Cosmetic Brands Breaking the Mould 

NARS on Pinterest

We've noticed some cosmetic brands are getting a bit savvier when it comes to harnessing online tools for their campaigns. Beyonce isn't the only one to have made big launch announcements through social media over the last few months.

Last year Nars jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon and launched a lipstick range through the platform; we thought the way they did this was clever as it provided customers with the ability to accessorize their new lipstick with other fashion items and then to purchase it straight from the platform.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dove goes for 'Real Beauty'

Another notable beauty campaign that caused a stir came from Dove. In fact, it was dubbed the best advertising campaigns of 2013 by Forbes
 

Dove included women who weren't models in their video campaigns, attempting to deliver a different message to the portrayals we're used to from the cosmetic industry.

 This campaign from Dove provides a brilliant example of a successful online video campaign - for a full case study and more information about the planning of the campaign, The Huffington Post details all here.

 

Dermablend on Youtube:  #camoconfessions

This week also saw the launch of the new Dermablend YouTube advertisements.
 
 
 
 
 
Dermablend have made a brave move by highlighting the fact that people DO in fact want make up to cover things up sometimes, and that it doesn't have to be a negative thing to want to hide these things. 
 
We're watching in anticipation as to how these various socal media and video campaigns play out and maybe we'll have a follow up post-campaign write up for you in the future.
