Covergirl lash blast mascara: I love this mascara, you can layer it and it never gets thick and gross..and it separates my lashes so nicely. 

Aussie 3 minute miracle deep conditioner: Makes my hair so soft and smooth, and it smells wonderful!

Wet n’ wild eyeshadows: Seriously, they are awesome, and cheap!

L’oreal colour riche lipgloss: Not sticky and a very nice color selection..my favorite!

Benefit hula bronzer: Such a perfect matte brown color.

Almost anything by Reviva Labs. Reasonably priced and without a lot of the “nasty” ingredients that make so many personal care products so toxic! I especially like their DMAE firming fluid and their Make-up Primer totally rocks!

Paula’s Choice products for my skin care (cleanser, toner, acne treatments, moisturizer).  I also regularly use and love a Dolly Wink eyeshadow compact, Dolly Wink volumizing mascara, and Heroine Make liquid eyeliner.  Aside from the PC, I love Japanese brands!!  Why?  I honestly can’t say, possibly just because the packaging is nicer LoL.

I will second the Glamoflauge and 3-minute miracle.  I also love most things e.l.f.  Great products for super cheap!  I especially love their mineral eyeshadow primer.  I never go without it!  I’ll second the Paula’s Choice skin care too.  Great stuff!

Benetint by benefit gives an amazing rosy flush on my fair skin & lips!

Estée Lauder double wear foundation a little bit goes a long way when you want a little extra coverage. It lasts all day & worth the $$$

or Clinique tinted moisturizer gives great coverage too!

Essie nail polish in raspberry

l’oreal sublime sunscreen in SPF 50+

From most expensive to cheapest, things that I will replace when I’m done instead of trying something new:

1) Naked eyeshadow palette by Urban Decay. Good because all the colours work with my complexion. Bad because I have way too much fun putting on eyeshadow so it takes me forever to get ready. Especially love “Smog” and “Buck”.

2) Benefit eyebrow pencil. The day I learned that I could get a better shape by pencilling in my fair brows, the heavens opened and angels sang. This pencil+brush is really creamy so it acts almost like pale mascara for my blonde eyebrow hairs.

3) Mac Fluidline gel eyeliner. It’s so easy to apply and, I love the “Blitz and glitz”, it has a super-subtle gold shimmer in the black so it is a bit softer. 

4) Sugar lip-balm. It’s like the best chapstick ever but tinted, like lipstick. I wear it every day. Love that I can reapply without a mirror. I have it in “Honey”, and “Rose”, love both. 

5) Quo volumizing mascara in brown. It doesn’t rub off on my face, but washes off with just water. LOVE. (It is pretty subdued, so I use Benefit’s They’re Real for when I want drama, but it never comes off ever unless your face is oily then you look like a racoon.)

6) Grapeseed oil. It makes my curls even happier than moroccan oil, which contains silicone and will build up if you use gentle shampoos. Also – WAY cheaper.

7) Corn starch. brush it into the roots of my hair for day 2-3 in between washing. It lifts oils and adds volume. I can’t wash my hair every day in the winter or it dries out.

@seevan07- Thanks for the tip on the dupe! I’ve wanted to try the Nars but can’t justify spending the $ on it.

I love:

Lush’s Fresh Farmacy face wash

Lush’s Eau Roma Water (toner)

Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (I do a deep treatment for my hair and a dab to tame frizzies)

Skin79 BB Cream

Cheap eyelash curler

Bare Minerals Brushes b/c they are the nicest I own and love them

Smashbox Camera Ready concealer

…I do need to buy some new makeup though.

Fekkai hair products! I cannot live without the Full Blown Volume series… I have very long straight hair and this helps it stay bouncy and VS model like without doing anything to it… They’re the only products allowed in the house that have parabens in them…

Keihl’s Creme de Corps! Love!!! 

I could probably do without everything else but I love those two things!

@elle_z:  I love Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula body lotion. It’s inexpensive, effective, and smells delicious.

I love anything in the Body Shop’s vanilla range. And their strawberry body polish.

Clinique Lash Doubling mascara is better than Dior IMO.

OPI makes the best nail polish.

I love Urban Decay’s primer potion… it makes my eye shadow last all day without budging.

I’m a perfume junkie and I’ve been obsessed w. Gucci’s Flora the last few years.

Cake Beauty hand cream is great. It’s not greasy, very moisturizing and smells delicious. They have many different scents.

Dior Ultragloss is my favorite lip gloss… it’s heavily pigmented but isn’t sticky and smells really good but doesn’t taste of anything.

Probably lots more stuff that I can’t think of right now lol.
