Prescriptives Lustre Holiday Color Collection Review and Swatches

Days like today are the days I realize how much I’ll miss Prescriptives when it’s gone for good. Although many of you expressed sadness and outrage over the base makeup items in the collection, I’m actually quite saddened over the limited edition items. I really enjoy special collection releases from Prescriptives and this year’s Lustre Holiday Color Collection is truly brilliant.

Stepping up Holiday with an array of color gift sets, plus the new Holiday Cheek and Eye Palette, and now a full color collection, Prescriptives is going out with a bang.

“The Prescriptives fragrance Calyx, which is a favorite among consumers, will continue to be distributed through Aramis and Designer Fragrances and sold at the fragrance bar in select fine department stores and online beginning February 1st….”

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.
