Platinum recording artist Trina launches Amazin’ Cosmetics and joins forces with The Carma Foundation
Platinum selling recording artist Katrina “Trina” Taylor, whose still reeling from the success of her 5th album AMAZIN’ which was released on May 4th, 2010 and debuted #1 on the Independent Billboard charts and #2 on the Billboard Rap Charts, is launching a cosmetics line this June titled Amazin’ Cosmetics. In conjunction with the launch of Amazin’ Cosmetics, Trina is joining forces with the Carma foundation for Amazing Gloss for An Amazing Cause to help raise funds to assist the orphans of Haiti devastated by the earthquake.
Trina’s “Baddest Chick” Collection includes two lines: Amazin Cosmetics and Million Dollar Girl apparel. The Amazin Cosmetic line debuted with Amazin’ Lip Wear which consists of a modern palette of vibrant lip glosses with a built in sponge applicator to give your lips an extra luscious boost of shine; Amazin’ Eyelashes which are re-usable glamorous diamond studded eyelashes that instantly give a stunning beautiful look. Each set comes with tweezers and adhesive; Finally, the Amazin’ Perfume line currently includes two fragrances Diamond Princess and Diamond Doll. Coming this fall the line will introduce a new fragrance “Pink Diamond”. Amazin cosmetics reflects Trina’s iconic presence and sex appeal as seen on stage or as she dazzles them on the red carpet. Amazin’ Cosmetics can be purchased at www.thebaddestchick.com .
Over the years, Trina has contributed greatly to various urban communities. Continuing with this same tradition, Amazin’ Cosmetics will partner with Melky Jean’s (Wycleff’s sister) Carma Foundation to assist orphans who continue to be impacted by the catastrophic event in Haiti. Trina was moved by the countless number of abandoned children left on the streets of Haiti and decided to “do something”. She pledged her support by donating a portion of the proceeds from gloss sales to assist Carma Foundation and the Mayor of Port Au Prince Haiti in restoring hope for the children of Haiti. Kicking off on June 13, 2010 in New York City, the Amazin Cosmetics line will launch the “Amazin Summer Challenge” encouraging city officials, celebrities/athletes and communities to get involved by donating Promise Packs from World Vision (www.worldvision.org) that includes hygiene products, school supplies, and to provide food and shelter for the children.

I’m reading the New York Daily News and come across a story about Roxana Shirazi, a rock groupie who recently wrote a tell-all book about the exploits of her, ahem, time with various rock stars. Members of groups such as Gun N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver, Papa Roach and Motley Crue, to name a few. I’m actually glad that this isn’t specific to Hip Hop artists and/or Black athletes and entertainers, but it seems to be the thing for hos, er, women to purposely go after these stars, accumulate the amount of men they sleep with and then write a book and/or do a video about their exploits!

In 2007, Eternia began recording her sophomore album with MoSS (a fellow Canadian), two years later the LP is complete and the title of the album says it all: At Last! Going where instinct took them, Eternia and MoSS’ collaborative union manifested into a sonically consistent album inspired by classic, boom-bap rap records (I.E. Ghostface Killah, Gangstarr, EPMD, Wu-Tang, & Nas).
MoSS is one of Hip-Hop’s fastest rising producers (see his work with Raekwon, Obie Trice, Ghostface, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, AZ, Slum Village, Havoc, Kool G Rap, KRS-One, Buckshot etc) and the first producer signed to DJ Premier’s “Works Of Mart” production company—needless to say, the classic boom-bap aesthetic is a lane MoSS is more then comfortable in.
