    What I hate about this video is that not every woman has 5,000 dollars
    worth of makeup

      @Hawa Bizan , And if you wanted to paint something in self expression.
      Paint cost money, Canvas isn’t cheap. Maybe you should find more frugal
      ways of self expression before you bully someone like that.

      +Deimos Phob Well the actually median pay of a sociologist is about $72,500
      a year on average. That’s pretty good. But a social worker makes about
      $42,000 a year on average. I mean it isn’t really large, but it would be
      enough for a family if the spouse worked, too. As for a therapist, it
      varies a lot, because of the type you are, your location, and the amount
      and type of clients you have.

      three to four a year tbh

    • Lydian Quinn

      October 6, 2016 at 1:31 am

      Yeah, I think another important factor is what you use to shave with, like
      shaving cream, soap, conditioner, etc. It all affects the blade differently
      I think

    I don’t wear makeup, I curl/straighten my hair maybe once or twice a year,
    and shampoo lasts WAY longer than conditioner. lol I always run out of
    conditioner first. And do people really spend 115$ on perfume?! Bath and
    body works costs 14$ for a big bottle of perfume.

    • oh.reallly

    • Mariam Tsilosani

      October 19, 2016 at 4:36 pm

      If you want a nice perfume with an amazing smell, long lasting and a good
      quality then yes, you will spend $115 or even more sometimes. Just because
      Bath and body works has $14 perfume doesn’t mean everyone will like it, I
      personally am very sensitive to smell and can’t stand cheap perfume on me
      or on anyone else. As for makeup and hair styling everyone is different,
      some women decide to look nice and presentable on daily bases and some
      prefer doing it once or twice a year, it’s only preference.

    • anothertwentyonepilotsfan

      Mariam Tsilosani why is wearing makeup make you look “presentable”? Alicia
      Keys doesn’t wear makeup but she looks amazing. I understand the cheap
      perfume thing. I totally hate bath and body works perfumes.

    They should do the cost of being a woman of color, the number of steps
    would increase.

    • leah craft

      October 8, 2016 at 5:17 pm

      lol, right, and a good foundation at that!

    • KatieLouGaming

      October 14, 2016 at 12:36 am

      I have a hard time finding the right color foundation for the opposite
      reason. I’m so pale that usually the lightest tone they have is too yellow
      or too beige.

    • leah craft

      October 14, 2016 at 1:22 am

      awww 🙁

      November 23, 2016 at 9:57 pm

      Kat von D has a really pale one, it even was too pale for me or you can buy
      manic panics white foundation and mix with your foundations, I usually do
      that because I’ve spent so much money on foundations that is too dark for
      me haha :). I dont know any good dark foundations though :/ I think Kat von
      D has some darker shades too but Im not sure.

      The way I interpreted this video was how much women have to spend in order
      to be considered attractive. IDK if that was the purpose of this video. But
      anyway, so many people expect women to do so many things to look
      attractive, and it really adds up.

    • Coconut

      October 25, 2016 at 10:17 am

      oh? Like, deodorant , shampoo, toothpaste, or bra? Or perhaps a hair dryer
      if you live north? Or maybe a comb or face moisturizer?

    • Natalie Bartlett

      October 25, 2016 at 5:21 pm

      No like makeup hair products etc.

  11. bethbisme

    October 10, 2016 at 4:48 am

    Wait she had a $500 dollar jacket and a $89 dollar bra. I wouldn’t say
    that’s how much the “average” woman spends on singular clothing pieces.

    • bethbisme

    pretty sure u don’t just buy one box of tampons a year LOL

    • Juulia Veera

      December 5, 2016 at 7:40 pm

      +Rotming okay i have to admit i know one person who tried a cup but went
      back to tampons because she didn’t like the cup. but i would still say most
      of the people who use tampons do so because they don’t know that there is a
      better option (for most of the people) out there 🙂 ofc there are always
      preferences, i know i was exaggerating it on my first comment because i was
      assuming there are people who don’t know about the cup.

      and yeah i’m finnish but not sure what it has to do with anything?

    • Rotming

      December 5, 2016 at 7:48 pm

      +Juulia Veera ei sil kait mitää väliä ois ollu mut oltais voitu pitää
      keskustelu suomenkielellä. En viittiny ruvet puhumaa suomea jollet ois
      kuitenkaa ymmärtäny nii siks kysyin

    • Juulia Veera

      December 10, 2016 at 4:24 pm

      So that no one else would understand? 🙂

    • Rotming

      December 11, 2016 at 6:25 pm

      +Juulia Veera Exactly 😉

    • Dimertri

      October 22, 2016 at 4:25 am

      This is true. I have friends that whine about the cost of all that crap and
      how bad their skin is… just go without, it’s not a requirement.

    • Ghea Casanova

      November 14, 2016 at 1:55 am

      Lorgina i rather buy skin treatment product.

    • Mack Vale

      November 14, 2016 at 5:56 am

      Yeah, but I actually LIKE using makeup. I just buy the cheapest I can find

  15. Abigail “whoops”

    October 17, 2016 at 6:06 pm

    I buy way more than 6 bottles of conditioner year

    November 11, 2016 at 3:15 am

    um… the “average” women goes to the drugstore and picks up the best 10$
    foundation possible. $20-$30 if you feel fancy. I mean yeah, maybe if you
    decided to splurge that month or whatever but I dont think the “average
    women” spends that much on foundation or the other products listed. At
    least I don’t know anyone….. maybe the “average” upperclass women.

  17. TereziLovesCandyRed

    November 26, 2016 at 9:07 pm

    Why spend $115 on perfume?!

      And fewer paid working hours and a harder time getting to stable, high
      position, well-paying jobs.
