VIVA, the
biggest selling women’s monthly glossy magazine across the GCC, announced the
winners of the 6th VIVA Beauty Awards,
during a glamorous ceremony held last night (22 May) at the luxurious Fairmont The Palm.
The event was hosted by the charming television presenter Aishwarya
Ajit, and the gorgeous Miss World Australia 2012 Jessica Kahawaty.

The
winners were picked by thousands of passionate beauty consumers, who voted during
the months of April and May to recognize the top brands and products in each of
the 21 categories across skin care, hair care, make-up and fragrance, in the
mass and prestige markets. The voting process was audited throughout by BPA Worldwide
(Business Publications Audit of Circulations).

“We
are delighted to provide a platform that recognises and celebrates the best
beauty brands and products in the region and we are thrilled to have such an impressive
range of brands inducted into our VIVA
Beauty Awards hall of fame 2013”, said Anita Quade, Editor of VIVA magazine.

Over
the years, the VIVA Beauty Awards
badge has become a recognizable and sought-after token for beauty brands, given
its standing for consumers’ choice.

In the prestige market, the highest accolades of the evening were
received by Chanel, which came out a winner
across 3 categories - best anti-aging, lipstick and nail varnish; and Clarins, which scooped the best face moisturiser
and editor's choice cult classic awards.

The night’s other big winners included L'Oreal (best anti-ageing and best mascara) and Bourjois (best lipstick and best nail varnish),
in the mass market.

“We
are also glad to see that the beauty industry is holding strong, and that
consumers in the Middle East are embracing new and innovative products that
have emerged in recent years”, added Quade.

Beauty
and personal care is a thriving market in the Middle East, across colour
cosmetics, hair care, fragrances, skin care and spa, with an average monthly
spend per capita of US$32 (8 times higher than the average global spend).

Created
in 2006, the VIVA Beauty Awards have
gone from strength to strength in boosting awareness about the breadth and
depth of the beauty industry, from high-end prestige brands, to brands found in
convenience and drug stores.

This
year’s VIVA Beauty Awards were
sponsored by L’Oréal Professionnel, Sephora, Inglot, Fiji Water, Karen Millen, So
Famous and Fairmont The Palm Dubai.
