This year, I was amazed to read an article about a British woman who ball-parked her yearly cosmetics spend at £24,000. That’s $44,000 of cold, hard cash.
Now I like cosmetics more than your average chick (in particular this Bourjois lippy) but spending the majority of my yearly wage on various lotions and potions seems a tad extreme, even to me, a full paid-up member of Beauty Addicts Anonymous. I’d say my figure is more around the $8,000 mark which still alarms me when I see it written there in black and white but I tell myself it’s a small price to pay for looking and feeling fabulous. And it seems to some, it really is.
How much do you spend on cosmetics over 12 months?
Stockists: Bourjois (1800 181 040).
