contents of my makeup bag
contents of my makeup bag

So I was tagged by the lovely Jess from LovelyJubblyBlog, to find out how my much my face costs. I was actually really excited to find out how much the contents of my everyday makeup bag costs. I spend so much on money so maybe this post will be a wake up call to myself to stop spending money. All you basically have to do is empty the contents of your makeup bag or the products you use everyday and add up the prices to get your total. So shall we investigate...I'm actually scared of writing the total.

First up I pretty much stick to a product once I love it, so if its made the makeup bag it is used pretty much everyday. I know you may be thinking why do you have two bronzers and I actually have a really good excuse, the Chanel one is for contour because I love it so much and the Nars one is to add some colour to my pale face during these colder months and because my tan had vanished from the summer. The only product I always switch up is my foundation. My skin is usually oily but lately its very dry so my Laura Mercier is the only one I can wear that gives good coverage. Usually the Laura Mercier literally slides off my face hence I don't think its worth it hefty price tag.  Also I'm a huge lipstick lover and I actually removed 3 lipsticks and stuck with the two that I use religiously. Ok lets go. If I have a review on a product I'll link it up.

Grand Total: €278.75

OH MY GOD! I'm actually in shock at that total. I was expecting €200 but nearly hitting €300 is beyond ridiculous. I need to have a good think to myself about how much I spend on makeup. Its really is ridiculous. Imagine if we added up our entire makeup collection. I could probably have bought a decent car for the amount of money I have spend.

I tag you all to do this. Its kind of fun and scary to find out just how valuable your makeup is.
