Celebrity Brands

Forget just red carpets and chart-topping hits, some celebrities are taking the entrepreneur world by storm. I’m talking about fragrances that tantalize, fashion lines that flatter, and innovations that inspire – all dreamed up by your favorite stars. But what makes these ventures so successful?

As an entrepreneurial woman with big goals, big dreams, and a work drive that sometimes causes me to spiral into a pit of caffeine and anxiety, I’m always drawn to discovering about how people achieve business success and what I can learn from them. The question is, are we simply drawn to the star power of these entrepreneurs, or is there something more to these products?

I’m going to check out the most popular celebrity brands in the UK and ask why they’re captivating British consumers. To help me out, marketing experts at Upbeat Agency used Google search volume data to analyse search volume for search terms relating to 219 celebrity brands. These included terms such as ‘Selena Gomez beauty brand’, ‘Gary Barlow wine’, and ‘Cristiano Ronaldo brand’. The brands were then ranked to find which are the most popular in the UK.

While many celebrities have started a company of their own, not many have been as successful or popular as these celebs. That is because they have a passion for what they are creating, and they are credible advocates for their brands.

The brands have surpassed the initial celebrity hype stage because they produce quality products that have stood the test of time and silenced critics.

Rihanna, known for her bold beauty looks and diverse background, created a line that celebrates all skin tones and ethnicities. But inclusivity is just one piece of the puzzle.

Fenty Beauty’s lip glosses are a major reason for the brand’s success. Rihanna herself handpicked the 11 universal shades, ensuring they flatter a wide range of complexions.

The comfortable, non-sticky texture makes it perfect for everyday wear.

One of the core principles of Florence by Mills is clean beauty. Their products are free from harsh chemicals, parabens, and sulfates, making them ideal for young skin that’s still developing. This focus on clean ingredients resonates with a generation that’s increasingly conscious about what they put on their bodies.

The Clean Magic Face Wash is free of parabens, sulfates, and other potentially irritating ingredients, making it ideal for all skin types, especially young skin that’s still developing. This focus on clean beauty resonates with a generation that prioritizes natural and gentle products. The Clean Magic Face Wash comes in a cute, pastel-colored tube that feels fun and approachable, a stark contrast to some overly clinical-looking cleansers.

CR7 by Cristiano Ronaldo

Fifth place goes to CR7 by Cristiano Ronaldo, with 24,030 searches per month in the UK, making CR7 the most popular brand by a footballer in the UK. The brand has been going since 2006.

Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t just a legendary footballer; he’s a global brand unto himself. His CR7 line extends beyond jerseys and memorabilia, offering a range of products that resonate with fans and fitness enthusiasts alike. But what makes CR7 such a successful brand?

CR7 isn’t just about football apparel. The brand offers a variety of lifestyle products, including underwear, footwear, fragrances, and even eyewear. This allows fans to connect with Ronaldo’s brand on a deeper level, incorporating it into their everyday lives.

CR7 products aren’t just slapped with Ronaldo’s logo and rushed to market. The brand emphasizes quality materials and a sleek, modern design aesthetic. This ensures that CR7 products are not only functional but also stylish, appealing to a wider audience beyond die-hard fans.

Eilish by Billie Eilish

Eilish by Billie Eilish ranks sixth overall, with 21,010 searches made per month across the UK. The singer’s fragrance comes in a range of sizes, from 30ml to 100ml, and 100ml is the most sought-after size, with 350 searches a month. The striking bottle draws inspiration from Eilish’s favourite areas of the human body – the chest, neck, and collarbone.

This collaboration ensures that the fragrance truly reflects Eilish’s vision and personal style, adding a layer of authenticity that resonates with fans.

The fragrance itself is a captivating blend of unexpected notes. Instead of relying on traditional florals, Eilish by Billie Eilish features a unique mix of mandarin oil, sugared vanilla, and warm amber. This creates a complex and intriguing scent that’s both sweet and slightly dark, mirroring the duality present in Eilish’s music and style.

r.e.m beauty by Ariana Grande

Taking the seventh spot is r.e.m beauty by Ariana Grande, with 19,310 searches a month. The most in-demand product from Grande’s beauty brand is her foundation, with 800 monthly searches, followed by her lip oil, with 500 searches a month. The singer’s brand was founded in 2021 and emphasizes being vegan and cruelty-free.

It’s perfect for those who want a subtle sheen or a more dramatic, glossy look. The non-sticky formula ensures comfortable wear throughout the day, making it ideal for everyday use.

Fantasy perfume range by Britney Spears

Spears has brought out a staggering 42 different fragrances since 2004, and her most popular fragrance with the UK public is her Midnight Fantasy perfume, with 1,700 searches a month made for the fragrance.

Fantasy launched in 2004, at the height of Britney’s pop princess reign. Fans instantly connected the playful, shimmery bottle with the energy and vibrancy of their idol. Britney wasn’t just selling a perfume; she was selling a feeling – the feeling of being a young, confident woman ready to take on the world. This emotional connection with a beloved celebrity is a key factor in Fantasy’s enduring legacy.

While the original Fantasy is known for its bright and fruity notes, Midnight Fantasy takes a decidedly darker turn. This fragrance is designed to evoke the sensuality and intrigue of nighttime. he top notes still hold a hint of sweetness with exotic fruits like framboise (a type of raspberry) and black cherry. However, these playful notes are quickly shrouded in a veil of mystery with the introduction of plum. This combination creates a more sophisticated and intriguing scent profile compared to the original Fantasy.

Victoria Beckham Beauty

In the penultimate spot is Victoria Beckham Beauty, with 12,200 Google searches made per month. Popstar-turned-businesswoman Victoria has made a name for herself in the fashion industry with her high-end label but her most sought-after brand in the UK is her beauty brand. The most searched-for product from her range is the Satin Kajal Liner, with 90 searches a month.

Victoria Beckham Beauty isn’t about flashy gimmicks or trendy fads. It focuses on high-quality, luxurious formulas designed to enhance natural beauty without masking it. The sleek and minimalist packaging reflects this philosophy, exuding an air of timeless elegance. This focus on luxury resonates with those who appreciate quality ingredients and a sophisticated aesthetic.

Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner

Concluding the list is Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner, with 10,560 searches made a month. The American socialite and media personality launched her cosmetics brand in 2015, selling her Kylie Lip Kits. The brand has since expanded considerably and its mascara is the most searched-for product, with 200 searches for the item made in the UK each month.
