The Color Show is an innovative, as well as an interactive way to introduce the entire new range of nail paint from Maybelline New York. Fans can experiment with their nails like never before, and the campaign scores high on engagement right from using Alia Bhatt (as its brand ambassador), to the entire gamut of colors to pick from and the way in which the campaign is using various platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to promote the new range.

Facebook and Twitter have been replete with updates since the launch and the posts and tweets are regular and engaging. The Instagram page too has good photos wherein lies its appeal. Make up is all about looking good and this campaign keeps the focus on the product which is its biggest asset.

The campaign is different from that of its competitors and has worked actively to educate buyers and show them what they have to gain by using the new range of nail paint. It has positioned nail paint as a fashion accessory in a way that no other brand has on the digital medium before. Maybelline has used its own blog to engage with fashion bloggers, which is an interesting move. They have been garnering reviews and inviting beauty bloggers to talk about it.

An offline endeavor at college campuses or retail stores to support the online campaign might be the only thing that could have been added to this initiative.
