Beauty retailer Mecca has announced its six bestselling and innovative products in Australia for 2020.

The brand’s annual ‘Beauty Election’ sees the best newcomer products, the best overall, best moisturiser, mascara, foundation, body scrub and cleanser voted upon.

But one of the most ‘to-watch categories’ according to Mecca is the ‘Best Innovator: The Beauty Game Changer’, a lineup of ‘ground-breaking products that standout from the crowd for their next-level formulas, intuitive design or ability to make our lives easier’.  

1. Bumble Pret a Powder Post Workout Dry Shampoo

‘This is my number one gym bag essential and has been a game-changer for solving my sweaty hair post workout. Plus, it leaves no white cast which is huge for me as I have dark hair,’ Rumble’s founding trainer Erika Hammond said of the product.

This ultra-gentle vegan, exfoliating watermelon infused toner ($54) leaves skin supple and bouncy after every application, the brand claims.

It’s enriched with non-irritating, effective acids that help to decongest skin and unclog pores, like hyaluronic acid, and cactus water delivers deep hydration and nourishes the skin.

‘It is inspired by the Korean Aqua Peel Facial, which focuses on the division of exfoliating and hydrating to achieve instantly luminous, pillow-soft skin,’ Mecca said.

Co-founders of Glow Recipe Sarah Lee and  Christine Chang urge customers to soak reusable cotton rounds in the toner and place them on all areas of the face, especially the places that need more pore refining like the forehead and nose.

‘Let the pads sink into skin for up to 10 minutes and then rinse off to reveal a pore-less, hydrated glow,’ they said.

This $53 setting spray is a vegan, weightless microfine mist that refreshes skin while mattifying and setting your makeup in place for up to 16 hours.

‘I have got really oily skin and have struggled to find a really mattifying spray, but this one is the best. Keeps my makeup in place all day,’ one woman wrote online.

Kayleigh McEnany holds car crash White House briefing, prompting furious tirade by Fox News reporter

kayleigh mcenany holds car crash white house briefing prompting furious tirade by fox news reporter

Press secretary Kayleigh McEnany sparred, withdrew, advanced, and attacked in a contentious briefing with reporters on Thursday as the White House ramps up its defense strategy six weeks away from the election.

McEnany bickered repeatedly with the press in her 25 minute briefing. The topics included a river where President Donald Trump claimed absentee ballots were found and about his comments on white supremacists. 

And, in a rare backstep for the press secretary, she also apologized for making a mistake about Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s academic record.  

The back-and-forths from McEnany were reminiscent of President Donald Trump’s posture at Tuesday’s presidential debate, when he repeatedly interrupted and talked over his Democratic rival Joe Biden.  

McEnany acknowledged the parallels as tension rose in the room as she deflected questions on several controversies involving the president and reporters kept asking them. People talked over one another. McEnany attempted to regain order. The atmosphere grew chilly as the briefing ticked on.

After the briefing, Fox News Chief White House correspondent John Roberts went on cable network to call out McEnany: ‘So stop deflecting. Stop blaming the media. I’m tired of it’

After being asked by several reporters to clarify – in simple, straight forward language – whether or not the president condemned white supremacists, she snapped back. 

‘We’re not having a debate on a cable news network right now. You need to let me finish,’ she said. ‘It’s quite funny that the media goes haywire about interrupting in debates and then chooses to pursue that very same tactic themselves.’ 

Fox News Chief White House correspondent John Roberts, in a stunning display of anger and frustration, went on his cable news network – of which President Trump is a frequent viewer – to slam McEnany. 

‘For all of you on Twitter who are hammering me for asking the question, I don’t care because it’s a question that needs to be asked and clearly the president’s Republican colleagues a mile away from here are looking for an answer for it, too. So stop deflecting. Stop blaming the media. I’m tired of it,’ he said from the White House lawn with the executive mansion visible behind him.

After his appearance, McEnany took to twitter to refer to a post from his wife, ABC News correspondent Kyra Phillips, who had questioned the president on Wednesday about his white supremacist comments in the debate.

 ‘@johnrobertsFox I would refer you to your wife’s reporting from 21 hours ago… accurate reporting I cited in the White House Press Briefing,’ McEnany wrote.

‘Just now: ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ tells me he DENOUNCES white supremacists,’ Phillips wrote. 

Trump had come under fire from Biden and some members of his own party for failing to condemn white supremacists when given the chance on the debate stage.

‘I’ve always denounced any form of any of that,’ the president said Wednesday on the South Lawn of the White House before he left for Minnesota. ‘Any form of that you have to denounce.’

But additional questions were raised when the president didn’t give a straight yes or no answer. 

Roberts started off Wednesday’s press briefing when he got the first question and asked: ‘If I could start off, I would like to ask you for a definitive and declarative statement without ambiguity or deflection. As the person who speaks for the president, does the president denounce white supremacists.’

The briefing descended into chaos from there with McEnany trying to answer questions reporters fired at her, both sides talking over the other repeatedly. 

CBS’ Paula White and CNN’s Kaitlan Collins also asked her to clarify President Trump’s remarks on white supremacy. 

‘The president has denounced it repeatedly. The president was asked this. You are contriving a story line and narrative,’ McEnany told reporters. 

That was in the first five minutes. Next McEnany had clarify her remarks about President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. 

In her opening statement at the briefing, McEnany called Barrett a ‘Rhodes scholar.’ 

The Rhodes Scholarship is a prestigious academic award to study at Oxford University in England. Each year 32 are awarded. Past recipients include President Bill Clinton, retired General Wesley Clark, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

‘She also is a Rhodes scholar,’ McEnany said of Trump’s nominee. Barrett actually received her BA from Rhodes College in Tennessee.

‘You said Justice Barrett was a Rhodes scholar. I don’t know if that’s true,’ Bloomberg’s Justin Sink said to the press secretary.

‘That’s what I have written here,’ McEnany replied.

Upon being told Barrett attended Rhodes College in Tennessee, McEnany said: ‘Attended Rhodes College. So my bad.’ 

The White House, led by President Trump, has taken a more defensive posture since polls show him trailing Biden both nationally and in several key states. 

In one memorable back-and-forth, McEnany refused to name the river where President Trump claimed several mail-in ballots had been dumped. The president has been a vocal critical of mail-in voting, saying it will lead to a ‘rigged’ election but has offered no proof of his allegations.

Fox Radio correspondent Jon Decker asked Trump’s claim that some people found ballots in a river. He asked McEnany multiple times to name the river where the ballots were found and who found them. 

She never gave a name and indicated it was actually a ditch the ballots were found in. 

‘Local authorities. A ditch if Wisconsin where they were found. That’s what the president was referring to. You are missing the forest for the trees,’ McEnany told him.

Trump said of the ballots: ‘There’s fraud. They found them in creeks. … They are being dumped in rivers. This is a horrible thing for our country.’ 

He appeared to be referring to a situation in Wisconsin where three trays of mail were found in a ditch off a highway. The mail trays included a variety of mail and not just absentee ballots. It’s also unclear if those ballots had ever been filled out. There is an ongoing investigation. 

Kayleigh McEnany also didn't name the river where President Trump claimed mail-in ballots were found after being asked to repeatedly by Fox Radio reporter Jon Decker

‘I cover the news and I like to report accurately in the news. When the president said they found a lot of ballots in the river. Where is the river?,’ Decker said to her.

‘You want to ignore the fact of the matter,’ she told him. 

‘I got asked so many questions. Where is this river? I want to have accurate information and that’s why I’m asking you,’ he replied.

McEnany then pivoted to a situation in Pennsylvania under investigation where nine mail-in ballots were found in the trash, seven of which were Trump votes. 

‘This is what is happening here. You are ignoring the problem here. Last week in Pennsylvania you had ballots found in a ditch. That’s a fact. In Wisconsin seven military ballots marked for Trump were found cast aside,’ she said. ‘I don’t understand the lack of journalistic curiosity on that.’

‘Where is the river? That’s curiosity,’ Decker said.  ‘I am asking you where the river is and you’re not giving an answer.’

Leader of Proud Boys is state director of Latinos for Trump

leader of proud boys is state director of latinos for trump

The leader of the Proud Boys, the ‘white supremacist’ group at the center of the presidential debate furor, is a state director of Latinos for Trump and ran for Congress as a Republican, DailyMail.com can reveal.

Donald Trump told the Proud Boys to ‘stand back and stand by’ after he was asked to denounce their alleged white supremacist views during the presidential debate Tuesday night.

Afterwards Trump’s son and spokesman both tried to downplay the comment, calling it a ‘misspeak’. The president backpedaled on Wednesday telling reporters he had never heard of the group.

But DailyMail.com can reveal the Proud Boys national chairman, Enrique Tarrio, is close to the Republican party, having been pictured with the president’s son Don Jr. and currently serving as the Florida state director of the political support group Latinos for Trump.

National chairman of the Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio has close ties with the GOP and was previously pictured with Donald Trump Jr. He posted this photo online captioned, 'Blurry but at least we spoke about the rampant censorship of conservatives'

Tarrio, 36, has been pictured with Trump confidant Roger Stone who is a Proud Boys member, the president’s son Don Jr., Florida governor Rick Scott and senior Republican senator Ted Cruz, who co-sponsored a Senate resolution based on a petition written by Tarrio to designate the anarchist left wing group Antifa as a ‘domestic terrorist organization’. 

Trump lent his support to the proposal, which ultimately failed, tweeting in August last year, ‘Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ‘ORGANIZATION OF TERROR’.’

Tarrio posted a selfie of him and Donald Trump Jr. online with the caption: ‘Blurry but at least we spoke about the rampant censorship of conservatives’. 

He’s also been pictured with former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw.

Tarrio was also caught on camera at the infamous 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, wearing body armor and a badge with the insignia of the ‘Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights’, a paramilitary wing of the Proud Boys.

He claims he left before violence erupted at the march.

The business owner and Miami-born son of Cuban immigrants was promoted from president of his city’s Proud Boys chapter to become the group’s national chairman in November 2018.

Tarrio, who runs a security equipment firm, claims the Proud Boys has a ‘similar atmosphere’ to his Cuban upbringing and in a 2018 interview described his Miami chapter as ‘a frat with a political lean.’

He told the Miami New Times his parents became conservative after fleeing Castro’s Cuba.

‘My house, at like 7 o’clock in the morning, there’s like 20 people in my house, talking about politics, roasting each other, just making fun of each other. I was brought up in that environment, so that kind of brings me into the f***ery that comes along with being a Proud Boy,’ he said.

Despite supporting Trump’s criticism of ‘lawless’ Democrat-run cities, as a younger man Tarrio had several run-ins with the law.

Age 20 in 2004, he was sentenced to three years probation for stealing a motorcycle worth $55,000, and in 2013, he was sentenced to 16 months in federal prison for his part in a scheme to sell stolen diabetic test strip kits.

Tarrio has previously been banned from Twitter for breaking the site’s rules on ‘violent extremist groups’. He has slammed Twitter’s decision and says he denounces hate and racism.

But Tarrio has posted messages on Proud Boys online groups including: ‘This [website] to get filled up with Proud Boys, not no f**got a** photogs!’ and ‘B**ch n****r f**got tra**y. Stress test 3,’ according to screenshots obtained by the Miami New Times.

He has also described transexual women as ‘it’ on Facebook, and posted a picture of Trump with the words ‘grab her by the p**sy’ and his own caption: ‘Only way to grab it…..if you ask me.’

Other members have posted messages praising the Holocaust and mass murderers in their private group chats, the paper reported.

The Cuban-American, who ran as a Republican to represent Florida’s 27th Congressional District this year but withdrew before the party’s primary in August, said he wrote his slurs as a joke and to promote free speech.

‘We are not a white-power group, and I am not a victim,’ he told the New Times. ‘I just think I should be able to say what I want and to express my support of Trump without being called a Nazi.’

The Proud Boys was originally started as a joke by Vice Media co-founder Gavin McInnes in 2016, naming it after the Aladdin song, ‘Proud of Your Boy.’

The organization grew from gatherings of men in New York dive bars frustrated with politically correct culture, that ‘usually consist of drinking, fighting, and reading aloud from Pat Buchanan’s Death of the West,’ according to McInnes.

As its numbers swelled to an estimated 6,000 members, the group became known for its ‘Western chauvinism’ – a mix of misogynist and anti-Muslim rhetoric, and for violent clashes with anti-fascist groups in New York and the Pacific North West.

In 2018 the FBI sent a warning to Washington police departments calling the Proud Boys an ‘extremist group’ that was recruiting in their areas and that members ‘have contributed to the recent escalation of violence at political rallies held on college campuses, and in cities like Charlottesville, Virginia, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington.’

An Oregon bureau chief later backtracked, saying they did not mean to label the group as extremist, and a spokeswoman said, ‘Our focus is not on membership in particular groups but on individuals who commit violence and criminal activity.’

But violence has followed the Proud Boys across the country for years. 

The unofficial uniform of the Proud Boys is a black and yellow Fred Perry polo shirt – which is, bizarrely, a clothing choice they share with many in the gay BDSM community who often wear similar shirts at fetish-fueled sex parties.

Gay men’s sex shops sell rubber and latex polo shirts in the style of Fred Perry shirts, some with the same color scheme of black with yellow stripes.

‘The standard Proud Boy polo shirt, from Fred Perry, is a massive thing in the US gay BDSM community,’ a member of the community told DailyMail.com. ‘It’s something like a code, and is worn often and regularly, at gatherings. It will likely be curtailed now, due to the Proud Boys now having co-opted the shirts and logos.’

Seven members pleaded guilty to charges including riot, disorderly conduct and attempted assault after fights broke out with protesters at a Proud Boys event in New York in 2018. 

After clashing with the far-left anarchist group Antifa, Proud Boys members Maxwell Hare, 27, and John Kinsman, 40, were convicted of attempted gang assault, attempted assault and riot in August last year and sentenced to four years in prison.

On Wednesday Portland Police arrested Proud Boys member Alan Swinney after he allegedly pulled a real gun on Black Lives Matter protesters, shot them with a paintball gun and sprayed them with mace.

When Trump failed to denounce the group and instead told them to ‘stand by’ during the presidential debate on Tuesday, some Proud Boys members interpreted it as a rallying cry to fight Antifa, with others even making $40 t-shirts emblazoned with the phrase ‘Proud Boys Standing By’.

The group’s unofficial uniform is a black and yellow Fred Perry polo shirt.

Membership of the Proud Boys is reportedly broken into four degrees. Men become first degree members by simply declaring: ‘I am a western chauvinist, and I refuse to apologize for creating the modern world,’ – a pledge Roger Stone has made on camera.

To reach the second degree, members must demonstrate ‘adrenaline control’ in a bizarre ritual where they are beaten until they yell the names of five breakfast cereals.

Following the shout out several members of the group appeared to pledge their allegiance to the president. One social media account connected to the organization even appeared to made 'Stand back. Stand by' part of a new logo

A third degree member must get a Proud Boys tattoo and give up watching pornography and masturbating.

Fourth degree members suffer some hardship including being fired from their job for being a Proud Boy, being publicly ‘doxxed’ or identified as a member, or engaging in violence with Antifa.

The Unite the Right neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville was organized by Proud Boy second degree member Jason Kessler.

After the rally, Kessler was expelled by then-president McInnes in an attempt to distance the group from white supremacism.

Though both McInnes and Tarrio have denounced racism, the former has a long history of incendiary public comments.

When a New York Press reporter asked him what he thought about his neighbors in his Williamsburg, New York, neighborhood in 2002, he said: ‘Well, at least they’re not n*****s or Puerto Ricans. At least they’re white.’

On his show, McInnes has made several offensive comments including calling women ‘dumb’. ‘Maybe the reason I’m sexist is because women are dumb. No, I’m just kidding, ladies. But you do tend to not thrive in certain areas — like writing,’ he said in 2017.

McInnes has also said ‘Palestinians are stupid. Muslims are stupid. And the only thing they really respect is violence and being tough,’ and has referred to transgender people as ‘gender n*****s’ and ‘stupid lunatics.’

A spokesman for Tarrio released a statement Wednesday saying the Proud Boys has ‘longstanding regulations prohibiting racist, white supremacist or violent activity’ adding that ‘we do not care what color you are or what your background is … if you love America … we consider you a brother.’

Tarrio himself later said Trump wasn’t endorsing Proud Boys with what he said.

He told NBC Miami, ‘He didn’t condemn us. He didn’t promote us either. What ‘stand by’ means is stand by me.’

He added: ‘The president was asked a very poignant question. He was asked about white supremacy and he was asked to disavow white supremacy. Biden cut him off and said our name.’

melbourne brothers awarded payout after dad fernando paulino stabbed mother to death

An evil father who stabbed his wife to death in a frenzied knife attack in a garage has been ordered to pay their sons nearly $300,000 in damages.

Fernando Paulino murdered his ex-wife Teresa Mancuso, 46, by stabbing her at least 16 times at her elderly parents’ Reservoir home in Melbourne‘s north in July 2013.

Her sons Daniel and Luke, 27 and 30, were on Thursday awarded a combined $280,000 after suing their father in Victoria’s Supreme Court.

‘Fernando has shattered the bounds of trust that are inherent in a parent-child relationship, and this is further compounded by Fernando’s apparent lack of remorse,’ Justice James Elliott said.

Daniel and Luke have become known as the YiaYia Next Door brothers after they formed a special bond with their Greek next-door neighbour Nina – who would give them meals over the fence following their mother’s death. 

Paulino is serving a 30-year jail sentence after being convicted of murder – but is seeking for an appeal against the ruling in the High Court.

An inmate who was housed in the same wing as Paulino told Daily Mail Australia in 2018 he wanted his children to know their father was a ‘gutless coward’ who plans to ‘kill himself’ if he is not released and forced to rot in jail. 

Paulino killed out of jealousy, hatred and a determination to punish Ms Mancuso for moving on with life without him.

‘From that moment, Fernando has deprived his sons, Daniel and Luke, of a life with their mother, of the ability to share her 50th birthday with them, and of the chance for her to be there as they celebrate their respective milestones,’ Justice Elliott said.

With their father jailed, the young men took him to court. Each sought $350,000 for loss and suffering, including post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.

Justice Elliott said the figure was significantly more than compensation granted in similar cases. He ordered Daniel, now 30, receive $137,500 and 27-year-old Luke $142,500.

Ms Mancuso’s brother, Patrick, sought $100,000 but received $42,500. He was angry and frustrated because he believed the murder could have been prevented.

Before she died, Ms Mancuso expressed fears Fernando would ‘kill her one day’.

‘It is clear that Teresa was a much loved person, and that she had close and loving relationships with Daniel, Luke and Patrick, and with the rest of her immediate and extended family, and friends,’ Justice Elliott said.

‘No award of compensation will ever fill the deep sadness, hurt and trauma that will remain with not only Daniel, Luke and Patrick, but the rest of Ms Mancuso’s family and friends as well, for the rest of their lives.’ 

The bond between the brothers and their ‘Yiayia’ was forged after the murder.  

No one had lived in the property for years until the brothers decided to move into the house to honour their mum.

The garage has since been turned into a games room filled with their childhood toys.

Nina has since cooked meals for the brothers, including traditional Greek food, homemade bread, chicken and their favourite spinach pie, Spanakopita. 

Last year, the grandmother and her husband Petros discovered they would fly home to visit her family in Greece after Daniel and Luke surprised her with a travel voucher.

‘To see my sister and my brother. That’s a big, big deal for me,’ Nina told the men, who she refers to as ‘my grandkids’.

Nina’s sister had suffered a stroke and Flight Centre donated a $4,000 travel voucher for the grandmother to be reunited with her and her brother.

Daniel and Luke surprised Nina with the voucher and celebrated by popping open a bottle of champagne.
