We can freely admit that whenever we go shopping for makeup, we inevitably leave with a few more products than we anticipated buying. If you’re guilty too, it’s actually not all that unusual.
According to a new video by Money, the average woman will spend US$43 on a shopping trip for makeup. (Our bank accounts may not thank us, but our vanities sure do.)
What really gave us a shock, though, was discovering that a woman spends US$15,000 on beauty products in her lifetime. That’s a lot of lipsticks… or the cash for a used car!
Out of that money, US$3,770 is spent on mascara alone. Another US$2,750 is allotted to eyeshadows (blue is totally in right now). And $1,780 is dedicated to new lipsticks. And that’s not even including all the products you need to buy to keep your beauty tools clean.
If all of these numbers seem shocking, it makes a lot more sense when you consider the entire beauty industry is worth an astounding $382 billion globally.
Whoever said “you can’t put a price on beauty” was clearly misinformed.
