Definitely skincare — probably either the CeraVe hydrating cleanser, or the Clean & Clear sensitive foaming cleanser. Both work surprisingly well for my dry, sensitive skin.

Nyx Micro Brow pencils. I also just ran out of another one the other day, but I finally told myself I’m going to use up what I can of my Anastasia Dipbrow. I love Dipbrow, but it just takes a bit longer to use than a pencil. It’s way more cost effective, though.

Definitely Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation, and Boscia Clear Complexion Cleanser, FAB Facial Radiance pads.

I rarely use up makeup completely before it expires, but Nars Frivolous and New Lover lip pencils and Roller Lash mascara have been used up and repurposed multiple times.

I LOVE the FAB facial radiance pads!! I got a 60 pad tub in November, and cut them in half, and used them in the morning!! Very lovely!!

REN Glycolic Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask and Wake Wonderful Night Time Facial. I try new versions of just about every makeup and skincare item after I use the. up but I have not deviated from these two since I began using them. I think I have been using the mask for at least five years and the night treatment for at least three.

In makeup, it’s MAC’s Craving and Plumful lipsticks, Sephora Cappuccino liner and IT CC cream; skincare – probably Clarins eye cream (the one in the red pump bottle), Huile Orchidee Bleue and the Eucerin cream I use at night. I have the feeling that Embryolisse cream will be joining that list.

Paula long name TM, FAB triple duty eye, and Cosrx AHA/BHA toner. Those qualify for must have HGs. Having to sub-in, when there’s no b/u is not satisfying; online race around. Lesson learned.

I think there are a lot of products that I have gone through multiples of but off the top of my head I would say, Cover Girl Super Sizer mascara, MAC NightMoth lip pencil, Sunday Riley Good Genes and finally my Guerlain Meteorites.

For makeup: Urban Decay Mildew and Roach shadows. I’ve gone through like 5 pans of Mildew and 3 of Roach.

For skincare: Burt’s Bees coconut foot cream. That stuff is HG and my feet look amazing 24/7. Also Burt’s Bees lip balms, I’ve been using them pretty loyally for a decade 🙂

One warning about the foot cream: because the texture is heavy and goopy (it’s like honey), you need to store the tube upside-down or it will leak.

But I put up with it because no other cream/lotion/salve even comes close to keeping my feet as soft & moisturized 🙂

Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl & Super Waterproof mascara, Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, and Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation.

Probably my old favorite foundation, l’oreal pro matte! I think I went through 3 bottles of it last year, as it was all I wore!!

I tend to not rebuy much, even skin care. The only things I repurchase are Lancôme Hypnose Drama mascara and Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, my.

The latter, my holy grail foundation color, I’ve repurchased for about a decade. Now, my super-dry skin is ageing out of radiant-light coverage and I don’t know what to do. My color isn’t available in regular Vitalumiere, and I’m worried the other lines will either be too dry or too light.

I’m not 100% sure which one exactly, but I do know it has to be one of these! Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream, Lumene BB Cream in Medium, Maybelline Full & Soft Waterproof Mascara, Essence Midnight In Paris Gel Liner or Ole Henrikson Truth Serum! Pretty sure Jack Black Lip Balm is a contender, too!

Definitely the Ole Henriksen On-The-Go cleanser (now called Face The Truth). I think I’ve been through almost ten bottles over the years!

Kat Von D Lock-It concealer, it was my 1st high end concealer and it’s still perfect for my desires I’ve bought it at least 8 times in the same shade

Mostly skincare — Paula’s Choice eye cream, Skin Balancing Pore Reducing and Weightless Repairing toners; SK-II Cellumination Mask In Lotion.
Makeup — UD Riff eyeshadow and Lovelight Vice lipstick; Marc Jacobs highliner in Jazzberry.


* MUFE Mist and Fix

* EL Double Wear

* Givenchy Brun Creatuer Lipstick

* Clean it Zero by Banila for makeup removal and 1st wash

* Biologique Recherche P50

* Eve Lom muslins

* Lubriderm with SPF for body

These are my most repurchased products over the last 5 to 7 years: Mac eyeliner in PowerSurge; NYC City Proof lip gloss in Midnight Rose and Mac cremesheen lipstick in Creme in Your Coffee.

It would have to be my Dior Blackout mascara. I’ve tried others when I hadn’t reordered in time as well the abundance of samples I receive monthly. None compare. Same goes for their eyelash primer.

I inadvertently left out Becca liquid highlighter. I’ve used makeup wear days for four years. I mix it with my Estée Lauder or UD foundation.

Either Physicians Formula Argon Oil or Sukin Chia Seed Oil – love both these oils on my face. I am never without a bottle of both of them.
La Roche Posay’s Ultra light Sunscreen 50+ is now my holy grail sunscreen for my face.
Nude by Nature Primer and BB creme in porcelain
Rimmel’s Match Perfection foundation in porcelain and Clarins Everlasting foundation in linen – Clarins is bringing out a new range of the foundation in lighter shades (as the linen shade has been discontinued for awhile now) and I will definitely be checking it out.
Natio’s Blush/Highlighter in Sunkissed

I don’t repurchase a lot of things but, my Mac concealer and then there is my Caudalie Beauty Elixir, I wasn’t fond of the smell of this at first, now I can’t go to bed without spraying this on my face I’m totally addicted to it.

I am totally addicted to Caudalie Beauty Elixir also!!! I LOVE the smell.. love that stuff

Cera Ve moisturizer, facial cleanser as skincare
L’Oréal Lumi and Essence Princess mascaras will be purchasing again!
Noting down Kimberley’s Ordinary recommendation and need to try stuff from Paula’s line next.

Hi Everyone,
It’s a close call between MAC’s Zoom lash (which the no longer carry) or MAC’s Gigablack lash. I buy quite a bit of neutogena products, cleansers and their light oil free moisturizers — I also am pretty devoted to MAC’s Primer’s either Skin Refind Zone, or Skin Base Visage. I vacillate between the two to keep my oil skin at bay under my foundation. Of course, I’m a diehard fan of MAC lipsticks. I have so many that I don’t even use anymore — they just sit there gathering dust. I’m a lipstick horder – self confessed. I just got in my very first Chanel Eye Liner 88 Noir – and I’m so excited to try it. I have been wanted it (because of [email protected]) for probably 2 years! It was just so hard to shell out the $$$ for it, but I’m really glad I did. I pray it stays on my waterline like it does hers!!!

Excluding mascara, probably RCMA no color powder or laneige water sleeping mask (I always buy minis so I’ve bought a lot!).

Definitely Lancome Teint Idole Foundation. Runners up include Laura Mercier Loose Powder, Odacite Pimples and Hyperpigmentation Serums, Sunday Riley Good Genes and May Coop’s Raw Sauce.

By Terry rose de baume, BB extra eye cream, lancome bifacil, avene Trixera cleansing gel, EL night repair, chanel espresso e/l. I’ve repurchased all of these many times

Probably Pond’s Cleansing Cold Cream (cheap & effective) and Body Shop’s Aloe Soothing Night Cream (cruelty free, fragrance free, alcohol free, ‘cone free, and one of the best moisturizers I’ve ever used!)

As someone who is NC15 and on RA meds that make me hypersensitive to sunlight, definitely sunscreen. I rotate between Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Water Light, Biore UV Aqua rich or Nivea. I like the Japanese ones like Biore or Nivea that rate with PA++++. I also keep Privacy UV face powder spf 50/PA++++ handy for touch ups.

Probably First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. Since I use it for my body, and depending on the season my face as well, and as a hand cream, I go through it more quickly than I do other products.

I love Cera Ve day and night moisturizers. I also use La Roche Posey nonfoaming facial cleansers. Im addition, I am fond on Origins Ginzing eye moisturizer. I very between several primers but my favs are Laura Mercier primers. I don’t limit to those products but have them available.

Definitely Paula’s Choice skincare products. I’ve been using that brand continuously for over 10 years! And Aquaphor that I use as lip balm. For makeup the things I’ve repurchased most are mascaras, probably Clinique High Impact and Lancôme Definicils. If I count blotting sheets I’ve repurchased either the Clean and Clear ones or the Target brand dupes for about 15 years.

Skincare here as well, but I can’t really say which one as I have quite a few repeats for years now, and have no idea which came first. The full list would be: Paula’s Redness Relief Serum, AHA and BHA body lotions, and Daily Wrinkle Defense; Mother Dirt’s shampoo, cleanser, and mist; and Banana Boat’s 50 spf sunscreen for babies.

The only makeup item I’ve bought on repeat nonstop since I first discovered it is YSL’s Touch Eclat click pen concealer — love the stuff.

1. Rimmel Stay Matte powder
2. Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara
3. Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation
4. Kat Von D Ink Liner in Trooper
5. Benefit Gimme Brow

(in that order!) 🙂

Retin A-Micro, since I was 24, (cystic hormonal acne. I am now 55 and I don’t break out. My skin is oily, and it helps keep my pores cleared out. I also have been told I don’t look 55, so I am going to keep using it for my menopause hormonal acne. Second would be LaRoche Posay Anthelios 70 sun screen. Have to use it with Retin A.
