#37 Prescriptives to Close and TK Maxx launches Makeup

Oh dear – Another one bites the dust! Just when you think the economy is improving you hear something like this! All over blogosphere is the news that come 31st January 2010 Estee Lauder will be closing down Prescriptives! Apparently the brand was underperforming and Estee Lauder didn’t feel its longevity was viable with the current market environment. For a brand that has been going for the last 30 years, this is so sad and alarming for the industry as a whole.

Now while I wasn’t too keen on their custom blend foundation – I always seemed to be a different colour each time and when I took the foundation home it never really seemed to work with my skin! I was however quite partial to one of their powders… But putting makeup likes and dislikes aside, I do feel very sorry for all the people who will be out of work as a result and wish them all the best. For all you prescriptive lovers out there, I suggest you scuttle over to various counters and stock up before it’s all gone. So it seems the saying is true – just as one door closes a window opens elsewhere. Ok fine, I know it’s not exactly on the same level, but beauty news has it that UK retailer TK Maxx has teamed up with Technic and is set to launch an exclusive make up range this October. The range will offer 14 cosmetics kits that are designed to help women create party looks – and with the kits priced at £4.99 - £5.99 and items such as false lashes and gold and shimmer dust, it could be worth a look.
