    Everything else is completely inconsistent and changes from week to week because I’m experimenting so much right now! Oh well, I’ll try for four more: Lush Angels on Bare Skin, MAC eyeshadows, MAC Fast Response Eye Cream….drawing a blank here on #5 :) I use so many different things…

  12. lesleykat

    better stock up on that prescriptives by the end of the year. after that they are DUNZO.

    can’t live without: chapstick/any cheapy lip balm, curel unscented body lotion, MAC plushlash mascara, MAC blanc type eyeshadow and Devachan AnGel styling gel

  13. I’ll try to do my best here:
    1. La Prairie Anti-aging Eye cream SPF 15
    2. Clinique Turnaround 15 min mask
    3. Clinique tonic lotion
    4. Lancome Hypnose Mascara and Definicils
    5. La Prairie Anti-Aging face cream

  14. Alexis

    NARS Cleansing Oil
    Kiehl’s lip balm
    Olay sensitive skin moisturizer – SPF 15!
    MAC espresso
    MAC #266 brush

  15. Becca

    Wow this is hard….MAC MSF Natural, Carmex, Olay Night Firming Cream, Burts Bees Cuticle Cream, Vasaline……

    I can come up with almost 50 of my fav cosmetics but BP in general was difficult…

  17. Cat

    lubriderm with spf
    olay regenerist moisturizer
    laura geller primer

  18. kpenn

    1. Rosebud Salve – like Vaseline but better; I use it for dry patches on my face and cuticles, as a base for concealer, in place of brow gel…the list goes on and on

    2. The Body Shop’s tea tree oil mattifying moisturizer for oily/blemished skin – combines a moisturizer and primer into one while treating/preventing blemishes

    3. Urban Decay’s primer potion – (my favorite used to be Guerlain’s primer, but I’m heartbroken that they’ve changed their formula now to something that creases and is drying)

    4. La Roche-Posay “Effaclar H” Dermo-Soothing Deep Cleansing Foam – the ONLY cleanser that I have ever found that doesn’t irritate my skin; 6+ years of skin problems finally solved thanks to this product!

    5. black mascara – currently loving Maybelline’s Pulse Perfection (not because of the mini motor, which is actually completely useless, but because the formula and brush are great), Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto (for everyday), and Lorac’s Visual Effects (for mega glam lashes)
