How Much Is My Face Worth?

After seeing quite a few people join in on this tag for a while I just decided, what the heck, why not? because really, sometimes when it comes to makeup we forget how much we spend on each individual product for our faces and this can kind of serve as a reality check as to whether or not I'm spending too much money on makeup, a fair amount, or if I'm a bargainista!

Products I use:
 - $7.59   Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer
 - $10.99 Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam in 110 Porcelain Ivory
 - $2.99   Essence Mattifying Compact Powder in Translucent
 - $23.45 Bloom Cosmetics Sheer Colour Cream in Coy
 - $3.00   NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny
 - $30.00 Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Professional Size in Original
 - $50.00 Urban Decay Naked2 Palette (since I have just got it and usually wear 3+ eyeshadows from it everyday putting the price of the actual palette is less than that of 3 Urban Decay eyeshadow singles)
 - $18.00 Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Naked (to fill in eyebrows)
 - $3.99   Essence I Extreme Volume Mascara
 - $3.00   EOS Lip Sphere in Sweet Mint
(Because my other lip products change up so often, I did not include a lipstick or gloss)
Total: $153.01

Tools I use:
 - $15.00 Crown Brush Synthetic Flat Top Bronzer Brush (used to apply/buff foundation)
 - $12.59 EcoTools Bronzer Brush (used to apply powder)
 - $18.00 Sigma F50- Duo Fibre (mine is a travel size/used to apply cream blush)
 - $14.00 Sigma F40- Large Angled Contour (mine is a travel size/used to apply bronzer)
 - $9.00   Sigma E40- Pencil (mine is a travel size/used to apply colors to the outer corner and bottom lashline)
 - $5.29   EcoTools Angled Eyeliner Brush (used to apply brow powders)
 - $5.29   EcoTools Eye Shading Brush (used to apply lid colors)
 - $8.00   FLIRT! Eyeshadow Brush (used to apply crease colors)
 - $11.00 Sigma E40- Tapered Blending (mine is a travel size/used to blend out and around eyeshadows)
Total: $98.17

Grand Total: $251.18

I think my heart just stopped! To be completely honest I did not expect for my face to be worth over $200! I really had thought before this that the most would be around $135 tops for makeup and worth under $200 total. And to be fair, I tried to only include products here that I use and wear the most often right now (I also included prices of products that have been gifted, even though I myself did not put my own money into buying the product) because many of these products change according to how my skin is reacting that day or how I feel that day, like my choices of foundation, blush, eyeshadows, and lip products, but I did not think that the products I use come to a whopping $251.18!

If you have done this tag, I would love to see how much your face is worth!
