MAKEUP

• A Chicago judge ruled that the class-action lawsuit brought against LVMH regarding the use of lead in Dior Addict's Positive Red lipstick will not be thrown out and can go ahead as planned. [Cosmetic News]




• Christina Aguilera reapplied her lip gloss 30 times during a meal at the Ivy. Some weirdo actually stood there gawking and counted. [Dlisted via Jezebel]

SKIN
• Dylan's Candy Bar and Sephora teamed up to create a bath and body collection inspired by candy. And it sounds delicious! Especially the Candy Butter Cream ($22) and Birthday Cake Batter lip balm ($8). Too bad it won't be available until the holiday season. [WWD]

FRAGRANCE
• Yesterday Antonio Banderas announced he'll donate $1 for every gift set of Blue Seduction for Women sold during the holiday season to the Broadway Cares/Equity Fight AIDS charity. Is it just us or does that seem rather measly? [WWD]

• Coty Inc. announced that they're creating a fragrance with the image of opera star Renée Fleming. All of the proceeds from the scent (a predicted $500,000) will go to the Metropolitan Opera at New York's Lincoln Center. Yes, opera stars have fragrances now. Where's yours, hm? [WWD]

Giorgio Armani's new fragrance, Oranger Alhambra, launched today. It includes notes of lemon, bergamot, bitter orange, petitgrain, and rosemary, and costs just $115. Yes, that much to smell like … herbs. [Now Smell This]

HAIR
• Jason Pure, Natural & Organic is launching a new children's category, which will include soap, shampoo, bath gel, and toothpaste for little ones. And Upper East Side moms go wild! [WWD]
