Why Sell Lipstick Online?
In the United States alone, approximately 133.54 million people use lipstick and lipgloss making this niche perfect for those looking to create a makeup store. By 2020, lipstick usage is expected to grow to reach 142.15 million U.S. consumers. With countless colors to choose from, store owners can offer their customers a range of lipstick colors ranging from traditional reds to simple nudes to unique blues. Expanding your store into other beauty related products such as foundations, eye shadows, and makeup brushes isn’t uncommon for online lipstick brands allowing you to reach a wider audience over time.
Due to the vast number of lipstick colors, it’s best to dropship lipsticks and lipglosses instead of wholesaling them. Lipstick color trends change constantly with each season and wholesaling lipstick can leave you with unsold inventory due to trend changes. When you dropship lipsticks and lipglosses, you can add up to 30,000 products to your store allowing you to offer the greatest selection of color choices. It also allows you to expand into other niches without any additional fees. Dropshipping allows you to purchase goods as your customers order them to help prevent unnecessary spending.
At Oberlo there are many distributors that offer makeup products and cosmetics which includes lip makeup and lipsticks. Distributors normally offer supplementary products along with lipsticks such as lip brushes, lip scrubs, lip masks, and lip glosses. The most commonly known types of lipsticks that distributors offer include satin or sheer lipstick, matte lipstick, liquid lipstick, moisturizing lipstick, frosted or pearl lipstick, and lip stains. The most popular color of lipsticks includes shades of red, pink, brown, and beige. However, with lipstick trends evolving there has been a range of unconventional and different lipstick colors that are gaining popularity and have seen an increase in demand such as black, blue, and shades of purple.
Most of the manufacturers of lipstick are located in China (Mainland). On the other hand, the demand of lipstick products is highest in North America, South America, and Western Europe. A single lipstick can take over a dozen different ingredients. The most commonly known products that are used by manufacturers to make lipstick include several waxes such as beeswax, ozokerite, and candelilla wax. Lipstick manufacturers also use several types of oils for the manufacturing process such as olive oil, mineral oil, cocoa butter, lanolin, and petrolatum. Some of the manufacturers, however, tend to opt for vegan, eco-friendly, herbal, or vegetarian raw materials for the production of lipstick.
