My Favorite Five
Cottage and Vine is hosting a link party called Five Favorites
The question is - If you are going away for the weekend and can only take five products, in your cosmetic bag, what would they be.
Ok - so I'm on this serious philosophy kick right now. I tend to get hooked on one product line at a time. I wait months and then finally get up the courage to go to Sephora. The store overwhelms me and I get a serious case of anxiety if I stay there too long.
I purchased a starter kit from Sephora and my skin has never looked better. So, I would definitely bring Philosophy's Purity Cleanser and their new Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Moisturize, and the Amazing Grace Perfume. In the starter kit I used their Hope in a Jar moisturizer, which wasn't bad, and their Hope in a Jar SPF 20 moisturizer - WHICH I HATE! It's all greasy and oily. I hear they've reformulated the moisturizer with SPF, but it has scarred me for life so I won't be trying it. The Miracle Worker moisturize is AMAZING - I love the way it feels on my skin. I have to agree with Rene of Cottage and Vine - Great Lash Mascara is my go to mascara also. I learned a long time ago that you don't have to put eye shadow on, just mascara to look "done". And finally, I would bring Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer. It's lightweight and evens out my skin tone.
