Everything We Know About Ariana Grande’s R.E.M Beauty Brand!
Claire Miles - September 9, 2021


By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

Seems like Ariana Grande isn’t slowing down anytime soon. The pop star can do it all. She has one of the most successful music careers, is a coach on The Voice, and even has a role in an upcoming Netflix film, Don’t Look Up. If that wasn’t impressive enough, rumor has it that she is launching her very own beauty brand, R.E.M., named after one of the tracks on her album Sweetener. Yup, this is real life right now. This comes after her many fragrance lines, which are best-selling by the way. She clearly knows what she’s doing and is taking a deeper dive into the cosmetics realm. we are all in and want to know everything we can so we can get our hands on some products!

I don’t know about you, but we are seriously freaking out right now. Ari can slap her name on just about anything, and we’ll buy it. But here’s what we know about the new brand so far. There was an Instagram account and new website that mysteriously popped up recently called r.e.m. Beauty. If you go to the United States Patent and Trademark Office website, you can find the r.e.m. trademark. Pretty sneaky, huh? There you can find a list of different products like concealers, eyeshadows, highlights, and even hair extensions. Grande has already blessed us with so much already with her voice and perfumes, how is it even possible that there’s more?!


We all want to get glammed up like Ari, and we can just feel the opportunity right at our fingertips. Fans even noticed billboards up in Times Square to further prove this rumor. It makes sense this is happening now, after all, she does have two songs on her last two albums named “Make Up” and “My Hair.” She even sang in her Thank u, next album about makeup and gave a shoutout to Rihanna saying,  “No eyeliner on, but looking at you is the fix / Highlight of my life, just like that Fenty Beauty kit.” If we had to guess, Ari will probably be announcing the launch any day now. We’ll just be waiting while we play “Make Up” on repeat.
