• Chanel got a new 270-square-foot space in Bergdorf Goodman for its new makeup counter, which includes a makeup “play station.” Um, Sephora? Are you watching your back? [WWD]

• The FDA is considering passing legislation that would change the voluntary system for inspecting imported cosmetics to a mandatory system. Because, you know, when things are “voluntary,” people volunteer not to do them. And the long arm of the law isn’t having it anymore. [Cosmetics News]

• Laura DeLuisa LaRocca, founder and president of Rocca Skincare, is launching the Cellular Gold Complex collection in July, which will feature real gold as an ingredient. She says gold stimulates cell regeneration and aids anti-aging. At $95 to $175, it’s cheaper than Botox. [WWD]

• Tattoos need sun protection, too! Protect yours with Tattoo Goo (just $7) so they don’t fade or look weird. [Bella Sugar]

• A London salon features a new blow-dry treatment that straightens hair for an alleged three months. Gisele swears by it. [Daily Mail]

DSquared2 will launch She Wood for women this September, a follow-up to He Wood for men. It’s designed for “cool girls who wear men’s scents.” So we guess that means you don’t have to steal your boyfriend’s cologne anymore. [Now Smell This]
