Quick post: vintage Valentine's Day compacts
Couture Monday: Chanel's pearly whites (and pinks)

Curator's Corner, 2/14/2016

CC logoLinks for the week.

- Some very exciting news!  If you've been reading my blog for a while you know what a huge fan I am of beauty writer Autumn Whitefield-Madrano and her fabulous blog The Beheld.  Well, guess what?! Her first book is now available for pre-orderFace Value: The Hidden Ways Beauty Shapes Women's Lives sounds truly awesome.  Be sure to check out her new website too. 

- The Glamourologist explains how an ancient Egyptian cosmetic spoon worked.

- In bizarre beauty this week: glitter tears, unicorn horn braids, undercut "tattoos", neck contouring and hand makeup. Truth be told, I think that last one seems one step away from Señor Wences.

- I don't collect perfume bottles, but these Guerlain ones are amazing (and retail for $11,000 each!)

- This Canadian thief went berserk on beauty products. Obviously he was planning on reselling them...or was he?

- Genius.

The random:

- On the local front, Baltimore may be the "most eccentric" city in the U.S. (I must point out, however, that the item about the "Ouija 7-11" is complete and utter garbage...there are so many things wrong with that write-up.  Just trust me.)

- Loved this profile of merfolk in the UK.

- Never trust a big butt and a smile: in '90s nostalgia, Justin Timberlake does a great cover of the 1990 hit "Poison."  Also, classic '90s radio show Loveline gets revisited and TV show Saved By the Bell is getting its own restaurant.

- Only a few more days!!

What was catching your eye this week, beauty-related or otherwise?
