• Strange Invisible Perfumes will release Musc Botanique in September, smelling like, yes, musk. Founder Alexandra Balahoutis was going for a subtle, animalistic quality. [WWD]

• Now you can fake your pedi with dry nail-polish appliqués. Companies like Incoco and Avon make stickers, so you don’t have to wait for your tootsies to dry. But you will need the patience to put stickers on your toenails. [Girls in the Beauty Department/Glamour]

Givenchy’s makeup products include Black Denim and Indigo Denim eye-powder and cream sets, as part of the Denim Fetiche Collection. So your face can look like blue jeans! [Chic Report/Fashion Week Daily]

• M.A.C’s got yet another new collection, called Colour Forms. The makeup is bright, as is the packaging. Glad to see the company expanding from the basic black boxes. [Temptalia]

• It’s National Pollinator Awareness Week, and Burt’s Bees is wasting no time getting involved. It’s donating 5 percent of every purchase to the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign and its Honeybee Health Improvement Project. Yes, these things really exist. [Teen Vogue]
