How Much Is My Makeup Collection Worth?!?

How much is my makeup collection worth?

I was inspired to do this challenge by one of my favourite bloggers Brooke Clarke (you can check out her post here: https://brookeclarke.blog/2017/06/26/how-much-is-my-makeup-collection-worth/ ). I thought this would be a fun challenge to see and cringe at how much I have invested in my makeup collection.

I thought this would be a fun challenge to see and cringe at how much I have invested in my makeup collection. I must say that I was so surprised at how much makeup I actually have. When it’s all put away in my makeup storage it doesn’t actually look like that much but as I was going through it all I was shocked at how much there was and after seeing the total cost of it all I have definitely put myself off buying more makeup for quite some time (I hope so at least!).

There were a few items where I wasn’t completely certain on the prices as they were limited edition or are now unavailable in New Zealand but I’ve tried to give a very close estimate to what I would have paid.

The results from this weren’t as bad as I was expecting. Considering I’ve been collecting some of this makeup since I was 14 (I’m 17 now) the end result wasn’t too bad. By no means do I need this much makeup, especially that many lip products considering there’s only one day a week that I can wear it. I’m now trying to go on a no-makeup buy for the next few months to try and save a bit more money but we will see how that goes!

I defintly underestimated how long this challenge would take but it was totally worth it!

Let me know in the comments how much your collection is worth or if you’re like me, would you even want to know?!

I hope you enjoyed this challenge!
