Will You Spend More or Less on Beauty in 2010?

Is the recession anywhere near over? Not if you're measuring spending on beauty. WWD reports that according to one study, women are expected to spend 8.7 percent less on cosmetics in 2010 than they did this year. (Women in the South are less likely to be part of this group, interestingly enough.) Next year, do you think you'll spend less, more, or about the same on cosmetics?

Much less! I worked at Lush over xmas and bought tonnes of skincare, conditioner and off course soap. I won't need to stock up for months.

Less! I was just in the bathroom picking out my NYE makeup and I just had wayyyy too much to choose from. Going to seriously cut through that stash. I might save my buying for times like the Sephora sale (late in the year), but it'll be good for my bank account if I use up what I have.

Good point, bellafranki. I think skin care is a good investment.

I plan to spend more on great skincare, less on make-up. I feel like it's important to have great skin...then the make-up that you do wear looks awesome!

More on my creams/lotions/sunblocks but less on makeup.

More. I don't wear makeup, so I expect to spend a bit of money on the basics.

More. I only bought red lipstick, foundation and liquid eyeliner this year.

Less - I have spent the past few months of 2009 trying to streamline my makeup and not buy so much useless stuff. I now have it down pat and am entering 2010 ready to save!

More! I plan to use a lot more of my '09 stash next year so I can get new ones next year!

Less.. if only because I realized I actually have a crapload of makeup and I rarely use them everyday, save for foundation, eyeliner and lip gloss. It's gonna take me at least two years to clear out my stash. But otherwise I hardly feel guilty about my beauty spending. :) In a time like this, a bit of makeup is just what every girl needs!
