How Much Does My Face Cost?

I really love reading these posts and thought it was about time I did one of my own. For those of you who don't know, this is where you add up how much the make-up that you wear on your face everyday costs you, and it's really interesting to find out. Now for me, this won't be completely accurate because I change up my make-up look everyday but for the sake of this post I'm showing you one of my fuller coverage looks but one that I still like to wear in the daytime. I've included brushes in this (whether you're meant to or not I don't know but hey ho) and I've linked all the products for you as well. So lets see how much my face is worth today...

- Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream (to prime) £6.99
- Covergirl Clean Whipped Foundation £3.84
- Maybelline Superstay 24hr Concealer £6.19
- Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer £7.99
- Rimmel Stay Matte Powder £3.99
- Bourjois 'Chocolate' Bronzer £6.99
- Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush £7.99
- MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in 'Adored' £22

- Sleek Au Naturalle Palette (shade 'Bark' for brows) £7.99
- Maybelline Brow Drama £4.99
- Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner £10
- Miss Sporty Mini Me Eyeliner (for waterline) £2.59
- Maybelline Colossal Mascara £7.99

- Revlon Lip Butter in 'Strawberry Shortcake' £7.99

- Real Techniques Core Collection (Buffing Brush, Contour Brush, Detailer Brush) £20.99
- Bare Minerals Flawless Face Brush £19
- Boots Powder Brush £7
- Elf Studio Stipple Brush £3.75
- Elf Brow Wand £1.50

TOTAL = £159.77

Wow. I was not expecting that. A couple of things to mention here are that obviously all these products are used many many times and I like to use a mixture of high street and high end items and I expect them all to last (for example I've had this sleek product for ages now and haven't hit pan on any, not even my brow shade). But still, over £150 is a lot of money, and if I actually stopped and thought about how much I spent on make-up in a year, I might die a premature death. If you're interested in seeing one of these posts for a more light/natural look let me know and I'll get on it!
