Top 5 Beauty Products

My top 5 beauty products right now (but always subject to change--LOL) are:
1. The NARS Laguna/Orgasm bronzer/blush duo (I learned last night to apply the bronzer part like a "W" across my face--on cheekbones and across the bridge of the nose, then I added the blush part on just the apples of my cheeks). I just pulled this one out again for the first time this year. I like it even more than I did last year.
2. MAC Painterly Paint Pot for a base (much better IMO than the Urban Decay Primer Potion that keeps getting all the love!)
3. Cover Girl Perfect Point Plus eyeliner in Onyx (though I love them all)
4. MAC Lovechild lipglass (this is my all-time favorite lip gloss, despite the stickiness)
5. Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara in Very Black

What are yours?

For what it's worth, I had on most of these things today (substitute Lovechild for a MAC Fleshpot lipstick/Babied Lip Lacquer combo) and my husband kept telling me how cute I looked. I also had on Clinique Supermoisture Foundation, plus MAC Mauvement pigment on my lids (quick--get it before it sells out on the website and goes away forever!).

LIP GLOSS.......(which ever one I can find....dylan hides everything)
MASCARA........(anything water proof in dark brown or black)
DOVE LOTION....(this is usually in the place of foundation...unless I have some blemishes)
P.S. I use the mascara for the lashes and for my eyebrows, just a small ammount to define the shape and make stay put....LOL.
THATS THE BASICS, ESPECIALLY IF I HAVE A BIG DAY......I DONT REALLY HAVE TIME TO CHECK MY LOOK, OR REAPPLY! THIS LOOK LASTS ALL DAY, and THE LOTION USUALLY MAKES MY FACE SMOOTH WITHOUT CLOGGING MY PORES.

I KNOW.....I KNOW...BORING....but it saves me time and gives me some what of a polished look, without seeming over done.
Im assuming that most people cant tell if I have on make up or not...I like knowing its some what natural. (DIFFERENT STORY IF IM GOING OUT AT NIGHT, WHICH I MIGHT ADD, NEVER EVER HAPPENS)Tasha

Man, I had a reply typed out for you this morning, but it didn't post for some reason.

I don't think your routine's boring at all! I think it's great to have a standby morning look that doesn't have you hanging out by the mirror wondering which liner to use today. LOL

Doesn't that Dove lotion smell delicious? I have the one for really dry skin that has SPF 15 in it. I love it.

I like your mascara tip! Multi-tasking products are the best. I tried it today with the brown Plush Lash I have that doesn't usually get much love.

Thanks! I used to use the clear mascara to make my eyebrows tame in the right direction, and I noticed that it would flake and look like I glued my eyebrows with Elmers! And because its water proof, I dont have to worry if its smudging, if i touch them. I love the dove lotion, I got a sample from Walmart......( I get LOTS of samples from there online) and ended up falling inlove with the smell, and It didnt make my face feel thick, so now its a staple in my bathroom. I wanted to tell you also that I ordered some Summer hair restore from avon, for 2.99 and I use it only on my ends, and It Smell Awesome too. It makes it easier to brush. It says to apply and rinse, but I find it works better if i just leave it in!(only on my ends though). I tried the coconut oil, and man was it hard to apply. It is slightly expensive too, but I got the little bottle. I plan to use it once a week. My hair feels so much better. Tasha

Oooh, I didn't know you could get samples from Wal-Mart online. I'll have to check it out.

Sorry you didn't like the coconut oil all that much. It is pretty hard to get out of the jar. I've found that if I get a decent amount in the palm of my hand, I can rub my hands together quickly and heat it up. It makes it more like a regular oil then. It makes it much easier to apply than trying to put it on straight out of the jar.

That Avon stuff sounds good! I need to start looking at their products. I used to be signed up to sell it. I say "signed up to sell" because I never sold a thing. LOL

Dove used to make this green tea lotion that I got a sample of, then wanted to buy. By the time I got around to looking for it, they'd discontinued it. I was heartbroken. That stuff was perfect.

Top 5 beauty products, that is a hard one.

Lip Gloss - Right now Clinique Mystic Gloswear and Cover Girl Silver Plum are my favorites.

Mascara - Thanks to you last blast in real black.

Eye Shadows - All of my shadows are from MAC but I am going to give IFP a try.

Today I am wearing Untitled as a base, Dazzlelight and Knight Divine and Prism blush.

Yay, Lori, I'm glad you like LashBlast! I had forgotten about Silver Plum. I used to wear that all the time. I still need to try Dazzlelight, but Knight Divine is one of my favorites. It makes a beautiful smoky look when paired with Carbon, Electra, and Vanilla (there's a tutorial on YouTube from julieg713 that's really good).
