Over the past year or so I've bought so many beauty products and quite honestly I don't need half of them. I don't know why I buy more when I already have things I love... always trying to find the next best thing, I guess. Here are the products that I keep coming back to over and over and if I had to pick and only use these things for the rest of my life.... that would be just fine by me. :) These products stand tried and true and always bring me back.

I think a product 10 pan is in the near future...while I love buying new products I really just want to buy products I really love and know I'll finish up. Who really needs 6 different foundations.
So, the products listed above are the items I would be happy with forever and really don't need anything other than these.
PS- my regular computer is in the shop for 3 weeks and I feel lost without it. Thankfully, I dug out my old computer from the basement. You'd laugh if you could see it. There is a crack down the center of the screen and tape is holding in the power cord. I am SO beyond thankful I at least have this... I'd be lost without blogs, twitter and youtube. Until next time....
