1. Philosophy Kiss Me Exfoliating Scrub:

This has been saving my dry lips. I just apply it like lip balm and rub my lips together. 

2. Mac Lipsticks: Lush Amber, Hug Me:

I'm so glad I got a backup of Lush Amber, because it is the perfect neutral nude without looking ashy or as if I'm trying hard.  Hug me is my all time favorite everyday lipstick.  Its a pinky-brown nude.

3. Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

This is the first primer I've ever bought/tried and I've been using it for the past couple of months. I have super oily lids, but this helps keep my eyeshadows on without creasing or fading throughout the day.  

4. Mac Prep + Prime Vibrancy Eye Primer

I've learned to love this primer for under my eyes. It helps my concealers glide on easier and stay on longer.  

5. Mac SuperSlick Liquid Eye Liner

When I decided I was comfortable enough to start wearing makeup after my lasik surgery, this was the first liner I grabbed. I knew I still had to put in moisturizing drops in my eyes, so I wanted a liner that wouldn't smudge while I do so throughout the day.  This liner is the longest wearing liner without smudging that I own.

6. Black Opal Concealer

I discovered this concealer this month, and is the only one that I have reached for. It matches me perfectly and looks very naturally. It's opaque without being thick and it covers my dark circles wonderfully.

7. Bare Escentuals Rare Minerals Renew & Reveal Facial cleaner

I bought this cleanser Oct 2010, I believe Bare Escentuals has stopped making it.  It's too bad because this cleanser has scrubbed away my dead skin without drying my skin too much and without being as harsh as the St. Ives Apricot scrub.  I used to use this twice a day, but now I just do it once a day or once every other day because my skin has been looking healthy.

8. Boscia Luminzing Black Mask

I use this mask once every two weeks, and I think it does more of a deep clean, and it also helps control my white heads.  This along with my facial cleanser have made my skin acne-free and looking fresh.  

9. Boscia Blotting Linens

These are a life saver! I have a super oily t-zone (my nose and my forehead) and these soak it all up in an instant. This is always in my makeup bag.  

10. Sephora Atomizer 

I sometimes forget to put on perfume in the morning for work, so I decided to get this and leave it in my makeup bag. This is perfect and easy to use.  It's not messy at all. All I have to do is take off the top of the perfume and place this above it and start pumping. That's it! and I like that there is a little window so that you can see when you have to refill it again.
