PLASTIC SURGERY
• The Senate Finance Committee considered adding a 10 percent surtax to elective cosmetic surgeries like Botox and liposuction to help pay for the overhaul of our nation's health-care system. But Committee Chairman Max Baucus said that the tax is unlikely to go into effect. [Daily Beauty Reporter/Allure]

HAIR
• Diane Kruger didn't hide her bobby pins yesterday at the premiere for Inglourious Basterds. Easy, cheap hair accessories can be quite glam. [Beauty Department/Glamour]

FRAGRANCE
• Cadillac — as in the car — is launching a fragrance this fall with notes of geranium, tarragon, cinnamon, and grapefruit. It will not resemble new-car smell. Boo. [Stylecaster]

Paul Smith is launching a new scent this September for men who are sure of themselves but are not pretentious. [WWD]

MAKEUP
• Two Twilight-inspired beauty lines, named Luna Twilight and Volturi Twilight, are hitting stores this September. That's over 70 new Twilight products. Be afraid. [Spoiled Pretty]
