Beauty Products Enjoy Growth During Recession

Posted by Joann Marks on Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Joann Marks was quoted in a recent Canvas8 article discussing beauty spending during a recession. A survey found that during hard times when spending across the board had slowed, beauty products enjoyed huge growth. Why? “It’s about rationalizing what you feel you ‘deserve’. It’s like treating yourself to dinner and a movie when you can’t afford that vacation to Bermuda,” says Joann Marks.

The article states that during the Great Depression, cosmetic sales increased by 25%. This was called the “lipstick-effect”. Despite economic hard times, women want to keep up their appearance. Leonard Lauder, chairman of Estée Lauder, coined the phrase “lipstick index” which essentially determines that during a slow economy, women buy makeup. Additionally, in the fall of 2001, for example, when most products when most products were seeing decreasing sales, US lipstick sales rose by 11%!

“One report suggested that during recessions, the quality of available males tends to decline, so single women need to ‘up their game’ in the dating space and therefore invest in improving their appearance”.

Social media is responsible for some of the change as well. “Under-35s have become addicted to pictures of themselves and their friends,” Marks says. “Everyone wants to be tagged and liked to secure and advance their position in the social pecking order.” Women seem to follow trends more as a result of being bombarded with social media.

The younger generation seems to have become more obsessed with the way they look, and with the response they get from other people. “One poll revealed that the average girls’ night out involves three days of planning and more than an hour of applying up to 14 different beauty products.” Marks says, “The 20-somethings of today don’t embrace the same concepts of loyalty as the last generation. The younger generation leaps from job to job more frequently, and the old model of lifetime employement has been replaced by a new model of lifetime ’employability’. This perpetuates the mindset of living in the present and making the best of your situation now, with less concern and planning for the future.”
