When I first saw this tag getting popular around the blogosphere I was extremely curious to see what my own face was worth. However, nothing irritates me more than when a tag takes over the internet and I didn't want to add my version into the sea of endless daily makeup tallies.
Now that the popularity of this tag has died down though I decided to dive right into it!! I included ALL of my makeup, including tools, that I use on a daily basis to create my school/no-makeup-makeup face.
So, babble and explanations aside, let's get into it!

So, how much is my face REALLY worth? Drumroll please...
Total Price: $243.07
Oofta. I'm really not too sure how I feel about that, haha. I guess I'll take pride in the fact that I included brushes as well as primers and setting spray, which are all products that many other bloggers leave out of their total. My other justification comes from the mere fact that my higher end products (aka the really expensive things I use) all last me 4+ months... granted, so do my drugstore products but I'm trying to justify here!!
I left out lip products since I change those up everyday based on what I'm wearing SOOOOO I guess we should probably just bump up my grand total to $250 (now please excuse me while I go weep in the realm of reality).
Have you done this tag yet?
What was your grand total?
Do you like to invest in your makeup or only use drugstore products (or both, like me!)?
