EVER, e.l.f. Cosmetics is dropping its first-ever television commercial on Sunday’s Big Game, February 12th, during the second quarter. e.l.f. is known for its superpowers of bringing high quality products at OMG prices, that are clean, vegan, cruelty free and Fair Trade Certified™. Power Grip Primer, the #1 Primer in the U.S.**, is the stickiest example of e.l.f.’s superpowers.


With 68 million views on TikTok and superfans everywhere, Power Grip Primer is praised for its ability to grip makeup while giving skin a soft-focus effect for a smoother complexion. It’s getting even stickier as it gears up for the biggest media moment in the brand’s 19-year history. Power Grip Primer is teaming up with award-winning actress Jennifer Coolidge to star in e.l.f.’s first television spot. 

“The genesis for this campaign is our COMMUNITY who adore Power Grip Primer. They propelled it to the #1 Primer in the U.S.; coining it ‘Sticky AF’ and ‘makeup glue’,” explained Kory Marchisotto, Chief Marketing Officer, e.l.f. Beauty. “Once we realized the viral power of Power Grip Primer, the entertainment value of the stickiness, and how much fun our community was having with it, we knew it was time to lean in harder than ever before. The stars aligned to bring e.l.f. and Jennifer together at the intersection of pop culture magic and the virality of one of the hottest beauty products.”

“I’ve always been passionate about vegan and cruelty-free beauty. Years ago, I studied makeup artistry and that shaped my relationship with beauty,” shared Jennifer Coolidge. “I adore e.l.f. Cosmetics’ accessible, incredible products. Power Grip Primer works beautifully and makes my skin sticky, glowy, and dewy in the best way possible! I truly enjoyed this collaborative experience with e.l.f.”

In a series of sticky situations, Jennifer takes viewers through her first experience with Power Grip Primer – playing on the sticky, grippy power of Power Grip Primer. Starting today, February 9th, e.l.f. is releasing a teaser of the spot, which will have you LOL as it starts the comedic journey with Jennifer. In this teaser, Jennifer reveals how dewy, glowy, and dolphin-like her skin is with Power Grip Primer. It will leave you thirsting for more – but you’ll need to wait until the Big Game.

The script was co-written by Mike White, award-winning writer, actor, producer, and director, who is known most recently as the creator of HBO’s hit comedy-drama series The White Lotus, and SHADOW, e.l.f. Beauty’s long-term creative marketing and communications agency. SHADOW also developed the creative and lead the casting. Award-winning director Maggie Carey directed the spot and collaborated with director Neal Brennan. The spot was produced by Caviar. The paid media strategy and planning were prepared by performance marketing firm Tinuiti, e.l.f. Beauty’s long-term digital agency of record.

“From the onset, we knew we were going to do something groundbreaking,” said Brian Vaughan, Executive Creative Director, and Partner, SHADOW. “Adding Jennifer to this trifecta, brought the whole moment to life as only she could, and we think the final result is going to stick with e.l.f fans and the entire audience at the game of games.”

The 30-second spot will stream nationally on the Fox Sports app and Fox NOW. It will also air on locally owned and operated FOX networks in the New YorkLos AngelesChicagoDallasPhiladelphiaAtlantaHoustonWashington, D.C., and San Francisco metro areas.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
