How much is my face worth? Post New York Edition


I did this post for the first time back in October, I think (you can read it here) and it was kind of shocking to total up the entire price of my day to day face! Not that it changed anything because popped over the pond to America and went a little bit crazy in Sephora, then a couple weeks later my Mum set off for the Big Apple too with a list in hand of things I hadn't managed to grab. And then there was Christmas... So, needless to say, December saw my collection grow in quite an exciting but slightly worrying way.

However now that I've had all of the products for a little while, I've found my favourites and settled on the ones I use daily. Here we go, lets prepare ourselves...

Anyway in order of application;


Chanel // Vitalumiere Satin Foundation - £36

Nars // Creamy Radiant Concealer - £22.00

Benefit // Hoola Bronzer - £23.50

Daniel Sandler // Watercolour Blush - £14.50

Becca // Shimmering Skin Perfector - £29.50

Rimmel // Stay Matte Powder - £3.99



Anastasia // Dip Brow Pomade - £15

Billion Dollar Brows // Brow Duo Pencil - £20

Billion Dollar Brows // Brow Gel - £17

MAC // Warm Neutrals Palette - £65

Barry M // Dazzle Dust - £4.59

Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner - £6.00

Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - £19.00

MAC // Verve - £15.50

The grand total £291.58

Well... I don't quite know what to say! I mean, I don't use all 15 shades from the MAC palette every day, well I never use them all, mainly just 3, 4 max, So if we say that each of those shadows are worth £4.30 each (£65 divided by 15)  then I can shave £47 off that total, or if we say they're worth £10 (the price of the refills) then I can knock £110 off! That's not so bad. Not so bad at all.

Next time I'll do it based on what my face is worth on a night out because I reckon that is so much more! All the extra glitter and the false eyelashes, that's going to whack the total right up! Have you done the 'what does my face cost' tag yet? If so, link it in the comments, I'd love to read some and hopefully make myself feel a little better, I can't be the only one with almost £300 of products on my daily face!

Love always,
Melissa

  1. This was a great read and a interesting idea, I feel like the pricey makeup products for me only fall in the base category otherwise I am a drugstore junkie.

  3. I've done a drugstore edition of this tag as I wanted to ser how much of a difference it would be and I was surprise! The difference was huge obviously which I was expecting but I wasn't expecting that total cost either! I thought it would have been a little less haha :) As I've started a new blog it might be fun to do it again! Btw, your editing kills me everytime, it's so perfect!

  4. I love the idea of figuring out how much your face is worth! I think if the makeup is high quality and you use it, then it's probably worth it.

  5. I've never even started to do such terrifying math but the comforting thought is that if used daily all of this stuff would last for so long to bring down the cost per use ratio to a really reasonable price ;) xx
