My Face is Worth, What?



Have you ever wondered what your face is worth? I've seen this 'tag' floating around, and while I wasn't officially tagged, I thought it might be interesting to see what my average day of makeup cost. I had an idea of what my end total would be, but I was shocked when it ended up being almost double that.


The particular day I chose to document, was just an average day. I had not planned what I was going to use, I just grabbed and added as I went. I kept all my items out (instead of putting them away as I went) so I could keep track. Not only did the price shock me a bit, the amount of products used did too; I never thought that I used that much. By the way (if you're keen, and noticed) the list does not correspond with what is pictured. I made the list first and added the photos second... oops.


  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 $26.99
  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer $18 *
  • Origins GinZing $30 *
  • Benefit Erase Paste $30
  • Nip+ Fab Eye Fix $12.99 *
 

  • Lush Sweet Lips Sugar Scrub $8.95
  • Nivea Milk and Honey Lip Balm $3
  • Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation $14.99 *
  • Avon Ideal Flawless Concealer Stick $7.99

  • Dior DiorSkin Forever Invisible Retouch Powder $42
  • Too Faced Papa Don't Peach Brightening Blush $20
  • Smashbox Limitless Wear Cream Eyeshadow in Quartz $22
  • MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow Modern Pewter $24


  • Urban Decay Naked palette $60
  • Lancome Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner $37
  • L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes $13.99
  • Avon Perfect Eyebrow Pencil- dark brown $7.99
  • Origins Underwear for Lips $15
  • Mark. M. Powerment Petal Lip Click $12
  • MAC Creamsheen Glass- Boy Bait $22.50

So, what was my total? 20 products, adding up to....

Drumroll....

A grand total of $429.39 CAD (with 13% sales tax $485.21) Whaat?! I thought good ol' Ontario sales tax should be added on too, since I did have to pay it when I bought everything. For my European friends, the total is £274.36 GBP. It looks much better in pounds!

Have you added up your daily face? Did it shock you?

  2. Interesting! I like counting my daily body, like how much I am walking out with everyday. That would include my ring, my handphone, my necklace, shoes, bag, clothes, etc, etc, and that, honestly is quite scary.

    1. Ah! That is super scary, but you might be right, I don't think I've seen (m)any that high either... there must be at least a few higher. I hop so at least!
