When Marc Jacobs launched Dot, the third fragrance in his perfume arsenal that already included Daisy and Lola, bottle buffs were likely beside themselves. “I approach [them] as [objects],” Jacobs said of his fragrance flacons, which reliably included 3-D embellishments and bold color statements. Explaining that he was “absolutely insistent” that Dot feature red and black polka dots, as well as abstract butterflies, Jacobs was just as quick to point out that he is plenty aware that good looks will only get you so far. “The story’s not going to sell it to [the consumer],” he admitted. It sure does help, though, which is presumably why the designer has revisited the same packaging idea for his new summer spin-off called Honey. A brighter alternative to Dot, the scent features a yellow cap on top of a clear glass orb, both of which are adorned with white spots, as well as Jacobs’ beloved butterflies, which take on a clear transparent golden hue this time around that is accessorized with black stripes. The undeniably adorable exterior might reel you in, but it’s the light and fresh pear, mandarin, peach nectar, honeysuckle, actual honey, and golden vanilla notes contained inside that will likely keep you coming back for more.

Katy Perry is ready to pursue a more “age-appropriate” beauty mantra, she says in a new behind-the-scenes video for her cover turn on Vogue‘s July issue, which looks like it will mean a more refined approach to eye makeup. “My brows and my eyes are, I think, what frame my whole face. I have all right lips and all right cheekbones, but they’re no show-offs.” [Us]
When Marc Jacobs’ new beauty venture arrives at Sephora stores in August, it will do so with a bang, not a whimper. The designer was actively involved in the creation of all 122 products in his debut cosmetics venture—from the naming (there is an extra-black mascara Jacobs called Blacquer and a pink blush, inspired by one of his tattoos, called Shameless) to the actual testing. “I’ve been using the Brow Tamer,” Jacobs admits.

Just as we were getting ready to lament the lack of punk piercings on last night’s red carpet, save for the bevy of jewel-encrusted ear cuffs that made the rounds, we took a closer look at Jessica Biel, only to discover that Mrs. Justin Timberlake had slipped on a septum ring for the occasion. Well played. [Daily Mail]

Throwback Thursdays is a new feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Yfke Sturm
The Moment: Shorn Locks
The Motivation: While making the cut is nothing new (see Audrey Hepburn, Mia Farrow, Twiggy, etc.), it has quickly gained popularity in the past few months. From Karlie Kloss’ Fall bob and Edie Campbell’s black shag that inspired a runway’s worth of imitations at Marc Jacobs, to Ulyana Sergeenko’s Dior Couture homage pixie, we haven’t been hurting for chop-shop inspiration. But this 1999 Paris Vogue snap of model Yfke Sturm still jumped out at us. Something about the nineties-era Dutch stunner’s micro-fringe and razor-trimmed ends paired with her icy blond color and pastel lilac eye shadow is exciting in a whole new, old way. Save it in the binder of tearsheets you plan on taking with you to your stylist in the coming months.
