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!

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!
