“The Netflix Of Nail Polish” Has Arrived; Oprah: The Organic Beauty Line?; And More…


The nail industry is still booming. Need proof? Meet Lacquerous: the Netflix of nail polish. For $18 a month, the membership-only service will allow you to rent three different varnishes in over 70 different shades from a myriad of brands for 30 days. Then you just pop them into a box with a prepaid mailing label, send them off, and expect a new shipment a few days later. Also worth noting: In this beauty-centric adaptation of the mail-in movie model, the word “queue” has been replaced by the term “lust list.” [Time]

Demi Moore’s first fragrance foray with Helena Rubinstein circa 2009 is currently discontinued, but that hasn’t stopped the 50-year-old from giving it another go. The former Mrs. Kutcher has apparently just launched the ylang-ylang, jasmine sambac, and sandalwood eau, More by Demi, with Swedish cosmetics giant Oriflame. [The Scented Salamander]

Watch out, green beauty industry. Oprah Winfrey has apparently filed a few different applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to launch a series of organic goods under the name “Oprah’s Organics,” “Oprah’s Farm,” or “Oprah’s Harvest”—soaps, bath oils, and skincare and hair-care products included. [Forbes]

In the latest episode of “as the celebrity hair-color wheel turns,” Dakota Fanning made her first big red-carpet appearance with her newly dyed brunette locks, and Snooki has gone a shade of fire-engine red. Ah, the intrigue. [Just Jared and Us]

The Man Behind Oprah And Michelle’s Makeup Magic; The Hunger Games Gets Lacquered Up; And More…


What do Oprah Winfrey, Patti LaBelle, Michelle Obama and Chaka Khan have in common? They all swear by makeup artist Derrick Rutledge. “The First Lady comes first,” Oprah says. “When she doesn’t need him, I get second dibs.” [Washington Post]

China Glaze is getting an early jump on the mass hysteria that will surely set in when The Hunger Games book series comes to the big screen next year. The nail lacquer brand has announced a 12-piece lineup of polishes inspired by the dystopic saga. [Bella Sugar]

Kim Kardashian is having a bad month. On top of filing for divorce, she’s just been slapped with a false-advertising suit by Radiant, an at-home hair removal company, that is alleging that Kim has made outlandish—and untrue—claims about the superior efficacy of Tria, a rival at-home hair removal treatment. [TMZ]

Research that claims that attractive people are more likely to be happier, earn more money, and even have more success at getting a bank loan (with a lower interest rate!) is charted territory. But Beauty Pays, a new book by University of Texas at Austin professor Daniel S. Hamermesh, alleges that attractive employees are also more productive, leading to higher sales and potentially higher profits for the company they work for. It’s a vicious, really good-looking, cycle. [Daily Mail]

Lancôme Gets Emma Watson; Emma Stone Gets Curly; And More…


Lancôme is officially stacking its celebrity spokesperson deck. As if scoring Julia Roberts last year wasn’t a big enough coup, the French beauty giant has just announced that Emma Watson is joining Kate Winslet and Penélope Cruz as the newest face of the brand. [WWD]

In the newest issue of O magazine, Oprah dedicates a whole feature to her longtime hairstylist Andre Walker, who dishes about coiffing the talk show hostess-with-the-mostess for the last 25-plus years. Walker goes into detail about “the styles that weren’t so great” (read: the bigger eighties-era poufs) and his tips for keeping Winfrey’s hair TV camera-ready, including, “Condition. Condition. Condition. Whether you think you need it or not, use a conditioner every time you shampoo, and slather on a thick hair mask once a week.” [People StyleWatch]

Emma Stone was snapped with light, strawberry blond curls in L.A. this weekend—a far cry from the sleek platinum strands she sported front-row at Louis Vuitton last week. Yes, the color was for her new movie, The Help, but we’re hoping it will serve as a reminder of how good she looked as a ginger. [Just Jared]

Diet Pepsi debuted its new “skinny” can during NYFW to a considerable amount of criticism, so it should come as no surprise that its allegedly retouched ad campaign starring an equally slimmed-down Sofia Vergara is generating a similar clamor. [Daily Mail]

Bottega Veneta Taps Nine d’Urso; Rihanna Goes Big With Beauty In New “S&M” Video; And More…


Like mother, like daughter. Lagerfeld muse Inès de la Fressange’s daughter, Nine d’Urso, will be the new face of Bottega Veneta’s premiere fragrance due out this fall. [WWD]

Rihanna’s new video for her single “S&M” hit the Web hard today. Aside from a cameo by one of Prada’s striped stoles for Spring, we spotted five different hair looks, four different nail designs—including cherry red and zebra print—and three different lip colors, our favorite being bubblegum pink. And that was just on the first viewing! [Fader]

Emily Blunt has cashed in her dark chestnut locks in favor of a new light brown shade with blond highlights. Hey, it’s never too early to prep for the summer sun. [E!]

Oprah will announce on her show this afternoon that she and her staff are about to embark on a vegan diet challenge for one week! If you haven’t already set your Tivo, you know what to do. [Huff Po]

Andre Walker Has Got You Covered


Gray hairs can drive even the most rational women to maddening lengths—think tears, panic, and, of course, frenzied plucking. But before you take tweezers to scalp, consider this significantly less aggressive alternative: Hair Make-Up by Andre Walker. As Oprah Winfrey’s own hair guru, Walker’s new, eponymous collection of styling products debuted on HSN this month and includes these pocket-size color wands that magically cover up even the most stubborn gray strands. Available in black, dark brown, light brown, blonde, and red (a great match for copper hues), the hair concealer dries instantly, has a shiny finish that incorporates seamlessly into your
natural hair, and rinses out after one shampoo. Besides hiding grays, you can use the Make-Up along the roots to camouflage your natural color’s regrowth. Like Classic Sparkles Uggs, Centerville Pie Company’s Chicken Pie, and Le Creuset Cookware, the pens earned a highly coveted spot on Oprah’s “favorite things” list this year, and may be worth adding to yours in 2011.
