Random question, I saw the post about large amounts of nail polish and it got me thinking… are there any female products you feel most girls own, but you do not? Why?
for me, I don’t own any nailpolish. I’ve always been terrible at painting my own nails and they never grow long enough to be pretty, so at the age of like 16, I just gave up.
I also don’t own any hairspray. I have pretty short hair and have always been terrible at styling it so don’t have many hair products. every now and then I actually need it, but I always forget to buy some!
i have like 2 drawers of makeup so I’m not a total tomboy or anything, I’ve just somehow missed these Basic products. What are yours?

I have a hair dryer but only because someone left it behind – I’ve never actually used it. I don’t own any hairspray either. I have naturally curly hair and I find it works best if I just let it dry naturally – if I try and fight it, then it just ends up in a frizzy mess!

aliciaspinnet: This was me utill about 6 months ago. I didnt own a hair dryer and never imagined I would….then winter came and I am getting old. I figured I would just have to dry my hair to a frizz or freeze my old bones. I learnt that I can dry my hair! Its a revelation!
nessdawwg: A facial routine, the clensing, exfoliating moisturising thing people talk about….then the foundations powders and blush. I’ve never got onto any of it. I wash with soap, put a basic moisturiser on if my face feels dry and then walk out the door. I’m completley makeup free 98% of the time and occasionally put on some gloss, concealer and shimmery eye shaddow if I feel like making an effort.
And dont get me started on mascara…..its like it attacks me 🙁

thanks for your responses! Gold to know I’m not the only one missing vital female products 😛
i just thought of another one! I don’t own a vase. I just never think to buy them. Fiance brings flowers home for me occasionally and they always have to go in the largest cup we own! I’ve asked him a few times next time he gets the urge to get me flowers to give me a vase instead lol, but he forgets. I can’t blame him though, I always forget to buy one myself. I’ve lived out of home for 6 years!

I have long hair and I don’t own a blow dryer, hair brush, hairspray, curling iron (or any styling tools). I only have about 5 bottles of nail polish (one is a clear coat for crafting lol) and my husband has more clothes/shoes than I do. I almost never wear make-up, so I have a lip and cheek stain, an eyeliner pencil, 2 eyeshadow compacts and some 2 year old foundation that I’m scared to use. However, I’m just not girly–I suck at it lol.

i haven’t used hairspray since 1994. i prefer the au natural route when styling my hair.
i had some molding putty left over from when my hair was short about 5ish years ago. i recently cut all my hair off and had an almost full thing of the molding putty. it still seemed good. other than that, i don’t use hair products.
i don’t really wear makeup either except for special occassions so i have a small makeup pouch with a few basic items in it.

I’ve never owned lipstick either. I do own lots of lipgloss. I just don’t like a lot of color on my lips or the way lipstick looks and feels.

I don’t wear makeup, so I don’t have a reason to own it. The only time I get makeup is if someone who doesn’t really know that I don’t wear makeup gifts it to me or I get free samples from someplace.

i own a hair dryer, a pretty nice one too… but my hair is so heavy and thick that it takes 2 hours to blow dry it. so i never use the thing for my hair. so i have no idea where it is. the last place i saw it was in my craft room, because i was using it to dry paint on a wedding project. i think my brother’s girlfriend wanted to use it, though. for her hair, of course. so it might be in his bathroom or something.
i don’t own a curling iron, but i have curlers. i have the most stubborn hair ever.

nessdawwg: Was it my post? Lol and mine is Purfume! Like real pufume. I dont know why really, I guess the price???? I like it, would love to wear it, but I feel since it dosnt stick with me long at all and I have to continuesly reapply it, Id just as well be dumping $50 to $100 down the drain directly!

Up until two weeks ago i didn’t have a pair of black or nude pumps. I had red, gold, some strappy sandal heels but no basic pumps…. and since I bought nude ones, I’ve worn them half a dozen times… Not sure how I live without them!

I don’t own a flatiron because my hair is straight already! Other than that, I think I’m pretty well stocked in terms of girly necessities. Although according to my friends, I’m severely lacking since I don’t own a Louis Vuitton tote bag…
