Since its launch five(!) years ago, Glossier has given us many gifts in the form of Super serums, a fragrance for You, and dog toys (because, why not?). But with the brand’s latest launch, it has finally delivered the gift I have been wanting for years: the final nail in matte skin’s coffin. I get it — some people want to remove all signs of oiliness from their complexion. But dewy skin, for me, has always felt more fun, more natural, and more lively. If your beauty icon is also a glazed donut then Glossier’s latest launch is for you. As of Monday, October 14, please welcome Futuredew, the brand’s first oil-serum hybrid. Glossier describes the one-ounce bottle as “your skin, but glowier.” If the Glossier aesthetic is bright, natural-looking skin, Futuredew has it distilled down to one product. The product description reads: “You know that dewy sheen you get after you put on all your serums and moisturizers? The one that looks so good but evaporates as soon as you leave the bathroom? We created Futuredew to bottle that effect and make it last.” And in the process they essentially created a new category: aesthetic skin care. The glaz...

14-year-old Louisville entrepreneurs get products featured at 2019 Emmy Awards

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — While many kids are out playing sports or video games with their friends, two young teenage entrepreneurs in Louisville are spending their spare time building a business, and it has now landed them in Hollywood. “We created Ooh La Lemon because we love working together,” co-founder of Ooh La Lemon, Hailey Hertzman said. Operating a lemonade stand as a kid could be pretty simple – squeeze lemons and charge a quarter for a cup, but Hailey and Katie took that idea to the next level. “We both really loved running the lemonade stand so we thought why not run our own business with our own products,” Hertzman said. At 12-years-old, the two won the 2017 National Entrepreneur of the Year Award from Lemonade Day – a program teaching children how to start, own and run their own business. Using their prize money, the girls co-founded Ooh La Lemon. “We sell purses, dog collars, leashes, bow tie sets, kitchen supplies, dish towels, and socks,” Hertzman said.The girls sell hip and trendy lemon-inspired products online and at a pop-up shop. It caught Hollywood’s attention, at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards.”We couldn’t believe it,” Vonder...

China’s top diplomat says Beijing willing to buy more U.S. products

NEW YORK (Reuters) – China’s top diplomat said on Thursday that China was willing to buy more U.S. products, and said trade talks would yield results if both sides “take more enthusiastic measures” to show goodwill and reduce “pessimistic language” in their trade dispute. Wang Yi, China’s state councillor and foreign minister, said in response to questions from Reuters that the Trump administration had shown goodwill by waiving tariffs on many Chinese products. “And so, (on) the Chinese side, we are willing to buy more products that are needed by the Chinese market,” Wang said on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly’s annual gathering of world leaders. “We hope both sides can take more enthusiastic measures, reduce pessimistic language and actions. If everyone does this, talks will not only resume, but will proceed and yield results.” The United States and China are preparing for another round of high-level trade talks in early October in Washington to try to find a way out of their nearly 15-month trade war. CNBC reported on Thursday that the talks are scheduled for Oct. 10-11 in Washington, citing people familiar with the arrangements. The U.S. Trade Repr...

You’ve got the best gaming console of 2019 in your hands, the Nintendo Switch Lite, but now you need the right gear to protect it, enhance it and help it reach its full potential.  One of the best investments you can make for your new Nintendo Switch Lite is a travel case. Not only will it protect your console while you’re on the road, it provides a landing pad for your games, charging cable and headphones.  No matter what kind of case you want, from licensed character totes to understated travel cases that match your Switch Lite’s finish, PowerA has all your officially licensed gear. And while their character cases are fun, my favorite is the Play and Protect Kit. It’s a minimalist solution that protects from scratches and provides a much-needed kickstand for your Switch Lite, the one thing Nintendo eliminated from the design that I really miss. It’s perfect for when you want to u...

TikTok’s new ‘Hashtag Challenge Plus’ lets video viewers shop for products in the app

TikTok, the short-form video platform favored by young adults and teens, has launched a new feature that allows users to shop for products associated with a sponsored Hashtag Challenge, without leaving its app. These sponsored challenges are Gen Z-friendly marketing campaigns where users are prompted to post videos of them using a product — like showing off favorite outfits from Uniqlo or Guess, for example. Or they might participate in some sort of manufactured viral trend, like singing favorite Disney songs ahead of a Disney-themed episode of American Idol. The new e-commerce feature, called Hashtag Challenge Plus, adds a shoppable component to the hashtag. In addition to creating and viewing videos featuring the brand’s sponsored hashtag, a separate tab features an in-app experience where products from the campaign can be purchased within TikTok itself. Last week, Kroger was the first brand to try out the new feature, according to a report from AdWeek. While not exactly a company that exudes youth appeal, Kroger found a way to reach TikTok’s young adult audience through their hashtag campaign. In partnership with four TikTok influencers — Joey Klaasen, Cosette Rinab, Mia Fin...

I’ve had this helmet for over 4 months and can only say it has been great.

I’ve had this helmet for over 4 months and can only say it has been great. The unique design always gets lots of comments and not only does it look smarts it’s also really practical. It’s super lightweight and comes with a handy bag to carry it around in, the lightweight nature of the helmet was one of the main reasons I was drawn to it. I travel quite a lot while riding especially at university where I have to travel all around London on the tubes to go to training and competitions. Another benefit is that the changeable liners. These ensure the helmet fits perfectly, this was a problem I found with some other manufacturers as not all head are the same size so I struggled to find a helmet which fitted. The liners can be removed for washing which keeps the helmet fresh and clean all year round. I really like the safety aspect of this helmet it has certification approval ASTM – PAS015 2011 – KITEMARK – 2015 VG1 01.040.2014 European Directive 89/686/EC which are all up to date with the current regulations for British Show jumping, British Dressage and The British Horse Society. The hat also provides ventilation while riding which comes in useful when riding in ho...

Zacks.com featured highlights include: Hibbett Sports, Universal Forest, Citizens Financial, Westlake and Metlife

Chicago, IL – June 24, 2019 – Stocks in this week’s article are Hibbett Sports Inc. HIBB, Universal Forest Products Inc. UFPI, Citizens Financial Group Inc. CFG, Westlake Chemical Partners LP WLKP and Metlife Inc. MET. A stock’s price-to-sales ratio reflects how much investors are paying for each dollar of revenues generated by the company. If the price-to-sales ratio is 1, it means that investors are paying $1 for every $1 of revenues generated by the company. So, it goes without saying that a stock with a price-to-sales below 1 is a good bargain, as investors need to pay less than a dollar for a dollar’s worth. Thus, a stock with a lower price-to-sales ratio is a more suitable investment than a stock with a high price-to-sales ratio. When considering valuation metrics, price-to-earnings ratio has always been the obvious choice. This is because calculations based on earnings are easy and come in handy. However, price-to-sales has emerged as a convenient tool to determine the value of stocks that are incurring losses or are in an early cycle of development, generating meager or no profits. While a loss-making company with a negative price-to-earnings ratio falls out of in...
