My Most Expensive Face

When you love make up and beauty as much as I do it's easy to accumulate a ridiculous amount of products, many of which can be very expensive. I decided to whip out some of my most expensive items, see how much damage I could do and, well, how much my face could cost.

Please note: I don't typically wear this much make up well, ever. I didn't change too much in terms of my face (although I don't often use more than one powder), however I rarely use this many eye products. This was all in the nature of the challenge I set myself.

I will attach links to all the products that have been reviewed, so don't forget to check them out if you're curious.

* This product was sent to me for review.  
** The NARS products were calculated with their Au price, however I buy them from kissandmakeupny for US retail price 

So, as you can see, that's a whole lotta product! As I said it's a lot more than I typically use and, obviously, I didn't use every products from palettes etc (for example, I use the turquoise eyeshadow from the Bobbi Brown Mini Brights palette to set my turquoise liner). 

Apart from the Bellapierre primer, I have saved for and bought all of this make up myself. Yes, I have an obsession. These are also not my favourite products. 

So, everyone, what did you think of the look? I know it was still fairly nude, but I wanted it to be wearable. What's your most expensive make up product? Would you like to see my cheapest face as well?

  1. This is such a good idea :D You look great! I'd love to see your cheapest face too. Would be interesting to compare the two.

    1. Thanks so much! It was lots of fun to dust out the products that I always deem too expensive for everyday. I will definitely do a cheap face very soon! I just searched my collection and have all the products planned..

  2. You look great. Like icysweetness, I think it would be cool to see a cheapest face look.

    1. Thanks! I will definitely be uploading a 'cheap face' post soon. Well.. as soon as I think of a better name for it. :\
