Share Your Favorite Beauty Product Giveaway!

In the What We Wore – Family Photo Session post earlier this week, I complained about leaving the house without lipstick. A friend of mine recommended I do a post on the topic and I liked the idea so here we are!

What beauty product can you not leave the house without or without applying?

For me, it’s hard to have just one. As a former Mary Kay consultant, I’m trained to wear some kind of sunscreen daily so I rarely leave home without it. But if I could choose only one product, I think lipstick or lipgloss tops my list. Lipstick is a product that I would purchase at a drugstore on the way to my destination if I left home without it. However, since having Lily, I wait until I’m in the car on the way to work to apply any lip products so that I can smother her with kisses {according to my son, he is too old for kisses} and therefore, it’s sometimes forgotten. My favorite is MAC Lipglass. I usually get the Lust tinted lipglass or a neutral plushglass but I have been wanting to try the “Rachel & Ian” above.

For my husband, I’d say it’s lip balm. He is addicted to Burt’s Bees lip balm. He has actually turned me onto the product as well. I can count on him having one in his pocket at all times.

What about you? What’s your favorite product?

To make this a little more fun, I thought I’d throw in a giveaway! Share your “must have” product and enter to win your choice of an Assorted Collection of Burt’s Bees Lip Balm or the MAC lip product featured above. The Burt’s Bee prize is a keepsake tin featuring four assorted lip balms from Burt’s Bees ($12 value).

    It’s lipstick/gloss for me too. I use Mary Kay Mocha Freeze lipgloss and often put CoverGirl pink sequin gloss on top. I like drugstore prices, but am often disappointed with the color once I get it home. It’s always best for me to try before I buy when possible. Thanks for maintaining such a great blog!

    this is going to sound weird but my favorite beauty product is baby powder… it is great for those days that you couldn’t wash your hair and it is looking a little oily… I put a little baby powder in and it gets rid of the oil and makes my hair smell fresh … they sell dry shampoo (which is essentially the same thing) in stores but baby powder is a lot less expensive!

    mine was a toss up between laura mercier creme brulee hand lotion that i carry everywhere or mac lipgloss as well (i love the color “nice buzz”; it’s very natural and goes with everything). i decided that the mac lipgloss won as the ONE item that i HAVE to have w/ me. btw, if you recycle 6 mac lipgloss containers at mac, they give you a free lip gloss so keep your containers!!

    my favorite has got to be mascara. With a little mascara, I feel like my face lights up and my eyes pop. People who don’t wear mascara are missing out! Their eyes could be opened to a whole new world!

    For me it would be “eye makeup”. Being older and probably the oldest of your “family blog”..I love to enhance my eyes and brows since they are slowly but surely getting very grey. At first I thought they were disappearing but then discovered they were still there but just WHITE!! What a shock! I could dye them but that is too messy and never looks natural….so that is my story.

    Cover girl eyeliner and chapstick/lipstick are my 2 must haves. I love the eyeliner because it goes on smooth and moist and doesn’t pull at the skin(and encourage wrinkles) like some of the dryer ones. Plus it is cheap:) But if I was on a deserted island chapstick/lipstick is my go to item. I have them stashed everywhere. Mary Kay’s Mocha freeze is one of my favorites also. It goes with everything!!

    I found something new within the last two months that I never leave home without. Whirl lipliner and Boy Bait lip gloss, both by MAC. Love them!

    So, my favorite beauty product I can’t live without I would have to say is Dior Show mascara. Since the time I was young and started wearing makeup I always made sure not to leave the house with out mascara. I’ve found that Dior Show mascara is by far the best mascara so far. A few sweeps to the top and bottom lashes and I’m feeling good!

    If I’m going out I MUST have mascara. I look tried if I go without. I’ve been debating curling the lashes??? thanks!
