Lupita Nyong'o's Latest Colored Contacts Are Freaking Us Out


She is having a little too much fun with her new go-to beauty look

Last week, Lupita Nyong'o proved that she's one of the very few people who can pull off red contacts. Now, the actress is venturing into other colors of the rainbow—and freaking us all out in the process.

The Us actress appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night while donning a pair of golden yellow contacts, which aren't nearly as subtle as her first pair. These stand out against her dark pupils and were a harsh contrast to her pink jumpsuit. In other words, they were creepy.

"Talking to Lupita was always engrossing because you have beautiful eyes, but they're particularly arresting tonight," Colbert says while introducing the star. He goes on to admit, "It's a little scary." Nyong'o shares that she's "going for the darkest things in life right now" before laughing at Colbert's trepidation.

We're glad at least she's enjoying this. Watch the clip below to see the golden eyes in action.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
