How much is my face worth?

So I've been so excited to do one of these posts after seeing so many of them. I'm also terrified about what the outcome will be haha. I always find it interesting how surprised by the final price people are and to be honest i don't think ill be any different.
Also can i apologise for the abundance of photos, i got a little carried away.

So before i start i want to put a warning out there, please don't get freaked out my what i use as a primer. haha. Its honestly the best thing I've ever came across for oily skin because of its staying power and drying like a powder. (p.s loads of people actually use it)

1. monistat chafing relief powder-gel - £5.85 for 42g from amazon
It just holds by make-up in place all day and covers and fills every bump and line in my face, its generally my single most cant live without product. Its just a clear gel that glides on perfect and dries matte. It doesn't let my oil get at my makeup for hours either. Will always buy this.

2. L'OrĂ©al Paris Studio Secrets Anti-Redness Primer - £10.29 from boots
This really covers the rosacea on my nose really well. Its great, but i feel it really clings to my pores and emphasises them and looks dreadful so i only use it on top of the monistat. It also stays really green so i would only wear it under makeup. Not sure if id re-purchase this, will prob try something else.

3. No7 Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser - £11.50 - Boots
This is one of my all time favourite things! It goes on so well and gives good coverage for a tinted moisturiser. Its well protected with all its SPF and lasts ages. I use it in Fair/Medium. Will continue to buy for a long time.

4. MAC Studio Finish Concealer - £14.50 - MAC online
Now i have this in NC15 when i should have it in NW15-20 but hey-ho wee all make the occasional mistake when buying things and i find it works pretty well anyway. I use this on blemishes and the like. mostly on my chin. It has great coverage and i love it. Will buy this again but in the correct shade haha.

5. MAC Prep and Prime Transparent Finishing Powder - £19.50 - MAC Online
 I use this whenever im putting my makeup on it just holds in all in place and helps soak up any excess oil throughout the day.

4.  L'Oreal Glam Bronze Duo Sun Powder Brunette Harmony - Free 3 of 2 offer - Boots (Rrp £10.29)
Now this is something that i didn't actually pay that price for, it was on a 3 for 2 offer and this was my free purchase. It works fairly well and i use it most days to give me a little colour and with my blush. Would not re-purchase.

5. Elf Studio Cream Blush - £6.50 - E.L.F
I have this in 'Seductress' and apply it with my eco-tools stippling brush and it goes on perfect and blends so well. For only 6.50 this is a great grab.

6.Benefit Lemon aid - £16.50 - Benefit
If i'm honest i don't like this product this much but i've been lazy and not got round to getting a new eye primer yet so its what i use till then.

7. Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 - £36 from debenhams- £30 from Thomson airways
I got this on the plane heading back from holiday for got it duty free and couldn't resist buying it. It is suck an amazing palette, the shimmer and pigmentation are BEAUTIFUL.
I usually use Half Baked, Tease in the crease, Booty call to highlight and a touch of Busted the the outside corner.

8. L'Oreal Super liner Luminizer Eyeliner - £6.49 - Boots
This is quite an interesting liquid eyeliner that comes in 3 different shades for either blue, hazel or green eyes. Now i got this in Brown because it came in a set even though i have blue/grey eyes. Its a great liner with quite a felt like applicator. it dries quick and lasts ages.

9.L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara - £10.99 - Boots
I have this in waterproof black. Its great at separating and lengthening i also think it adds volume well. Its an all round amazing mascara. Oh and its waterproof properties are amazing. i tested this in the shower where i stood under the spray and rubbed my eyes and it didn't budge. I used it on holiday in the pool too and no smudging or flaking. The only time it did flake was when i was in the sea but i guess that's to do with the salt? (and how much i was splashing?)
10. Benefit Brow zings - £22.50 - Benefit
I have this in medium but could maybe do with dark. I really like it but find it a tad difficult to use but it does make my brown look better as i cursed with genetically sparse and thin eyebrows.

Now i usually only wear one of these but i use all 3 of them so often i included them all:p

11. MAC Lustre Lipstick in Plumful - £10 from duty free
This is the perfect colour for me, it lasts ages (especially when used with lipcote) and i use it all the time.

12. L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick - £7.99 - Boots
I have this in a few shades but the one i always use is 103 Sweet Berry. Its my fave lipstick EVER. Its a weird cross of a lipstick and lip balm but with the full colour of lipstick and i love it.

13. Vaseline Limited Edition Pink Bubbly - £3.49 - Selfridges
This is a fairly new purchase but i love it sooo much and its always in my handbag.

So thats what my face costs haha. Shall we get ready to total it up... well my total is  £186.39.

This may come as a surprise but its actually a lot less than i expected haha. Although this is just my everyday makeup and not all the stuff i own.

What did you all get? Do you think you would be more or less? Anyone have any thoughts on these products.
