Singapore, 25 February 2013 – Her World, SPH Magazines’ flagship title and Singapore’s No. 1 women’s magazine, has revealed 173 winners at Her World Beauty Awards 2013.
Into its 12th year, the Her World Beauty Awards 2013 is its biggest haul yet, with a total of 173 winners across 99 categories such as skincare, makeup and hair care. A total of 914 nominees – including 866 products, 19 advertisements and 19 beauty counters – were evaluated on how they best targeted the concerns and met the needs of customers.
This year, three special awards were also given away:
More than 1000 votes were received from readers online as well as via magazine voting forms to determine the Readers’ Choice winners. Her World’s panel of judges (consisting of editors, beauty writers, leading makeup, hair experts and doctors) were tasked with assessing and selecting the Editors’ Choice Awards.
Started in 2001, Her World Beauty Awards – the first of its kind held by a magazine in Singapore – honours outstanding players in the beauty industry for products that have demonstrated unparalleled superiority. The 2013 awards is a review of products that were launched between October 2011 and September 2012.
Genevieve Jiang, Editor of Her World, said: “The Her World Beauty Awards remains as the most significant recognition in the beauty industry, thanks to strong support from readers and advertisers. Not only were we the first magazine to present awards to recognise the best in the beauty industry, we were also the first to let readers vote for their favourite beauty products.
“This year, we had a record number of winners as more innovative products were introduced in the market – think transversal serums and liquid lipsticks. It’s been a truly exciting year for beauty!”
Diana Lee, General Manager, Fashion & Beauty, SPH Magazines, said: “The Her World Beauty Awards has always been a wonderful platform to recognise and support the best in the beauty industry. We congratulate the winning brands and hope they continue to create innovative and effective products that meet the needs of women in Singapore.”
