Lupita Nyong'o's Lip Balm Takes Off

Plus Vogue Italia's latest blackface blunder, Chanel makes headphones happen, and more of the top stories of the day

• Remember the other day at the Oscars, how Lupita Nyong'o didn't have any cash, so she put her lip balm in the tip hat for the lucky pizza delivery guy who happened to be chosen to deliver a bunch of pizzas to the Academy Awards? Well, eagle-eyed beauty hawks were paying close attention, and discerned that Miss N. was carrying Clarins HydraQuench Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm. She tossed it in without a care, fully unaware that she'd be creating a bit of a frenzy for the blue balm. Now it's fully sold out, thanks to the Oscar winner, so whoops! Slept on that one.

• There are actually quite a lot of healthy foods with heaps of sugar in them. Take, for instance, salad dressing or flavored yogurts, both of which are often packed with extra grams of sugar. Get the full list of secretly sugary foods at the jump. [ABC News]

• How is this still a thing? Seriously. Vogue Italia, unbelievably no stranger to conflicts around its use of blackface in the past, is in hot water again after they released a new photoshoot featuring model Saskia de Brauw in what can only be described as modified blackface. The makeup was for a shoot titled "Abracadabra," and features de Brauw posing in colorful, "warrior" makeup standing with taxidermied lions and goats. What do you think of the pics? [Vogue Italia]

• We want: Chanel is doing a collaboration with Monster headphones and yes, please, we'd absolutely love a pair if you've got an extra. Thanks, you're so kind. [Styleite]

• One girl's account of doing a juice cleanse as a recovering anorexic. "Knowing that I can finally decide what makes me feel sluggish and what makes me feel fantastic is a huge triumph for me," she writes. "Recovery is a moving target, and I'm happy that I could make it through what for so many people is just a trendy diet." [The Gloss]
