Top 5 beauty items you CAN NOT live without

Recommended Posts

I love reading these things! Here are mine:

1) Clinique all over face color in Posy. The BEST nude shimmery-but-not-too-shimery blush I've ever tried.

2) Clinique clear skin foundation. This gives me PERFECT skin. I love the porcelain look.

3) Maybelline unstoppable mascara

4) tweezerman slant-tip tweezers!!

5) My gym membership

I Know Each To There Own, And Everyone Has Diffrent Skin

Clinic Is Reallllyyy Bad For The Skin As It Has Such A Bad PH Balance...if It Doesnt Effect Now It Can Or Will I The Long Run. PH Balance Is Important.

Hah. That's what I wear daily, shades and brands. Except the 'Any' perfume. I'm very sensitive to perfume smells.

And I always wear lipcolor and a thin, dark brown eyeliner on upper lid.

In no particular order:

1. Tweezers (Rounded Tip) - You ladies know how important tweezers are.

2. MAX Factor 2000 Calorie Aqua Lash Mascara (Rich Black) - Playing up my eyes is important to me. I love how dark and thick this mascara makes my eyelashes look without clumping.

3. Lip Balm - I use Burt's Bees Replenishing Balm, Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in "Fig", or Lip Smackers in "Dr. Pepper" (heck yeah, OP!).

4. A Good Shaving Lineup - I know I'm kind of cheating by clumping more than one item into a category here, but... I use a Bic Soleil razor (the kind with cartridges, not the disposable kind), a Scotch Brite pad for exfoliation, and Softsoap Pomegranate and Mango Body Wash.

5. 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide - Thanks, acne.org, for fostering my addiction to BP. Nice clear skin negates my need for a bunch of makeup.

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!

Lol, I use this too, but it didn't quite make it into my top five since I don't necessarily need it if I'm wearing mascara. It's in the collection for playing up green eyes, though. ; )

This is a fun thread! I like seeing everyone's beauty essentials.

Mine are:

#1. My Chi. I love my Chi.

#2. Joico Humidity Blocker spray. It's always like 100% humidity where I live, and without this and my Chi, my hair would be, gasp, frizzy.

#3. Burt's Bees lip balm.

#4. Eyeliner. I feel naked without it.

#5. Victoria's Secret lip gloss, I am addicted to the stuff. Grapesicle and Cupquake make me happy.

Gotta get the basic going - Simple, simple, simple!

1. Skin79 Dermarx Rejunate Night Balm (BB Cream): Smoother and softer skin (Before vs After = huge difference), no dryness, reduces blemishes lots!

2. Aubrey Nicole rice powder: Great primer, love it for being colorless!

3. EM Foundation/concealer: Friends said "my complexion is so good", well...it's all coz of these!

4. Blush: EM Siesta has gotta be <3!

5. Lip balm/gloss: EM Plum Dust!
