Benefit Cosmetics Global Product Launch: Product Unveiling

The program’s grand finale ended with the reason 100+ beauty editors were flown in from around to the world to San Francisco: the press launch for They’re Real Push Up Liner. Introducing this revolutionary new product to guests at the Bently Reserve, DPEM worked with the Benefit Cosmetics creative team to conceptualize a theatrical storyline that was carried through the duration of the unveiling presentation (and inspired by this commercial).

DPEM worked with actors to create a stage program that was exciting and brought the product to life. The program also included presentations by Benefit CEO Jean Andre Rougeot and EVP of Global Marketing Julie Bell, and make-up demos by celebrity make-up artists like Lisa Eldridge and Carole Lasnier. The entire presentation was simultaneously translated into over 10 languages to the international guests wearing ear pieces. Guests were then treated to lunch and interviews with Benefit VIPs and celebrity make-up artists for the remainder of the day.

BIG NEWS: Today is also the official launch of They’re Real Push Up Liner in stores!
