I packed my make-up bag for a getaway weekend recently and apparently, these are my must haves.  
I've already gushed about the healing powers of Egyptian Magic here, here and here, so I'll give a quick review of a couple of my other staples featured here.
I've been using this for several years now.  The shade on the right has a subtle sparkle and overall neutral hue; can be mixed with very neutral base on the left.  If I don't want it to look like i am wearing any eyeshadow, but i just want some coverage (c'mon, we all love coverage) I just put a small coat of the left shade.

The Multiple in LUXOR

I'm a sucker for anything marketed for multiple purposes!  This is a subtle highlighting stick that I use under the brow, on the cheeks and mostly importantly to create the "C".  The Nars specialist pointed out this technique of creating a "C" starting on TOP (above) of the brow, moving around the outer eye and finishing at the inner lower eye corner.  This gives your eye cream an extra boost.  Hey, I cannot even put a price on anything that helps me create illusion that I am well rested, together, and am not up with children at odd hours of the night!

My favorite lip balm, cuticle cream, everything salve.
Also mentioned here and here!

I'll finish up my go to reviews next week.
 In the meantime, care to share any products you are currently LOVING?

I just switched, per Whoorl's suggestion, to Oil of Olay daily moisturizer with SPF 30. It doesn't sting like others seem to that have sunscreen in them. This one has zinc. Loving it for daily use.

Good to know. I've been obsessed with an Origins Moisturizer, which I'll review later, but it's only SPF 15 and has a tint. May have to throw Olay into the mix.
