2009 CEW Beauty Insider's Choice Awards

Ok, so this post is for the hard core beauty gals out there (and for those who don't know, now you know!)
Every year, the creme de la creme of the beauty world get together for the annual Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) Beauty Insider's Choice Awards. It's like the Golden Globes of the beauty world....kind of a big deal to have that hot pink seal of approval on your product!
According to a statement released by Carlotta Jacobson, CEW President, women are looking for "performance and value" when they buy beauty products.
"With the CEW Beauty Awards, consumers have the advice of more than 4,000 beauty experts to lead them to the best products the industry had to offer."
The event is held yearly at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York; a great venue, but the lunch always consists of a dried up piece of chicken with some type of weird sauce drizzled over it. Needless to say, I never really eat it, but the deserts are always good!
Each product is voted on by the members of CEW (i.e. at least 4,000 professionals). Some interesting tidbits:
-Nearly 550 products were entered by 260 beauty brands
-140 finalists were chosen across 28 categories
-Categories range from makeup to hair care, sun to scent
-Both mass and prestige products were honored
This year, the luncheon was hosted by actor Mario Cantone (best as known for his role as the wedding planner in Sex and the City The Movie). He was a pretty funny host...very loud and even cracked jokes on some of the The Real Housewives of NY who were there! Music artist Shontelle (she's a spokesmodel for VEET and is having an event next week which I'll attend and report back to you on) was also there. One of the best parts about attending the luncheon is that you get a bag full of the winners (i.e. free beauty products!) at the end of the luncheon.
With that said, behold! I give to you the 2009 CEW Beauty Awards winners. Check out www.cew.org for more info!
