I've been looking for a new brow pencil for a while. I used various powders and pencils that only gave satisfactory results. None of which, I was I was totally in love with.

Conceptualized by Tyler Confrey-Maloney, Stephen Gray, Ankesh Madan and Tasso Von Windheim, all engineering students at North Carolina State University, have created a nail polish to detect Rohypnol, Xanax, and GHB by changing color.

I recently read an upsetting article about budding model Ataui Deng. The niece of supermodel Alek Wek has been reported missing. She was last seen on the Lower East Side of New York City. She has not been seen for ten days. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
If you have any information that can possibly lead to Ataui's safe return, please email your tips to FindAtaui@gmail.com. She is Sudanese and stands 5 feet 11 inches tall.
Ataui was found alive in a New York hospital not long after reports started surfacing about her disappearance. A hospital worker actually called it in. No word on how she got there or why. Great to know she was found safe.

E-commerce is booming and retailers are thinking of ways to keep you coming back to their brick and mortar locations as opposed to their websites. In the beauty business, that's a challenge, especially if you can find your shade in store.
