On stage at Friday’s CEW Beauty Insider Awards luncheon, held at the Waldorf Astoria here in New York, Glamglow founder Shannon Dellimore brought her 7-year-old daughter with her to accept her award for best prestige antiaging skin-care product, the Glamglow Flashmud Brightening Treatment.

“She’s been with us since Glamglow was just an idea,” said Dellimore, who conceived of the company with husband Glenn while pregnant with her daughter. “I hope this is an inspiration to her.”

The juxtaposition of mother and daughter accepting an honor onstage at the 1,200-attendee luncheon was an apt symbol for how the rest of the ceremony panned out, with smaller labels clinching trophies alongside the established behemoths.

“There was a balance of the some of the classics and the [brands] who are really trending,” said CEW president Carlotta Jacobson, who noted that large parent companies like Estée Lauder are now reaping the benefits of some of their recent Indie label acquisitions. “Clinique won a lot of awards, but Glamglow has won the last two years — they also get recognized. It’s not that [just] the big [brands] get the big bounty. That’s a big change.”

Another change this year was the introduction of the Best Beauty App Award, the winner of which was L’Oréal Paris for its Makeup Genius App.

Also new was the Iconic Beauty Award, a consumer choice award honoring quintessential products. Votes were collected in partnership with the subscription database of the Meredith Corporation, a sponsor of this year’s awards. The Super Hero Beauty winner for mass was Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes and for prestige, Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief.

CEW’s more than 6,000 members selected 212 finalists from more than 800 entries. Entries were up 11 percent from last year, and the number of Indie brand entries increased between 30 and 35 percent. There was a 60 percent increase in new companies entering.
