Where do I begin? I don't even remember the price for most of the stuff I use. The cheapest ones are aloe vera gel, honey, tea tree, oregano oil, and lemon juice which I sometimes use topically. 

I use Mineral Fusion products which are all relatively cheap ($7-$15 dollars for a scrub and toner). But then I also use more expensive stuff from Image cosmetics because they use mostly natural ingredients that don't break me out. The Image cleanser I use costs around $25-27 dollars. 

Cover FX SPF primer - $30 (normally $36, I got a discount but still SO expensive)

Various drugstore concealers, from $7-$12 (still haven't found one that matches my skintone)

Smashbox Liquid Halo foundation - $42 (now I know where my paycheck goes, lasts about 2 months if I use it regularly)

Backup foundations - Bourjois healthy mix foundation - $12 (lasts a long time), Lilly Lolo mineral foundation - $18, Meow cosmetics finishing powder - $16 (lasts a long time)

Boscia blotting paper - $10

Desert essence lip balm - $3, Chanel lipstick - $18, Buxom lip glosses - free with sephora points

Eye creams and concealer - usually free samples I get from the mall cos I never have enough money left for those

Now I know why I'm poor. I won't even mention the $ I spend on facials. 

PS. I don't use all this crap on my face at the same time...these are just things I have and use from time to time.

shy.gif I seem to have a problem! lol. And I didn't even add everything to that list. But I also use a lot of samples.

About primer...I think that a good foundation shouldn't need primer, just a good moisturizer. Unfortunately, if you have dry or oily skin or visible pores, you might need a primer more than a moisturizer. The primer I use can also work as a moisturizer with spf, so at least it's multitasking. It helps my foundation last longer, that's about it.

Free on a day where I don't care about how my face looks :P

I'd say 100$ on days where I do care, I have a lot of high end makeup and when I want to cover my skin I go mad with the makeup.

EEK...figured I'd chime in.  I know this is an old thread, but I figured I would go ahead and do a post just so I can pull my hair out later when I look at the numbers and the spending, lol.

 

Makeup Remover: $40 (Lasts forever though)

Cleanser: $4.00 (Big thing of Johnson & Johnson Head to Toe Baby Wash-this will be lasting me awhile)

Toner: $16.00-about 3 months

Moisturizer: $40.00, $26.00 (I use two) will last about 6 months

Eye Cream: $50.00 (sheesh) about 3 months

Foundation: $22.00, $24.00 (I'm using two different ones) will last about 6 months

Primer: $21.00- 6 months

Powder: $25.00, $38.00 (I use two different mineral powders for both oil control and concealer)

Eye Shadow....Um...I have quite a bit.  Probably best not to put a number on this for fear that the hubby may be looking over my shoulder one day....neutral.gif

Lipstick/gloss: Yeah...we won't even go there, either....crazy.gif
