Make A Statement in Shades Inspired by the Amazon Original Series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Revlon introduces The Marvelous Super Lustrous Collection, a special limited-edition lipstick collection in collaboration with the award-winning Amazon Original series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Available exclusively on Amazon.com just in time for National Lipstick Month, the collection features two curated sets of high-impact, super moisturizing Super Lustrous Lipstick. Take The Stage Reds features three show-stopping shades in Fire & Ice, Certainly Red, and Cherries in the Snow – which was recommended by Midge in Season 1. Stand-Up Nudes includes three universally flattering nudes for a classic complement to any look with Pink Truffle, Blushing Mauve and Rum Raisin.

From Midge Maisel to Rose Weissman, the women of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel are meticulous about their beauty routines, which include freshly coiffed hair and a seemingly endless array of lip colors complementing their perfectly tailored outfits. Midge’s own bold choices are a hallmark of the show and reflect her trailblazing spirit as she finds her own path to independence in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Revlon’s iconic Fire & Ice campaign debuted around the same time, marking the first time women were encouraged to wear makeup for themselves as a mode of self-expression. It was an impactful cultural moment and complements Revlon’s presence in the show as one of Midge’s favorite beauty brands. What fan can forget her recommendation of Cherries in the Snow and Raven Red to a shopper while browsing the Revlon counter in season 1 and her excitement when she finally lands a job at the prestigious Revlon counter in season 2.

Revlon’s The Marvelous Super Lustrous Collection captures Midge Maisel’s courage and confidence, and embodies the spirit of today’s Revlon Live Boldly…

An $800 million increase in electronics and gadgets spending anticipated for 2019 season
By /

Back-to-school spending is expected to reach $27.8 billion, averaging $519 per student in households buying clothing, supplies, computers and electronics for children in grades K to 12, according to Deloitte’s annual “Back-to-School Survey.”

Spending on electronics and gadgets (smartphones, tablets, wearables) are set to rise $800 million, a 29% increase over 2018. Consumers planning to purchase these items (22%) intend to spend an average of $305 on them.

Most back-to-school purchases will continue to occur in stores (56%), consistent with prior years, but online is gaining ground and set to grab 29% of back-to-school spending, up from 23% last year. The increase reflects a shift online among individuals who were previously undecided between online and in-store.

Overall, use of personal computers for back-to-school shopping is down from 49% in 2018 to 42% of respondents in 2019, while 60% are reaching for their smartphones this year, primarily to visit a retailer’s website (54%), obtain price information (51%) and look for discounts/promotions (51%).

“For the first time, people are telling us they’re just as likely to use a smartphone to make purchases as a laptop or desktop, which previously held the lead when it was time to click the ‘buy’ button,” said Rod Sides, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. retail, wholesale and distribution leader. “Additionally, we continue to see just over half of purchases occurring in the stores, with undecided shoppers gravitating online. Retailers who understand this will position a range of in-store and digital offerings to meet consumers where they are.”

Price remains the most…

Statement from Rochester Hills (MI) Mayor Bryan Barnett

Below is a statement from U.S Conference of Mayors President, Rochester Hills (MI) Mayor Bryan Barnett, on the Trump Administration’s announcement that the 2020 Census will not include a question on citizenship:

“The nation’s mayors were pleased to learn today that the 2020 Census will move forward on time and without the addition of a question on citizenship. An accurate – and timely – Census is essential for the basic operation of cities across the country. As we have long maintained, every person counts.

“The decision to move forward with the 2020 Census now, without the citizenship question, ensures that local funding for essential services, including transit, housing, education and public safety, particularly for our most vulnerable communities, will not suffer from an inaccurate accounting. We look forward to the execution of a 2020 Census that reflects a true picture of cities both large and small.”

The U.S. Conference of Mayors is the official nonpartisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. There are nearly 1,400 such cities in the country today, and each city is represented in the Conference by its chief elected official, the mayor.
