Kerrie Hess for Etude House and Lancôme
Happy National Lipstick Day!

Curator's Corner, 7/26/2015

CC logoLinks for the week.

- Jezebel covers the current state of animal testing in cosmetics.

 - Get silky smooth tresses with the new hair condom!

- Contouring has clearly jumped the shark

- Major beauty crime alert. Glad she got caught.

- Beautiful with Brains shares some very old recipes for literal face paint, while History Today provides some perfume recipes from the early 17th century.

- Speaking of scent, do you let anyone else know what perfume you wear?  I think it's weird when a woman won't share the name of her preferred fragrance.

- So excited that we Americans can now buy Kiko online!  I will be stocking up on the Vibrant Eye Pencils...seriously the best pencil liner I've tried.

The random:

- More accolades for and history of Clueless, plus some little-known facts about another '90s classic, There's Something About Mary.

- These two new exhibitions sound great to me - one is on contemporary toy design (we own some of these!) and the other is a history of internet cats

- The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne will be debuting an art installation right here in Baltimore!

Finally, a blog note: I will be having some quality mother-daughter time at the Jersey Shore later this week so will not be posting much...I should be resuming at some point after I return, but, as you know, I can never guarantee consistency.

Do you have any fun summer travel plans?
