{Must have beauty...}

I was inspired by Muffy at Muffy Martini! Some of you may know, I work for Clinique. So, it goes without saying that I'm kinda obsessed with beauty products. BUT, I, like everyone else, have a few faves that I always go back to and can count on to make me the prettiest Piper I can be.

Purity cleanser by Philosophy is hands-down the best cleanser. Anyone can use it: dry, oily, sensitive, anyone! It removes makeup, cleanses dirt and oil, you name it. I use it every day before my regular cleanser.

The newest addition to my family of products is also the newest mascara to the Chanel family. Exceptionnel de Chanel is amazing! Trust me, it can't be beat. That's all I can say. Oh, and it is totally worth the $28 price tag.

Mascara can only look its best on a rested eye though, so I trust the ol' Clinique All About Eyes Rich for that one. It is super hydrating and gets rid of any trace of last night's party that may be lurking in the form of puffiness. It's probably my favorite Clinique product. AND, it's cheaper than the mascara, go figure!
Lipstick! I ♥ red lipstick. I have lots of allergies to lipsticks though, so this can be a tough one. Chanel's Rouge Allure lipsticks are awesome. They feel nice. And look pretty. I love the Brilliant shade.
Another new favorite - cream blushes. Not that the concept is new, but Clinique has a great new stick form that I'm learning to love. They gave us Rosy blush at a class, but the Shy color is my fave.

And finally, Perfectly Real Makeup by Clinique. I love its lightweight feel, it's perfect shade (I'm an 8), the coverage...everything! It's a great, easy makeup.

So that's my list...I'm still hunting for a great moisturizer for oily skin. Any ideas - throw 'em my way!

I love the Purity cleanser as well. Have you tried the new foaming one? I really like Murad's products, they might have a good moisturizer for oilier skin!

I use the same foundation (different color!). I love it! I also love lancome's mascaras and any lipstick from mac. They have the best colors! PS, check out Chanel's holiday collection on our page...

I love Tarte's version of a stick blush. I can use it on my cheeks, lips, wherever. It's so pretty!

Ohh, superfit is my favie. And the stick blushes are pretty amazing too. I'm currently obsessing over Egyptian liner though.

And is that chanel mascara any good? I can't seem to wean myself off of good ol' high impact :)

I like that Philosophy cleanser, too. There are a few products from Clinique that I have been wanting to try. I don't remember the names right now. I have them written down somewhere.
