Paris Hilton Launches Eighth Fragrance; Lash Conditioner Hits the Market

By

FRAGRANCE
• Paris Hilton's next perfume is called Fairy Dust, and she will appear dressed as a fairy in all marketing materials. This is her eighth fragrance. Clearly, seven weren't enough. [Cosmetic News]

MAKEUP
• A 13-year-old boy in Ohio was banned from wearing black eyeliner, black fingernail polish, and black lipstick to school because administrators deemed it "distracting." His mother is fighting back, saying that it's gender discrimination because they would never force girls to take off their makeup. Go Mom. [Jezebel]

• Model Julia Stegner is the new face of Maybelline's Lash Stiletto mascara. So that's what our eyelashes are missing — stilettos. [WWD]

• Beauty companies thought they wouldn't get hit hard by economic conditions because people are more likely to buy a $20 lipstick than a $2,000 bag. But sales in the prestige beauty market are in steady decline. [WWD]

• Ironically, Skin Research Laboratories just came out with NeuLash, a $150 conditioner for your eyelashes. Yes, eyelash conditioner. We love our beauty products and all, but puh-lease. [WWD]
