From the beginning Chanel No. 5 has always been exclusive. It was first released in 1921 as a Christmas gift to Mlle.'s best customers and was limited to only 100 flacons. When these customers started coming back, asking for more, it was officially launched as "Chanel Nº 5" in 1922. Word is that this scent was the No. 5 bottle out of 10 samples presented to her, and that when asked how she would name it, she replied, "I always launch my collection on the 5th day of the 5th month, so the number 5 seems to bring me luck – therefore, I will name it Nº 5."
Why the shift now, though? Industry experts attribute the change to the ever-dwindling number of women who are relaxing their hair. The numbers are actually expected to decline another 23 percent by next year, which suggests more women are embracing their natural texture. Of course, there's always the money angle, too; ladies with ringlets have been underserved, and now the industry recognizes that its lopsided view was neglecting a lot of profitable heads of hair. Look for retailers like Target, Sephora, and HSN to unfurl their curls over the next few months.
Betsey also promises that "It ain't gonna be au natural, sweet, foodlike — like chocolate — [or] patchouli." And she declares that it will bring the menfolk a-running. "If I don't get compliments [on a fragrance], if guys don't like it, I throw it out the window," she says. If you're curious to see what this nonsweet honeytrap of a perfume smells like, it'll be out in Betsey's boutiques and online next month. What do you think? Do you like the idea of this retread, or do you think Betsey should have covered some new territory?
I also liked the new Cremesheen lipsticks. My only concern is that they move a lot, even when I put down copious layers of lip liner. The colors are too good to pass up, though. My suggestion: All Styled Up ($14) is very similar to Lady Gaga VivaGlam, but slightly brighter.
Summer Fridays just got sweeter. Elizabeth Arden is now celebrating the best time of the year by holding a beauty sale every Friday. Discounted products change weekly, shaving 30 percent or more from original prices. Look for occasional free shipping promotions, too.
Today's your chance to replenish your makeup staples, skin treatments, or try a new fragrance. But remember, this is just a seasonal bargain — and sale items and promotions change week to week — so be sure stop in on your way to the weekend.
Most of you prefer heavier eyebrows, but just like hairstyles, makeup shades, and clothing fashions, different shapes and textures of eyebrows go in and out of style over time. In the the '20s and '30s, it was all about thin, dramatic brows with lots of curves. In the '80s, it was all about a bigger-the-better attitude. And then there were the '90s, when brows were so thin, tweezers never got a break. So let's take a peek at some of the most memorable eyebrow styles over decades past. Which era stands out most for you?
