How Much Do You Spend On Makeup?


This is one of my favorite Buzzfeed videos, because it really makes me think about consumption. I’ve been good about using the same products, and not buying new things unless I run out of product or they are absolutely necessary (picking up those Hello Kitty products were very necessary).

So, as a result, I’ve decided to tally up how much my regularish makeup costs! I chose the products that I use to create my usual makeup look, and then added up the costs.


COTZ Natural Skin Tone– $20

Neutrogena ® Skin Clearing Complexion Perfector– $8.99

NYX Proof It Eyeshadow Primer– $6.99

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette– $54

L’Oréal® Paris Infallible 24HR Lacquer Intense Gel Eyeliner– $7.79

TOPSHOP Eyebrow Pencil– $10

Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara– $2.99

Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up! Highlighter– $30

Physician’s Formula Butter® Bronzer in Light– $14.39

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek (The Hello Kitty Collection one)– $8.00

Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Crush– $6.19

TOTAL: $169.34

Holy guacamole.

I use a mix of drugstore and high-end, so my total definitely was not as bad as some of the Ladylike ladies! And my priciest items are things that have lasted me forever.

How much is the cost of your daily makeup? Is it as startling as mine?
