During February, 217 of the brand’s 473 ambassadors mentioned the facial spray collection in their content, generating $1.5 million of the brand’s $2.4 million in earned media value.

Hair-color brand Matrix broke into the ranking for the first time, earning the fifth spot with $3.5 million in earned media value, a 350 percent year-over-year increase.

The event generated $1.3 million and #SoColorCult ranked as the top earned media value-driving hashtag in February.
