We know that women love makeup, but retailer SkinStore conducted a survey to determine just how intense the love really is — and the results might shock you.
SkinStore surveyed 3,000 women ages 16 to 75 on their makeup regimens. The company found that women use a minimum of 16 products before leaving the house. They also found American women reportedly spend up to $300,000 in their lifetime on cosmetics. Like, that's the price of a decent house.
Women from New York, Connecticut and West Virginia spend the most on their faces, an average of $11 a day. Conversely, women in Utah, Colorado and Montana spend just $3.50 a day on their beautification rituals. In fact, East Coast women in general were found to spend more than their West Coast counterparts.
