How Much Is Your Make Up Bag Worth?



We all know the infamous "how much is your face worth" tag and when I spotted this version at Stylist, I knew I had to empty mine and face reality. I'm one that always lugs a lot with me, just in case I or someone else, is in need of something. Lately I've been editing my make up bag down, as I noticed that that was the heaviest in my bag. That and my overly-filled coin purse.


I never do my make up when commuting to work, to me it just feels wrong - as my colleague would say: "bacteriaaaa". So the lot I'm lugging with me are mainly basics for touching-up (during lunch/after work), emergency necessities and lip products. A lot of lip products. I like to switch out my lipsticks on an almost daily base, depending on what my mood is. And I'm always carrying a night-out lip color with me, in case for some spontaneous after-work drinks for that extra bit of glam.

Some prices are a guestimation, as they are sold in the Netherlands and not in the UK or vice versa, the prices that I've used are from trusted retailers and may differ in prices when comparing with the currency exchange rate. Some items are samples, which obviously have not cost me anything, so I have left them out in the total, also some miscellaneous bits (bobbi pins, Ibuprofen) have been left out as well as I wasn't sure how much the product was worth. 

After this 'intervention' I think I have to re-edit my make up bag. Big time. Is it me or is it quite worrying that my make up bag is worth more than the content in my wallet?

So... how much is your make up bag worth?
