What's your face worth?

Inspired by Rae's cost breakdown of her daily face routine, I decided to join in.
(All prices are Canadian btw, the approximate cost sans tax)

Sana Konuka Moist Toner $15
Murad Sensitive Skin serum $56
Dove Sensitive Skin lotion $11
Shiseido SPF eye cream $35
Clarins UV Day Screen $40


I don't usually wear makeup to work, but if I did that would add on:

La Mer Fluid Tint $90
MAC Greyprint Technakohl $18
Blinc Kiss Me mascara $31

=$139, plus skin products $157 = $296 on weekdays

On weekends a typical full face look would include:

La Mer Fluid Tint $90
Silk Naturals Perfecting Powder sample $1
EDM Intensive Light concealer sample $2
MAC Emote blush $25
EDM Soft Touch blush $5

UDPP $22
Annabelle Gleam eyeshadow $5
MAC Woodwinked eyeshadow $16
MAC Brun eyeshadow $16
Lancome Oscillation $34

Nivea Q10 lipbalm $4
Chanel glossimer in Galactic $24

=$244, plus skin products $157 = $401 on weekends

Here's what I would use at night too:

Sana Konuka Moist Toner $15
Nars Aqua Gel Hydrator $70
Dove Sensitive Skin lotion $10
DDF Biomolecular Eye serum $90
Clarisonic brush $220

=$405! (well partly because 50% was from the Clarisonic brush)

In line with how Rae did hers, I only included product costs - excludes cleanser, brushes, lash curler. I did include the Clarisonic though...since I do use it every night.

Share yours if you'd like :) I still think the cost is worthwhile though, after all your face is the first thing most people judge you by, and you only got one :P

Do it, its fun :) Use whichever currency's easiest! I used CDN just because I remembered most of the prices in Canadian rather than the US prices.

Oh, this is interesting. I'll figure it out!

fuzkittie said...

LOL, I dropped my jaw when reading your totals, but then I was like... I better not do this one! Will only scare myself. Hahaha.

AskMeWhats said...

its a lot but at least we dont use it all in one day heehee [ie a whole bottle of foundation etc]

i'd like to know how much it is per day i think!

Jenn @ So Very Fabulous said...

I'm tempted to add up how much my entire collection is worth, but it'd be super scary! haha :)

Interesting posty ms blu!!

I am going to be doing a post of my own on my face care bits so this is definately given me somthing to ponder on.

You are right about the face being the first impression for peoples judgement. I get tempted to abuse that fact though - dont you??

iamgrape1119 said...

Great idea!! I'm stealing it!! LOL!

Violet Honeybee said...

Mine's probably not very much.. but I'm still scared to check lol. Wow your brush is crazy expensive!! Is it worth it though?? =D

Anonymous said...

Love this post — it made me giggle a little and I wonder how much my face costs, too!!

cheryl said...

it's true that we only got 1 face, hahaha... how do u like the clarisonic brush?? is it worth it?

Yumeko said...

the jill stuart seductive eyes range has a matte base but the main color is glittery.

the illuminance eyes [wat i got] is just shimmery for all 4 colors

thats what i noticed..i am no expert sadly since i dont own a lot from them yet.

You should get a massage! I feel much better! Deep tissue is the shit!

My lips are super pigmented too! Some pale colors show up quite well on me. My lips are naturally more red than pink, and Dior lipsticks show up well! Not so much with Bobbi Brown. You should try Dior!

Hahha thanks! If I had more time, I'd curl my hair more often, even though it's longer now.

Ooooh, I see.. Galactic is super pretty on you! You've got a real pretty natural lip color! Have you tried pink/beige lipsticks?!

Oh lovely, a breakdown! (I know, I suck for being almost a week late with this comment.)

May I just say "holy crap, you're wearing a $90 tinted moisturizer"? Then again, I think I already knew that. And your skin DOES look amazing :P

I'm glad you have SPF in there, but I don't see any on the weekend! O.o

I did mine, cost per use, like we said. :)

theChas said...

Dude, I'm not going to even bother, haha. I'll be sad.
