Estee Lauder chairman Leonard Lauder created the “lipstick index” during the economic downturn following September 11, 2001.

In the retrospective study, the researchers analyzed the data of 2,159 adults (mean age 77.9, 54 percent female participants, 88 percent white) from the 2021 and 2022 National Health and Aging Trends Study.
