Quick Updates

Amazon already has 20% of its online business under the beauty segment and new reports suggest that it is expanding further with the recent launch of a line of low-priced, private-label personal care products.

Apple is said to be partnering with developers on augmented reality apps so that users can try makeup at the comfort of their home.

In a recent piece of news, it says that “Google partnered with Sephora (the high street makeup retailer), offering Google Home users the opportunity to do everything from book treatments at Sephora to taking beauty quizzes. It is also leveraging the beauty influencer’s community (whose videos on YouTube get millions of views) by partnering with traditional beauty brands like Neutrogena.”

Facebook is also testing with beauty bots, wherein customers can “try on” certain beauty products over Facebook Messenger using augmented reality.

According to recent reports, Chinese retail giant, Alibaba-backed BigBasket is going to launch beauty and wellness as a category on its platform soon.
