This is how it unfolds: best friends Mia (Rose Byrne) and Mel (Tiffany Haddish) are living their best lives running their own cosmetics company they’ve built from the ground up. "We are two badass queens like those bitches who raised Wonder Woman. We've worked our asses off. We've opened up our own store. We're winning," Mia says. It’s all peaches and cream until Mel finally reveals that their company is $493,000 in debt. Fortunately for the entrepreneurial duo, a notorious titan of the cosmetics industry Claire Luna (Salma Hayek) comes around with a big buyout offer, proposing to invest $1.7 million into the company. Claire warns them that business and friendship don’t always work well together; will they survive the trial and tribulations of trying to keep their business afloat?

The movie is set to hit theaters and January 10, 2020, and we are beyond enthused. Check out the trailer, below:
