L’Oréal Paris USA spotlights female digital artists and creators with NFT launch for new lipstick launch
For more than fifty years since the declaration of its emblematic slogan, “Because you are worth it”, L’Oréal Paris supported the individual beauty and intrinsic worth of every woman. From its inclusive product lines to a diverse roster of spokespersons and the causes it champions, women’s empowerment is embedded in the brand’s mission and its very DNA.
In this context, L’Oréal Paris United States commissioned five female artists – Amber VittoriaArina BB, Hueman, Lili Tae, and Puks – to create NFT art inspired by shades of red – six in total – in the new L’Oréal Paris Reds of Worth by Color Riche lipstick range. The program is run in partnership with leading global talent, entertainment and sports company UTA, as part of its digital assets practice.
“Through this program, we want to draw attention to the gender disparity in the NFT space and hope that we can shine a light on the women who are already working in the sector, while attracting more female artists and buyers” , score Maude BrunschwigSenior Vice President Marketing, L’Oreal Paris United States. “As a brand deeply committed to empowerment and inclusion, we are proud to continue our mission to support women and give these artists a global platform to showcase their work.”
The NFT Reds of Worth will be available for auction on the OpenSea market from December 13 – 15 2021, with artists retaining 100% of primary sales. Each NFT will start at a floor price of $1,500. Fifty percent of secondary market sales for up to one year will be donated to support Women of Worth, L’Oréal Paris’ branded philanthropic initiative that recognizes women who are making extraordinary differences in their communities. The artists will also be in conversation with OpenSea, UTA and L’Oréal during a Twitter Spaces on December 14, 2021 at 1:00 PM EST to raise awareness of the auction and share more about their works, the inspiration for the program, and what they have learned as female artists in the NFT space.
“I am so excited and honored to partner with L’Oréal Paris for its NFT program. My “Radical & Free” article is about women who possess our power and is inspired by scientific research that proves that humans emit light in very small amounts due to biochemical reactions,” notes Hueman. “The human body literally shines; we are much more than our sex. There are so many layers below the surface, and they are intricate, shimmering, and pulsating with our own inner light.”
“What I’ve learned after joining the NFT community is that my creations matter. Putting myself in a bigger world can be daunting, but I’ve also been encouraged and encouraged by so many other artists and supporters all over the world”, remarks Lili Pillowcase. “This project is an opportunity to inspire confidence through my works. I want to communicate how confidence contributes to self-worth and how the color red can be the spark to achieve this.”
