How Much Does My Face Cost Today $$$

How much does my face cost today?

I thought it would be revealing to put a price tag on “my makeup of the day”, but thinking about it, do I really want to know?!? Of course, I’m not adding the price of all skincare products & brushes I used … so it’s only makeup products girls!!!

Today it’s July 19


Primer: I’m using my 100 point sample of the Hourglass Ambient Light Correcting Primer in Mood Light – Cost: 0$ (BTW, I really like it a lot!)

Foundation: Today, I’m wearing bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream (color Buttercream 03) – it’s my go-to foundation for summer and it’s priced at 37$

Concealer: I’m using both Becca’s Under Eye Brightening Corrector (36$) + bareMinerals’ Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer (25$). Those two are a perfect match for me …

Under Eye Powder (wet baking): After my average initial review, I have to say that I changed my mind and totally love Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder (30$)… Like they say: “Only fools never changed their minds”!!

Cream Bronzer: Kevyn Aucoin’s The Contour Book The Art of Sculpting + Defining Volume II (78$). I may be overreaching but at present time, this is by far my best purchase of 2016 & my product of the year.


Setting Powder: To powder my T-Zone a tiny bit, I’m using Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder (47$). I find that less is way more youthful on my old self…

Cheeks: Today, I’m sporting Nars Blush in Impassioned (38$). This is the perfect pinky/nude EVER!

Highlighter: I’m going with an oldie but a goodie, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (70$)!


Makeup Setting Spray: As today is very hot and humid, I chose to apply Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray (38$). I need this step if I don’t want my makeup to melt like Olaf in Summer …

Eyebrows …

For my eyebrows, to get a splendid result, I went with my preferred arsenal:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz (27$),


Benefit Cosmetics Ka-Brow! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color with Brush Deluxe Sample, that I received as a gift with purchase (0$). This product is soooo good and the color  #1 is pure p-e-r-f-e-c-t-i-o-n,

And the Holy Grail Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel (29$)!

Eyes …

As you all know, I have a few different products to choose from for my eye makeup. Today, I went with some safe bets:
Primer: Mac Prolongwear Paint Pot in Painterly (26$),

Shadows: Too Faced Chocolate BonBon palette (59$),


and for my Mascara: I went with Too Faced Better Than Sex Deluxe sample, also received as a gift with purchase (0$).

Finally, Lips…

I stayed in my comfort zone and applied Mac’s Lipglass in Cherry Blossom (19$)

Sweet Jesus, it costed a ridiculous 559$ to achieve today’s makeup… I know I pay a lot for makeup products, but I am still floored! To make matters worse, this is my Summer, «no-makeup» makeup!!! Umh, I’m wondering (and afraid of) what would be the price for a full-face winter, hardcore makeup!

Well folks, with that simple calculation, there is nothing else to add. I just hope that I use the hell up of every product I bought (or at least try to)…

I’m curious about what your face cost today ???

  1. I LOVE these tags! I have it in my draft folder… need to do the math on my face too! 😆
    I like how you provide a mini review of each item too! 🙂 You’re really making me want to venture into bareMinerals for base products – that CC cream AND the concealer! Have you done a review of that concealer?
    Eh, the cost is kind of silly because in one day’s makeup usage, you’re using a tiny fraction of what a product’s full value is. So that MAC Paint Pot cost on your face today is really only $0.01. 😉
    By the way, did you take these photos in your garden? 😆

    1. Thinking about it, I never wrote a review on the bareMinerals concealer!😁
      If it only cost me $0.01 per product, I should keep on buying some more 😉
      The pictures were taken in my ex garden, well my “old” garden! (We are BFF) 😂
