Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Thank you @itsfi ! Yes, I might need to add that shade to my collection 📝 I was thinking that it would look lovely on @Sunnysmom as well! 😇

 

@Sunnysmom I saw you tagged me in this thread, but can’t seem to find the post now, so apologies if you’ve already seen this!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Guessgal, it's definitely a shade in yours and @Sunnysmom's wheelhouse. I've seen a few different bundle variations with the products in the Lancome x Brickbear collab. I'm sure they'll sell out quickly, if they haven't already.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Can’t look can’t look @itsfi , have to look…! 🫣

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

That is so weird @Guessgal , I mentioned how cute these were and what a great shade 888 was. Poof gone! Hmm 🤔. Thanks for showing us! It’s def a good shade for us! 🥰

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

So cute and so pretty! I might want these! I think Lancôme does great lipsticks. @Guessgal 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@sister13 I completely agree! I bought 4 of their limited edition lipsticks last year: Valentines 2022 and all 3 of their Qi Xi lipsticks, so... I'm a little obsessed! 😅

Mara Beauty debuts at Sephora

DEC 20, 2022

Known for its oil-based skin-care products seen on the Instagram feeds of Chrissy Teigen and Hailey Bieber, Mara Beauty is making its way into Sephora. 

Starting January 3, the luxury skin-care brand’s entire collection will be available on Sephora’s site. Five products from the brand will also be available at 252 U.S. Sephora physical locations starting in March. Sephora is the latest retail partner for Mara Beauty, which is also stocked at Goop, Credo Beauty, Bluemercury, Revolve, Anthropologie and Free People, among others. The brand has seen 20% year-over-year sales growth in the past year as it has expanded its product lineup and retail footprint while gaining visibility thanks to celebrities. 

“Sephora was always the goal,” said Mara Beauty founder Allison McNamara, who launched the brand in 2018. “As I was putting the brand together, I went into Sephora and I was envisioning this brand being there.”

Retail partnerships have always been an important part of the brand’s distribution strategy, said McNamara. Currently, its DTC site accounts for 32% of its total sales. Its initial retail strategy focused on smaller clean beauty retailers and boutiques, launching at Credo Beauty three months after debuting the brand. 

“It was important for us to get that clean retailer and that respect in the clean beauty world right from the get-go,” she said.

The brand’s current top seller is its oil cleanser, while its face oil follows closely behind. Both of these products will be at the physical locations, along with the brand’s vitamin C and retinol oils. 

Mara Beauty’s oil cleanser saw a sales surge after appearing in an April 2021 nighttime skin-care routine YouTube video by Hailey Bieber, who was introduced to the brand by McNamara’s wife and Bieber’s hair colorist Cassondra Kaeding. 

“I thought Shopify was glitching” due to the increase in sales after Bieber posted the video, said McNamara. The momentum has continued in 2022, as Bieber featured the product again in a video for Allure in April. Sales of the cleansing oil are up 35% year-over-year. The brand’s Universal Face Oil also saw an increase of 20% this year, gaining its own cult status after being featured on Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram feed back in 2020.

Formerly working as both a PopSugar reporter covering celebrities and an editor at hairstylist Jen Atkin’s site Mane Addicts, McNamara recognized the power of celebrities and influencers in what she calls the “new-age pop culture conversation.” While she has a following of her own of 45,000 on Instagram, she doesn’t consider herself an influencer. 

“It’s really exciting that Sephora is going back to their roots and giving a chance to indie brands,” she said. “The landscape for so long was celebrity- and influencer-based brands. To have the opportunity to go so wide in their stores with a non-celebrity, non-influencer founder is really exciting.” 

Using mostly glass packaging and providing support for kelp reforestation efforts in the ocean as part of the “blue beauty” movement, the brand qualifies for Sephora’s “Clean + Planet-Positive” stamp. In order to earn the “Planet-Positive” designation, the brand worked with the organization Climate Vault to earn scope 1 and 2 carbon-neutral status. 

To support its Sephora launch, Mara Beauty will take part in a 75,000-packet sampling program with the retailer. For physical stores, McNamara said she plans to go on a road trip to as many locations as she can to educate store associates and managers in-person about the products. 

“It’s going to be important for me to do those active sales support moments,” she said.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Yes!!! I’m very happy to hear that Mara will be available through Sephora @CookieGirl1! Also great news that the brand will be making sample packettes available. 👍🏼 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@itsfi I'm only vaguely familiar with Mara but I've heard very positive things!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Per HAPPI: 

Sephora North America has announced the participants for its 2023 Accelerate brand incubator program. The cohort includes seven BIPOC brand founders spanning fragrance, makeup, and skincare who applied in the Fall of 2022.

Sephora said its Accelerate program, now in its eighth year, will continue to focus on BIPOC-founded and owned brands as part of its commitment to increasing BIPOC representation in its product assortment.

The 2023 Sephora Accelerate Cohort includes:

• Brianna Arps, Moodeaux (fragrance).

• Malaika Jones, Tai Beauchamp, Nia Jones, Brown Girl Jane (beauty and health).

• Alicia Scott, Range Beauty (makeup)

• Sienna Brown, Glosshood (beauty)

• Camille Martin, Seaspire Skincare (skincare)

• Karen Young, Oui the People (inclusive bodycare)

• Simedar Jackson, Of Other Worlds (beauty)

"We are very excited to welcome all 2023 finalists to the Accelerate program and into the Sephora family," said Priya Venkatesh, Senior Vice President, Global Merchandising. "Our program continues to create spaces for BIPOC-founded and owned brands that represent our clients and the world today, all while providing meaningful support for growing brands to succeed."

This year's program aims to prepare BIPOC-founded beauty brands to launch at Sephora North America via bespoke support from those in the retailer's ecosystem of beauty entrepreneurs and experts. With a focus on building community and collaboration across the beauty industry, the program features six months of weekly content and curriculum dedicated to elevating the brands and positioning them for long-term success, with programming such as Nancy Twine's (Briogeo) financial readiness series; Vicky Tsai’s (Tatcha) brand plus assortment strategy sessions; and marketing sessions with Amy Liu (Tower 28).

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. 

4.1.2022 Haul - Ami Cole 1.jpg

4.1.2022 Haul - Ami Cole 2.jpg

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.

Brand closure alert

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.
