Why didn't I think of that?!

Sometimes I use a product and stop for a second and think..."why didn't I think of that?" Are there ever moments you feel the same way? Here are some of the products in my beauty arsenal that I seriously wish I would have invented and can't live without!


It's hard to choose a favorite, but I think if I had to pick one I'm really happy they invented the wand!! I use to hate curling all my hair, but this little guy made it so much easier!
What are some products you are thankful were invented? Are there any beauty items you wish someone would invent?

xo,
Biana

p.s. Did you see my post over at Wedding Party's blog yesterday?

  1. Amen to the wand being invented! I seriously love curling my hair and don't know what I would do without it. My mom used to say she wished she had invented Beanie Babies back in the 90s cause she would have been a millionaire lol Happy Thursday xo

  2. Girl, I wonder that myself every day. There are so many little ideas what I see daily that I just can't believe I didn't come up with it first! I always kick myself over the hair straightener. I remember friends of mine trying to straighten their hair with an actual iron! LOL!

  3. I love my clarisonic so much. Totally my favorite product by far. I've never used a wand before, but have heard so many good things about them.

  9. UD's All-Nighter spray is a miracle worker. Absolutely genius! Why is curling easier with a wand? I usually use a 1" traditional iron, but now I'm intrigued!

  10. Working in a hospital there are so many things that make me say why didn't I think of that?! They're usually such easy things any one could have thought of but one smart guy did and now he's making bank!

  11. Ok first off I always think that with so many things!! Even like websites and apps! Like seriously I could have invented Instagram and been a billionaire haha! Anyways, I've been wanting to try that blender and now I think I need it!! I can not live without my wand either!! Definitely cuts curling time in half and looks so much more natural!!

  13. I love this! I have been thinking of getting a Clarisonic for some time now, but I just haven't. I am so bad at makeup and skin care that I am scared to venture out from my regular routine!

  14. Great post (so many fab ideas too!) The wand is one of my absolute necessities xo

  15. Ha, don't we all wish we invented one of these things? My favorite from your list would have to be the Beauty Blender. I wish I knew the secret to making this ordinary sponge so amazing!

  16. you will have to teach me to use the wand bc all i do is burn my fingers on it. and my hair looks like an afro. i love the beauty blender. i got it like a year ago in a popsugar must have box and was like wtc is this? i wouldn't have spent that much money on it but since i got it in the box, i was like hellll yeah. it's awesome! i wonder why they say that the original beauty blender is the only one we should buy. like how is it "special?"

    ReplyDelete
  17. I often think this too! So many simple yet brilliant ideas :) I keep hoping that one day a light bulb will go off in my head!

    ReplyDelete
  18. So many good products! It does make you wish you'd thought of something first :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. So many awesome tools! I'm currently waiting for my curling iron (which I use like a wand) to bite the dust so I can buy an actual wand! And I need that St. Tropez set! My white legs are blinding!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I did see it and totally loved it!!! How is that setting spray? Love the curler and eye makeup remover. Love the Clarisonic! Beautiful collage girl great job!! xoxoxo

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love most of those! The beauty blender is awesome! The eyelash curler is a staple and I just ordered the St. Tropez Tan Kit you posted above! I hope it works! Thanks for the suggestion!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am thankful for pretty much all of these! Especially self-tanner right about now!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Cute and appropriate title :). The clarisonic would be my fav here. You know me-- I order the replacement brushes new off ebay, :)

  24. I've had a wand for about 6 months now and still don't know how to use it! lol... Love, love my Clarisonic Mia!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is awesome! My Clarisonic and blender ball are AWESOME. And I definitely want to try that curling iron now. xo

  26. fabulous! i really want a clarisonic, everyone raves about them. i personally didnt like the wand thing - i am so clumsy i burned myself a thousand times before giving up. i can rock a curling wand pretty well though - and my hair is fine and thin and limp lol. i want one of those beauty blender thingys..

    ReplyDelete
  27. The beauty blender and the Clarisonic are in my arsenal. Why couldn't we have thought of it!! Ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Am I the only one who doesn't use an eyelash curler? I bought one a couple of years ago b/c I felt like I wasn't really a woman w/o one... STILL haven't used it! haha

    ReplyDelete
  29. wait, what is a beauty blender!?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hi there! Yeah, those pictures from my last post were taken in one of my favorite places (to look at). I always go by there and just stare. I love it!

    I didn't go to the bloggers event. I am currently applying to jobs (since I just finished school) and am trying to save as much money as I can. I have been really good at it, and that means not spending even on going out to eat, events, etc. I hope you had fun though!

    I haven't tried any of these products, but I'd love to try a wand<3

  31. Wow, I have such an old version old UD's Miracle Worker. It still works though and I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've never even heard of the wand! Genius. I'm in love with Tan Towels, the Stila waterproof liquid eyeliner and also the Clinique All About Eyes concealer (but use it on my whole face)! Great post, lady!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Eyelash underwear?!! What the heck?! Haha! yes there are always things I see that I'm like ugh! I could be a millionare! I can't think of anything off the top of my head right now though... :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. YES. yes. and yes. It's a good thing someone decided to make the waterproof mascara makeup remover. Because otherwise -- life would be a struggle.

  35. HUGE fan of the beauty blender!! I want to like the wand but every time I use it I burn myself!

    ReplyDelete
  36. OMG...I think the same thing ALL.THE.TIME. I guess we're just a day late and a dollar short...haha! My current obsession is the Click-N-Curl. It's like a set of round brushes, but the handle detaches, so you just leave the round brush part in your hair to set the volume and curl. It makes the whole blow-drying process at least 10X faster!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I never used to curl my hair because I HATED curling irons --- but then I discovered the conical wand and it is literally one of my favorite beauty items now! Great list - love my Clairsonic too!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I know, right? I'm loving your picks here- if ONLY I'd been the genius to come up the with Clarisonic, I'd be retired by now. :)

  39. i second you on the wand oh my gosh my curls are awesome and i can't get enough of my hair when i use the wand, actually i just took the clip part out of an old curling iron and hello curling wand!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I LOVE my clarisonic! Maybe you need to do a curling wand tutorial because I can't seem to use mine without giving myself 3rd degree burns.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm dying to try the beauty blender and the St. Tropez. This girl definitely needs a tan soon. Anything that shows my white-as-snow legs is not coming out of my closet until then! Love reading your beauty suggestions!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would die without an eyelash curler! lol I'll never be without a good one. That foes for my favorite Shu uemura eyeliner and Mac Mascara as well! I have something similar to the wand but usually I just make my hair a mess with it haha. Maybe the wand is better! XO

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh gosh, yes to all of this! I need to try an eyelash curler ASAP. I'm 25 and they still terrify me! I have this fear that I'm going to pull all of my lashes out!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I really need a wand!!! I am hair curling retarded

    ReplyDelete
  45. I feel like everyone talks about this beauty blender, maybe I need to jump on this wagon. I'm all about mascara, the other day I got to work and realized I only put mascara on ONE eye!!! WTF shoot me right then and there! I really need to carry it in my purse.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I clearly need to try the wand, but I do love my beauty blender - so simple yet so perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love my wand! And also love my Real Techniques beauty blender dupe!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I still haven't tried the Beauty Blender or Clarisonic - they're so expensive! But everyone raves it so I'll assume it's worth it :)
