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.

Honestly, he's right. He's a bit overwhelmed by all the skincare and makeup stuff I have. I just really enjoy playing around with makeup and taking care of my skin. Sometimes, though, I do wonder how much I actually spend on all of it. I haven't added it all up yet, but I bet both you and I would be surprised. Although, not everything I use is super pricey, so maybe it's not as shocking as we think.

So, yeah, how much do I really spend on my everyday makeup? And is it worth it?

I thought my base would cost more because a perfect base is my thing. I don't mind splurging a bit on it. Good skincare is key for a flawless base. Some products might be optional though, but these are must-haves for me. Wow, RM649.40 already? We're off to a great start.

Latetely, I've totally fallen back in love with Maybelline Matte Inks! I forgot how long they last. Touch-up who? And yeah, I know what you're thinking: I've got a ton of lip stuff for just one pair of lips. But hey, I can't help it – I love mixing and matching my own lip colors.

Total cost:

Wow, just realized where all my money goes. Can you believe how much my daily beauty routine costs? It's pretty wild lol. Makeup and skincare really add up, but some of these products last forever. Still, whether it's pricey or not, skincare and makeup are both so worth it, don't you think?

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
