Tag - How much is your face worth?

Hi everyone,
Today I thought I’d do another tag post, this is one of my favourite ever tag posts to read due to the fact that I am a massive nosey parker and I love seeing what products people actually wear on there face in comparison to just endless reviews of beauty products. Therefore I did my normal face of makeup and thought I’d see how much my face would cost. I've been reading these posts lots on other peoples blog and couldn't believe how much people's face's actually added up to, but seeing my own actually made me realise it adds up really quickly and before you know it you've spent a whole ton of money on makeup really quickly! Anyway on to the post...


Soap and Glory the righteous body butter – 500ml - £10.99
Autograph Enhancing Radiance Primer – 30ml - £12.99
Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation – 30ml - £24.00
Collection 2000 – Lasting Perfection Concealer - £3.99
Max factor Infinity Compact - £11.99
Bourjois Bronsing Powder - £6.99
Soap and Glory - Love at First Blush Blusher - £11.99
Elf Eyebrow Kit – Medium - £3.75

Face worth: £84.69

Urban Decay Primer Potion - £14.50
Urban Decay Smokey Pallet - £35.00
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eyeliner - £13.00
Benefit they’re real mascara  - £18.00
MUA Gel eyeliner - £3.00

Eyes Worth: £83.50

Kate Moss Shade 2 Lipstick - £5.99

Lips Worth: £5.99

Altogether face worth: £174.00!!!

I was actually quite shocked, I didn't realise that all of my beauty products would add up to such a large amount of money. Of course, althought it sounds really bad it isn't as bad as what it seems because a lot of these products have lasted me a really long time, for example my primer and moisturiser have lasted me since christmas time, so has my eyebrow kit, my bronzer and blush will last a long time, and my eyeshadow pallet won't run out anytime soon so if you worked out how much these products would cost me to use on a daily basis it wouldn't be half as much but still! it shows you just how expensive makeup is and the huge cost surrounding it. Definately given me something to think about. Although on some people's blogs i've seen this post go in the excess of £300.00 which is truly ridiculous, at least i'm not this bad. Definately made me think though because the majority of my products are from the drug store so imagine how much someones face would cost if they had lots of mac and bobby brown products!

Anyway hope you enjoyed this post,
And thank you for your continued support
Lots of Love
