“Consumers don’t just want to buy something, they want a great customer experience that complements the product; And when it comes to make-up products, we know that it could be difficult for some of them to buy it without testing it. As a result, we worked closely with our partner VOIR to develop a customized virtual try-on tool, allowing our consumers to test in-store many shades of our make-up products notably our star products like Rouge G lipsticks, L’Essentiel foundation or the legendary Terracotta, before buying it. Create seamless experiences, removing all friction points during the whole consumer journey is one of our top priorities,” said Jean-Denis Mariani, CDO of Guerlain.
“Nothing helps a woman choosing the perfect lipstick better than trying it on. With Rouge G, Guerlain makes you try all the wide selection of beautiful shades not only physically, but also virtually on iPads in stores and even on your smartphone with VOIR app for the very first time. An innovative and contemporary touch from a great master of make-up tradition.” – Natalia Vodianova, muse of Guerlain said.
