Recently one of my favorite beauty bloggers NYCmakeuplover1 (you should check out her blog, it's great!) did a post where she looked at her everyday makeup and then calculated how much it costs. Basically, you see what your face is worth. I thought it looked like fun, so I went ahead and did it for my face today!
Elf mineral Infused Face Primer -$6
Elf Flawless Finish Foundation in Sand- $6
Elf all over cover stick in Ivory- $1
NYC smooth skin pressed face powder in Translucent- $3
NYC smooth skin bronzing face powder in sunny- $3
Elf Studio Blush in Pink Passion- $3
Elf Studio Bronzer in Golden- $3
Elf eyebrow kit in Medium- $3
Elf wet gloss Lash and Brow Clear Mascara- $1
Elf eyelid primer- $1
Wet 'n Wild Color Icon Trio in Walking on eggshells- $3
Elf Eyeliner Pen in Coffee- $1
Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Waterproof mascara in Black Brown- $6
EOS lip balm in Lemon Drop- $2
Elf lipstick in Voodoo- $1
Elf luscious liquid lipstick in Bark- $1
It's actually more than I thought. I used a ton of very affordable products. All of the Elf products are 3 dollars or less. The wet n wild trio of eyeshadows was very affordable. I guess even the most affordable of products add up. Keep in mind, these prices are what it would cost o purchase all of these products for full price. I didn't necessarily pay full price for each of these items. So, my total might be less, or more, depending on the deals I got, the shipping I paid, etc. So, to be fair, I just looked up the prices online and went with the price each item was listed as, sometimes rounding up or down to get an even price.
I would love to know what your face is worth! If you do a post similar to this one, leave a link to it in the comments below. Or, just tell me what products you used today and what the total worth of them is!
