Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Revlon has filed for bankruptcy - from Hypebae

 

Cosmetics conglomerate Revlon has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection due to its debt load and the changing e-commerce vertical.

 

The company expects to receive $575 million USD in debtor-in-possession financing from its existing lender base, which will help support its day-to-day operations. “Today’s filing will allow Revlon to offer our consumers the iconic products we have delivered for decades, while providing a clearer path for our future growth,” Debra Perelman, Revlon’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said to Business Wire. “Consumer demand for our products remains strong — people love our brands, and we continue to have a healthy market position. But our challenging capital structure has limited our ability to navigate macro-economic issues in order to meet this demand.”

 

Revlon has faced fierce competition in recent years from indie beauty brands that are better positioned to meet the needs and wants of the Gen Z makeup demands. See more on Revlon’s filing and case background as this story develops.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@pocketvenus This reminded me of when Revlon dropped Cindy Crawford.  Here's an old NY Post article from 2000:

 

Revlon has reportedly traded in Cindy Crawford for a younger supermodel.

 

Revlon, whose value has dropped from billions to millions since the ’80s, says the 34-year-old Crawford’s look is out of fashion, according to a report yesterday on the Fox News Channel’s Web site, Foxnews.com.

 

They’re seeking “a new face for a new era” – looking for a barely 20-year-old younger model to fill Crawford’s high-heeled boots.

 

Possible Crawford replacements include Goldie Hawn’s ingenue daughter Kate Hudson and ultra-hot supermodel Gisele Bundchen, London’s Daily Mail reports.

 

A Revlon spokesman said: “Everyone has to move forward. It’s a new era. We’re moving with the times, and we need a new face to reflect that. It will be someone revolutionary.”

Crawford started with the company as a sweet, young 23-year-old.

 

In her two decades on the catwalks, she’s married and divorced Richard Gere, then married night-life entrepreneur Rande Gerber and become a mom – but her looks haven’t changed.

Her thick chestnut mane, deep red lipstick, beauty mark and brown eyeshadow are still firmly in place. But Revlon says she looks dated.

 

Ironically, Revlon is currently using Crawford to promote its hair-care products – which hearken back to the big and bouncy “Charlie’s Angels” hairstyles of the ’70s.

Her $3 million-a-year deal has been her biggest contract for more than a decade, plastering her face all over the world.

 

But her celebrity may have been her downfall. Revlon research showed she became almost invisible to consumers because she was such a familiar face.

 

Customers didn’t see the product lines launched by Crawford’s face as new products, the research found.

 

With its new trademark face, Revlon will seek out a younger, hipper following.

Meanwhile, sources say Crawford’s going the way of other disgruntled models and launching her own cosmetics brand to rival the firm that got rid of her.

 

She already has many personal businesses, including lucrative exercise videos.

Revlon says she may well continue working for the cosmetics giant “in a smaller capacity,” but she’s not yet old enough for its age-defying range – Melanie Griffith’s still got that job.

 

Crawford isn’t the only 30-something bombshell who’s getting let go for a 20-something.

Estée Lauder is also expected to ax Liz Hurley, 34, as its “face,” replacing her with 28-year-old Gwyneth Paltrow.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@greeneyedgirl107 Thanks for sharing, I didn't know her career with Revlon was so major! What a horrible way to talk about someone's face though, comparing someone's features to a dated trend 😮

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

For those interested, Isamaya Ffrench's debut collection will be available for pre-order on Monday, June 27. More info on each of the products on British Vogue.

Edited to Add: Who's Issayama French? She's a British makeup arrtist and the former Creative Director for Byredo Makeup and the former Global Beauty Director for Burbery. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

How cool @itsfi ! I’m out of it, who is this?! 😆🤦🏻‍♀️

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

No worries @Sunnysmom. Whoops! I should have included something in the post; will edit it. Thank you.

 

Isamaya Ffrench is a British makeup arrtist and the former Creative Director for Byredo Makeup and the former Global Beauty Director for Burbery. Her collection is said to "embody a nonconformist understanding of 'glam'." In a previous interview she mentioned her line as being more "edgy" than what she's done in the past. Here's an excerpt from the article in British Vogue (I think we can include excerpts if I attribute them correctly. I guess we shall find out.) - 

 

""Because Isamaya isn’t your typical beauty brand: it’s not selling you some repackaged notion of beauty in the traditional sense, nor is it relying on tired millennial tropes to appeal to a younger audience. It’s simply about providing the tools for people to express themselves in a way that’s incredibly freeing. “Everyone’s always banging on about make-up to transform yourself,” says Ffrench. “I’ve done the transformation thing, and I get it. But actually, I think make-up is a tool to return to who you are. And I think this collection could speak to people that can be more of their authentic self with this style of make-up, as opposed to like, a pretty girly blusher or something else.”" (from British Vogue, June 7, 2022, An Exclusive Look At Issamaya Ffrench's Debut Make-Up Collection by Tish Weinstock)

 

 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Oh @itsfi ! No you shouldn’t have had to explain! That makes sense from the looks of the collection! 😆 I’ve not paid attention to their directors , oops! Thank you! 😘

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Oh no, thank you @Sunnysmom! I had meant to put something in the post about Isamaya Ffrench but (clearly) forgot to before hitting “Post” - it’s hard to slow down when there’s exciting news to share - so your comment was good and gracious feedback. Thank you. 😊 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Ha no you always do it right @itsfi , I just decided I’d better ask and confess to my ignorance on who she was! 😂😘

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Sunnysmom, it doesn’t hurt to ask and I’m happy you did. Her initial release is heavily edited. Just 5 products. Not saying that’s bad or good. I think I may prefer that approach for a host of reasons, though I also wouldn’t mind if there were more of a color selection with the lip serum. I plan to do a more careful read of that article another time as it has a review of the products, but am mindful it is based on one person’s opinion. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

😘 thanks for the kindness always @itsfi , great info too! I’d love to see more colors tho I do appreciate a good edit too! 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Puig is set to acquire a majority stake in Byredo which has been valued at  €1 billion! Not sure how I feel about this. After Puig bought L'Artisan Parfumeur, the house stopped doing anything creative and boundary pushing and now all the releases are what I'm going to call "commercial niche." Byredo has been doing commercial niche for ages but I feel like this just kills all possibility of Byredo doing anything weird ever again. Maybe it's a good match afterall.

Per Allure: KKW Beauty is officially dead. Now, meet SKKN By Kim, her nine-product skin-care line.

 

There were too many hyper-links present, or else I would have copied and pasted the full article here.
