You know those hypothetical questions about being stranded on a desert island? Today's Sunday Speak is kinda like that. What are the three makeup items you just can't live without. I can't leave the house without powder, eyeliner, and lip gloss. I would love to take my mascara too, but I guess I could survive without it.
I used to always use either Bare Minerals or Sheer Cover. But really they are so expensive and lately, I haven't been thrilled with them. I am loving my free CoverGirl pressed powder so much now. I am using the TruBlend CoverGirl and I love it!
Now for eyeliner, I love my Rimmel Chianti pencil. But of course, they no longer make that color. This is, like, the third eyeliner I loved that has been discontinued. It is a purplish color and it goes on smoothly and I just love it. Lisa told us how great Sephora eyeliner is. I have one new one left but I have to find a new pencil soon. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Now for my lip gloss. I love Victoria's Secret lip gloss. I know how pricey these are. Usually they have them four for $20! Crazy! But you know those $10 off any purchase at Victoria Secret coupons we get, you guessed it, you can use them on these. Four for $10 is not quite as bad. I am so addicted to the Beauty Rush pop purple. I can't wait to try the Prestige Skin-Loving Minerals. Our friend over at Nouveau Cheap just reviewed them and they sound fabulous! I am willing to try any lip gloss. I use a ton of lip gloss so it's good to have options.
My question to you is two-fold. What are the three makeup items you just can't live without? Do you have a particular favorite brand? You know how much free stockpile we all have, but what is the make-up you are actually willing to pay for? Are you like me and buy as many of your favorites as you can just in case they discontinue them?
