Beauty buffs won’t be left in the dust when Lilly Pulitzer’s collaboration launches at Target. The high-end brand curated chic shades for spring and summer for Essie and even remixed L’Oréal’s Colour Riche Designer Extraordinnaire lipstick packaging and will debut with the fresh fashions on April 19. Talk about being done up from tip to toe – we can’t wait! [WWD]

JCPenney is upgrading its select salons with help from InStyle with makeovers in 15 locations before rolling out the revamps to the rest in 2016. The collaboration will include new equipment, furniture, and décor for some while others will see new treatments and color schemes to refresh the spaces. As InStyle and StyleWatch editorial director Ariel Foxman said, “Beauty is a huge focus for our readers. They spent over $2.1 billion on beauty products in the past year, equivalent to 9 percent of all spending on beauty in the U.S. We see this partnership as a way to extend our relationship with our consumer in a new, tangible way.” [Racked]

After three years of research and a serious revamp, Biotherm’s new era is nigh. The skincare authority focused on updating its Aquasource range, its hydration-focused facet, starting with its signature ingredient Life Plankton. The new formulas, which launch in February, maintain optimum hydration for at least seven hours even with pollution and poor air quality. With this bitter winter weather, the line will be very necessary! [WWD]

Tom Ford didn’t get the memos about fresh faces for the spring. The designer is surging with serious color for spring, including two new colored mascaras in rich emerald and deep purple.

While we’ve relied on Revitalash to embolden our brows and increase the lushness of our lashes, the brand is focusing on a different follicle. ReGenesis is its first foray into haircare and is designed to strengthen strands and increase volume thanks to flax protein and its proprietary biopeptin complex with a time-released delivery system. Lush locks, here we come! [WWD]
