We always look forward to seeing the works of art MAC creates each month for its latest campaigns (we even print a few for posterity). But the beauty brand is binding together the best of the best for a new tome, called Miles of MAC, which will be released in the midst of the Fashion Week madness. Shot by Miles Aldridge in collaboration with MAC’s senior vice president and creative director James Gager, the cinematic scenarios are sure to become top shelf! [The Cut]

Lush has something fresh cooked up! The organic cosmetics brand will launch a new online program, called Lush Kitchen, to provide beauty buffs with limited edition products that will be shipped out the day they’re created. Though it’s already out in the U.K., those on this side of the pond will have to wait until the spring to get their hands on the brand new buys. The countdown starts now! [Women’s Wear Daily]

Looks like Lucky isn’t the only one shifting their settings to shop! Allure is the latest Condé Nast commodity to offer spa and salon bookings through a partnership with BeautyBooked. Readers will be able to book services 24 hours a day with customized searches geo-targeted to their locale. “We’re marrying accessibility with information,” said Linda Wells, editor in chief of Allure. “This is just a very intuitive way of interacting with the salon and making lives a lot easier.” [Women’s Wear Daily]

There’s no need to strip down in order to slip into something sexy. Agent Provocateur has just unleashed its latest sultry scent, Femme Fatale, exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue. The provocative perfume boasts notes of pink pepper, mango nectar, gardenia, Orris Absolute, Indonesian Patchouli, skin musk, vanilla orchid, chocolate gourmand, and Spanish Labdanum to seduce with just a spritz.

Sunscreen is a year-round beauty essential. But if you still need more incentive to stock up on the skincare must, you should check out the new video from Thomas Leveritt. The artist gave a group a women a peek into their future if they continue to skip the sunscreen through the use of an ultraviolet camera. Sun damage, age spots, and freckles sprung up on their faces, which shocked many. Somone pass the SPF, please. [Pop Sugar]
