thursday 13: 13 things in my make-up bag

I guess I enjoy lists and countdowns. I discovered a new weekly meme called Thursdays Thirteen and I’m going to give it a try. You pick your own topic for the list. I got the new Sephora catalog today, which lead to my theme. And I may be exposing myself as a brand snob when it comes to health and beauty products. I am, that is the truth. I am a brand snob. It is true that you get what you pay for, especially when it comes to tweezers. There, it feels good to admit that in a public forum. I’m also something of a brand loyalist. When you find something that works, stick with it. And if a company proves themselves to you, be dedicated right back. And don’t buy into the hype just because something is on America’s Next Top Model and you’re in the mood to try something new (see # 12). If you find the Benefit Bad Lash works the best and you have some extra pennies in the allowance, and then by all means, spend those pennies. As Heather Locklear says, “you’re worth it.”

13 Things in My Make-up Bag

1. Bare Escentuals bareMinerals foundation in Fairly Light
2. Shu Uemura eye lasher curler
3. MAC eye shadow quad in Malt, Haux, Ricepaper (barely hanging on) and Mythology
4. Sephora eye pencil in #211
5. Rimmel eye pencil in Pure White
6. Pink Tweezerman tweezers
7. Lovely by SJP perfume purse wand
8. Bare Escentuals eye shadow in Pure Spice
9. A kid’s toothbrush I use for my brows
10. Aveda Smoothing Fluid (sample size)
11. Philosophy Kiss Me lip balm
12. Cover Girl Volume Exact mascara in Very Black (I will probably not buy again. It tends to flake. And with my allergies/sensitive eyes that sucks.)
13. Bare Escentuals Feather Light make-up brush

I have well over 13 things in my make-up bag. I won't tell you how many over 13...because that would be embarrassing.

I love Lovely by SJP, too!!! I think all Cover Girl mascara flakes. I don't like it. Love their other products, foundations, shadows and especially the eyeliners, but I think Loreal makes the best mascaras!!!

Fun list! Happy TT- Jessica The Rock Chick
