TAG: How Much Is Your Face Worth?

* Edit: I have now done an updated version of this which you can read by clicking here*
I first saw the lovely Louise (aka sprinkle of glitter) do this and she tagged anyone who follows her to have a go. I thought it looked interesting so I might as well try it. The idea is you add up the costs of each  you use on your face to see how much it all costs. Is it weird that I'm nervous to find out?
On a normal day I use:
Nivea Visage Rich Moisturising Day Cream -£3.99
Revlon Photo Ready Primer- £8 (on offer)
Revlon Colour Stay Foundation- £12.95
  Collection Concealer-£4.99

Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder- £3.99
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil-£22
Bare Minerals Warmth All Over Face Colour-£19
Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba- £1.99
Mac Cream Colour Base in Pearl- £14

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze-£4.99
Urban Decay ink for eyes in Demolition-£15 
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara-£6.99
Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara -£4.99
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- £5.99 (on offer)

 Total: £128.87

WOW! I can't believe how much it all adds up to.When I buy stuff over time I never really stop and think how much it all adds up to. In my defence I bought the Bare Mineral in a starter kit so it wasn't as expensive and a few pieces were gifts!

I tag Cole from coleyyyful.com  and Katie from gottobebella.blogspot.co.uk to do this tag next.

New In: Zara Bucket Bag

A few days ago I finally got my mits on the famous bucket bag from zara for £39.99 (why can't it just be £40?). I'm in love with this bag. It makes me feel all classy and posh.

No one told me how heavy it is! Not looking forward to lugging this around college.
On the brightside, I'll have arms like popeye soon!

My Essentials!

For my first ever post (yay!) I finally decided to do a post on my everyday essential products. These are all staples in my make up bag at the moment.

First on the list I have the Revlon Colour Stay Foundation for normal/dry skin in the shade ivory. This is my all time favourite foundation. I love how long it lasts, the full coverage and the fact its suitable for my ghostly pale skin! 
*UPDATE: I have know realised that whilst this is great for pale skin, it is way to pink for me. You can see the new foundation I am using in this haul*
Revlon Colourstay for Normal/Dry skin in Ivory £12.49
This is the brush I use to apply it. These 'painter' style brushes have become pretty unpopular but I find this the best brush for applying foundation. It gives the best streak free flawless coverage. The brush is pretty small so it takes a little longer but the extra time definitely pays off.  I even prefer it to the Real Techniques stippling brush and Sephora mineral brush!
Top Shop Foundation Brush £7
This is a new addition I bought with boots points because I'm terrible at saving them. After months of lusting after it I'm so glad I finally have it! Its a gorgeous colour to use as a eye shadow base or, if you're lazy like me, on its own. It really makes blue eyes pop. 
Maybelline Colour Tattoo- On and On Bronze £4.99

Last but not least is the Mac Cream Colour Base in Pearl. I bought this after Sammi from BeautyCrush talked about it in a video. Personally I found it a bit pricey at £14 but I do use it every day to give a gorgeous shine on the cheek bones and brighten up tired skin.
