Isentia releases beauty trends study on 2017 China top beauty brands on digital media

All-round analysis and different levels of insights are vital for successful strategy planning

Isentia’s China team recently released the “2017 Q2 China beauty trends study”. The report shows that during the second quarter of 2017 the organic buzz in the beauty sector in China’s mainstream social media reached 48 million posts, 17% more than the first quarter, and the online discussion related to makeup/cosmetic products jumped four times compared with the previous quarter.

Social media has become one of the primary channels for consumers to obtain beauty and makeup information. According to NPD, 92% of makeup users get information on products from YouTube videos by online influencers. Social media marketing is the largest shift we have seen in the beauty industry in terms of driving growth. The trends study by Isentia ranked the digital presence of 51 well-known beauty brands by aggregating and filtering the organic buzz from China’s major social media, including Weibo, Wechat, Q&A, blogs, forums, website and apps such as “The little Red Book” and summarized the most-recent five major skin care and makeup trends in China.

Beauty digital buzz ranking

L’Oreal and Estee Lauder are at the center of the China’s beauty discussions that they were listed as number one and two in the ranking respectively.  The organic buzz of Estee Lauder is almost double of that of Kiehl’s, which is at third place.  (Please view the full report for the 51 brands rank)

It’s not hard to see that the result somehow reflects the brands’ input in the Chinese digital marketing sector. Take L’Oreal as an example. Since 2015, the brand has been shifting its marketing focus to digital media. In 2016 the brand successfully conducted several promotion campaigns by embracing cutting edge digital marketing tactics, from cooperating with online influencers to applying live streaming and AI technologies.  (For more case studies please visit our Isentia blog section)

5 major makeup and skincare trends in China

The beauty trend 1: Pursing whitening, radiance, and glowing skin

Through the analysis we found that Chinese consumers do not only desire fair but also radiant and glowing skin. Watery glowing skin, girly skin and lustrous skin have become the hot key words used by consumers to describe their desired skin.

To promote products with hydrant and glowing effects, cosmetic brands are frequently using key words such as “Watery glowing skin” which means the skin is hydrated and full of radiance. The study reveals that in China, Estee Lauder (Micro Essence Infusion Mask) and YSL (Fusion Ink Encre de Peau Cushion Foundation, Touche Eclat Le Teint) are the brands that leverage the key words for product promotion and also receive high online discussions.

The beauty trends 2: Blurred lines between skincare and makeup

Adding skincare function into foundation is not a new concept. Since 2012, high-end makeup brands such as La Mer and Sisely’s foundation products have been called “Skincare foundation” as their foundations have nourishing or replenishing properties. In 2017, “Serum/Essential oil foundation” and “Instant age rewind foundation” have become the new hot key words for foundation products.

Through buzz analysis we can see that the expectations of consumers for essential oil foundations are majorly focused on the radiance, smoothness and moisturizing effects. Currently the most discussed product is Armani “Maestro fusion makeup maquillage fusion”.

The beauty trends 3: Strong needs for shortcuts to daily beauty routines

In 2015, Su Yan Shuang (素颜霜), which is a combined product of makeup and skincare, caters to women who want the “fake bare face (伪素颜)” effect. It is a cream which modifies the skin color, improves skin texture and optimizes the skin’s clarity while promoting inner radiance.

The online discussion on Su Yan Shuang during 2017 Q2 surged 15 times compared with the previous quarter. Below is the rank of the top products related to Su Yan Shuang.

The beauty trends 4: Matte as new makeup trend and hottest lipstick colors 

In 2017 Q2, the organic buzz volume on “matte makeup” soared by 16% compared to Q1. As opposed to shimmer, glow, or shiny makeup, matte makeup is a kind of makeup that creates non-greasy and natural look. It is void of any excess oils, and has more velvety finish that pulls light inward, often with a powdery texture.

Based on the analysis of consumer discussions on lipstick products, we can see the change of the trend. The top 3 hottest lipstick colors by Chinese neitizen’s discussions in Q2 are matte, pink and red. Compared to the last quarter, colors such as “mermaid color” and “peach blossom red” that were popular due to the popular TV dramas are gradually diminished due to the finish of the show.

The beauty trends 5: Social media slang in beauty emerged as hot communication language

When online influencers and social media key accounts are reviewing beauty products, they like to use social media words or nick-names of the products. As more brands are tapping into social media marketing, they tend to use “beauty slangs” and adapt the similar tone of voice for content creation to better engage with their consumers online. Isentia beauty trend study lists the recent hottest beauty slang with explanations. For example, the hottest and commonly used word is “Zhong cao 种草” (plant weeds), which refers to product recommendation shared by KOL or netizens to stimulate the intention of purchasing. The most co-mentioned products with “Zhong cao” is lipstick, followed by eye and facial makeup, and then skin care products.

Another word “Kong Ping 空瓶” (empty bottle), which means use out the product, is often appears at the product evaluation related post. Many China beauty influencers are posting content with themes such as “Kong Ping Ji 空瓶记” (Summary of Empties) for product review content.

Renie Zhang, Isentia associate insight director, said, “by pinpointing and understanding the trendy hot key words, brands can adjust their social media listening plans accordingly to better identify consumers insight for business actions. Social media is rapidly changing the way beauty brands connect and communicate with consumers. The Chinese post-80s and 90s generations have become the core consumers of beauty products, and they are also active social media users. At least half of their purchase decisions are based on word of mouth, with social media having a major impact on their entire purchase journey. By understanding market trends, consumer presences, identify personas and influential promotion channels, brands can leverage social media analysis and obtain different levels of insights.

Isentia社交媒体分析发布2017 Top 10 美妆品牌数字媒体热度榜



无论是市场调研或用户行为研究,社交媒体数据已经成为营销者必不可缺的工具。在利用社交媒体进行营销的趋势中,美妆是最彻底且始终走在前列的行业之一。Isentia针对51个知名美妆品牌,于2017年第二季度在微博、微信、问答、论坛、博客、网站及红宝书APP等社交媒体上的数据进行了抓取和分析。对数据进行筛查后,以品牌在数字媒体上的讨论热度(Organic buzz)为参照进行了排名,并总结了近期中国美妆消费及需求的五大趋势。

欧莱雅品牌及相关产品作为中国消费者社交媒体讨论的热门焦点,位列榜首。排名第二的雅诗兰黛比第三位的科颜氏的讨论量 (Organic buzz)超出近一倍。



根据Isentia的中国美妆行业社交媒体分析显示,Estee Lauder(微精华原生导入面膜)及YSL(Fusion Ink羽毛气垫粉底、超模聚焦光感粉底液)是目前与“水光肌”结合最紧密的两大品牌,引起大量消费者讨论。

具有养肤功能的粉底并不是一个全新的概念。早在2012年高端化妆品如La mer、Sisely等相关粉底产品就因有滋养或者不伤皮肤的功效被称为“养肤粉底”,2017年,在粉底中加入精华元素的“精华粉底”及“橡皮擦”成为各大品牌主打及消费者追捧的产品关键词。社交媒体分析总结消费者针对精华粉底的功效讨论,焦点主要集中在“精华粉底=光泽+丝柔+滋润”,中国市场最热门的相关产品为Armani的极缎丝柔精华粉底液。

被称为懒人福利的“素颜霜”从韩国开始流行,自2015年底被消费者注意,也因更多品牌推出类似产品而逐渐升温。据Isentia社交媒体分析,2017年第二季度“素颜霜”的社交媒体讨论量比第一季度增长高达15倍。根据讨论量我们为在中国市场大红的素颜霜品牌进行了汇总和排名,頭三名分別為 Dr. Jart + V7 Toning Light 素颜霜、芭妮兰焕亮霜、莱欧蜗牛素颜霜。



美丽趋势五:  社交媒体语言“美妆热词”使用

Isentia 社交媒体分析总监Renie Zhang说道:“社交媒体已经完全颠覆了美妆行业的营销方式。80后及90后已经成为美妆产品的中坚消费力量,这些极具购买力的年轻群体与社交媒体活跃人群是完全重合的,他们有一半的购买行为是基于口碑这一主要因素。无论是从了解市场趋势、消费者诉求、还是获取潜在用户画像、定位有影响力渠道或时尚博主,品牌都可以通过社交媒体分析及时获得不同层级的洞察。”

Microsemi Announces New Serval-T Ethernet Switch Product Family Enabling Nanosecond Accurate 1588 Solution in a Single Device

Hong Kong, China, November 1, 2017 / – Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced its new Serval-T#8482; Ethernet switch product family delivering nanosecond accurate IEEE#8482; 1588 solutions that can meet next-generation 5G network as well as location-based service requirements. This unique device family, which includes Serval-T (VSC7415), Serval-TE (VSC7435) and Serval-TE10 (VSC7437), integrates Microsemi’s Carrier Ethernet Switch capabilities with an on-chip phase-locked loop (PLL), expanding the company’s portfolio of access networking and timing solutions.

The new devices deliver a flexible combination of 1GE, 2.5GE and 10GE, making them attractive for access communication equipment such as mobile backhaul, small cell and Ethernet access device (EAD)/network interface device (NID). The products leverage a virtualized service aware architecture (ViSAA#8482;)—a silicon implementation that is differentiated by hardware-based Ethernet service—and also provide operation, administration and maintenance (OAM), service activation testing (SAT) and protection switching capabilities. They also offer low power, translating to cost savings for service providers, as well as the small size necessary to accommodate outdoor and other installation constraints. Combining these features with a turnkey software solution that provides CE2.0 certified functionalities and a leading servo algorithm solution enables Microsemi customers to build market-ready solutions that can meet stringent service provider networking needs.

“As our customers prepare for the transition to 5G and look to support location-based services, our new Serval-T Ethernet switches leverage our deep expertise in Carrier Ethernet switching and timing to support an impressive less than two nanosecond timestamp resolution and accuracy for their next-generation deployments,” said Uday Mudoi, vice president of marketing for Microsemi’s Ethernet Networking Technology (ENT) group. “As the only company offering Ethernet switches and PHYs with highly accurate timestamping capabilities, Precision Timing Protocol (PTP) software, advanced servo algorithms and grandmaster timing products, Serval-T brings together a breadth of our capabilities in a single chip solution, demonstrating Microsemi’s commitment to continued innovation.”

According to market research firm IHS Markit, small cell backhaul equipment revenue will grow to $1.2 billion in 2021 at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 51 percent, with next-generation 5G networks fueling this market growth. Microsemi’s new Serval-T (VSC7415), Serval-TE (VSC7435) and Serval-TE10 (VSC7437) devices cater to this growing demand, offering best-in-class features to ensure customers are prepared for the specific requirements of these network deployments.

Microsemi’s new Serval-T Ethernet switch product family has been significantly enhanced from the previous generation of devices, with two additional ports of integrated copper PHY, 10G Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes), an IEEE 1588/Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) digital phase locked loop (DPLL), as well as a lower chip count from three to one, lowering bill of materials costs and enabling smaller form factor designs and lower power solutions. This simplifies designs, reduces costs and accelerates time to market for customers. The devices also utilize VeriTime#8482;, Microsemi’s patent-pending timing technology that delivers highly accurate IEEE 1588 network timing and synchronization implementation, to deliver nanosecond-accurate timestamping on all ports.

In comparison to competing devices that need multiple external components to support similar features, Microsemi uniquely builds the products’ offerings into the devices’ hardware—making the solution faster with lower power and superior scale as more services are added. This also enables the devices to perform multiple operations in parallel, shortening development time.

Product Availability
Microsemi’s new Serval-T Ethernet switch product family, including its Serval-T (VSC7415), Serval-TE (VSC7435) and Serval-TE10 (VSC7437) devices, is available now. For more information, visit or email

Rutronik supports Team HCB-Rutronik Racing in the Macau GP

Hong Kong, China, October 30, 2017 / – Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH plans to broaden its business relationships in Asia and become better known in this growth market. To this end, Rutronik will be the main sponsor for Team HCB-Rutronik Racing from Wilferdingen at the FIA Grand Prix in Macau together with its partners Yageo and Vishay. The event will take place from Thursday, 16 November until Sunday, 19 November. Team HCB-Rutronik Racing will also be receiving support from Audi Sport customer racing.

“Without our powerful partners Yageo, Vishay and Audi Sport customer racing, we would not be able to engage in this degree of commitment in Macau,” says Rutronik CEO Thomas Rudel. As a team, the partners pulled off a real coup: Team HCB-Rutronik Racing’s No. 1 driver behind the wheel of one of the two Audi R8 LMS is none other than the current Formula E world champion Lucas di Grassi. CEO Rudel explains how engaging the Brazilian has a strategic significance that goes beyond the sporting success: “Lucas di Grassi is the Formula E world champion. But he is also an entrepreneur and owner of a company that manufactures innovative e-bikes. Motor sports know-how is one of the ingredients that contributes to the production processes. This means that di Grassi embodies Rutronik’s philosophy as a highly innovative, flexible and dynamic company.”

Initial exchanges between di Grassi and the distributor have already taken place, and Rutronik is interested in intensifying this cooperation. CEO Rudel can also imagine further cooperation with Roborace, the world’s first driverless motor sports platform of which di Grassi is the CEO. The automotive sector is one of Rutronik’s most important business areas; the electronic component distributor achieves over 40% of its turnover in this area. This means the company can make a correspondingly weighty contribution in terms of its expertise and providing access to the latest components.

The company intends to use the Macau Grand Prix as a platform for intensifying its business relationships with important partners including co-sponsors Yageo and Vishay, as well as strengthening its profile on the Asian market in general. In 2016, when Rutronik was main sponsor for HCB-Rutronik Racing in Macau for the first time, 87 TV stations and over 900 radio stations from all over the world reported on the GP, not to mention worldwide streaming services and around 400,000 enthusiastic fans at the event itself.

The world champion‘s optimism

“For me, Macau is one of the most difficult races in the world,” says Lucas di Grassi. “I have already raced here twice in Formula 3 and am very much looking forward to returning. What interests me especially is getting to know the course as an Audi works driver with a GT vehicle. HCB-Rutronik Racing is a highly professional team, and I think we have a good chance of winning the race. That is definitely my aim. The contact with Rutronik also came via HCB, and I am really looking forward to further cooperation in future.” The second HCBRutronik Racing cockpit will be occupied by Fabian Plentz, as was the case last year. This year, HCB-Rutronik Racing is receiving works support from Audi Sport customer racing.

Macau as a factor in Rutronik‘s Asia strategy

The Macau Grand Prix is regarded as being one of the most important motor sport events of the racing year. Since 1954, several Formula 1 drivers have raced in the GP. The winners include Ayrton Senna, Michael and Ralf Schumacher as well as David Coulthard. The GT World Cup in which HCB-Rutronik Racing is taking part has been held since 2008.

“Asia is a huge growth market for Rutronik, and the Macau Grand Prix is one of the largest motor sport events in the world,” as Markus Krieg, Rutronik’s Managing Director for marketing, points out. “Motor racing has to be able to rely on extremely high-quality electronic components that can cope with the most demanding of situations. So from the entrepreneurial point of view, being present at such a high-profile race represents the perfect opportunity for Rutronik to position itself as a technologically competent and reliable partner for local, regional and global customers.” Currently, Rutronik has three offices in China – in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Chengdu – as well as subsidiaries in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Thailand.

Ingenico Introduces AI-Powered Zero Fraud Solution

Hong Kong, China, October 30, 2017 / – Ingenico Group, the global leader in seamless payment, announced that it has expanded its fraud detection and management capabilities with a new, real time solution that enables merchants to increase revenue by optimizing their acceptance rate and reduce customer churn. The new solution leverages sophisticated Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology developed by the German-Israeli payment security company Fraugster to identify and separate fraudulent transactions from legitimate ones. This enables a new fraud protection insurance model, which means fraud is reduced to zero for merchants. If any fraudulent transactions slip through the solution, the costs are absorbed by Fraugster. As the solution is fully integrated into Ingenico’s platform, adding the fraud solution is simple and only requires one click activation with no additional technical implementation on the side of the merchant.

As the total global eCommerce market continues to grow, so do the costs associated with online fraud and chargebacks. This is particularly true for international merchants, because cross-border payments have significantly higher risk of fraud than domestic payments do. Increasingly, sophisticated cyber criminals also take advantage of the shift to mobile payments, where fraud losses are higher as percentage of revenue. In addition to monetary losses, online fraud also brings with it the risk of potentially severe reputation damage. Consumers are less inclined to shop at merchants that have been associated with fraud. Yet merchants who implement overly strict fraud rules risk rejecting legitimate customers, leading to further monetary and reputation loss.

As a global Payment Service Provider, Ingenico not only processes online and mobile payments, but also provides value-added services to further optimize merchants’ financial flow. The new fraud solution offers merchants a choice of two products that each target a side of the risk management coin.

#8226; The Fraud Free Product: Made for merchants who have a chargeback problem. This product covers CNP losses for merchants who have high chargeback rates.

#8226; The new Fraud Free+: Made for merchants who have an acceptance rate problem. This product not only covers merchant’s chargeback losses but also increases their acceptance rates and revenue by accepting more good customers.

Automated risk management and reporting provide transparency as well as instant, detailed feedback on performance – allowing in-house risk teams to focus on other tasks.

“Fraud is a fact of life for online merchants, but that doesn’t mean they have to just accept it. At Ingenico, we reduce exposure to fraud to a minimum with efficient tooling and expertise,” said Gabriel de Montessus, VP Retail Global Product and Marketing for Ingenico Group. “Artificial Intelligence is the future of fraud prevention, and this solution will help our merchants improve their performance.”

“This partnership combines Fraugster’s innovative technology and disruptive vision with Ingenico’s experience, global merchant portfolio and ability to execute at scale,” said Max Laemmle, CEO and founder of Fraugster. “Independently, we each have a piece of the puzzle. Together, we will take that next step and reduce online fraud to zero for merchants.”

To help merchants understand the true cost of fraud and address common questions about the use of AI in fraud prevention strategies, Ingenico and Fraugster developed a comprehensive report that can be downloaded free of charge at
