current cosmetic favorites

Even though most days I don't wear makeup, I still have a small bag of my essentials and favorites that's easy to throw in my purse or suitcase at a moment's notice. Over the years I've accumulated quite a few different products (it's hard to resist the sales, the pretty packaging, and the sexy names that include words like smoldering and voluminous), but these are the ones that I always have on my dresser and in my cosmetic bag. I didn't realize until I sat down to write this post that the majority of the products featured here are from L'Oreal. As a consumer, I am very brand loyal - when I find a product that works for me I stick with it. So I guess L'Oreal has just been the best quality for the price I've found for the most part. That being said, I have only ever purchased my makeup from drug stores or department stores rather than specialty stores - that's just been what has been most convenient and cost effective for me. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comment section below or you can tweet me (@Fab_Factor) and I will respond toot sweet!

i'm always so nervous buying stuff at drugstores- since you can't try it on it's always a hit or miss. which is why im just like you- once i find something that works i stick with it :) these are all great products!

Oh man, I swear by that Burt's Bees lip balm in rose. It's the best stuff ever. I love that your cat always wants to model!

I have the same Burt's Bees tinted lip balm! Regular lipstick is a bit too high maintenance for me, but I do dream of one day donning bright red lipstick like no one's business.

I don`t know much about make up, that`s why I think the cat, in the last picture, is awesome! great post<3

I don't wear make-up on a daily basis. Only sometimes, when I feel that I might need some extra help I put corrector, black eyeliner and lipstick.

love the nautical bag - and thanks for sharing your favorites - I'm always on the hunt for great products :)

Burt's Bees lip balm is the best! Love the tinted ones too! Can I just say that your anchor make-up bag is truly the best. And so is your adorable cat! Happy Wednesday! :)

I always love getting a peak inside someone's make-up bag! Like you, I don't spend alot of time/money with make-up, and buy mostly all my stuff at a drugstore (though more expensive stuff is something I'd like to experiment with). Agreed, make-up is always tempting to buy with those adjectives, haha! I would still love to find the best, drugstore mascara. I haven't found one I really like so I pretty much just buy a different one everytime! One of my girlfriend's is a fan of this same one though, so maybe I'll try that one next
