NYX Professional Makeup has debuted a first of its kind, multi-platform digital strategy to release their Spring 2021 product collection, including a virtual Triller concert by Diamond-selling singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha and an augmented reality pop-up shop within the platform.
The Snapchat-powered virtual store allows consumers to dive into a fully immersive shopping experience within the Triller app, including virtual try-on and gaming that can be experienced in both places.
As brands continue to navigate through COVID-19, NYX Professional Makeup continues to innovate within the realm of the brand of entertainment, creating exclusive experiences for fans that are both engaging and shoppable. Breaking the digital mold, the Spring 2021 launch strategy boasts three firsts for the brand and its partners: collaborating with both Triller and Snapchat to combine efforts for an end to end shopper experience, first beauty Triller LIVE concert by global superstar Bebe Rexha, and Snapchat's first-ever augmented reality cosmetics pop-up shop.
On December 9, NYX Professional Makeup is the first beauty brand to launch an AR shopping experience on both Snapchat and Triller, leveraging Snap's Camera Kit to make the experience available in Triller's mobile app. This enables Triller users to interact with the custom Snapchat Lens without leaving the Triller platform, and gives consumers another entry point to the virtual store. Users can access the NYX Professional Makeup virtual store environment through a variety of entry points: through the custom branded Snapchat Lens in the Snapchat Lens carousel or in the Triller app, by using Snapchat to scan a Snapcode, and by using Snapchat to scan NYX Professional Makeup's Marsh Mellow Smoothing Primer, part of the brand's Spring 2021 collection.
The free Triller concert, taking place on December 18, at 5 p.m. PST, will feature an electrifying performance starring Bebe Rexha and will stream on Triller LIVE on the @nyxcosmetics page while also streaming simultaneously on Twitch and YouTube. The globally-renowned star, with a combined social media following of nearly 40 million, will showcase NYX Professional Makeup's newest products while entertaining Gen Z and millennial audiences. In addition to the concert, Bebe will guide fans to the NYX Professional Makeup AR shopping experience where they can engage with virtual beauty try-ons, arcade-style digital games, and exclusively explore the newest products. The virtual store will remain open to consumers well into 2021, with quarterly updates featuring future launches.
"As a digital-first beauty brand, we are always looking to surprise and delight our audience with new and exciting experiences," said Stephanie Binette, General Manager of NYX Professional Makeup. "We are experiencing a very dynamic market and our approach is constantly evolving. With this first of its kind cross-platform virtual integration with Triller and Snapchat, we are shaping new digital and shopping experiences, while offering consumer entertainment in an accessible way."
