NEW YORK -- Maybelline is hoping that since oily skin doesn't necessarily disappear at the age of 20, the core consumer group of its Shine Free cosmetics line won't either. The company is out to broaden the brand's appeal from teenagers to young women in their 30s with its first TV spot for Shine Free in over three years.
The campaign will make its debut next week on national and cable television. Follow-up print ads will break in August. Both campaigns will run intermittently through the end of the year. "When we first launched the Shine Free line in 1983, we positioned it as just a brand for teens," said Catherine Wills, executive vice president of marketing for Maybelline. "But recently we did some consumer research and found that 62 percent of our users are over 25. Oily skin and blemishes are common complaints that don't stop when you are out of your teenage years. We think we should be reaching the other women who have this problem as well."
The company is now looking for Shine Free to attract a core consumer group of women aged 12 to 34, Wills said. According to Wills, the company is spending $4.45 million to advertise Shine Free this year, a 79 percent increase over year's budget.
Maybelline executives are expecting the new campaign to boost Shine Free sales by 12 to 13 percent this year to $18 million to $20 million.
The ads will feature Christy Turlington, who also appears in ads for Maybelline's classic brand, and her mother, Liz.
The campaign is entitled, "Nothing can embarrass you more than your mother, except..." The exceptions are oily skin and blemishes.
Shine Free's previous campaign featured a young, fresh-faced model with her boyfriend. The styling and the feel of the ad were much less sophisticated than the new treatment, Wills said.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
