How Much is My Face Worth?

Friday, March 13, 2015
*Inspired by the "How Much Is Your Face Worth?" tag & the blog post over at Lauren-Lee Grace*




I remember in middle school we were playing dodgeball (I always had a plan when it came to dodgeball... I would always stand outside the boundaries so I'd be sent to the bench before anyone would really actually throw something at me) I was on the bench and a good friend said they couldn't hit her in the face... her face was expensive. Granted she was kidding as though she had gotten work done on her face, but thanks to makeup... a person's face is freaking expensive. So I shall tally up the cost of my everyday wear (some lipsticks and such I alternate but we will just tally it all up). 

1. I always start off with a good primer, recently I've been using Revlon's Photo Ready Perfecting Primer $13.99
2. Next I go in with my trusty Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette for any blemishes $10.49
3. Next I go for Garnier's BB Cream (I just started using it this summer and it's my new fav) $12.99
4. My go to concealer is Cover Girl's TruBlend Fixstick (it's a life changer) $7.99
5. In the spring/summer I use bronzer, Benefit's Hoola Bronzer $28.00
6. If I still feel like I look tired or need a little brightener, I take Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment $8.99
**If I don't feel like wearing full coverage, I only use this with the Fixstick Maybelline's Fit Me Concealer $6.99**
7. Every girl needs a pop of color, I use Visible Lift Blush in Peach Gold Lift $9.99
8. To help it stay, I brush a little NYX Blush in Pale Peach over it $4.99
9. For my eyebrows, I use the shade Cool Gray from the Lorac Pro Palette 2, I also use the eye primer from it $42.00
10. I use the Naked 3 Palette for a base and the Naked Palette (sidecar is my personal fav) for any additions, both are $54.00
13. If I want an extra boost, I use CoverGirl's Lash Blast Volume $8.99
14. For lips, I like to use BabyLips (Tho unfortunately my favorite was a limited time edition) $4.49
15. If I want a more "adult" look, I line it with The Paris Colour Riche Collection Lipstick (620) $8.99

So the grand total? Well, an embarrassing total of: $304.88

Well the only justification I can make it the fact the most expensive products last a pretty long amount of time... hahahaha. How much does YOUR face cost??

  6. Oh my gosh this is too funny! I love your story about dodgeball. I used similar tactics! I would be too embarrassed to add my makeup up! I know I've spent more money than should be allowed on cosmetics! >_>

  8. This is so cool! I actually don't want to calculate my products I'd use on a daily basis because I'm pretty sure I'd cry knowing how expensive most brands are that I use haha!

  13. This is such a great post! It's crazy how that all adds up, but I suppose if I'm going to spend that much anywhere I hope it's on my face!

  15. This is such a cool concept! I just wear mascara so I don't know how much I would be worth but I definitely wouldn't be as much!

  23. Oh my gosh! I don't even want to know what mine costs. Probably a lot and it's still just mostly drug store stuff. Eek! This is such a good post idea though.

  28. Just came across this and realised 2 things:
    1. I am insanely jealous of US makeup prices
    2. As much as I say I'm "not really into makeup" I use at least 7 products everyday, worth a total of over AU$200 - eek!
