Fashion Math: Is $27 For A Red Designer Lipstick Worth The Splurge?

January 28, 2010 by Tara Trombetta

I can think of a lot of things I could spend $30 on: drinks with my girlfriends, a pair of earrings, a new swimsuit even. But a lipstick? Lipstick only lasts two years, at most. This shade, in particular–a balanced, shiny, bull’s eye red–is not your everyday lipwear. It’s best reserved for the evening and weekends, or daywear, perhaps, if you work in a creative industry. It’s certainly not for the board room. So is this purchase worth it? Let’s do the Fashion Math:


If you wear Givenchy’s Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Absolutely Irresistible Red ($27) twice a month (allowing for one reapplication mid-wear),  you’ll only pay $.28 a wear. Just pocket your change from a morning latte and by the end of the month you’ll have enough to splurge on this decadent makeup.

Have fun with our other fashion math posts, and before you leave, don’t forget to check out these balms to keep your lips soft and these Valentine’s Day gifts we like enough we’d buy them for ourselves.
