• Makeup artist Oxana Sandoval won the Sephora and Make Up For Ever’s “Lash Pimpin’” contest by using colored feathers and teeny rhinestones, pictured here. They’re completely unwearable, but a work of art. [Beauty and the Blog/Sephora]

• Mixing politics with makeup, Stila created a lip color called Rock the Vote Red, available online now for $17 a tube. Twenty-five percent of proceeds will be donated to Rock the Vote. [Beauty in Real Life]

• Not all celebrity scents are created equal, according to Chandler Burr, the fragrance critic at the New York Times. With Love … Hilary Duff is actually comforting, enjoyable, and leaves you smiling, he writes. What an endorsement. [Moment/NYT]

Prada will launch a men’s Infusion scent this October, following the success of the Infusion d’Iris scent for women. This fragrance will be part of a bath line that includes aftershave, balm, and deodorant. [Cosmetic News]
