In the state of the economic environment in 2022, the revenue of the beauty giant Ultra Beauty and the LVMH of Sephora's parent company still hit a new high. However, these two vertical fields have not made Amazon's "posture".
Amazon's 11 categories of cosmetic and personal care in the United States are in obvious online leading positions, and they are still expanding market share. According to the recent e-commerce data released by Euromonitor International, compared with 2022, in the second quarter of 2023, except for hair removal products, Amazon has a considerable market share in all cosmetic categories.

In addition, according to e -commerce data from the EUROMOOR International, the online market share of Ultra Beauty and Sephora in 2022 has declined, and sales in the second quarter of 2023 were almost the same as the same period in 2022. In comparison, Amazon's sales exceeded $ 1 billion, thus gaining the advantage of occupying the online market.
At the same time, the peak season promotion is also one of the reasons for Amazon's success. Amazon received one -third of sales in the fourth quarter in 2022, while Ultra Beauty's fourth -quarter online sales accounted for 27%of the total annual total.
