The Price Of My Face.

I've saw a few people do this tag such as Jessica at The Mod Mermaid and have been so excited to do it for ages. I would have done it a few weeks ago but I had some new items planned for purchase and wanted to wait until I'd tried and used them to see if they were going to be some new additions!

Firstly I'll start with my face make up. A recent addition was this Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream which I use in the lightest shade. It's more of a tinted moisturiser than anything and I find it really good for a foundation base.

The foundation I'm currently using is the Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in 00 - Alabaster (again, the lightest shade).

The concealer I recently purchased (and adore) is the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC 15.

Next is my eye make up. I use my Naked palette by Urban Decay every single day and I think it might be one of the best purchases I've made, make up wise.

For my eyeliner I use Ink for Eyes, also by Urban Decay in Zero.

My mascara is FAIRYDROPS. The one in the photo above is the mini one, but I have the full sized one which I've started to use since taking this photo so I'll be using the price for the full sized product.

My eyebrow pencil is the Artists Eye Pencil by Estee Lauder in 02 Soft Smudge Brown.

I'm putting two for this even though I don't use them together. I reapply lip balm approx. every hour so it most definitely had to be included. I'm currently using the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in Cherry Me.

My everyday lip colour is a Revlon Lip Butter which I use mostly in 050 - Berry Smoothie.

I'll be putting the prices in dollars since I have a lot of readers who use this currency, and also because the FAIRYDROPS mascara is US only. Then I'll show the current exchange rate! Now for the scary part...

  • Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream - $7.44
  • Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick - $42.00
  • MAC Pro Longwear Concealer - $18.00
  • Naked Palette by Urban Decay - $50.00
  • Ink For Eyes by Urban Decay - $23.50
  • FAIRYDROPS - $24.00
  • Artists Eye Pencil by Estee Lauder - $25.00
  • Maybelline Baby Lips - $2.99
  • Revlon Lip Butter - $6.49
Total - $199.42

Total (In pounds sterling going by today's exchange rate) - £131.58

Um, what? Excuse me! Looking at the photograph that I showed at the start you would most definitely not think that these few things cost this much money! It's hard to believe how much money I carry around on my face everyday.

I tag everyone to do this post as I'm very curious now as to how much other people wear on their face everyday!


  1. Ha! I love reading these. I look over at how much my own face was and realize, hmmm ... guess it wasn't so bad, really! I'd love for you to do a review on the FairyDrops mascara as I've seen it loads and it is tempting to buy haha. Great post! :)

    1. Haha, it's insane! You just look at how little there is in the photo and think how can it cost so much money!? I have some photos on my laptop now ready to write my FairyDrops post! :) I'll try and do it soon for you :)

  2. Love this post, I love the Maybelline Dream Cream!


  3. Hmmm its very interesting when you find out how much money you actually spend on make up. I have enough make up to last me a LONG time...but still don't hesistate to buy more lol.
    Cool post :)

    Now following! Feel free to follow back! :) x

  4. I nominated you for The Laine Blog Award :) more details on my blog :)

  5. Great post! You have only listed the RRP of each item though yeah? Not the break down per use amount as that would be the true amount of $$ that you would wear on your face everyday. Interesting though! Mine would definitely be very little x
