Elnett hairspray in extra hold~humidity defying!
Last year, I ran a series about blogger's style secrets.  I got some really great tips from this, the type of shared information that I used to get from living with my girlfriends in college and shortly there after.  Many of the comments also contained really useful information about beloved products and "go to" sources.  In the hopes of gleaning some much needed new stylish insights and re-stocking my cosmetic bag, I'm sharing my "desert island five beauty must haves" here today.  Now spill some of yours! 

Special "pink" for the cure edition La Mer lip balm, so good + so addictive!

Suave Rosemary+Mint Shampoo/Conditioner cheap and effective
Cle de Peau concealer~life changing!
Jo Malone Orange Blossom Cologne~smells heavenly, my newest addiction


  1. Great tips!! The Clea de Peau is my favorite - I use it every day - over the YSL Touche Eclat - a fabulous combo - you'll definitely be hooked!!

  2. started washing my face with cetaphil gentle cleanser, followed up with a cotton pad dab of witch hazel and a pea dollop of cetaphil moisturizer and my skin never looked better. the entire regimen is inexpensive and effective.

  3. That concealer really is life changing! And I have been using a Clarisonic brush on my face everyday, with my Cetaphil face wash, it is actually incredible. My skin is so so soft

  4. L'Occitane Immortelle cream for my very dry skin and Lancome Photogenic foundation.

  5. These are wonderful thanks. My fav which since winter is coming I now must restock on is Elizabeth Arden 8 house cream.

  6. I'm a HUGE Jo Malone fan- need to smell that one...sound delish! Also think I might have to try the concealer- always looking for a great one! My must have is my YSL Teint Majeur Foundation- LOVE!!

  7. I LOVED that series last year! Here's my list:
    Cetaphil lotion for face and body.
    Nine Ricci Premier Jour Perfume (been wearing it for ten years now!)
    MAC foundation and powder
    Clinique blush

  8. I've always wanted to try some La Mer - even the name feels luxurious. I'm a huge fan of Erase Paste for undereye circles. Can't remember brand name but you can find it at Sephora.

  9. I cannot live without my Elnett!!!
    Bare Minerals Fairly Light Matte Foundation, L'Oreal Mascara, Urban Decay Eyelid Primer, and Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion are my other must haves.
    Thanks for sharing!!

  10. My post today dealt with skin care regiment partly because I too hope to hear people's comments on what works for them. Love La Mer products, but never tried that lip balm. I see that a lot of people are raving about Clea de Peau, including you. I really should try it.

  11. Its Cle de Peau not Clea and its a great product which I discovered in my modeling days. I am also addicted to Jurliques day cream if you like really moist dewy skin its a fabulous product.

  12. love this post! I love that hairspray and I am trying to look for a good concealer. Will have to try that one! Does it clog pores? That's my problem :/


  13. I noticed Rachel Zoe seems to like Elnet....might have to make the switch now that I know you like it too!

    Jo Malone...doesn't get any better.

    And, life changing concealer? Sign me up!
    xoxo E

  14. Decleor Excellence de L'Age Regenerating Eye and Lip Cream I use it around 51 year old eyes and lips and no lines!

  15. I tried the Elnett hairspray and the smell makes me wanna gag. I like all the other choices tho!

  16. I've started using Fructis extra hold spray everyday---just a thin misting seems to hold my hair in place for most of the day. :)

  17. Pond's Cold Cream and I just started using Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair which I am LOVING - highly recommend both these products!! ;-))

  18. The Elnet smell doesn't work for me either, but Annick Goutal eau d'Hadrian is my all time favorite perfume! And Aveda lip balm stays on for hours! My husband always steals it from me, too! Not exactly a beauty product, but Dr Scholl's padded satin shoe liners are mandatory in all of my heels!

  19. hahah awesome idea and totally gonna try that Suave - why NOT? I love anything La Mer so I may have to check that out too :)


  20. Love it! Glad this is back. Who doesn't love a product with a sound recommend?


  21. Jo Malone's Orange Blossom smells like Hawaii to me -- I love it.

    I'm going to try the Suave out! On shampoos, I'm not picky, as long as it works.

  22. I am not a fan of hair spray, most smell bad and feel so sticky,so I use a smoother. My favorite is the protective luminating system (in the purple tube)by Matrix . And, I just may die if Origins ever discontinues it's rain or shine lipstick line!


Got something to share? Would love to hear it. I read every single comment:)
