Garbage Moves Further Into Makeup World

Let Kiss and Ozzy Osbourne have their action figures and comic books; Garbage is dedicating its non-musical energies to the world of makeup.

The group recently unveiled its "Version 2.0" nail polish (see "Garbage Offers Up 'Version 2.0' Nail Polish") and now it's coming out with its own lip gloss.

Whereas "Version 2.0" nail polish is available on the band's Web site www.garbage.com, "Garbage Gloss" is for sale at the site of cosmetic company Starcrazy (www.starcrazy.com). Frontwoman Shirley Manson herself came up with the color for "Garbage Gloss," described on the site as a "cross between raspberry and plum with a pearlized twist."

The lip gloss will set fans back $13.50, with all proceeds from sales being donated to cancer research hospitals handpicked by the bandmembers.

If the

group's music excites you more than its cosmetic products, mark November 9 on your calendar: that's the day that the soundtrack to the new James Bond film, "The World Is Not Enough," hits stores, featuring the Garbage-performed title track (see "Garbage Puts Bond To Bed; B-Sides, Remixes Up Next").

Meanwhile, the band is gearing up for to headline the MTV-sponsored "Campus Invasion Tour," which will also feature Lit (see "Garbage, Lit Line Up Campus Invasion Tour").
