How Much Does Your Face Cost? A TAG...kinda...

by - June 13, 2012

I saw this tag by ettuandyou on Youtube and thought wow that is a cool idea.

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

My face:

    1. Do it! LOL I certianly did a double take as I was adding it up.

  2. It's quite amazing how a "natural" look could cost so much.. I'm interested in looking into mine..but I'm not sure mine's NEARLY as expensive. ;)

    Oh, and I LOVE quo brushes!

    1. No kidding! It is a good thing that makeup last a long time, well most items. Otherwise I'd be using the 5 same products everyday! I like the Quo blush brushes. I have some crease brushes that are kind of pokey LOL I bought one and it was pokey so I bought another one thinking it was just THAT brush but no the crease brushes are pokey.

  3. Oh my gosh! That is crazy!! I'm kind of scared to add up the cost of all the makeup/beauty products I own now! Maybe some time I should though to scare myself into not purchasing anything more!

    1. Believe me, just the cost of this everyday FOTD made me do a double take. No way will I do a complete inventory O_o uhuh!
