Welcome to Beauty Wire, where we round up the day's biggest beauty news.
What happens when your favorite lipstick disappears? Most of us would obsessively scour eBay, but Carolina Herrera just called up Bobbi Brown and asked her not to kill her favorite shade. Now, the "deep rosy plum" lipstick is not only off the endangered species list, it has been re-named Carolina Sheer Lip Color. It obviously pays to hail from one of America's most influential families. [InStyle]
Drybar's next phase of domination has just kicked off with a new line of at-home hair care products designed to lengthen the life of your blowout. The products—including a dry shampoo, a smoothing cream, and a heat protector/frizz fighter—have cutesy booze-inspired names like Hot Toddy, The Chaser, and 100 Proof. [Drybar]
Why go out and compete in a beauty pageant when you can do it from your house?
