The Cost of Beauty

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

      The cosmetic and beauty industry are huge money making industries and, according to some analysts, it is poised to gross right at $250B this year and $265B next year. What can I say? That is a lot of beautiful women. Talk about beautiful women, I wonder how much time it takes this person to make herself beautiful each morning? Gawd, I’m glad I’m a man and don’t have to fool with all this stuff! 

And that my friends, is my 2¢’s worth for this evening.

Maybe we are in the wrong business Michael TeamCHI - Complete Home Inspections, Inc. I could use part of that billions of dollars.

Holy Guacamole! That is a lot of cosmetics! I hate makeup, I wear it, but I resent it. I slap it on so fast in the morning its almost comical. And then that's it. No touch ups. Of course I make sure that any time I look in the mirror I am NOT wearing my glasses. That helps to get through the shock and horror of it all. 

Obviously I am not a large contributor to the industry.

Michael you mean you do not trim your mustache and beard? Or use coloring? What about bleach blond hair? In my market there are a great many men who spend time in front of the mirror too:)) in fairness to disclosure I do not.... I just  wear a hat and dark shades:))Endre

Michael, that still doesn't include the makeup some women keep in their cars so they can get pretty while driving to work, talking on the phone  and sipping their coffee.  Must have arms like an octopus

I am hoping that since it is two vanities, all of the "stuff" belongs to multiple women!

Hi Michael.  I don't think all those beauty products helped that person.

Houston, we have a problem.  That scene has nothing to do with beauty.

Hi Michael,  I think maybe she needs some more cabinets to hide all that beauty.

With all this stuff, I wonder if she looks like Tammy Faye Baker! One thing is for sure, her bathroom counter is not beautiful.
