well, I don’t have a best of for all of these, but I have a few that I practically LIVE by… I used to buy the expensive stuff, (like MAC and Clinique and Benefit) but I found that some drug store brands work really well

Best Deodorant: Secret Clinical strength fresh scent, nothing gets through this stuff… its AMAZING!

Best Mascara: Maybeline Voluminous mascara

Best Eyeliner: I use alamay liquid liner, it stays on well and its really easy to apply!

Best Lipstick: Covergirl’s 16 hour lipstick, I don’t remember what it’s called but it doesn’t come off, its awesome, even after a fun makeout sesh the lips are still pretty and pink!

Best eyebrow pencil: Maybeline pencil in blonde (looks natural and stays on, its a red pencil)

Best Razor: Gillete Fusion! It’s made for men and has four blades… it doesn’t get better than this! I am always super smooth and very rarely get nicked.

Best eyeliner (waterproof or non) – I mix powder with a gel base to make my eyeliner.

Best lipstick – mary kay

Best razor – I have the shick duo, and I’m not liking it. I go for Venus.

Best deoderant- Dove Clinical Strength

Best lipstick- MAC longwear pro lipcolor. That stuff will not move when you smooch

Best SPF moisterizer- Aveeno Positively Radiant-CAUTION it has light reflective properties so it might not work for wedding day but I still REALLY love this moisturizer. I also want to try their Ultra Calming moisturizer.

Best razor-TRICK QUESTION! Yes multiple bladed razors tend to work best (I like Schick) but the real secret is to use a scrub before shaving. Work in small circles, rinse off, put on shave cream and then shave away. I promise you will walk away with super smooth legs.

@SenoritaRita3 I read your post just before I was about to hop in the shower, and I totally tried your scrubbing trick.  You were so right!  My legs feel awesome.


As for other product recs:

Lipstick:  Revlon’s 24 hour colorstay or Cover Girl’s Outlast.  Neither of them come off, and I have never once had to reapply while wearing either.

Eye cream:  The wal-mart brand (I think it’s Equate) eye lifting serum.  My little wrinkles under my eyes are fading away.

Makeup remover/face wash:  The Olay Daily Facials.  I don’t even need to use a separate eye makeup remover anymore.  It even takes off my waterproof mascara.

Powder Foundation (this is the only product I ever splurge on…everything else I use is drugstore):  Hello Flawless by Benefit.  I’ve tried the whole gamut of drugstore stuff, but nothing is quite the same.

Hmmm…I can’t think of anything else I love so much right now it deserves a rec.
