L’ORÉAL PARIS INTRODUCES YOUTH CODE L’Oréal Paris has pioneered a new skin care collection called Youth Code, which includes four anti-aging products that are specially formulated with their latest development in gene science. This innovative formulation uses GenActiv Technology, which has been clinically proven to energize and repair gene expression and enhance the skin’s capacity for recovery.
In order to prevent the signs of aging such as laugh lines, dark circles and wrinkles, L’Oréal scientists infused these new products with the GenActiv formulation that includes Biolysat, Adenosine and peptides to make the skin act faster and younger. Biolysat, known as the good bacteria, works to activate the repair gene as it tells the genes to act faster throughout the recovery process at the epidermis level. Adenosine, a molecule that naturally exists in skin’s DNA acts as an anti-wrinkle ingredient by stimulating protein synthesis while producing collagen. Results of a clinical study show that one drop immediately enhances luminosity, one week of use dramatically improves texture and tone, and four weeks of use significantly diminishes the signs of aging, revealing younger-acting skin. The collection includes a 1.0 oz. serum intense, a 1.7 oz. SPF 30 day lotion, a 1.6 oz. day/night cream and a 0.5 oz. eye cream. Each is $24.99 and will be available in January 2011. ■CW

MAKE UP FOR EVER BOUTIQUE OPENs IN SEPHORA Make Up For Ever opened an innovative retail concept within three existing Sephora stores in New York City, Las Vegas and Costa Mesa, California. The new boutiques and studios at Sephora integrate a more extensive product selection, interactive tools, education and artistry into one specially designed retail space. Ranging in size from approximately 600-750 square feet, they have been designed to be reminiscent of a “backstage” e nv i r o n m e n t , complete with studio makeup stations and lighting. In addition to having separate entrances, each one contains more than 1,200 product skus including professional-only items, making them the only retail locations outside of their flagship New York City studio to offer this. The staff of employees has been trained by educators from the Make Up For Ever Academy in Paris to provide knowledgeable expertise on all aspects of the brand. “Our partnership with Make Up For Ever marks an important shift in the retail paradigm for our clients,” said Sharon Rothstein, senior vice
president of marketing for Sephora. The Studio offers a series of oneon-one or group makeup lessons to educate consumers on application techniques and how to achieve specific looks. There is also an Eye Shadow Station at a long communal table for clients to sit and experiment with products before or after they make a purchase. Each space features an interactive touch screen that looks like a computerized white board and can be drawn on directly using fingertips or a special pen. It can be used to create customized makeup designs and face charts that can be emailed directly to the clients. Additionally, stores are equipped with iPads that provide access to how-to videos and links to Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites so consumers can post updates on the go. “At Sephora, we’re committed to providing innovation, freedom, expertise and choice, and the new Make Up For Ever Boutique & Studio is a great example of this,” Rothstein said. ■CW
