Welcome to Beauty Wire, where we round up the day's biggest beauty news.
YSL's new "Tie & Dye" line of nail polish topcoats is majorly upping the ante in the texture department. Each bottle contains multiple finishes, including glitter and gloss, meaning that you can have different finishes on every finger or even every quadrant of every nail. But which '90s musician will appear in the campaign? [Beauty Counter]
Also on the new nail polish front, Deborah Lippmann has just released three polishes inspired by ice cream. Unsurprisingly, they have creme bases, and, also unsurprisingly, they are making us really hungry. [Refinery29]
Jourdan Dunn says that a white makeup artist once didn't want to work on her face because she didn't feel "comfortable." Dunn ended up doing her own makeup and said, "If you're a makeup artist you should be able to do any type of makeup. It's just skin. You need to know your stuff." [Fashionista]
The new website Beautycounter is taking and updating the Avon model: instead of opening an e-shop, they're inviting customers to become sales reps and sell the products (which are all green and nontoxic) to their friends and family members. [Well + Good NYC]
Kirna Zabête owners/founders Beth Buccini and Sarah Easley share what they keep in their respective makeup bags: NARS lipsticks, Clé de Peau concealer, and Soap & Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker lip gloss. [Styleite]
Charlotte Olympia has a new line of clutches that look like perfume bottles. They're adorbs and pair well with sky-high CO heels, but none of them smell like Chanel No 5 (yet). [SheFinds]
