Selena Gomez Will Sell You Shampoo

I've always thought Selena Gomez had Pantene commercial-worthy hair, and it looks like the folks there agree. She's just been named ambassador for the haircare brand, and will star in its "Strong is Beautiful" campaign, debuting August 2015. {People StyleWatch}

MAC Lipstick is Getting More Colourful

Giambattista Valli For MAC Lipsticks

The Giambattista Valli For MAC Lipsticks.

Mark July 9th in your calendar, because that's the day designer Giambattista Valli's mini MAC lipstick collab comes out, and God, it looks good. Gone is the black packaging, replaced by bright colours—both inside and out. Plus, there's a clear, high-shine gloss that turns the five lipsticks into 10. {Refinery 29}

Why hasn't she fired this makeup artist yet? (This isn't that powder's first time at the rodeo. Same thing happened in 2010.) Maybe Nicole's not such an Ice Queen after all?!? Nah. {Hollywood Life}

Get ready to see much more of this face, because L'Oréal Paris has a new international spokesperson: Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana. (Those Brazilians!!) She joins an already long list of brand peeps: Karlie Kloss, Barbara Palvin, Luma Grothe, Lara Stone, Natasha Poly, Bianca Balti, Liya Kebede, Doutzen Kroes and Soo-Joo Park. {Vogue}

Christy Turlington-Burns is Repping Biotherm

Christy Turlington Burns for Biotherm

Christy Turlington Burns will star in Biotherm Blue Therapy ads.

Ah, the supers! Christy still looks SO great, I'd for sure buy skincare from her. You? The 46-year-old has just been tapped by Biotherm to be the face of its Blue Therapy line, launching this fall. Good on them for not choosing some 20-year-old. {WWD}

Here's the Next Marc Jacobs Perfume

It's called Decadence, and the notes include Italian plum, iris, saffron, Bulgarian rose, jasmine sambac, orris, vetiver, and amber... but you won't be able to smell it until October. Notice the purse packaging, complete with chain strap! {Allure}

Rihanna is Selling Flash Tattoos

Just when you thought insta-tattoos were over... Rihanna has come out with a seven-piece set in collaboration with LA-based designer Jacquie Aich. The tats are a mix of Gothic and dainty, reminiscent of how you might stack your jewellery. And a second collection is already in the works. {Marie Claire}

These Devices Can Help Prevent Sunburn

Wearable UV sensors

Wearable UV sensors: the next frontier in sun protection?

Speaking of jewellery, you can wear one of these if you keep forgetting to re-apply sunscreen. The JUNE device becomes a bracelet or brooch, and contains UV sensors that monitor sun exposure throughout the day. Other options include the soon-to-be-launched Violet clip-on tracker, UV wristbands or the sunZapp app for your phone. {The New York Times}

This Model Lost Her Leg to Toxic Shock Syndrome 

Toxic shock syndrome

Lauren Wasser lost her leg after contracting toxic shock syndrome.

Here's a tragic story and compelling reason to switch to all-natural sanitary products—or skip tampons altogether. Lauren Wasser came down with toxic shock syndrome, which led to gangrene, which led to her having to get a leg amputated. She is suing Kotex. "Synthetic fibers, along with a tampon's absorbency, can form an ideal environment for staph bacteria to flourish." {Vice}

Adults are Drinking Human Breast Milk

Human breast milk

Milk does a body good, but... breast milk?

Move over, Paleo. The newest health craze is all about milk—breast milk—which a growing number of adults are buying online to consume. (Who knew?) But a new study has found that drinking raw or unpasteurized breast milk can put you at risk of bacterial-borne illnesses and infectious diseases. {Mashable}
