MAYBELLINE’S FALL FASHION WEEK LINEUP: Maybelline New York, the official cosmetic sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, announced Thursday which designers it would be supporting backstage for fall 2010. They include a mix of new and well-known designers, such as Vivienne Tam, Custo Barcelona, Carlos Miele, Tracy Reese, Max Azria, Rvca x Erin Wasson, Michael Angel and William Rast. The cosmetics brand, which is owned by L’Oréal USA, is using a makeup team managed by global makeup artist Charlotte Willer.
TRADING PLACES: Communications International Group has acquired business-to-business beauty title Cosmetic News Weekly and the cosmeticnews.com Web site, which were previously owned by Reed Business Information. The deal was inked on Jan. 15. “We felt it complemented our stable,” said Felim O’Brien, chief executive officer of CIG, which already counts Cosmetics International and Cosmetics Product Report among its titles. CosmeticNews Weekly previously was part of Cosmédias, which was incorporated into RBI in November and its international titles shuttered. RBI continues to publish beauty titles Cosmétique Hebdo, Coiffure de Paris and CosmetiqueMag.
