The colour cosmetics category continues to show strong year-on-year growth, although this is being driven by trends rather than innovation. Indeed, NPD has shown an overall decline since 2014 whilst purchase is up, suggesting that make-up trends continue to encourage women to browse and buy in the sector. Whilst diversity has been a key theme in advertising, there is still a way to go before this is reflected in NPD, which could offer further growth to the sector.
