Carine Roitfeld x MAC Debuts; Nail Art Lawsuits; Coco Rocha's Hairspray Confessions

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.

· Carine Roitfeld's long-awaited MAC line is here. The fashion editor rocks a slip, a smoky eye, and some serious bedhead in the preview video. According to the commenters on the video, she looks like a drug addict and a zombie. Now buy some eyeliner already! [Grazia]

· Remember the caviar mani? Ciate, the British polish brand who popularized the look, is going after beauty bloggers who use the term "caviar mani" without using their products, claiming that they have a copyright on the phrase. Isn't this how the Hunger Games started? [BuzzFeed]

· Coco Rocha and Derek Blasberg are sharing something called "hairspray confessions" for L'Oreal. Sadly, the confessions are more about hair products than about that time you tried to use it instead of Windex. [YouTube]

· Chanelholics, take note: the luxury brand is launching thirteen "Cremes Exclusifs," which are body creams scented like their most popular perfumes. Like other Chanel products, they will be really expensive. [Fashion Etc]

· Women attending the Republican National Convention this week in Tampa can have their hair and makeup touched up for free. In other news, Ann Romney matched her red nails and lipstick to her red suit last night. [Think Progress]

· Estee Lauder is known for their glam compacts, and their new set is inspired by the signs of the Zodiac. If you're a Capricorn but think the Aquarius one is way prettier, we won't tell on you. [InStyle]

· It turns out that your hair color determines a lot more about you than just what colors of eyeshadow look good on you. L'Oreal surveyed blondes, brunettes, and redheads and put the results into this cute infographic. [Birchbox]

· Ever wondered what famous works of art from Jackson Pollock and Damien Hirst would look like re-created out of beauty products? We didn't either, but the results are pretty damn cool. [Stylist]

· SoulCycle freaks enthusiasts now have one more way to show their pride: a bright yellow SoulCycle nail shade, produced with polish brand TenOverTen. It should pair nicely with your sweaty grimace and that manic gleam in your eye. [Refinery29]
