Are there any products in your stash that you MUST have a backup of? Things that- if you run out of them- there will be a mini-crisis? I have a lot of products in my daily rotation, but there are a select few that I tend to have extras of. There are others that I should or did have extras of... that are no longer extras :) But here's a sampling of what's usually in my "backup" stash!
Lash Glue... It's just common sense that you can't wear false eyelashes if you don't have glue. I prefer Revlon Precision Lash Glue, and I usually find it at Wal-Mart. They seem to either have the clear or the dark-tone in stock... but not usually both at the same time. I'll use either kind, and the last time I was shopping, I picked up an extra (not realizing there was already a backup hanging around!) This stuff will definitely get used!
False Eyelashes... Months ago when I fell in love with the Red Cherry #43 false lashes- I ordered more. I got a couple 6-packs of them on Amazon for super cheap. They are just awesome when you want full, long lashes. Gorgeous!
Clear Brow Gel... When you've got some big, thick eyebrows... those things need to be tamed! I don't require a certain kind of brow gel- but this product from ELF is about as cheap as it comes- just $1 at Target. I'll start using this when I run out of the Maybelline Great Lash Clear.
More Eye Products... I think most of us have mascara backups! I actually have some different mascaras from several brands that have been sent to me for review- but these are the back-ups that I actually insist upon having in my collection. Mally Volumizing Mascara-- I experiment with many mascaras, but sometimes you just need to go back to the old faithful. This stuff is great, especially once a new tube is about 2 to 3 weeks in... then the formula becomes perfection. I also made sure to have an extra of the Mally Evercolor Automatic Waterproof Liner in Onyx. This is one of the best black liners for the waterline- it wears wonderfully! I also keep a backup of Cover Girl Clump Crusher Water Resistant... fantastic when I need the BEST staying power. Doesn't flake, and doesn't even smear when I use it on the lower lashes.
Random Beauty Stuff... I almost always have an extra TRESemme Tres Two mini. I keep one of these in my purse at all times, and it's a carry-on friendly travel size as well. So this one is just waiting to be used. Also- I have come to rely on Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs leg makeup. I can't remember the last time I wore a dress or shorts and DIDN'T have this on my legs. It makes them look flawless, tan, and it doesn't wipe off onto clothes or sheets (it'll wash off in the shower). If this stuff got discontinued, I'd be in trouble. Actually I'd be in trouble if any of this stuff was discontinued- scary thought! I also typically have an extra box of the Equate version of Olay Daily Facials Cleansing Cloths. I actually just busted into my backup. Those things take off ALL of my makeup, including eye makeup.
What's in your backup drawer? Even if you have a big collection of products that you're always using... you just have to have backups of certain things! ;)
- Just posted a new Stuff I Love video! I know, it's been too long!
- Cupcake invaded 2 of the 3 videos that I shot today.
