MAKEUP SHAKE-UP: Beauty counters in the U.K. are about to get a new splash of color. French natural makeup brand Une will launch in Boots stores this month, while German color-cosmetics and treatment brand Artdeco is expanding its retail reach in the country. Une, which is a sister brand to the Bourjois makeup line, launched in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain in 2009. Artdeco, meanwhile, is increasing its U.K. presence beyond its network of 500-plus spa and salon doors. The brand entered Hoopers department stores and a Fenwick door in April, one year after it opened in The Garden Pharmacy in London’s Covent Garden.
