Cosmetics group Warpaint London said it was trading in line with expectations, with the outlook for the rest of the year 'encouraging' and Christmas orders tracking higher.

Retra Holdings, acquired by the company in November, had integrated well and cost savings were as expected, chairman Clive Garston told the company annual general meeting.

'I am particularly pleased to report that our order book for Christmas sales is ahead of last year, both for W7 and the Retra brands,' Garston said.

'We continue to ensure that we are innovative both in our product strategy and routes to market, and we look forward to providing a further update at the time of the release of our interim results in September 2018.'
