Perfume and make-up leading the way

Within the beauty segment's market share, perfumes and make-up are reported to be driving the sector, representing over 90 percent of consumer interest.

"A make up revolution happened in Brazil in 2012. I believe that soon, make up will become a commodity as common as a toothbrush," ​says Chloé Renard, Brand Manager, Benefit Cosmetics Brazil."

Brazilian consumers rank top 10 in foreign spending
