(Newser) – Kim Kardashian was kind enough to run down her beauty routine, in great detail, for Into the Gloss—and Jezebel blogger Clover Hope was then kind enough to add up the prices of all the products Kim mentioned. The grand total? $1,977.75. It's not clear how often Kim might have to put out that much money—it includes products that, of course, presumably last her a while. Still, some of the findings are pretty awe-inspiring: "My skin is more on the dry side, so I need a really thick moisturizer all the time," Kim reveals in one section. "I love Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The Rich Cream because I love the scent and the rich creaminess." The cost? $455 for a 1.7-ounce bottle.

She also recommends Tracie Martyn's Shakti Resculpting Body Cream, which will set you back $155 for a 200ml bottle, and she says Natura Bisse's C+C Vitamin Cream ($115 for a 2.5-ounce bottle) "smells really strongly of orange, and I think it’s nice every once in a while." But if none of the above is within your price range, at least you can likely afford her preferred cleansing towelettes, which cost just $1.83 for a pack of seven. Of course, none of this will do you any good if you don't share Kim's taste in upkeep: "I have so many friends who don’t wear makeup and hardly ever do their hair," she opines. "I feel really blessed because I genuinely love the process of getting my hair and makeup done." (In more Kim news, she apparently wants to be Amal Clooney's legal assistant.)
