1. YSL Glossy Balm.  I purchased it in 3 shades.  The packaging is lovely too.

2. Kat Von D. liquid liner.  I think this might get discontinued.  I can draw the best wings with this applicator

3. Buxom lipgloss in any color.  I like the way it feels on, and it stays on for a long time.

4. Chloe perfume.  This has become my favorite fragrance.  I get compliments all the time using it.

5. UD's Naked palette.  I didn't think I'd love this because of the "boring" colors, but I use it almost daily now.

6. The Balm Mary Lou highlighter.  I use this almost every day to contour my face.

7. UD's deslick powder.  This cuts the shine without depositing color.

8. Dior face self-tanner.  It's a gradual self-tanner that blends well.

9. Kate Somerville Exfolikate.  I use this once in a blue moon to keep my skin healthy.  Like the scent too.

10. UD's brow color in blonde.  This is perfect for coloring in my brows without looking too dark or unnatural.

@ TMarie: Re: 1. L'oreal Studio Secrets Foundation Primer.

I am currently using this as my primer, and I am not quite happy with it. I do have very oily skin with a few dry patches. Do you mind if I ask ... What is your skin type?
