Today’s post is quite an interesting one as you can see by the title we are going to be finding out how much my makeup bags worth! I have never thought about this until the other day when i was watching a youtube video on this and i thought that this would be a fun post to do as I don’t think i really realise how much i actually spend on makeup!
Recently I have swapped primer for a moisturiser which I think is a lot cheaper than a primer at only £2.99 !
total price so far: £2.99
foundation + beauty blender:
i use the L’Oréal true match super blendable foundation for ages now and it is £9.99 which I don’t think is too bad for a foundation. The beauty sponge i use is by real techniques and costs £19.99 which is a little more than what i would like to spend on a sponge but it does a really good job!
total price so far: £32.97
i like to use the rimmel satin finish translucent loose powder which costs around £7.00 . I love this powder as it feels and looks flawless on the face and sets my makeup for the day.
total price so far: £39.97
bronzer and highlighter:
i use the revlon contour and lights palette which comes with eight shades costing £8.99 .
total price so far: £48.95
Recently i have just taken a Matt brown shade from the contour palette so i guess that counts as free?
total price so far: £48.95
i have been LOVING the L’Oréal Paris miss baby roll mascara, i would even go as far as to say that it is my favourite mascara i have ever tried in the drugstore EVER! It only costs £8.99 which is such a bargain for such a great mascara!
total price so far: £57.94
i have been using the MUA ( which is one of Superdrug’s own brands) velvet lip lacquer in the shade gravity which is a beautiful pink/purple nude shade! I don’t really know why but recently i have been loving a good nude lip ,anyone else the same? This reatails for £3 which is so good considering the quality of it which is amazing!
total price so far: £60.94
the last thing i put on my face is setting spray! As gross as it is i do not want my makeup melting off throughout the day so of course setting spay is a must. The one i have been recently using is new looks own brand setting spray. i know it is a weird choice but i was just really intrigued to see what it was like and it wasn’t going to beat the urban decay all nighter but it was great for the price i paid whic was £4.99.
this isn’t all of what i own it is only what i personally like to wear on a daily basis which is why it is all drugstore as I don’t really want to have to spend a lot of money on replacing things if i am using them daily which is why i am shocked to say the price is …. drumroll please…. £65.93!!
i am so shocked that is has come to this much but in all honesty i kind of knew that it was going to be over £40!
would you spend this much on makeup/ how much do you think your makeup bag is worth?
i hope you enjoyed this post!
