The 10 Most-Googled Beauty Brands of 2017 (and Exactly What to Buy from Them)
2017’s been a major year in the beauty industry, from Rihanna’s huge Fenty Beauty launch to Kylie Jenner’s continuing Kylie Cosmetics global domination. But surprisingly, out of all of the celebrity beauty launches and collaborations this year, only Fenty Beauty made the list of top 10 most Googled brands in 2017.
Based on data acquired by Google from the Google Year In Search (which focused on searches that had the highest spike in traffic over a sustained period in 2017 as compared to 2016), the buzziest beauty brands include a mix of indie and mass market brands that grew to popularity with the help of influencers on Instagram, YouTube and Facebook.
