What's The One Beauty Product You Won't Leave Home Without?

01/17/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

While Halle and Kelly may feel comfortable leaving their homes with totally bare faces, most of us aren’t quite brave enough. For some women, it’s under-eye concealor while for others, they depend on their lip gloss — but most of us have one beauty product that we wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without. We know Nicole Richie really loves her Chanel Automatic Liquid Eyeliner in Noir, but tell us: What is your can’t-leave-home-without-it beauty product? What do you have to put on every day before you face the world?

Wow I also rarely wear makeup. I can’t get over how much money and time people are wasting on hiding themselves from others! I have friends who’s own kids don’t recognise them without makeup. That’s really sad. The only thing I use every day is lip balm, which is MAC tinted lip conditioner. Healthy hair and healthy skin is what looks most naturally beautiful.

My world falls apart without my Aveno lip protectant balm. Its the only product I’ve found that not only protects & repairs, but also stay put throughout the day with minimal need to re-apply!

I can’t leave the house without my Nars blush in orgasm, Rosebud Lip Salve, and Covergirl lash exact mascara. I would look like dead woman walking without them:) Oh, and I always put on my Skinceuticals Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30.

I can’t leave my dorm room without Rosebud Lip Salve or Vaseline on my lips. On really good days, I also use NARS lip gloss in Orgasm.
