What's your Beauty Must Haves that you buy again and again and cannot be without.?

I was sorting through my cosmetics and thought "There's nothing here that I would go out purposefully to buy again"

Face-creams, cleansers I've bought over and over. I've ordered new ones when I've got near the end.

But not cosmetics.

What makes you want to buy repeatedly?
(Might steal ideas grin )

Another vote for Benetint and Benefit Brow Zings. Also Lash Power mascara by Clinique - literally the only one I've ever used that doesn't give me panda eyes. Ooh, and Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black Honey. It's so flattering.

Things I don't care about, mascara, any old cheap crap will do. And face cream. Just use some shite from Lidl and factor 40 superblock in the day.

Just bought Dior Jelly Lip Pen and it is brilliant. Enhances natural look. Also Lancôme Vitaluminaire foundation.

Nehru Mon 20-May-13 21:39:46

any old suncream. I agree

wont skimp on mascara or foundation.

GetOrf - surely a decent face cream is important to not get clogged or flaky skin?

QuinnFabray Mon 20-May-13 21:49:36

I have a crap tonne of makeup. Love the stuff. Can't stop buying it. High Street, High End. The things I have repurchased and probably will continue to do so:

Estee Lauder Double Wear
Nars Orgasm Blush
MAC mineralise skinfinish natural powder
Dior Extreme Addict lipstick in Riviera and Plaza
Dior waterproof eyeliner in dark brown
A Korean eyebrow cake powder by Lioelie
MAC spf 50 primer
Maybelline Color tattoo cream eyeshadows in taupe and bronze.
Laura Mercier cake eyeliner in dark brown.

If I could only ever buy these, I'd be happy.

Any old High Street mascara will do. Have preferred them to any expensive one I've tried. Bourjois, Revlon, Barry M or No. 17. Not keen on the Rimmel or Maybelline ones I've tried.

Dumpylump Mon 20-May-13 21:52:20

Nars sheer glow foundation
Nars concealer duo
Mac gel eyeliner - have tried most of the colours, but keep returning to graphite
Chanel mascara
Bobbi Brown shimmer block bronzer/blusher

I have tried just about everything (!) but these are the things I buy over and over again....will give new colours a go, but these are the brands and products I know work for me.

No, my skin looks fine, cheap night cream and the sunblock for the day.

I don't like thick lash effect mascara, I just want them coloured in, so buy some cheap nonsense like Miss Sporty or Natural Collection or something.

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, it's on my Xmas list every year, absolute must for me. Like 8 hours sleep in a tube. I like a lot of their skincare but this is the number one, desert island request.

Dior foundation/makeup esp the lip gloss. I bought some for my wedding and was very impressed, when it's finished I will probably buy it again. The foundation lasts ages, by that I mean on the day on my skin, and also the bottle has lasted yonks as I only need a little bit for great coverage. I do like the colours in Mac eyeshadows too (although I only borrow from my friend, haven't actually purchased!)

Aussie hair range. The only stuff that seems to make my hair vaguely tameable.
