What is your most repurchased item?

Guerlain Parure Gold foundation (discontinued and now brought back, but I am referring to the original, as I haven’t tried the new one), MAC Espresso/Brun (brow colors), MAC 239 (I have six or so).

Supergoop City Serum Sunscreen SPF 30, Paula’s Choice Resist line of retinol products, Carmex SPF 15 lipbalm, Eco Tools Duo-Ended Eyeshadow brush sets. As for makeup, I don’t finish enough stuff to re-purchase very often, and there’s always new products coming out to try, but if I ever finish Maybelline lipstick in Nude Nuance, I would definitely get another one .

Max Foctor eyebrow pencil, in brown. I’m repurchasing it since around 1998 ! Lol ! I tried other brands like Lancôme, YSL, Guerlain etc since, but I’m coming always back to my MF pencils ! Love the formula, so quick and easy to apply and looks natural !
If I have extra time, I add a little bit of eyeshadow for more evenness. But for every day, it looks enough natural by itself. It saved me so much time compared to other brands ! Definitely can’t live without !

– Nivea Daily Essentials Double Effect Make-Up Remover (I only use it for removing eye makeup).

– Clarins One-Step Facial Cleanser (for removing face makeup without water).

– Clarins Double Fix’ Mascara (to seal my mascara and stop it smudging- this is essential for me).

– Rouge Bunny Rouge Kiss Elixir Lip Balm (I have tons of lip balms but I stopped looking for the perfect one after I found this- it’s expensive though so I can’t stock up as much as I’d like).

– Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in 00 Alabaster (I love this foundation- it was the first one I ever repurchased and I continue to use it years later).

– L’Oréal Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black (my favourite mascara hands down- I’ve been buying this for years).

That’s not everything but it is the majority. I’m still half asleep, sorry!

Anastasia brow gel in clear.
I do not know what magic Anastasia puts in her brow gel but I’ve used it on my somewhat unruly brows & my super curly eyelashes for years. It perfectly tames & shapes my lashes & brows without ever being flaky, goopy, or crunchy.
I’ve tried cheaper brands ( ie Sonia Kashuk, Maybelline) & I’ve tried expensive brands (MAC, Cargo) but none compare to Anastasia’s clear brow gel.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation, used to be Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer but the UD one is beating that one out now. Anastasia Brow Whiz in Dark Brown.

Also Burt’s Bees Lip Balm and The Body Shop’s Shea Body Butter. Can’t live without those.

Also also two Lush cleansers: Aqua Marina and Let the Good Times Roll. I’ve probably gone through at least 8 of them both.

Olay Age Defying Daily Renewal Cream. This has been my HG for almost 20 years now. I had the worst acne in high school and into my 20’s and this cream was a godsend. I don’t know if I still NEED a BHA product for acne; I’m too chicken to stop using it ?
If I have to pick a makeup product, then Maybelline Full and Soft mascara when it was available in Canada. This wouldn’t clump on me even if my life depended on it. I still miss this ?

Katie L Avatar

The one item I keep repurchasing is the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I only use falsies when it is a special occasion- so for everyday wear this mascara really makes my lashes full. Yes there is some flakey fall out through out the day- but I can easily brush it off with no issues. I can’t see myself spending good money on any other mascara.

Pearl Avatar

The hardware! MAC Extended Eye primer, MAC or BITE lip primer, MAC 217 brushes and UD All Nighter or Chill setting sprays. It’s usually a haul of sorts because I end up running out of everything around the same time, and I always pick up an extra 217 for good measure when I’m at MAC picking up staples.

badgerpaws Avatar

MAC brush 221, without a doubt.

Second most repurchased product is MAC’s “Kid” eyeshadow. Best crease shade for us #paleprincesses doing an au-naturale no-makeup makeup look.

Olivia Avatar

I don’t think I have ever repurchased anything. I don’t wear makeup often enough to run out and the few things I have run out of, I try something new. But I will definitely repurchase my Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze, and Physicians Formula Organic Wear Mascara whenever I run out of those! Everything else is kinda replaceable at this point.

Raeanne Avatar

There are two products in my regular routine that I have repurchased quite a few times. Those are: IT Cosmetics CC+ cream in Light, and Maybelline Creamy Matte in Touch of Spice. I have three of the E.L.F. angled blush brushes because it works great for a number of different blushes, especially the highly pigmented ones that require a lighter touch.

Amy Avatar

I guess this probably sounds bad but I haven’t repurchased anything makeup-wise in the last 6 years at least. Back when I DID, I just repurchased clinique foundation and powder. It’s not that I even liked it that much–I just knew what shade I was (haha I was wrong about that btw) and I didn’t have the inclination to try out different formulas.

I guess I’ve repurchased the Neutrogena try touch spf 55 a bunch, and Trader Joe’s night moisturizer and jojoba oil.

Vichy Micellar Water. I use it for pretty much everything: removing my makeup, quick cleanser and toner. I also use it remove swatches while I shoot so I’m always going through this stuff. I’m currently on my third bottle lol. Dior Lip Glow is another one. I used to be so obsessed with it (still kinda am) that I went through 3 tubes of it. I had to find a cheaper alternative though because it was killing my pockets after a while. But man do I love it!

Fran Avatar

Probably Anastasia Lash Genius, as all mascaras (other than tubing mascaras) smudge on me without it. The Bare Minerals product just does not work as well for me. And now it seems to be discontinued! It’s been out of stock at Sephora and ULTA for a while, it’s out of stock at Net-A-Porter, it’s not on the Anastasia web site, and it’s going for more than $60 on amazon, although it’s still possible to get it more cheaply on eBay. Does anyone know the story on this? Are we supposed to use Beauty Genius instead? I really like Lash Genius itself, with its handy spoolie…

There are plenty of skin care items I’ve repurchased multiple times over the years, but in makeup, other multiple repurchases are IT Cosmetics CC Cream and Bye Bye Undereye, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light, Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (and the No. 28 Primer in winter), and the Urban Decay Setting Sprays (Chill in winter when my skin is dry, All-Nighter the rest of the year). I’ve repurchased Anastasia’s tinted brow gel but am switching to the new Urban Decay one — I like the formula just as much, and one of the colors is a better match for my brows. In lip and eye colors I’m usually experimenting with new formulas and colors. I use blush and highlighter so sparingly that the need to repurchase would occur only after a few years (assuming the product holds up that long).

Silly as it sounds, Duwop lip venom. I love a glossy lip, and it gives my lips such a beautiful flush. And I’m absolutely in love with the burning lip plumper feel. I’ve had three tubes of the original, as well as the pink, blue, gold, silver, moon, and nude versions.

Kate Avatar

probably the ABH brow wiz and the ABH brow gel… they just go so quick and I use them every day! serious HG products right there.
I’ve also repurchased setting sprays (UD and skindinavia) quick a bit.
and lastly, D&G Dolce perfume.
As my collection grows, I find myself repurchasing less, as I have more to use, but these products are things that I don’t want to find myself without!

Lys Avatar

La Roche-Posay Hydréane Légère moisturiser (my number one favourite moisturiser, I’ve gone through so many of this!), Yves Rocher lip balm sticks, The Body Shop body butters, Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance serum… The list goes on, but it’s mostly skincare products that I’ll repurchase over and over again once I find something I like!

Claire L Avatar

I chop and change my products but I always come back to Collection’s Lasting Perfection concealer in 01 and 02, they match my skin perfectly and are cheap enough to replace regularly. And I don’t react to it, unlike UD’s Naked concealer. Can’t do without it! I also think I’ll repurchase Serozinc when it runs out, I only got my first canister a couple of months ago and it lasts ages and it’s great at calming my skin down and is a fab skin mist. Also La Roche Posay’s moisturizers, finally found a moisturiser that suits my reactive, spotty, yet dehydrated skin!

Laura_Lou Avatar

MAC Brule and Wedge eyeshadows, Bobbi Brown Porcelain stick foundation, MAC Blushbaby blush and Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof mascara. They’re pretty much my everyday go-to products

Robin Avatar

Just stocked up with an Ulta 20% off coupon, so quite a few things: Rimmel primer, Maybelline Master Precise liner pen, Full & Soft Mascara, and clear Great Lash, the green L’Oreal primer, and Orly Bonder base coat. Also I found the old formula of the NYX blushes on 50% discount for discontinued products and bought every Pinched they had!

Erin Avatar

Everything I can mention was DC. I was loyal to the same mascara for 10 years. I bought a tube every 3 to 5 months. The only makeup thing I can think of is Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick. Everything else is rotated frequently.

Skincare wise, I buy the same things many times. I used to use The Purity by Philosophy until they changed the formula. I buy the same Burts Bees lip balms. I’m not as loyal as I used to be to much these days. Always looking for what works or is new.

Clinque Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips and Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder. I guess that’s pretty much it i’m new to this makeup world and also i’m very adamant to try new or very raved about products. Oh! and the Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer!

Marissa Avatar

the clinique makeup remover i’ve been gone through a lot of bottles of that stuff
the clinique line smoothing concealer
flormar black eyeliner
clinque stay matte pressed powder
dior hydra life bb cream, my hg bb cream!

im relatively new to this so keepin it simple

RJ Avatar

I think Lancôme Bi-facil eye makeup remover or Ole Henriksson gentle makeup remover wipes. Naturally I go through those things the fastest ? I haven’t been on this side of my beauty revolution to need to repurchase actual makeup items yet – the collection grew fast and I’m wondering if I’ll ever run out of anything LOL. I will need more individual replacements for my ABH contour kit soon, though.

Ellen Avatar

Too Faced Better than Sex mascara and Maybelline brow precise pencil. I go through these quickest. Next would be my foundation – Estée Lauder double wear light

Laia Avatar

The item I have most consistently repurchased is Too Faced Shadow Insurance, 10 years since I first used it and has never failed me! Also Yves Rocher duo cleanser. The rest I either rotate or go for new things.

Jeannette Avatar

ABH Brow Wiz, Mac Prolong Wear Concealer, Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, UD Primer Primer Potion in Eden and Dior Diorskin Forrver Compact Powder Foundation.

Tarah Avatar

MAC Fix plus , I love the scent of the original , and now the lavender ! Smells so good , I also bought 1 for my sister 2 for my mom and 1 for my friend .

Genevieve Avatar

Apart from skincare: QV cleansers and daily moisturizing cream, Natio serum for mature skin etc
Cosmetics: Rimmel Match Perfection in light porcelain, Milani lipsticks in Bronze Metal and Candied Toffee. Never any eye shadows as I have too much to chose from. But if I ever finish Half Baked from my Naked 1 palette, I would re-purchase that.

Connie Avatar

Stila stay all day liquid eyeliner in brown, is so perfect to get a precise and thin line for an everyday cat eye, and also Anastasia brow gel! I can’t live without it

Shannon Avatar

Guerlain liplift. I love it, and it’s one of the few things (maybe the only thing…) that I buy over and over. I love it as a primer, on top of lipstick to soften it, and it’s great on its own. I can’t be without it!

Jennifer Avatar

Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara in black peal, Philosophy Purity Made Simple, Philosophy Kiss Me Tonight Intensive Lip Therapy (the greatest lip balm I’ve ever used!), and my holy grail blush and contour duo L’Oreal The One Sweep Sculpting Blush in Poppy/Pink. The blush is becoming nearly impossible to find anymore.

Charlotte Eghiz Avatar

Anastasia brow wiz pencil – wish she’d get rid of the spoolie and have more product! Who doesn’t own a spoolie? That should ideally be sold separately.
Mac lipstick in Mehr and Cosmo. Great every day shades.
Pixi Glow tonic. Not make up but an excellent astringent with lots of nice natural stuff and glycolic acid. If I don’t use it daily I can really see my skin go downhill.
Korres wild rose skincare. My skin thanks me for it.
Look good, feel better eye shading brush. Soft brush at the perfect size. I have 5! LGFB is a cancer charity helping women with advice on beauty and make up whilst undergoing treatment so an excellent cause.

Wish I could repurchase a foundation over and over again but I fear my quest of the perfect one hasn’t ended yet!

Bee Avatar

L’Oreal Double Extension beauty Tubes Mascara. I go through a lot of this stuff. Tubes are the only mascara that does not end up smudging under my eyes and giving me the sad panda look. I used Kanebo 38 degrees for a while, and a Clinique but this one is the best performing and the cheapest. L’Oreal seems to produce a ‘new. improved’ mascara product every month and I really hope they never get rid of this one just because they have too many. Just in case, I would really welcome any recommendations for other good tubes!

Travelon Avatar

This is a great question! I have several items that are on my most repurchases list:

Lancôme Definicels
MAC Fix+(I drink this stuff! LOL)
Kat Von D Tropper liquid pen liner(my FAV!)
MAC Studio Fix in NC50
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer(best product ever)
LA Girl Pro Concealer(I have all 20 shades. Love!)
Several MAC eyeshadows including Just and Vex

I could go on but I don’t want to bore people! LOL. I just am so in love with makeup!!!

Kat Avatar

Lancome art liner and brow pencil crayon poudre, Laura Mercier eye basics, Sephora eye crayon in violet, EL sumptuous mascara in waterproof, Too Faced bronzer in chocolate, Chosungah 22 dual lip tint in Cashmere (best red lip stain IMO)

Natalia Avatar

I really like discovering new beauty products and makeup items last so long for me that I usually get bored and look for smth new. That said, I have repurchased a few beauty products. MAC eyebrow gel in Beguille and Zoom mascara come to mind, I don’t think I’ll find anything equal to The Body Shop Camomile makeup removing oil any time soon price/quality wise. Love Breath of Fresh Air toner from Lush, bought it quite a few times. Was loyal to Lush American Cream hair conditioner for about 5-6 years and would never have gone astray, but cause of the exchange rate it got so expensive here for what it is, I had to switch, sadly.

Linda Avatar

Urban Decay Naked Skin – have repurchased 3 times and would a 4th except that now I’m too light for 4.0 and 3.0 is too yellow/bright. I am a ridiculously hard shade to match!

MAC Lip Pencils in Stripdown and Mahogany. I go through them so quickly as I often alternate between a nude lip and a reddish brown lip during the week.
