Burt's Bees' New Brand; Butter London's Lips; Chanel's Brow Art

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

SKIN—Burt's Bees is growing their empire with a new brand called Güd. They're promoting the new products with this cute video, some scratch-and-sniff ads, and free samples. We hope the scents are less cheesy than their names, which include "Floral Cherrynova" and "Pearanormal Activity." [Güd's Facebook]

LIPS—Nail polish brand Butter London is venturing into the world of lip gloss with a line called Lippy. They've chosen five of their iconic polishes and made them into mouth-friendly versions. Colors include Trout Pout (bright pink), Primrose Hill Picnic (coral), and Yummy Mummy (sandy beige). Tough love if you actually live in London, though—the glosses are currently only available in the US. [Butter London]

EYES—Move over nail art, it's all about brow art. The Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week included work by Atelier Lesage, who made 40 sets of bejewelled brows at three hours of work a pair. The end result: pretty freaking cool, but not as well-branded as the Freja Beha Erichsen double-C tears. [Fashionista]
