Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

I am sure we all have some products that we use the most and then we "run" to Sephora (or other stores) to repurchase and stock up on it, with a thought - "Just in case or I am about to finish up my other one, so I might as well pick up a back up now... etc" .

 

 What are your most used products, the ones you know you'll go and repurchase no matter what?

 

 Mine are:

- Anastasia Brow Wiz -  ohh boy - this is one of my little fave things that I use the most and I buy few of them a year, just because I use it so often.

- Nars Creamy Consealer - does its job, so smooth and gives me the coverage I need!

- When Travelmate face masque <3 - so amazing, portable, and  travel safe/mess free!!

lipsticks - i know what you mean, i hate when they discontinue  our favorite shades and then it's like "what do i do now" (unless of course you have a back up). I found out that with little or A LOT of looking around it is possible to find a similar dupe color, for lipsticks at least

Anastasia Brow Wiz and powder...I love these. 

MAC Angel lipstick. When I run out I will get another tube. Just the best pale pink nude lip. 

Josie Maran Infinity Cream oil. I use this in the winter and it saves my skin. 

RevitaLash. It has helped me grow my pathetic eyelashes to a normal length. 

Dior mascara primer. Love this and will repurchase again and again. 

YSL Babydoll mascara. This is my current HG mascara, although I am constantly in search of something even better. I've tried a million, and this works best for me. 

Dr. Dennis Gross Active Vitamin D serum oil...I had this once and loved it. Nothing has given me the glow this gave me, so I will need to bite the bullet and get it again! 

Bobbi Brown gel pot eyeliners. I have almost every color and just adore these.

For me, it's Beauty blender solid cleaner. I use it daily for the beauty blender and any brush that touches a cream or liquid product, and weekly for my other brushes. Also Lancôme Hypnose dlol lashes. I also gave a ton of GWP and samples. This one is my HG and nothing works as well for me. Smiley Happy 

for skincare it's the Algenist Firming and Lifting serum. it's pricey but super effective.

In a month, I bet you'll be adding Genefique to this list.  It is an activating serum, so you can use it in combination with the Algenist one.  I always use two serums every time I wash my face.  More than two is silly, but when you have one that is an activating serum, it only improves other products.

 

I hope you like it.  Oh, by the way, that is the one I ended up sending you.

Oh boy! I can't wait to try it! Adding to my expensive skincare routine! True Rouge style! Smiley Wink 

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

Lancome is one of the biggest reasons I am not Rouge.  If I purchased from Sephora, I would not have all these awesome samples.  I wish Sephora and Ulta had real Lancome GWPs.  Everyone else does, so they really get the shaft.  Of my over 30 Lancome purchases in the past 14 months, zero came from Sephora.  Lancome direct and Macy's got the most love.

I had sworn off Lancome many years ago and only just ventured into their lipsticks (have two).  Lisa Eldridge is their new Creative Director.  She is one of the few people who vides I do watch often.  I am eager to see what she might do with the line...I appreciate her makeup philosophy and ideas.

 

 

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

The irony of that post is I went shop crazy and made Rouge within a week of posting it.

 

I love Lancome.  It was my first love and will probably always stick with me.  95% of the products are great quality to me.  I own SO MANY Lancome items.  If you ever want advice on a product, there is a good chance I own it.  Let me know.  Just NEVER buy your Lancome from Sephora.  To this date, I still never have.  I NEED a deal, and there is always a huge GWP somewhere.  If you need to know where one is, let me know!

notcreative, I bought both my Lancôme lipsticks from Nordstrom.  I don't own anything else Lancôme at the moment.  Lancome  face products and I are not friend s(hence my swear off from years ago).  If they release a new line of lipsticks, I will surely try that.....

 

I doubt I will ever make Rouge at Sephora because I have always been a Nordstrom shopper.  The advantages are unbeatable. 

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

I love Nordstrom, too.  I am still a little annoyed that I let the YSL rep talk me into letting her place an OOS order for me in October 2014.  I had already spent over the $125 GWP minimum in store, so I did not need the extra item to qualify.  I told her I would order the extra item online, and she insisted that I allow her to do it for me.  Rather than telling her I WANTED to do it myself, I just let her do it.  She was nice.

 

Had I placed it online myself, I would have at least gotten the 3 samples (it was not enough to qualify for another $125 gift).  For deals sake, NEVER let reps place your orders.  It was my first and last time doing that.  They will never give you samples!  Nordstrom samples are usually nice, too.  I could not bring myself to look at what I missed out on, but I am sure it was awesome.

 

When the box arrived with zero samples and no GWP, it was my least satisfied order of the WHOLE year.  And, the item I ordered was the Kiss and Blush in shade 11, which is beautiful!  I just HATE paying full price for something and getting nothing extra in return!

 

I am a deal shopper, so I typically shop where I get the best deal.  That means my spend at any given place never looks too high, but I just pray no one ever adds them all together.  My husband did add three of my months last year, and I did not like it one little bit!

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

That sucks notcreative!  Nordstrom samples are pretty good - I agree.  I like how they sometimes ship the samples in an entire box of its own with a $0 bill.  They do this when the real product might be delayed, but they want you to have your samples quickly.

 

I am a deal shopper too (different to sale shopper).   

 

You might ask them to give you some samples right there in the store if the rep places an order.  Worth a shot.

Yes, a deal shopper is a completely different animal than a sale shopper.

 

Nah, I just will not let them place an order for me at all.  I hate having to ask for samples.  Just give 'em to me like they do online.

 

I have received a box full of nothing but samples from more retailers than Nordstrom.  Neiman Marcus is guilty of that as well.  It's crazy that they do that, but they want you to get the samples you asked for (may go OOS if it waits for the shipment).  There's a concept!

I just checked into the site of my first beauty love and saw this.  Frankly, I am thrilled.  She is the most stylish person in Hollywood right now.

*No worries.  I am not shopping!

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

She is seriously stylish! I love Lupita!

Yes, LOVE Lupita!

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

@notcreative, how do you like the new Genefique?  I use and LOVE the old genefique.  I hoarded a crap ton of them before they reformulated, and now I am down to the last drops of my last bottle.  I am debating whether or not to get the new formula.  I've tried samples, and it does not feel the same.  I'd love your thoughts/opinions, if you have tried the old version.   Smiley Happy

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

I have been using Genefique for over 3 (i think) years now and i liked the old formula, i did not even realized they changed something, until i bought the new one and packaging has changed (the dropper wise). So far because i can't really compare old to new i have to say they are pretty similar - in terms of the results i get. My skin feels much smoother as usual, but i notice that i have to use the serum more often (ex: every day vs. every other day) in order to see the results faster. But over all i am a fan of this baby!

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

Thank you, @lovelykatya!  This is good to know.  I will repurchase when I run out. I love, love, love how it makes my skin feel so soft.  Thanks, again!

you are very welcome, i hope you'll still enjoy it as much!

Re: Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!

No, Unfortunately, I have never tried the old formula.  I only started using Lancome again in April 2013.  If the old formula was that much better than the new one though, it must have been amazing.  I went to the Lancome site to see what month the new formula came out and found they are using my quote on the advertisement for the page.  I never knew that before, so this is me bragging.  My screen name is different, but I rarely use the same screen name in multiple places.  That is me on the bottom left.

Prior to April of 2013, I had been experimenting with a bunch of brands in my quest for better skin.  This is the line I used just before, and I still have two stragglers I am trying to use up.  The bottle design keeps air out, so I am assuming they are both still good.  This is a natural line, but it does not moisturize my skin enough.

@notcreative, lol about the bragging.  Very succinct.
