NEW YORK, Jan 13 — Beauty junkies with wanderlust take note: Estée Lauder has teamed up with travel online booking site Expedia to launch a contest that will whisk winners to some of the most Instagram-worthy destinations around the world.
The partnership marks a first of its kind for the cosmetic giant and caters to the Millennial market (one of the requirements to enter is to take a selfie), in which influencers and vloggers have become powerful advertising mediums on Instagram.
Over the last few years, the travel industry has crossed over to the beauty and lifestyle community, inviting some of the most influential vloggers and Instagram personalities to stay at their luxury hotels and resorts for free in exchange for an Instagram post or shout-out on their YouTube channel.
Likewise, the beauty world regularly courts influencers with free, all-expense paid media junkets to exotic locales to launch their newest products.
For the Expedia/Estée Lauder contest, customers in the US and Canada can win a trip to one of eight exotic, sun-soaked destinations — Bali, Palm Beach, Santorini, Capri, Tahiti, French Riviera, Morocco and Riviera Maya — with a qualifying purchase.
Entrants must then take a selfie of their best “dream trip destination makeup look” on Instagram with the hashtag#esteexexpediacontest, #flymetobali or #flymetopalmbeach and tag @esteelauder and @Expedia to enter to win.
The contest rolls out to participating retailers include Macy’s, Hudson’s Bay (Canada), Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom until May 13.
