Tata Harper, via Oprah.com
Let the record show that organic-skincare fanatic and Goop fave Tata Harper is anti peel treatments, FYI. She says they "can really affect the strength and resilience of the skin when you use them on a regular basis." Her alternative? "A good anti-aging regimen that keeps skin thicker, plumper, and more resistant, to combat age." Just imagine how she feels about Botox. [HuffingtonPost]
· Net-a-Porter's much-anticipated new beauty vertical launched yesterday with Oscar de la Renta nail lacquer and an exclusive partnership with Miranda Kerr's Kora Organics. And at $22 per ODLR polish bottle, now you can finally afford to shop there. [Net-a-Porter]
· Matthew Williamson's "The Rich is Back" Benefit collaboration hit Sephora stores today, and it's an absolute explosion of disco colors and Williamson's signature kaleidoscope prints. Stuffed with four eyeshadows, plus mini cheekpowder, lip gloss, and "They're Real" mascara, Williamson said the palette's name stems from the idea of "a hot bitch wearing amazing clothes and bold makeup and flaunting the fact that she's a powerful, sexy woman."

· Essie summer nail polish line-up is apparently inspired by "breezy chiffon cover-ups". The set includes a range of green, coral, purple, and blue shades, and will be available in June. [Racked Inbox]
· Speaking of summer, Clarins has released a candy-colored, limited-edition collection of Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms. The collection is supposed to be good for hydration and includes a pink crystal rose, coral mandarin, garnet berry, and winey gold plum color. It will probably go pretty quickly based on last year's high-demands. [Style] —Alyssa Carroll
