Do you like multi-tasking beauty products?


[note color=”#FFE4C4″]A reader’s query for an all-in-one face base (foundation+concealer+powder) set me thinking about multi-tasking beauty products. I know a lot of women like multi use products but I for one prefer products that do one thing – and do it well. I’ve never been a big fan of lip/cheek tints – most can be drying on the lips or too creamy for my oily skin if not drying on the lips. Shimmery blushes make my pores look huge and I prefer using a matte/satin blush with a highlighter on the cheek bones.  If I’m traveling though, I do like taking along such products to save up space – something like Maybelline BB stick is pretty handy – it takes up very little space and doubles up as concealer.

The only multi-tasking product that I can say I LOVE is the Kerastase Elixir Ultime Serum – you can use it pre-wash, as a leave in conditioner or as a serum on dry or damp hair to tame the frizz and add some shine. Sometimes I even use it before using heat on my hair.

    Me neither…… I like the excitement of having different products for different purposes….. Moreover, I love to exaggeratedly spread all of my different beauty products and then use each of them with the exact purpose it was intended for…… the sheer exuberance of it all is invigorating.
    Hehe! But now, on a more serious note, I don’t think I can replace toning/serum/moisturizer/sunblock with any all-in-one multitasker. The same holds true for lip/cheek tints, wet/dry eye liners or gel/dry blushers or foundation+concealer+powder. They each serve a certain purpose! :):):)

    I have a couple of them(The Body Shop Cheek & Lip Dome & Dior MultiTouch Color) and find it easier to carry when I am on the go and for quick touch-ups. However, a big no no for them for regular use.

    multi-tasking when it comes to beauty products, hmmmm I use my garnier tinted eye concealer for spots on my face too. that’s the only level of multi-tasking I have done as far as beauty stuff is concerned.

    Can’t say I’m a fan of multi-tasking products. They give me the ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’ kinda feeling haha!
