The cost of my face.

So I was perusing through blogs yesterday, as per usual, and came across this post over at elevatormusik and subsequently Alyse's and Jennie's blogs. Quite a few bloggers at the moment have been calculating how much the entirety of their every day make up costs them, which is really quite interesting actually. And so I have decided to do the same.

Now what I wear make-up wise changes from day to day, dependant on how much time I have in the morning to get ready etc, so I've done this in two bits:
Firstly, what I wear every day:


And secondly, what I add on to that if I have the time:


In the first picture:
Avon SuperExtend Mascara: £8.50
Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch Concealer - £4.99
Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Eyeliner - £2.99
No7 Protect and Perfect Lipcare - £9
Barry M lipstick - £4.49
= £29.97

And the second:
Avon Calming Effects Skin Revival Foundation - £10.50
Rimmel Multi-Tonal Powder Blush - £5.19
Natural Collection Pressed Powder - £1.99
Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Liner - £3.99
Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil - £2.99
No7 Stay Perfect Smoothing & Brightening Eye Base - £7.75
Sleek Makeup I-Divine 12 Piece Shadow Storm - £6.49
= £38.90

Totalling = £68.87.

When I first saw this, I was little bit surprised, as it's quite a lot of money for a penniless student such as myself, but then I pondered for a while and realised that in actual fact, it's not a lot at all. Considering that - with the exception of the mascara - I'll have these products for six months - or more - meaning I'm only spending about 40p a day, which is nothing! (At least, I think it equalled 40p, but my maths is shocking, if anyone can correct me, please do!)

I'd be quite interested to know if you've done this, link me to the post if you have :) Oh and check out the posts of the three girls I mentioned! :)
