EDiTORiAL WHAT A BEGINNING TO NOVEMBER Besides being a week late getting started on the East Coast, and the Presidential election finally being over—yes, it did seem to go on forever—there are some bright signs in the consumer retail recovery. Macy’s continues to post solid gains in their brick-and-mortar and particularly their online business. This all bodes well for consumer confidence and, hopefully, will carry us through the last quarter with a respectable holiday season. However, it is unclear at this point whether Wall Street will play along. No doubt, there is a fair amount of angst over Obama being elected to a second term. We shall see. Sandy, of course, offered her dynamics on an economic front, but more importantly, on a political front as well. There is no doubt that in the last week of the campaign, Sandy was in the forefront, and Obama’s proactive and skillful response to the disaster was all that was needed to blunt whatever momentum Romney had. Be that as it may. In the immortal words of Thomas Jefferson, “I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.” So now it is time to continue the economic recovery and make this holiday season the best ever.

THEBEAUTYBIZ Fabulous Isaac Mizrahi At Bloomies The launch of Isaac Mizrahi’s first fragrance for women was celebrated at an exciting press event at Bloomingdale’s 59th Street on October 18. Bloomingdale’s is the exclusive bricks-and-mortar retailer for the fragrance, Fabulous Isaac Mizrahi, through the holiday season. Mr. Mizrahi declared that Bloomingdale’s was the perfect launching pad for the fragrance because “I’m a New Yorker and was born here. I always remember Bloomingdale’s as being fabulous.” At the PA, he was accompanied by the poodle that appeared in the advertisement for Fabulous Isaac Mizrahi. “Poodles are on a list of things that I love,” he explained as his reason for including the dog in the fragrance’s ad campaign. Mr. Mizrahi will also do a PA at Bloomingdale’s at Century City in mid-November.

Its Senior Vice President Marketing, Dennis Keogh, shared that Bloomingdale’s has been a fabulous partner. “Bloomingdale’s represents the style and sophistication of New York City. They got the power of Isaac right from the beginning of the project.” A gift-with-purchase for Fabulous Isaac Mizrahi is a coin purse. During the holiday season, a hat box featuring the fragrance with Isaac Mizrahi’s signature on the flacon will be offered. Mr. Keogh is looking for the fragrance to rank in the top ten at Bloomingdale’s for the fall/ holiday season. Bloomingdale’s Howard Kreitzman, Vice President and DMM for Cosmetics and Fragrance, declared, “We are absolutely thrilled to be the exclusive retail store for the new Fabulous Isaac Mizrahi. We are grateful that Isaac joined us to celebrate The Cloudbreak Group’s Carmela the launch of his exciting new fragrance. Palladino with Mr. Kreitzman We have great expectations for it.” BF

s the new President and CEO of AMOREPACIFIC Corporation in the Americas, Bradley Horowitz has outlined his vision for highlighting the company’s brand awareness as well as expanding its presence at point-of-sale. AMOREPACIFIC Corporation has sales of $2.9 billion and is the 17th largest beauty company in the world, with 90% of its business coming from Asia. AMOREPACIFIC is one of over 20 brands in the corporation’s portfolio, including Sulwhasoo, LANEIGE and Iope, but Mr. Horowitz declared that AMOREPACIFIC is the “most luxurious and prestigious brand as well as carries the company’s name.” AMOREPACIFIC is a high-tier, premium skincare line, and its focus is on anti-aging and skin rejuvenation. “Through our technology, we have found ways to harness all of the benefits of green tea, which you know as a beverage contains a high percentage of anti-oxidants,” Mr. Horowitz explained. “The anti-oxidant strength is derived from the most potent form of EGCG—making it many times more effective than vitamins C and E—which is extracted and delivered into our cosmetic products. Customers come to us because we have advanced technology and the capacity to deliver on our brand promise.” The company has hundreds of acres of green tea fields off the coast of Korea on Jeju Island. They have a laboratory located in the middle of these green tea fields to research ingredients derived directly from green tea. “The science behind our privately cultivated green tea has produced such great results in our creams, serums and ampoules,” he AMOREPACIFIC’s Bradley Horowitz declared. “There is an expectation for us to bring in newness and innovation,” he said. “One of the most brilliant elements about our line is that we have segmented our products into different collections that enable us to deliver products to specific audiences and retailers. We have the Moisture Bound collection that sells very well at Sephora. The Time Response collection is featured at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.”

icole Ritchie, Creative Director, TV star and style icon, has launched Nicole, a fragrance, which was developed in collaboration with TPR Holdings LLD. It is Ms. Richie’s entry into the beauty category. Ms. Richie was inspired by childhood memories of the uniquely layered scent her mother wore. “I knew exactly what I wanted to do because my mom would combine different oils and lotions, and the blend of scents became very special to me,” she explained. She worked with Fragrance Resources’ Perfumer Steve DeMercado to create Nicole, a soulful fragrance rich in passion and depth that conjures those special moments that result in a lifetime of memories. Nicole embodies Ms. Riche’s style, spirit and wide breadth of creative talents. “It’s the notion that fashion can be easy, comfortable and offer juxtaposition between casual and luxury,” Ms. Richie noted. “From the bottle design to packaging to the fragrance itself, all of the elements work synergistically to result in a scent that is unique and beautiful, classic yet modern,” Mr. DeMercado shared. “Nicole is a feminine fragrance with a touch of sensuality. It’s the perfect blend of Nicole’s past and present.” Nicole opens with a top note of blackberry and Seville orange. Its middle note of golden amber, Moroccan rose, lily of the valley and papyrus blends to a drydown of cashmere, sandalwood, sugared patchouli and vanilla absolute. Ms. Richie worked closely with luxury design expert Dale Brandon Kan to create a bottle and carton that reflected her personal style and Bohemian flair. There are elements of Art Nouveau and vintage design in the carton that are offset by the Art Deco influences of the faceted flacon. The fragrance comes in a 1.7-oz. Eau de Parfum for $55.00, and 3.4 oz., $69.00. They are joined by 6.7oz. sizes of Sensual Body Lotion and Luxurious Bath & Shower Gel, priced at $35.00 and $28.00 respectively.

Her eponymous fragrance reflects her appreciation for traditional classics coupled with modern luxury and sophistication.

“When designing, I always strive to make women look and feel beautiful. Perfume is a more intimate, yet subtle, way of achieving that,” Ms. Acra declared. “A fragrance can create a mood, inspire confidence and, in an instant, transform the way a woman looks and feels. It is truly magical.” Firmenich’s Perfumer Pierre Negrin linked Ms. Acra’s early life in Leba- Reem Acra Eau de Parfum complenon with her current pro- ments the luxurious fashion designs of Reem Acra. fessional life creating fashion with elegant fabrics, luxurious draping and ethereal layers. Mr. Negrin sourced a warm note in his palette to recreate a special scent reminiscent of the cedar wood forests in Lebanon. His use of orange blossom and jasmine are two of the Designer’s personal favorites. “The classic note of amber is a nod to Ms. Acra’s heritage,” Mr. Negrin explained. “Much like her designs, Reem Acra Eau de Parfum is warm, sultry, mysterious and rich. It is both classically elegant and uniquely contemporary.” Reem Acra Eau de Parfum opens on a note of orange blossom, pear and bergamot. Its heart of ginger, jasmine, lily of the valley and peony is based on a note of amber, cedar, patchouli and warm musk. The fragrance is presented in a glass flacon designed by Doug Lloyd of Lloyd & Co. Its luminous glass is embellished with Ms. Acra’s insignia, a dove pattern that reflects regal tradition from the East. The bottle is bordered in gold and topped with an architecturally modern cap, while the red detail on the collar is a tribute to royalty. Its carton is decorated with luminous gold coloring and a matching dove pattern. Reem Acra Eau de Parfum comes in a .25-oz. size for $35.00; 1.7 oz., $90.00; and 3 oz., $125.00. The collection also includes 6.8-oz. sizes of Perfumed Body Lotion and Perfumed Bath and Shower Gel, priced respectively at $50.00 and $40.00, as well as Perfumed Body Cream in a 1-oz. size for $75.00.

ictorinox, the producer of the iconic Swiss Army Knife and luxury fashion accessories and fragrances, has introduced a new fragrance for men. Victorinox Swiss Army Forest fragrance was inspired by the lush forest with its beauty, strength and contrasted landscape. It is a truly masculine scent for men who stick to their ways despite the challenges they face. Victorinox Swiss Army Forest was developed by Firmenich’s Perfumers Fabrice Pellegrin and Jean-Pierre Bethouart. Their idea of a forest scent combines freshness and warmth, energy and intensity, light and shadow. The juice offers an unconventional masculinity oscillating between a burst of freshness and a woody intensity. The fragrance opens on a top note of lemon, juniper and nutmeg. It blends to a middle note, which is a cocktail of green sensations, including clary sage, viola leaves and cedar. The scent then reveals its vibrant and resinous woody character, which evokes the impressive height of the trees, while the earthy undertones are reminiscent of the moist richness of the forest’s soil. The base note is comprised of cypress, Siberian pine and wood moss. Wild cherry wood sourced from forests in Switzerland and Germany was used for the Victorinox Swiss Army Forest’s flacon. The wood comes from sustainable resources and is subject to the stringent forestry laws and certifications. It is cut into planks and dried in a stove for one to three years. They are then delivered to the Möbelfabrik Muothatal, which uses special lasering and milling

r. Frank Lista, M.D., F.R.C.S.C., Plastic Surgeon and Founder/Medial Director of The Plastic Surgery Clinic in Toronto, Canada, has developed Miracle 10®, a line of skincare products with highly effective laboratory-tested ingredients that bring skin to a new level of beauty, clarity and radiance. The Miracle 10 range was created at The Plastic Surgery Clinic to actively combat its patients’ aging skin, fine lines, dullness, hyperpigmentation and acne. Miracle 10 is designed to target the individual needs of each woman’s skin. “Our philosophy at Miracle 10 is that the skin needs to be healthy to be beautiful,” Dr. Lista affirmed. “Just like any other vital organ, the skin needs to be challenged in a gentle, safe and controlled manner. By encouraging cellular turnover and stimulating the synthesis of key building blocks of skin structure, such as collagen, elastin and fibronectin, Miracle 10 delivers beautiful, healthy Dr. Frank Lista skin. You will see the results within 10 hours, 10 days and 10 weeks,” he said. “Based on Dr. Lista’s extensive research and on feedback from his patients, we worked together to develop Miracle 10 Skincare, a highly effective cosmeceutical collection,” explained Ann Marie MacDonald, President of Miracle 10. “We believe every woman should have beautiful, extraordinary skin, and Miracle 10 delivers this. We have developed a loyal following in Canada and believe we can continue to bring the Miracle 10 transformation to women throughout North America.” Miracle 10’s concept is based on tailoring the treatment to match each unique skin type. Each treatment consists of five steps—cleanse, exfoliate, activate, moisturize and treat. The 17 products in the complexion range offer treatments either for normal/maturing skin, acne-prone/oily skin or delicate/dry skin. Normal/maturing skin is characterized by the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, dull skin and hyperpigmentation caused by exposure to the sun’s UVA/UVB rays, pollutants and normal aging. Acne-prone/oily skin is defined by the presence of large pores, blackheads, whiteheads, frequent breakouts and Miracle 10’s Ann Marie MacDonald shininess. Delicate/dry skin generally has a lighter skin tone which is more sensitive and reactive to burns from sun exposure, chemicals, fragrances, dyes and rough fabrics. It is also more prone to skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. The first step in Miracle 10’s routine is performed by either Cleanser I, a gentle, hydrating wash, or Cleanser II, a deep, exfoliating wash. Both pH-correct Cleansers I and II come in a 4.1-oz. size and are priced at $36.00 and $39.00 respectively. Miracle 10 includes three products to activate The Miracle 10 skincare range the skin. AHA Gel I exfoliates to rid the skin of impurities. AHA Cream combines lactic acid and vitamin E to retexture the skin without irritation.

Each is available in a 1.7-oz. size; AHA Gel I is $59.00, AHA Cream, $64.00 and Super C, $92.00. (Continued on page 51) NOV EMB ER 2 0 1 2 /

Les Rives de la Beauté—Paris Design Week—4th Edition During the week of September 19-23 Parisians were witness to an unusual jolt of creative energy zigzagging between the Left and Right Banks. Loosely defined as an exploration of the cultural intersection of perfumery and other artistic expressions, “Les Rives de la Beauté” (“The River Banks of Beauty”) is sometimes referred to as “Paris Design Week.” Whatever you call it, now in its 4th Edition, “Les Rives de la Beauté” has become nothing less than an edgy, week-long happening. Brain-child of Wouter Wiels, and so unique as to be unclassifiable, this year’s “Les Rives de la Beauté” paired perfumery in an ingenuous series of events with other artistic expressions, such as furniture design, cooking, cinematography, massage, photography and a “Cha-Zen” tea ceremony, to name but a few. Thoughtful combinations of small and large players, famous and nonfamous, creative and commercial, added yeastiness to these mixes, so by week’s end, “Les Rives” had far exceeded the sum of its parts. At the culminating event, a conference and round table discussion led by Chandler Burr at the IFM (L’Institut Français de la Mode), passions ran high while dialogue and argument were intense among participants—beauty professionals and members of the general public. The Paris beauty world will never be the same. To be continued…. Alice Etcaetera, the ingenue Designer, and Françoise Caron, the experienced, awardwinning Perfumer (Symrise): two women with a caring and curious eye on each other’s work, and wanting to share their creative sensitivity. Alice imagined a series of three perfume bottles to create different beauty rituals. Françoise responded to this form study with a sensual and powdery fragrance. In the context of the “Les Rives de la Beauté,” Alice, Françoise and Symrise brought the project to fruition. (Photo taken at Alice’s atelier. Lamps are Alice’s creations as well.)

AMOREPACIFIC’s Future Response Age Defense Creme provides longer-lasting skin protection.

AMOREPACIFIC’s Time Response Intensive Skin Renewal Ampoules

“We have incredible products that we are launching this fall, including the Time Response Intensive Skin Renewal Ampoule Set.” Each Time Response Intensive Skin Renewal Ampoule consists of two individual vials that are mixed together just prior to use so they retain maximum efficacy. The emulsion in the syringe is comprised of concentrated Time Response Complex, AMOREPACIFIC’s patented compound of green tea stem cells, green tea EGCG and green tea saponin. The AMOREPACIFIC pump included in the set is placed on an Ampoule to provide a precisely measured dose of each application that glides onto skin and quickly penetrates for maximized anti-aging effects. The Time Response Intensive Skin Renewal Ampoule Set is priced at $550.00 and is exclusive to Neiman Marcus. The Future Response Complex, a proprietary blend of green tea and pine mushroom extract that is combined with AB-12 Complex, a fusion of 12 Asian botanicals, is offered in AMOREPACIFIC’s new Future Response Age Defense Creme. The product is delivered through the new Monocell Technology system, which captures the formula’s most active ingredients in a natural microcapsule that provides greater skin adhesion, deeper ingredient penetration and reduced skin sensitivity. Future NOV EMB ER 2 0 1 2 /

Response Age Defense Creme comes in a 1.7-oz. size for $195.00. It is at select Sephora stores in the US and Canada and the AMOREPACIFIC Beauty Gallery and Spa in New York City. Also new this season is the Luminous Effect collection created to revive the skin’s natural brightness by inhibiting melanin production and reducing existing pigmentation for a more radiant translucent look. AMOREPACIFIC has created the exclusive Meladefying Complex, a proprietary blend of Asian botanicals including milk thistle, ginkgo leaf, orange peel, magnolia and lonicera japonica to inhibit excessive melanin formation and target melasma to form a protective veil on skin. The collection consists of Luminous Effect Brightening Serum in a 1-oz. size for $220 and Luminous Effect Brightening Masque consisting of six single-use sheet masks for $120.00. The collection is now at select Neiman Marcus stores and Bergdorf Goodman as well as at the AMOREPACIFIC Beauty Gallery and Spa. Mr. Horowitz identifies the AMOREPACIFIC customer as someone who really cares about improving their wellness on the inside as well as the outside. “We talk a lot about good health and skin. Our customers are interested in technology and the innovation behind our products. They appreciate the use of our Asian botanicals and the research that powers the products’ performance.” “You have to deliver results,” he affirmed. “If they weren’t seeing results, they wouldn’t return.

BRADLEY HOROWITZ SETS NEW INITIATIVES AT proud of is that our customers are very loyal and committed to our products and come back to repurchase as well as sample new products. We have a spectacular spa in SoHo and are thriving in the marketplace.” To maintain the level of service that is appropriate for AMOREPACIFIC’s luxury skincare, Mr. Horowitz explained that the brand’s Beauty Consultants have a three- to fourday training period. “The trainers then revisit the Beauty Consultants three months after they have begun working for us. Along with support from our training and education department, I have a representative from our marketing department spend a day or two with them as well.” “We want everyone to feel they are aligned with our company and AMOREPACIFIC’s are part of our vision. The more we Luminous Effect connect our Beauty Consultants Brightening Serum with us, the more they feel part of the team and part of the solution. They are not just ‘doing the numbers,’” he said. “What makes us stand out in the cluttered marketplace is the innovation and technology behind our products and the high level of service we provide to the retailers. Our distribution strategy in the US is narrow and deep,” Mr. Horowitz noted. “We have a lot of work to do with our existing partners, and we are focused on winning in-store.” “We sell in Bergdorf Goodman, our flagship AMOREPACIFIC Beauty Gallery and Spa in Manhattan’s SoHo, Neiman Marcus, (which carries Sulwhasoo), Sephora and at Holt Renfrew in Canada,” he noted. “AMOREPACIFIC was introduced in the US ten years ago at Bergdorf Goodman and evolved to Neiman Marcus where the brand is in 27 doors. We have an opportunity to grow to as many as 40 doors with them.” AMOREPACIFIC just opened in March at Nordstrom. He hopes that distribution will expand to more of the retailer’s over 100 stores. The brand is currently in 135 Sephora stores, but he sees the opportunity to grow that distribution further. AMOREPACIFIC is now in two of Holt Renfrew’s seven doors. The brand opened at Sephora in Canada last month, and it is Mr. Horowitz’s plan over the next two to three years to expand into South America, especially Brazil. NOV EMB ER 2 0 1 2 /

AMOREPACIFIC’s Luminous Effect Brightening Masque

The uniqueness of AMOREPACIFIC is translated through its products and how they are delivered through sampling and service. “You can come to one of our stores now where we sample over 50 SKUs of AMOREPACIFIC,” Mr. Horowitz explained. “If people are spending several hundred dollars on one of our products, they want to feel it on their skin before purchase and even sample complementary products, which we can’t do without bricks-and-mortar. However,” he added, “we do have a robust online business.” Mr. Horowitz disclosed that AMOREPACIFIC’s business at Sephora is up over 40%. “We have to make sure that our distribution never runs ahead of our ability to service the over 135 stores where we are currently located and train their Cast Members.” He reported that all of AMOREPACIFIC’s products sold in Sephora carry special sleeves that explain their benefits as a way to support the open-sell format. AMOREPACIFIC has created a new position called the Beauty Creator, who will capture the spirit of the brand and the services that are available in the SoHo spa for customers in the department store environment. “We have a Beauty Creator on the East and West Coasts. Some of their time will be spent with our Beauty Consultants on education, but they are really in the stores to give our customers a chance to have a specialized, spa-like experience.” Mr. Horowitz reports that the customer response to the Beauty Creator has been “unbelievable. Beauty Creator events will be announced through social media and stores, which,” he added, “have been very supportive by sending out direct mail and calling customers.” BF

Ms. Florio sees the challenge of maintaining price control, programming and customer service as consistent across every channel and region. “And I want to preserve the closeness we have with our customers as we take our opportunities online. With the Beauty Advisor’s close connection to the customer, we have access to her, know what she is all about, what she wants and desires even before she herself knows. The question is how we translate the strength of La Prairie, our Beauty Advisors and our experience at counter, to online.” “One way is through customization and personalization. We can know the customer’s identity when she signs in online, what she has purchased in the past and other information that used to be driven in-store. One thing we miss online is the customer’s experience with the products at the counter. We have so much success because our products are high performance, luxurious, sensual and textured. Once you try them, you fall in love.” Ms. Florio credits Asia with spurring the global development of whitening and brightening products as well as BB creams. “Now they are expanding all over the world. Our White Caviar Illuminating Système was developed specifically for Asia, and then we realized that our customers in the US were asking for the same thing.” In defining the client base in Asia, she finds that they want luxury, texture and texture in their products and expect that a product should provide multiple benefits. “In Korea, the skincare ritual is robust, and customers are happy to apply as many as eleven or twelve products.” China and Russia, Ms. Florio believes, offer tremendous opportunities for La Prairie. “We need to increase distribution in those two countries. We just [set up] our own affiliate in Russia.” “In China, they want products that are of top quality and that are exclusive and coveted.” She informed that La Prairie’s installations in China provide a spa experience. “The customer sits across from the Beauty Advisor, where in-depth service protocols are all about taking time with the client.” La Prairie has spas in Korea and Japan and free-standing stores in Hong Kong. “The spa is the most intimate connection you have with a client. It’s a perfect way to provide a high touch experience and to pamper the customer,” she said. Ms. Florio maintains that there must be “global consistency on service, product performance and execution with an emphasis on regional uniqueness.” Consumers’ habits have changed, and they use the Web and social media to get a lot of information. “We need to balance how much information we need to proNOV EMB ER 2 0 1 2 /

vide to a client with how much they actually want to digest.” The role of the Beauty Advisor is “a very big job,” according to Ms. Florio. “It’s the first contact that a customer has in that retail environment, and our goal is to provide the ultimate consumer experience. We can bring them to the counter digitally with ads and promotions, but the experience at the counter must live up to their expectations. The Beauty Advisor must be able to ‘read’ the customer and find out what it is she wants to hear about—what kind of sampling and follow-up.” “There may be regional or cultural differences, but there are universal values. People want to be treated with respect,” Ms. Florio declared. “They want to be thanked for their patronage. If a customer comes to our counter and has made a purchase, we have to show our gratefulness for that investment.” To keep the magic in the La Prairie brand, Ms. Florio noted, “Every day, we recruit, hire and train the best people that we can find to build a brand that has been incredible for 35 years. If we stay true to our customer base, then we will grow as that customer grows. We are backed by Beiersdorf, an amazing company that wants us to maintain our DNA as a company, which offers the best skincare that is sold and serviced in the best level of distribution.”

François Le Gloan The department store, Mr. Le Gloan believes, is where “La Prairie can express itself properly and where the consumer can fully immerse themselves in the brand and our products.” In the US, there are 220 points of sale, and in Latin America about 100 in a selective distribution of perfumeries and some department stores. He perceives La Prairie’s US market as mature, but still sees “several opportunities for growth.” With La Prairie ranking #1 in cosmetics at several points of distribution, Mr. Le Gloan will seek to build more business within La Prairie’s existing network by approaching each bricksand-mortar door as an individual boutique to uncover the full potential within each one. Another area of growth potential for La Prairie is in e-commerce, according to Mr. Le Gloan, whether it is on or on a retailer’s website. “Since we are carried in about 33 states, half of our Internet sales come from states where we don’t have distribution. The Internet is a wonderful platform for customers to discover and research the brand. The traffic on is also up 70%, so we know it is a very powerful tool and we have an ambitious program to further enhance our brand site,” he noted.

downs due to heat and humidity are year-round problems, so Mr. Reyna was quick to showcase the Longwear Foundation. “This is really amazing,” he said. “It lasts 12 hours, is sweat-proof, but it hydrates and feels incredible on your skin.” Marcella Cerabono from Bobbi Brown does the makeup for Christina Cossio. Another hot topic was the BB cream. Beauty magazines are buzzing about these so-called blemish balms or beauty balms, depending on the ingredients. The craze started in Asia, explained Mr. Reyna, and they are now the hot thing in cosmetics as they blend tinted moisturizers with SPF and skincare ingredients. Mr. Reyna explained that Bobbi Brown Cosmetics’ BB helps with many skin issues including acne, oiliness, hydration, aging and more. It comes in five skintone-correct colors.

LANA KRAUTER ON BEAUTY AT SEARS Beauty Fashion asked Lana Krauter, President of Sears Apparel and SVP at Sears Holdings, to give an overview on how the retailer positions beauty, and its plans to grow the category. Beauty Fashion: What is the current positioning of the Sears beauty Department? Are there plans to grow the department? If so, please give a projected plan for the department. Lana Krauter: Beauty Departments are currently found in 103 Sears stores. Due to the popularity of the concept, we are reviewing opportunities for expansion. We are pleased that Cosmetics has given women another reason to shop Sears, complementing our efforts to increase fashion in our stores. BF: Will the product selection be changed to include additional categories? LK: We will maintain our current assortment, focused on four national brands: L’Oréal, Maybelline, CoverGirl and Revlon. Trend colors and nail categories are especially popular among our customers. Expanded square footage in the stores will reflect that demand. BF: Who is the target customer for Sears Beauty Department? Are there plans to broaden that customer base and, if so, how? LK: We have focused on the 24-year-old plus category. We recently added NYX and other color brands to attract the 16-to-24-year-old range. BF: If the Beauty Department undergoes changes, will they be in select or all Sears stores? LK: All concepts are tested in select stores.

“It looks like skin,” he said. “And it really perfects the skin. So you can use it alone, or you can use it under your foundation.” “I love it,” said shopper Maureen Walker. “I came just to see what the new department was like and am leaving with an incredible new product.” Nordstrom Boca Raton is planning another event like this on November 9th and 10th, but even bigger. South Florida shoppers already have their calendars marked! BF

BF: How is the customer assisted in the Beauty Department? If there are Beauty Advisors, are they trained by Sears and/or the vendors? LK: We have one Beauty Coordinator and several Beauty Advisors in all doors to assist our customers. They are trained by both Sears and brand vendors to assist customers in this category. BF: Where is the largest concentration of Sears stores in the US? LK: California, New York, New Jersey and Florida all represent top markets. BF
