What Is In My (Make-Up) Bag?

Today I thought I would give you a sneaky peek into my stuffed make-up bag. I always feel like I should have been an honorary Boy Scout because some of the things I carry definitely encompasses the motto of always be prepared. But I couldn't be a Boy Scout because I'm sure my brother would have killed me if I tried to tag along on their fun adventures (plus I am a girl and all), so we'll just pretend that was a Girl Scout's motto instead.

Random essentials:Goody spin pin, comb, hair bands, tweezers, paper soap, hand sanitizer, mirror, Kleenex, cuticle pen, emery board, toothpaste, toothbrush

A ridiculous assortment of lipsticks and glosses

Why do I have so many lip products? I honestly couldn't say for sure, but I'm pretty susceptible to marketing for new beauty products and over the last few years, I've gotten into wearing lipstick and want to try every color under the sun. Here is a closer view of a few in my current selection:

CoverGirl (Spellbound and Divine are two of my favorite colors)
(Buy Spellbound here and Divine here)

A random N.Y.C. color and Tom Ford in Cherry Lush
I went on a serious hunt for the perfect red last year and Cherry Lush was it for me. A true red with no hint of orange. Tom Ford is definitely a splurge, but I would totally buy another color. I mean, how sleek and sophisticated is that tube?

MAC, by far, always hits it out of the park with the fun colors and collaborations. Just two of my millions of pink colors and a perfect shade of orange.

Are you like me and carry tons of things in your purse or make-up case? Are you a lipstick or lip gloss gal (or both)? Do you have a favorite stand-by lip color?

    Wow! So many lip products, indeed. But, it's always nice to have options. Your makeup bag is gorgeous! I'm currently using a bag that was part of a set my aunt bought for me...15 years ago! Time for an upgrade, wouldn't you say? :)

  2. I have the same RM make up bag too! It's adorable!

  3. So many great products! I do love that Tom Ford lipstick, it's one of my favorites and like you said, I like that it's a great red but not on the orange/coral range. Perfect.

  4. I feel much better after seeing how many lip products you carry around. I'm the same way!

    One of my favorite lip products is Tarte's lip stain. It feels really moisturizing, easy to apply, and leaves a hint of color when it has worn off.

  5. ha, glad I am not the only one...I have a MILLION lipsticks in my bag too...sadly I only wear 2 of the colors...felt adventurous when I bought them I guess...hope you are having a great week.

  6. this is making me want to try some more lipsticks! lol...great collection!



Leave your thoughts after the beep....beep. I love to hear from you!
