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?

Too bad Nicole didn’t claim a “brush”,I’m glad she’s not so gaunt but seriously~ that hairstyle looks like a female version of Trump’s comb-over.

I cannot leave the house without my Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick. It replinishes your lips’ natural moisture and also gives them a slight pinkish tinge.

For me, I woild have to say I cannot leave home without NARS blush in Orgasm, and Maybelline Full and Soft mascara!

Nars orgasm blush has the rite amount of color/shimmer and it it brightens up a bare face exquisitly!!

honoable mention goes to the flawless everyday minerals foundation! it makes my skin perfect without looking like I am wearing makeup! And you cant beat the price!

Just Guerlain Terracotta bronzer and mascara in the summertime though with Olay complete moisturizer! 2 thumbs up! :)

I can’t leave home without mascara. It doesn’t matter what kind as long as I have something on my lashes!

If I have an extra minute to spare, I’ll add MAC kohl liner and C-Thru lipglass.

I never leave home without MAC. I use their Zoom mascara, Chestnut lipliner and Beaux lipgloss. The lipliner also doubles in contouring and filling in my eyebrows.

i can’t leave home without my stila lip gloss. its a little on the expensive side, but its totally worth it. vanilla is definitely my favorite, and i always have it in my bag or in my pocket.
