Revlon Inc.’s 2017 year-end reports revealed that the beauty company sustained more than $183 million in losses, in great part due to its 2016 acquisition of Elizabeth Arden, Inc. for $870 million.  Yet, 2017 sales were up by 15.4 per cent.  The company has been beleaguered by restructuring costs and management shake-ups.

According to a report in WWD, Revlon said it “continued to accelerate the realization of synergies and cost reductions on the restructuring and integration of Elizabeth Arden, delivering $69 million of synergies and cost reductions for the year.”  Former CEO, Fabian Garcia stepped down from his position in January, serving fewer than two years on the job, handing over the company’s reins to board member, Paul Meister, as interim Chief.  Currently Revlon is on the hunt for its next Chief Executive Officer.

Elizabeth Arden just announced the launch of its March On campaign, featuring a limited edition lipstick, in the brand’s signature Red Door Red shade and signed by Reese Witherspoon, which will be sold globally with 100% of the proceeds donated to UN Women.

The program, in partnership with the brand’s Storyteller-in-Chief and female advocate Reese Witherspoon, is designed to celebrate women’s achievements, encourage women to support other women and includes a pledge to donate $1 million to UN Women in support of their work to advance women’s issues worldwide.  The limited edition March On red lipstick serves as a powerful symbol of unity and advocacy and invites women around the world to signal their support for one another.

“There is real strength and camaraderie in March On and the feeling that we are in this together. By bringing UN Women, Elizabeth Arden and women everywhere together we can help change women’s lives around the world for the better,” explains Reese Witherspoon. “I have the unique privilege to not only tell these women’s stories through my production company as well as my relationship with Elizabeth Arden, but I also get to encourage them to share their own stories through March On.”
