Lipstick -Clinique - Almost Lipstick - Black Honey

I have been using this since my junior year of high school. I am fickle when it comes to lipsticks, but this has been a staple in my purse for, well, 13 years now. On me, it looks extremely natural - kind of like my lips only better. I don't find it drying at all - in fact, in a pinch, I'll use it if I've somehow forgotten my chapstick (actually, I've used it as a blush on more than one occasion too). My only issue is that I do wish that it lasted a little longer.
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Aquaphor Healing Ointment

I'm pretty sure Aquaphor can do anything. It has saved my nose, my lips, elbows, knees, feet - everything. I like that it does not have a smell, and that it keeps whatever I have applied it to moisturized for a long time - everything else I've tried either has an overpowering scent or requires constant reapplication. I have a mini tube in my purse, a tub on my nightstand, and a big tube at work. Now if only I could find a way for it to help me figure out my taxes . . .
Moisturizers -Purpose - Purpose Intensive Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15

I don't know why or how, but my skin loves this moisturizer. I don't particularly like spending a lot of money on moisturizers, particularly after reading articles about how they are all the same, but I haven't had much luck with drugstore brands...until this. It sinks in quickly, makes my skin feel very soft and hydrated, and acts as a great base for my mineral foundation. My only issue, and the only reason why I did not give it a 5, is the smell. I'm not sure how to describe it. But the smell does not linger, and the smell does not outweigh how much I like what this does to my skin!
