Re: If you could only choose one product per category to use for a year, what would your list look l

I keep eyeing that nail polish color - it's so pretty, but I have enough nail polish to start my own salon! Lol - maybe I'll get it for summer :smileyhappy:

Re: If you could only choose one product per category to use for a year, what would your list look l

*Primer? Hourglass Mineral Veil
*Foundation/BB or CC cream? Oooooh this is a toughie because I'm still on the hunt for a new foundation. UD made my skin burn after 1 hour of wear, Hourglass Immaculate separates/clings to dry patches a little by the end of the day, and MUFE Mat Velvet+ is heavier than I would like. MUFE HD foundation for now, I suppose.

*Perfume? Nirvana Black because I'm newly-obsessed
*Lip product? Too Faced La Creme in Juicy Melons

*Eyeliner? Maybelline Line Stiletto
*Hair product? Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo/Conditioner

*Eye cream? Origins GinZing Eye Cream

*Face wash? Philosophy's Purity Made Simple

 

*SUPER BONUS ROUND, Illuminator? Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone or Pearl omg

Re: If you could only choose one product per category to use for a year, what would your list look l

Just a suggestion, LariTheLoud, have you tried Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo Foundation or Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation? Those might also work for you. :smileyhappy:

I have not yet! I'll try picking up samples of those next, because I've heard tons of good things about them, especially Tarte. My skin is kind of weird. I'm allergic/sensitive to *SOME*thing, but it seems to strike at seemingly random moments and I have never been able to pinpoint what it is. Makeup rarely gives me a reaction, though, so I was disappointed that UD Naked Skin didn't work out for me for that reason.

 

I know Kat Von D is full coverage - how does it feel on the skin? 

 

Thanks for the suggestions!

Re: If you could only choose one product per category to use for a year, what would your list look l

It's kind of a thick liquid, you need to spread it quickly (at least I do) to avoid it looking cakey. But, you don't need much, it is highly concentrated, definitely gives full coverage with a flawless look, and it lasts all day. I'm not sure how to describe how it feels on the skin lol. It feels similar to other full coverage foundations that I have tried. I have combo-oily skin and I think Tarte's full coverage foundation looks better on me, but Kat Von D looks better on both of my sisters...one has combo-dry skin and the other has true combination skin. Are you near a Sephora? Maybe you can get a sample of both and see if either one works well for you. :smileyhappy:

Re: If you could only choose one product per category to use for a year, what would your list look l

I'm actually stopping into Sephora tomorrow right before I head off to dinner and a movie with the husband! I'll take the opportunity to pick up a few more samples while I'm there... and probably walk out with a new blush or two on top of that. :-) 

 

Re: If you could only choose one product per category to use for a year, what would your list look l

I love your super bonus round - if I had to choose an illuminator, it would probably be Becca in Pearl as well!

Re: If you could only choose one product per category to use for a year, what would your list look l

Definitely my HG illuminator, though I'll always have a soft spot for the Mary-Lou Manizer. ;-)

I almost got the Fresh 500 pt perk just to try out that moisturizer - but since I already had the other two products, decided to wait until a deluxe sample came out at some point :smileyhappy:
