KERRY WASHINGTON X NEUTROGENA

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

In a world filled with celebrity collaborations, one which stands out is Kerry Washington’s latest endeavor with Neutrogena. The actress and Brand Ambassador has created limited-edition Essential Eye ($12.99) and Cheek ($9.99) Palettes, available on-line at Neutrogena and Ulta Beauty (in-store on April 22nd).  Promoting “Confidence, Elegance, and Power,” the creative consultant made sure that the line would work double-time; the 12-hour eyeshadow palette features five blendable shades which contain a built-in primer, while the cheek trio offers a buildable bronzer, blush, and highlighter which multitask as eyeshadow and dusting powder.

“On a busy day, if I keep these two essential palettes in my purse at all times — I can have other products that I toss in and out — but if I have these two, I’m armed with everything I need, no matter who I am, no matter where I’m going,” Washington says. “I wanted it to work for everybody, for every situation, to take the complexity out of it and just have your essential kit.”  **SWAG Alert to follow soon!

TAKING MASS TO PRESTIGE: WET ‘N’ WILD COMES TO ULTA BEAUTY!

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

After a successful collaboration in May with its limited-edition Unicorn Box, mass-makeup label, Wet ‘n’ Wild, is coming to Ulta Beauty.   The cruelty-free, budget-conscious beauty brand has been popular with Generations X and Y, since its launch in the late 1970s.  Then it was known for its $.99 nail polishes, eyeliners, and cult-favorite lip pencils — #666 still holds a place in Beauty Undercover’s Product Hall of Fame. Today Millennials have embraced Wet ‘n’ Wild for its value pricing, influencer and celebrity following (Jeffree Star, Angela Basset, Jessica Biel, Meryl Streep, Solange Knowles, and Manny Mua are fans), and reputation for replicating many prestige skus, known as “dupes.”  More than 100 products and limited-edition collections will hit Ulta Beauty’s shelves in nearly two-thirds of its retail stores this February.  The brand will also collaborate with the retailer on exclusive products.

Speaking with WWD, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Evelyn Wang shares, “We can play numerous roles in Ulta — we can be a basket filler for that consumer who is buying, say, a really high-end foundation. We can allow her to play with trend and color and it’s not going to break the bank. She can be like, “OK, here’s my investment products and here are my fun products.’”
