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?

No way would I ever leave the house without concealer! I don’t care what kind, just anything that covers! I do love Stila, Prescriptives and Chanel.

I never never leave home without Olay Complete moisturizer SPF 15.

Never, never, never without mascara!

MAC Studio Fix foundation. I will never be able to use anything else again. It finishes as a powder, but even in our cold Canadian winter, doesn’t make my skin look dry, just flawless! As well, Carmex lip balm. A whopping $2 at Walmart keeps my lips hydrated in our dry weather. Those are my must-haves.

My honourable mentions go to MAC lip glass in Viva Glam V and cream blush in Cherche.

I can’t leave without Benefit’s BeneTint on my cheeks and lips. It makes my pale skin look alive.

I never leave home without. . . . something on my lips! There is lip gloss in my purse, my desk drawer, each bathroom and the pocket of all my jackets. Fave of the day is Revlon Lipglide in Sheerly Burgundy. All time fave is Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey.

In the winter, I can’t leave home without a tube of Eucerin Hand Cream in my bag.

i can’t leave home without chapstick, but what i really love over it is Estee Lauder’s Ultra Gloss Ultra Brillance in Pearl Color. It gives me the perfect shine to my lips!

MAC under eye concealer. I look like I’ve been in fistfight without it.

I never leave home without Bobbi Brown Protective Face Lotion SPF 15 with Vitamin E and Chamomile. It absorbs quickly and leaves skin super smooth – perfect for applying underneath makeup!
