This is terrifying to do – taking a look at the make up you use every day and calculate how much it cost you. I don’t even know what has made me decide that this is a good idea (I’m blaming Christine), other than I thought it would be fun. This would also vary day to day depending on what I wear, but I decided to go for a simple look and spare me too much heart ache.
I’ve had to google the prices I’ve used and some of them have been in foreign currencies, so they are according to today’s exchange rate which is unfortunately very dismal.

….yikes. I mean, these have been purchased over quite a few years and some were PR samples, etc but…still. I am really horrified. And after I calculated this I even considered switching out some of the products I chose, or taking out my skincare or what not, but that’s not the point of this tag is it?
If you want more I spent too much money on makeup goodness, Chelle also did this post a few years ago too. In the mean time I’m going to go distract myself from this scary number…
