How Much Does Your Makeup Cost? Let’s Count Together.

I remember some time ago I had an idea of counting how much was worth the makeup that I was wearing. And last week, after I saw such post on one of the blog that I like, I though about doing the same thing.

So here is the makeup that I wore on Friday.


Firts of all I’ve used a Mineral Primer by BECCA, £34 (my review here). Then I’ve mixed two foundations – Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect in 71  Abricote Clair,£9.5 with  Max Factor Xperience Foundation in 85 Deep Soapstone, £10

I’ve used Chanel Bronze Universel (£26 or £28 I can’t remember) to countorand to add some colour to my face, highlighted with BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl, £33 (review here) and added some BECCA’s Beach Tint in Grapefruit, £19 (review here).

Eyes (£117)

I’ve started with my eye brows and I’ve used Korres Eyebrow pencil in 2, £8 (review here) . Then I’ve used the Daniel Sandler Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliner in Black Velvet, £10 just at the roots of the lashes for some definition. After that I’ve applied Dolce and Gabbana The Eyeshadow in 130 Stromboli, £36.5

To highlight I’ve used Rouge Bunny Rouge Brightening Liner Duo, £22.50 under the brows. Then I’ve applied Calligraphy  Liquid Eye Liner by Hourglass, £22 (review here) and finished with BECCA’s The Ultimate Mascara, £18.


Gorgeous orange BECCA Lip Tint in Frappe, £18. This is such a beautiful colour for summer. You can see the lip swatch here.

So the total value of the makeup that is used = £266.5

Please notice that I am not using any conleacer, powder, lip liner and lipstick. Plus add the price of the eye lash curlers and the brushes.

I have to say that was an interesting post to write and I hope you’ve enjoyed it, too.


  1. Let’s see:
    – Meow Pampered Puss Foundation Frisky Chausie – $24
    – Artdeco Illuminator – $20
    – Artdeco Blusher #19 – $13
    – Catrice Lasting Dream Lipstick (discontinued) – $4
    – Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo Ash Blonde – $30
    – MF False Lash Effect Mascara – $20
    – L’Oreal Studio Primer (not sure of the full name) – $12
    – Inglot eye shadow 10 round pans palette – $75

    I think that’s it for today! 😀

    Total: 174$

    Wow! 😀

  2. I’m having an almost no-makeup day but even that sums up to a lot, I think!
    – Origins Vita Zing – I paid 35$ from the US
    – Bobbi Brown creamy concealer kit : 31€
    – Edward Bess Night Romance lipstick : 24£
    – Hourglass Superficial Lash mascara: 20£
    – Clinique brow pencil: 18€

    Total = 44£ + 49€ (42.5£) + 35$ (21£) = a rough 107.5£ or 124€ or 177$

    That’s a bit scary for an almost naked face!

  3. It’s better not think about it! Like Carrie Bradshaw not ever thought about how much her Manolo’s cost!!!!
