While going through the countless number of emails this morning I came across an email from Chanel about their limited edition Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipstick. Being a huge fan of Chanel, and sheer lipstick, I was instantly excited to learn more. That is until I found the price; $32. I haven't bought a Chanel lipstick in so long I apparently forgot how much they cost. So even though the new lipstick had really fab shades only Chanel can come up with, as well as fun names such as Rebelle (a true rebel red), the reality of paying $32 for a single lipstick set in (plus shipping).
I think that no matter your financial situation right now the fact is that the economy is still in the dump for the most part. This is even more true depending what part of the US, or the world, you live in. So after seeing the debates over the debt ceiling, knowing the possibility that my family's 401k may tank because of the US credit rating and then factoring in a high price of $32 plus tax and shipping for a single lipstick, I started to seriously wonder is it really worth the price? My vote for now is a firm "no", but what say you? Is there any way under the sun that you will drop $32 for a lipstick right now? Leave a comment and weigh in!
