I was recently browsing some blogs and I came across what I thought was a really interesting post. Basically, the idea was to take a look at the specific makeup products that I use on a daily basis and list the names along with the retail values of each item. This fascinated me so much because I don't think we realize how much we truly spend on makeup. I know that I have many products that are rather expensive, but I have never broken down the price of each individual item and totaled them up to see how much my everyday routine is worth. With that being said, here is a list all of all the products that make up my daily routine!
Prime Time Foundation Primer - $22
Physicians Formula Bronze Booster - $15
Make Up Forever Powder Foundation - $32
Make Up Forever HD Foundation - $40
Make Up Forever Concealer - $30
Bare Minerals Bisque Concealer - $18
Total - $157
Milani Luminoso Baked Blush - $8
NARS Laguna Bronzing Powder - $34
NARS Albatross Highlighting Powder - $28
Total - $70
Maybelline XXL Pro Mascara - $9
Urban Decay Naked Palette - $50
Stila Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner - $20
Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - $7
Bare Minerals Eyebrow Enhancer - $11
Stila Kitten Eyeshadow - $18
Urban Decay Primer Potion - $20
Bobbi Brown Corrector - $22
Total - $157
Nivea Milk & Honey Moisturizer - $3
Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish (Samantha) - $18
Total - $21
Overall Total = $405
To be completely honest, I am very relieved! I was expecting the total price to be well over $500, though the actual cost isn't very far off. Although this is a lot of makeup, this doesn't even begin to touch upon what's inside of my train case. I have so many products that I don't use everyday, but that I still keep at my disposal for special events or for when I simply want to change my look up a bit. If I were to add up all of the makeup that I had in total, I think I would be slightly afraid to see the final price of everything, so I think I'll steer away from doing so!
How much do you spend on makeup?
Do you think that it's worth it?
