My father retorts.

His sarcastic jabs at my makeup are accurate though. Seeing as I do love purchasing new products to play. Though it did make me ponder at the amount I spend. Not just on all my makeup but the makeup I use regularly. So how much do I spend on my everyday face?

And is it worth it?

I expected my base to be the most expensive. A mix of High-End and Drugstore finds. Some products many can skip. But sprays and highlighters are a necessity. So wow, only B$329.50. We're off to a great start.

Though I have an Eyebrow Tutorial up on my Youtube channel, I stick to brow powders most days. The quickest way to create shape, setting it with a brow gel afterwards.

For everyday, I do not like wearing too much eyeshadows. I only use two shadows, a base and highlight. The other products are to enlarge my eyes, which are my favourite features. So I focus using eyeliners and a good pair of lashes.

   |   NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi :   B$16.90   |   US$6

Estimate :   B$16.90   |   US$6

For lips, I usually wear a lip liner just in case.

However, for today, I reignited my love for NYX lip creams. The mousse texture did not need a lip liner, as it was so close to my original lip colour. My only complaint is the price tag. What is a suppose to be a drugstore product is sold here as Mid-range.

Welp. Now we know where all my money goes.

More than anything, this makes me realize the difference between South East Asian prices and American prices. High-End western products are definitely more expensive and yet, I still buy it consistently.

Why? Because no matter the price, makeup is amazing. And definitely worth it.

*Prices may vary. 
Some are based on Singapore/Malaysia sales.
Some are conversions of US cost.
