From touring nationwide, to even recently gracing the silver screen as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Harry Styles has taken on new ventures and surprised the beauty community with his new line – Pleasing.
The intentions for the brand are described as wanting to help people find “little moments of joy” as said by Harry Styles in the winter issue of Dazed, along with him “seeing a colour on a flower or a wallpaper or something and thinking, ‘Oh, I wanna put that on my nails.’”
The products themselves are cruelty-free, vegan, biodegradable, and made with plant-based solvents. Additionally, for their first-ever drop, Pleasing is partnering with Nest – a nonprofit 501(c)(3) supporting the responsible growth and creative engagement of the artisan & maker economy to build a world of greater gender equity and economic inclusion.
Diving into the actual products is where eyebrows have been raised. A single nail polish retails for $20 while the Perfect Polish Set with 4 polishes goes for $65. All shades are designed to either work independently or with other polishes.
Perfect Pearl – Pearlized white with a glossy finish.
Pearly Tops – A clear with a subtle iridescent and a matte finish.
Inkey Pearl – A black polish with a deep blue radiance.
Granny’s Pink – Pearlescent pink with a glossy finish.
(The set includes 3 alphabets of decals to customize the nail look)
On the skincare side, two products are now available for pre-order along with the nail polishes. First is the Pleasing Pen, consisting of 2-in-1 refreshing eye gel and matte lip oil retailing for $30. The eye gel’s key ingredients include natural lingonberry, okra, and hyaluronic salt to help the under eyes. The lip oil contains marshmallows to replenish lips.
The second product is the Pearlescent Illuminating Serum containing Vitamin B5, Antioxidants, and Amino Acids for all skin types. (The mica used is also ethically sourced). The half-ounce serum is meant to be moisturizing for a variety of skin types.
Overall, there has already been speculation over the prices of the line as they range from $20-$65. This could likely be over the sustainability and ethical process of both sourcing and manufacturing the products with many hoping that the quality is worth a higher price. At the end of the day, even if fans don’t want to splurge on the beauty line, we can all still enjoy his music. I think this Twitter user said it best:
