Buying makeup is an expensive necessity for most of us, but how much money are we really spending on our face?
Well, after seeing this tag covered by many of my favourite beauty bloggers and feeling particularly inspired by Subtle Coral’s version, I decided to give it a go!
So I began the rather scary task of finding out how much my daily makeup routine was costing me! I’m rather glad this didn’t count my shameful and ever-growing makeup collection, because the results of this were pretty eye-opening! I also didn’t include skincare or makeup tools so my total is purely for the makeup products I would use on a day to day basis!
The products in this post are what I would normally use for glamorous (but not ott) everyday makeup. Though I must admit this makeup look is for the (sometimes rare) times when I listen to the alarm clock and get up early enough to put my full ‘face’ on!
So here it goes…
Smashbox Photo Finish More than Primer Blemish Control- £28.00
Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation in shade 3- £27.50
Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder- £6.99
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Shade 006 warm beige- £3.99
Collection Lasting Perfect Concealer in Shade 3 Medium £4.19
Sleek Blush in shade Rose Gold- £4.49
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (comes free with Urban Decay naked palette)
Urban Decay Original Naked Eyeshadow Palette £37.00
Loreal Volume Million Excess Mascara in Black £10.99
Rimmel Scandaleyes Lycra Flex Mascara in Black £6.99 (yes I feel I must use two mascaras…)
HD Brow Palette in Vamp £19.96
Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil in shade 061 Jet Black £2.99
Barry M Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Black- £5.49
Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in Peach Kiss £2.99
Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Lip Plumper £6.39
Grand Total: £167.96
Although my total is pretty terrifying. These products will (hopefully) last me a very long time so I should get my money’s worth! Also, the prices listed are at the standard RRP and I know I will have taken advantage of some store deals to get some of my products for cheaper than their full price!
I tag these bloggers and all you other lovely people to work out how much your face is worth! :
