Backed Up Beauty Bits


There are those products in your life where you just don't want to go a day without them. The holy grails, the good'uns that need to be in stock at all times. There is a drawer in my beauty collection where all my favorite products have a few extras on deck. Just in case.

I rarely keep back ups of makeup products since there are just so many other products to test out and experiment with, but I can't help but always have the Stila One Step Correct. Although I've been getting better at using other primers, this one is still by far my favorite one. I've probably used five or six different containers of this so far and always have at least one extra.

There's also a new Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara in my back up drawer since mascara is such an important part to my makeup routine. I use a ton of different mascaras at one time, but I like to have a trusted one on hand just in case.

Skincare is the big one for backed up products. I'm still madly in love with my current skincare routine so having extras of the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask, the Body Shop's Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish, and the Vitamin E Hydrating Toner is a given. The Body Shop is always having a buy three get three free sort of sale going on, so it makes sense to do a large stock up every once in a while to get the best deal.

Since I can never be too sure if I'm close to running out of makeup wipes, I always keep one package on hand. I really love the Equate ones since they're so affordable and just the right amount of wetness. 

A couple of months ago I placed a number of different small Sephora orders in order to use my VIB points for travel sizes of my beloved Living Proof 5-in-1 Styling Treatment. I ultimately saved about $30 placing a bunch of different orders rather than one big one since you can only use your VIB points on different samples in one order, you can't get the same one multiple times. I felt like a genius and now I have four little tubes of holy grail hair.

I try to keep my back up drawer within reason and not be too presumptuous that I'll keep using a product I currently love. These products are definite favorites that I can't get enough of.

What products do you always have backups for?

xoxo Kayla
