It’s been a minute since I did a post like this. It’s also apparently been a minute since I’ve been thru my makeup bag. Whew, it was kinda bad.
This is what I found:
6. Yes, you read that correctly. There are 6 lip balms in my makeup bag. The one I wear the most is the BKR Paris Water Lip Balm. It was in a box/bag subscription thing from last year. Allure, maybe? I’m almost out of it.
There is also some Vaseline Cocoa Butter Lip Therapy for very desperate lip situations, a Milani Keep It Smooth Lip Treatment, this is my favorite next to the Water Balm. There’s an EOS lip thing that I picked up from Ulta to keep in my car, and it never made it. A Blistex Co Enzyme Q 10 Deep Renewal, which sounds better than it really is and last but not least, a Revlon Kiss Balm in Tropical Coconut. Love this one. It’s the beach on your lips but without the sunburn or chapping.
4 lip liners. Profusion Matte Liner in Charmed, Essence In The Nude, which desperately needs to be sharpened. It’s seriously like splinter worthy. Hate that. And 2 Wet N Wild Gel liners in Dare to Comment and Gone Burgundy.
4 lip glosses, 2 eerily similar. Profusion Sparkling Lip Topper in Charmed. Bare Minerals, Gen Nude Gloss in the shade Everything. And the twins, Buxom’s White Russian and LA Colors Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Bare.
3 Matte Lip Creams. Ulta Beauty Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in what ever color this is, it’s a mini and there is no shade name on the packaging. Hate it when that happens. I like it, it’s comfortable and doesn’t get all over my teeth when I smile. This is important. The last two are Profusion Matte Lip Cremes, one in Charmed and one in Secret. These must have been in sets. A gloss, a liner and a lip creme. I like the lip cremes way better than the glitter gloss stuff.
8 lipsticks. Yes. I counted them twice. 8. Lipsticks. Y’all ready? Covergirl, Oh Sugar in the shade Caramel. It’s super translucent and thin. Make Up Forever, Artist Rouge Creme in C211. It’s supposed to have 6 hour wear. I don’t know about all that, but it does wear well. Feels sort of nourishing. Lorac Lipstick in Entrepreneur. These are some of my absolute favorite lipsticks. They are opaque with one swipe and they wear like creamy velvet. Milani Lip Creme in Nude. For when I’m really feeling bold, I like Colour Pop Lippie Stix in Ziggie. Another Covergirl lipstick in Soul Mate, an ELF Moisturizing Lipstick in Ravishing Rose and another favorite CYO lippie in Living Together.
No wonder there was no room in my bag, it was full of lip stuff.
There is also a Casa Toscana Rose Hip and Shae Butter hand lotion, an Estee Lauder Double Wear compact in Cool Bone, a large Wet n Wild Fergie powder brush to apply it with and 3 eyeshadow brushes. Which is kinda odd, because I don’t have any eye shadow in my bag at all. Or a tall as my Daddy would say. Oh, guess I could still tell y’all what they are, there’s an ELF flat shader with the gold ferrel and white pearly handle. A Morphe G 13 and a Morphe M139.
Anyway, that’s it. That’s what
is was in my makeup bag.
This is what I kept, and what I added.
I kept the Double Wear, added in Maybelline Fit Me Blush in Pink Rose and a very old Eco Tools mini blush brush. I kept the lotion, added in a Freedom Pro Palette in Secret Rose. I loved Freedom Cosmetics. I have quite a few of these palettes and use them when I want easy and fast. Like putting on my makeup in the school parking lot. It’s an afterthought, but I should probably add in some mascara as well. I kept the eye brushes, and Bare to Comment lip liner. Also kept the EOS lip balm that was meant for my car. Sometimes when I feel particularly wan and pale, I like to wear brighter lipstick, so I kept Ziggie. I left in the Entrepeneur and Living Together. It’s another no fuss, easy product. I kept Everything by Bare Minerals and also the Profusion lip creme in Matte Secret.
The coolest part of all of this is that now my makeup bag will actually close and if I get in a pinch and need to do my makeup in the school parking lot, or at my desk at lunch time, I’ll have what I need. ❤️
