What’s your face worth?

Having read Laura from Lelore.com post on the price of her make-up contents, I was intrigued to see what my face was “worth”. My post is based on a weeks worth of makeup that I use day to day. I for some reason find it hard parting with my money when it comes to purchasing make-up, but when I buy clothes it just flitters away… is that just me?! I don’t tend to spend too long on my make-up and I don’t really experiment much, but maybe this post will show me how bad I need to break these boundaries and just try more!


Clinique Stay Matte foundation – £22.50, Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder – £3.99, Benefit Hoola –£30 (sold as part of a gift set), Real Techniques Core Collection – £18.00, Bare Minerals Full Flawless Face – £24.00, Sleek contour pallete – £9.99, Revlon Colorstay concealer – £6.99

Face (cleansing routine):

LUSH Ultrabland – £7.25, LUSH Breath of Fresh Air toner – £7.95, Clinique Anti-Blemish, Cleansing Foam* – £17.00, Clinique Anti-Blemish Clarifying Lotion* – £18.00, Clinique Anti-Blemish All-Over Clearing Treatment* – £19.00, Origins Super Spot Remover Gel – £14.00


Maybelline Big Eyes – £8.99, Maybelline Volum’ Express* – £6.19, Clinique 06 Pink Quad – £7.99, Collection Fast Stroke eyeliner – £2.50


Collection Eyebrow Kit – £3.99, Benefit brow wax & tint – £18.50 (once a month)


Vaseline – £2.18, Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm – £7.99

Makeup bag: 

Betsey Johnson makeup bag – £25 (purchased as a set of 3)

Total: £274.52

I’m pretty surprised at how much it has actually totalled up to! I use a lot of high-street products as I’ve never really made the plunge to try out high end brands as I’m fairly money conscious and hate wasting things. I definitely plan on trying some high end make-up brands soon though, so any recommendations would be very welcome!

    love this post and the idea
    I don't use much make up, so I guess that's why my money mostly goes to clothing as well:)

    Love such posts, don't think I spend that much on my face, since I don't use so many products. – I think.

    it's surprising how much all of your makeup adds up to isn't it?! I'm actually thinking of doing a post like this but I'm a bit worried about what my face is worth! Haha x

    It's crazy to think how much we spend on makeup after reading this. I use a lot of similar products, so I'm intrigued to see how much my face is worth…I'll have to do this post at some point!

    I'm also running my first ever beauty giveaway on my blog right now if you fancy taking a look!

    it's such a funny thing to think of – how much the makeup you wear on a daily basis costs. i know it would be pretty expensive for me, especially if you added in skincare, but most products last for several months, if not several years so you're probably not using too much cost-wise every day. but i'd hate to think how much my whole makeup and skincare stash would cost if you added it all up!

    Wow, that's a pretty interesting post! I should calculate the price of my face products as well but I'm not sure I wanna know it xD

    this looks like so much fun! I'm interested to know how much my face is worth too! I was thinking of having a pop 'round to Boots to look at any new products to try out – I doubt I'd want to after writing a post like this though lol

    Your collection is lush, Hanna! I get so scared spending out on money, the most expensive thing I bought was a MAC foundation at £21.50 and I felt sick afterwards haha. You've definitely influences me to want to splash out a bit more though.
