Amanda Seyfried is on the cover of Allure's naked issue, even though she doesn't get naked in it.

I'm always protected; it's not greasy. I mean, it's Clé de Peau. I'm the spokesperson; I'd be an idiot not to use it." [Allure]
British brand Boots No 7 is expanding the range of products they offer in the US to include a skin illuminator, matte foundation, eyelash serum, and "stay-perfect primer." You can get the goodies at most Target locations or on Boots' US website. [Boots]
