So, what new partnerships will 2012 and beyond see come to fruition? What new channel will emerge? Will consumers soon be able to touch and smell a product online? Time will tell. But in the meantime, the only constant in beauty distribution is still change and evolution.

FIT Master’s Degree Program white paper The Future Of Beauty: The Future of Retail; CEW Newsmakers Discuss Retail; Today’s Consumers, which includes insights from Macy’s Muriel Gonzalez and Carmen Bauza, vice president beauty and personal care, Walmart Stores; Making the Brand/Consumer Connection (and sale) Online; and Herman Chein’s Building a Beauty Brand Online (January/February 2012) are among the additional explorations of beauty retail available.
