Whats In My Makeup Bag..? Handbag Edition!

Hi Ladies,

As I have never actually done a whats in my makeup bag post (I know - crazy!) I thought it was about time I jumped on the bandwagon! As my make up collection is in complete disarray at the moment with moving house, I decided to show you what I carry around in the little makeup bag which I keep in my handbag.

This was a Christmas present which came with some smellies in, I believe it is from boots - how cute are the cupcakes! I literally emptied out the contents and photographed them for you so there were a couple of things which had somehow creeped inside (hello essie nail varnish!).

So - Whats inside?

MAC eyeshadow in tissueweight - This is a lovely peachy pink, perfect for day to day wear.

MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer NW15 - This concealer has great coverage and lasts forever.

MAC Viva Glam GAGA lipstick - Everyone needs a fabulous pink lippie!

Essie Exposure Nail Varnish - My current favourite nail polish, no idea why it was in here though!

Loreal Voluminous Mascara - I picked this up recently, it used to be my holy grail mascara and I still think its fab, but its a little clumpier than I remember!

MAC Teddy Eyeliner - dark brown eyeliner with a touch of gold

Stila kajal Eyeliner in topaz - a nude/peach eyeliner, perfect for the inner corner and lower lash line to brighten up tired eyes!

Loreal Super Liner in carbon gloss - Liquid eyeliner with great staying power

MAC Brushes - 217 great for blending, mini 187 I use my full size 187 for applying liquid foundation but I use this one for applying my MSF natural for touch ups during the day, mini 168 lovely fluffy blush brush.

And finally I keep these in the front pocket of my handbag so I couldn't leave them out! :) MAC msf natural, and Stereo Rose - Which I have already hit pan on! If anyone knows a good dupe, please let me know!

and thats everything :-)

Hope you're having a great week!

Product Rediscovery, and a little update! :-)

Hi Ladies,

Gosh its been a while! But I'm back with a product rediscovery and a little update for you all! :) Over Christmas I've been moving house, and during the move I sorted through my makeup and decided what I wanted to keep and what was definitely past its sell by date! One product which hopped straight out of my dusty makeup drawer and into my handbag was this Stila convertible colour in Petunia.

This was actually the first Stila product I ever purchased about four years ago (not the exact one I'm showing you -I promise I'm not still using makeup that old!). If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know that I'm a big fan of Stila products, although they're not widely available in the UK any more I have seen occasional things pop up in stores like Tk Maxx so definitely look out for them!

The Convertible colours are cream blushes which can also be used as a lips tints. Petunia is a really pretty pink which I find adds just the right pinch of colour to my cheeks in these wintery months! Its really well pigmented so a little goes a long way, and its a great product for the handbag as not only is it a two in one product but it has a little mirror inside too! :)

In other news, I had a lovely Christmas and New Year and I hope you all did too :) I did get a few beauty produts as Christmas presents which I have been enjoying so I'll hopefully do a post on them soon. I've really been enjoying watching dvd's at the moment and have been picking up a few cheap ones over the sales, two of my best buys have been Britannia High episodes 1-4 for £1.99 - bargain! Did anyone else watch this while it was on? So cheesey but my and my friend absolutely loved it! and The devil wears prada for £3.00 what a fab film. If you have any recommendations let me know!

And thats all for now! Hope you're having a great week, its almost the weekend!
