BEST IN BEAUTY: MEET THE CEW BEAUTY INSIDER AWARD WINNERS

06-04-16 | Posted by


Curious about what beauty insiders picked as the best beauty products of 2016? The winners of the prestigious 22nd Annual CEW Beauty Insider Awards are in, and as always, Beautyinthebag editors cast our votes and some of our favorites won. (See the products with an *).

Held at the beautiful Waldorf Astoria in New York City, Tony Award winning actress, Laura Benanti hosted the event, the single beauty awards program in which the winners are determined exclusively by industry insiders. CEW’s more than 6,000 U.S. members whittled the potential winners down to 212 finalists from more than 800 entries. Then the winners were chosen by CEW’s Board of Governors and a select group of beauty industry experts.

“Thousands of beauty products are launched every year. With so many options to choose from, it can be challenging for a shopper to distinguish between them,” says Carlotta Jacobson, President of CEW. “Because these winners are selected by industry insiders, the award seal helps the consumer identify and trust that these are the most innovative products in beauty.” Cosmetic Executive Women, Inc. (CEW) has over 8,000 global members, both men and women, from over 2,250 companies in the beauty and related industries. Based in New York City, CEW has associated organizations in France and the UK.

This is also the second year in a row that CEW, under the direction of Andrea Nagel, Director of Content, has also created a Beauty Insider Awards Digital Magazine to help consumers discover the hottest new products. This digital magazine features both the winning and the finalist products as well as expert tips, trend forecasts, videos and even clickable icons to purchase products from retailer partners.

This summer, there will also be two limited-edition Birchbox Beauty Awards collections featuring finalists that always sell out fast, and in July, QVC will feature select finalist and winning products live on air during a CEW Beauty Awards Show.
