LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Maybelline and Seventeen are giving high schoolers everywhere the tools to look like a Prom Queen this spring with leading livestream commerce company talkshoplive.
Through a unique partnership which transcends digital retail, the leading cosmetics company and iconic teen media brand will collaborate with talkshoplive on April 20 for a Gen Z-targeted shoppable livestream showcasing how to create the best beauty looks just in time for Prom season.
Hosted by Celebrity Makeup Artist and Maybelline New York Brand Ambassador Melissa Hernandez, the event will serve as a live beauty how-to video in which all products can be purchased directly within talkshoplive's proprietary livestream technology while Walmart will fulfill all orders. The livestream will be accessible on seventeen.com and Seventeen magazine’s talkshoplive channel both live and as a recorded event after its airing.
Hernandez will teach viewers about on-trend beauty looks built around products featured in Maybelline’s Super Stay collection available in different shades and textures. Viewers can interact in real-time to ask questions while simultaneously making purchases within the livestream platform. The live event will run for approximately 30 minutes on April 20 at 4 p.m. EDT/1 p.m. PDT.
“After two years of canceled events, Prom 2022 will be the first moment for many teens to get glammed up and celebrate together in person,” said Nancy Berger, SVP/Publishing Director and Chief Revenue Officer of the Hearst Youth & Wellness Group. “Livestream shopping delivers an interactive and fun shopping experience for our audience of digitally-savvy Gen Z consumers whose purchasing habits continue to evolve."
"Talkshoplive is so much more than a livestream provider and it’s refreshing that Seventeen, Maybelline New York and Walmart not only realize that but that they also trust us with their iconic brands,” said Bryan Moore, CEO and Co-Founder of talkshoplive. “This partnership, in which a major consumer products company can create shoppable content in tandem with both a retailer and media brand, is just the beginning for what the future of livestream shopping looks like and talkshoplive is committed to leading the way in connecting the retail landscape.”
The Seventeen x Maybelline New York event is a continuation of talkshoplive's growing presence in the beauty and publishing categories. The social selling online network has quickly become a hub for major brands (Mattel, Procter & Gamble), A-list celebrities (Matthew McConaughey, Oprah Winfrey, Dolly Parton, Drew Barrymore), creators and small business owners to host livestream shopping experiences. Mass retailers including Walmart and Best Buy, as well as major media publishers like Buzzfeed and Hearst, are among the many companies actively producing shoppable live content on the platform. Seventeen’s show with Maybelline New York further expands talkshoplive’s presence in the broader retail space of beauty to increase sales conversions and customer loyalty.
Maybelline New York products to be featured in the stream will include: Super Stay® Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Birthday Edition, Super Stay® Ink Crayon Lipstick Birthday Edition, The Colossal® Curl Bounce Washable Mascara, Lash Sensational Sky High™ Washable Mascara, Super Stay® Longwear Liquid Foundation, Super Stay® Longwear Liquid Concealer, TattooStudio® Brow Lift Stick , TattooStudio® Sharpenable Gel Pencil Longwear Eyeliner, Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush, Lasting Fix Banana Powder, City Mini Eyeshadow, City Bronzer and Contour Powder, Facestudio® Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter.
