the price of beauty
I saw Louise do this tag so thought I'd join in and do the same thing! I know I like high end makeup and don't actually tend to dwell too much on the prices of thing whenever I buy things. I did however think that this was just a fun and interesting tag when it comes down to it! The basic idea of the tag (if you couldn't guess) is to list all the products you use on your face and then add them up to get the price of all the products you use. I've spend hundreds, if not thousands on makeup over the years so I imagine it to be pretty high! Anyway lets take a look at the products I wore today:
Benefit The Porefessional (£23.50), Dior Air Flash Foundation (£33), Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19), Clarins Skin Illusion Mineral Foundation (£28), MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Dark (£21), MAC Style Blush (£14.50), Clarins Odyessy Face Palette (£35)*, Inglot Shadow in Shine 09 (£4.50), MAC Espresso (£10), Pixi Lash Line Ink (£12)*, Avon Super Shock Mascara (£10), Ardell Demi Wispies (£4.99), Topshop Whimsical Lipstick (£8)
This comes to a total of 208.68 without including any of the skincare, treatments, brushes or stuff like that! I can't say I'm genuinely shocked at the price of it all, Although I can say I actually expected it to be a hell of a lot more than £200! I know I like high end makeup and wear a hell of alot of it at that! I suppose I do get more than one use out of all of these items so it could be justified by CPW (cost per wear)! I could have worn less of the products too, for example I don't wear powder or bronzer much at the moment, and I didn't really need to wear the Clarins highlighter I just like putting it on my face! It is worth pointing out some of the items have been given to me so I didn't buy all of them so I could use that as a slight excuse! I usually hate these open ended questions at the end of posts, but I'd genuinely love to know the cost of your faces?
