What’s in my makeup bag

I am back from my The Makeup show Dallas trip. It was amazing. I will do a post with the mini haul I did and talking about the experience in the next few days. First I wanted to finish a couple posts I had planned before going. Do you have those moments you lose your passion a little well I did for blogging. I have shared some reasons why but this trip has lit my fire for this blog again. Plus all my readers who like, and subscribe. I appreciate it all!

Here are the items of things I keep on hand in my handbag/purse.


My sephora Pantone makeup bag from last season


Does anyone else carry way more lippies then they need too? These are a continual flow of change but what I had currently in the bag. The brands are revlon, younique, bare minerals, clinique, NYX, maybelline, and Tarte.





These next pictures are my usual staples. My Aladdin compact mirror (LOVE LOVE LOVE this thing) an ecotools portable kabuki, and a bare minerals compact with silk minerals foundation powder in it.


Eye drops, portable toothbrush, floss, hand cream, SPF face lotion



Lastly, an all purpose tool thing, hair accessories, mascara, and concealer.

WHat do you keep in your makeup bag?

Current Favorites

This was suppose to be an August Favorites post but it’s way to far into august to now call it that and really they are current favorites not necessarily August alone. 😀

057036 Keihls eye cream. I found this in my stash and brought it back out. A Mary Kay sampler. The blush on me has lasted at least six hours and the eye shadows at least ten if not more. A look done using all the products mentioned. Disclaimer I purchased all these items myself. And my thoughts are always my own.
I don’t care for the new Milani Bella line as eyeshadows but these two colors as highlights are amazing!




Mally Perfect Prep under eye brightener. This stuff really is what she calls a face lift in a bottle. It can be used other places for a gorgeous effect like around the nose and on bridge.
Shany Brush I have been using for foundation. It is synthetic and not especially soft but it does a great job at buffing the foundation into your skin.
A famous summer staple for contouring. What else can be said? 😀
This brow gel is less expensive and just as awesome as my beloved Tarte Eyebrow Mousse. I want to get the blonde color as well.
I’ve been mixing these two foundations for a satin perfect color match flawless look.
These two lip combo items have been long lost cousins. They compliment each other so well. The lip stick is bare minerals my favorite brand for lipsticks.
Close up of the foundation color mixed and how stay put the brow gel is as this is dried and rubbed.
I find the Mally eye pencils to be even more creamier then Urban Decay’s and has the same longevity. It glides on and I want every color. lol


The last picture is the swatches of the rest of the products. It also shows the coloring of the foundations alone.

Are any of these your favorite as well or a not so favorite? Share below or you can do random comments and questions. Don’t forget my social media’s. I had a mini hiatus but I have been more active recently.

Mascara Review: Mally


Quick review as this was a meh product for me. No need to elaborate a lot. 😀

  • If you love long lasting mascara this is a great one
  • If you love a wet formula
  • If you love the more spidery look

This Mascara is for you.

I like all those things yet this one was not for me. I wore it for two weeks and decided it is heavy on my lashes. And it is so messy and a lot comes off on the wand. I will use it up on occasions but I decided no longer for day wear.
