A study has shown that women spend £100,352 (RM480, 686) on just makeup alone in a lifetime. That works up to about £40 (RM191) a week from when you turn sweet 16 until the day you hit 65 years of age.
Two thirds of the 2,200 polled said that it would cost them up to £550 (RM2, 634) to replenish their collection beauty products. One in ten of those polled admitted that theirs would cost £700 (RM3, 353). We have a feeling that these “one in ten” are probably the same ones who would go for an array of designer makeup and skincare (read: La Mer, Chanel, MAC).
But of course, women don’t only keep their beauty products at home. We’re not talking about bottles, jars, and tools lying around on their dresser or lined up along/spilling off their bathroom counter.
Most women carry a smaller makeup pouch/bag in their handbags for essential daily routine and touch-up items. These pouches/bags usually contain everything from eyedrops, lipgloss, eyeliners, foundations, pressed powders, lipsticks, concealers, lip balm, contact lens cases, so on and so forth. And guess what? The value of a female’s makeup bag alone costs a whopping £130 (RM622) on average.
So, you think beauty doesn’t come with a price? Yes it does! Even if it’s the most basic of all look-enhancing methods.
