Shopping is synonymous with breathing. It’s what keeps women fuelled after a day at work or school. It’s the perfect activity for girls to bond over sniffing new perfumes, trying on some new clothes, or just simply enjoying the day at their favorite coffee shop. Instead of paying for a complete vacation package for a quick getaway, retail therapy is an inexpensive way on how women can de-stress. It’s one way to have a good time with friends or a quiet time for themselves. While hunting for a newly opened much-awaited store or for a limited sale promo seems like a lot of fun, there are just some products women cannot resist buying. 1. Make-up Eye shadow, blush, mascara, lipstick, lip gloss, foundation, concealer, eyeliner – the list just goes on and on. Ask a friend if she has fully used-up a lipstick or an eye shadow. You won’t be surprised if she says no. The beauty industry (particularly those that focus on make-up) is considered as a recession-proof industry. Women just love collecting make-up in different colors and tones. It’s like hoarding colorful candies on sale without the intention of eating them. 2. Clothes Women have different preferences when it comes to fashion, but when we speak of a style that’s currently hot and trendy for the season, most women want a piece of it. See, being updated in the latest trends gives the person a sense of belongingness. Whether they’ll wear a piece of clothing once or a hundred times and make it as a basic garment, women will always have that spare change for clothes. 3. Perfumes Women like to smell and feel good about themselves. They want to be adored by men without even lifting a finger. Wearing perfume acts as a non-verbal cue, revealing one’s self to the other. One’s choice of perfume gives access to one’s personality: floral scent for a feminine and sweet lady or a heavy scent for more matured, established women. What’s great about these fragrances is that it’s easy to scout for discount perfumes which are branded and at the same time, genuine.
