I saw this tag post, ages ago, possibly before I even started writing this blog and thought it was such a clever idea. My make-up collection hasn’t gotten out of control and I wouldn’t yet call it an obsession, but I thought it would be so interesting to calculate the total cost of my day to day face. Especially since I’m going to New York next month and will most likely purchase a bunch of products that I’ve been lusting over but are a little too pricey on this side of the pond! The comparison might be fun to do when I’m back.
So here goes:
Claris Daily Energiser Cream (I use it as a primer) – £21.00
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation – £31.00
Real Techniques Buffing Brush – £21.99 (Part of Core Collection)
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer – £7.99
Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer – £7.99
Real Techniques Blush Brush – £9.99
Naked Basics – £21.99
MAC 217 – £18.00
Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner – £6.00
Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – £19.00
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder – £3.99
That’s a total of: £168.94
To be honest, that’s not so bad! I prepared myself for it to be worse to be honest. Considering I have a few fairly expensive pieces like the Nars Foundation and Two Faced Mascara that’s not too bad. During the week when I have to do my make-up before dashing out the door I try to use the same thing for more than one step in my routine, for instance, I use the Naked basics for my eyeshadow and eyebrows so that cuts the cost slightly I guess!
I’d be interested to know how much it comes to on the weekend when I have more time to be creative with my make-up. Maybe I’ll do that next! I’d love to know what your daily face costs too, is it more expensive than mine?
