So – I’m listening to someone cite that old myth about women eating seven (7) pounds of lipstick a year and I decided to the math.
Lipsticks seem to range from .10 to .15 ounces each. So we’ll call it .125 ounces in an average lipstick tube.
7 lb. x 16 ounces = 112 ounces
112 ounces / .125 oz per lipstick = 896 lipsticks
Really? You’d have to buy and eat 896 lipsticks per year? Again – really?
I do not think we are eating 7 lbs. of lipstick a year and whoever came up with that needs to take a remedial math class.
We love you and Happy Valentine’s Day. Wear your lipstick proudly!
