FRAGRANCE
• The FiFi Awards, the Oscars of the fragrance industry, were doled out last night at the Park Avenue Armory. Coty Inc. was this year's big winner. Their scents for Victoria and David Beckham, Intimately Beckham, won Fragrance of the Year for popular appeal in both the women's and men's category (go figure). Marc Jacobs’s Daisy won two awards in the Women’s Luxe and Best Packaging categories. [WWD]

MAKEUP
• Artemis makes an eyelash curler that heats up like a curling iron. Does this scare yet oddly excite anyone else? [Beauty Snob]

• Sheer lip glosses makes lips more vulnerable to skin cancer because they increase light penetration to the lips. So make sure your kisser gets just as much SPF as your skin. [Kiss and Makeup]

• M.A.C is releasing a special limited-edition bluish lip color in California called California Dreamin’. Someone needs to put this on eBay, stat. [Specktra Beauty News]

HAIR
• Nick Arrojo, the What Not to Wear hairstylist of the Arrojo Studio salon, will release a book called Great Hair this fall. Sounds creative. [Teen Vogue]

NAILS
• China Glaze just released a new eight-piece set of hologram neon nail colors called INK inspired by tattoos. The $25 set comes with nail decals. We thought those were for children. [Makeup and Beauty Blog]

SKIN
• British men spend less than $5 a year on skin-care products. One bottle of our drugstore moisturizer costs more than that. [Bella Sugar]
