Revisited: How much is your face worth? Weekday face

As promised I'm about to 'fess up again on the cost of beauty because I wanted to find out how much my weekday grooming costs.  Just to remind you, my basic 'natural' weekend makeup tallied up to a total cost of $156.50 which was already pretty shocking! 

Here's what I wore to work last week.  All prices are retail:

      • MAC Select Sheer pressed powder (NC 20) - $44AUD
      • YSL Touche Eclat (2) - $55AUD
      • MAC Sheertone blush (Blushbaby) - $41AUD
      • Subtotal:  $140AUD

      • MAC Lustre eyeshadow (Tempting) - $33AUD
      • MAC Veluxe pearl eyeshadow (Soft Force) - $33AUD
      • MAC Powerpoint eye pencil (Duck) - $32AUD
      • Lancome Definicils mascara (Black) - $52AUD
      • Subtotal:  $150AUD
        • MAC Amplified lipstick (Cosmo) - $36AUD
        • Wet'n'Wild lipliner pencil (666) - $4AUD approx (this was actually a gift from a friend so technically it's at no cost) 
        • Subtotal:  $40AUD

Total cost:  A whopping $340,  more than double my weekend look!! And that doesn't include skincare and perfume!  As I very rarely wear foundation it also wasn't included.

This exercise has been very interesting and quite a bit of a reality check for me.  I'm now working on my budget face challenge which I'll post soon.

Until my next post.

  1. Great post, will be interesting to see how much you can reduce the cost by :)

  2. @Maria - I'm hoping to dramatically reduce the cost!

  3. I agree with Maria,

    I can't wait to see the budget version! :)
