The predetermined hit designed for the country star: a gold textured shade aptly named Carrie’d Away. [Twitter]
In other nail news, Byrdie reports that celebrities such as Rihanna and Adele are taking a break from short tips and opting for sophisticated talons. Even Daria Werbowy sported an extra-long ruby mani for Céline’s latest campaign.
It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind…and her nail color, but buying a bottle of nail polish remover will soon force you to flash that always-unflattering driver’s license photo at the drugstore. In an attempt to curb the production of methamphetamine, CVS implemented a new policy in New England (soon to roll out chain-wide) that requires a valid ID to purchase acetone-containing products.

Birthday girl Cara Delevingne hasn’t just impacted the fashion world in a major way, according to Vogue.co.UK an increase in online searches for the model’s name has affected Google’s algorithms. Search terms like “tweezers” and “eyebrow plucking” have significantly decreased in popularity since November 2012. The Internet giant and super’s arches have officially spoken: Bigger (and bushier) really is better.
Leighton Meester is gaining ground in the beauty spokesperson game. With an Herbal Essences contract already under her belt, the Gossip Girl star has just signed on as the face of Vera Wang’s forthcoming fragrance. Taylor Swift, watch out. [WWD]
Olay is also looking to woo the twentysomething set with a new round of TV ads to air during the CMAs next week, starring the company’s new face, Carrie Underwood. [WWD]
One celebrity who may not be getting a beauty deal anytime soon is Naomi Campbell. Her former agent is claiming that the supermodel lied under oath about backing out of a previous perfume deal before stiffing said agent on commissions. Three words: bad for business. [The Cut via NYP]
Lovers of fine fragrance, rejoice: Frédéric Malle has a new eau coming out next month that the famed perfumer himself has called his “best ever.” [T]
There’s another new beauty reality show in the works: Mistress Makeover doles out boob jobs and the like to the women implicated in B-list celebrities’ salacious affairs (yes, two of the show’s “stars” allegedly have ties to Tiger Woods). Gross. [BlackBook]
The BBC has been accused of ageism. Well, that’s what you get when you recommend that your TV presenters get Botox to stay one step ahead of HD cameras. [Daily Mail]
Last night’s 45th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards was an excuse for the C&W set to break out their Sunday best—and divulge some of their beauty secrets as well. Carrie Underwood swears by MoroccanOil for shiny hair; Reba McEntire relies on omega-3 oils for the same thing; and Jewel prefers to do her own hair and makeup on the road. Nicole Kidman was unfortunately less forthcoming about the red lip, fake lashes, and impressively smooth forehead she sported on the red carpet…[ET Online]
Double-eyelid surgery is apparently all the rage in Japan—and Jessica Simpson plans on getting the scoop on why Japanese women are so fond of the risky plastic surgery on tonight’s episode of her show The Price of Beauty. It should prove to be investigative journalism at its best. [Allure]
Perhaps Simpson can tackle the perplexities of face-lifts next, bearing in mind this interesting piece of new research: If you’ve ever wondered why all face-lift patients retain that same “wind-swept” look, it has less to do with scalpel precision and more to do with the fact that like skin, facial bones sag as we age, preventing you from ever really recapturing the face of your youth.
