SKIN
• The number of people using skin-lightening creams has increased, and in response, the number of people who misuse the products has increased as well. The creams are dangerous because prescription ingredients are found in over-the-counter options, some of which are as cheap as $3.99. [NYT]

MAKEUP
• Ashley Olsen went for two dramatic beauty looks this weekend. At the Golden Globes, she kept her eyeliner heavy and her lips nude, while at the Art of Elysium's charity gala, she darkened her lips and her brows, which contrasted her lace Alexander McQueen dress. Which is better? [Nitrolicious]

• A new study has found that women who consider themselves good-looking are more likely to get angry easily. Women who found themselves attractive also had higher expectations of what they deserved. [BBC]

HAIR
• Mo'Nique lifted up her dress on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday and revealed her hairy legs. As in hair that's longer than stubble. [NYDN]

• Rihanna's hair was extra shaggy this weekend. She's bringing mop tops back. [Just Jared]
