How much is my face worth?

I've seen this tag on many famous beauty blogs such as Sprinkle of Glitter and I wanted to try it for myself! In case you haven't seen this tag before, it involves you totting up the cost of all of your everyday beauty products. I was actually surprised at my results compared to the other ones I'd seen!

Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in Fair - £4.19 
I love this concealer - I know, I know, who doesn't? Just simply doesn't compare to high end ones, especially not for the price.

L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Powder in Light (just to set my concealer) - £6.99 
I bought this on special offer in Boots when it had just been released. I've never tried another setting powder before this one so I can't compare it, but I know I'll be checking out the Rimmel Stay Matte powder when this runs out.

Garnier Moisture Match 'Wake Me Up' Moisuriser for Dull Skin - £5.99 
I have normal-dry skin and a tiny dab of this goes a very long way to perk up any patchy areas.

Sleek Face Form Kit in Light - £9.99
I don't use the highlighting powder in the middle as I prefer cream or liquid ones, but I love the contouring shade and the Rose Gold blush!

Topshop Glow in Polish - £9.00 
I love this highlighter. Topshop has produced some gorgeous products recently and this is definitely a favourite of mine. I like to mix this with the Garnier Moisture Match moisturiser for a more subtle day-time glow.

L'Oreal Superliner Black Lacquer liquid eyeliner - £6.49
This just pipped my Maybelline gel eyeliner to the post! I use both on a daily basis but if I was stuck on a desert island and someone said I could only have one, I'd choose the L'Oreal one simply because of its staying power.

Mac Extended Play Gigablack Lash mascara - £14
There's a lot of hate for Mac mascaras in the beauty blogosphere. I wish this mascara had more exposure because it is AMAZING. I have hideous short stumpy thick eyelashes and this mascara has the most incredible lengthening effect, but it still looks fairly natural. This is definitely my holy grail mascara.

Maybelline Master Shape brow pencil in Soft Brown - £2.99
I love this pencil simply for its subtlety. As a very dark pale brunette, I cannot rock bold brows to save my life! This is just good for more dramatic evening looks when my eye makeup can sometimes have a shrinking effect on my brows. Or if I've over plucked them in a rush...

Laura Mercier eyebrow pencil in Warm Brunette - £15.50
I have a weird little gap in my left eyebrow and I just use this for filling the gap in. Otherwise it looks like I've shaved a little slit in my eyebrow! I have no idea how that happened, it's just the way they naturally grow I suppose.

Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle (not pictured - oops!) - £6.99
I was really late to the trend with these. Now I'm a total convert! I prefer them to lipstick if I'm completely honest!

And the grand total is... £82.13
I was a bit shocked at first - I had no idea just my basic everyday makeup added up to so much! However, all of the other how much is my face worth tags I've seen add up to £200+ so I guess I'm quite economical about my daily products!

Have you done this tag? Have you tried any of these products before?

  1. Hi! I have nominated you for the Lliebster Award xxx Like Literally Obsessed

    1. Thank you! This was such a lovely surprise to come home to :D I'm working on the tag questions as we speak :) xxx

  2. Just wondering...have you tried the seventeen stay time concealer, it's quite a lot like lasting perection?


    1. No, haven't heard of it either actually but I'll have a look next time I'm in Boots :) I do quite want to get the Phwoarr Paint concealer though xxx

  3. I love this tag! Always interesting to add everything up, though it can be a bit of a shock! x

    Evelyn @ We Were Raised By Wolves

    1. I love it too, I had no idea just my everyday items cost so much! Thanks for the comment :) xx

    1. Thank you, I thought it was ok but I did narrow it down quite a bit! You should do it, I'd love to read it :) xx

  5. omg htats not bad at all!!! this is a really cool tag! can't wait to see how much other ppls faces cost hahahah

    1. Haha thank you :) you should do the tag too! xx

  6. I love love love lip butters. They're moisturizing, light and some of them are super pigmented! I love the Korres Lip butters, but the price is sometimes a turn off, so I will look for revlon in the future!

    Come visit sometime! Found you through the blog hop!!!

    Red Lips & Rosewater

    1. They're definitely amazing! There's a decent colour range as well. I wish Korres was slightly cheaper!

      Thank you for your comment, I didn't think the Blog Hop thing would actually be helpful for networking with other bloggers but I guess I was wrong :) xx

  7. I really want to try some of the makeup from Sleek, I can't believe I haven't yet! The Face Form palette sounds great, I like powder based highlighters too, so I'd probably get a lot of use out of it.

    Laura x | Life and Lipstick

    1. It's definitely worth it! However if you want a blush I'd recommend buying just the blush on its own as the ones in the Face Form palettes aren't nearly as pigmented as the standalone pans.


  8. ooooh I definitely need to do this calculation, although I'm slightly afraid! ;)


Hey, thank you in advance for commenting! :D I love reading and replying to each and every one of them, it's always nice hearing from people who've enjoyed my blog :) I disabled word verification to make it easier for you so go nuts! :') Have a lovely day xx
