How much is your face worth? TAG

This tag was inspired by Louise (or Sprinkle of Glitter as some of you may know her), who blogged it a day or so ago; Though I'd seen it done before, I'd forgotten about it until now - and seeing as I have nothing else to do on this fine, incredibly rainy and miserable day, I thought I'd give it a go!

The point is to add up the cost of all the makeup you put on your face in one look, and that's how much your face is then 'worth', or how much you spend on it in essence.

This is my usual everyday make up, so it's just the basics - I don't really wear heavy eye makeup or anything!

Face & Base:
Clinique Super City Block - £16
No7 Shine Free Primer - £11
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer - £4.19
Clinique Anti-blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup - £22
Soap & Glory Solar Powder - £11
Topshop Head Over Heels Blush  - £6

L'Oreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss - approx. £6.50
Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara - £2
Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara - £6.99

I don't use anything on my lips because they are so incredibly (and infuriatingly) sensitive, wah :(

That brings the total to £85.68 - which is actually pretty cheap, I'm impressed! Considering Louise's came to £198.49, I'd say I do pretty damn well at keeping things cheap haha :) 

The only trouble with seeing how that's actually quite cheap, is that I'm now thinking 'Hmmm, maybe I do deserve those luxury MAC, Nars or Liz Earle products that I've wanted for so long..' I have a feeling if I repeat this in a year or so, that price might dramatically go up! 

This was an interesting tag which I really enjoyed doing - have a go yourselves and either be disappointed in your own willpower, or realise you deserve a shopping trip!

  1. Wow! It came up to such a reasonable price, I've seen bloggers go up to £200!! But, I guess the money is worth it for some of the products! :) XX

    1. I know, I've decided I'm definitely going to treat myself next payday to some nice things haha!
      liv xx

  2. ooh that's good! not extremely expensive. I'm so scarred to do this, I don't want to know how much my face cost LOL

    1. I was quite pleased with how little it was! I think the fact that I don't use any lip products helped a lot :) Liv xx

  3. I love posts like this- very interesting.. But that came out to be a very good price..
