Skin Care, Makeup Lead Prestige Sales in Q2

August 20, 2013

Fragrance flattens out, says NPD in recent report.

In US department Stores, prestige beauty products totaled $2.4 billion for the second quarter of 2013, a 2% increase over Q2 2012, according to a recent The NPD Group / NPD BeautyTrends report.

Sales of fragrance, representing 25% of prestige beauty dollars, remained flat. Skin care, representing 36%  of prestige beauty sales, grew 4%, said NPD. Makeup, representing the majority of the prestige beauty business at 39%, grew 3%, the report showed.
               
“Face sets and hair drove the second quarter’s growth in skin care, but despite the increased focus on sun protection, sales of sun-related skincare declined slightly as we entered the summer months. Individual lip and eye products, and sets were the driving force in makeup, as consumers continue to focus on color and eye definition. Thanks to premium offerings and larger juice sizes, the fragrance market held steady,” said Karen Grant, vice president and global industry analyst, The NPD Group, Inc.
