Re: BEAUTY NEWS

So looks like the Tarte shape tape foundation has the same ingredients as their hybrid gel foundation.

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 10.19.29 AM.pngScreen Shot 2018-01-21 at 10.19.39 AM.png

The first ingredient is water. you could halve the amount...

The first ingredient is water. you could halve the amount of water from the gel to make it a more full coverage product and have a very different texture. That's probably close to what they did. it's not cheating.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Man that was hard to read line by line with such fine print. Yup down to the last ingredient (which we were taught in chemistry class the order of chemicals listed is the amount or potency used in the product). SMH.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Interesting! Does same ingredients in the same order = same product? I don't know anything about this stuff, but could the amounts used differ (and thus make the foundation different)? 

Regardless, I feel like Tarte is taking a bit of a beating lately.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

@Asche I think it means it's the same, which doesn't surprise me. I wonder if Tarte will even comment on this.

RE: Re: BEAUTY NEWS

The release is now delayed at Ulta with no new release date so take that how you will lol

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Yeah the amounts could be different @Asche... but probably the same.... Thought I should share since I saw it. People can make whatever they want from it... I'm not sure what to think....

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

I'm not sure what to make of it either. Were they lazy and desperate to cash in on the Shape Tape hype? Regardless, between this and the awful shade range, Tarte has really dive-bombed in my eyes. I was never crazy about the brand in the first place, but yikes! They're off to a very bad start this year.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Sorry if this has already been covered, but is Target ditching Pixie? 

 

Not only have I not been able to find the Glow atomic at several stores, I walked into a Target tonight and every single Pixi product (still no Glow Tonic) had a yellow Clearance tag on it, and was marked down 15% or more. 

 

I sure hope if Target isn’t going to carry it, Ulta and/or Sephora will! 

hmmm... I was at my local store yesterday and they were f...

hmmm... I was at my local store yesterday and they were fully stocked. It's also still coming up in the Target app.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

@etscore1 I can’t help you with the answer because we don’t have Target in Canada, but I had a similar sinking feeling yesterday when I realized my closest Shopper’s Drug Mart is clearing out both Gosh Cosmetics and NYX.  I hate when stores do that!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

@Beadshopgirl GOSH is now completely gone from the Shoppers around me and I haven’t bought any NYX from them because they rarely get any of the new colllections (or just very, very late!). I get my NYX from London Drugs which has a much better selection, and we also got a NYX store now!

Sailor Smooth Sailing Resurfacing Mask

Spoiler
Organic Indie beauty brand Captain Blankenship is introducing a lower-priced little sister brand exclusively at Target.

Sailor by Captain Blankenship is this month rolling out to 1,668 Target doors — that’s almost all of the retailer’s 1,834 store total — and target.com. The line consists of five skin and hair products that are unisex and formulated with plant-based ingredients. Prices range from $14.99 to $19.99.

Captain Blankenship — which is based in New York’s Hudson River Valley and is in about 250 U.S. doors at retailers like Credo, Follain, sephora.com and Anthropologie — is perhaps best known for its signature Mermaid hair franchise, including a sea salt spray, hair oil, dry shampoo and a gold-flecked shine spray that gives hair an Instagrammable glimmer effect. All of Captain Blankenship’s products are formulated with wild-harvested, organic plant oils, flowers, seaweeds, sea salt and organic essential oils, and without synthetic preservatives, parabens, sulfates and non-natural fragrances. That kind of specific formulation can come at a price — Captain Blankenship’s products run up to $38, higher than the average beauty item at Target.

The retailer approached founder Jana Blankenship about creating an exclusive, lower-priced line based off her Captain Blankenship formulations. A visit to Target headquarters last year proved to Blankenship that the retailer is serious about getting behind Indie lines and natural beauty. “We’re excited to see that Target is expanding its green beauty offering — it’s a way to reach a different audience, and for us it’s important to get green beauty in everyone’s hands.”

Target is indeed ramping up its natural beauty presence. WWD reported last year the retailer added several new natural brands, including The Seaweed Bath Co., W3ll People, S.W. Basics, Fig + Yarrow and Nourish Organic. Later this month, Meow Meow Tweet will enter 440 stores and target.com with its four best-selling stockeeping units, including its signature aluminum-free deodorant sticks and baking soda-free deodorant cream.

The inspiration for Sailor came from Blankenship’s trip to the Greek islands last summer. Said Blankenship of her tight sku assortment: “You’re traveling and you’re on a boat — what are the things you need? What are your essentials?”.

Included in the Sailor lineup is the Sea Splash Cleanser with grapefruit and sea kelp, Sea Mist Refreshing Toner with basil and witch hazel, Sea Salt Refresh Spray with lemongrass and rosemary and Smooth Sailing Gentle Resurfacing Mask with aloe and pineapple and Deep Blue Face Moisturizer with bergamot and blue chamomile. Blankenship is planning to add more hair and body products to the assortment later this year.

Since founding her line in 2009, Blankenship has observed consumer demand for natural products hit critical mass.

“People are realizing that what you absorb in skin has an impact on your health — we’re excited to be on shelves near conventional products and create product that is accessible to the wider public. It’s not just Target and it’s not just a trend — people’s awareness is changing and they’re learning to read labels on beauty products like they would a loaf of bread.”

Shiseido revealed Tuesday that it is launching a new brand that aims to respond to the needs of female high school students in an interactive, feedback-driven manner.

The new brand, called Posme, was developed by Shiseido’s Innovation Design Lab, which launched a year ago with the goal of helping to move the company. Posme is an amalgamation of the words “post” and “me,” reflecting the importance of social media among the digital natives it is targeting.

Posme products are developed together with a team of high school aged girls, dubbed Posme & Co., who provide Shiseido with information on their needs, as well as feedback on existing products and prototypes. The first product in the line is a multifunctional makeup item that gives customers the freedom to experiment with different looks, without making much of a commitment.

Play Color Chips are small squares with peel-off plastic coverings revealing a sample-sized amount of makeup product that can be applied using a fingertip to eyes, cheeks and lips. They will be sold in packs of six (priced at 300 yen, or $2.70, per pack). The packaging features cute, cartoon-like drawings of shoes, handbags, perfume bottles and more.

The product was developed based on feedback from members of Posme & Co., who said that they wanted to be able to experiment with different makeup looks for different events, but that having product left over was wasteful. The color chips are also extremely portable, easily fitting between a smartphone and its case, or in between the pages of a notebook or agenda.

When Play Color Chips hit the Japanese market on Jan. 26, eight colors will be available, followed by eight more on Feb. 23, and an additional five on March 16. There are no plans for an international launch at this time.

Additional Posme products will be developed based on the insights of Posme & Co., but they won’t necessarily all be cosmetic products. Shiseido said Posme will work with other companies to create a license business, meaning the possibilities for future products are wide ranging. A spokesman for the company said they could include anything from colored contact lenses and electronic products to sweets and textiles.

In the Shibuya neighborhood of Tokyo, Shiseido has set up a space called Posme Lab, where girls can go to share ideas and give feedback to Posme staff. The space is temporary, but will be open on Fridays through Sundays for at least a year, at which point the team will reevaluate its effectiveness. There is also a digital Posme Lab, a “creative platform” that can be used in much the same way.

In addition to being sold at Shibuya’s Posme Lab — in vending machines like the kind used to sell cheap toys at family-friendly restaurants and shopping malls — Posme Play Color Chips will be sold in drugstores and multi-category retailers. The company also plans for the brand to have a presence at various events targeting young people, including music and sports events.

This is an example of a former beauty campaign where an altered image was used. Starting this year, imagery will be not be retouched and will feature the new Beauty Mark.

Spoiler
CVS Pharmacy consumers no longer have to feel less than adequate in the beauty aisles. In its quest to lead positive change around transparency in beauty, starting in April, CVS won’t alter images on its collateral materials in the beauty category. And the company is making a clarion call for its brand partners to do the same.

The push to keep it real is part of CVS’ efforts to promote wellness. The link between imagery in its stores, on its web site and marketing materials and health is critical to CVS, where 80 percent of its customers are women. “We are a very large health-care company and we are also a big beauty retailer. We’ve been thinking a lot about the responsibility that we have [to our customers] and our messages to women,” Helena B. Foulkes, executive vice president, CVS Health and president CVS Pharmacy, told WWD. “It really is a health-care issue and part of what we want to stand for in beauty.” The American Medical Association has identified the propagation of unrealistic body images as a significant driver of health issues, particularly among young women, Foulkes shared. “When you think about all the media that all of us consume every day, the concern is that young girls in particular have unrealistic images of what they should look like,” Foulkes elaborated.

CVS Beauty Mark


As of April, photography in beauty produced by CVS will not be tampered with, meaning nothing has been done to change the size, shape portion, skin or eye color as well as no enhancements made to alter lines, wrinkles or any other individual characteristics in post-production. The specially-created CVS Beauty Mark will alert consumers to the untouched imagery. The CVS Beauty Mark will start to appear on CVS Pharmacy-produced beauty imagery this year with the goal of all images in the beauty sections of CVS Pharmacy stores reflecting transparency by the end of 2020. CVS will be working with brand partners to ensure transparency across all beauty images. Brands who do photoshop their images will have a notation they are digitally modified so consumers know what’s real and what’s not.

This announcement is the latest in a string of purpose-driven decisions that kicked off with the elimination of tobacco in 2014, followed by the influx of health food and last year’s decision to eliminate harmful chemicals in its private-label beauty products by 2019. On the pharmacy side, CVS limits opioid prescriptions to seven days (for certain conditions).

Beauty brand reaction to the overhaul has been positive, Foulkes said, especially as the industry scrambles for ways to boost mass-market sales. “People see the need. They are questioning how does the mass beauty market regain its strength and growth. Transparency in beauty is a bigger issue and reflects the voice of consumers,” she said. Many beauty companies have already started the conversation about their messages to consumers. “This is a journey we want to start together.”

Linda Wells, Revlon’s chief creative officer, is among those engaged in the conversation. “Revlon, Almay and its brands support and share CVS’ mission to present positive images of women and their individual characteristics and personal distinction,” stated Wells. “Revlon’s new Live Boldly campaign, and Almay’s Reveal the True You positioning, are evidence of this new expression, one that embraces and celebrates real humanity in beauty.”

Foulkes added that companies are using more plus-size and diverse models. “Women are more empowered and are saying it isn’t OK to only see skinny women in ads.” She is quick to point out efforts don’t diminish the aspirational goals of the cosmetics industry. “We love that beauty makes people feel better about themselves. But we don’t want them looking at imagery and saying, I don’t feel good enough.”

Girls Inc., a nonprofit organization with the central goal of empowering and inspiring girls and young women, applauded CVS’ actions. “Girls Inc. is honored to be a partner in CVS Pharmacy’s movement to counter limiting stereotypes too often faced by girls and women. Allowing diversity and natural beauty to shine will have an immensely positive impact on girls and women everywhere,” said Judy Vredenburgh, Girls Inc. president and chief executive officer.

CVS is putting a big push on beauty, adding hot spots to show innovation, implementing more than 2,000 naturally positioned items in select doors and going full-throttle on South Korean beauty. Although pharmacy is the leading driver of sales, CVS is ramping up efforts to get more production out of its front end, especially beauty/personal care, which industry experts estimate produces half of the non-Rx volume. CVS did not comment on the estimates.

Foulkes did however, give thumbs up to fourth-quarter sales at the chain. “And the beginning of the year [in beauty] is already off to a strong start."
