The Vintage Cosmetic Co. launches headbands into Wegmans
The Vintage Cosmetic Co. is expanding its reach.
The British brand, best known for creating beauty tools with a look inspired by the 1950s, announced that it will launch three new products at Wegmans.
Vintage-inspired Make-Up Headbands, with an added bow, come in in three varieties — Olive, Ava and Dotty — which will be available at the retailer.
The Olive Make-up Headband, featuring a soft polka dot design, and the Ava Make-up Headband, which is made from black and white striped toweling, will be exclusive to Wegmans.
Dotty, which happens to be one of the brand’s best-selling headbands, is made from soft, plush fabric with a fuchsia color, the company said.
“Our Make-up Headbands are perfect for seasonal gifting, and the two Wegmans exclusive Olive and Ava Make-up Headbands make me think of Audrey Hepburn in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ — they have a classic feel to them, but are also fun and practical at the same time,” Clare Tarry, The Vintage Cosmetic Co.’s co-founder and commercial director, said.
All three headbands feature elasticated bands to ensure one size fits all, while also are comfortable pushing hair out of the user’s face.
The Vintage Cosmetic Co.’s Make-Up Headbands will hit the retailers’ shelves at the end of October.
Spotlight on: Seasonal skin care
With summer wrapping up, it’s time to say goodbye to the beach and the heat and welcome the crisp autumn air and changing colors of the leaves.
That also means, for many, it’s time to refresh that beauty routine a bit, which could mean giving hair a little extra TLC, or removing dirt and grime from the face before applying a new layer of foundation. That’s why Drug Store News gathered together a few products that are sure to help refresh and refuel beauty routines for the fall weather ahead.
Urban Skin Rx’s Purifying 2-in-1 Pumpkin Pore Mask
