However, according to a new study from QVC Beauty, the amount of time women spend staring at their reflection may be surprising.

According to the Daily Mail, the study found that British women stare at their reflections for an average of five hours a day. Additionally, the papers revealed that ladies from the U.K. use more than 880 gallons of foundation and 16 millions sweeps of a mascara wand.

"Beauty products have the power to make people feel good about themselves," QVC Beauty head buyer Kate James told the news source, adding, "Beauty is an area which modern women feel passionately about."

While these statistics may be staggering to some, women looking to cutdown on the amount of time they spend in front of the mirror may want to use an acrylic-based tubing mascara. The product won't smudge or flake, so gals won't have to worry about touching up their makeup throughout the day.
