Prestige skin-care and makeup sales are on the rise, while fragrance remains flat, according to the NPD Group’s most recent Industry Pulse report, which revealed the total prestige beauty category totaled $2.4 billion for the second quarter of 2013, a 2 percent increase over the year before.
According to NPD, growth came predominately from the skin-care sector — representing 36 percent of prestige beauty sales — which was up 4 percent from the same time last year. Color cosmetics, 39 percent of the prestige beauty business, increased 3 percent, while fragrance, 25 percent of prestige beauty, remained even.
