Much-loved multicultural beauty brand Carol’s Daughter has been purchased by L’Oreal USA.

“Carol’s Daughter possesses an expertise in the multicultural consumer segment, a rapidly expanding market that represents an important growth opportunity in the beauty industry,” said Frederic Roze, president and CEO of L’Oreal USA. “This acquisition will enable L’Oreal USA to build a new dedicated multicultural beauty division as part of our Consumer Products business, and strengthen the company’s position in this dynamic market.

“L’Oreal has a proven track record of helping established companies achieve their full potential while staying true to the core of the brand and they have an understanding of the future of multicultural beauty. I could not be more proud to begin this next chapter of the Carol’s Daughter brand with them,” said Price in a statement.

The Breakthrough With Boss Lady: A$AP Rocky

In the first of a new series titled The Breakthrough, Simone “Boss Lady” Amelia sat down with A$AP Rocky and an audience of teenagers from the mentor organization she works with, New York Youth At Risk (www.nyyouthatrisk.org) this past weekend in Harlem.

Rocky spoke on his relationship with his mother, where he found strength during the darkest times of his life, the importance of mentors, what he looks for in an ideal partner and more. He also answered questions from the audience.

The Breakthrough series motivates and inspires young people by allowing them to get up close and personal with their favorite artists. It gives the artists an opportunity to “give back” and show them in a positive light, when a majority are often only glorified for the wrong things.
