Physicians Formula’s Profits Soar; Long Bob New ‘It’ Do

• Cheap drugstore cosmetics brand Physicians Formula’s profits jumped to $1.7 million from $102,000 at the same time last year. Damn. [WWD]

• Frédéric Fekkai stylist Adir Abergel is calling the “lob” (short for long bob) the hairstyle of the season. Anne Hathaway, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Eva Longoria are sporting it. [Beauty Counter/]

• Brandy and Estelle have the blues: Both wore peacock-blue shadows at recent public appearances. Apparently the new thing is to wear colored shadows that make a statement with otherwise subdued outfits. [Daily Beauty Reporter/Allure and BellaSugar]

• Citrus scents are out; classic, heady scents are in! Those include Pure Poison by Dior, Love by Ralph Lauren, Opium by Yves Saint Laurent, Strip by Agent Provocateur, Angel by Thierry Mugler, and Youth-Dew by Estée Lauder. Maybe they go with the economy or something. [LAT via Jezebel]

• In a lesson in obviousness for the day, Lucky editors remind us that it’s not nice to ask people if they’ve had work done. Thank you. [Beauty Department/Lucky]
