Pretty Price Check [04.01.11]

The Pretty Price Check: Your Friday round-up of what we paid for beauty last week.

  • $72: What you’ll pay for this insane night bra, which separates and moisturizes your cleavage to prevent wrinkles. You know I couldn’t not include this. (Via The Hairpin)
  • 29: The age when most women start to feel old, according to a new survey. Of course, men don’t feel old until they’re 58. As someone who is just 30 days away from not being 29 ever again, I call bullsh*t on this whole thing. (Via MyDaily)
  • 500 hours: How long it took to make Lady Gaga’s 14-inch high platform boots. That’s only 100 hours less than I spent in beauty school! Best part: “The boots have flying unicorns and rainbows and say ‘Born This Way.'” So, there’s your Friday Happy Hour chatter sorted. (Via The Cut)
  • 1 in 3 women feel more confident when their “armpits are in good condition.” This stat from a WSJ story about how Dove is “tackling the ugly underarm” but I’m choosing a glass-half-full interpretation: 2 in 3 women (in other words, the vast majority) don’t let their pits determine their worth as human beings. This, my friends, is what we call progress. (Via Jezebel.)
  • 43 percent: The decrease in liposuction procedures performed since 2000. Yet weirdly, boob jobs are up 40 percent. I have no idea what to make of either of these facts. (Via Jezebel.)
  • $12,275: What a Mary Kay Lady can expect to pocket, assuming she can move a whopping $50,000 worth of product per year. (Via PinkTruth)

PS. Fat Talk is bad for you. Like, for real now. So hush up, you’re pretty already!

  1. I’ll be 30 in September and, yes, I’ve been having some freak-outs about it, but not because I feel old. And during my calmer moments (which are becoming more and more frequent lately), I feel much more comfortable in my skin, more self-confident, and much happier with myself overall. So I’m with you in calling BS on this one.
