LashDip launches first retail line
LAS VEGAS — LashDip, a semi-permanent lash enhancement line that uses gel-based coating to make lashes lusher, has launched its first retail line.
It is not a lash extension or a strip; rather it is a weightless, gel-based coating that delivers all the perks of mascara but lasts for weeks.
The new 27-piece retail line offers a range of customizable lash accessories to fluttery fanfare into a fashion statement. The easy-on, easy-off formula boosts color quality of water-based mascara and is designed for use over professional LashDip application, naked lashes or LashDip’s strip lashes.
The formula is available in five different colors:
- Perfect aqua teal
- Bright blue
- Lush lavender
- Kelly green
- Indigo black
Additional products include —
LashFit: For the look of long, lush, healthy lashes, this serum is comprised of root nutrients, B vitamins, and natural performance peptides. Inside the flip-top box is a chrome finish bottle with special sponge tip applicator for precise application.
LashPrep: This LashDip original formula was developed for proper and complete cleansing of the lash-line before any application, prepping strip lashes for use or storage, make-up removal, etc. LashVintages: Hand-laid silk lashes on a soft silicone base. Available in six limited edition designs, they reflect the many faces of today’s on-the-go woman. LashVintages are designed to be a life-style accessory used day or night.
LashRely: LashDip abolished the need for messy glues and instead developed a water-based, latex finish adhesive for invisible application for temporary lash products like the LashVintages, LashStandards and LashJewelry.
LashStandards: A collection of strip lashes available in the 12 most popular styles. Formal to casual, this collection is versatile enough to create a soft or dramatic finish for any occasion.
LashJewelry: This petite, compact jewel case holds a convenient, lash embellishment option for an eye-catching effect. Comprised of natural gemstones like hematite, moonstone and citrines, as well as authentic Swarovski Austrian crystals, the LashJewelry collection comes in five color schematics to compliment the lash line.
Wegmans clarification: there will be health coverage for its part-timers
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Wegmans is not ending healthcare benefits for its part-time employees, the supermarket operator announced Thursday in response to a misconstrued headline in the Buffalo News.
"The Buffalo News story was accurate in reporting that benefits would continue to be provided, but eligibility requirements would change," Wegmans stated in a release. "Even so, many outlets reported otherwise."
Wegmans issued the following clarification statement:
“Even though the new healthcare law is requiring some changes, we are not going to do anything that will hurt our employees. Wegmans will continue to offer healthcare benefits for part-time employees, but eligibility requirements will change. This change will not take effect for our existing part-time employees until 2015. We have met one-on-one with each impacted employee to reassure them and to let them know we are going to do everything we can to help them through these changes. Our proudest achievement has been our inclusion in Fortune’s ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ list. We are there because we care deeply about our employees.”
Emdeon expands payment network, builds new St. Louis facility
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A developer of revenue and payment cycle management and clinical information exchange software is expanding its payment network.
Emdeon announced Friday that it would expand the capabilities of the Emdeon Payment Network, a large, automated payment distribution system for the healthcare industry. The expansion includes the recent opening of a new 100,000-sq.-ft. facility in St. Louis dedicated to supporting the network, which currently reaches about 60,000 pharmacies, 500,000 providers, 81,000 dentists, 1,200 hospitals and 300 labs.
"Today’s announcement of our intent to integrate the Simplicity Settlement Services into the Emdeon Payment Network is further evidence of our continued investment in payment solutions," Emdeon EVP payer services Gary Stuart said. "As an established market leader in healthcare payments, Emdeon is best positioned to help payers implement strategic payment solutions designed to eliminate administrative settlement burdens while still offering providers a broad set of options as to how they will be paid."
The company also introduced virtual card services, designed to reduce payment distribution costs and streamline payment processes, and the company said that coupling VCS with Simplicity would provide payers with 1099 reporting, pre-funded virtual card payments, settlement and reconciliation and provider preference-based delivery capabilities. Emdeon is partnering with Echo Health in Simplicity.
