(New York NY) breaks away from the typical photo of a pair of legs and instead uses an extreme close-up of a young woman's face.

Jody Eskenazi senior marketing manager at HUE says the face on the package will differentiate the product from the sea of legs in the hosiery department and make eye contact with the consumer.

The package for age defiance by HUE's line is a 12-pt solid bleached sulfate board offset-printed in six colors plus an aqueous coating by TPC (Chattanooga TN).

"If you think about what people use for age defiance it's face products creams and hair dyes" Eskenazi says. "age defiance by HUE is a product to keep your legs looking younger longer. I think [the package] is original and impactful."

Retailing at $6.50 the hosiery hit department and specialty store shelves in early February.
