WWD's Beauty Biz Awards

Straight from, here's a list of this year's WWD Beauty Biz Award Winners. In case you have had your eyes on these products, these prestigious awards might give you a push to purchase!

I'm always excited when my WWDBeautyBiz arrives in the mail. If you are a beauty and fashion lover, there's nothing better than a subscription to WWD online. I'm sure it's not too late for Santa to accept an amended wish list!
