Whiter Image, a leader in the $14 billion teeth whitening industry, is once again in the hands of the stars.  With growing international media coverage in such magazines as New Beauty, US Weekly, SELF, and NAILS among others, it is no surprise Hollywood has discovered the products.

The Whiter Image Chic-Flic TOGO Whitening & Lip Shine Plumper Pen was distributed to some of the biggest stars at the Albuquerque Film Festival as well as the casts of Breaking Bad and Crash.  The Chic-Flic TOGO Whitening & Lip Shine Plumper Pen has proprietary teeth whitener on one side and lip plumper on the other.  The casing is adorned with LED lights and mirrors for easy on-the-go use.

“Albuquerque is the place to film these days. Both Breaking Bad and In Plain Sight are set in and filmed here, while Crash the series is set in L.A., but filmed here. Whiter image was in the VIP Gift bags for the First Annual Albuquerque Film Festival where Bryan Cranston presented Dennis Hopper with a Lifetime Achievement Award,” said Andre West-Harrision, Promotional Partner.

The Albuquerque Film Festival is held by the non-profit organization Film For Change, a group that dedicates itself to the promotion, presentation, and production of socially relevant media.  The Festival not only celebrates film but all of the arts including dancing and painting amongst others.  Some of this year’s attendees were Dennis Hopper, Bryan Cranston, and Giancarlo Esposito among others.

Breaking Bad is one of AMC’s leading shows.  Breaking Bad and the cast are the winners of 8 Emmys, 1 Satellite Award, 3 Writers Guild Awards, 3 Television Critic Association Awards, and many others.  This stellar drama is about a high school chemistry teacher who suffers from a “mid-life crisis” and becomes a criminal.  Filmed in New Mexico, Breaking Bad has become an instant classic.

Featured on the Starz Network, Crash picks up where the 2004 movie left off.  The show tells the story of racial tensions in Los Angeles, but it is filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The cast includes Dennis Hopper, Moran Atias, and Ross McCale among other big names.

Beauty-Industry Sales Start To Look A Little Better

NEW YORK (Dow Jones)–Sales of beauty products are starting to show a glimmer of improvement after a sharp dip during the recession, suggesting consumers may slowly be getting more willing to reach out for these small discretionary purchases.

In recent weeks, several beauty companies have had better-than-expected sales. Estee Lauder Cos. (EL) said in mid-October that sales were better than expected in its fiscal first quarter. Parlux Fragrances Inc. (PARL), which holds the licenses for such brands as Paris Hilton fragrances, announced an 8% rise in second-quarter sales. And Inter Parfums Inc. (IPAR), which distributes perfumes and cosmetics under license from such brands as Burberry and Jimmy Choo, recently announced third-quarter sales above estimates.

“These are data points that would support the view that beauty is getting better,” said Linda Bolton Weiser, an analyst at Caris & Co.

To be sure, there has not been a dramatic rebound in beauty sales so far. And consumers are likely to stay frugal even as global economies rebound, prompting beauty companies to warn that any recovery will be slow. But even small improvements could help the sector.

The beauty industry is “still down, but there has been some improvement in the cosmetics business,” said Karen Grant, an analyst at market research firm NPD Group. “September was one of the best performing months of the year … particularly for skin care.”

According to NPD data, between January and June, skin-care sales were down 6%, makeup was off 7% and fragrances down 10%. There has been some pickup from those declines. From the start of the year through the end of the third quarter, skin care is now down 5%, makeup is down 6%, although fragrance continues to struggle and is down in the double digits. “I see it as some improvement, [but] it’s still a challenging time for the industry,” Grant said.

Sales of beauty products held up well in previous recessions. One theory is that women spend more on small extravagances, like lipstick, in tough times. But that resilience didn’t come through in the latest downturn as sales, particularly in upscale department stores, slumped. Companies exposed to the beauty industry range from the upscale Estee Lauder to Procter & Gamble Co. (PG), which sells such products as Olay face cream and Pantene shampoo. These companies stand to benefit from any pickup in beauty sales.

“I think globally you are seeing some of the growth [in beauty] coming back, particularly in Asia. In the U.S., it’s still a little early to see consistent category growth returning. You are seeing some companies doing better than others,” said Sanford Bernstein analyst Ali Dibadj. Some beauty companies may do better than expected, he said, but they are not yet back to the levels they were at before the recession.

Caris’ Bolton Weiser says the signs of improvement in beauty could “indicate some better things for P&G.” Procter’s more discretionary lines of beauty products – like fragrances – were hurt by the slump in consumer spending. P&G sells premium fragrances through tie-ups with brands like Hugo Boss.

Similarly, direct-seller Avon Products Inc. (AVP) is another potential beneficiary of improvements in beauty. Avon, Estee Lauder and P&G all report earnings in coming days.

Estee Lauder, while disclosing better-than-expected sales, said it is staying cautious in its expectations on consumer spending. Along similar lines, St. Ives lotion and Nexxus hair products maker Alberto-Culver Co. (ACV) has warned that any recovery in consumer spending will be slow, particularly for premium products.

At the beauty counters of a New York City department store, saleswomen recently said they have seen some pickup, but that consumers are still a little tight fisted. “They buy only when they need,” said one saleswoman, adding that women are still not stocking up as much as they used to on these little luxuries.
