Is there a cost to being beautiful?
Disclosure: Today’s conversation on the cost of beauty is brought to you by Halifax. All opinions are my own.
Even for a casual makeup user, the costs can really add up. I’m always shellshocked when I see my bill. I mean I only picked up a couple things, how can it be over $150?!?
Many women are using their credit cards to pay for these items. Personally I do this because I can earn rewards from my makeup addiction! At 1% (1 dollar on every 100) I usually get at least $40-$50 back a year. (You do the math!!)
Also, I like that many credit cards allow returns even when traditional retailers do not. Besides that its easier to swipe than to count out a bunch of cash!
To illustrate the cost of being beautiful let’s look at some of the most expensive makeup items on the market:
1.La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation ($195)
2.Clé de Peau Beauté Refining Pressed Powder ($175)
3.Guerlain ‘Meteorites Voyage’ Compact ($170)
4.Yves Saint Laurent ‘Teint Majeur’ Luxurious Foundation SPF 18 ($99)
5. Giorgio Armani ‘Bronze’ Palette ($88)
6.Guerlain ‘Écrin 6 Couleurs’ Eyeshadow Palette ($86)
7. La Mer ‘The Treatment Foundation’ Broad Spectrum SPF 15 ($85)
8.Dior ‘Cherie Bow’ Palette ($80)
9.stila ‘happily ever after’ beauty palette ($75)
10.Guerlain ‘Météorites Perles’ Light Diffusing Primer ($71)
The grand total:$1,124!
There is no doubt a cost associated with being beautiful!
