1. Blush- Any type of lipstick can be used as cream blush
2. Mascara-Mascaras spoil easily, false eyelashes have a much better effect
3. Lipgloss- Actually if you want a shiny look you can just used vasaline
4. Contour powder- light brown eyeshadow can do the same job.
5. Any "anti-aging" product- There is no such thing, everyone gets wrinkles and get old.

1. lipstick is more greasy and not everyone has the skin type to use cream blush, that's why powder blush is very popular.
2. false eyelashes pull out your natural lashes and are tough to apply. Drugstore mascara works well and is cheap enough to toss after a couple of months.
3. vaseline can be goopier and adds no color. Most women I know like gloss with a small hint of color in it.
4. your skin is obviously a different color than mine. Brown eye shadow used for contouring would look like dirt on my face.
5. everyone gets old, I'm in my early 50s with no wrinkles. YMMV.

This is probably the only tool (other than tweezers) that I DO find generally effective.

Instead of getting defensive and finding it necessary to "counter" everything the OP offered as useless beauty products, where are yours? Yeesh.

To the OP: My idea of a useless beauty product is the eyelash curler.

My point was that someone's must have is someone else's most useless and vice versa.

I can't even think of something that I would consider useless, because if I don't use it it's not really on my radar.

I do have to say that I love my eyelash curler. How do y'all curl your eyelashes?

I don't have any "useless" products either:

moisturizer(s) - help my skin feel better
primer - smooths out the pores
eyelash curler - a MUST have for me
eyebrow pencil - a must for me as well, my eyebrows have gotten awfully thin
I personally don't use a bronzer, I'm fair and think it looks fake (or I don't know how to use it, LOL)
