Make up: urban decay eyeshadow primer potion. Allows me to keep shadow on for longer than five minutes.

Hair: Batiste. Been buying it for 20 years, I can't not have a can in the cupboard.

Skincare: probably Clinique pore minimising primer stuff.

Hmm, definitely a greasy-me theme going on here!

Clarins blue orchid oil

Blusher - in general, but specifically benefit coralista, and a house of colour one

Eco tools makeup brushes

oh and Lush's Hair mask stuff.. not exactly beauty but more essential for my itchy flaky hair line/ brows

notoneforselfies Fri 29-Nov-13 02:08:12

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. For lots of things but mostly my lips which are prone to chapping. The only thing that's ever cured them overnight. Shits all over Vaseline.

alltoomuchrightnow Fri 29-Nov-13 02:10:26

ooh forgot.. Lucas Pawpaw without a doubt.. no need for any more handcreams, foot cream, better on lips that vaseline..

Neal's Yard Frankincense Nourishing cream - best moisturiser ever and smells divine.

Saurus72 Sat 30-Nov-13 19:16:44

Bobbi Brown metallic cream eyeshadow. Amazingly easy to put on, stays out all day, quite spendy initially, but one pot lasts me the best part of a year with daily use. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Fuckitthatlldo Sat 30-Nov-13 19:43:49

YY to Retin-A.

And Batiste dry shampoo.

Plus Lisa Eldridge videos - not a product as such but I've learned so much about good make-up application from watching her. Thanks Lisa!

Coconut oil, (hair conditioner, oil pulling every other day but defo morning after excessive amounts of wine-bottle & half last night, bed at 2am, up at 6am & felt almost great after oil pulling).

Bourjois healthy mix cream blush in no 2. Boot botanics bb cream in medium(thanks to MN). Tweezerman tweezers. Will come back when I think of more!

Kerastase Masquintense hair mask.

Blue Nivea.

A note re coconut oil - yes it's amazing, but honestly any old oil does the same thing for hair. I've used olive oil for years since reading Claudia Schiffer used it as a weekly hair treatment. And have used sunflower oil which does the same thing too.
