“This deep collaboration is very relevant for ModiFace since it will allow our AR experiences to live on Facebook and be used by millions of consumers across the world. This is a great new way to discover L’Oréal products and brands through very realistic, engaging and meaningful beauty experiences,” said Parham Aarabi, CEO and founder of ModiFace.
“People want new ways to experience products and services and Facebook’s Augmented Reality platform can make that happen today. By bringing AR into the mainstream L’Oréal and Modiface are reshaping the beauty experience and we're thrilled to see this brought to life on Facebook,” said Will Platt-Higgins, VP of Global Account Partnerships at Facebook.
Lubomira Rochet, L’Oréal Chief Digital Officer said: “Facebook and L’Oréal share the vision that Augmented Reality is becoming key for product and brand discovery and purchase. We are at that magical moment when technologies have matured enough and consumer appetite for using them is growing everywhere. We are very excited about that new step in our long-term partnership with Facebook. One fascinating aspect of this partnership is that it keeps us innovating the beauty user experience. After having adapted our creatives and contents to a mobile-first world it will be very interesting to see how AR is going to change the creative playbook of our industry”.
