Glossier Is Expanding In Europe This Year

May 17, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

US direct-to-consumer cosmetics brand Glossier is set to expand internationally, with shipments to Ireland under way and plans for Sweden in June, and Denmark and France later in the year. The brand launched in the US four years ago and reached both Canada and the UK in 2017. It has been using social media, including Instagram, to create a community of followers, with some becoming brand ambassadors, some paid and some not. The brand seeks people in the new markets that are highly engaged, meets them, and treats them as influencers. The approach worked for the UK launch, and helped attract 10,000 people to its London pop-up in October last year. Estimates put the brand’s sales at around $50 million in 2017, and it has so far raised $86 million in financing. Although the brand expects expansion to bring unique challenges in the different markets, it has chosen not to adapt its products and strategy for each.
