I thought this might be a fun idea and a way for us to share our favorite products. I searched our forum and did not find one so here it is.
So what beauty products do you l:heart:ve and swear by....

For me
La Mer for skin - moisture and cleanser
DiorShow Mascara
Chanel Glossimers in every color I can get my hands on
Ojon for my crazy hair
There are tons of others that come and go but these are my mainstays. How about yours?:woohoo:

Love the thread! Although I am slightly resistant to calling myself a Minkette for some reason, maybe I think it sounds too much like Mouseketeer - LOL! But as a big RM fan and beauty junkie I use:

Amore Pacific - variety of products, esp the stabilizing serum. I love and swear by Amore Pacific!
La Mer and Dermadoctor KP Duty Moisturizer - switch off depending on mood. Even though KP Duty costs like 1/15th as much I think it works just as well in a different way!
Bobbi Brown luminizing foundation
Bobbi Brown, Lorac and Chanel Hydrabase lipstick - am obsessed with lipstick
Vincent Longo lip gloss
Vincent Longo Mascara
no eye makeup because I am hopeless at applying it and always look like a hooker :biggrin:
and I use Ojon too - love it!

It is pricey but boy does it work wonders on my skin. I got my first jar in my early 20's and was almost afraid to use it due to the cost. Skip ahead a few years (I won't tell how many) and I am still just as hooked and I swear it has made my eyes look so much better.
I love Bare Escentuals also, they have beautiful eye colors.

Minkette! Hee hee hee! Love that...

Skin:
Shu Uemura cleansing oil
Kiehl's moisturizer with SPF

Makeup:
Bare Minerals foundation
Urban Decay primer potion (looooooooove this stuff)
Maybelline mascara
Eyeshadow and lipcolor from Tarte We Wish You Wealth palette

I have super dry hair and skin, so I use Neutrogena body oil on both. I never wear blush because I can't figure out how to put it on without looking like a hooker for clowns or like I got shot with Homer Simpson's makeup gun.

Love this! I use frequently and love:

Fekkai Glossing Cream for hair, Lush Ultra Bland for a gentle cleanser for the face, and La Mer creams for the undereye and problem flaky areas (I have allergies, and it helps me get over the redness). I always use MAC makeup when I use color cosmetics, and I only use Dove soap (I have dry skin).

Great Thread!! As a RM junkie, I am also a cosmetic addict. Some of my favorites are:
Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and the loose powder is the best. No color and superfine texture
Nars blush, lipstick and lipgloss especially the color orgasm which is a pink/peach with some shimmer
Makeup Forever eye pencils-These have been my salvation as my deep set watery eyes destroy any eyeliner. These are truly waterproof and super long lasting
And just in case you think I only buy high end I love the new Cover Girl mascara in the orange tube with the seperate brush
Oh and my super beauty tip is with watery eyes-Regular mascara on top but waterproof undereye. Waterproof daily is too much for those delicate lashes!
