Yves Saint Laurent – Facebook-inspired Eye Shadow: Start-up Idea

YSL introduces Facebook-inspired makeup

weekend-reads-facebookLuxury brand Yves Saint Laurent is tapping into social media by creating a Facebook-inspired eye shadow.

 

The four-colour Devoted To Fans #1 palette features Facebook-esque blue, black, white and grey tones. It will be available to fans of the Yves Saint Laurent Fragrances & Beauty Facebook page.

 

Any Facebook fan who buys the new palette will receive special “privileges” such as exclusive information, perks and services through the YSL Facebook feed and in-store.

 

“We are honoured that a prestigious brand such as Yves Saint Laurent resumes Facebook colour codes to launch a unique product,” Facebook France commercial director Damien Vincent says.

 

Popular culture often inspires beauty collaborations – Betty Boop for Lancôme and Miss Piggy for MAC are some other examples.

 

So perhaps there’s an opportunity for a savvy start-up to partner with a major makeup brand as it seeks to grow its digital marketing strategy.
