It’s called the Lipstick Effect. It was coined by Leonard Lauder, chairman of Estee Lauder, in 2001 after sales of the cosmetic staple continued to climb amidst a severe downturn in the economy in the wake of 9/11. According to a New York Times article earlier this year, Lauder says when the economy is shaky “sales increase as women boost their mood with inexpensive lipstick purchases instead of $500 sling backs.” Tools and lipstick couldn’t be further apart. They’re polar opposites, like caviar and grits. But they do have one thing in common.
