What happens when your favorite beauty product is discontinued?
After finding out her beloved Tom Ford Golden Peach cream and powder eye color had been discontinued, content creator Hannah Chody began tracking down any remaining sets. Brands discontinue products for a number of reasons, such as scarcity, difficulty obtaining a key ingredient or even regulatory issues, Beth Sobol writes for Allure. As a result, some consumers go to great lengths to get their hands on any remaining inventory: embarking on lengthy trips, shipping products into the U.S. from other countries or splurging on multiples when they finally come across the discontinued product. {Allure}

AI has come for beauty pageants
Following the rise of artificial intelligence-generated “content creators,” subscription platform Fanvue recently announced the Fanvue World AI Creator Awards (WAICAs), the first beauty pageant for AI-generated influencers. Fanvue expects the “AI creator economy” to exceed $1 billion this year, and its “Miss AI” pageant will judge contestants on “classic aspects of pageantry” as well as the “skill and implementation of AI tools” to create the digital models. The pageant is being met with concerns that this sets a dangerous precedent and could worsen already harmful beauty standards. {Glamour}
