Beauty products that last

Do you ever get frustrated when you spend a lot of money on beauty products and they don't last very long?

Here are some of my favs that do last....

Urban Decay Primer Potion

I picked up this tube over a year and a half ago! And I use it! A little goes a long way and it is hands down my favorite product ever! I'm only just now about to run out and I lucked out by cashing in my 500 point reward the other day and got a free refill :-D

Benefit's Erase Paste

It takes me about a year to go through this little jar. I use a concealer brush to dab it under my eyes to cover up those unsitely undereye circles. 

Suave's Moroccan Oil *purchased at Target*

I use this Moroccan Oil every time I blow dry my hair and again a little goes a long way. I've had this bottle for a few months and still have a majority of the bottle left. Bonus points that it's cheap and can be found at Target.

Sephora Bronzer Sun Disk *currently sold out so unable to link*

I've been wearing Sephora's bronzer for a while so when the sale associate suggested I go bigger and get the sun disk for only a couple dollars more I of course went for it. She couldn't have been more right. This has lasted me a lot longer than the regular sized compact. I've had this disk since February!

NARS Albatross

I use this as a highlighter, and this has lasted since December. I don't use this every day, but a few times a week. Great lasting power! I haven't even hit the pan yet, which surprises me considering I hit the pan so quickly with NARS Orgasm.

Naked Palettes

I got the original Naked Palette in January of 2011, the Naked 2 palette for Christmas 2011, and the Naked Basics palette in December 2012. The only shade I've hit the pan on so far is Sidecar in the original palette. And I use colors from at least one of these palettes every day. Love that these shades are great for day and/or night.

Benefit Eye Bright

I've had this pencil for almost 2 years, but to be fair I use it only in the inner corners of my eyes to brighten them up during the week since I'm usually tired. 

Maybelline BB Cream *purchased at Target*

I picked up this BB cream for summer days out in the sun. I wanted something that would provide me coverage without feeling heavy or "looking like makeup". Another bonus is that it contains SPF 30 in it so I love using it for beach or pool days. 

What are some of your fav products that have lasted much longer than you thought?


  1. i love all the benefit products! they all seem to last me a long time!! i want to try that sephora sun disc! too bad it's sold out!

  2. I get so frustrated. I feel like I just waste money down the drain when products don't last. I love NARS Albatross. I feel like it's lasted forever so far!

  3. Love this! I always love makeup recommendations! Going to have to try the erase paste for my unsightly under eyes! Thanks for sharing, love!

  4. Oh, what's the highlighter like? I might need to pick one up!

  5. Love this, I hate it when I buy a product and a month later it's all used up!I really want to try the erase paste but don't think they have a shade that matches me!

  6. I second the Urban Decay primer and the Sephora sun disk. My MAC pressed powder compact lasts me forever.
