    Britain's FTSE off highs as sterling boost softens

    Britain's top share index ended off earlier highs on Friday, as the pound recovered after Donald Trump said he looked forward to finalising a post-Brexit trade deal with Britain. The U.S. President's remarks curbed gains for the FTSE to 0.1 percent. The index, which is heavy on companies with foreign currency revenues, was earlier up as much as 0.8 percent after a Trump interview that appeared to dismiss hopes of a U.S.-British trade deal, depressing the pound.

    The Foxconns of fast beauty propel South Korean cosmetics' success in China

    The difference between the two lines: the first is supplying one of France’s best-known premium cosmetic brands, while the second is serving a South Korean budget firm. It is factories like this that have made South Korea the epicentre of fast beauty, a world in which the time it takes to get a product idea onto store shelves has dropped dramatically, often by years. Some of the major Korean brands they work for have been acquired by global cosmetics companies such as L’Oreal (OREP.PA) and Unilever (ULVR.L), and according to people with direct knowledge of the matter, the manufacturers themselves have received investment offers, some from foreign cosmetics firms.

    Firing fake pineapples, Pernod uses 'influencers' to drive sales

    LONDON/CANNES, France (Reuters) - This spring, Pernod Ricard's (PERP.PA) Malibu Rum paid American singer Nick Jonas to host a competition in Vietnam that began with 33 Instagram stars battling to catch fake pineapples while flying off a giant waterslide into the sea. In one month alone, videos and pictures from the "Malibu Games" were viewed 2.4 billion times online, showing the potential for so-called "influencer marketing" to reach social media-mad consumers that may overlook older, traditional brands. Influencer marketing found early popularity with beauty, fast fashion and fitness brands but has now spread across the spectrum, even though some analysts question whether it actually works.
