The test of a good product is if you rebuy it again and again. What are your must haves / re buys?
Beauty buys
Mine are: Inglot bronzer
Mac bronzer
Inglot lipstick
Inglot lip gloss in a pot.
Bourjois eye pencil, sadly discontinued but I have enough to keep me going for years.
Style:
Opaque tights
Black wedge boots
The White Company long sleeved t shirt
The White Company dresses

Good question! Not much for me, most of my style buys are still going strong, but comfy footwear is important to me as I walk a lot in a hot country! With beauty, it's only the base, I spent years getting the right colours and formula for the skin but can interchange bronzes/lipstick/mascara, as long as the foundation base is right. So:

Estée Lauder bb cream
Armani silk foundation (after years of flitting from foundation to foundation)
Mac powder
Birkenstocks
Toms
Just sheepskin slippers
