November 30, -0001

Q1 sales rise 12%

Prestige beauty product sales jumped 12% to $2.6 billion in US department stores for the first quarter of  2013, according to The NPD Group.

“Gains in both skincare and makeup are happening in many areas,  but smaller segments and sub-segments, as well as sets and kits, are making a large impact within both categories. Fragrance continues to be driven by premium offerings, including juices over $100,” said Karen Grant, vice president and global industry analyst, The NPD Group, Inc.

More specifically:
• Fragrance sales (representing 21% of prestige beauty dollars) rose 9%.
• Skin care sales (38%) rose 14%.
• Makeup (41%) rose 13%.
