Joanna Bonicker is a self-described fragrance fanatic who's constantly researching new products on the Internet and sniffing testers at department-store counters. So, when she grew curious about French perfume company Comptoir Sud Pacifique a few months ago, she felt she had two choices: Risk annoying her husband by shelling out $79 for a new eau de toilette or log onto makeupalley.com's makeup-swapping site. Bonicker chose the latter, arranging to trade a half-full bottle of J'Adore perfume by Christian Dior for a similarly used Comptoir Sud Pacifique spray with a woman in New York she had never met. "My husband thinks I'm crazy," said Bonicker, 29, a Baltimore waitress who has more than 40 bottles of perfume and scented body lotion thanks to her swaps.

The lip gloss industry has gotten downright kinky. What was once called mauve, bronze and mocha is suddenly Purr, Brick House and Melt My Chocolate. "Quickie!" Kristen Mallonee hissed through cherry pink lips. "This one's named Quickie!" "OK, you have to buy it then," Allison Morris said. And yet tantalizing men was not really what these college students had in mind as they browsed the pots and tubes and palettes of lip gloss at the new Sephora in the Westfield Annapolis mall. Other women pouted and preened into the cosmetic store's many mirrors, perhaps imagining an admirer's gaze, but Mallonee and Morris spent much of their time among the makeup samples looking at each other - and cracking up. Morris, 25, had painted her eyelids in thirds, each with its own electric streak of shadow.

THE LIVING MAY VERY WELL BE easy, but figuring out how to manage your changing makeup needs in the hot days of summer isn't always. Your once-perfect foundation now seems too heavy and too hot. Your expertly blended eye shadows seem way overdone. Your lip liner bleeds. And by midday, is it your imagination, or is your entire face sliding? What do you have to do to keep your summer makeup looking fresh, especially under such sunny scrutiny? We asked an expert, Allure magazine's beauty editor Victoria Kirby, for advice.

Whimsy is well in hand Trimmed with fanciful fringe and crafted from whimsical fabrics, June Land's handbags have a fun, contemporary look that's eclectic without being too wild. Not bad for a handbag designer who learned to sew only last year at the age of 41. Land, who lives in Hunt Valley, carried the first handbag she made for herself -- a sage floral bucket bag with gingham lining -- to the mall and got lots of attention from other shoppers who wanted to know who made her distinctive bag. So she started turning out more handbags and selling them at home parties, school fairs and flower shows.

The white limo door opens like an oyster shell, and there, nestled in the leather of the back seat, is our pearl. Miss Virginia USA slides out, stands up, straightens. "Am I the first one?" Yes, Virginia - if you don't count the bomb-sniffing dogs that before dawn snuffled over the Sheraton Columbia, where you'll be staying the next few weeks, or the man-packed SUVs that have been circling the hotel at absurdly slow speeds, or the heaping fruit baskets, balloons and overburdened luggage carts that have streamed in throughout this March 25 morning.

In the world of beauty, Sephora is nirvana. It's that little slice of supreme happiness that can only come from hundreds of brands of makeup, fragrances, skin and hair care products and beautifying tools, all lined up birthday-present-style in dizzying rows of color and aroma. Christian Dior rouge tubes are growing out of display racks like candy-topped mushrooms. Nail polishes are arranged in countless shades of scarlet and tangerine, shining like jewels. The syrupy sweet smell of cotton candy mixed with caramel wafts through the store.

You must remember this: lush red lips, smoky eyes, dark arched brows and a waterfall of wavy hair.The face of 1940s Hollywood screen goddesses -- Ava Gardner, Lana Turner, Veronica Lake -- hover over spring fashion displays like glamorous visions from vintage fan magazines.After all, what could be better than a retro face to go with the retro clothes -- corsets, satin slips, tight belted suits -- that sashay through designer collections in Europe and New York?Whether or not modern women will be seized by the urge to paint their lips plum and wear their hair in peekaboo waves remains to be seen.

According to Rhonda Smith, the PTA mother in charge of Market Day, it seemed as if Principal Pam Butler's lips...
