Inspired by the lovely Nicole at The Glam Surge I asked myself how much my face costs. Not literally, but in terms of beauty and makeup products. I picked up the products I used on a single and created a beauty list for a simple, everyday look with pops of colour.
I believe it all adds up to around £300, but let’s see how right or wrong I am!
My beauty list
Dermalogica Cleanser * – £28
Dermalogica Active Moist moisturiser * – £39
Dermalogica Multi Vitamin eye cream* – £39
Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation | Review – £31
Lamora Foundation Brush – £25 (for the whole set)
Nars Radiant Creamy concealer – £22
MUA translucent powder – £3
Maybelline blush – £ 4.50
New Look contour powder kit | Review – £7
New Look highlighter | Review – £8
B Fan brush – £5
MAC Painterly eye primer – £16
Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette – £41 (IT’S BACK IN STOCK GUYS)
L’Oreal Fatale Mascara – £10
Chanel Lipstick in Edith 424 – £26
Adding it up: £304.50
I have to say I was pretty much right! I know this amount is more than my monthly rent but I really think it’s worth investing in yourself. For me great skincare is crucial and I can honestly see the effects on my face.
When it comes to make up, for me it is both a hobby and a passion. It’s a part of me I can’t live without, and it’s a choice, not an obligation. Just don’t ask me to calculate the total cost of my collection!
From my list you can see I have a good mix of high-end and drugstore products, some as cheap as £3. I think this beauty list is really representative of me. Yes, I love splurging on some lustworthy items. But I love equally much my drugstore make up, such as the L’Oreal mascaras. They really are the proof that sometimes drugstore really beats high-end!
Let me know if you’d be interested in seeing a post in my favourite high end products, and what products you don’t need to splurge on.
