"How Much Is Your Face Worth?" Tag

As a general rule I try to keep this blog mostly about fashion because, well, that's what most interests me, and also what I really feel like I know best. However, lately I've been obsessed with watching beauty tutorials on Youtube and reading all of these beauty blogs. I'm not going to stick my neck out there and say this is going to turn into a beauty blog (I don't have the makeup skills for that!) but I really would like to incorporate all aspects that I'm interested in. This is, after all, my blog!

With that said, I've seen so so many people doing the "How Much Is Your Face Worth?" tag. Basically, you add up all of the products that you put on your face for a singular look and then gape at how much your face actually costs to put on. Strange concept, I know, but it sounded fun!

Maybelline Cover Stick Corrector/Concealer - Green - $6.29
Covergirl Invisibile Concealer - Light - $6.49
Neutrogena Skin Clearing Oil Free Foundation - Nude - $14.49
Covergirl Clean Pressed Powder Oil Control - Buff Beige - $7.99
Maybelline Ultra Brow Brush-On Powder Color - Dark Brown - $6.79
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil - Yeyo - $19.00
Wet 'n' Wild Mega Liquid Eyeliner - Black - $2.99
Maybelline Great Last "Lots of Lashes" - Very Black - $5.19
Ulta brand lipstick - Chili Pepper 203 - $8.00

Total: $77.23

Honestly, I was expecting a lot worse. When I've seen them on the YouTubes or on other blogs, some of these girls were getting up into the $300, $400, $500 range! They do have wonderful makeup though...(and it wasn't bought at the local Walgreens).

I would have to say I really do recommend all of these products, except for the liquid concealer. It's cakey, does not last very long, and on my skin tone it is very hard to make the right color with the rest of my foundation. It's almost gone thankfully, and I'm really just trying to use it up. I'll be making a different purchase next time. Maybe I'll actually buy some luxury makeup this time after watching all of the wonderful YouTube girls use their fancy-pants makeup. That's all for now! I have the week from hell coming up in school with two exams and two papers, so I've meticulously planned my next week and a half. Cross your fingers that I can find time to update!


  1. Isn't it crazy how much you can actually spend on makeup!? I too just started to watch a ton of you tube videos and ever since that have spend even more money.
    Anyways, I really enjoyed reading this post & hope to see more beauty posts! Share your favorite youtubers too if you want!

    Greetings from the Midwest :)

  2. Thats a great idea, I should do a post on some of my favorite YouTubers!

  3. Gorgeous! I recently just switched to Bare Essentials, and if you don't want to buy everything, I would just highly recommend their foundation and concealer. I swear my skin got healthier when I started using it! And their concealer isn't bad either. You have to buy the primer though if you want it to last.
    P.S. Love the duckling with the hat haha

    1. You know, I tried that for a while, and I loved it but after a while I really noticed that it started to cling to dry spots on my face and that it didn't last very long. It could have been that it was winter (with the dryness) but I was extremely frustrated with the amount of time it lasted. I still have all the stuff, maybe I should go buy the primer and give it another go!!

      And thanks :) haha I really need to change it hat to a fall one!
