Top 5 beauty items you CAN NOT live without

Recommended Posts

6. my fave fragrance in the world, 'acqua di gio' by armani. it smells soo freaken good and suits my natural scent so well that even tho its common as mud people compliment me all the time. been wearing it for years now and still havent found anything i like better. my friends girlfriend once told me that she wishes i didnt wear it because it makes her want to rip my clothes off and fuck the hell out of me.. awkward moment if ever there was one.. proves its nice tho.


acqua di gio is the shit - that's one of my favorite scents for men.......

4. gillette sensor excel razor. old school one with only two blades

That's the razor I use too, and just the 2 blades...men's razors are just better.

Oh yeah, I have to agree with the tweezers everyone is listing...that probably could replace my mascara in my top five, as groomed brows do more for my face & eyes than mascara.

When I started shaping my brows at age 14 people actually commented on it. A boy at my school was like "Wow, you look different!", in a nice way. When a 14 yr old boy notices your eyebrows, then that means it made a big difference :D

1. Everyday Minerals Multi-Tasking Intensive

2. Everyday Minerals Multi-Tasking Concealer

3. Oil Absorbing Sheets!

4. Lip Balm (EDM or Chap Stick)

5. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Brownish Black

These are in order too, so if my foundation/concealer is not there to cover the blemishes, what good is it to have fabulous eyes/lips?

What a great idea :)

I definitely don't have 5 specific things I can't live without... I may end up being in love with Everyday Minerals, but am currently in the "testing" stage... I am very much NOT used to wearing any sort of foundation!

So for now, my three:

1) Maybelline Full & Soft mascara in Brownish/Black - Okay, I just find it hilarious that 3 or 4 others of you in this thread love this mascara as well! I have very fine, pale eyelashes... when I was first trying mascaras I remember being so frustrated at how gross and clumpy basically every single mascara made my lashes look. This one, however, is so much simpler and "healthier" looking really! It's not all clumpy, and my lashes don't feel "crunchy"... admittedly I've never tried a department store brand mascara, but this one is so wonderful I truly don't see a need.

2) Almay intense i-color eyeliner in Raisin Quartz - This is from the line of eye makeup that's supposed to coordinate with different eyecolors, and I have no idea what eye color this is supposed to go with - it works very well on me though! I used to use darker eyeliners before realizing that a softer color (this is a nice plum/brown with a hint of shimmer) looks much better. Anyway, I love that this eyeliner is creamy in texture, so I don't have to scrape it across my eyelids like a lot of eyeliners, and it's the "twist-up" kind which is ideal since I could never get the hang of sharpening eyeliners without breaking the tips off!

3) Blistex Complete Moisture lip balm - I don't wear this every day, but when my lips are a bit dry, this is the perfect lip moisturizer! Unlike Chap Stick and whatnot, it actually makes my lips feel moisturized, which is really the point, right? When I use a different lip balm now I'm always surprised at how non-moisturizing they really feel in comparison... very strange!

1. Everyday Minerals - Cool Multitasking Neutral with the Flat Top Brush. makes my skin look amazing

2. Monistat - Chafing Gel...used on my face to stop the oilies. Really helps with my skin, doesn't break me out, and its cheap! Its awesome!

3. Olay Body Wash in Lemongrass and Grapefruit - Keeps my skin nice and soft, and I looooooove anything Citrus smelling...

4. Aveeno - Body Lotion with Soy(helps hair grow thinner) - I use this daily on my legs..and it really, really helps the hair grow back slower and thinner. For this reason, I don't have to shave nearly as often as I used it.

5. Vaseline - Intensive Rescue Healing Hand cream. If I didn't have this, I'm afraid of what my hands would look like. My hands get sooooooo incredibly dry in winter, where they start cracking and bleeding. This, so far, has been the only cream I've found to really help, without being overly greasy.
