Band One Direction launches makeup for fans

BY Antoinette Alexander

 

LONDON — Music group One Direction is launching a range of makeup inspired by, and designed for, its fans.  

Make-Up by One Direction is designed and marketed by Markwins International, in concert with MCI Beauty Limited — a partnership between Markwins International, CBBeauty Limited, and Eden Parfums Limited.

The collections features limited-edition packaging inspired by the band's albums, "Midnight Memories," "Take Me Home" and "Up All Night."  Products feature formulas that should resonate with fans, including LiquiLights Glow Gloss, a UV-reactive gloss that sparkles during the day and glows under black (UV) light after dark.

Band members — Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Harry Styles — are currently engaged in a world stadium tour and hinted at news of the line when Horan posted a photo on Twitter of his nails covered in varnish and his hands "swatched" with makeup.

"Just had a great meeting about 1D make up! It's that good I'm gonna start wearing it myself," tweeted Horan.

The line debuted at Macy's and is expected to expand into other retail venues in the United States and around the world.

PhRMA educates consumers on the ABCs of health coverage and access to prescription medicines with new website

BY Michael Johnsen

 

 
 
WASHINGTON — The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America on Tuesday launched AccessBetterCoverage.org, a new website designed to educate consumers about the ABCs of health coverage and access to prescription medicines.
 
“We know health coverage can be confusing and overwhelming – particularly for those purchasing it for the first time – so we wanted to create a simple, straightforward resource to help demystify the process and equip patients to make coverage decisions that are right for them,” stated PhRMA president and CEO John Castellani. “Our primary goal is to ensure patients have access to the health treatments and services they need.”
 
The new site introduces important resources to help people better understand how health insurance works and what to expect from their coverage, including a series of white board videos explaining basic insurance terms like deductibles, copays and coinsurance, and how formularies and tiers work.
 
While health insurers apply a range of tools to try to manage health care costs, in some cases the tools put a burden on patients and their providers. A new video featured on the site walks through these possible hurdles and the resources at AccessBetterCoverage.org may help patients overcome them.
 
The site also features an interactive glossary of healthcare terms, news updates, research and primers on coverage basics helping consumers better understand this complex piece of the health care system.
