Lipstick down, Botox Up.

Dubai newspaper The National is saying that American lipstick sales are going down, while Botox and Restylane are on the way up. This is in contrast to the former prevailing wisdom that lipstick sales boom during recessions, while supposed luxuries like cosmetic surgery wane.

From the article:

"But this time around, that is not happening. In 2008 annual lipstick sales actually dropped five per cent, according to Inside Cosmeceuticals, which tracks cosmetics purchases in the US and UK.

Now, it seems, Americans – both men and women – are splurging on a more modern luxury: cosmetic injections.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that surgical cosmetic procedures like nose jobs and tummy tucks dropped off nine per cent from 2007 to 2008. However minimally invasive procedures such as Botox, which eases wrinkles, and Restylane, which puffs up sagging skin, are up more than five per cent."
