After months of speculation, Lady Gaga has finally announced the upcoming launch of her beauty brand.

Social media accounts for Haus Laboratories announced on Tuesday that it will launch for pre-order on July 15.

According to Business of Fashion, the company will become the first major beauty brand sold exclusively on Amazon, where its lip gloss will retail for $16, and makeup kits will sell for $49.

Lady Gaga also took to her personal social media accounts, and shared a heartfelt message about her company.

Lady Gaga discussed the creation of her makeup brand on Instagram and Twitter

In social media posts shared on Tuesday, Lady Gaga said she “never felt beautiful” when she was younger, and “struggled to find a sense of both inner and outer beauty.” However, she eventually “discovered the power of makeup.”

“I remember watching my mother put her makeup on every morning, basking in the glow of her power to put on her bravest face as the hard working woman she was,” Gaga wrote on Instagram. “I then began to experiment with makeup as a way to make my dreams of being as strong as my mother become true.”

“It was then that I invented Lady Gaga. I found the superhero within me by looking in the mirror and seeing who I wanted to be,” she wrote. “Sometimes beauty doesn’t come naturally from within. But I’m so grateful that makeup inspired a bravery in me I didn’t know I had.”

“I’ve come to accept that I discovered my beauty by having the ability to invent myself and transform,” she continued. “They said I was just weird, but really, I was just Born This Way.”

Lady Gaga’s brand was announced through a promotional video on Tuesday. The minute-long clip is narrated by Lady Gaga, and features her and other models seemingly wearing makeup from the brand.

“The last thing the world needs is another beauty brand, but that’s too bad,” Lady Gaga said in the video.

“They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but at Haus Laboratories, we say beauty is how you see yourself,” she continued.

“Your glam, your expression, your artistry,” Lady Gaga said. “We want you to love yourself. Our house, your rules.”

Representatives for Lady Gaga did not immediately reply to INSIDER’s request for comment.

Immersive branded experiences in YouTube and display ads

Immersive branded experiences in YouTube and display ads

As a three-dimensional, visual medium, augmented reality (AR) is a powerful tool for brands looking to tell richer, more engaging stories about their products to consumers. Recently, we brought AR to Google products like Search, and made updates to our developer platform, ARCore, to help creators build more immersive experiences. Starting this week, we’re also bringing AR to YouTube and interactive 3D assets to display ads.

Helping YouTube beauty fans pick their next lipstick

Many consumers look to YouTube creators for help when deciding on new products to purchase. And brands have long been teaming up with creators to connect with audiences. Now, brands and creators can make that experience even more personalized and useful for viewers in AR.

Today, we’re introducing AR Beauty Try-On, which lets viewers virtually try on makeup while following along with YouTube creators to get tips, product reviews, and more. Thanks to machine learning and AR technology, it offers realistic, virtual product samples that work on a full range of skin tones. Currently in alpha, AR Beauty Try-On is available through FameBit by YouTube, Google’s in-house branded content platform.

M·A·C Cosmetics is the first brand to partner with FameBit to launch an AR Beauty Try-On campaign. Using this new format, brands like M·A·C will be able to tap into YouTube’s vibrant creator community, deploy influencer campaigns to YouTube’s 2 billion monthly active users, and measure their results in real time.

To help brands more easily edit, configure and publish high-quality, realistic models to use in Swirl display ads, we’re introducing a new editor on Poly, Google’s 3D platform. It provides more editorial control over 3D objects, including new ways to change animation settings, customize backgrounds, and add realistic reflections.

These new tools will be available to brands and advertisers this summer. We think they’ll help brands and advertisers make content more engaging, educational, and ultimately effective in driving purchase decisions. If you’re interested, check out our getting started guide for tips. We look forward to seeing you bring your products to life!
