Mintel Looks Ahead In Beauty, Highlights Its Mixologiste Trend F

This will add a new sense of excitement to the market and will drive innovation in the year ahead. Mintels exclusive consumer research highlights the popularity of multifunctional makeup in the U.S., with as many as 70% of U.S. female consumers expressing an interest in multifunctional lip products, and 65% showing interest in multifunctional facial coverage products, for example those which combine the benefits of foundation and concealer. And while saving time and cost are highlighted as the benefits of these products, the research shows how time-poor U.S. consumers perceive time saving (68%) to be a greater benefit than reduced costs (63%). In China, almost half (46%) of Chinese makeup users express an interest in trying new products with multifunctionality (such as 2-in-1 eye shadow and blusher), while almost one in three (29%) agree that multifunctional products (e.g., BB cream) perform as well as products designed for single purpose. Around four in ten (37%) say they like products that have cosmetic benefits as well as care for their skin. Reduced cost is seen to be a benefit for a third (34%) of Chinese consumers who say that buying multifunctional products is more economical than buying products separately. But while multifunctionality is popular in the U.S. and China, it is not yet as popular in the U.K., where just a quarter (25%) of women say they are interested in products which have cosmetic benefits as as well as care for the skin, such as BB cream and tinted lip balm. <br>visit
