Makeup Wars: Most Expensive Makeup Look

This “Makeup Wars” challenge is a direct response to our $20 Makeup Challenge we did in July – how expensive can you make up your face. Now, I didn’t go shopping specifically for this challenge – this one is a mix of things I really do use on the daily, some things I dug out of stashed stuff that I just can’t bear to use every day and some I just use once in a while. Honestly, some of this was given to me by PR, as presents and some I used my cold hard cash on. As you can see from the pic below, it’s a wide variety of big name brands, some niche brands and even some foreign brands. I’m an equal opportunity product fiend.

Now, last time, I made a video to show you the products I used. This time, I layered so. many. things. on. that a video to show you all of those things would mean you would need to pop some popcorn and get comfy on the couch for movie night. But I am going to give you a list of what I used, broken down by parts of the face. I started the face after cleansing, beginning with my skincare that I used and moving on to my full face and the tools I used to get my look. I tried to use products that were currently available, but my beloved Chanel lippie is no more:
