Do You Carry Less Makeup as You Get Older?

Jul 15 2009 - 1:30pm
Got that makeup bag handy? If so, take a peek inside and tally up the total price of all your beauty goodies. Are you surprised by the amount? (I was.) Even for low-maintenance beauties, it seems to be common to carry at least something in the ol' purse.

According to a survey of more than 1,000 women in the UK [1], not only are people still spending big bucks on beauty, but women spend differently depending on their age. While women 25 to 34 carried about $116 of makeup, those in the over-55 category carried less than $57 worth.

I'm betting a single pricey compact and a lipstick equal more than a bag full of the junk I toted around when I was a teen (and I've totally been weaning my purse supply from college to now). How has your makeup bag changed over the years, and do the products' prices still add up?
