Estee Lauder Companies has had conversations about the possible purchase of Charlotte Tilbury, WWD reports -- but says negotiations haven't progressed. Sources say, however, that Charlotte Tilbury is going through an M&A process.
Rumors state that Charlotte Tilbury is hoping for $1.4 billion, but ELC was only offering $1 billion -- and neither company went on the record with comments to WWD.
The UK-based Charlotte Tilbury launched at Sephora last year. The brand's new Glowgasm Limited Edition Face Palette is shown above, left -- in a beautiful shiny gold compact. The product is exclusive to Nordstrom.
