WEST HOLLYWOOD—For the spring/summer season, make up salon Blushington has begun offering what they're calling an "on the go" makeup application. The service, which calls for a light touch and is made for people who already have pretty flawless skin, includes "tinted moisturizer, powder, blush, light concealer, lip color, brow fill-in and mascara." It's $20 and takes 20 minutes. [Racked Inbox]

WEST HOLLYWOOD—Kitson has found itself at the center of a controversy after it was discovered that the boutique had incorrectly labeled the fur on some merchandise as faux. Accessories Magazine cites a Human Society report that found "a Canada Goose infants jacket, Monnalisa todders jacket and a Street Level handbag purchased online at ShopKitson.com did not contain faux fur as advertised and as labels specified." Kitson has apologized and removed the items from its website. [Accessories Magazine]
