Balenciaga Launches Fragrances; Press-On Eye Shadows Proliferate

By

FRAGRANCE
• Balenciaga is relaunching a series of fragrances under Coty to stretch the brand to new audiences. Yes, stretch it to us. We want. [Cosmetic News]

• Tous is launching Tous in Heaven, a fragrance targeted to teens with purple and black packaging meant to project a more "rebellious image." Anything's more rebellious than their usual teddy-bear logo. [Cosmetic News]

MAKEUP
• L'Oréal is sponsoring a law and business ethics degree at the University of Cergy-Pontoise in France. We wonder if they're giving out scholarships for free products. [WWD]

• Avon is making a cheaper version of press-on eye shadow. Since when did press-on makeup get big enough to get knocked off? [Kiss and Makeup]

SKIN
• Plastic surgeon Christine Rodgers launched a new skin-care brand called En Pointe Skin Solutions. It's being billed as the first line by a female plastic surgeon. The packaging has ballerinas on it, and it's bright pink. Feminist solutions, people. [WWD]
