Elsewhere, Patriach Partners, which holds controlling stakes in Stila Cosmetics and Jane Cosmetics, has appointed the investment company's founder Lynn Tilton to head up the two businesses.

Tilton will assume the position of CEO for the two portfolio investment cosmetic businesses, having acquired Stila Cosmetics in April 2009 and Jane Cosmetics September 2009, since when significant investment by Patriach has enabled both businesses grow their footprints significantly.

In her new position, Tilton will oversee all aspects of the daily running of the business for both brands, including sales, operations, finance, marketing, product development and packaging.
