Soap opera lovers have had to imagine what skin care and makeup products chemist Ashley Abbott was whipping up in Genoa City, but after making its debut on the popular CBS daytime drama series 20 years ago, the fictional conglomerate Jabot Cosmetics is now a reality.
Launching in light of a recent leadership shakeup at Jabot, beauty giant Fusion Brands has partnered with CBS Consumer Products and Sony Pictures to bring fans the Camera Ready Color, Red Carpet Collection (color cosmetics) and Overnight Sensation Collection (anti-aging treatments).
Tracey E. Bregman, who plays department store heiress Lauren Fenmore, has been tapped as the face of the new line. With a familiar character boasting the grandness of Jabot favorites, we expect to see these goodies fly off the shelves at Fenmore's, spill out of Nikki Newman's handbag while searching for her flask or pop up on Gloria Fisher's boudoir -- the ultimate product placement.
Jabot Cosmetics ($15-$45) are now available on shopjabot.com and hsn.com and will launch July 28 on HSN and in Ulta stores nationwide beginning in October.
