Makeup must-haves

I love trying makeup products, and two of these are magical miracle-workers.

“They’re Real!” mascara by Benefit will give you the longest, thickest lashes you’ve ever had. I’ve been using it since I saw it rated #1 by Chatelaine readers a few years ago.

The makeup remover and the lip gloss were in a makeup bag a girlfriend gave me for Christmas and the remover has been such a lifesaver! I’d always used baby oil to take off my mascara but it had been irritating my eyes. Lancôme’s BI-FACIL double-action eye makeup remover is wonderfully gentle and effective.

Lancôme’s Juicy Tubes lip gloss has great shine and just a hint of colour, which I like. And it’s not too sticky, as so many glosses are.
Other favourites: The Body Shop’s tea tree concealer; CoverGirl cheekers blush in iced cappuccino; and Marcelle hypo-allergenic liquid eyeliner pen in very black.

What are the must-haves in your makeup bag?

  1. Bi-facil is the truth. I started using it when I worked at a Lancôme counter while I was in college. I see so many makeup removers that are dual action, and I think that they are trying to copy this one.

    One thing that I cannot live without is lip balm. My lips have been super sensitive lately; the Original Chapstick and Smith’s Rosebud Salve have been lifesavers.

  2. My makeup must-haves include Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, Nars lipgloss in Chelsea Girls, Essence lipgloss in Nude Kiss, Essence Sun Club matt bronzing powder in blondes, Coco and Lulu nail polish and any of Bobbi Brown’s lip products. Love them all, especially the lip pencils and the lipglosses.
