Benefit already boasted UK's number one mascara. The new Roller Lash launch had to be just as successful, without cannibalizing its own market share.
Modern women love exploring different looks. Roller Lash, inspired by hair rollers, has super-curling and lifting properties for a sexy, wide-eyed look that epitomizes femininity. Curl's Best Friend, a touring pop-up beauty parlour and bar (yes, a real bar!) put the product front and center and celebrated the launch with irreverent playfulness. At nightfall, the unexpected Noir Bar opened, showcasing a darker, bolder side for Benefits’ They're Real! Mascara.
“We challenged DeVries SLAM to create a PR idea for one of our biggest product launches that could be translated into different marketing disciplines and they did just that with Curl’s Best Friend. Not only did we excite influencers but our sales team were so behind the product that sales were higher that we could have ever anticipated. The campaign has been celebrated internally as the best product launch that Benefit has ever done and as a result, at Benefit’s Global Conference this year, the Benefit UK Marketing team won the highest internal accolade for encompassing brand DNA.”Hannah Webley-Smith
