 Old Beauty News Thread

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Nahnom. If so, they aren't getting another dime from my purse. What a gauche, disrespectful 'joke' to put on a celebratory Cake. Plus, the posting of many of one's personal event stuff on social media is..impersonal. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

From the NY Post: Ulta Beauty is attempting to makeup with fans after ugly backlash over its latest “tone-deaf” email promotion.

 

 

Spoiler

The cosmetics mega company sent out an email for a Kate Spade perfume on Sunday that unintentionally alluded to the designer’s suicide. Ulta’s message to customers read “Come hang with Kate Spade” alongside a sale for its beauty products.

 

Spade died by suicide when she hanged herself in 2018. She was 55.

 

The beauty behemoth apologized in a statement to The Post on Monday.

 

“Ulta Beauty recently sent an email featuring Kate Spade New York fragrance with an insensitive subject line and for this, we sincerely apologize,” the rep said. “Mental health is a very serious, important issue in this country, and not something we would ever take lightly. We apologize to the Spade family, our Kate Spade New York brand partners and to our guests. Thank you for understanding as we strive to do better.”

 

Fans were appalled by the reference and expressed outrage on social media.

 

“How disgusting to use for clickbait,” wrote one, believing the message was written intentionally.

“I cannot believe I got this email today,” one person wrote on Twitter. “Is this some kind of sick joke? How insensitive and absolutely tone-deaf. Apparently nobody in marketing at Ulta remembers how Kate Spade died. Disgusting.”

 

Another chimed in “Just got this email … this is wrong of Ulta Beauty … Kate Spade committed suicide by hanging herself.”

 

“Ulta Beauty corporate probably having a MELTDOWN realizing somebody sent out a promo email with the subject line Come hang with Kate Spade … somebody’s losing their job,” a user added.

 

”Ulta Beauty f—ked up with their Kate Spade email. Not only did I get a metric f—k ton of emails all night, but the headline was BULLS—T. Ulta gives no care to the mental health community, Kate Spade or her family. Gross,” a fan wrote.

 

As May marks Mental Health Awareness month, another noted, “Kate Spade was amazing and an icon. Your lack of attention to detail is sad at best, negligent and hurtful at worst. Do better. #MentalHealthAwareness.”

 

Criticizing the critics currently disseminating the promo, one insisted, “Sharing that awful ulta beauty x kate spade email is honestly worse than ulta sending it in my opinion because someone in the comments who would’ve never seen it otherwise literally said they were triggered by it. that person should’ve just emailed ulta.”

 

At the time of the fashion icon’s death, her family sent out a statement saying: “To most of the world, she was Kate Spade, the beautiful embodiment of her brand and a glamorous cultural icon.”

 

Kate Spade founded the brand with husband Andy Spade in the early 90s, putting up their own money to launch their line of preppy, colorful handbags, which they hustled together at trade shows for years until the likes of Barneys and Saks would carry them — and without the help of celebrity endorsements as so many brands rely on these days.

 
How Kate Spade’s handbags took over the world
 

The duo sold their stake in Kate Spade to Neiman Marcus in 2006 — by then already considered iconic, and expanded beyond bags to include other accessories, clothing and home goods.

Andy released his own statement at the time of Kate’s death, explaining that “there were personal demons she was battling.”

 

“Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives,” he wrote in 2018.

 

If you are struggling with suicidal thoughts or are experiencing a mental health crisis and live in New York City, you can call 1-888-NYC-WELL for free and confidential crisis counseling. If you live outside the five boroughs, you can dial the 24/7 National Suicide Prevention hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or go to suicidepreventionlifeline [dotorg)

Wella Buys Natural Hair Care Brand Briogeo

ZombieMetroAnt_0-1651257476493.png

 

The acquisition marks a sharpening focus on sustainability, said Annie Young-Scrivner, Wella's CEO. 

 

Spoiler

Wella Company has made its first acquisition under KKR’s ownership. 

The parent company of OPI, Nioxin and GHD has added Briogeo, the natural hair care brand founded by Nancy Twine in 2013, to its portfolio for an undisclosed sum. As reported by WWD, the brand was said to reach a sales volume exceeding $100 million, per industry sources. 

Annie Young-Scrivner, Wella’s chief executive officer, said that while Wella’s business was growing double digits, Briogeo caught her eye because of its own rise in sales. “We looked at companies growing even faster than us,” she said. “With Briogeo’s size, [Twine] has just knocked it out of the park, doing extremely well in premium retail and also building her digital capacity.” 

Young-Scrivner added that while the brands in her purview already focused on sustainability, Briogeo’s commitment to the cause would allow Wella to double down on it. “We’re very thoughtful of areas where we’re not as strong,” she said.

 

The infusion will also ignite product development in current and adjacent categories. “We have an incredible innovation arm with research and development centers across the globe, and we could fuel her growth in hair, and maybe in skin,” Young-Scrivner said. 

International expansion is in the works for the brand, which has a presence in the U.S. as a Sephora-exclusive brand and a growing presence in key markets. “[Twine’s] strength is that she started her business in the U.S., and she’s starting that expansion in Europe and Asia. We could definitely help fuel that ⁠— we’re in 100 countries across the globe, and it’s also making sure we’re growing in the right way,” Young-Scrivner explained. 

“The strength of Wella Company’s research and development, digital marketing and global operations, and their ability to reach 91 million hair and nail professionals and followers they serve and support will take our Briogeo brand to the next level,” said Nancy Twine, CEO of Briogeo, in a statement. “This is a significant strategic partnership for both sides, and one that is compatible in ambition, philosophy and culture. In Wella Company we have a committed partner to help our business and our employees reach the next level of growth. We’re excited to accelerate our expansion and innovation, globally delighting more people in more geographies and through broader delivery channels.”

Dries van Noten has a limited beauty line including refillable lipsticks, perfumes, combs and pocket mirrors. The cases for the later two are made with ‘upcycled fabrics from past collections,’ according to Vogue.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

These are really pretty aren’t they @eshoe , sigh. Lol. I’m sure you saw this as well but I thought it was kind of a helpful guide as Lexi mentioned the site shows them much warmer than they appeared to be from the shades she selected anyway. Yup I’m down that good old rabbit hole yet again! Holding on to those purse strings tightly. For now…! 💞

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Wonderfully realistic-looking swatches in this screen -shot, @eshoe , @Sunnysmom I.s.Smudged on paper is surprisingly effective, appealingly amateur and approachable. Rose Cliche -! Antwerp Vermilion!

Guess we could hope for a trio of miniatures? A holiday set?

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

I love a good fast imperfect smudge of a swipe @MvLL ! I nearly ordered Rose Cliche! Held off. Lol Yes, a set would be good fun! 💞

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Oooooooh a holiday set, @MvLL! @Sunnysmom there is a lilac shade that is supposed to be coming out (I did not see it in the swatches, but elsewhere)…that would be a fun addition to a mini set.  

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

You don’t really see a good lilac too much do you @eshoe , 🤔 how pretty for spring! Such a big color “trend” this year too. Seems kind of classic to me! 🤷🏻‍♀️ What do I know. Lol 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

No, @Sunnysmom, I had not seen this yet. Thank you! I need to watch her video and now that the family is asleep, I can turn my attention to this little endeavor!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@eshoe, the packaging on the DVN items are beautiful. Lexi Jong put up a YT video about 3 weeks ago talking about the lipsticks and fragrances, if anyone is interested. Here's a screen shot with swatches of some of the lipsticks:

Lexi Jong YTLexi Jong YT

 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Oh WOW @itsfi.…those are too gorgeous. I was not aware of this, so I think I will be watching it today. They look perfect for fall.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@eshoe, there are other YT videos on these lipsticks. You might be able to find swatches of other shades as well. 🙂

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Thank you @itsfi, I started with the one you suggested. I feel like this is going to be time well spent, and that in the end, the choice will be a meaningful one💄 and one that will make my lips happy, too😉

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

True ugh @itsfi @eshoe , I saw this earlier as well and tried to unsee it!!  I. Think. I . Have. To. Try. One. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Sunnysmom, I figured you must have seen these, at least in passing. From the swatches, it looks like couple of those lippies  would be right at home with the other members of the sunnysmom lipstick family. 😉 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Literally in passing yes @itsfi ! In some Allure article I think maybe? I did not see this YT tho so I will def check  Lexi out thank you! Remember that other lip too that was kind of a sculpture kind of thing? It was Valde Beauty I think. $$ oof , pricey rascals. Did not succumb to that one! I mean I have some kind of restraint 😳🙃, clearly a bad joke. Maybe Sunny needs one for her bag. 🤔😆 

@blackkitty2014 have you seen these yet?! Don’t potch me. Lol lol 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

@Sunnysmom oh yes Sunny definitely needs one for her bag so does Buddy (Behind the scene; Buddy likes “But but mom …”and his mom likes “shush bud” 😂🤣)

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Hee hee @blackkitty2014 I love that! Buddy says thanks for having my back Auntie blackkitty ! 😍

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

These look like mini pieces of art, @Sunnysmom. I am not usually bowled over by lipsticks but these ar e just so beautiful!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS 2.0

Oh boy they surely do @eshoe ! Will you try one you think?
