The results from the survey takes a detour from widely assumed buying decisions/influence as women stood by the brand they trust and not necessarily through random influence.

Surprisingly, the study revealed 1 out of 5 women have not switched up their makeup routine in over year making brand loyalty and the possibility of using a brand for years on end a common feature amongst most women.

Other surprising results from the study includes a whooping 40% shopped their makeup products from departmental stores and a lot didn't test out new products frequently.

The top reasons for brand loyalty in women were presented as quality of products by a whooping 38.1%, continuous use/women tend to buy products they've used for a long time and those that are of good value.
