Success Case Study: L'Oréal Makeup Genius App - How L'Oréal's strategy of personalizing the consumption experience empowers digital consumers

Summary

L'Oréal Makeup Genius app became a hit among Chinese consumers, garnering millions of downloads shortly after its launch. The app played a significant role in driving demand for L'Oréal in the Chinese market. L'Oréal’s app is a trendsetter, paving the way for similar apps in other cosmetic sectors such as hair care and skincare.

In 2014, French cosmetic company, L'Oréal launched the Makeup Genius app, which uses augmented reality technology to allow users to "virtually" apply L'Oréal make-up products to a digital image of themselves. This allows users to see how different shades and mixes would look on them. Once consumers make a choice, the app directs them to online marketplaces to complete the purchase. L'Oréal Makeup Genius app also recommends to consumers products that can suit their needs and personalities.

Scope
  • The L'Oréal Makeup Genius app leverages the high penetration of smartphones, and the growing "selfie culture" and increasing affinity for online shopping among young Chinese women, who represent a lucrative market for international cosmetics products.
  • L'Oréal’s app addressed a major issue with online shopping for make-up, which is that Chinese women consumers are hesitant to purchase cosmetics online as they are unable to try them on as they do in brick-and-mortar stores. The app also augments the time-saving and convenience factor of online shopping.
  • The app collects user data to offer a personalized shopping experience to consumers by means of suggesting products that match their tastes, and sending alerts about new product launches.
  • International cosmetics brands can use such innovative technologies in order to enhance the online shopping experience, and elevate consumer engagement with the brand.
Reasons to Buy
  • Reduce the risk of failure by learning from brands/products that have under-performed: failed innovation can severely impact profit and reputation.
  • Understand the relevant consumer trends and attitudes that drive and support innovation success so you can tap into what is really impacting the industry.
  • Gain a broader appreciation of the fast-moving consumer goods industry by gaining insights from both within and outside of your sector.
  • Access valuable strategic take-outs to help direct future decision-making and inform new product development.
