There’s a lot happening in the world of beauty. Rather than try to keep up with it all, let us help. Here is what you need to know today.
1. MAC Cosmetics is launching a new Simpsons themed line that includes colors with names like “Lisa’s Spikes” and “Beehive Blue.” The line will be available for presale for one day only, Saturday, July 26th, during San Diego’s Comic-Con, and only at MAC Cosmetics Gaslamp store in San Diego. The Simpsons line will officially be available in stores on September 4th.
2. The EU is banning the use of oak moss in perfumes, Reuters reports. Oak moss is an all-natural ingredient frequently used to provide an earthy note while extending the life of a scent. The EU is concerned that it could lead to an allergic reaction in one to three percent of EU citizens. The ingredient is part of the formulas for best-selling perfumes Miss Dior and Chanel No.5, among others. Many perfumeries are turning to algae as a potential replacement with a similar scent.
3. The Sonic Systems Purifying Cleansing Brush, Clinique’s first-ever cleansing brush, is now available. It is designed to give skin a fresh from the spa glow at home. The brush is gentle enough for all skin types and is designed to clear away dirt, oil and debris from even the hardest to reach areas, leaving skin fresh and clear.
4. A Baltimore doctor, Dr. Monica Aggarwal of Mercy Medical Center, believes that diet drinks can lead to poor eating decisions. Many people believe drinking diet sodas and other calorie-free diet beverages makes up for poor nutrition elsewhere, leading to unhealthy eating, heart disease and other health problems. Dr. Aggarwal encourages her patients to drink water instead. For more, check out this report from Baltimore’s local news station.
5. For on-the-go hair removal, the no!no! Hair Micro offers a new, compact design ideal for last minute touchups. The hair removal system uses heat, not light, so it’s suitable for all hair colors and skin types and provides painless hair removal.
