Daily Makeup: What’s the cost?

Happy Sunday Everyone!

As you may or may not know, this is me:


I like to send my boyfriend lots of sassy and annoying pictures of myself because:

  1. He lives on the other side of the world
  2. I need to remind him how cute and goofy and adorable I can look if I want to and,
  3. I am sassy and savage and annoying and he can’t escape despite having skipped the country

Exhibit A & B:

Regardless, this is my every-day look and today we are going to price it!

To put this look together 9 out of 10 times I use this haul here. However, that is not to say sometimes I will add or subtract different items; a little extra ‘nude’ concealer here, a different lip shade there…you get the picture.


In this little box is:
  • my e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation (Ivory)
  • Smashbox Full Exposure Palette
  • Kat Von D Shade + Light
  • NYX Full Coverage Concealer (Green)
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade (Medium Brown)
  • Revlon Ultra Volume
  • Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick (KOKO K)
  • e.l.f. Blush (Pink Passion)
  • Colourpop Super Shock Cheek (Tie Dye)


You might remember some of these from my post the other week on products I’d repurchase- it’s no wonder given I use them daily. Together, they create a simple, but flattering look that I personally like better than a ‘no-makeup’ style. Not to say that it isn’t a good look- I just prefer a little extra on myself!

Let’s get pricing!

According to the website, the e.l.f. foundation costs a whopping $16, while the blush was $9. I actually got the highlighter in a trio, which costs $20 but solo it costs $8. The Revlon mascara costs $13 at Priceline, and the concealer is $9.95 ( I know because I just topped up yesterday!). When I got my Smashbox palette, it was on sale, but it usually goes for around $75 at Mecca. My Shade + Light is the first in this list I didn’t nab for next to nothing- I payed the full $65 for this one! Koko K was bought on sale and as a single, but it is usually valued at $17USD. Lastly, the pomade comes in pretty close at $18USD.

So, if we convert the two USD’s into AUD, and add it all together we are looking at a whopping $225!

I’m not going to lie, when I first calculated I thought I might have gotten it wrong. Then I remembered that that is the overall price for the products, right up until I hit the pan. On top of that, I got a lot of it at a discounted price. So, that does make me feel a little better!


Do you think next week I should calculate the total cost of ALL my makeup? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Such a cute post! I’d be terrified to calculate the cost of my daily make up look haha ! Probably similar to yours, but then again thats the entire products cost and they last forever xxxx
