Inside My Makeup Bag

September 6, 2013

Right now my makeup bag is loaded with too many lip products, but I can never be satisfied carrying just one or two lip items:
  1. Jo Malone Vitamin E Lip Conditioner (reviewed here)
  2. Dior Addict Gloss in Nuit Boreale #157
  3. Tom Ford Lip Shine in Abandon
  4. Tom Ford Lipstick in Pink Dusk (older packaging swatched here and here)
  5. YSL Voluptรฉ Sheer Candy in Lush Coconut
  6. Aerin Rose Hand and Body Cream (mini gift)
  7. MAC Lovechild Lipglass (the best mauve-plum for me)
  8. Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush #10
  9. Chanel Les Beiges Powder (reviewed here)
  10. Jo Malone Dark Amber and Ginger Lily (sample, on my wishlist)
  11. Trish McEvoy Short Handled Brush (old)

    I second that you have excellent taste and I love reading what you have to share. I don't carry as much makeup around and I try to pack as light as I can. I update the contents in my makeup bag daily so I only have the minimal amount of stuff to carry for touch up. For today, I have Chanel Les Beiges Powder, a mini Nars Laguna bronzer, Nars concealer (liquid version), Chanel Frivole blush, Chanel Nude rouge allure lipstick (discontinued I believe), Estee Lauder Citron Kiss lipgloss, and a hair tie. Another related thing I carry around but it could not fit in my makeup bag is a tube of fragrance lotion (matching or complimenting the perfume I wear that day). Jo Malone Dark Amber and Ginger Lily sounds lovely btw ๐Ÿ™‚

  • love your blog!

  • Ooh, I just knew that your make-up bag was going to be full of luxe and beautiful goodies:)

    I'm carrying a much smaller purse this week so my makeup bag is the bare bones. However, I've still managed to cram at least 3 lippies and a lip balm as well as powder, concealer and a multitude of liners in my LV mini pochette.

    I have so many faves, that nothing stay for too long in my makeup bag! I switch my lip color at least twice during the day, going from my favorite Tom Ford to another fave Cle de Peau lipstick. Just can not control myself:). Love Tom Ford Blush Nude lipstick pared with naked lipgloss; Cle de peau T10 and T9 (sometimes i mixe them). Love my chanel les beiges in B10. Sabrina, what are your final thoughts on chanel kabuki les beiges brush? Love my Kiehls BB spf 50! Strongly recommend! Love my Cle de Peau face luminizers. I have all three of them and YSL blush from fall2013 collection. Also givenchy lipstick from fall rose lexception. Cle de peau eyeshadow (from fall and all three from autumn collection). Cle de peau eye and lipliners. LOVE them. Ysl mascara. Guerlain dragun meteorites. This is a small part of my humble makeup bag. Probably my most favorites for right now

    I wish TF lipsticks stay the way the were released originally – in white cases…sigh:)

  • Loved this post! Love all the mauves and nudes.. currently in the market for a new nude lipstick, these all look gorgeous! x

  • Cute bag! Which lip items do you layer the most?

  • I love your little bag with all the luxe product ! It's just so eye pleasing. I carry a full make up set which includes my Fav Rmk Xmas 2012 , a few mini gloss from dior and chanel, a ZA mascara and 2 eyeliners! Felt insecure without them!

  • haha I always carry way too many lip products! I always have to have pressed powder, brush, and 5 million lip glosses

  • Love your lip product selection! Atm I don't carry much except for Givenchy compact powder, Diorskin Nude Coral Glow, NARS Tolรจde lipstick and a few Clarins Lip Perfectors. A small Caudalie hand creme, Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse and a few samples, Dior J'Adore and Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • One time I found 11 lip products in my makeup back. Eleven. I've definitely tried to bring that down some! My usuals are YSL Rouge Volupte Shine 08 Pink in Confidence, NARS Matte Velvet Lip Pencil in Sex Machine, NARS Multiple in Portofino or G-Spot for touch-ups, Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder (this is an essential), and a few assorted other things depending on my mood and what I'm wearing in particular that day!

  • I love it when you do a post like this. Because you have such wonderful taste and a keen eye for color nuances, we can't help but be curious about what's in your bag ๐Ÿ™‚ Since retiring, I carry very little around with me. I put on a full makeup in the morning and that's it for the day unless I have an evening event in which case I completely redo my makeup for the occasion. During the day I carry Jack Black lip balm, the lipstick and/or lip gloss du jour, and Les Beiges in #10. I also carry a moisturizing sunscreen for touch ups throughout the day. For evening, I carry the same types of lip products but I substitute Guerlain's Mรฉtรฉorites Wulong for Les Beiges and a regular hand lotion for the sunscreen. I definitely travel light.

  • Jo Malone Dark Amber and Ginger Lily is one of my favorite fragrances. I thought it was perfect for winter. (We skip fall in Texas, but if you have four seasons, it would be perfect for that, too.) Lime, Basil & Mandarin and Earl Grey & Cucumber are also favorites of mine

  • Very impressive! BTW, when will you be updating Styled Notes? I really like that blog as well.

    Your makeup bag is so CUTE. Where/how did you get it? I got a similar red one (which you also have) free with the Le Vernis cult colours promotion this summer, but somehow it got a weird unremovable stain on it.

  • So many lovely products in your makeup bag! I really like the lipsticks, the colours are so nice!

  • Kristina

    I always love your taste in cosmetics! In my bag: Givenchy Le Prisme powder compact (love the brush nested underneath!), Jo Malone Vitamin E Lip Cond, Dior Jelly lip pen in Copacabana (a fave!), La Mer lip balm, Guerlain lipstick in 264, Guerlain lip gloss 441, Chanel Glossimer in 87, YSL multiaction concealer and dental floss!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Just so much gorgeousness here! I've never been one to (intentionally) carry around too many lip products, yet a lip balm or two is always with me. Beyond that, I mostly don't touch up thru the day.

  • Besides the fact that you have the best collection of lippies (the shades are to die for!), your photos are so pretty, too.
