Style and Substances

by Syd Briscoe


eos: “Branthem” - 83s

Hip lip balm brand eos bring a little magic to their manufacturing process in this fantastical film. We see the Willy Wonka of chapstick navigate her quirky factory with ease, bringing together ingredients as disparate as shea butter and "rainbow spirit" to create the distinctively-shaped lip lubricants.

With fun production design, nods to the brand's sustainable sources, and a fruity aesthetic, this pastel-hued daydream is bound to appeal to consumers who want to introduce some whimsy to their skincare routine. Some of the actor's facial expressions are a little over the top, but anyone would end up slightly delirious in that workplace.
