How much does my face cost? The answer will surprise you. Makeup adds up and for people that are passionate about cosmetics like us, it’s A LOT!
Here is what I did;
After I slapped my face on this morning for work, I snapped a pic of my mug and the products I used.
I put an * beside the products I got in my subscription boxes, but I factored in the product amount to get the final total. But if you were wondering, the amount from the subscription boxes came to $131. O_o WOW saved some bucks there!
I also separated the brushes, why? I don’t know, I like categorizing stuff HAHA

Puts it into perspective doesn’t it? HOLY POO! Next time I have to have something, I will think of this. It probably won’t stop me but I’ll have it in the back of my mind as I skip home with my new palette :)
If I added up the total amount of all my makeup I might have a stroke...so I won’t do that.
I tag you guys to do this and link me back so I can see!
