How much does your face cost!? Makeup Edition!

Hey everyone! Happy new year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a safe New Years! I apologize for the nearly three month hiatus but I'm glad to be back :) I thought I'd start of 2013 with a fun little tag focusing on some daily staples I use all the time!

I've seen this tag go around the blogging community for a while (first time I saw it was from the lovely ladies behind A Brunette Duet!) and thought it would be fun to do even though i knew the number i would see after calculating all the items would terrify me!! To be honest, I think it's really easy to get products on some sort of discount if you're patient enough--whether it's a Sephora 20% sale, a CVS sale, or getting a deal at a Cosmetic Company Outlet. What can I say, I love a good deal! Anyway, I calculated based on the full retail price, not the price I paid for. I chose makeup I would use for a nice, typical day out!

Laura Mercier Primer: $32
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua: $45
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer: $30
Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder: $35
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer: $29
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush: $25
theBalm Mary Lou Manizer: $24

Anastasia Brow Powder: $22
Mac Painterly Paint Pot: $17.50
Eyeshadows (vary depending on what I use but I'll say UD Naked Palette since I use that a bunch): $50
Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner: $22
Covergirl Lashblast Volume: $8.79

Revlon Lip Butter: $7.49

Anddddd the grand total is....drumroll....
