Glossier, a cosmetics firm founded by Jewish businesswoman and entrepreneur Emily Weis, is expanding its business. Not long after Weiss stepped down as the company’s CEO, Glossier announced its first retail partnership with LVMH-owned Sephora. The Sephora stores will offer Glossier’s popular Boy Brow” and “Cloud Paint” makeup products. And just last week Glossier opened its first store in Washington D.C.
The news comes after Glossier was forced to lay off 80 of its workers in January.
The brand will launch in stores across the U.S. and Canada early in 2023 and be available to shop on Sephora.com and the Sephora App. Which products will be available is yet to be determined.
