  1. danielle

    eyeliner and mascara. i couldn’t live without those.

  2. Rose

    ditto to danielle. and chapstick.

  3. Jessica

    If I had to choose one thing it would be foundation.

    My other absolutes are mascara, eyelash curler, blush, and chapstick.

  4. deepblue

    Mascara, eyeliner and lipgloss and lipstick and foundation.
    And won’t live without MAC LE’s! 😉

  5. inani

    eyebrow pencil/shadow and maskara….unfortunately, they are so sparse, I have to use it everyday…and UDPP :)

  6. Hana

    Lip balm, moisturizer, concealer, powder. Those are what I pretty much have to have on to feel truly comfortable leaving the house.

  7. Chica

    Mascara & lipstick, I wear both every day – I could go without everything else but these two are definite needs rather than wants (that’s how i justify buying them when my funds are low anyway!)

  8. My UDPP and my NYX round lipstick in Uranus. Life would not be the same without them.

  9. RedSlipper

    Brow powder and mascara

  10. claudia m.

    The Balm concealer (freaking awesome at covering my dark dark dark circles)& powder to set it
    Benetint (used on cheeks and lips)
    Hypnose mascara (doesn’t un-curl my straight lashes)
    I’m also addicted to burt’s bees chap stick, can’t sleep without putting a little bit on, ha!

  11. Ashley

    Foundation and concealer, black eyeliner and mascara, and recently I’ve been wondering how I lived pre-FIX+!

  12. Heather

    Studio Fix, BadGal lash, Burt’s Bees chapstick or Heatherette lip gloss, No. 7 face primer.

  13. Anitacska

    Mascara. I would never leave the house without it.
    Then lipstick/lipgloss.

  14. Rio

    MAC Liquidlast eyeliner! It’s the only thing other than foundation that I have to buy the instant it runs out.

  15. DaniMae

    Studio Fix
    Select Moisture Cover
    Zoom Lash

  16. Katie

    I’ve got some very interesting staples, but staples nonetheless:

    A bright pink lipstick, ie Girl About Town or Hollywood Nights
    Northern Light skinfinish
    A good frosty yellow eyeshadow
    Helium pigment
    Purple eyeshadows-Star Violet, Beautiful Iris, and Parfait Amour among them
    Crystal Avalanche
    A good red lipstick…I always am on the lookout for a new one, but the best ever for me would have to be Port Red.

  17. mars

    Mascara (my new fav is Dazzlelash coming out on Nov 6th!!!), Russian Red Lipstick, Prep & Prime Face Protect SPF 50, Hyper Real Powder in Extra Light, Vanilla Pigment, Mocha Blush, Benetint.
    I think if I had to spend the rest of my life with only these products I’d still be good although heaven forbid that ever happened.

  18. Katherine

    Nars Orgasm blush & Albatross highlighter, + UDPP. And Maybelline Full ‘N Soft mascara – the only mascara I use anymore. It is the BEST $5 mascara. I was so frustrated with my super flakey $24 DiorShow; I am so glad I’ve found it.

  19. Saira

    Probably Loreal Lash Architect mascara in carbon black – love the way it makes my eyelashes look!

  20. 187 brush, liquid foundation, setting powder, eyebrow pencil. Then I am good to go. I can do without blusher and the rest of the stuff if I REALLLY REALLY have to.

  21. In this order, eyelash curler, lipgloss, smolder eyeliner, my go to compact in a hurry is shroom, kid, espresso and concrete!
