Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) Announces Its Finalists

See their latest announcement:

“Finalists were voted on by CEW’s 5,500+ beauty industry members.  Winners will be selected from the finalists by the CEW Board of Governors and will be announced at the CEW Beauty Awards Luncheon Friday, May 17, 2013.


New this year, a special award will be presented by QVC.  CEW is collaborating with QVC to discover the next big beauty product. QVC buyers have selected six finalists. The QVC Beauty Quest winner will be announced at the Beauty Awards Luncheon and will be featured on QVC.


CEW finalists capture the beauty industry’s key trends each year. For example, major advancements were made in the Lip Treatment category this year as companies launched products that deliver both moisture and enduring color. At-home gel nail care was another groundbreaking trend, targeting the many women who flock to the salon to receive long-lasting gel manicures. Skin volumizers dominated the Anti-Aging Mass category, fighting the loss of collagen by addressing the issue with volumizing formulas to plump up skin.

The CEW Beauty Awards Luncheon will be held Friday, May 17, at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Comedian and Actor Mario Cantone will emcee the event again this year.
