How Much Is My Face Worth?

I've seen this kind of post a lot round the blogosphere recently (these ones by Kat and Emily are particular favourites!) and it didn't take long for me to start wondering how much my own face was worth. It's strange  I've never really given it much thought before, and I think that's because if I do think about how much something costs, I just think of that individual item (and whether it was worth the money!)

The make-up I use on a daily basis varies but these are the products I tend to reach for when I want to look polished with minimal effort  cream formulas are so much easier to blend. (I can just hear my mum screeching 'This is minimal?!' but yeah, for me it is, Mumma).



Base

Primer: Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid, £14.99
Foundation: NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Siberia, £31
Concealer (for spots): Kiko Full Coverage Concealer in 01 Light, £7.50
Concealer (for under the eyes): GOSH Click 'n' Conceal in Light, £6.99
Powder: Lily Lolo Finishing Powder in Translucent Silk, £13.49

Total: £73.97

Cheeks

Blush: Rosie For Autograph Cream Blush in English Rose Flush, £14
Highlighter: theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer, £17.50

Total: £31.50


Eyes and Brows

Brows: Seventeen Brow's That! Brow Kit, £5.99
Eyeshadow: Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in Jean, £22
Mascara: GOSH Rebel Eyes Mascara in Black, £8.99

Total: £36.98

Lips

Lip liner: GOSH Velvet Touch Lip Liner in Angel Kiss, £4.99
Lipstick: Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Bitch Perfect, £23

Total: £27.99

Grand Total: £170.44

Wow, okay, that's not as much as some posts I've seen but it's still a lot  not far off from hitting £200! Even though I knew the total was going to be high I'm still a bit shocked; it just goes to show you how it all adds up, I guess.

Have you ever done a post like this before? Leave me your links if you have, I'd love to read them! And if not, how much do you reckon your total would be? Let me know in the comments!

Note: Although NARS was a cruelty-free brand at the time of writing, they have since decided to sell their products in China as of June 2017 and therefore are no longer cruelty-free.
