People often make remarks about the money I spend on makeup but hey it’s no different to spending all your money on clothes,  expensive shoes, bags or nights out. Sometimes I do look at my makeup collection and think wow, I spent a lot on that but then it’s something I enjoy and it’s my thing. So what if I like to treat myself with a new product or two, treats are always good.

Despite that short lived wave of guilt I experience every so often, I've never really thought about how costly my face is. I’ve seen the ‘How Much Is Your Face’ tag circling the web and I love reading about what’s on others people’s face so I thought I’d share my own. I’ve chosen to do this based on a Christmas party look.


Benefit Porefessional Primer @£24.50


Estee Lauder Double Wear @£31.00

My Face Costs £328.68

Wow, I did expect my face to be on the pricier side due to some of the products I use but I didn’t expect the cost to be quite that high! Now I know where all my money goes. Thankfully my day to day face is nothing like this and is lucky if it includes a dab of concealer and a lick of mascara. I’m now away to re-evaluate my spending habits, while I do, I’d love if you guys could leave a comment below with your blog links below if you’e done this tag so I can check them out.




  1. if it makes you happy and doesn't impact your or others lives why should it matter, i'm the same constantly buying makeup (or shoes) but since it makes me happy and it's not hurting anyone i don't see the problem :) ps gunna have to try that highlight palette it's beautiful =^.^=

  2. Great products :) I really want to try the Benefit Hoola bronzer next.

  3. Gorgeous make-up product and I love the Highlighter palette and 35 eyeshadow palette. I think I also spend lots of money for all my make-up. But I'm happy because I really love make-up. I think is worth it when to buy something that you really love.

    Kintan XO,

  4. These are so wonderful products! I'd really like to try something from NARS, as I haven't before :)

  5. Do what makes you happy and if that is makeup then so be it. You have some great products. Merry Christmas 😊😊

  6. I've not counted up how much my face would be worth but I am sure that I would be surprised with the amount although now that I've changed to cruelty free brands I've noticed that they are much cheaper than the Clarins, Clinique, Benefit that I previously bought.

  7. I don't spend much on makeup but I also don't see why not. It is the same as spending on any other thing to make you look good and feel great. Also that's not the final price of "your face" for one night, it's allot more. How many uses do you get out of it? ;)
