Are You Buying More or Less Beauty Due to the Recession?

Traditionally, when the economy sinks, people buy fewer things that they don't really need. But a couple of girly treats are actually selling better than before. Shoes are moving more than they were last year, and in the United Kingdom, beauty sales are up. Cosmetics rose 7.4 percent between 2007 and 2008, with skin care up 6.7 percent during the same period. (It'll be interesting to see if the trend continues, considering how much worse the economy is this year.) Are you treating yourself to more beauty goods these days, or are you watching your pennies?
