My Daily Must Haves...

Becky of Strumpets Crumpets gave us a peek into her makeup bag, and I don't know if you are like me but I love seeing what other ladies use! I am a girly girl! I love beauty products and I am a sucker for anything new. I might be the only person that actually reads makeup ads in my magazines. Scott laughs at me for this. Do any of you do this? Or is it just me?

Well, here is a peek into the things I use on a daily basis:

Starting in the back from left to right:
1. Garnier Fructis Style Wonder Waves- This product works magic on my hair. Ever since I had layers added to my hair, I haven't picked up a blow dryer. I just let it air dry and spritz this stuff throughout. It truely works magic on my normally stick straight hair.
2. Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer- Now that the weather is getting warmer I will start using this as my foundation. I don't like that heavy feeling of foundation when it gets to hot. This is perfect because it has just a hint of shimmer in it too.
3. Philosophy Falling in Love perfume- Best sweet scent for the summer. Not too heavy which is great but so sweet smelling.
4. Sally Hansen Strong as Nails- I try to put this on at least every other day. My nails do not grow but this at least keeps them from peeling! I have given up on having long nails.
5. Physicans Formula Organic Wear Mascara- in Ultra Black. My eyes are very sensitive and for awhile I had major issues with bloodshot eyes. I started trying different brands and really didn't think an "organic" mascara would actually do anything. I fell in LOVE!! This stuff is wonderful. It doesn't clump and it seperates my lashes perfectly!! Plus the contanier and its packaging is 100% biodegradable!
6. Bath & Body Works Moonlight Magic Body Cream- It has been several years since I have been in this store. I made myself use up all the lotions and body washes I had before I went back. I was immediatly drawn to this scent because it reminds me alot of my Falling in Love perfume. Perfect for the summer!

7. Avon Lipgloss Glazewear-I don't know the name because the sticker has come off. I wear this daily. It doesn't have that sticky feeling that I find most lipglosses have.
8. Kat Von D Lipgloss- in Hellbent. This is a very deep red so I only wear it at night. Most reds tend to be too orange with my skintone but this one is the perfect shade of red.
9.Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation- in Nude Beige. This is my foundation in the winter/fall months. It is still a light formula with good coverage. I also use a Mac foundation brush to apply it which applies it so evenly.
10.Chapstick- Plain and simple chapstick. Nothing fancy. I have this everywhere. Purse, work desks, nightstand, coffee table...you get the picture!
11. Physician's Formula Organic Wear Pressed Powder- in Translucent Medium. After I tried their mascara I decided to try their powder. It did not disappoint.
12. Cover Girl & Olay Eye Concealer- in light. WOW!!! First off you are diffently getting your money's worth with this product. It is a huge amount for only around $7! Plus it has Oil of Olay moisturizer swirled in it which is great for the delicate eye area.
13. Loreal Voluminous Liquid/Felt Eyeliner-in black. I lack any coordination when it comes to applying liquid eyeliner. I tend to end up looking like a clown. However... I swear by this eyeliner. The felt tip pen which is shaped like a calligrahpy pen guarantees that you will not look like you belong in a circus ring! Try it!!! Now!!
14. Mac Eyeshadow- My favorite eyeshadow ever! I have several different colors, but am mainly wearing Naked Lunch and Trax.
15. Nars Blush-in Orgasm. This was one of those purchases that was pursuaded by a magazine article. They swore that it was the perfect color for everyone! Well... they didn't lie. It really does look good on any skin tone! It is a little pricey but it lasts for years! I have been wearing it for the past 5 years.

So there you have it! My go to products! So I want to know... are you a makeup/beauty product junkie? What is your must have product?? I would love for you to join in and post what is inside your makeup bag. If you do...please link it in the comment section so I can see.

I will be back tomorrow for the one year anniversary giveaway!!!
XOXO

My sister loves that Nars Blush, I may have to try it! And that cover girl& Olay Eye Concealer is awesome sounding - I feel like I ALWAYS look tired! I can't keep my nails long to save my life or nail polish on them.
You remind me of my sister, she actually reads all about the products too. She studies them, so I just ask her what's best :)

Thanks for sharing! ps I love that little pink elephant!!

I remember in my 20's I could've written an awesome post about the products I used...nowadays I don't wear makeup just
'Whip stick' by Lush Cosmetics and in the evening I curl my lashes and add a nice lipstick currently Revlon in Rum Raisin. I wash my face with Spectro Gel for sensitive skin have for about 12 years...that's it! :)
I loved reading your list! and I'm curious to try that blush :) xo
