Per the report, Kanye’s potential new venture will cover a wide range of beauty products, including makeup, false eyelashes, facial masks, nail polish, moisturizers, bath gels, body oils, shaving cream, hair care products, and perfumes, as well as toothpaste, deodorant, scented pine cones, and aromatherapy pillows.
His pivot to cosmetics has been a long time coming. Back in 2017, he made a similar application under his Donda brand (named after his mother), but the plan never came to fruition.
