However, anyone who loves makeup would agree that this is some very bad news!
Estee Lauder will close the global wholesale distribution of its Prescriptives brand by the end of January, as the beauty-products company tightens its focus on areas with the best growth potential. As of January 2010, the brand will be completely shut down, but its website will continue until it sells out of the very last bit of inventory.
WHHHYYYY!?!?! I have loved Prescriptives since college. I wear some version of their foundation and concealor every day. I love their bronzers, lip glosses, even the skincare. I remember getting Prescriptives custom foundation for my wedding and thinking how wonderful it was...
Beauty blogs are saying to “stock up” but I don’t think you can stockpile foundation like you would a fine wine. It doesn’t exactly age well…does it? Also, I honestly don't have the funds to buy extras of everything I use; there is so much...basically, all the makeup I use is Prescriptives! I don’t know what to do, but I do know one thing, Estee Lauder is now on my bad list!
Although this kind of news would normally send me into a deep despair, I don't have time to wallow because D and I are getting ready to take a week off for travels and fun. We have been planning this trip for some time, and I am really excited to get away for both a little adventure and relaxation. It will be a quick trip, but my mind is filled with packing lists, itineraries, and plans!
I hope you have a good day!
