Coty Inc. is championing uniqueness, authenticity and "unapologetic" self-expression with its CoverGirl relaunch, officially announced Oct. 10. With its new tagline "I Am What I Makeup," CoverGirl joins a growing number of brands that are distancing themselves from conventional beauty norms and putting each and every consumer at the receiving end of their empowerment messages.
Coty's metamorphosing Clairol brand unveiled washable Color Crave Hair Makeup over the summer, touting the launch as a new category of innovation for consumers seeking healthy, commitment-free shimmer. In an exchange with the Rose Sheet, the brand's VP of Global and US Marketing Anna Vorrias discusses the line's genesis, technical triumphs, promotional strategy and reception to date.
