What’s in my makeup bag

I decided to do a quick post with updated makeup that I’m currently using and loving. Things can change quickly, but if I’m really, really impressed with an item it stays in my bag for longer. It’s not a full products review type of post, but just a quick sneak into my makeup bag and things that I’ve been reaching for on a daily basis over last few weeks.


I need to start with my new makeup bag. I received it as a free gift, when I was buying Lulu Guinness handbag, and I really like it. It fits just enough makeup that I need when I travel and this lips pattern on it is just adorable. I never buy makeup bags, I usually use what is added as a free gift or get makeup bags that are part of gift sets.


A few months ago Chanel launched a new foundation – Les Beiges and it received really good reviews straight away. I really fell in love with it and it’s my daily foundation now. Review HERE

I can’t believe that I didn’t do a full review on Laura Mercier foundation primer. It’s a really iconic piece now and I’ve had it for quite a while. I don’t use a primer on a daily basis as I don’t have much time in the morning, but it’s my go to primer if I go out or if I have an important event.


Dior loose powder is my new addition, which I certainly didn’t need, as I already have one. It’s quite a compact product and I carry that in my bag for touch ups during the day. I absolutely love it and I will definitely do a full review on it, as it really is a standout among loose powders.

Better Than Sex Mascara from Too Faced had a review on my blog HERE. I’m just finishing it off. I love the effect it has on my eyes, but I won’t repurchase, as it doesn’t stay on long, and it smudges. Too Faced launched a waterproof version of it, so I might be tempted to try that for summer holidays.



Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow palette had a review HERE and I still use it a lot. Sometimes I skip a purple shade and use the other colours for more neutral and natural look.

On it’s way there is a full review on Sleek contour and highlight palette, so I’m not going to say much about it as yet. I use it every day and it saves me a lot of time.


I wasn’t really into winged line type of makeup before, but I’ve been experimenting a bit recently and I came to conclusion that it suits me. I purchased L’Oreal liner and it’s really nice to use. I find this type of pen really easy to use. The only down side with this product is that I feel like the colour fades a bit after few hours. I’m doing my research and I shall try to pick something a bit more long lasting soon.

I’ve been using lots of lip products recently. I might do a post on my recent lip faves soon. I forgot to include in here a piece that I use pretty much every day, which is Inglot pencil, but full review is HERE.

That cute little lipstick is from Tom Ford and it’s awfully expensive. This little treasure is £27 but unfortunately it’s really fantastic lipstick. Very well pigmented, creamy but stays on lips pretty well and it doesn’t dry my lips. Love the packaging as well and no doubt I want more.

Clarins Eclat Minute is a tinted lip balm. I have two colours, but this one is my all time favourite. I use it on it’s own or on my Inglot 74 lip liner. It smells so so good, like toffee with chocolate and it gives very nice, subtle tint. Keeps my lips moisturised well.

Last product that I’ve been enjoying to use recently is NARS lip pencil. It’s quite a chunky lip pencil, which can be easily used to cover all lips. I feel like it’s meant to be used more like a lipstick than lip pencil. The texture of it is softer than ordinary pencils, which makes it quick and easy to apply. I bought a matte, deep red and I really love it for going out. They have it available in satin finish as well.
