This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet
Coty Inc. is championing uniqueness, authenticity and "unapologetic" self-expression with its CoverGirl relaunch, officially announced Oct. 10. With its new tagline "I Am What I Makeup," CoverGirl joins a growing number of brands that are distancing themselves from conventional beauty norms and putting each and every consumer at the receiving end of their empowerment messages.

During Coty’s recent strategic update webcast, CEO Sue Nabi discussed what went wrong at CoverGirl in recent years and how the brand is reembracing its heritage to deliver “clean beauty to all.”
Coty’s improved second-quarter results, and Pierre Laubies’ remarks in his first earnings call as the company’s chief exec, charmed the investment community, though a detailed strategy from management – including its plan for the ailing Consumer Beauty unit – is still to come.
Revlon responds to continued net losses with a cost-cutting plan, which will include headcount reductions; Coty is optimistic that CoverGirl momentum, including the launch of a flagship store in Times Square, will help buoy its struggling Consumer Beauty business. Meanwhile, L’Oreal/La Roche-Posay introduces a wearable UV sensor, and IFF-LMR promotes its vegan-certified natural extracts.
