BE HONEST! How many cosmetic products do you own and or use a day (tools not included)

[ Edited ]

BE HONEST! How many products do you own and or use a day from the time you first get up until when you get ready for bed? Cosmetic/Facial products ONLY please- unless you're willing to SPILL your routine! Tools that you use: optional..

 

For me:

AM

  • wash/tone
  • serum/moisturize
  • sunblock
  • prep face with face, eyelid, and under eye primers
  • spritz setting spray

Foundation & Concealer

  • tinted moisturizer
  • 2 concealers ( under-eye, face)
  • cream blush
  • loose setting powder
  • loose/pan foundation mineral powder to spots that need more coverage

Highlighter & Bronzer

  • add highlighter (I use a pale eyeshadow)
  • add bronzer (2 types, all over: Guerlain Terracotta Light, and contouring: Tarte Waterproof bronzer)
  • powder blush
  • Benefit's Dandelion (for a healthy pink glow)

Brows

  • line my eyebrows with pencil
  • fill in the sparse parts with powder. 
  • Anastasia eyebrow setting gel

Eyes

  • Benefit Watt's Up as cream shadow base
  • 5-6 eyeshadows
  • eyeliner
  • final spritz of setting spray
  • curl eyelashes
  • use lash primer
  • mascara (top: black, bottom: brown)
  • use Anastasias lash genius over mascara to waterproof  it

Lips

  • chapstick with spf
  • lip primer
  • lip liner
  • lipstick
  • lipgloss

PM

  • eye makeup remover
  • cold cream
  • wash/exfoliate(w/ Clarisonic)/tone
  • serum/mild glyc. peel/moisturize
  • Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for spot treatments

 

 

38 items in all!!!! That's pretty ridiculous! Is anyone else this bad?

Right now NONE!

Usually

-Yes to Tomatoes Daily Pore Scrub

-Yes to Tomatoes Daily Repair Treatment

 

-Urban Decay Eye-shadow Primer

-Holika Holika BB in Clearing

-Physicians Formula Concealer (only sometimes)

-Korres Powder Blush 

-Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder

I'm at a max of 15 usually. I use to feel like I went overboard. Sometimes I do what you do and use a mineral foundation for more coverage but most days I don't. Same thing with bronzer, I was using it often and now I just kinda quit, blush does more for me. I have a permanent dark line under my cheekbones anyways. I guess because they are prominent. I would love to do more with highlighting, not much shows up on my pale skin though.

In the morning, it's FAB cleanser + Mia2, followed by FAB Anti-Redness serum & an SPF 15 moisturizer.  Then I move on to make-up: Kat Von D concealer, MUFE liquid foundation, MUFE powder foundation to set, a little clear mascara, and some light colored cream stain.  I'm still getting used to wearing make-up, so I'm keeping it simple until I can get everything down pat.

 

When I get home, remove the make-up with a cleansing cloth, then before bed I use an anti-redness cleanser + Mia2, FAB moisturizer and Wild Rose + Vit C Korres sleeping mask.  I finish off with a minted rose lip balm, as my lips tend to crack in my sleep, and I wind up chewing all the skin off.

Wow, I was always thinking less was more. I guess I had better get a longer routine going. I use Olay exfoliating wash in the shower. Moisturizer, primer, foundation, blush, lip liner, lip stick, eyeliner and eyeshadow. I did get a couple nice compliments this week that said there was no way I was 39. At night I wash with face wash and finish with youth code.

No mascara? Wow.... I have to at least wear lip gloss, concealer, and mascara... and you must have really nice skin that you don't need primers! *jealous!!*

My eyelashes are too long and mascara gets on my glasses. I guess because I am disabled and don't work, I don't have to make sure my makeup survives 10 hours. Plus having lupus, it hurts too much to stand in front of a mirror for too long. My husband loves a more natural look and to be honest, so do I. That being said I think everyone should do what makes them happy. I think you guys that use a lot of products are taking pride in your appearance and there is nothing wrong with that. I love experimenting with different eye shadow color combinations. Now that my daughter is away at college I don't have anyone to help with their makeup. That is what I really love to do.

Re: BE HONEST! How many cosmetic products do you own and or use a day (tools not included)

Ah, the 30+ items thing is when I go all out. Most of the time I don't even wear make up, altho I do have a lengthy shower routine to rival your makeup routine....

 

AM:

- wash/clean with water/facial towel

- eye cream

- moisturizer with SPF

- lip balm with SPF (sometimes tinted)

- curl eyelashes

 

PM:

- cleanser, sometimes with a brush

- scrub or mask

- toner

- serum

- eye cream

- moisturizer

- lip balm

 

My mile long de-stress shower routine:

  1. Phyto scalp treatment
  2. hair oil as pre-shower treatment
  3. shampoo (in the shower)
  4. Ouidad scalp exfoliator
  5. body wash
  6. shaving cream/conditioner
  7. facial scrub
  8. facial cleanser
  9. feet scrub
  10. face mask (out of the shower)
  11. toner
  12. serum
  13. eye cream
  14. moisturizer
  15. lip balm
  16. toning treatment for thigh/butt
  17. body lotion
  18. foot cream
  19. serum/oil/treatment for scars
  20. Ok, if I'm really dragging it out. Grooming (plucking eyebrows, clipping nails, and a coat of nail strengthener)

Oh my gosh, so that's why it always take me ~40min to shower from beginning to end....o.o

Your shower routine definitely trumps mine!

 

IN the shower ONLY:

  • I shampoo my hair with 3 different Alterna shampoos (cleansing, volumizing, anti-aging)
  • Alterna conditioner (anti-aging)
  • argan oil added to the tips.
  • wash with antbacterial soap
  • exfoliate my whole body with scrubs and loofa x2
  • razer w/ shave lotion
  • body wash
  • body oil
  • face: cleanse & exfoliate in shower

 

What do you use for scar cream? I use Mederma, but it makes me breakout.

LOL, I'm the infamous 3-5 minute showerer! Of course, during the summer I take a nighty bath to soak- and shave.
