Maybelline: a great story!
A story that dates back to 1915, when Mabel Williams a young woman from Chicago, was looking for a way to improve her look. The naturally inventive young woman had the idea of mixing petroleum jelly and coal dust and applying this to her eyelashes and eyebrows. The original beauty hack! Inspired by the potential of this invention, her brother Thomas Lyle Williams founded the Maybell Laboratories, selling mascara via mail-order. In no time, Maybelline products started to sell extremely well across the United States, a craze the company addressed in the ‘30s by launching its cosmetics in stores. Maybelline was born, and its range of legendary products has grown steadily ever since.
In 1971, after a half-century of ongoing innovation, Maybelline revolutionized the cosmetics world by launching the first water-based mascara, Great Lash, in the pink-and-green tube that now has cult status. That mascara went on to become one of the best-selling beauty products of all time and a favourite among celebrities and make-up artists. Today, Maybelline New York is still a worldwide leader in the mascara category thanks to its iconic line Volum' Express. Shortly after its launch in 2010, Volum’ Express: The Falsies reached No. 1 on the list of best-selling mascaras.
Another major innovation emerged in 2004 with the launch of Dream, a range of foundation, blush, bronzer and concealers. Dream Matte Mousse, with its lightweight, airy formula, is today the No. 1 foundation in the world. In 2009, Maybelline New York again revolutionized the complexion category with the launch of its first BB cream in Asia. Since then, millions of women around the world have fallen for the unique formula of Dream Fresh BB 8 in 1.
In the lipstick category that same year, Maybelline New York debuted Color Sensational, covering a wide range of shades. With its creamy texture and bright color, the range is constantly reinventing itself, introducing bold collections in line with current trends.
The year 2009 also marked an important milestone for Maybelline. After Amsterdam, Berlin and Moscow, the brand secured the coveted title of Official Makeup Sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. Since then, Maybelline New York has demonstrated its creativity and know-how on the catwalks, working with fashion designers to develop the next season's beauty trends. Building on the glamour and energy of New York—and on the latest cosmetic innovations and trends, from the catwalk to the street—Maybelline offers women around the world opportunities to express themselves.
Maybelline’s most recent game changers include Color Show nail polish, launched in 2012. The collection’s range of textures, colors, and cutting-edge effects, inspired by New York’s runways, enables all women to easily access the latest trends. Cutting-edge effects, inspired by New York’s runways, enable all women to easily access the latest trends. Then MNY exploded the brow category with the introductions of Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara (2014) and Brow Drama Pomade Crayon (2016). These innovations continue to fuel the brand’s leadership status as the No. 1 mass brow brand worldwide. Doing so for the mascara category is Lash Sensational. Maybelline’s first full-fan-effect volume mascara has been an instant hit—the No. 1 new-mascara launch in the U.S. for 2015. And set to build on Dream’s domination of the foundation market is Fit Me Matte + Poreless, the top-selling Maybelline foundation in the U.S. for 2016. Last but not least, there’s Face Studio Master Contour (sold globally as Master Sculpt), which now ranks as the No. 1 contouring/highlighting product in the U.S. and No. 2 worldwide.
