Courtney at In(side) the Loop posted what her favorite can't live without products and I love seeing what people choose, so I thought I would join in. I have to forewarn you though, I love products and truth be told I actually use most of them daily. I love cosmetics!
My mascara is without a doubt Lancome Definicils, this is a must have for me. It leaves lashes nice and long and I need all the help I can get in the lash department.
My concealer is Laura Mercier Secret Concealer, I love it because it's not too heavy so it doesn't look make me look like I have wrinkly under eyes (a major plus for the over 30 crowd).
For the face I love Bobbi Brown products I start with the Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation and top it off with her Sheer Loose Powder. I don't always wear the foundation, the powder will do in a pinch.
I usually wear Bobbi Brown's Long Wear Gel Eyeliner, it lasts forever and you can go thin and natural with it or thick and smoky.
For all things colorful I always choose MAC, their shadows, blush and lips are the best! Their products have a lot of pigment so you don't actually have to use quite as much as with other products. I don't always go for the natural look so for me they have tons of stuff to choose from, I feel like a kid in a candy store there.
For skincare lately I have been using a product called Obagi which helps me with those pesky fine lines and wrinkles.
My usual fragrance is Vera Wang, I love it. I have been wearing it since it came out and I'm still not sick of it.
This is the content of my bag, I know the full war-paint thing is probably a bit much for some but I do love it. No worries though I don't do it everyday, just as often as I get the chance!
