Mirror Mirror On the Wall, Who’s the fairest of them all?

Apparently not Cardiff according to a survey which revealed the amount that students spend on cosmetics by university.


According to a survey Cardiff students spend a lot less than you’d think on cosmetics than students at other universities.

It found that Cardiff’s students spend a lowly £261.02 on cosmetics every year, which is a drastic difference to the top dogs at the University of Lancaster, who spent a whopping £1109.43.

Now, as a self-proclaimed cosmetic addict, my bank statement can quite clearly show that I spend way more than the average Cardiff University Student. But as personal experience has shown me I am not alone.  On any night out the majority of girls are often wearing more make-up than clothes, and I am constantly fighting my way to mirrors in club bathrooms. (First world problems right there).

Maybe they're naturally this colour after all?

But judging by this lot at Lancaster, I feel like there is a good reason they need to spend so much. Maybe Cardiff students just possess more natural beauty?
