Why is this work relevant for Integrated?

Beauty is changing. It is no longer just on catwalks or in magazines but in our friends’ selfies or the latest uploads from influencers. Our smartphone screen has become our bathroom mirror. It was therefore crucial for SEPHORA to make its voice be heard and to reaffirm its leading position in this competitive market by giving its own vision of beauty: The Unlimited Power of Beauty. The campaign started with a three-minute film, followed by a massive outdoor campaign across 11 markets, point of sale and display supported by a digital platform and "Unlimited Stories" on social media.


In order to reaffirm its position as an industry leader, SEPHORA launched its new brand positioning through a strong signature which gives a new definition of beauty: THE UNLIMITED POWER OF BEAUTY. More than a signature, SEPHORA believes beauty is a playground where everyone has the power and the right to experiment and create their own definition. It is limitless and gives us the power to make a statement and to love ourselves. Beauty is not a standard, a size or a filter, but a tool of power and confidence.

Describe the creative idea

The film, directed by Jonas Lindstroem, tells the story of a women’s relationship with her reflection throughout her life, giving voice to moments of doubt as well as strength. The intimacy and emotion in each exploration of beauty portrays them as personal evolution and growth at each stage of life. The cover of Kelsey Lu's iconic title "I'm not In Love" was chosen for its emotional power that resonates in everyone. In order to illustrate the range of beauty, UK photographer Nadine Liewere captured prints that represent SEPHORA’s different departments: perfume, make-up, skincare. Each of these 12 prints tells the story of the richness of beauty, regardless of age, gender, physique or style.

Describe the strategy

The campaign was also released digitally thanks to Unlimited Stories, and as an Instagram filter, inviting each of us sharing our power of beauty — fashion models, influencers, clients, advisers, Sephora employees, etc. It was already released via a POS activation that invited the Sephora community to share their most beautiful selfie in message mirrors on their social networks. The initiative was accompanied by partnerships with 5 icons of beauty such as Rihanna, Charlotte Tilbury, Anastasia Soare (ABH), Huda Katten and Maureen Kelly (TARTE).

Describe the execution

The campaign was released in 17 countries (France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Greece, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Czechia, Turkey, Middle East, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria). It was released on TV/cinema, digital, social media, press, OOH, and DOOH, as well as sale points in Europe and the Middle East.
