Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) presented its 20th Annual Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards, May 16, 2014, in the Grand Ballroom of New York’s Waldorf-Astoria. The gala award luncheon has come to represent the best in beauty, as well as the trends supported by the industry’s most innovative products each year.

“Each year we see the innovation that is coming from both the big and the small companies," said Carlotta Jacobson, president, CEW. "I’m very honored to recognize them.” She cited presenting sponsor The Meredith Corporation and thanked the other sponsors of the 2014 CEW Beauty Awards: Givaudan, Crest and Oral-B 3D White, QVC, U by Kotex, Walgreens, Unilever, Beauty Inc, Arcade Marketing, DSM Personal Care, Yahoo!, Birchbox, RPG, Conair, MaCher, Albéa, Rpr Marketing Communications, Mintel, Sally Hansen, Yes To Inc., KraftWorks, Consultancy Media, Suite K, Raw Media, Proof 7, The Natural Step, WWD, The NPD Group and Ernst & Young.
