During the launch, it was evident Rimmel London pulled out all the stops, bringing alive London City for One Night Only with a swag party. This big bang launch served as a call-to-action for young Malaysian beauty millennials and members of Generation Z to ditch the ‘classic’ approach to makeup and have the confidence to reinvent the rules of beauty and champion the Power of Self Expression with the launch campaign mantra of Make Up Your Own Rules!

The Malaysian beauty scene has been long overdue for such a refreshing and empowering point of view that encourages fans to embrace who they are and to experiment and make up their own beauty rules and looks. A cutting-edge makeup brand, Rimmel London embodies the quintessential London girl who is authentic, real, bold, confident and expressive.

The brand’s tagline of ‘LIVE THE LONDON LOOK’ simplified into one simple sentence:
The London Look = Whatever you want it to be, no matter where you are in the world

To further highlight and celebrate the edgy London Look vibe, Rimmel introduced a visual signature, the perfect face-framing double L pose, to inspire memorable pictures with a bold attitude.

As such, the launch party that was hosted at custom motorcycle garage, the Gasket Alley marked the climax of a progressive launch campaign that started since February that features an exclusive play party for the top beauty influencers and social media stars, an entire month before the launch to tease makeup enthusiasts!

Matching up to the four iconic looks, up and coming KL’s personalities formed a Rimmel Rebel Squad headed by – Chacha Maembong, Ashley Lau, Nina Khalil, and Rubini Sambanthan and supported by makeup artist to the stars, Noriana the Face designer. The girls were then enlisted to channel their inner London Attitude and pulled off each of their London Looks to perfection in a style film that debuted during the launch party.
