Says Jane Iredale, president and founder of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, "I love to travel, and when I do I travel light. That's why I created the refillable brush for our mineral powders. It's so simple to use, giving easy, exceptional coverage and with a great brush too. Happy trails!" IN THE NEWS Launchtime! Famed for its seaweed-packed skincare, Repêchage ( has launched a new anti-aging body line. Comprising five products—Foaming Seaweed Bath, Body Soufflé, Nutrí Créme, Nutrí Oil and Body Contour Cream—the Vita Cura Triple Action Body Collection features rich formulations and phyto actives the company says are designed to "transform dull skin for a smoother, firmer and more hydrated feel." Key ingredients include: African mafura oil, coconut oil, carrot oil, shea butter, aloe vera, vanilla and rooibos essence, as well as the brand's signature French algae. Says CEO and founder, Lydia Sarfati, "We launched these new products to focus on anti-aging from the neck down.

Founded in 1942 and still family owned, professional beauty product distributor Spilo Worldwide ( has given five of its signature brands a makeover. Among them are waxing line Melting Pot, which features a new logo and simplified method of use in the form of "3 Steps to Smooth" instructions. New products include a 5 Minute At-home Wax Kit, while waxes, warmers, strips, sticks and accessories are among the updated items. Longtime green pioneer Aveda (aveda .com) recently scooped the prestigious 2014 Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) Eco Beauty Award, established to encourage brands within the beauty industry to take steps toward sustainability. It's the first time the award has been given in recognition of a brand, rather than a product. Aveda was acknowledged for its longtime sustainability leadership and pioneering role in the industry and, specifically, for its achievements such as being: • The first privately owned company to sign (in 1989) the Ceres Principles—a nonprofit organization mobilizing business leadership on climate change, water scarcity and other sustainability challenges • The world's first beauty company to manufacture with 100% wind power in its primary facility • The first beauty company to receive a Cradle to Cradle charter for its commitment to sustainable products, packaging and production. Currently seven products hold Cradle to Cradle certification, including the trademarked Invati Solutions for Thinning Hair. In addition, since 1999, Aveda's annual Earth Month campaign, held each April, has raised more than $32 million to support environmental projects around the world. "We are honored to be recognized by CEW with its Eco Beauty Award for the sustainability efforts of the Aveda brand," says Marianne Knutson, senior vice president of global marketing. "At Aveda, we believe there is no responsible alternative to doing business than through the pursuit of environmental sustainability, which is at the center of the Aveda Mission and guides every decision we make."

The shades, which run the gamut from a vivid violet crème (Givers Theme) to a baby pink crème (Friends Forever, Right?) via a black with gold and amber glitter (Boundary of Memory), are designed around the movie's key moments and characters.
