Hey everyone! Today’s post is a peek into my makeup bag that’s always with me. I’m someone that does my makeup on-the-go so I do have a lot of stuff in there – especially lip products because I just can’t decide what shade I want to wear so it’s good to have choices, right? :p
My makeup bag is a pink polka-dotted pouch that I bought from Daiso for really cheap and it worked well for me up to when I started college and had no time to do my makeup in the morning and had to throw a bunch of products into it. Once I unzip it, things just start rolling out so I might have to get a new one.
But without further ado, here’s what’s in my makeup bag!
|(1) Biore UV Aqua Rich SPF 50+ PA+++; (2) Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Shine Free Cake Powder, (3) L’Oreal Super Blendable Concealer, (4) Benefit Fine One One|
1. Biore UV Aqua Rich SPF50+ PA+++
This is a sunscreen and it is a sample size that I got as a GWP when I bought the Biore Cleansing Oil. I like this sunscreen because it doesn’t feel heavy on the face and it’s not too sticky. It has a very watery consistency.
2. L’Oreal Super Blendable Concealer
I know, I know.. this concealer is way too light for my skin! But I actually use it under my eyes and on my highlight areas to well.. highlight lol! I love this concealer because it really is super blendable and very creamy, yet doesn’t crease or flake.
3. Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Shine Free Cake Powder
I like using this powder when I don’t want to wear foundation. It takes the shine out of my face, and provides a little bit of coverage and colour. It doesn’t cake up as well, it’s a pretty good powder.
4. Benefit Fine One One
This is the only blush I take on the go because it’s just really practical and easy. Literally just swipe it on and blend. The colour is gorgeous too – it has a built in highlighter as well! I did a full review on this Benefit Fine One One Blush awhile ago if you want to check that out.
|(1) Etude House Dr Lash Essence-Primer Day; (2) Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara; (3) Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara; (4) Benefit Gimme Brow|
1. Dr Lash Essence-Primer Day
This is a lash treatment for longer and more volumised lashes and it comes in a set with an overnight treatment. I love this stuff, it has really helped my lashes grow out. This is a primer that you use before mascara.
2. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
I got this mascara from the Too Faced Beauty Blogger Darlings set from my recent haul. When I first used this, I liked it because it gives me long and volumised lashes but the formula is very wet and hard to work with. It also smudges pretty badly on my oily eyelids.
3. Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara
Love this mascara! This has a drier formula when compared to the Better Than Sex Mascara and I love the effect it gives to lashes. It makes it super dark, bold and long. This is pretty much my everyday mascara, but this is a sample size and it’s almost all up 🙁
4. Benefit Gimme Brows
This is my favourite brow product! It’s just such an easy product to apply. It gives my eyebrow colour and keeps them in place all day long. Love it!
|(1) elf Liquid Eyeliner; (2) Miss Hana Gel Eyeliner Pencil; (3) Inglot AMC Shine Eyeshadow in #37; (4) Cerro Qreen Eyeliner Brush|
1. elf Liquid Eyeliner in Black
This eyeliner is really easy to apply and is very pigmented. Best part? It’s only $1. I love using this for winged eyeliner.
2. Miss Hana Gel Eyeliner Pencil
I love gel eyeliners, but I hate that you have to use a brush to apply it so I love this one because it comes in a pencil form and you can easily apply it to your eyes. It is super creamy and glides on without tugging.
3. Inglot AMC Shine Eyeshadow in #37
One of my favourite eyeshadows of all time. This is a beautiful all over the lid colour for a beautiful bronzy look. It’s not too dark, so it’s appropriate for college. The formula is also very smooth and it’s really pigmented, shimmery and gorgeous!
4. Cerro Qreen Eyeliner Brush
This eyeliner brush is great for when my gel eyeliner pencil is a little bit blunt so I can really smooth out the edges of the liner on my eyes. It’s also small and has a short handle and fits perfectly into my makeup bag.
1. Maybelline Color Whisper in Pink Possiblities
I love Maybelline Color Whispers, they are so smooth and moisturising. This is just a very easy lipstick that I can just slap on in the car without a mirror.
2. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Summer Sunset
This is one of my newest additions to my lippies collection. It is a darker nude colour that is perfect for every day wear. The formula is light, but still pigmented.
3. YSL Glossy Stain in 07 Corail Aquatique
One of my favourite every day colours – it is a light coral colour. I love that it’s really glossy and it stains my lips so I don’t have to reapply throughout the entire day.
4. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Streak
This is a super creamy and buttery lipstick with great pigmentation. It’s a gorgeous pink-leaning coral and it feels really lightweight on the lips.
5. MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Speed Dial
MAC lipsticks are super creamy and this is my current favourite lipstick shade from them. It’s a gorgeous light pink with a hint of purple.
6. Etude House Rosy Tint Lips in #8 After Blossom
One of the best lip products I’ve ever tried! It’s a creamy lip tint and it has a foam applicator. This is a great product for gradient lips. The colour is a darker rosy pink colour and it’s so pigmented! It also feels very light on the lips.
|(1) Laura Mercier Brilliant Glace in Rose Prism; (2) Maybelline Lip Polish in Pop 5; (3) Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment; (4) Benefit Coralista Lip Gloss; (5) Palmer’s Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter|
1. Laura Mercier Brilliant Glace in Rose Prism
I included this in my favourite lip glosses post because I’ve been loving it on top of darker lipsticks. The gloss and shimmer it gives to the lipstick is gorgeous and it feels really light once it sets.
2. Maybelline Lip Polish in Pop 5
I like wearing this alone because it’s very pigmented and it makes my lips look really glossy and smooth. It has a very slippery texture to it.
3. Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment
I love this lip treatment! I apply it to bed and also under my lipsticks! It really helps my lips stay soft and hydrated.
4. Benefit Coralista Lip Gloss
I love wearing coral lipsticks so I like using this orangey-coral lip gloss to top over a pink lippie and make it coral!
5. Palmer’s Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter
This is another lip balm that I love using. This one is more liquidy and I love using this as a clear gloss as well because it gives a beautiful gloss to the lips when applied.
I know.. I need to clean out my makeup bag! What are the staple makeup products in your makeup bag?
