I still love a 'true' red nail polish. I've done lasting-power / chip- resistance tests with a variety of nail enamel in all price ranges, and I still put Revlon Nail Enamel in my top three. Revlon Red is the perfect red. $5
Rosebud Salve - lips, nail cuticles, rough elbows, bushy eyebrows, diaper rash - it's truly a multi-purpose balm. $6
Solar Oil - Introduced in 1981, this cuticle oil is still a bedside companion and nightly ritual for my nails.
My Mason Pearson hairbrush. Actually, it's one my daughter left in my bathroom on one of her trips home from college. That was ten years ago, so I now claim it as officially mine. It may be hard to image paying $100 for a hairbrush, but it will last forever and nothing polishes and shines hair like quality boar bristles.
Blush, lipstick, mascara - the three essential beauty products every woman should own. This mascara consistently wins top-honors year-after-year. It sounds unbelievable, but supposedly a tube is sold every two-seconds. With or without using my lash primer - I love this product. $5
These last two take me back to high school, when my beauty products were purchased at the drugstore.
Coty Airspun Face Powder - it's been making movie stars’ complexions flawless since 1935. I think I only owned one box of the powder before Cover Girl caught my fancy. $8
Yardley of London English Lavender Soap - I haven't purchased a bar in years, but it has such a wonderful scent. Maybe I need to make a purchase. $3
These all make me smile.
