LOS ANGELES, /CNW/ – NYX Professional Makeup announces its first-ever Big Game commercial—starring global icon, Cardi B—debuting on Sunday February 11. The Grammy-award winning artist and longtime fan of NYX secures her first-ever beauty partnership with the campaign.
“NYX is a brand that I’ve used since high school and that’s why it’s so special to partner with them for this campaign,” said Cardi B. “NYX has always made the best, affordable products and that’s why I still use them today. We had a lot of fun making this over-the-top, hilarious commercial and I can’t wait for everyone to see.”
NYX Professional Makeup’s commercial will tackle the traditionally male-dominated football industry with Cardi B and powerful women at the forefront. Featuring the brand’s latest viral product, Duck Plump High Pigment Lip Plumping Gloss, the spot aims to flip the script on male stereotypes with a humorous look at the extreme plumping sensation of the gloss, which will leave audiences laughing.
NYX Professional Makeup, known for their powerhouse partnerships in entertainment, today reveals the campaign teaser featuring Cardi B. The 30 second commercial will then air during the second half of the Big Game, followed by an extended cut on the brand’s social channels.
“NYX Professional Makeup is a brand rooted in entertainment.” said Denee Pearson, Global Brand President. “For our 25th year, we wanted to make history with our first-ever Big Game commercial and our first major celebrity partnership. We’ve gone big, creating the ultimate entertainment content made to be bold, colorful, and fun while celebrating powerful women. There is no better partner than Cardi B— a global icon who is both a major makeup lover and trendsetter. We are excited to bring NYX to the forefront of culture on the ultimate entertainment stage.”
“For many years, we have been building NYX as the brand of entertainment with strategic partnerships at the height of culture,” said Yasmin Dastmalchi, General Manager of NYX Professional Makeup. “With our inaugural Big Game campaign, we are excited to merge beauty and sportstainment as we continue our evolution into an unstoppable brand with no boundaries.”
The fun doesn’t stop there: the brand will reveal an exclusive product launch to support the campaign. On February 1, NYX Professional Makeup, known for their professional grade products at accessible price points, will release the new Duck Plump shade ‘Cherry Spice’ worn by Cardi B in the commercial, exclusive to nyxcosmetics.com and ULTA Beauty.
“As the global lip authority and the #1 gloss brand in America, we are so ducking excited to build on our newest gloss pillar with the exclusive launch of Cherry Spice,” said Denee Pearson.
