Consumers can now swipe left or right to find their perfect match at Sephora. The beauty retailer is tapping into the success of dating app Tinder to help re-launch its private label brand, Sephora Collection.
In a take on Tinder's functionality, Sephora's new digital site extension "Swipe it, Shop it" will allow users to swipe left or right to either reject or purchase products. Sephora will also become the first beauty brand to place ads on Tinder and the first to leverage Tinder's polling ads in a campaign set for a September launch.
The fall campaign will mark "the biggest single ad buy that Sephora has made for the Sephora Collection brand," noted Deborah Yeh, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Brand at Sephora.
