Everyday Beauty Routine - How Much Does My Face Cost?

Everyday Beauty Routine - How Much Does My Face Cost?
"Too much money, and too much effort."

My boyfriend retorts. 

He just doesn't get it.

But to be fair, he was accurate though. He's pretty overwhelmed with the amount of skincare and makeup products I own. I just love playing with makeup and skincare. Though it did once in a while make me ponder the amount I spend. How much do I spend on my everyday face? As I'm writing this, I have not yet added up the cost of the products I use daily. So both my mind and yours will probably be at shocked. But I doubt it since not all of my products are THAT expensive. 

So, again, how much do I spend on my everyday face? And is it worth it?

Although some products many can skip but these are necessities in my book. So wow, RM649.40. We're off to a great start.

It seems like a lot of shadows but, to be honest, I only use a couple of shades from both palettes to create my everyday eye makeup look. I did an Everyday Glam Makeup Look post if you want to check out the eye makeup I'm talking about!

I'm not much of a liquid lipstick lover but recently I reignited my love for Maybelline Matte Inks! I forgot how long-wearing they are. Touch-up who? Apart from that, I know what you're thinking. That's a lot of lip products considering I only have one pair of lips. What can I say, I just love creating my own lip combo.

Total cost:

Gulp. Now I know where all my money goes. Isn't it crazy that my everyday beauty routine amounts to that? That's the real shocker. Makeup and skincare aren't cheap, guys. But to be fair, some of these products will last me a very long time. And to that, no matter what price, skincare and makeup both are amazing. And definitely worth it.

How much does your face cost?


  1. I don't dare to calculate mine because because I know my skincare cost a lot! T_T

    1. I know!! Thank god I'm more on the minimalist side now when it comes to skincare so the number weren't as shocking haha

  2. I agree with Farah as well here. I don't need to calculate every piece to know it could be in the thousands + with skincare.
    T_T But hey, they play their part on an every day basis. hehe

    1. Definitely thousands, babe haha! But I totally had fun writing this one though :D

  3. I have to be honest, i've never added it all up. I think it would be scary haha xo

    1. I know right! Even as someone that doesn't really wear high end makeups, I got a little shocked by that number haha :D
