Happy hydrangeas from Shu (and some traveling penguins)

Curator's Corner, 4/24/2016

CC logoLinks for the week.

- Like moths to a flame, beauty addicts are predictably going crazy over this rainbow highlighter.  I must admit it does look really fun!  But it's only a matter of time before a major beauty brand copies it - if I were that Etsy seller I'd patent/trademark my creation forthwith.

- Things I'm dubious about this week include glitter stretch marks and anti-aging gin.  No amount of sparkle will make my stripes appealing, and I doubt the collagen in the gin will do anything to counteract the notoriously un-beautifying effects of alcohol.

- Speaking of dubious beauty, for once and for all:  smearing any sort of placenta on your face does not have any proven benefits for your skin.

- Well, this is terrifying.  For any beauty procedure, always make sure your esthetician is qualified!

- I'm throwing some confetti Essie's way in honor of their 1,000th nail polish shade.

- Lip fillers are quickly becoming the fastest-growing cosmetic procedure

- Loved this piece on Louis Vuitton's kabuki cosmetics case.

- Some rather sad news this week:  the world lost yet another gloriously eccentric, incredibly talented musician who could also rock some amazing makeup looks.  Goodnight, sweet Prince. :(

The random:

- In museum news, this new app sounds so cool!  Meanwhile, this guy uses a face swapping app in quite a novel and hilarious way.  Also, a temporary Snoopy Museum has opened in Tokyo.

- In '90s nostalgia, New Kids on the Block and Paula Abdul are playing a show in August, along with Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees.

- Excited for Documentary Now to return.

- A bed fit for a mermaid princess!

What's new with you?
