Today I’m going to do something a little more spontaneous. I wanted to give everyone an honest look at what I currently carry around with me in my makeup bag! So I ran over to my purse, whipped out my makeup bag and laid out all of my products on my desk!
***Disclaimer*** (I don’t keep a great variety of products in my purse, just because I usually do my makeup at home and don’t want to risk losing/breaking/ruining the products. The items in my purse are just there because I recently wore makeup looks that involved the products and needed touch-ups throughout the day.)
Item #1: Travel Size Coach Perfume Bottle
Okay so I keep this in my purse for emergencies! & you know what I’m talking about, you rush out of the house in the morning and totally forget to spray some perfume before leaving. I feel like every girl does this. It’s a right of passage lol. Anyways, I keep this one in my purse because LOOK how cute it is and plus it smells so good; It has a fruity/floral scent, which I LOVE. (I don’t know the name of this perfume, but it’s Coach)
Item #2: Smashbox Be Legendary Long-Wear Lip Lacquer
Okay, so I’m not sure what this shade is called, I’ve literally looked all over the bottle and even online and still cannot find it. It must be pretty old, but it still looks good. It’s like a peachy-nude shade and I used it a few days ago, so that’s why it is in my purse! Oh, also I think this shade is perfect and the color lasts FOREVER.
Item #3: Milani Baked Blush (Shade: Luminoso)
So, let me first start off by saying that this is one of my favorite drug-store blushes. I’m not positive on the price of this product, but it’s so inexpensive and VERY great quality. I love this shade on me, personally, but I also feel like it would pop on any skin tone. I have no clue why this was in my purse, but I do LOVE it.
Item #4: Victoria’s Secret “Scandalous” Perfume.
I actually have two of these little bottles, I keep one in my purse and one at home, because I love the scent SO much. It’s probably my favorite perfume from Victoria’s Secret; as you can tell, it’s half empty.
Item #5: Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick
I’m terribly sorry that I didn’t include a picture of the ACTUAL lipstick, itself. NICE GOING KRISTEN, NICE. But this lipstick is in the shade Fire Engine, it’s a really deep red color. A friend actually gave me this and I haven’t even tried it on yet, which is why it’s in my purse, but I do actually plan on using it in an upcoming makeup tutorial (wink, wink)
Item #6: Travel Size Bad Gal Lash by Benefit Cosmetics
I really don’t like to keep full sized mascaras in my purse. Mainly because I RARELY use mascara like while I’m out of the house. Like, I usually apply it before leaving and if I’m not wearing it, it’s because I don’t want to! So, this one is just in case I forget to put on mascara ever. I also just really like this particular brand of mascara anyways.
Item #7: Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer
I always make a point to keep chap-stick (any kind) in my purse, because for some reason I always suffer from dry lips. Especially now that I’ve been wearing lipstick alot, so I like to keep this on hand, just in case. Oh and it’s in the shade Plum, which is a really gorgeous dark mauve-burgundy shade.
Item #8: Travel Size Watt’s Up Illuminator by Benefit Cosmetics
Honestly, there’s no actual reason for this to be in my purse. I don’t even remember why it was in there in the first place. However, I do like this highlighter, it’s not my absolute favorite, but it does make my skin shimmer in a pretty way.
Item #9: BH Cosmetics ‘Bronze Paradise’ Palette
So I actually just put this in my purse this morning, because I didn’t have time to finish my eyeshadow at home; I was running late for work. I really just chose this palette because I like the huge mirror in it. The quality of this product is INSANE. If you have seen my recent makeup look that involved that bright turquoise color, you know how pigmented each shade is. I plan on doing a review over this product pretty soon, so let me know if you would like to see that.
Item #10: Nude Dude Mini-Eyeshadow by the Balm Cosmetics
Again, I’m really sorry I didn’t include a picture of the eyeshadow itself. I really just forgot because I wanted this to be a quick, spontaneous post. So, if anyone really wants to see what this eyeshadow looks like, PLEASE let me know. It is in the shade ‘Flirty’ and I have featured this in my recent “Everyday Glam Tutorial” because I love the shade so much! It’s such a pretty purple-brown shimmery color and it is SO BLENDABLE. I actually put it in my purse to show one of my friends.
Item #11: Elf Lip-Stick and BareMinerals Lip Liner
I put these two together because I didn’t really feel like doing a single picture over each of them (LOL LAZY) But, I’ve been using the lip liner a lot lately, and it’s in the shade Mauve. Really this lip liner goes with pretty much every lipstick I love to wear, so I like have it with me at all times. I just put the lipstick in my bag because I used it a few days ago and was planning on touch-ups throughout the day; If you want to know more about the lipstick, check out my “E.L.F Products Review.”
Item #12: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder
So this is one of my favorite powders, it really keeps my face matte without looking flaky and dry like most powders do. I usually use this one whenever I’m doing a really natural look, just because the finish is so nice and it keeps my skin from looking super shiny and oily.
