The Lipstick League - week of 9.15.14

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

Quick: name three makeup products that you’ve repurchased multiple times. 

G's answer: Just THREE? Oh gosh, the pressure! OK, off the top of my head:

1) Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Matte Lipstick in #104.
(My go-to "I don't even have to think about it I just know it always looks good on me" shade.)

2) Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Spot Concealer + Treatment in Fair/Light.
I don't think I've ever mentioned this here on the blog and I don't know why?!? Anyway, I use this product as under-eye concealer as well as on other parts of my face, but I especially love it under my eyes. The coverage is so impressive for a drugstore concealer and it never creases or pools up in my fine lines, it never looks dry or cakey and it lasts all day even on my oily skin. I've probably repurchased this concealer over a dozen times since it debuted at the beginning of 2013.

3) NYC Big Bold Mascara in Black.
Not Big Bold Curl and not Big Bold Volume. I'm talking about the original Big Bold in the pink tube. Love the stuff because it gives me excellent volume and lift, it never smudges or flakes and it removes easily with just my regular facial cleanser. I love so many drugstore mascaras, but this is definitely one of my very favorites and it's one I keep repurchasing again and again (I basically get one every time Rite Aid or CVS runs a good sale, which is about once a month or so).

  1. Great picks! But yeah, just getting to select three products is cruel, haha.

  2. For me it would be Almay Get Up and Grow mascara, Laura Mercier eye corrector and Orly top coat (although i've switched since to something different)

  3. oops I meant Seche Vite top coat

  4. That's a hard question! Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Cafe, Wet N Wild Brown Pencil in Dark Brown, and L.A. Girl Pro Concealer in Fawn.

  5. L'oreal Voluminous mascara, Weleda Everon lip balm, and Wet n Wild Coverall foundation!

  6. Revlon Brow Fantasy in Brunette, Black Opal invisible oil blocking powder (pressed), and Maybelline dark circle eraser in Neutralizer.

  7. That's tough. Probably NYC's top coat nail polish in Grand Central Station and CoverGirl's 3-in-1 foundation in Buff Beige. Those are two I definitely love. I also like one of the essence concealer sticks, in nude, I think. It works well for me, but I want to check out the Maybelline you mentioned.

  8. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Radiant, Jordana Extreme Volume Mascara and Revlon ColorStay foundation.

  9. Covergirl Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara, Coty Airspun Loose Powder Translucent Extra Coverage and AVON Butterscotch Lip Balm.

  10. ELF Studio High Definition powder, Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation and Stila Convertible Color blush.
