Make up or McChickens?

Hi everyone,

Ever looked at your make up bag and wondered how many McChickens you could’ve bought with that money? For us the answer is somewhere around 150 (each). This week we priced out our daily make up routines for a little wake up call on our spending routines. The results aren’t pretty but (hopefully) we are.



White Eyeliner (Brand unclear): $6.00

L.A. Colors Grafix Liquid Eyeliner in Brown: $2.00

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London: $6.00

Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream in Light: $42.00

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony: $18.00

E.l.f. Cosmetics Makeup Mist & Set: $3.00

TARTE Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara: $10.00

Julep Glow Highlighting Powder: $28.00

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer in Light Medium: $26.00

TOTAL: $196

Reaction: So first, I want to defend my case and say I definitely did not buy all of these products at once. Second DAMN makeup is so expensive. I’m crying a little on the inside, okay the outside too, because this isn’t even all the makeup I own. Plus brushes. Plus skincare to make sure all of this doesn’t ravish my pores. Basically I’m in shock, but here we are.



Lorac I Love Brunch PRO Palette: $44.00

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara: $5.00

Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil in Soft Brown: $23.00

Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer in Light: $28.00

Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream in Light: $42.00

e.l.f. Bronzer Palette: $6.00

Covergirl Classic Color Blush: $7.00

Revlon ColorStay Pressed Powder: $11.00

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge: $6.00

Luna Highlighter in Calypso: $6.00

Total: $178

Reaction: So, this is my makeup routine on a good day. If we’re being honest, when I’m rushing to and from class, my routine consists of just brows, lashes, and covering spots. Looking at this total, I should probably make that my only routine because ya girl does not have this much extra money to spend. Although, I could be spending this money on heroin instead of makeup so it is money well spent.
