Carma Labs-commissioned survey finds chapped lips affect confidence

BY David Salazar

FRANKLIN, Wisc. — A new Harris Poll survey commissioned by Carma Laboratories, the makers of Carmex, has found that many people tie their confidence to the state of their lips. About 20% of the 2,000 respondents to an online poll said that they feel less self-confident when they have chapped lips. 
 
Beyond self-confidence, almost a quarter say that they don’t feel like they look attractive with chapped lips. Moreover, many (a little less than a quarter) of respondents said that having chapped lips made them less sexy. Those who tie sexiness to the state of their lips were slightly divided among gender lines, with only 13% of men saying their lips affected how sexy they felt, compared to 23% of women. 
 
Though 92% of people surveyed said they acknowledged that something makes their lips chapped, two groups — women and young adults — felt more that chapped lips were a problem. However, those who did point to their lips as a trouble area were also the groups that did the most to alleviate the problem by using products that make their lips softer, with most respondents pointing to lip balm as the best way to do so.

NEW YORK — Coty’s N.Y.C. New York Color has announced the launch of a "Developed with New York Makeup Artists" initiative, a program that supports the brand's mission to deliver innovative, budget-friendly go-to-beauty essentials that have been developed with the expertise of trendy, young New York City-based fashion makeup artists.

"We are thrilled to introduce this program, as it inspires confidence in N.Y.C. New York Color's truly efficacious and dependable products," stated Maylis Joppe, N.Y.C. New York Color global marketing VP. "The results of this initiative reinforce N.Y.C. New York Color's reputation as a credible, cool and trendy makeup brand at an unbeatable price. We are proud that experienced, hands-on New York makeup artists weighed in on the development of our products to help empower the results that we deliver to women."

The test panel was comprised of professional makeup artists based out of the New York City area. The program kicked off with N.Y.C. New York Color inviting the makeup artists to evaluate N.Y.C. New York Color products on themselves and a group of models. They were then asked to provide constructive and professional feedback on the products' level of expert quality. The Coty Testing Institute managed the testing process.

The result was an official "Developed With New York Makeup Artists" stamp of approval sealed on the final products reviewed by the artists.
