Products you repurchase...

When I got into makeup about a year ago I felt like Sephora was like Toys R Us for people who loveee makeup. You can sample products in the stores and theres always soooo many options for what you're looking for. However now that Im starting to get my staple makeup products down I find that there are some things I will or already have repurchased because they work sooo well for me. My repurchased items are...

-Naked Basics Palette: I lovee the neutral looks I can make with this palette while also having the option to make it a bit bolder if I wanted to.

-Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealer: I love the consistency of these products creamy and go on soo smooth.

-Smashbox Lipstick in Primrose: its my lips but better lipstick and sooo moisturizing

Re: Products you repurchase...

Sephora brush cleanser. I had the small bottle and repurchased the large size. 

Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes! mascara. I tried several others, returned them, and just got this again. I REALLY want a Waterproof Lash Stash. 

Dr Jart+ Premium BB cream. 

Clinique All About Eyes. I've got the arch version, too, and repurchased the regular in the larger size. I am liking the Origins Plantscription VIB perk, though, so I don't know what I will repurchase when I eventually run out. 

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. And the Ultra Repair Concentrate. The concentrate is almost out and when I repurchased during Chic Week I got the set with a big jar of the cream, too, so I am really stocked up, now. 

Benefit Girl Meets Pearl. My little tube is almost empty so I got the Goodtime Gals set and then got the 500pt perk for the full size. Don't judge this by the packaging. The tube may seem small but it's more than half the size of the full product and lasts a long time.

I use the Boscia BB cream but have heard that the Dr. Jart Premium BB cream is even better...what do you think? Why do you keep repurchasing this item in particular?

Re: Products you repurchase...

(0) Hearts

The Boscia BB cream was okay to me, but I find that their moisturizers don't give me enough moisture and I only like them in summer when it's really humid.  The Dr Jart is thicker and for me moisturizes more.  (It's also quite a good color fit for my skin tone.)


The Dr Jart BB creams are one of the few Asian BB creams available in more mainstream stores.  Also, the packaging, at least on the premium, is awesome.  It seems like a bigger tube but that's because it's double lined and has a pump top that dispenses just what I need.  Plus, SPF 45 and UVA protection that doesn't make me look white is nice.


I also liked the sample of the Black Label Detox that I got.


If you're in a store, see if you can get a sample.


Of course, the fact that I'm almost 50 might influence my skin and what I like. I wear foundation maybe once a month (maybe) but I wear the BB cream almost every day.

Sephora Collection Long-Lasting 12HR Wear Eye Liner


It was my first liquid eyeliner (I tried it years ago) and have bought 3 since. 


Re: Products you repurchase...

I use this but have to still perfect my eyelining method...I just cant get both of my eyes to look the same >.<

Re: Products you repurchase...

@Daniela1387 I use a lightly damp Qtip to "take away" excess product. Works like a charm!

Re: Products you repurchase...

I've tried a wet qtip but it tends to take away some of my eyeshadow. Does that happen to you?

Re: Products you repurchase...

(0) Hearts

@Daniela1387 yes it does happen to me.  But I just carefully reapply the shadow with a small brush

Re: Products you repurchase...

I shall try this becuz I always feel like I have oneeee shot to get it right if not then its alll over and I have to start again which makes applying my eye makeup a struggle everyday. 

Re: Products you repurchase...

(0) Hearts

oh I use the Qtip all the time. and never redo my whole eye. Good luck!

Re: Products you repurchase...

These are my must always repurchase:

- Origins Modern Friction

- Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, I can't live with out these two or my face may literally explode. D:

- Sephora Collection Colorful Mono Eyeshadow in Espresso Shot - I love the but they are getting rid of it! Smiley Sad I had to run out and buy 2 extras for when I finish my current.

- Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, totally hooked since I got the free Bday one and the code one at the end of the year.

- Kat Von Ds True Romance Eyeshadow Palette - Saint - its part of my every day eyeshadow routine unless its a special occasion

- Kat Von Ds Tattoo Liner in Trooper


And then these are things I've gotten samples of that I will most likely end up purchasing once my samples are gone:

- Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Natural N45 Red

- Boscia Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel

- Diesel Loverdose

Re: Products you repurchase...

Im INNN LOVE with the Boscia Black mask thingy (cant remember the name at the moment) If you havent tried it I suggest you get a sample. It fun to peel off and removes dirt, some blackheads and stuff like that.

My two fave face wash products right now are the origins modern friction and the origins clear improvement active charcoal mask!!! I was actually worrying that maybe the two would cause issues if used at the same period of time, so I'm glad to hear you have both also!

How often do you use each of them a week? Do you rotate?

Re: Products you repurchase...

I use the mask once or twice a week depending on how my skin is looking/feeling.


As for the Modern Friction I rotate it every other day with Checks and Balances. I have to say though I like Modern Friction much better and more likely than not will not be purchasing Checks and Balances again. :/
