5 Beauty Products I Can't Live Without

I was inspired by this post from Cup of Jo about one of her editor's 5 products she couldn't live without. I love hearing about other peoples favorite things and recommendations so I thought I would show you mine. I want to do more lists in the future, like 5 kids products I can't live without, 5 nail colors, 5 cooking products etc.

Here are my 5 beauty products I can't live without:

Kiehls ultra facial moisturizing cream-My skin is super sensitive and when I try new things, it freaks out but this Kiehls lotion is tried and true and my ultimate love. I ran out of it for over a month and for the life of me I could not get to a Nordstrom to get a new one #RIPPROVONORDSTROM I was using my old clean and clear lotion and when I finally reunited with this dream cream I cannot tell you the difference it has made! My face is bouncier (it's a thing) and fresher and clearer and happier. The only con is it doesn't have any anti aging properties which I feel like I need to start.

The Wet Brush-K so blondes have more fun, but also blondes have a lot harder time combing through wet hair because damage and bleach and stuff...lovely. I don't know what I did before the wet brush. I lost it one time and instead of trying to brush my hair without it, I just didn't leave the house for like four days. Also it is so cheap. LIFE CHANGING PEOPLE!! RUN TO TARGET AND GET ONE!

K I'm cheating and putting my 4 favorite make up products as one item! So I love make up but am definitely not an expert. Have you guys seen some of those make up videos on youtube of like contouring and stuff? That is like voodoo magic and makes me feel like I have no idea what I'm doing. I still love to try new products though, I could spend hours in Sephora, so here are my fav make up products. Benefit Boi-ng Concealer-the tag line for this is literally 'industrial strength concealer'  and with the amount of sleep I DON'T get my bags have bags under my eyes, I feel like this stuff brightens me up so much. Benefit Gimme Brow-I have tried SO MANY eyebrow pencils, dipbrows etc. because my eyebrows are invisible without being filled in and this is my favorite by far. It gives texture, thickness and such a good color for blondes. I feel like it looks more natural than a pencil and doesn't take me nearly as long. Laura Mercier Bronzer-I have been on the hunt for a bronzer that wasn't glittery and sparkly forever but still had a natural color and I finally found it as a sample in one of those gift bag things and have been hooked. This one is matte, the formula goes on so smoothly and lasts forever. I use the color Dune.  And finally Clinique Chubby Sticks-These are my favorite products to wear on my lips. They don't dry my lips out like nearly every other lipstick I own, are so easy to apply and I love all the colors (my favorites are Woppin' Watermelon and Heaping Hazelnut) I always have one on me.

Moroccan Oil and Moroccan Oil Hairspray. I LOVE the smell of this stuff, like I use it as room freshener as well. The light oil is my favorite because I have fine hair and I just rub it in the ends and it smooths and hydrates and I get nice whiffs of it all day and I also love the hairspray because the formula is great but mostly for the smell.

Marcelle Eye Makeup Remover. I have been using this for ten years and I think you either love it or hate it. It is my favorite, but my sister hates the gel formula. It take everything off and is cooling on my eyes and leaves absolutely no residue, which I feel like most other makeup removers do.

My honorable mentions are
Nars Blush in Orgasm (such a pretty color on every skin tone).
MAC brushes, have had mine for 10 years and still look and feel brand new.
Pureology Shampoo and Conditioner (the purple ones) They smell sooo good and the conditioner is tingly and makes me feel fancy.
Philosophy body washes. They have the most amazing smells and are sudsy leave my skin so moisturized. I love giving these as gifts.
Revlon Colorstay Foundation-Been using this since high school, my very favorite drugstore make up product.

Ok there it is. I know a lot of that is pricier but most of these products last me FOREVER and I feel like since I only have to buy them like once a year sometimes you need to TREAT YO SELF!

What are your favorite beauty buys? Seriously I love hearing about this stuff!
