Coty Gets OPI, Victoria Beckham Says Goodbye To Self-Tanner, And More…


After denying rumors of a buyout, OPI has indeed been bought by Coty, to the tune of about $1 billion. Following L’Oréal’s estimated $50 million deal with Essie earlier this year (not to mention a couple of high-profile designer collaborations for CND and Sally Hansen), we’d say the nail business is booming.

Emma Watson has promised she won’t be hawking perfume with her name on it anytime soon, but Nicki Minaj, for one, is ready to board the celebrity fragrance train. After the debut of her Pink Friday lipstick for MAC Cosmetics last week, the hip-hop heroine is reportedly hoping to add a signature scent (as well as films and a clothing line) to her budding empire.

You already know about Victoria Beckham’s body-hugging, bold-shouldered fashion preferences. Now Tatler has revealed her beauty secrets. The designer prefers hair conditioners from Frédéric Fekkai, Stila’s Lip Polish in Gleam, and nail polishes form Chanel. She also claims to be over her days of self-tanner abuse, a look she admits is “a bit footballer’s wife.” That bronzed glow now comes from the Southern California sun and a slathering of Nivea Body Lotion.

If you haven’t already heard (and subsequently gasped), Justin Bieber has cut his hair. The choppy new version of his signature combed-over fringe makes Biebs’ serious eyebrows the focal point of his face. Who knew those arches were lurking under there this whole time? [Gawker]
