How Much is My Face Worth?

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

I've seen this makeup tag floating around some blogs recently and thought it would be fun to do too! 
You never know how much you've really spent until you sit down and look at the price tags. To do this tag, you basically do your makeup and show what you've used and the total of how much everything cost. Scary.... 0_0

I normally wake up extra early every morning before work to do my makeup (you'll see why below).. sometimes there would be days when I would wake up later than usual and I rush it. Either way, I can't leave the house without something on...

This was my look for work today. Since I work in a corporate building, I don't wear a lot of different colors and I tend to stick with neutral tones. Once in a while I might add some purples or create some smokey eyes.

Here is everything that I used to create that look above!

I use this spray at the very end when I'm done putting on my makeup. This helps keep my makeup set and less oily through-out the day.

2. MUFE HD Foundation - in 123 Desert $42
My favorite foundation for my oily combination skin type. 

3. MUFE HD Microperfecting Primer - 0 Neutral $34
Great light-weight and oil-free primer.

4. UD 24/7 Concealer Pencil - FBI (under eyes) & NSA (blemishes) $18 each
Love my concealers! I can't live without them. 

I use this for redness around my nose and sometimes under my eyes for more coverage.

6. Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow - Bad to the Bronze $6.99
My favorite color to use out of the whole color tattoo collection.

7. Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter - Peach Parfait $7.49
Can't go wrong with this peachy color. 

8. MUFE Duo Mat Powder - in 202 Translucent Beige $34
I use this powder to set my liquid foundation and concealer.

9. NARS Bronzer - Laguna $34
Great to contour with on my cheeks/temple/chin/forehead.

10. L'Oreal Project Runway LE Blush - Watchful Owl $6.57
Nice peachy blush but was from an limited edition collection. 

Great everyday mascara to make my lashes appear fuller and non-clumpy.

12. UD Naked 2 Palette - $50
Perfect palette of neutral eyeshadows to use everyday!

13. Lancome Artliner Eyeliner - in Noir $29.50
Great liquid eyeliner that won't smudge on me during the day.

14. Lioele Auto Eyebrow Pencil - #3 Gray Black $14
Matches my natural brow color very well. Only can find/buy it on-line.

Forgot to pictureUD Primer Potion - in Original $20
Best eyelid primer ever!! I have several tubes of this!

TOTAL DAMAGE: $388.54!!! (Pre-Tax US Dollars)

OMG... I think my heart stopped just a little bit when I saw the total $$$$.. I *think* I added this up correctly.. And this is my everyday makeup routine too! Seriously.. no joke!! Not to mention I have several backups on some of these products esp my MUFE HD foundation and Duo Mat powder (my skin tone changes in seasons). I admit I am a product junkie.. maybe one day I'll show you guys my makeup storage. -_- Thankfully my hubby understands my love for makeup and doesn't really say anything.. ;)

  16. Pretty but expensive rock!!


  17. I never thought about that. But think about cost vs wear. How often do you buy them too. Anyways, you look pretty and I love how you apply them. Maybe you can do a make up tutorial post.


  18. That lovely make up on your beautiful face is worth every penny!!
    My skin is very sensitive to products so I do not use much make up- just eyeliner and lipstick on a daily basis!
    Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting!

  21. Beautiful photos !
    Love it

    -follow each?

  22. I haven't really calculate it. Great post and I love the Naked 2 palette.

    xo Jo

  23. I try not to think about the cost of my makeup because otherwise, I'd feel just a little bad! But let me think...

    1. Kiehl's under eye rollover stick - $20
    2. MAC liquid eyeliner pen - $18
    2. UD's Naked - $50
    3. Sephora's matte powder foundation - $25
    4. NARS's Orgasm/Laguna blush/bronzer duo - $48
    5. CoverGirl last blast mascara - $8
    6. Revlon lip butter - $8

    $177 isn't too bad, considering that my more expensive makeup lasts me quite a while. I use my Naked and Naked 2 every single day and both palettes are still going strong!

    Fantastic post, I think I'm itching to do a similar beauty post too!


  24. Interesting post! I am not much of a makeup person but I know brand name makeup products cost a fortune.

  25. love the idea of the post!
    very nice blog by the way ;)

    kisses from Russia,


  26. daaannng! lol Soooo expensive. But you know what, it's totally worth it, because one has to spend a decent amount, since it goes on the face you know.

  27. Following you now. Would love to follow each other. XO Jill

  28. PS - I love balancing out expensive products like NARS lipstick and powder with inexpensive products like my favorite CoverGirl mascara. XO

  29. I love this!!!! You should write more posts like this one. Great blog,and you have a huge potential,just keep up the good work
    Do you have time to check out my blog? I think you'd like it.And your opinion is important to me. this is my blog url

    maybe we can follow each other?

  30. Oh my goodness, that's terrifying! At least you're not using the entire bottles/containers of each of those things every day. You have to think that if all of those things last you only 2 months, that's less than $6.50 a day :) Still, I don't even want to try to add up my makeup costs... I'll get so freaked out that I won't wear ANY makeup for days!

  31. i'm admittedly terrible when it comes to beauty products. but it's nice to know what people use!


  32. omgosh this is so funny. i don't think i will do it... because i don't want to know HAHAHA. but your face looks soo gorgeous and flawless.. so i definitely think it's worth it! hahaha.. plus it's not like you buy everything ALL at one time.. and you don't use up ALL of the products w/ one application :p plus.. i personally think.. when you look your best you feel your best.. and make-up is cheaper than therapy HAHAHA :p

  33. Yep and that's why I always get excited to fine a great drug store find!!

  34. lol, what a great post! But I don't think I will be doing this any time soon because MY hubby wouldn't like it very much.... What he doesn't know wont hurt him right. ;)

  67. well that much spending on make up is definitely worth it because you look pretty!


  68. Great look and great blog! found you through blog hop!

  69. Really need to get my hands on Nars Laguna and Urban Decay Naked Palette 2. I have the first one and I love it so much but sure a girl can't ever have enough neutral shadows right? One more or 2 palette won't hurt. And so I keep telling/convincing myself. haha :D

  70. wow!! i haven't done this yet but i bet i'll be surprised when i add it all up! at least you look pretty...who cares how much the makeup costs? :) that's how i feel anyway...

  71. Lovely post and great choices! <3 I think I'm a little scared to do this and calculate it all! hehe :))


  72. Wow, amazing how much everything adds up to! I am currently using anastasia Beverly hills she wears it well palette, but I think I would like the naked palette, too!

    1. You should totally get the Naked palette, it's one of my favorites. :)

  73. WOW, i have never done this and it is very thought provoking.... i bet you never thought it was that MUCH!
    thanks for sharing.
