    So ladies, which product could you NOT live without when it comes to makeup?

    Lipstick- preferably red or bright pink and since I'm old school a little lipliner is a must!

    Which product do you NEVER use?


    Mascara- my eyes are too sensitive

    Can't live without: Lipstick! I feel naked without it.

    Never use: Eyeliner. I might put it on for a photo or if I'm wearing a costume, but in real life I never wear it.

    Oooooh, now that's a hard question... I love my make-up and have done since I was 11... I'm pretty sure I'd put it on before leaving a burning building ;p

    What couldn't I live without? Probably my foundation because I hate my freckles and I'm think it's the built in SPF that's kept me relatively wrinkle-free.

    I never use concealer - IMO it just seems to draw attention to whatever it is I am trying to hide! Completely defeats the object.

    Some type of tastey lip moisturizer is my only everyday regular wear die without product. I'm not even picky about the type as long as it tastes good and it works.

    I don't wear any other type of make-up unless it's a special occasion, photo, etc. I never ever wear any type of foundation products due to the fact that it all makes me feel like I have a dirty face. I also never wear lipstick. When I do wear something it's lancome mascara or liquid liner.

    I'm kind of wash and go.

    Loathe makeup. Clogs my pores. As it is I absolutely MUST wash my face twice daily to feel able to 'breathe'.
    Only in 'old age' do I even use skin lotion on other parts of me.

    Okay, after I tweeze a hair I use isopropyl alcohol to soothe the skin, much like an 'aftershave'...

    Lip gloss/lipstick for sure! Even when I wear no other makeup, I have the lips taken care of with something shiny. :wink:

    As to what I never use? Blush. Just seems one step too many.

    I never, hardly ever wear make up. It burns my skin but on very rare occasions I'll use some eye pencil on the bottom of the eyes and even more rarely, lip stick. Mauve or berry colors to match my natural lip colors.

    I could not live without...foundation. I wear L'Oreal True Blend Natural 2 and 3(depends on seasons). Its natural looking and blends well. Not cakey feeling..My face does not get tanned or color well, so yeah..I do love eyeshadow as well. Smokey, not smudgy. ;-) A little Mascara and minimal eyeliner

    I could live without...blush. It usually looks unnatural. I also usually do not wear lipstick. My lips have a natural dark color.

    Mascara can't be done without. I feel like my face does alright on it's own but a little mascara draws attention to my eyes instead of my skin if it's not looking so hot that day.

    I could totally do without lipstick. I think it's fun, but I often go without it and just use a little lip balm or olive oil for some sheen. My lips are full and naturally very red, so it's definitely not a must for me.

    I haven't worn any sort of makeup since junior high. About the only thing I do use is chapstick or lip balm when it's winter to stave off dry and cracked lips..

    I use lip balm almost daily.

    Other than that (and does lip balm even count as make up?), I don't use make up at all. I don't even own any. I've worn make up only 3 times in my entire life, and it's always been when someone else has taken it into their head to experiment on me.

    for me a woman that uses too much make up is hiding something or is something wrong with her.

    On a desert island I would cage match/battle to the death over: Lip balm or gloss, Alba Daily Shade spf 16, lash and brow comb, tweezers, and brow pencil/eye liner.

    Would engage in a slap fight over: Kajal liner.

    Use for kindling: everything else - blush, foundation, mascara, concealer, translucent powders, highlights, shadows, lipstick, glittery stuff.


    I disagree. Nothing more to read into the use of makeup beyond - "yay! I can accentuate ___", "de-emphasize___" or "Ooooo, makeup!"

    I can live without foundation; they all seem so heavy and irritating.

    That's pretty harsh. I use make up to express my mood, my creativity and my artistic talent.
