Merle Norman Products Win Awards from Top Beauty & Style Publications
Allure and InStyle honor Merle Norman products with best of beauty and editor’s pick awards, reaching millions of followers and subscribers
Merle Norman, the iconic cosmetics franchise, is more relevant than ever – whether it’s making the it list in influential beauty and skincare publications or setting trends on TikTok.
Now, two of the hottest beauty and style publications, InStyle and Allure, recently recognized Merle Norman products in their awards round ups.
Founded by pioneering businesswoman Merle Norman from her kitchen, our products have been manufactured in the same Westchester, California, plant built by Norman herself in 1952. We’re known for reasonably priced prestige products made with the very best ingredients and the latest technology. And we’re more than makeup, offering a full line full of skin care products for all ages, complexions, and skin types.
Allure Magazine recognized our Soft Touch Eye Pencil in their 2020 Best of Beauty Award category for Best Color Range. Our eye pencil was chosen from more than 10,000 products reviewed for the prestigious award. Allure will be promoting the awards to their 14 million plus social media followers and subscribers. InStyle, which has more than 9 million social media followers and subscribers, recognized Merle Norman’s Ultra Rich Hand Cream in the magazine’s 2020 Reader’s Choice Award in the Editor’s Pick category.
For entrepreneurs who are passionate about the skincare and beauty industry and want to be that go-to expert in their community, Merle Norman is a rewarding and potentially profitable business. Our owners enjoy being a part of a legacy brand that is capable of adapting and changing during uncertain times, and it is a testament to the strength of our business model.
Our products have been setting the bar on ingenuity and quality since 1931
While we pride ourselves as a legacy brand, we have been setting the bar on ingenuity and quality since 1931. Take for example today’s buzzword ingredient – Hyaluronic Acid. Merle Norman began using it in 1986 with our award winning and biggest seller, Energizing Concentrate! Today, we continue to harness the latest trends and technology in beauty and skincare.
Skin care and makeup never goes out of style, especially during uncertain times when self-care is a hot topic. Consumers want brands that are based on integrity and quality. It’s no wonder that consumers from all generations continue to turn to our products as ones, both setting the bar high and driving trends.
“Our products are always going to stand the test of time. We invest in brand new technology and our products are on par or on better or better than the most prestigious and expensive brands out there,” says Travis Richards, Board of Director and Executive at Merle Norman. “Today’s consumers look to blogs, YouTubers, and people they’ve never met for advice for their beauty. Our owners and beauty consultants are the best influencers in the industry. Once they come into a Merle Norman and they have a true and honest experience with exceptional products we’ll have the loyalty of that customer and their friends for life.”
The recession resistant beauty industry was booming at $532 billion before the global pandemic, and demand is expected to continue to rise. Merle Norman continues to build its fan base and garner industry recognition.
