How much does my face cost?

how much does my face costInspired 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

Make up

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.
