• Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann, the face of Lancôme, explained how to use compact powder to David Letterman on his show last night. Nice move by Lancôme’s marketing department, eh? [Chic Report/Fashion Week Daily]

• A look that’s popping up already for summer is dark-lined eyes, bronzed skin, and a fuchsia-magenta lip. Just in the past few weeks, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Keira Knightley, and Kate Moss have been spotted sporting the combo. [Kiss and Makeup]

• CVS plans to replace “ingredients of concern” in their in-house beauty products in the name of consumer safety. We’ll believe it when we see it. [Cosmetics and Toiletries]

• The Ulta Beauty Mosiac features 30 shades of eye shadow, ten glosses, and four shades of blush. Plus, brushes. That’s a lot of stuff for your face. And it’s only $5. So do your thing. [Outblush]

• This Works came out with an eight-piece travel skin-care set. It includes lip balm, cooling spritz, and moisturizer. Hey, someone has to think of these clever combinations so we don’t have to. [British Vogue]
