How Much is Your Face Worth?

Welcome or welcome back to my happy, little blog where I use makeup to conquer a complicated chronic neuro condition. My beautiful blogger friend Shannel Lee from A Little Over Thirty tagged me for the "How Much is Your Face Worth?" tag. I am really really enjoying this tag. I have been reading everyone else's and I am thoroughly enjoying participating as well! So without further ado, let's find out if I have a cheap face. 

I love the Pond's Luminous Finish BB+ Cream. I began wearing it daily when I got it and I haven't stopped wearing it. The Revlon Colorstay Aqua Mineral Makeup provides a little extra coverage since I am not wearing any foundation. I am being faithful to my MAC Prep and Prime as I am trying to finish what is left of it. I am really enjoying the L'Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer; it's a perfect match and blends easily.

MAC Prep + Prime Skin $30.00
Pond's Luminous Finish BB+ Cream in Light $10.99
Revlon Colorstay Aqua Mineral Makeup in Light Medium $13.99
L'Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer $8.95 

The NYC Bronzing Powder is a cult classic for a reason. It's completely matte and it blends easily. I love the ELF Cream Blush it applies so effortlessly with the ELF Small Stippling brush and it blends very easily. I love layer this cream blush under another blush and today it the Milani Powder Blush which is too cute. It's a matte blush with make with an impression of a rose. Finally I love to add a touch of highlight to my face with the Wet N Wild Fergie highlight which is a beautiful light pink shimmery wonder. 

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny $2.99
ELF Cream Blush in Vixen 6.00
Milani Powder Blush in Romantic Rose $6.49
Wet N Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection in Rose Champagne Glow $5.99

I love the ELF eyelid primer I have gone through several of these and will continue to purchase it. For only a buck this stuff really works. Today I am wearing the Revlon Colorstay quad in Siren which is nice mix of plummy taupe and gray. I always prime my lashes with Sephora Perfecting Lash Primer and the mascara of the day is the Physician's Formula Organic Wear for my top lashes. I always wear a tubing mascara on my bottom lashes and L'Oreal Beauty Tubes is perfect. My brows are simple with Milani Brow Fix Kit and topped with a light coat of Maybelline Great Lash.

ELF Eyelid Primer $1.00
Revlon Colorstay 16 Hr Eye Shadow in Siren $7.99
Sephora Perfecting Lash Primer $11.00 
Physician's Formula Organic Wear $9.99
L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara in Black $10.99
Milani Brow Fix Brow Kit in Light $5.99
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Clear $5.99
Revlon Colorstay Creme Gel Liner (not pictured) $9.99

On my lips I am wearing ELF Lip Liner and Blending Brush in Red even though it's not really red. I love the formula of the Milani Color Statement Lipstick and the ELF Minty Lip Gloss is always a favorite. 

ELF Studio Lip Liner and Blending Brush in Red $3.00
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Plumrose $5.99
ELF Minty Lip Gloss in an unknown color $3.00

So today my face is worth.....................................................$160.33
I suspected that's where the number would fall. However, I will admit that I love my coupons. If I had to guess a figure that I truly paid for the makeup above it would be closer to $98.50 with the MAC being the only item for which I truly paid full price. The MAC Prep and Prime is the one high end product that I am really trying to use up so I knew it would drive the price up.

I would like to tag the following beauties:
Saffron Lallem from Saffy Style
Elizabeth Breygel from The Beauty Inside
Chelsea Henderson from The Makeup Junkie
