Ask a beauty vlogger what their favourite concealer is and they'll most likely say Tape Shape by Tarte Cosmetics. The product has been such a hit that the brand decided to launch a foundation to match. POPSUGAR was one of the first websites to test the new Shape Tape Foundations and let's just say the shade range isn't exactly a rainbow. Twitter responded with a churning wave of fury. People called out the brand for launching a non-inclusive colour range on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Fans were hyped over the release of Tarte Cosmetics' Shape Tape Foundation – until it actually dropped and they saw the color range. The internet exploded with angry comments, accusing Tarte of being non-inclusive to women of color. In response to the backlash, Tarte quietly confirmed to POPSUGAR that they will be releasing ten more inclusive colors ASAP. "We're always pushing ourselves and suppliers to work as quickly as possible," the brand rep said.
Imagine – strolling through the aisles of CVS Pharmacy, shopping for deodorant and Flamin' Hot Cheetos, when out of nowhere KYLIE JENNER'S FULLY-FORMED BABY BUMP SHOWS UP. According to BACKGRID, eyewitnesses spotted the Life of Kylie star shopping in a CVS near Cedar Sinai Hospital in L.A. She tried to hide the evidence behind an oversized green hoodie, but thankfully (seriously, thank GOD) it's still visible. Unless Kylie is reeeeeally messing with us – this pregnancy is real.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
