Are all the beauty and body care products that we use, tested initially on animals? Well, most of them are. But there are some, which are supposedly tested on Bollywood actors! In a recent development, the actor Siddharth Malhotra has endorsed the cosmetics and makeup products brand, MyGlamm. The new LIT collection will be available at MyGlamm.com retail stores besides on Flikart.com and MyGlamm.com
Have you ever heard of a man being signed as the brand ambassador of a line of women’s makeup products? MyGlamm, a renowned brand in women’s makeup products, has precisely done that! They have signed Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra to be the face of their latest collection, LIT.
In a press release announcing the launch and the new brand ambassador, MyGlamm’s Chief Marketing Officer Malaika Mahtaney, says, “We’re excited about having a male actor as the face of the campaign as a way of conveying that while our products are not tested on animals, they may, more often than not, be ‘tested’ on coveted men.”
Reflecting the dazzle and glitter of Bollywood
Siddharth Malhotra, who is excited about this unique campaign, says that he was initially not keen to sign up for the product, but what made him do so, was the campaign’s theme – #TestedOnSID. He explains, “I signed up as a willing guinea pig because I’d any day sign up for a product that is not tested on animals.” With the theme #TestedOnSID, the campaign also tries to draw attention to a cruelty-free philosophy.
Expressing his views on the LIT collection, Malhotra says, “I think LIT’s colors represent today’s young ladies: confident, strong, self-assured, and unafraid to express themselves. I hope their men clear the ‘test’ with flying colors.”
He goes on to add in a media interview that his experience of endorsing a women’s beauty product has changed his perception of the beauty standards maintained by the fairer sex. He points out that it has been a learning experience for him to learn the efforts that go into a women’s makeup, and the art of getting ready.
The LIT collection by MyGlamm was initially launched exclusively on Flipkart.com. But now, in addition to the online market place, it is also available on MyGlamm.com. It also has a presence at the MyGlamm retail stores across India. The collection comprises bold and statement-making lip and eye products, that include Satin Matte lipsticks in 14 shades; pH Lip Balms that adapt to each wearer’s lips, giving them a unique, custom color; and vibrantly-pigmented Matte Lipliner and Eyeliner Pencils, the press release stated.
