FRAGRANCE


• A Coty, Inc. exec says snowballing celebrity scents all started with the launch of Glow by J.Lo in 2002, which sold $78 million before 2003. Now celebrities (Avril Lavigne, Queen Latifah, Patrick Dempsey, Mariah Carey...) see fragrances as a way to solidify a strong career as more and more people buy their scents to smell like them.

• Zirh, a men’s grooming brand, will launch a woody men’s scent this September called Ikon. The ads will feature model David Gandy. [WWD]

MAKEUP
• Celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose created Michelle Trachtenberg’s look for Gossip Girl, and suggests using Clarins Joli Rouge in Apricot Sugar for those orange-tinted lips. [Beauty Snob]

• Benefit’s “Just in Case” holds three mini-tubes of their biggest sellers, including BeneTint for lips and cheeks, California Kissin’ for white teeth, and Eyecon for dark undereye circles. [British Vogue]

HAIR
• Big hair is back, according to celebrity stylist Ted Gibson. But just because Angelina Jolie rocks it, doesn’t mean it’s a full-blown trend. [LAT via Jezebel]

• Stuck-Up hairspray will keep locks in place, and let you comb through. [15 Minute Beauty Fanatic]

SKIN
• Tom Ford’s Black Orchid Body Cleansing Oil and Finishing Spray smells really good. As in, this blogger sprayed it on and was immediately showered with compliments over how good she smelled. [Kiss and Makeup]

• The C’watre line's key ingredient is modified sea water. The Kanreki Wash is a light rinse that can be used like a toner to smooth the top layer of skin. [A Girl’s Gotta Spa]
