Lipstick Queen Jean QueenMarc Jacobs HoneyIllamasqua Pink Raindrops
my black tube Wet n Wild lipstick that I'm WAY too lazy to go look up the name of (it's a coralish pink), the Hello sample I got last month from BB and the Sally Hansen insta-dry pink blink 205 (my signature color this year) My holographic gold polish almost won out but really- I wear the pink all the time so it should win.

That's a hard one, G.!!! LOL But here are my choices (I'm very classic):Lipstick Queen MedievalPhilosophy Amazing GraceOPI Bubble Bath
Lol! I know, right? That's why I didn't answer myself (my blog, my rules! LOL!!). And yes, Bubble Bath is a great, classic choice! Can't go wrong with that one. Now you're making me want to bust out my WnW Sugar Coat (a reader posted about that being a dupe for Bubble Bath years ago here on the blog, so I never ended up buying the real thing...close enough?). ;)
I had WnW Sugar Coat and it's a pretty close dupe. My only reason I preferred Bubble Bath is that Sugar Coat got streaky on me the longer I owned it. The formula, I guess, started drying a little, the more I used it. I still own Bubble Bath, consistently use it, and the formula is still the same. To me, that's a good splurge!
Milani Teddy BareEstee Lauder SpellboundZoya Leah

Hmmmmm....Lipstick Clinique Butter Shine 462 Apri-CutiePerfume Chanel Coco MademoiselleOrly Space Cadet or Essie Braziliant.I know I'm a weirdo, just can't keep going back to these two babies no matter how hard I try :)
Space Cadet is probably my fave Orly of all time. I remember being so frustrated a few years ago when I reviewed it, because I just couldn't capture its full beauty in pics!
Exactly!!! Let's just hope they'll never discontinue it LOL :)

Such a fun question!Wet n' Wild Cashmere (the $1 line...I just love it);Sunflowers. Really. It changes to something magical with my body chemistry; Wet n' Wild Limited edition Mega Rocks in Rising Star. It's magical.
Omg Sunflowers!! I've been on a seeeerious 80s/90s perfume kick the last few months (been wearing Anais Anais, Jessica McClintock and Calyx non stop) and I was just thinking about how I would like to revisit Sunflowers! :)
I love Sunflowers. It reminds me of when I was pregnant with my son because I wore it all the time the year before he was born.
Ooh, I love Anais Anais!
Oh please get it again! You'll love it!!

God, that's tough. I may go fetal. Since it's still fall for most of the rest of the year, I'd pick Clinique Black Honey, but if it were some other time of the year I'd go with Lipstick Queen's Frog Prince (one swipe is pretty and sheer, but it really builds up to a deeper, brighter stain if you keep applying)Orly Ingenue (also buildable) Chanel No. 5
