To keep pace with the latest online trends, L’Oréal Paris has reinvented its categories. Hair colour flirts with makeup in the Colorista range, for example, which can be found in the makeup aisle in German stores.
Skincare and makeup come together to develop all-in-one complexion products like cushions x and CC creams, which protect, moisturise and even out the skin. The skincare category has also expanded, with the introduction of clay masks for instance. This agility allows the Group to meet the expectations of increasingly selective and demanding consumers.
