How Much Is My Face Worth?




Hello! I’m Tessa and I blog at www.hollysparkle.co.uk and I also have a youtube channel (youtube.com/tessahollysparkle). I usually focus on fashion and lifestyle so I was very excited to make a beauty post for Alice as it’s a little different for me.

I’ve been wanting to do this post for quite a while as I was curious how much I’ve actually spent on the makeup that I use regularly. I tend to alternate between primers and eyeshadows (if I’d included my much loved Naked 2 palette instead of the Collection one then the total would be bumped up a bit!) but these are the products that I usually reach for.

Dainty Doll foundation - £22
Dainty Doll concealer - £14
Lorac Take a Brow - £15
Too Faced Better Than Sex - £19
Collection lipstick - £2.99
Body Shop Instablur - £14
Maybelline blush - £6.49
Collection eyeliner - £2.99
MUA highlighter - £3
MUA powder - £3
Body Shop bronzer - £13
Collection Eyes Uncovered palette - £3.99

Total £122.46

I have to say I'm quite surprised that the total amount is over £100. I've always been one to use more budget friendly options so it’s amazing how easily things can add up! It’s also made me realise though that I do tend to go for the more expensive items in my make up collection which I suppose says something about the quality. I do think it’s better to invest a bit more in things like foundation but I have to admit that 6 of these 12 products were gifted to me either as a blogger or as presents from family. That definitely makes me a bit happier about the amount I've spent myself, maybe one day I’ll add up my whole collection!

It would be great to know how much your face costs too, I think mine is quite reasonable considering there are 12 products. I know Alice has also done this post, it’s a great way to see all the make up people use.

  1. It's crazy how much the price of makeup builds and builds even when you budget buy. Great post lovely!
