River, N.Y. A question for Mayor de Blasio, who attempted to deflect the rise in murders after his progressive administration ended stop-and-frisk by citing new technologies: Has it occured to you that Shot Spotter only works after a shot is fired and a victim potentially killed, whereas stop-and-frisk prevents potential shootings before they happen? Mike Sheridan Wake up call Brooklyn: Doesn’t anyone get it? Without stop-and-frisk being fully implemented, gun crimes, violence and murders go up. Most of the crimes are by blacks against blacks. Our children are dying and others are going to Continue Reading

Caitlyn Jenner’s stylists reveal inspiration for Vanity Fair cover shoot

For Caitlyn Jenner's big reveal on the cover of Vanity Fair, stylists took their cues from one particularly iconic cover girl. "We looked to Cindy Crawford's hair for inspiration, which is always glamorous but natural-looking," hairstylist Oribe explained in the glossy mag's behind-the-scenes look at Jenner's cover shoot. "I wanted to create a glamorous look that I normally do for any woman, and sexuality was very important in this context," the hairdressing mogul said. "Bruce was one of the sexiest men alive, and I thought it was equally as important for Caitlyn to be a sexy woman," he said. Hairdresser Oribe said he looked to Cindy Crawford (r.) as inspiration for Caitlyn Jenner's (l.) Vanity Fair cover. Meanwhile, the shoot's makeup artist, Mark Carrasquillo, said his goal was to give the 65-year-old Olympian a soft look that highlighted her naturally stunning facial features, rather than contour her like a Kardashian. "I didn't want her to look like a man in a dress. I wanted her to look like a beautiful 65-year-old woman," Carrasquillo said. Celeb stylists who spoke to the News hailed the job. "She looks amazing," stylist Robert Verdi told the News Monday. "If Jessica Lange, Brooke Shields, Cindy Crawford and Jaclyn Smith were combined in a blender and poured out, this is who you would get. She's very sexy and seductive and youthful." To achieve the classy look, the VF crew, which included celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann, turned to a battery of top shelf beauty products, many from their own signature lines. The red nail polish she used: Lady Is a Tramp. "And of course Caitlyn laughed when I told her the name of the shade," Lippmann explained with a chuckle. Oribe, a Cuban-born stylist who has tended to the tresses of scores of A-list cover girls, called the gig an experience he won't soon forget. "This was such an important shoot for me in my career, Continue Reading
