The “beauty from the inside” craze that has seen a spike in sales of beauty-enhancing supplements and nutritional drinks may just be a good marketing ploy aimed at the upwardly mobile. “People with disposable income to spend on vitamins, who are interested in their health and well-being, these are the people who need them the least,” says Marion Nestle, a professor of nutrition, food studies, and public health at New York University, adding that it is very difficult to gauge improved dermatological health in people who already practice good skin habits.

Can Swiss apple stem cells make the transition from luxury and mass skincare products to makeup? Yes, in fact they can. The ingredient apparently stimulates stem cell activity in eyelash follicles, causing faster, stronger hair growth, making it a perfect fit for—you guessed, it—mascara. [Independent]
Marios Schwab and Roksanda Ilincic may swear by its insta-glow capabilities on their runways, but St. Tropez’ fake tanning products came under attack yesterday for allegedly further supporting an unhealthy body image in the media. The controversy centers around ads starring newly named spokesperson Kelly Osbourne, who claims that its products make you appear not just browner, but slimmer. You can’t fault Osbourne too much, though; she just spent months at the Dancing With the Stars school of cosmetics. She’s not in her right mind. [Daily Mail]
The FiFis are just over a month away, and competition in the women’s Celebrity Fragrance of the Year category is heating up. Mariah Carey, Halle Berry, Avril Lavigne, and Faith Hill will all try to follow in the footsteps of Paris Hilton, who took home the prize last year. For those of you wondering, Beyoncé’s Heat won’t be in the running until next June, when it will no doubt emerge as the uncontested winner. Until then, our money’s on Halle. [Ace Showbiz]

Mariah Carey was in town yesterday to promote her new fragrance Forever at Macy’s in Herald Square, and while we’re always excited to see her (no one hits the high notes like Mimi), we felt a bit of longing for the days of old. Her perfect peachy-cheeked complexion, glossy lips, and super-straight blow-out made us nostalgic for the early nineties, when she kept her hair curly, her brows bushy, and frequently sported long-sleeved mock-turtleneck midriffs and high-waisted jeans. (Swoon.) Which Mariah incarnation are you partial to?
