Hereâ€™s a case of life imitating art, or at least, pop culture. Jabot Cosmetics, which plays an integral role in the ongoing story line of CBS daytime soap The Young and the Restless (Y&R), will have an honest to goodness real life debut on HSN in mid-June. Launching at the 2011 Daytime Emmy Awards in Las Vegas on June 19, 2011, Jabot Cosmetics will feature Tracey Bregman, who plays Y&Râ€™s Lauren Fenmore, as the face of the brand. Ms. Bregman will debut the line live on the red carpet.
In case you are not a fan of the show, Maria Bell, producer and head writer, explains the significance of Jabot for Y&R, â€œJabot is the crown jewel cosmetics company in town. Itâ€™s such a huge part of the history of the show and has played a significant role in the inter-family dynamics of the Abbotts, particularly in Jack Abbottâ€™s relationship with his father John. Itâ€™s also a key ingredient to the decades long business rivalry between Jack and fellow titan Victor Newman. Blood has been lost and hearts have been broken over this company.â€
Comprising makeup and skincare, Jabotâ€™s launch lineup includes Overnight Sensation, Camera Ready Color and Red Carpet Collections. Fragrance and body care additions will join the range in late 2011.
