Magnifying the Brand’s Positive Beauty Message with her Relatability
New York – January 21, 2014 – Revlon, Inc. (NYSE:REV) announced today that Carrie Underwood is joining Almay as a Global Brand Ambassador. Multi-platinum recording artist and performer Underwood is one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry with 18 #1 hit singles, six Grammys and countless award wins. However, she is known as much for her values and accessibility as she is for her accomplishments. Like Almay, she believes in enhancing women’s natural beauty and appreciates that all of the products are made with the highest quality standards making them suitable for women with sensitive skin and eyes.
Underwood will represent the full range of Almay products, including the newest 2014 launches. As the face and voice of Almay, she will appear in global, multimedia campaigns spanning television, print, in-store, digital and social platforms. Underwood’s first campaign will break this week, highlighting her unique style and personality.
“Carrie embraces Almay’s approach to beauty and products. Despite her enormous success, she is still a real girl from Oklahoma at the core and a self-professed makeup junkie who likes to try out new makeup looks in her spare time. Almay makes it easy to play with makeup and helps women look their most beautiful which is why we could not be more excited for her to join the brand,” said Julia Goldin, Global Chief Marketing Officer, Revlon, Inc.
Underwood stated, “Honestly, I could never be associated with a Company I didn’t believe in. I love Almay’s positive approach to beauty because it’s so important to celebrate our natural beauty and enhance what makes us unique. I’m also really impressed by their products, which I use in my daily life and when I’m working. There’s really something for everyone and every occasion – whether you want to get that perfect ‘no-makeup makeup look’ or create a fun, amped up ‘date-night’ smoky eye.”
