Happy Fourth! Hope you are having a great holiday weekend! In beauty news, Kat von D announced she is coming out with a Lolita-inspired version of her popular Shade + Light eyeshadow palette, a study in the Annals of Internal Medicine reports an increase in complaints about beauty product side effects, and Lure Hsu has the Internet talking about how she looks half her age.
Kat von D’s most popular lipstick shade is called Lolita, a looks-good-on-everybody rosy taupe. She even came out with a combination eye shadow and blush in Lolita. Now she is developing a Lolita-inspired version of her bestselling Shade + Light Eye Contour palette. I can’t wait to see it! I wonder how it will compare to Urban Decay’s rose gold Naked 3 palette… (Allure)
As a journalist, I cover medicine and health, so this story was of particular interest to me. According to a new study, people are increasingly reporting adverse events related to beauty products to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The biggest culprits were hair care, skin care, and tattoos. The authors concluded that the FDA should have more jurisdiction over the beauty industry. Currently, the agency only requires a few products, such as acne treatments and sunscreen, to receive pre-market approval. Otherwise, beauty is basically a self regulated industry.

Taiwanese interior designer Lure Hsu is 41 years old, people. That is not a typo. 4-1. She doesn’t look a day over 22. And the Internet can’t stop talking. To quote When Harry Met Sally, “I’ll have what she’s having.” (Allure)
This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Check out the Q1 highlights here.
This week on the blog, I shared some pics I took in the skyline photography workshop and talked to two amazing dentists about keeping your teeth white this summer.
