Seal Glamour, a collection launched in March, is being discontinued due to disappointing results following a 200-store test. Steve Strickland, senior vice president of marketing and creative services at Wet Seal, said the introduction came at the same time the company was expanding its lingerie department and introducing a catalog. Those two efforts, which have been successful, took the company’s attention off cosmetics. However, the cosmetics program will be reevaluated in the spring and may be brought back, he said.
