Prescriptives goes out with one last big hooray!  Many of you emailed and asked me if the Prescriptives Holiday Collection 2009 would be available for purchase.  I wasn’t certain at the time but good news, Nordstrom has it up and available for purchase and I imagine the Prescriptives site and your local counters will launch shortly as well.

Jump for it!

Beauty News: E.L.F. Cosmetics At Target

Beauty news of the day is E.L.F. Cosmetics will soon be available at your local Target.  Interesting news dontcha think?

Starting November 1st E.L.F. Cosmetics will be available at Target on a 3 1/2 foot end cap in the cosmetics section.  The items will be a feature of $1, $3, $5, and $10 E.L.F. offerings in a slick black packaging.

Most of the items available initially will be from the $1 E.L.F. Collection but Spring will feature an updated assortment from the E.L.F. Studio Collection.

I think it’s kinda cool as now you can actually see product rather than look at swatches on the Internet.  I’m a big supporter of online shopping but sometimes I do like to see a product in person before laying my money down.

Are you an E.L.F. fan?

Love the idea of shopping it at your local Target?

Tell the Muse!

Estee Lauder Closes Prescriptives

“In a long-anticipated move, the Este Lauder Cos. Inc. said Thursday it will shut down wholesale distribution of its 30-year-old Prescriptives brand by Jan. 31. Products will continue to be available through the brands Web site for consumers needing replenishment, until supplies run out.

A core component of the Este Lauder Companies corporate strategy is to evaluate, and where possible, turn around underperforming brands with the goal of improving return on investment. After a thorough analysis of the Prescriptives brand, management concluded that the brands long-term business model is no longer viable given the current market environment. We believe that the difficult decision relating to Prescriptives will allow us to redirect our resources to key strategic imperatives where we see the highest growth potential, said Freda.

Whoa….just whoa….

This is unbelievable news. I realize Prescriptives doesn’t have as big a cult following as many other brands but it’s surreal that they are going to close it down completely.

I guess we could have seen this coming since Prescriptives pulled out of Asia not too long ago when it was doing fairly well abroad. Quite an interesting development and honestly even after shutting down Asian counters I really couldn’t foresee this.

I’m quite upset as I really do love the brand as they have some fun LE released.

R.I.P Prescriptives.

We all love you.
