MAKEUP—Russian supermodel Natasha Poly is the latest face added to the roster at L'Oreal Paris. She joins Doutzen Kroes, Barbara Palvin, and Gwen Stefani as models for the brand. "Before becoming a model, I dreamed of being a professional makeup artist," Poly said. "Color Riche lipstick and Elnett hairspray are iconic products for me, and I’m so excited to be representing them." Well, that's one good way to distract people from that whole bar brawl with your husband and the Greek shipping heir. [WWD]

SKIN—If you're in Montreal or Toronto between now and mid-March, you can go to a "Nivea Haus." The Swiss skincare brand is hosting pop-up shops where you can do fun stuff like get a hand massage, have your picture put on the side of a Nivea product, or see a printout of what your skin might look like when you're 70. Wait, only two of those things are fun... [BeautyGeeks]

FRAGRANCE—Private Practice star Kate Walsh is trying to become a perfume mogul. She launched her first one, Boyfriend, in 2010, and now she's introducing a followup called Billionaire Boyfriend. The accompanying commercial has Walsh wearing a sparkly silver band around her head, though anyone who has an actual billionaire boyfriend knows you should be able to afford real diamonds.
