    Perfume Could Soon Be Used To Help Solve Sexual Assault Cases

    It’s this attribute which means that perfume could also be used as ‘trace evidence’ along with these other materials. Scientists wrote in the journal Science and Justice that analysing fragrances could be particularly useful in cases where a crime has involved close physical contact, such as a sexual assault. “We’ve shown that first, perfume does transfer, and second, we can identify when that transfer has happened,” said director of the UCL Centre for the Forensic Sciences Dr Ruth Morgan.

You can directly alter their state of mind and body through this scent.

    8 beauty hacks to try today

    If you can’t get your eyeliner wing to look right (doesn’t it always comes out a bit too low or too high?) try applying it after your mascara. First, curl your upper lashes and apply a coat of mascara before tackling your eyeliner. The warmth helps the lash to hold the curl a lot better and when paired with a good lash-curling mascara the lashes will stay curled all day long!

    EXCLUSIVE: Estée Lauder Holiday Compacts Straight from the Archives

    Every year, Estée Lauder creates a collection of limited edition pressed powder compacts and solid perfume compacts just in time for the holidays. You may have even received one or given one as a gift. But there’s a strong history behind these chic and classic compacts. Dating back potentially as far as 1956, more than 1,600 unique compacts have been created and thousands have been sold worldwide. For 2015, Estée Lauder returned to the glamorous gold themes of several vintage designs including pearls, shooting stars, and a golden bow. There’s also a Year of the Monkey compact celebrating Chinese New Year, the latest in a long line of personalized designs, from zodiac signs to birthstones. Recently, burlesque star Dita Von Teese told us about her obsession with the highly collectable compacts. “I love to buy vintage Estee Lauder holiday compacts — you can still buy the refills,” Von Teese told Yahoo Beauty. “You can find them on eBay, at flea markets, and vintage shops. My favorite is the Shimmering Web — it’s like a spider web all covered in Swarovski crystals it’s got a little spider on it!”For the first time ever, Estée Lauder opened its archives to Yahoo Beauty and allowed us to photograph our favorite compacts through the decades. If you fall in love with these archive pieces (we sure did — they’re like miniature works of art) you can find several of them on eBay right now. The 2015 compacts are available now for a limited time at all Estée Lauder counters at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Bergdorf Goodman. (Select counters even do engraving.) For a unique and collectable beauty gift, take a glimpse at these beautiful compacts, new and old. Related:Happy Birthday, Estée  Lauder!

    Black Friday Shopping: How to Avoid Scams

    Shopping on Black Friday has high potential for scams   “Counterfeit sellers will pop-up just for the high volume sale days, make the sale, get your credit card information and identity, and disappear,” Craig Crosby, publisher of The Counterfeit Report, tells Yahoo Beauty. It’s easy for counterfeit sellers to get lost in the volume.” Be particularly weary of fake fragrances “Counterfeit fragrances are very common – all major brands,” says Crosby of the most counterfeited beauty item. Always buy beauty products from an authorized retailer Buying directly from the brand or from a well-known mass store (like Sephora, Macy’s, or Target, for example) is the best way to protect yourself from being ripped off. Be weary of stores like Costco, however, which aren’t authorized to sell certain brands.

It was interesting to see that the mosquitoes weren’t actually attracted to the person that was wearing the Victoria’s Secret perfume — they were repelled by it.” They studied eight commercial insect repellents, two fragrances, and a vitamin B patch.
