It’s that time of year again. “11.11” is the world’s largest e-commerce event, consistently setting new sales records, with last year reaching US $38.3 billion, double the amount of Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined is back.
This year, to celebrate the e-commerce festival, Maybelline New York is combining virtual reality in a gamified experience with K-pop band Itzy, reinventing the makeup try-on with bespoke experiences for each of the brand’s products.
Partnering with agency Gotham, part of the McCann Worldgroup, Maybelline aims to r”each the fashion-forward trend seekers who use 11.11 to search for the best products and drive awareness to China’s largest e-commerce event,” the agency said.
Maybelline New York worked with director Rigend on the campaign to create a world where next-generation innovation meets Maybelline makeup.
Venturing into the virtual, the campaign turns the Maybelline product into an experience, going beyond functionality and creating an interactive world consumers can immerse themselves in.
The campaign launches today, Friday, November 11, and will run on social and digital across the Chinese e-commerce platform Tmall as well as on Maybelline’s own platforms.
