The purpose of this study is to investigate the impulsive purchase of Generation Z of Muslim women on TikTok Shop. The primary attention in this stimulation investigation drives the impulsive buying between the Generation Z of Muslim women customers in Indonesia. This study provides valuable concept to help a company or cosmetic brand grow the marketing strategy for stimulating impulsive behaviour of Generation Z customers on TikTok Shop.
An online survey of 256 Muslim women consumers of the Generation Z was used to collect the data. Covariance-based structural equation modelling was applied to assess the five hypotheses.
The results of this study indicate that micro-celebrities post authenticity has a positive and significant relationship with utilitarian browsing. However, micro-celebrities post authenticity did not have a positive and significant relationship with hedonic browsing. This study also concludes that utilitarian browsing was found to have a positive and significant relationship with hedonic browsing. Finally, hedonic browsing was found to have a positive and significant effect on reminiscence impulse purchase intention and designed impulse purchase intention.
The primary limitation is the research sample that only consists of Indonesian TikTok Shop customers. Next, the researchers could examine the research model in several countries to expand its generalisation. The second one, this research does not consider the origin country of a cosmetic product. The future study must investigate the local and foreign cosmetics to see the preference and the differences in the impulsive purchase, especially for Z women generation customer. Third, this study quantifies the intention to buy impulsively so that the following research must investigate the ownership of the cosmetics product that has been bought before. Finally, the research only involves a quantitative research method. The future study must investigate with another approach, such as a qualitative method or mixed-method, in the impulsive purchase intention context.
A cosmetic company or marketer could maximise the authenticity, relevancy and attractive information that is posted by micro media social celebrities or media social influencers. Cosmetic companies or marketers must provide comprehensive information to satisfy customers’ browsing actions. Finally, besides the information related to the limited cosmetics product stock, discount and promotion as the effective strategy to stimulate the impulsive buying, the cosmetics marketing can use gamification, increasing the picture quality and equipping product descriptions, and making educational content.
The existence of TikTok Shop is increasing the number of cosmetics products and competitors because of product’s excessive availability in the market. In the social benefit context, the Generation Z Muslim women can purchase and use various cosmetics product available on TikTok Shop, but customers must be on guard by knowing the cosmetics material to prevent the healthiness. In addition, the existence of TikTok Shop and the impulsive purchases by the Generation Z Muslim women are also increasing the retailer or local cosmetics producer income.
This study is a contribution to consumer behaviour literature by raising the Stimulus–Organism–Response framework used in determining the factors influencing browsing and impulsive consumption of cosmetic products on TikTok Shop.

This study aims to investigate how the social identity theory and emotional attachment theory influence the willingness of consumers to buy foreign cosmetic products. Specifically, this study examines the relationship between consumer ethnocentrism, foreign product judgment and willingness to buy foreign products. Furthermore, the interaction effect of consumer affinity and patriotism are tested in the model.
An online survey of 208 millennial Muslim women consumers was used to collect the data. The structural equation modeling test was used to assess the six hypotheses. Moreover, the two-step estimation approach was used to test the interaction moderation of consumer affinity and patriotism.
The results indicate that consumer ethnocentrism has a positive and significant relationship with foreign product judgment. Foreign product judgment was also found to have a positive and significant relationship with willingness to buy. In addition, this study concludes that affinity was found to moderate the relationship between consumer ethnocentrism and foreign product judgment and strengthen the positive and significant effect of foreign product judgment on the willingness to buy. Finally, patriotism did not moderate the relationship between consumer ethnocentrism and foreign product judgment. However, patriotism moderated the relationship between foreign product judgment and willingness to buy.
This study only focused on one category (i.e. low involvement product), and the authors recommend future studies to examine a high involvement product. Other individual orientation constructs, such as xenocentrism, need to be examined in future studies. Moreover, only intentional measures were investigated. Thus, further research could correlate intentional measures with product ownership. Finally, future research could examine how consumers behave differently across nations. Thus, the present model would require cross-cultural research.
Marketers focusing on global branding and international marketing can benefit from the findings of this paper by understanding the antecedents of consumers’ willingness to buy in the foreign cosmetic products setting. Additionally, foreign cosmetic marketers could focus on consumer affinity to strengthen the communication with and arouse the affinity of Muslim millennials women consumers in Indonesia. Finally, marketers can incorporate messages and signals of patriotism in their marketing communications to increase Muslim millennial women consumers’ love and pride.
The growing obsession with beauty among women has led to the immense growth of the cosmetics industry. This phenomenon has spawned an abundance of cosmetic products on the market. The advancement of information technology has further increased competition for cosmetic products as more products can be quickly brought to market. Muslim millennials consumers must be aware and careful about raw materials, impacts on long-term health, impacts on the national economy, environmental impacts and halal certification when using various kinds of cosmetics.
This study contributes to the literature on international marketing research by incorporating the interactive effect of consumer affinity and patriotism in the acceptance of foreign cosmetic products.
