• A couple of years back, the waiting list to see A-list plastic surgeons was two years, but now it’s down to three months. Why? People prefer mini-procedures like Botox to invasive face-lifts. [NYT]

• The Kate Moss Velvet Hour fragrance will launch in September with the tagline “embrace the night,” chosen by Moss because she loves nightlife. Sometimes the jokes write themselves. [WWD]

• Allure Homme Sport by Chanel packs a generic citrus-and-spice scent into a metallic package. [Moment/NYT]

• Estée Lauder Cosmetics filed a suit against Brooklyn-based Preferred Fragrance for trademark infringement, false advertising, and unfair competition. See, PF made products like Impression of Happy by Clinique and Impression of Beautiful by Estée Lauder. [Cosmetics Design]

• Mike Albo on Spiff, a new grooming salon for men: “Along the wall is a mirror with plasma screens embedded in it, so if you are an obnoxious new-media type, you can watch ‘Mad Money,’ check your e-mail, and get a shave while selling your Website to Rupert Murdoch.” [NYT]

• Men’s body-spray company Axe loves to play on sexual innuendo (as you’ve no doubt seen in the commercials), so it’s no surprise their new man loofah called a Detailer Shower Tool is rather phallic. [Moment/NYT]

• The lip hue of the summer is orange, be it shimmery or glossy, in a pencil or out of a tube. Try the Shiseido Automatic Lip Crayon in LC5 Orange that complements both pale and darker skin. [Beauty Addict]

• Yesterday would’ve been Shu Uemura’s 80th birthday, so makeup artists celebrated by wearing his signature big lashes with rhinestones and sequins. [Bit by the Beauty Bug]

• BareMinerals just launched Little Sun bronzer, which comes with what looks like the perfect bronzer brush. [British Vogue]

• Hate nail-polish fumes? Anna Sui’s shades ($13 a bottle) smell like flowers. [Bella Sugar]
