Because there seems to be nothing she can't do, Rihanna turned the MAC web store into a hopeless place for customers yesterday, after selling out her new retro matte red MAC lipstick RiRi Woo in only three hours. The singer celebrated the success, tweeting updates such as, "Straight like dat!! #RiRiWoo," and, "Red lipstick all on da paper!!! #RiRiWoo #SOLDOUT #3HOURS #lookatyou #nowlookatus." The collaboration hits store shelves today and returns online in June. [MTV]
· Set to run this fall, Kristen Stewart's second campaign for Balenciaga's Florabotanica fragrance is officially on the books. This counters rumors that she was on the outs with the fashion house's Creative Director Alexander Wang—but since the fragrance license has been held by Coty since 2008, chances are Alex has better things to worry about anyway.

· Katy Perry has released an image of her third fragrance via Twitter, and, well, it's something alright. The red and gold scepter-like bottle follows the feline theme of her past scents—Meow and Purr, respectively—with the singer's Kitty Purry character perched on top. [The Cut]
· Josie Maran has released an argan oil-based Self-Tanning Body Wash on QVC. Supposedly the natural DHA bronzing ingredient will tint skin and then rinse away without ruining your towels like chemical tanners. [Refinery29]
· Benefit has announced a collaboration with London designer Matthew Williamson called "The Rich is Back!" inspired in equal parts by Williamson's iconic animal prints and, we can only hope, Elton John. The collection will include a four palette eye shadow, mascara, blush, and lipgloss and will be available May 23. [Elle]—Alyssa Carroll
