Lip stick and depression

Whenever there is a recession lip stick sales go through the roof. In fact Revlon was founded in the Great Depression of the 1930's, it's aim was to make working class people happy.

The reason for this is that when times are hard people want small treats to brighten up their lives.

So in the current credit crunch expect sales of small pleasurable indulgence items such as chocolate, Champagne and lip stick to increase sales, while people look for a bit of sunshine in their lives during these dark and gloomy times.
