Best of: Beauty Products



I never thought it would happen to me, but lately I've been looking in the mirror and thinking, 'should I be using one of those regenerative eye creams?'


And ever since mineral make up came out I've been curious, but have never tried it.


Mostly I stick to my tried and true products...Clinique moisturizer, savex lip balm, It's a Ten hair serum, and whatever complimentary make up comes in my yearly Clinique bonus!


But lately I've been wondering what better products might be out there that I'm missing out on.


What do you say? What are your MUST HAVE beauty products?

Cover Girl lip stain...I've been using it for ten years. I love that I can put it on in the morning and it's still there ten hours later.

My must have list is ridiculously long, but I used to work in cosmetics :) If I had to pick just one - it would be Clinique's turnaround cream. It's amazing!

Run, don't walk, for bare minerals.

Best foundation ever.

NARS bronzer! Mac blush and mascara...I really like the strivectin(?) lotion you can get at costco

I hear ya, sister. I never used to wear foundation unless it was a special occasion or I had a breakout but now I feel like I need it daily! I love Oil of Olay moisturizer- it's light and non-greasy and has built-in SPF. I really like Laura Mercier foundation (I mix it with my moisturizer so it's more sheer), Laura Mercier mascara, and Burt's Bees lip balm.

Best make-up, like foods is individual tastes, everybody's skin is different. I have tried different products, but I love Mary-Kay. It is great because you can try before you buy, and if you buy it then decided you don't love it, it is 100% guaranteed. GIve me a call if want to try out some mineral powder, or anything.

MAC eye shadow.

Best kept secret, in my opinion, is Avon wash-off waterproof mascara. It actually stays on AND washes off easily with face soap. Love love love it!

I'm a little biased because I work with some of these products but I love the forever living products.All with 100% stabilized aloe vera. They have mineral make up, regular foundation, serums for your skin everything you can think of. I love everything they have!

I used to use Clinique, Estee Lauder, and/or Lancome. Then, I read that L'Oreal is made by Lancome. Then my husband got laid off, and I switched to Olay Regenerist to save money. I like it as well as the expensive stuff, and I can get it at Walgreen's. Bonus! It's not as glamorous as the other stuff, but I like the money I save.

I second the bare minerals!

Aubrey said...

Mary Kay Lip Balm!!!

Erin said...

Bare Minerals and Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara! If you want a good anti-aging moisturizer, Olay's Total Effects is AWESOME!

Jordan said...

Trish McEvoys mascara--you'll never see another smudge!!!!!

Jesslyn said...

Olay Pro Rx & Regenerist night cream. Great stuff!
Aquaphor. Dermatologist turned me on to it and it's essential! Smooth it on at night, in the winter, all the time!

Cetaphil cleanser and lotion.

Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara.

Stila cream blush. Best in the industry!

Kerastase Masqueintense deep conditioner. Worth the $$.

Kirkland Signature sulfate free shampoo. (What you save on this lets you afford the Mascqueintense!)

Laura Mercier or Tarte tinted moisturizer.

Stila or MAC eye shadows.

Strivectin face serum.

Philosophy Time On Your Hands hand cream. Makes your hands YEARS younger over night. Put it on with moisturizing gloves while you sleep.
