A few nights ago I was scrolling through Hanna's lovely blog (HannaTalks) and found her post about the products she regularly uses in her beauty routine. Now, I'm not a beauty blogger, I'm actually quite poor when it comes to beauty, but over the past year I've really started to wear more products and purchased a silly amount of make-up.
It only seems right I give this a go then doesn't it?
Some of these items only became a staple in the past 2 months, but all of them are only my face almost daily.
Face: Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - £3.99 | Topshop 'Head Over Heels' Cream Blush - £7.00 | Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - £4.19 | Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat - £25.00 | Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation - £8.99
Eyes: L'Oreal Superliner - £6.99 | Collection Little Mix 'Perrie' Mascara - £2.99 | Maybelline Falsies - £7.99 | Collection Little Mix All About The Eyes Palette - £3.19
Lips: Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub - £5.50 | Burt's Bees Original Lip Balm - £3.69 | Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick '101' - £5.49 | Topshop 'Back In The Game' Lip Bullet - £8.00
Brushes: Topshop Eyebrow - £4.00 | Real Techniques Stippling - £11.99 | Real Techniques Expert Face - £9.99 | Real Techniques Multi-Task - £20.99 (part of the Travel Essentials kit)
Skin Care: No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream - £13.50 | Garnier Moisture Match Cream - £3.99 | No7 Beautiful Skin Face Wipes - £7.00
The total is: £164.47
I'm not sure whether I'm really surprised because it's more than I thought, or whether it's less than I thought. Either, it's still a lot but considering how long all of these products last, it's not all that much really. Plus, I know I didn't really pay out all of that money on these products.
The majority of these items were purchased on promotional offers, gifted or purchased from cheaper online sources. Most of the prices were taken from the Boots or Superdrug websites. For the Real Techniques brushes, I would definitely recommend eBay or Amazon as they are much cheaper.
Have you worked out how much you spend on beauty products? Drop me a comment below with your total or a link to your posts.
Ps. My mum and I booked a trip to Paris today for May! Ahh!
