How Much Is My Face Worth?

Mood: Tired
Listening to: Booyah- Showtek

Hello beautiful bloggers!

I've had a little bit of writers block lately and have found it hard to come up with different post ideas, but I saw this tag and had to do it! Basically all you do is add up all the amount of money of all the make-up/skincare you're wearing on your face. I bet most of you will be surprised with the amount we spend on our faces, so I challenge anyone who wants to try this tag to do it.

So here goes nothing!

Foundation: Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow = £25.50
Concealer: Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in 02 light = £3.99
Mascara: Le Volume De Chanel = £24.00
Skin Brightener: MAC Strobe Cream (Travel Size) = £12.50
Moisturiser: Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser = £19.25
Eyeshadows: MAC's Satin Taupe & Naked Lunch = £25.00 
Eyebrows: Matte Eyeshadow used from Sleek, Storm Palette = £7.99
Bronzer: Bourjois' Delice de Poudre = £6.99
Blusher: MAC's Mineralize blusher in Dainty = £20.00
Eyeliner: Maybelline Gel Eyeliner = £7.99
Lipstick: elf Lipliner and Blend Brush in Fuchsia = £3.75
Lips: Vaseline Pocket Size Tin = £1.99
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Powder = £3.99

Total Amount = £162.94

I actually can't believe how much make-up costs and when it's all added together it looks even worse! I used a range of high end and high street/drugstore products today and it's still a hefty amount of money with a mixture of both.
I understand that you don't use all of the product in one use, so it doesn't cost that much every time you use it, but it does put in to perspective of how much you actually spend on make-up. I for one, spend far too much money each month on make-up and beauty products and it's not until the end of the month and I look at all of my products I've realised I've spent around £200 on beauty items.

I've tried to be good this month and resisted buying so many products but I have to say even though I've bought a few products I haven't gone overboard like I usually do.

I hope you've all had a great week, and I encourage you all to do the How Much Is My Face Worth Tag.

Love from Bethan
