NEW YORK — L’Oréal Paris is a brand that has been championing inclusivity and the worth of all women for decades; these notions are engrained in its DNA. The brand has grown through the years with longtime spokeswomen like Eva Longoria and Andie MacDowell, and has made headlines in recent years with the appointments of names like Celine Dion, Helen Mirren, and Viola Davis.
L’Oréal Paris is coming to market in a big and unprecedented way with the launch of Age Perfect Cosmetics. While there have been competitive products targeted to the demographic before, this range is the first complete and most extensive for women over 50 with over 100 SKUS, and was tailored uniquely to the woman who believes the beauty category has all but forgotten about her. In fact, the majority of all makeup users are over the age of 50, but the percentage is currently on the decline.
Age Perfect Makeup is the brand’s first complete line designed especially for woman over 50 to look polished and always feel confident because “You’re Worth It.” Each product is designed with the specific needs of the over 50 consumer and formulated with ingredients like vitamins and minerals. Age Perfect Makeup is also inclusive of various skin tones, with 30 shades of foundation to suit a wide range of skin tones so women can feel Age Perfect.
In 2020, L’Oréal Paris will further inclusivity in a big way with the launch of Age Perfect Cosmetics. The range is the brand’s first complete and most extensive for women over with over 100 SKUS, was tailored uniquely to the woman who believes the beauty category has all but forgotten about her. Finally a makeup made just for her.
“Despite losing penetration in the category, the over 50 consumer is less likely to say (versus millennials) that she doesn’t want to apply makeup. It is a key part of her life and her routine and we are proud to offer a new range made just for her. She stopped using makeup because she cannot find the products for her, she does not feel represented or she feels as if the makeup offered to her does no justice to her skin,” said Dr. Rocio Rivera, the brand’s vice president of scientific communications.
“L’Oréal Paris has been championing inclusivity and the worth of all women since its inception, and this new line embraces the same approach. It’s diverse and embraces the beauty of every woman at every age, whatever she decides her makeup routine to be. It is rooted in deep scientific knowledge of the skin, but also in her emotional and functional needs. The products have been meticulously designed for the woman 50+ in complete shade ranges – broadening inclusivity beyond just age or skin color alone,” she concluded.
“As a marketer, I believe it can be easy to think ahead to the next generation versus focusing on those that they already reach,” said Maude Brunschwig, senior vice president of marketing. “The issues arise when brands lose sight of the importance of retaining and innovating for their loyal consumers in favor of catering to and developing for a ‘future’ demographic. L’Oréal has always been a brand that has championed all ages, but we are excited to take that to the next level with a range specifically designed with this consumer in mind. Whether we’re 49, 59, or 69 years… we are Worth It. More now, than ever before,” she added.
