How Much Does My Face Cost?

I saw this post on another blog a while ago and I thought that it was an amazing idea. It is no secret that I love makeup, and also no secret that I spend far too much money on it as well. So, I thought it would be fun to see how much the makeup that I currently have on my face has cost me. I don’t know whether I am excited for this post or dreading it a little bit.
I think by the end of this post when I have added everything up I will be kicking myself for how much money I have spent/wasted on vanity. It obviously will just seem much worse actually writing it down but when you think how long the product will last me it really isn’t that bad… Look at me trying to justify it to myself before I even know how much it has cost me. Anyway, I will jump into things…

I know that is a disgusting amount of money to spend on makeup, but when you think that is buying over near enough a year and I get so much use out of each item. I do have to mention that it does make me feel a little sick seeing it down like that.
I am trying to make more of an effort to use more drugstore products this year, so I will do this post again in a couple months’ time and we can see what the difference is!
As normal with all of my blog posts I will leave a link down below to all of the products that I have mentioned in this post in case you want to check them out. If you have any questions, make sure that you leave them in the comments down below and I will get right back to you!



  1. It's a crazy amount but I'm not sure mine would be too different! I do use quite a lot of drugstore products nowadays though which I guess helps a little bit. All worth it though!

    1. After creating this post I am desperate to incorporate more drugstore!

  3. It's amazing how quickly it all adds up! I did this last year & was shocked! xx


    1. I know, I feel really guilty for spending this much on my face!

  4. The amount is extraordinary but if you think that all these products last for a long time, it might not be that bad after all! I wanted to do this post for so long but I don't think I will do it, I am so scared to face the ugly truth! x
