FFF: Make-up

Earlier in the month, Kelly wrote a post about her make-up upgrade, and this has inspired today's Friday Fave Five. What are my five favorite make-up products?

1. Mac Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup - There was a time when I did not want to embrace my fair skin and would therefore wear lipstick that was way too red or brown. I've since discovered that pink is often the way to go, and after hours of trying lipsticks on, I found this at Mac. This is the perfect light pink lipstick, and its creamy consistency is easy to apply and feels so nice.

2. NARS Bronzing Powder - This looks dark, but a light application really makes it work with any skin tone, and it stays on all day. And lasts forever! My sisters bought this as a Christmas gift for me in 2008, and it's still going strong.

3. Maybelline Define-a-Lash Mascara - This is one of those convenience store make-up items that stands a chance against more expensive mascaras. It does a great job lengthening my lashes and stays on all day. Plus, mascara is supposed to be tossed every couple of months, so it's one I don't like spending too much money on. (This is only about $7.)

4. Urban Decay eyeshadow in Twice Baked - If there is any make-up item that I most struggle with, it's eye shadow. I love eye shadow, and yet it (at least all that I've tried) does not love me. It just won't stay on! I've tried primers and different types of shadows, and it's always the same problem. Urban Decay has been pretty good to me, and I like this deep shimmery brown.

5. Stila Convertible Color in Petunia - Actually, I don't have this, but all of my sisters do, and I borrow it from them whenever they're around, so it's making the post. (I think I need to break down and buy my own!) This compact has a creamy color that can be used on lips or cheeks, and it creates an instant "I'm awake now" glow.

Any make-up items that have been especially good to you? Let me know!


  1. I'm actually using Define-a-lash volume mascara. I gave it shot because I know how much you like Define-a-lash. I really like it -better than the regular Define-a-lash.

  2. i LOVE nars bronzing powder - but i just dropped my compact and it broke all over the floor!! :( i'm going to try to salvage it. and i'm inspired to do my own favorite makeup blog :)
