The Items I ALWAYS Have On Hand: See Also: Favorite Beauty Products

Does anyone else ever get annoyed when your husband gets ready for a 'fancy night out' in less than 20 minutes, and you are faced with the inevitable 90-minute process that stands between you and that tall glass of champagne?

As a woman, I have a certain number of things that have become a part of my daily routine, and after many years of trial an error, I have a few beauty products that I just cannot live without. So, whether I am on the road for work, or just getting ready for a night out with friends, there are a few items that are never far from my side, and I wanted to share them with you!



1. Avon Glimmersticks. I flat out love these things. I don't wear a ton of makeup, but I always wear eyeliner when I do. I have tried many, many types of eyeliner, and not until I tried these did I truly fall in love with an eyeliner. If you haven't tried them out, my friend Shannon sells them here!

2. I mentioned this next item in my very first vlog a few weeks back. I was introduced to the 'Yes! Cucumber Facial Towelettes' by one of my besties, and I haven't looked back since. I bring them with me everywhere, and just love being able to use a single towelette to clean my face before bed. These are a definite must-have!

3. Clinique Stay-Matte Oil Free Makeup. This is the newest item on my list. I ordered a free sample of it from Sephora with my last order, and I squeezed that little sample to death. Ever since I went off the pill, my skin has been changing, and this stuff has been a lifesaver. Now I can dab this on, and get complete and even coverage. And, best of all? It stays on all day so I never have to worry about touch-ups!

4. Nars Blush in Super Orgasm. Don't let the name scare you.  I was a little intimidated at first too, but I went for it, and I don't know that I'll ever order another blush again. I love the pops of gold and bright pink in this shade. It's perfecdt for a splash of cheek color for a night out, or just a day of errands.


All of these items are simple, easy to pack and take with you on-the-go, and none of them tote a huge price tag. Throw together a little cosmetic bag and take it with you on your next trip, or give it as a gift to your friends, bridesmaids, etc!

I am a recent addict of the "say yes" products. They're amazing and I dig smelling like a cucumber a lot more than I ever thought I could.

I use NARS Orgasm, and I have *almost* bought Super Orgasm multiple times! Looks so pretty!

is the clinique heavy like foundation or is it more of a tinted moisturizer? i currently use mac studio fax (kind of a pressed powder/foundation), but sometimes i feel like it wears off over the course of the day.

I'm a big fan of Nars blush! And the facial towelettes! They are the best thing ever!

Amber said...

I use NARS orgasm, and love it. I just started using "Yes to Blueberries" and like it, but it smells too sweet. I will have to try the cucumber!
