I love watching people do “Tags” on YouTube and I was thinking the other day whether or not this would successfully translate into a Blog post, as sometimes I feel as though there are certain things that are just more interesting to watch than reading.. but then I saw over on Louise from Sprinkle of Glitters blog and Hello Terri Lowe that they had both done them as blog posts so decided to follow suit.
So without further ado, lets start adding up how much it costs for my face to look like “my face” …
(as a disclaimer – these are the items I use on a regular basis, I havent pulled any items out because they are more expensive/less expensive, I literally just wrote down what I’d applied in the morning – no cheating/boasting/bragging)
Benefit Porefessional Primer £23.50
Max Factor XPerience Weightless Foundation £9.99
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer £4.19
L’Oreal Lumi Magique Highlighting Pen (undereyes) £8.49
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Light £21.00
MAC Paint Pot in Barestudy £14.50
MUA Heaven & Earth Palette £4.00
Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen £5.00
Maxfactor Volume Million Lashes Mascara £10.99
HD Brow Palette in Vamp £19.00
Vivo Baked Blusher Cinnamon Glow £4.00
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm in Honey £5.99
Total Price – £130.65
Is that bad? Its alarming to me that a face of makeup for a day costs £130.65 – (based on cost per wear I’d like to point out that this would cost considerably less!) but even more so is that in actual fact this is an absolutely tiny % of my makeup collection. I could do a completely different face of makeup using completely different products about 5 x over which leads me to believe I’ve spent close to a £1,000.00 on my makeup collection. EEK – I feel like Carrie Bradshaw in that episode of Sex & the City where she works out she spent £40,000.00 on shoes and has nowhere to live… “I am literally the old woman who lived in her shoes” – but you can’t live in an eyeshadow palette, right?
