Show Us Your Life: Favorite Beauty Products

I have not written a Show Us Your Life post in some time, but this is a topic I LOVE to discuss. I think I have tried every beauty least once. Here a few of my favorites:

1. The Cleanser: I have tried too many facial cleansers from all price ranges and I always...ALWAYS...come back to this. It is simply the best.

2. Wrinkle Control: So I am in my 30's....and the wrinkles become more obvious everyday! I don't want to start Botox just yet, so these are a few of my favorite wrinkle fighters of all time.

Seriously, I have tried so many eye creams from Olay to Obagi and the Eye Concentrate by La Mer beats them all. Nothing else can even compare. I actually see a difference in my skin if I forget to use this for one night. It is a miracle product......expensive, but a little bit goes a long jar will easily last 6 months.

      If you are over 30, then you need to use Retin-A every night. This prescription-only cream can actually prevent wrinkles!

3. The Eyes: I use too much eye make-up, but I just love it!

I line my upper eyelids with Lancome liquid artliner. It is very mistake proof.

I use Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof eyeliner for the lower lids. I have to use waterproof eyeliner & mascara for the lower lashes because I am an emotional wreck.
I use the non-waterproof version of Hypnose Drama for my upper lashes.

Dior 5 Couleurs is the BEST eyeshadow on the market. There is no reason to try anything else.

Even though, I have tried several different under eye concealers, I have never been able to find a product that completely satisfies me. If anyone has any concealer suggestions, then PLEASE post a comment with your advice.

4: The Face: I have used Studio Fix by MAC for several years and I love the product. However, as I am starting to age, I notice that this make-up will thicken over my lines and almost make them more noticeable. Today, I tried Bare Escentuals READY foundation for the first time. I do like this foundation because it feels so light, but I almost wish I had tried the original Bare Escentual foundation first. Please, let me know if you have tried Bare Escentuals or if you have advice for best make-up for the aging face.

These are just a few of my favorite products. I will stop now, because I could on for days about beauty products & skincare.


  1. i'm dying to try those dior shadows! i love my cle de peau concealer... even kim k uses it!

  2. A little OT, but when one of my sisters was a nurse, she swore by hemp (yep, marijuana) based hand lotion as an antidote to the constant disinfecting. She said it worked like an absolute charm.

  3. Hi Kristi,
