CC logoSome very exciting things this week!

- First, I'm deliriously happy with the news that Uglydoll will be unveiling a beauty line!  How crazy is that?  Fortunately since I employ so many Uglydolls here at the Museum they are very experienced with beauty products.   I wonder, actually, if the little scamps were the ones who came up with the idea to have a beauty line.  :)

- Other amazing news:  Remember last year when I declared a beauty emergency upon discovering my favorite perfume was discontinued and launched a worldwide search for the last few remaining bottles?  Well, L'Artisan must have heard my pleas because they are re-releasing it!!  Just for a limited time though, so I'm stocking up.

- Chanel is selling mascara via vending machine

- This Jezebel article about the lack of BB creams for darker skin tones is an important reminder for the beauty industry.  In this day and age there's no excuse for companies not to offer shades for non-white skin tones.  However, this article about a woman suing Lancome for their Teint Idole Ultra not lasting a full day is a ridiculous beauty complaint.  Yeah, it may be false advertising but would you really believe any foundation would stay on your skin for 24 hours without budging, especially if you slept in it? 

The random:

- Almost died laughing at this Beyonce/art history mashup Tumblr (via Cave to Canvas).

- Check out this archive of women in punk.  Very inspiring!

- Speaking of which, online retailer Moda Operandi has introduced a punk-inspired capsule collection celebrating the Met's "Chaos to Couture" exhibition (which I'm going to see in the next 2 weeks!) 

- I liked this brief article on Bart Simpson getting in touch with his feminine side.

- As much as I love lattes, I don't think I could drink these - the intricate foam decorations are too cool to mess up!

- In other culinary news, the L.A. Times has an article on the history of sriacha sauce
