Watch Kendall Jenner and Friends "Party" in New Estee Lauder Ad
And by party we mean stare at their iPhones.
Estee Lauder’s latest film ad featuring Kendall Jenner seems to be more a commentary on pop culture and technology — specifically our collective iPhone addictions — than makeup. Although, of course, the spokesmodel looks picture perfect in it, with her bold brows, smoky eyes, nude lips and flawless complexion.
The spot opens with Jenner in an apartment, decorated for a party, and answering the door excitedly when the bell rings, only to sit back on the couch each time a new friend arrives to continue typing away on their iPhone 6 screens, eyes glued to the devices like zombies. Eventually though, low battery messages begin popping up, phones die and the lights go out.
And what saves the party? The beauty brand’s new hydrating Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact ($45), of course, which the sister of Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Kylie flips open and brings her friends to life. After a quick touchup, it’s go time. We’ll have to remember this trick for our next party.
