What’s Your Flavor … Makeup

In the past, I’ve noticed some interesting trends among Pastors Wives.

Saturday I had tea with my sweet friend and makeup guru, Laura. She asked me what kind of makeup I wear.

Bare Escentuals.

She told me that it is quite popular among Pastors’ Wives. She even joked that she wears it when she wants to feel like one of us … that cracked me up.

So, of course I’m curious now.Β What kind of make-up do you wear? Is this the most popular among ministry ladies?

    I’m a PW & I wear Clinique. Feel like I just gave a confession πŸ™‚ Haha! Always have, love their products & they give great gifts! I’m a sucker for free stuff πŸ™‚

  2. Netta

    This is funny!
    I appreciate the wide range of topics you cover! πŸ™‚
    Besides wearing Mary Kay foundation & cover-up, the rest of my make-up is whatever was on sale that I had a coupon for & was in the color I wanted! LOL

  3. Amy

    Totally what is on sale, and 9 x’s out of 10, I like it better than the more expensive brands I use from time to time.
    I have some Lancome right now that I got as a gift and I like it lots, too. Free or on sale is my love language though! πŸ™‚

    I love my Mary Kay tinted moisturizer and mineral powder. Those are the only things I stick to a certain brand. Eye make-up is totally whats on sale or whatever colors look fun at the moment.

    I have been a Bare Esssentials girl! =) First, I wore Sheer Cover. I made the switch to B.E. after some theatrical dance performances. I found when I start to sweat, it made my face itchy. I loved B.E. but wanted to revisit liquid foundation from back in the junior high school days! =) I have loved the liquid foundation I have found, but still have the HUGEST stash of B.E.

    Bare Essentials for the most part!!! I also got a great eye kit from Smashbox (which just saying that name makes me feel cooler!) last October that I LOVE. (It was a steal! and it intro’d me to my favorite make-up products… creme eye-liner w/ a brush. Love it)

  7. Elise

    I love Ulta, especially their eye shadow/eye-liners, etc. I don’t wear a ton of foundation or anything else. So this is my go to brand for eye makeup. I love it, and they also have great sales!

  8. Laurie

    Bare Escentuals wearer, here! Love, love, love my BE! I’ve used it for years and will occasionally stray but I always come back. Interesting survey! πŸ™‚

  9. Heather

    I wear Clinique foundation, Covergirl mascara and everything else is MAC. I tried B.E. but I didn’t like how it looked at the end of the day on my skin.

    another PW here that wears Mary Kay… been using it for 35 years. Still keep my consultant status so I can get it at a discount price πŸ™‚

    Clinique…they have this great stuff that I call putty that I can fill in my pores–is that TMI? πŸ™‚
    I was a mary kay lady for a short time a long while back.
    I have never tried BE, but it sounds intriguing…

  12. Jenn Becker

    Ha! That’s funny. I’m a die hard Bare Escentuals fan. πŸ™‚ I’ve been wearing it for a few years now and I won’t go back to anything else. I’m pretty sure I’m due some sort of endorsement fees by now. πŸ˜‰

    Ok I feel like it is a pretty close contest between BE, Mary Kay and Clinique. Hummm …. interesting. πŸ™‚

    Well, my mother-in-law is a PW too and she uses Bare Escentuals. So, that’s one vote in her honor!

    I used to use Clinique when I was in hs/college. Since I got married, I have pretty much brand hopped to what’s on sale! One year (many years ago) I asked my hubby to buy me “Tommy Girl” perfume for Christmas. He told me that I needed to realize that I was a “Wal-Mart Girl” now that I married a preacher! =D So, this “Wal-Mart Girl” doesn’t buy department store brand make-up much any more!

  15. Holly Santasiere

    I must be the odd man out. I wear L’oreal True Match for my foundation, but a big mix and match of the brands of everything else.

  16. Sarah

    This post and the comments are making me smile tonight! I am not loyal to any particular brand and am a “what’s on sale that I like,” kind of girl. About the only thing that I never stray from is Almay’s eye make-up remover pads. Those are the best!

    (and as I read through the past trends noted, I had to chuckle that I was indeed a teacher in my “former life,” and so were several other wives from our church’s staff. I had never thought about that before!)

    Mary Kay–because a friend is my ‘consultant’ and I’m so allergic to everything, it was the best way to try & find something I’m not allergic to! and now I’m just plain hooked

  18. Crystal Johnson

    well, I have super sensitive skin and used to love prescriptives virtual skin (no longer available:() until one day, my skin changed it’s mind and I could no longer wear:( I’ve been a B.E. girl ever since b/c my skin only seems to like mineral powder these days! I like make-up I can’t feel! I like Loreal infallible eyeliner, but everything else is whatever. I also like neutrogena mineral eye shadow which I can no longer find. I hate when that happens!

  19. Angie

    I started using L’Bri a few years back because I wanted a product that was organic and more natural with out chemicals my skin would absorb. But funny thing is … I was thinking about BE this morning because I like the idea of just brushing on a powder rather than a liquid foundation.

  20. Krista

    i was an MK addict for awhile – my birthmom is a consultant so i have easy access to goodies πŸ™‚ however, i converted to Bare Escentuals awhile ago. their foundation is simply the best thing i’ve ever used, and i have *very* sensitive skin. it just works, plain and simple!

  21. Kendra

    Been wearing Mary Kay since I was 12 – my aunt was a consultant… and I’ve been using it for 26 years (now you know how old I am :). I don’t have the guts to even venture out and try another brand… this must be one area of comfort, lol.

  22. Lori Wilhite Post author

    Ok … here are the end of the weekend tallies.

    My makeup guru friend, Laura, is correct. BE wins out.

    But coming in a close second are all of the Mary Kay lovers.

    And Clinique pulled in quite a few votes too.

    So, there you have the results to another “trend watch” around here. πŸ™‚

    I’m another “walmart girl” and a pw. Also, I very rarely put on makeup except for Sunday mornings so what I do buy lasts a LONG time! Of course, a small town has the advantage of being less dressy/madeup/high maintenance in what is “average” for women than other places (suburbs of Chicago) where I’ve lived!

  24. stephanie hogarth

    PW from Australia here! Die hard bare Escentuals user as well! Thats so funny – never occurred to me there would be a PW make up! I think I am almost as zealous for converting people to BE as to Jesus πŸ™‚
