The Must Haves

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


I thought you may like a peek at a few of my beauty essentials. I may talk a lot about fashion, but I am a beauty product junkie. You name it I'll try it. Here are a few that I can't live without. 

1. Aquaphor I can't live without my Aquaphor. I use this on everything from cuts, burns, dry skin and sometimes to smooth down my fizzy split ends when I am away from home.
2. Laura Mercier Secret Coneclear (#3)  This concealer works wonders on my dark circles and it is a great thick consistency, but doesn't get too cakey.
3. Smashbox Photo Up Under Eye Brightener I tend to get dry and look like I need a pick me up around 2 pm. This under eye illuminator helps keep me looking fresh and dewy.
4. Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara If you want those long and thick lashes like I do then this is a great affordable option. I just bought this and I feel like it looks like I am wearing false eye lashes.
5. Mac Blush Creme (Posey) This soft pink color is creamy and lasts. I love the way it gives my cheeks a warm glow.
6. Nars Lipstick (Schiap). I am obsessed with a bright pink lip. I always try a billion different brands to find the perfect shade. Last year I found "Schiap" from Nars and I have been using it ever since. It is the best for a fun bold lip.
7. Kiss My Face Lip Balm I never leave ANYWHERE without my chapstick. If you ever meet me you will see I apply it every twenty minutes. Saying I am addicted is an understatement. I love the this tropical and sweet flavor. It makes me feel like I am on the beach in Hawaii.
8. Renne Furterer Leave in Conditoner I was blessed with this unruly thick frizzy hair. Luckily there are products like this to help me keep it soft and manageable.
9. Lancome Star Bronzer Poudre Soleil  I love looking like I have been kissed by the sun. This sheer and light bronzing powder gives me that tanned look without the harmful UV rays.

Sarah said...

love the Nars! such a great colour- i'm looking for the perfect pink this summer xx

Neekoh said...

I really enjoy comparing my beauty regimen with other girls. It's so voyeuristic, but it's helpful!
I might have to try the MAC Creme blush. I use the old school one (in Peachykeen) and I love it, but I'm almost out. Time for a new product!! :D

XX,
Neekoh

Kim said...

Ooh I love the name "Kiss my face lipbalm"! I'd probably buy it just because of that. I'm not much of a beauty product junkie myself, but I might give that bronzer a try - I've been looking for one and I tend to only buy products I've heard good things about (:

C.C. is a huge fan of Laura Mercer's foundation and I need to jump on the band wagon. Did you get yours from Sephora? I need someone to help me figure out which shade to get.

Nars lipstick is seriously the best. I have a red shade, and it stays on forever.

I've been looking for a good creme blush-- definitely going to check out the Mac one.

You should also try the Jack Black Intensive Care Lip Balm. SO amazing.

Angie said...

Ahh!I love Aquaphor!I actually use it every couple of weeks as a "face mask". Fortunately it doesn't make me break out and it works on smoothing the dry parts of my face like a dream!!! It should definitely be in every home.
