The UK’s most trusted beauty brand1 launches striking new cosmetics campaign
Discovering a new look with make-up, or trying something new can evoke so many different emotions for women. The ambition of this powerful campaign is to allow women to tell their story through their own voice, and encourage other women to experience it too. With no air-brushing or re-touching, the campaign shows the range of positive looks and emotions women can experience; from modern to bold to adventurous.
Aged between 25 and 55, the women featuring in the campaign have been ‘street cast’ from all walks of life, including a charity worker and a nurse; but they have one thing in common, the positive emotions they experience when trying No7 cosmetics.
One of the women, Katie, charity Programme Manager, commented: “I felt quite different after I’d tried a new look - I felt adventurous. Ahead of the shoot I was very curious and didn’t know what to expect, but it’s amazing to try new colours, step out of my natural comfort zone, and embody a bit more of myself and who I am. It was incredible to see the finished look.”
Another woman featuring in the campaign, Ade, banking Compliance Officer, added: “I was hoping to have a wow moment and was looking forward to seeing what make-up can do for me and I wasn’t disappointed. Afterwards, I felt like a different person, amazing – really fantastic. It’s great to see what happens when you apply some colour. I felt in control.”
Elizabeth Fagan, Marketing Director, Boots UK, said: “No7 is a British brand drawing on over 70 years of experience in cosmetics, and today sees the start of a celebration of colour. Our ambition is to represent real women showing how they feel when they try out a new look, be it a slick of lipstick or a sweep of blusher. We want to encourage women to release their inner ‘Ta Dah!’.
“With No7 we’re proud that our customers trust us to listen to them, and to continue to provide them with products that make them look and feel their best. Our hope is that they will be as excited about this campaign as we are.”
The No7 team continues to invest in groundbreaking research and development and our worldwide team are responding to the ever changing needs of its millions of customers every day. From No7’s range of clinically proven anti-ageing serums, to the breakthrough Foundation Match Made Service, No7 customers believe in the power of our products as much as we do. This is why the new campaign is designed to be a genuine representation of how No7 products can make women look and feel.
