I was on Instagram as I always am, what's new, as I was browsing through hash tags on Benefit cosmetics I came across a blogger who had a post on how much her daily beauty routine cost. I clicked on her profile and found her blog. Stephanie mentions in her blog that if all of her makeup was gone, would she be willing to spend the money in one trip to replace it. I asked myself that same question, and ask you the same. I was very curious if I would. Well, let's find out together.These are the products I mainly use on a daily basis.
I consider both of these Holy grail items as part of my beauty products, because without them my face would be covered with dry acne. It helps keep my acne well under control. My family inherits rosacea which is a severe acne condition.
Too Faced - Foundation Powder (Warm Honey) $32 | Sedona Lace - Kabuki Brush $14.99 | Mac - Studio Finish Concealer (NC35 ) $18
E.L.F. - Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder $3.00 | Sigma - Large PowderF30 (Make Me Blush kit) $65 | Benefit - Coralista Blush $28 | Sephora Professionals - Pro Angled Blush Bush #49 $32
I only use the bronzer on the E.L.F. due, the blush is too light on my skin tone. I love to use the powder brush by Sigma for my bronzer and not the whole face. F.I.Y. I will buy the Coralista blush as soon as I run out. Best blush ever!!! I don't even need a highlighter with this blush.
Be A Bombshell - Eyeliner (Onyx) $14 | Trim Beauty Care - Eyelash Curler $3.99 | Benefit - They're Real Mascara $23 | L'Oreal - Voluminous Mascara $5.84
I got the eyeliner from my October Ipsy/My Glam Bag and I love it so much! Have you subscribed yet?
NYX - Caviar & Bubbles $8 | Anastasia - Brow Gel $21 | Sonia Kashuk - Brush Set (Limited Edition) $24.99
I always use a balm/chapstick before and after I apply any other lip product. The balm doesn't really count. It was a sample given to me on my birthday from Sephora. Since I am a "Beauty Insider" it was a free gift and anyone can join ;) but I guess I put the price if I wanted to replace it.
Drum roll please.....are you ready? I don't know if I am since I just googled all the links to see the prices. I had no clue how much some of these were. Okay here it goes....wait let me get my calculator.
Ahhhhh are you serious?!? Yikes! My answer heckie no! I would not replace all of them. I would substitute or go without wearing makeup for about month. Though the total is flabbergasting, I can honestly say I paid for about 50% or less for all of them. They were mainly gifts from people close to me who spoil me rotten. They know my obsession with makeup and it's my hobby to talk about it.
The products I would run in a heart beat to replace would be:
Biore Acne Cleanser
Be a Bombshell Eyeliner
Benefit Coralista Blush
Revlon Balm Stain
The other products are just little luxuries to have. I love all of these products, they are amazing, but I wouldn't be able to afford them all in one trip. How much does your daily beauty routine cost? I would love to know tweet, Facebook, or Instagram me a picture of your daily products. I'm always looking for a great purchase. Gotta get dressed, I'm in my pj's, for a double tonight.
