• In news that goes against every beauty rule we ever learned about makeup, hygiene, and bacteria: Tarte Cosmetics came out with a 4-Day Stay Lash Stain that’s supposed to last for four days. As long as it doesn't make lashes fall out, we're down. [Makeup Moxie]

• Britain’s Office of Fair Trading is accusing Unilever, Procter & Gamble, and Reckitt Benckiser of allegedly “price-fixing” between suppliers there and retailers in America. Way to kick us when our economy's down. [WWD]

• Matte shadows may not be as bright and bold as shimmer shadows, but just because they don’t sparkle, doesn’t mean you shouldn't wear them. The Biscotti-Toast combo from the Laura Geller Baked Collection for darker skin tones gives a look that’s polished and professional. [Hooked on Beauty]

SKIN
• The Dr. Weil’s for Origins line features a Plantidote Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion. Testers say it works as a light day lotion, so it’s ideal for steamy summers. [All About The Pretty]

• Mastihashop opened on Orchard Street in the Lower East Side, carrying only products that contain Mastiha, a natural anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory resin found in sap. They've got toothpaste, hair products, and nail strengtheners. Intriguing. [Cool Hunting]
