I go through a lot of different beauty products, but there are only a few items that I buy repeatedly. Here's a look at the 15 things I've consistently used up and bought again.

1. Tarte 'Flush' Cheek Stain. I've owned multiple iterations of this product, but it's this sheer berry shade that I keep coming back to. Most mornings, I add a touch to my cheeks and then my lips to match (it tastes terrible since it's not really meant to be applied there, but the color is too good not to).

2. M.A.C 'Snob' Lipstick. Since I wear this lipstick at least several times a week, it's no surprise that I've had to re-buy this shade over the years (not to mention, I always have a few on hand for those times I misplace one around the house). It's a mod, light pink that makes the rest of my face look more awake.

3. Clinique 'Happy' Body Wash. I wore this perfume in high school and while I no longer wear the fragrance, the body wash puts me in a good mood every time I shower. 

4. Carnal Flower Perfume. This has been my signature scent for several years now and I love that so many people associate me with this beautiful tuberose fragrance.

5. Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream. I discovered Caudalie back in December and I've been hooked ever since. I use this lotion every morning and night since it's rich, decadent, and sinks into my skin immediately.

6. Almay Liquid Liner. I love the super thin applicator and that the black liner is so deeply pigmented, but won't budge until I wash my face at night.

7. Chantecaille Foundation. I typically rotate between three different foundations/tinted moisturizers, but this is the one I truly miss when it runs out. It makes my skin look dewy and the lightweight coverage looks natural but flawless.

8. beautyblender Sponge. In all fairness, I've only repurchased this sponge twice since it can hold up for a long time, but it's a game changer when it comes to helping your makeup look blended and seamless. I use it in between everything I apply (foundation, liquid bronzer, blush and then highlighter) so that once I'm done, it all sort of works together.

9. Bare Minerals Concealer. After Alina introduced me to this concealer, I bought two immediately (one for my purse and one that I keep in my bathroom). On days when I don't want full coverage, I use only this under my eyes, around my nose, and on blemishes, and it transforms the look of my skin. 

10. Ardell Individual Lashes. I get panicky if I don't have a set of these individual lashes on hand. I don't use them all the time, but when I add three or four to each eye, it makes it look like my eyelashes are mysteriously longer and lusher (which isn't the same as having it simply look like I'm wearing falsies). 

11. Tan Towels. I've been loyal to Tan Towels for years since they're compact, have very little smell, create an even, real-looking tan, and go on easily. I buy them in bulk and usually apply them once a week.

12. Essie 'Wicked' Nail Polish. Everyone should have a signature nail polish shade and mine is probably 'Wicked.' It goes on looking almost black, but is more of a deep, deep brown that makes my fingers and toes look instantly polished (no pun intended) and sophisticated. I used to wear it only in colder months, but think nothing looks cooler than a vampy mani/pedi in the summer when juxtaposed with crisp white clothing.

13. Kevyn Aucoin Mascara. Even though I've since found a new favorite dramatic mascara, this will always be my go-to everyday choice. Beyond the fact that it makes my lashes look naturally longer, darker, and fuller, it washes off in little tubes without the need for additional eye makeup remover.

14. Kevyn Aucoin Brow Pencil. This brow pencil is the one I continually restock since it glides on easily with even the slightest touch and the applicator never needs to be sharpened. While I wish there was a wider shade selection, the 'brunette' works well enough to still be considered my all-time favorite brow pencil.

15. philosophy Brightening Peel Pads. These brightening peel pads are great since they only require a few minutes and deliver pretty serious results. I notice a dramatic difference in my skin in terms of tightness and smaller pores, which is why I've been using these weekly for quite some time.
