How Much is My Face Worth?

     Hi Everyone! Hope you're all having a great week! I've been on a little hiatus of sorts, as my personal life has been very busy! We were down in Georgia for a while for my brother in law's military graduation. It was fun seeing him, as well as my mother in law again! Our kids had a great time too, it was our first big trip with them and they did great! I have some pics from the trip on my Instagram if you'd like to see! :) I thought I'd get back into the swing of things with the "How Much is my Face Worth?" tag. Lily from Beauty with Lily tagged me, and I've been excited to do it! As I'm sure with a lot of you too, what I wear differs greatly from day to day, and this is just what I happened to be wearing today. I'm wearing black leggings and a black shirt with a gray scarf, so I wanted to match my makeup with my outfit. Here goes:

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Primer - I wasn't sure how to price this, as this was a sample I received in my Ipsy bag. I got five things in my bag and paid $10 for it, so I'm giving this a value of $2
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Foundation - $38
  • Maybelline Fit Me Foundation (I mix this with the Tarte) - $5.94
  • Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer - $6
  • Elf HD Powder - $6
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - $3.97
  • Elf Contouring Blush and Bronzer (I used the bronzer for my contour) - $3
  • Covergirl Cheekers Blush in True Plum - $3.74
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion - sample size free with my Naked Palette
  • Urban Decay Naked Palette (I used Sin, Sidecar, Gunmetal, and Creep)- $50
  • Elf Eyebrow Kit - $3
  • Essence I <3 Rock Eye Liner - $0.99
  • Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara - $27
  • Wet n Wild Megalenth Waterproof Mascara (for bottom lashes) - $2.99
  • Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Plumrose - $5.49
Grand Total: $152.12

     Wow! This is actually quite a bit less than some of the other ladies' totals that I've seen! Even with switching up my makeup everyday, I'd say this is probably a good average of my day-to-day total, as I use mostly drugstore with a few high end products thrown in! This of course does not include skincare or tools.

     It seems that a lot of the blogs I read have done this tag, so I tag YOU to do this if you haven't yet! Please put a link to your blog in the comments if you do it, I'd love to see how much your face is worth!

     Have a wonderful day!

  1. You did really well price wise! How do you like that tarte foundation?

    1. Thanks Katie! The Tarte foundation - on it's own, it's too heavy/cakey for my dry skin, but mixed with something lighter like the Fit Me, it works really well. I didn't know when I bought it that was more for combination/oily skin. Tarte has a Maracuja foundation geared more toward dry skin that I want to try out.

  2. Loved seeing all of your IG pics, glad you had a good time!

    You did a great job with the price, and incorporating high-end and drugstore products! <3

  3. HAHA this was a fun read! is the maybeline fit me foundation any good :O ? i want to try it and i've already got the dream touch satin liquid and i love it!


    1. Thank you! I really enjoy the Fit Me foundation! It's a nice natural coverage when worn on it's own, and I also like mixing it with heavier foundations to make them less cakey.

  4. I done this tag too - and was so surprised at how much it came too - make up in the UK is soo expensive!
