The Lotte Duty Free Star Lounge was transformed into a honey-themed California dream house. It took plenty of design cues from the eyeshadow palette’s warm and golden shades. Following the ‘Spoil me, Honey’ theme, the Lotte Duty Free Star Lounge became an interactive playground full of fun and engaging retail-tainment zones.

The Naked Honey journey began with a ‘dripping honey’ tunnel. It featured motion detection sensors that allowed guests to interact with the dripping honey on the walls through mapping technologies.
Inside, guests played with a ‘Spoiling Honey’ game, where they had to collect 12 eyeshadow swatches in order to win an All Nighter Setting Spray from Urban Decay. Guests were then invited to try out the Naked Honey eyeshadow palette for themselves, with the help of Urban Decay’s team of professional makeup artists.
