The One & Only Tag!!

Angelica over at One Little Vice created this tag using inspiration from "travel make-up bag" posts. If you could only have one of every beauty product what products would you end up with? The point of this tag is to get an insight into your absolute beauty staples.  There can be no wavering, only one product from each category can be chosen and the result should be a capsule collection that you could live with if you had to.

The Question: If you could only have one _________ what would it be? And, in a few words, why?


Benefit's The Porefessional Primer - This primer leaves my pores looking smaller and my skin feeling smooth and even. My foundation also stays on longer when I use this compared to when I don't.

Base Product

Covergirl Clean Oil Control Foundation - This has been my go to foundation for years. It gives me medium coverage, that is buildable when needed, and I find myself becoming less oily, compared to when I use other products.


Garnier Anti-Dark Circle Roller & Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - I like to use different concealers for beneath my eyes and on blemishes. The Garnier Roller gives me light coverage, and the caffeine helps with puffiness and bags. The Maybelline is a new found love for me. It covers very well, is buildable, and easy to blend.


Physician's Formula Cover Tox Ten 50 - I heard about this powder from GlamLifeGuru and hoped it would live up to her claims. I get great coverage out of this powder, and it absorbs oil like crazy! I don't really need it for the wrinkle reducing properties but it is never to early to start fighting wrinkles.


Benefit's Highbeam - I like this highlighter because it is easy to work with and gives me a natural glow. This highlighter can make you look like you are glowing from within. I have a sample size of this product and can see it lasting a really long time.

Makeup Brush (single)

Real Techniques Multi Task Brush - This brush is good for powder, blush, or bronzer application. I have even used it for powder highlighters as well. My main use for this brush is to apply my blush.

Eyebrow Product

Caryl Baker Visage Divaderme Brow Extender - I never cared about filling in my brows until I found this product. It is seriously the easiest thing to use. It is fibers made out of natural ingredients that you apply using a doe foot applicator. You just swipe it on and run a brush through your brows, and voila! Done!

Eyeshadow (single)

MAC Charcoal Brown - This eyeshadow is very multi purpose for me. I can use it as an all over wash of colour on the lid, I can use it in the crease, I can use it to fill in my brows, I can use it as a contour, etc.


Elf Studio Blush in Tickled Pink - Although this blush has a lot of fallout, I think the quality is very good, especially for its price. Tickled Pink gives a nice flush to the cheeks, that starts sheer, and builds without making you look like a clown. I've almost hit pan and will be buying a backup next time I am in the States.


I don't use bronzer so I don't have one I would choose to use on a daily basis.


Cailyn Cream Liner in Iron - Ever since getting this in my June Ipsy Bag I have been using it non-stop. It goes on smoothly, and is opaque in one layer. The brush built in the lid makes it perfect for on the go. I love this eyeliner because the charcoal grey colour is less harsh then black liner, but a little more defining than brown.


Revlon Lash Potion - I received this from Revlon to test and review, and it has become my go-to mascara. There is no clumping, only a long, full, lush fan of lashes. I only need one coat for perfect lashes all day.

Lip Balm

Nivea Essential - This lip balm is unscented, has a thick formula, and leaves my lips feeling moisturized. It is essentially everything a lip balm is supposed to be in my book. It is good for use during the day and if you put it on thicker at night you will wake up with perfectly unchapped lips.

Lipstick, Gloss, or Stain

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey - This lip stain is the my lips but better colour. It is extremely moisturizing and long lasting. The shape of the product makes application easy and its perfect for on the go. I hoping to pick up a few more colours in the future. Maybe something a bit brighter then this neutral colour.

Lip Liner

Starlooks Lip Liner in Tipsy - I am not normally one for lip liner, but every since getting this in my June Ipsy bag I have been converted. The formula of this lip liner is extremely creamy, smooth, and pigmented. It kind of reminds me more of a lipstick then a lip liner. I like to fill in my lips with this liner and then put a clear gloss over top.

Nail Polish

My go to nail polish will always be any brand and any shade of purple. I think that it looks good with my skin tone and it goes with everything.
