A Lipstick Jungle

With all the talk of Lipstick Politics in the press this week, Governor Sarah Palin and Senator Barrack Obama, with a little help from the news media of course, may have stoked an often-ignored TrendTrack…


Lipstick sales skyrocket in tough economic times. If we compare lipstick sales to the annual GDP throughout the past decades we see that the lipstick industry blossoms in harsher economic climates.

It’s hard to believe that lipstick could be considered as alternative nutrition when food prices skyrocket, right?

Indeed, but what lipstick does in fact feed is the age-old purchasing appetite. When a woman, and even a man, walks into a store, she, and he, can purchase a tube of designer lipstick without blowing a hole in his or her wallet. Designer duds are probably on the short list of live-without’s this year, but designer lipstick is surely in vogue and also in reach.

Trend Tip: Lips over Hips when the market Dips!

And now that putting lipstick on pets, pit-bulls and pigs a like, is so popular, the industry is probably projecting a very active fourth quarter. So can we expect to see Palin Pink hit the counters this holiday season?


I start this blog on the anniversary of the 9-11 Terrorist Attacks in celebration of all the trenders, trail blazers, and troops that propel and protect our great nation and the world.
