Supplier News — EcoTools once again is joining forces with actress Alicia Silverstone to introduce for the spring the revamped eco-conscious cosmetic bag and brush collection set dubbed EcoTools by Alicia Silverstone. The collection, which will launch April 2011, will feature three additions and three revised sets, and will be available at Walmart, Target and Walgreens.

The collection includes a deluxe pencil case ($7.99), a hanging valet ($15.99), a four-piece Backstage Vanity brush set ($12.99) and a revised six-piece brush set and bag ($14.99). In addition, two of the most popular cosmetic cases from the original EcoTools by Alicia Silverstone collection have been revamped and retooled with the new floral design.


Black Opal, a line of ethnic skin care and color cosmetics, is launching in January its new Total Coverage spot and scar eraser. The formula is an ultra-pigmented concealer that promises to camouflage blemishes, scars and imperfections to create perfect-looking skin. The transfer-resistant concealer is available in several shades, including Kalahari Sand, Heavenly Honey, Truly Tropez and Nutmeg. The suggested retail price is $8.95 each.


Coty has added Chinese skin care company TJoy to its skin care portfolio, which provides Coty a solid foothold in China through TJoy’s existing distribution channels. The acquisition also gives Coty a platform to expand its research-and-development capabilities. The deal is expected to close in January. Financial terms were not disclosed.
