Earlier today, CNN reported the results of a test on 17 perfumes by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. The results are fairly terrifying, as many of the perfumes contained ingredients that caused “reactions such as asthma, wheezing, headaches and contact dermatitis when they are breathed in absorbed into the skin”. Sean Gray, senior analyst for the Environmental Working Group, conducted the study, insisting “consumers have a right to know what [they’re] putting on [their] bodies.”
The Kentucky Derby is only a few days away, and while we don’t have any idea what horses or jockies will be competing at the races, we do have something else to look forward to: the hats, the dresses, the hats… Did we mention how excited we are about those hats?

WWD reports that LR Health & Beauty Systems is teaming up with Bruce to create his own perfume, set to launch in July.
On April 1st, Brett Michaels announced that he was Pantene Pro V’s newest spokesperson. Not surprisingly, that was a joke. But what originally began as an April Fool’s prank has just become a reality for one, well, reality star.
Just a week ago, we expressed our skepticism about Charity Buzz’s auction for an internship at DKNY, allowing people to bid for the week-long position. Although we love that the proceeds will be donated to the Stephen Gaynor School, this system seems to be favoring the wealthy -– not necessarily the most qualified.
