Hot, Hot, HOT!

Here is a round-up of the beauty news from this week...

The 30 Plus Blog Collective Launches - This week, Hayley from LBQ launched the 30+ blog collective to celebrate those of us in our thirties. With my 30th birthday looming, beauty for this age bracket is very important, not just to me but so many of us. Lots of bloggers are great but are maybe too young to understand the concerns we have. Well done Hayley - excited to see where this goes!

Irene Kim for Estee Lauder - this collaboration was announced this week, as if we didn't need reminding that everything Korean is top of the beauty agenda right now! Irene Kim is a huge personality in South Korea and will be Estee Lauder's Global Beauty Contributor (whatever that is!) and shows Estee Lauder is investing heavily into the Korean market.

So Many Acquisitions - I'm not really liking this trend for the huge beauty companies to be buying up all the brands but it is big news for the week. This week it was announced that Unilever has bought Murad, and Coty has bought a whopping 43 of P&G's brands such as Dolce & Gabbana fragrances, Hugo Boss, Max Factor and Wella. It will be interesting to see how/if the brands change...
