Surprises in your mothers make up??

So I just got home from being away for over a month, I am too lazy to unpack but I have to run out so I was going to see what my mom had to offer. Low and behold SHE HAS A BUNCH OF STUFF ON MY WISHLIST! What the heck! How does my mother know about Too Faced shadow and lip primer? How does she know about Benefit Perk up artist! I am beside myself here.

 

Anyone else raid their moms make up and find surprises?

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

I used to love to look at my mom's makeup -- I would always borrow things and forget to put them back, and she was forever looking for her eyelash curler or tweezers (poor mom!). She doesn't wear much anymore, but the last time I was home, I did use her Prescriptives Comfort Cream and wound up really liking it, so she sent me some for my birthday. Smiley Happy

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

My mom always Had the cool stuff you could get at our tiny Dillard's : Clinique, estee Lauder, Lancôme. It's partly why I'm so addicted! LOL

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

I don't have the opportunity to see my mom's makeup often, but recently I stayed over her house unexpectedly.  I didn't have any toiletries with me so I looking in her drawer a bit.  I was surprised to see Laura Mercier Blush in there and a couple other high end brands that I didn't know my mom used.  

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

Well, I'm usually with my mom when she goes makeup shopping so nothing really surprises me in her bag lol. She has some Tarina Tarantino shadow, Chanel and MAC lipsticks, bare minerals primer, other random little things. She mostly sticks to drugstore brands though for her tried and true favorites. 

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

My mom is the queen of all things Lancome... So I ALWAYS find things that need to come home with me Smiley Happy

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

My mom hasn't really been into makeup, she of course wears it but was all drugstore stuff that worsened her skin conditions. For Christmas I got her a lot of Smashbox, Urban Decay, and Tarte. As well as brushes. I went upstairs yesterday and she had a huge bag filled up on the table of makeup from our local makeup boutique! I was so surprised to see she had gotten out on her own to do this for herself. It was filled with Too Faced, Smashbox, and she even invested in some GlamGlow! 

 

I still live with my parents (they're both military and when they get deployed/tdy'd I still have my 11 year old brother to look after so my fiance and I stayed Smiley Happy ), and when I go upstairs to their room I often find my makeup in her bag now Smiley Very Happy haha 

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

 Big plushy pink hearts for you for looking out for and putting your family first ...warm fuzzies over here! Smiley Wink

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

Awh thanks! Military family life is hard enough without sticking together. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

You are awesome in more ways than one!

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

Thank you! Smiley Very Happy They raised me well. Smiley Wink

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

Which branch do your parents belong?

 

That is great that you were able to introduce your mother to nice things.  I think its cute that she now runs off with your makeup.  I bet she feels a little mischievous doing it too.

 

It is great that you are able to help with your brother when your parents are deployed.  I am sure that is a great relief to your parents.

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

No, no surprises in my mom's makeup bag, because  I pick it all out!!  Just today, I took her to Sephora for lipstick and I had to tell the sales guy what we were looking for.

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

boo no, all my mom uses is Clinique (gag)- except wait she does have the Naked palette. She got it after she saw mine but hasn't used it at all.

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

Psssht! I just wish my mom would have good things to offer. I'm almost embarrassed to say what she has.

 

Okay, okay...you talked me into it. She seriously only owns the following:

 

LA (?) Colors liquid foundation *shudders* eghhh...

LA Colors powder

Covergirl blush

NYC 3pan eyeshadow in some strange blue colors

 

I will also say that my mom never wears makeup and this is stuff she purchased four years ago to go on a vacation to Canada.

 

Everytime I go over to her house it's out on the top of this shelf thing in her bathroom and I always ask, why doesn't she throw it away. Her response is always, "I might go on a vacation in another year or two and need it!" LOL My mom is a trip. But, I respect her always sticking to her guns...she doesn't like makeup and never has...and in my eyes, she will always be the most beautiful woman I have ever met.

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

Aww, the covergirl isnt bad. The scariest thing on this list to me is the blue shadow. 

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

LOL   I am looking at this from the other side of the table.  I am 53 with two sons, 30 & 32.  I have always loved makeup and went from drugstore to department store to great high end brands that we find in Sephora.  IF  I had a daughter I would probably be in big trouble because I have really great makeup now.  I feel I can spend more money on myself now.  Raising a family means someone always needs shoes, clothes, money for tuition and  music lessons...you get the drift.   Maybe I will have a granddaughter some day that I can enjoy all the girlie stuff with.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

My mother always had such a hodgepodge of stuff ~ she was a sucker for any little old lady selling things, so all the Mary Kaye and Avon ladies found her, plus anyone at a makeup counter that could make eye contact.  She just couldn't say no to someone who "needs the sale."

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

Sounds like a sweetheart

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

Not many surprises there, because I am usually the one introducing my mom to new and nice things. I got her into YSL foundation and Laura Mercier eyeshadows. My mom is not very adventurous or enthusiastic about makeup, she usually goes for the same look most days - light purple/grey smokey eyes, dark grey eyeliner, mascara, neutral brown-toned rose blush and dusty rose shade of lipstick. She claims that she is happy with her Maybelline mascara (I think she's been buying it for a couple of years now), which seems impossible to me. She did, however, fall in love with my PTR anti-aging cleanser (understandable), so I just bought the gigantic bottle for both of us.

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

My mother's product choices are like a "best of" article in Allure - she uses Mac MSFN as foundation, Nars Orgasm/Laguna blush duo, Benefit They're Real mascara, Mac lipsticks and Fresh lip balms.

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

Haha it is like a best of beauty ad!! Smiley Wink 

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

I forgot - she also uses UD 24/7 eyeliner in Demolition!

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

My mum always had great stuff. She always had these beautiful Shiseido eyeshado duos that came in red lacquer cases. Lancome, Dior, Guerlain. I always loved raiding her stuff growing up. She doesn't really wear much makeup these days. She's always had great skin. I hope I look half as good when I get to her age. 

Re: Surprises in your mothers make up??

Oooooooo nice way to grow up!! Smiley Wink
