MAKEUP


Sasha Pivovarova returns as the face of Armani Beauty for fall, as you see at left, with an emphasis on natural makeup. Hear that, Pussycat Dolls? [FWD]

• Remember the saga in which family-owned Clarins wanted to buy out minority shareholders but then got stopped by market regulators who wanted to ensure the deal wasn't corrupt? Well, allow your sleep cycles to return to normal because the buyout will go ahead as planned from August 6 to September 16. [Cosmetic News]

Dior released a new formula of its Diorshow Iconic Mascara with a curvy brush for more curl. Sephora starts carrying it this week (that is, if Tinsley Mortimer doesn't buy all of them before you get there). [Beauty and the Blog/Sephora]

SKIN
• A box of four Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Masks by Bliss costs $54 — especially expensive when they recommend you use one once a week. But if you don't want to look like a wreck on your way-too-hung-over days, these are great for instant glow. [Daily Beauty Reporter/Allure]

NAILS
• There are no reported cases of HIV or Hepatitis B or C transmitted from nail salons, so stop worrying. [Beauty Brains]

HAIR
• British Elle dabbled in dry shampoos to see if they actually work. And they do! Bumble and bumble's Hair Powder topped their list. We've used this stuff, and it's good for a lazy day when you don't feel like lathering up, but it's no substitute for a good ol' fashioned shampoo in the shower. [British Elle]
