How much does "your face" cost you?

You know when you come across a blog that you just completely fall in love with and just sit scrolling and reading through all of their previous posts, well this happened to me the other day when I came across Golden Glow. A post that really stuck out to me was when Lisa added up the cost of the products she uses on an average day. I hope she doesn't mind but I thought I would give it a go too ...

Nars Sheer Glow - £29.00
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - £3.99
Mac Studio Finish Concealer - £12.50
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil Concealer - £10.00
Mac MSF in Soft & Gentle - £19.50
Topshop Cream Blush in Flush - £6.00
Mac Blush in Well Dressed - £16.50
Urban Decay Primer Potion - £12.00
CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara - £5.00
Mac Eye Shadow in Satin Taupe - £11.00
Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Sin - £13.00
Max Factor Eye Shadow in Burnt Bark - £0.99
Sleek Ink Pot in Dominatrix - £3.99
Mac Tinted Lip Conditioner in Feelin' Good - £10.50
Mac Lipstick in Hue - £12.50

Total = £166.47

This is the sort of make-up that I would wear on maybe an average weekend or a night out to the cinema or for dinner.

I think this post would make a really great Tag, do feel free to add up your face and let me know what it totals too :)
