Color Cosmetics: What Consumers Are Talking About via SOFW

18 May 2021

How did Lubrizol become interested in doing an in-depth color cosmetics study?

Makeup is one of the most dynamic categories in social media, with brands being talked about regularly through user-generated content. Therefore, a study applying artificial intelligence to social media conversations about color cosmetics was an invaluable way to gain a deeper understanding and insight into consumer pain points and beauty goals to develop new ingredients and formulations that meet their needs.
