Social media beauty index: sex sells

Men's deodorant brand AXE is climbing up Famecount's rankings thanks to its sexy "Axe Angels" - the label's Indian branch has now even created a community, called the Axe Angels Club, which posts provocative pictures of models and sometimes even sex toys. The result: more than 30,000 new fans this week.

Clinique, Secret, and Dove are still popular thanks to campaigns they launched last month: Clinique gave away free mascara to its Facebook fans, Secret started a "meanness awareness" rally among high school students, and Dove continues its feelgood missions, including an online planner to schedule your next beauty treat.

The highest new entry this week is Maybelline, which is making waves online thanks to spokesmodels including Charlotte Kemp and Erin Wasson who star in its latest Fit Me foundation ads.

The fastest-growing brands in terms of "new fans this week" under the category "beauty" according to www.famecount.com are:

01. Clinique: +94,749 (total fans: 523,158)
02. Secret: +47,441 (total fans: 822,369)
03. Dove: +31,532 (total fans: 430,727)
04. Axe Angels Club: +31,511 (total fans: 1,222,271)
05. Maybelline New York - Canada: +25,885 (total fans: 87,686)
06. Hair Experts: +23,944 (total fans: 652,730)
