Now its all been added up is actually quite a shocking amount and I think I definitely need to re think my spending habits when it comes to make up, I think a spending ban is in order here until I use up all the products I have accumulated.
Lest see how long this lasts shall we...

How much is your face worth and are you just as shocked as I am at the amount I spend on make up on a monthly basis?

Until next time xx

  1. This is so interesting! I know when I go to the makeup counter I am always shocked by the grand total of my monthly makeup/beauty products. Would love to work out the total of my skin care and makeup too! Great post! xx

    1. Yeah I always dread that final total and I feel like telling them to take a few items off even though I know I need them xx

  2. I dread to think what mine is, I have a mixture of high end and drugstore products so I don't think it would be as much as I'd think it was but still, I'm too scared to find out! x

    1. I would love to use drugstore products like foundation and concealer, it would make my everyday make up use a lot less expensive and my high end products would last longer but they still haven't brought out a range for darker skin so it's hard, maybe itl happen some day xx

  3. This is a fab idea, I've never thought about pricing all the products I use - it would be scary! Great post :)
