During a gala event at the Waldorf=Astoria in New York City on May 1, 2009, Cosmetic Executive Women's (CEW) Beauty Awards honored innovative beauty products. Winners are determined by more than 4,000 professionals working in the field.

“Women don’t want to make buying mistakes. They’re looking for performance and value. With the CEW Beauty Awards, consumers have the advice of more than 4,000 beauty experts to lead them to the best products the industry has to offer,” said Carlotta Jacobson, president, CEW.

Nearly 550 entries were submitted for the 2009 award, with 140 finalists selected across 28 categories—ranging from makeup to hair care, sun to scent. Both mass products (available at the drugstore) and prestige products (available at department and specialty stores) were honored.

In addition to recognizing product innovation, the CEW Beauty Awards announced the winner of the Indie Beauty Award for the brightest new start-up in the world of beauty: NIA 24.
