LONDON, April 20, 2011 - The UK's no.1 cosmetics brand, Rimmel London is the first FMCG beauty
brand to advertise using adaptable custom in-text units. A two-month,
contextual advertising campaign through Vibrant launching from 25 April-mid
June visually dramatises colour options of two key Rimmel London brands:
Sunshimmer Instant Tan make up and its innovative Day 2 Night Mascara.
Vibrant has designed the custom in-text units specifically for this
campaign, allowing the user to "mouse over" the different shades of
RimmelSunshimmer Instant Tan make up, changing the colour of the model's legs
in the ads to correspond accordingly - the ads will appear from 25 April - 25
May, featuring the headline "Get it on, wash it off". One click on the chosen
colour will take the consumer straight through to purchase, putting the
correct shade in the checkout basket.
The second execution, running from 25 May - 25 June isfor Rimmel's Day 2
Night mascara. Its innovative "magic brush" provides two different lash looks
- lengthening for Day and Volumising for a more glamorous night look. The ad
will change as the mouse is scrolled over the custom in-text unit - allowing
the consumer to see the different shades of Mascara as applied, and a close
up view of the product.
Santadip Roy, OMD Digital media agency for Rimmel, said, "We chose
Vibrant for this highly targeted campaign because the versatility of the
in-text custom unit gives the consumer a chance to evaluate and choose the
right colour from the Sunshimmer Instant Tan make up for them; or to view a
product demonstration of the Day 2 Night mascara. Vibrant builds a bespoke
keyword strategy, ensuring the ads will appear in relevant content. Then the
consumer is only one click away from directly buying the product."
Martin Forbes, Senior Vice President, Corporate Operations at Vibrant
says, "This is a great example of how leading advertisers can leverage
contextual technology to integrate their brands into relevant content online,
enabling their customers to discover new innovations in make-up. Rimmel has
taken advantage of custom creative from Vibrant, helping consumers to see the
product variants in a demonstrably, clear way."
