With a Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week line-up that includes reality starlet Lauren Conrad, Nicky Hilton and the Pussycat Dolls, no one should be surprised that even the makeup collaborations would hit an all-time Hollywood-ed out low. Last season, Smashbox worked with LA label Petro Zillia (notably, not showing this season) to create a limited edition cosmetics collection; this season Smashbox has teamed up with the Pussycat Dolls to create lip gloss ($18), blush ($28) and eye shadow ($28) sold online through Smashbox and in-store at Sephora. Wait, and why don't people take LA Fashion Week seriously?
