How Much Is My Face Worth Tag!

Today I have a a really fun but still beauty related blog post for you all that I have been thinking about doing even before I owned my little blog. The 'How Much Is My Face Worth' Tag was first introduced to me by a renowned beauty blogger and vlogger, Sprinkle Of Glitter who uploaded a similar post onto her blog about two years ago and it has stuck in my head since.

The aim of this tag is to total up the costs of all the products you use on your face, wether it be for a specific night out, a celebrity inspired make up tutorial or in my case just your typical 'face of the day'. Obviously, I know I don't use a whole bottle of foundation on my face at a time because that would just be both ridiculous and incredibly expensive as well as maybe slightly impossible but this is only a bit of fun and to be honest I don't even know how I'd go about working out the exact measurements and costings of each product I apply on a daily basis. 

Base And Face
Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser £23
Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch £26
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Mont Blanc £31 
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer Vanilla £22
Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Light £22
                             =  £124

All About The Eyes 
Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade Dark Brown £15
By Terry Ombre Blackstar Frozen Quartz £28 
Lancôme Artliner Liquid Eyeliner Noir £20
Estée Lauder Pure Colour Duo Pencil Eyeliner Blackened Black/ Blackened Cocoa £16
Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara Black £7.99
                              =  £86.99

Compliment And Colour That Complexion 
Mac Alluring Aquatic Extra Dimension Bronzer Aphrodite's Shell £24
Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Soft & Gentle £23
Mac Limited Edition Highlighting Powder Crew £14 (from Cohorted
Dior Addict Gloss Venus £22
                         = £83

The Grand Total = £293.99

The total actually made me feel a little sick at first sight and I know my everyday make up is a little high end heavy but I truly love every single product I use/own and even though I do like to change things up every now and then, these all always seem to be the products I always end up crawling back to. To  justify the incredibly high price tag I feel I need to explain that make up is my absolute passion and I'd rather sacrifice other materialistic things like clothes, accessories etc. for cosmetics. I can also vouch that the majority of the high end products I own often last a considerable amount longer then a lot of my drugstore products due to their long-lasting formulas and amazing pigmentations. 

I may do some more of these in the future (especially a drugstore version!) as I do change up my products quite often especially during different seasons, for events or just for the hell of it!

I would love to know how much your face is worth, especially if it is as costly as mine as then I may feel slightly less guilty! If you do end up doing this tag please notify me in the comments below.

  1. Wow, really enjoyed this type of post. Makes you think about how much we actually use on make-up but like you said you love every single product so it is worth it in the end :)
