 Old Beauty News Thread

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

The Ordinary is discontinuing it's foundations and concealers.

 

"We got to where we are today by being comfortable with failing.

So instead of quietly discontinuing our Foundations and Concealers, we wanted to share a little about their upcoming departure—to reinforce our belief that the things that didn’t work out are an equally important part of the journey as those that did.   

As some of you may know, we produce our products here, from our happy home in Toronto. The production process for Colours is complex, and requires heavy input from many of our team. The accessible pricing that we felt was sensible to charge for the formulas would only cover our production costs if the volume that we sold was high. Despite many people loving the formulas, we didn’t manage to reach enough of you with our Colours range and the products have not been profitable since their launch. Although we really strongly believe in both products, their popularity simply was not strong enough to make their production sustainable. 

People were telling us we needed to market them differently— to say they had skincare benefits—to create something that wasn't there. But the Colours formulations are intentionally simplistic. Minimalistic suspensions of pigments that even out tone, with a real-skin finish—designed to be used with your skincare underneath.

 

Letting go of Colours has been a tough decision to take.

Especially difficult since many of us here use and love the products. Our hearts said no, but our heads said yes, and so we will be saying goodbye to our Colours Concealers from January 30, 2023 on theordinary.com. Foundations will be with us a little longer—until June of next year. If you’re looking for coverage with a real skin finish you may want to explore our Serum or Coverage Foundation (just don’t fall too in love). Colours are no longer available in stores and can only be purchased via theordinary.com.

Colours may return in our more distant future. Until then, we will continue to play in the space we know best—sensibly priced, science-proven skincare. And we will always, always celebrate our failures with you."

From Allure Magazine:

 

This Just In: Ami Colé Is Launching at Sephora This Month

It's been about 1.5 years since the melanin-focused brand launched and now it's finally coming to mega beauty retailer this month. 
 
December 2, 2022
 

All products featured on Allure are independently selected by our editors. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission.

Over a year ago, the beauty industry changed for the better with the launch of Ami Colé. Founded by Senegalese-American entrepreneur Diarrha N'Diaye-Mbaye, Ami Cole was named after her mother and the Black-owned brand focuses on delivering simple, skin-first makeup for melanin-rich skin, something Diarrha felt was missing in the beauty world. The brand's ethos focuses on providing an effortless, glowing look that actually doesn't take a lot of work to create. That said, it is with great excitement that we announce that Ami Colé is officially coming to Sephora

 
Starting December 30, you'll be able to shop Ami Colé products in 277 Sephora stores and on sephora.com. That means you can finally take advantage of all of those Sephora sales to get coins off your favorite products from the brand. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@CookieGirl1 & @itsfi , I'm doing a happy dance.  I just picked up the mascara and lip oil, so I'm hyped to see Sephora is going to carry the brand 🙌🏼🫶🏼🙌🏼

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Yessss!!! ♥️ This is exciting news @CookieGirl1! My experience with Ami Cole is limited but I've liked what I've picked up.

The tint blends out nicely; the color looks off for my skin tone in the swatch above, but it sheers out nicely to add just a tint of color to my complexion for soft, healthy glow.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

thanks for your thoughts @itsfi ! I’ve seen this brand around but haven’t tried it yet.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@makeitup305, I’ll be interested to try some of the new items she’s released, like the concealer and the new shade of lip oil. The latter is currently available for pre-order on her site; wondering if that will launch by the time her products become available at Sephora. 🛍️ 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@itsfi I'm only slightly familiar with the brand so it's nice to hear that you've really enjoyed things so far!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@CookieGirl1, she’s released more products since I picked up these beauties and I’m hoping one of the stores in the city will have all the items in store. 🤞🏼 I’ve heard good things about her concealer that came out earlier this year. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

I went to Rakuten to see if Amazon was having a deal (you know, maybe 1%) that I could use on Invisibobble and saw this message: Amazon is no longer affiliated with Rakuten and does not sponsor or endorse Rakuten services.

 

I don't keep up with Amazon at all, but thought I'd post it since Cyber Monday is coming up.

I did really like their lilah b. Aglow™ Face Mist Set  but it was always a little more than I wanted to spend on face mist. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Kim888 Aww this sucks.  I liked the face mist too.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Beautypedia has stated for the longest time that the site was being re-vamped.  It looks like they've gotten rid of reviews, and have replaced it with an ingredient checker and ingredient dictionary.  I'm devastated.  I was hoping for a plethora of new brands or at least new products to be reviewed.  And I'm saddened that it looks like we can't access the old reviews anymore.  Even if a formula changed, I still found it very helpful.

 

From the site:

 

What happened to the original Beautypedia review site?

 

The original Beautypedia review site has been replaced by the new Beauty Ingredient Checker, which gives you the ability to analyze and personally review any skin care product you want.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@greeneyedgirl107  Well, at least Beautypedia's not pretending to be separate from Paula's Choice anymore. 🤣 The clear bias in several of their reviews was astounding. Some reviews were objective and I understand why many folks found the site to be a helpful resource. But it seems enough other people complained about the bias and inconsistency that PC decided to drop product reviews altogether and make Beautypedia an ingredient rating tool. I mean, I'm sure other reasons played a factor that only employees know (example: maybe Unilever didn't want to be responsible for reviewing other brands' products and the potential resulting backlash). But I'm kinda sad that you and others have lost what was a helpful resource for you. 

 

I guess PC/Unilever wants Beautypedia to give users a simplified view of best, good, bad, etc. ingredients for any product. They've simply hooked this tool into the existing PC ingredient dictionary to provide more details. I'm sure many people will like the simple pie chart presentation and this type of ingredient rating. Since I'm an ingredient-driven nerd, I prefer INCIdecoder's presentations via ingredient types/categories and chart with a few ratings. (INCIdecoder hasn't rated all ingredients in their database.) I assume PC's Beautypedia team has more experience in cosmetic chemistry and/or dermatologist or esthetician practice than INCIdecoder's team—though I wish PC would be more specific/detailed about that—but I like that both sites still cite studies to back their explanations and ratings. 

 

To test Beautypedia, I entered the INCI list of The Ordinary's Alpha Arbutin + HA serum. Apparently the tool doesn't recognize "alpha arbutin" (with or without a hyphen) as an ingredient: it gave me info on alpha bisabolol instead, which is definitely not the same ingredient. 🤦‍♀️ I had to change my input to just "arbutin" to get Beautypedia to find it in the ingredient database. If this tool's gonna be this fussy about inputs, it's gonna frustrate people. I'll let PC know they should widen the acceptable keywords for each ingredient. Also, I see this new tool now advertises (eh, suggests 😂) PC products related to ingredients. Not necessarily a bad thing since it's at PC's site. Just amusing, when I remember Beautypedia's "reviews" of PC products were all 5 stars and most read exactly like brief marketing blurbs. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@WinglessOne What an insightful response!!! 

 

I think you are onto something when you mentioned that Unilever may have wanted to distance itself.

 

And good job identifying how their new system is lacking.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

For those of you who have loved the Glow Recipe Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask 2.7 oz/ 80 mL , it looks like it's being discontinued:

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@CookieGirl1 I'm so proud of them for announcing a discontinuation.  Wasn't their watermelon mask a pivotal product for them?  I'm thinking it was the one that came in a sample that was shaped like a slice of watermelon - one I kept missing out on, so I'm so familiar with the product.  

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@greeneyedgirl107 @Yes agree I wish more brands would be this open when they sunset a product !! 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Kim888 other than UD's Naked palette, I don't ever recall a brand giving people a heads-up that it was being discontinued. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@greeneyedgirl107 and I'm interested to see the "replacement" as well.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@CookieGirl1 Yeah, IDK if I've ever seen a replacement be better!
