MAKEUP
• Oprah really didn't want to do a show about her favorite things for summer, but she eventually decided it was a good idea. So she had Gayle King on to help her unveil her makeup picks, which included CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara, OPI Nic Stick’s Paint & Go Nail Lacquer, everything in the Yves Saint Laurent line, Cle de Peau lipstick, and the NARS Kabuki Botan Brush. We know you don't like to buy cosmetics unless Oprah and Gayle approve. [Spoiled Pretty]

• Cle de Peau's latest eye-shadow compact, Ocean Breeze, includes two teals, a navy blue, and a light pink. They're quite translucent so you can wear them without looking like you walked out of the eighties with bright-blue eye shadow. [Daily Beauty Reporter/Allure]

SKIN
• French company Patyka will open its first store in New York this summer. It's known for their organic products and they’re rolling out makeup. Who doesn't want a green face these days? [Cosmetics News]

HAIR
• You know how you when you pull out hair bands strands of hair come with it? That’s where Knotheads comes in: These customizable hair bands replace barrettes, clips, and bands so they don’t rip out hair as long as you pull them out away from your face. [15 Minute Beauty Fanatic]

NAILS
• OPI has some competition on the way: Ciaté, a London-based nail-care brand, is coming to the United States. They call nail bars “spa pods,” which sounds rather enticing. [WWD]
