WE LOVE THE LOOK: Kylie Cosmetic's Valentine’s Day Collection

Valentine's Collection for Kylie Cosmetics
The Be Mine Valentines Collection by Kylie Jenner has already sold out

Kylie Jenner recently introduced via social media a preview of her upcoming Valentine's Collection for Kylie Cosmetics. The dynamic launch includes a fierce look, thanks to its vibrant packaging.  It features the iconic Kylie lip-drip logo but dazzles in red glitter. Kylie never seems to disappoint her fans.  The Be Mine Valentines Collection has already sold out, just like  past limited editions including the Birthday Collection, Holiday Collection and KoKo Kollection.

What makes us a huge fan of Kylie’s is how marketing and packaging combine to create perfection and stirs up a frenzy where consumers anxiously wait for their parcel to arrive on their doorstep.   Creating a look and establishing a brand blended with the right packaging is essential to a successful product launch.  In Kylie’s case, we think she does an amazing job with her line of cosmetics.  Keep up the flawless look.

Naughty But Rice

Designed by Robot Food | Country: United Kingdom

“Rice pudding is rising in popularity, and to coincide with the trend, The Hain Daniels Group has launched Naughty But Rice, a vibrant new brand with a bit of a twist. The clue’s in the name. Naughty But Rice brings pud lovers all the heart and soul of traditional rice pudding with a deliciously contemporary edge.

Leeds-based brand and design agency, Robot Food, are well-known for their daring challenger approach, and were asked to help create the brand look, feel and packaging. Leaving behind the tired, whimsical category cues of old, the team came up with the strap-line, ‘Rice pudding. But not as you know it’, and got to work on a strikingly indulgent aesthetic that deliberately disregards the category’s moody, rather serious look and feel.”

“At first glance, the pack design is fresh and clean with plenty of pure white space to suggest dairy cues. The other side of the card uses bold contrasting colours to reveal each variant’s ‘naughty’ side and encapsulate the brand’s personality – cerise for Coconut & Raspberry, orange for Salted Caramel, and rich brown for Chocolate Orange.”

The pots themselves are the piece de résistance, the goal to be impactful. True to the brand personality, the pot designs defy convention with vivd, brightly coloured illustrations (with no branding) to represent the dynamic flavours. 

Jeremy Hudson, CEO, The Hain Daniels Group said, “We are delighted with Robot Food’s contribution to the project, the packaging is very different to anything already on shelf. Naughty But Rice is now our most successful new brand launch to date with listings in Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Booths.”

Simon Forster, Creative Director at Robot Food, said, “We distilled the brief down to ‘rice pudding, reinvented’. With such indulgent flavours, we had to push the boat out to tickle contemporary taste buds but rein it in enough to attract the more old-school rice pudding fans too. We think the results strike a pretty tasty balance.”
