With the reference of a late-1970s Avon catalog and Avon's current website as pricing guides, see just how much more you'd shell out now to get a vintage Debbie Harry-style makeup look when you keep reading.
|ITEM||PRICE IN THE LATE '70s||PRICE IN 2011|
|Cream eye shadow||$7 (for two)||$14 (for two)|
Whoa, it's a whopping three times more. Of course, that's just using Avon as an example, but the good news is it's just a little below inflation. Crunching a few numbers on the US inflation calculator website reveals that $22.50 back in 1979 translates to about $70 now: a 211 percent increase. Are you surprised by the results? And most of all, will you be rocking this makeup look any time soon?
