Inside My Makeup Bag

TGIF everyone! I hope you had a good week and have some down time to relax this weekend. I’m looking forward to meeting up with a few friends, a trip to Barneys and plan on taking lots of photos for upcoming reviews.

Inside my makeup bag this week (way too many lip products stuffed in here):

  1. Tory Burch Watercolor Botanical cosmetic bag (smaller sizes here and here)
  2. Chanel Le Volume de Chanel mini
  3. Diptyque 34 L’Eau du Trent-Quatre Eau de Toilette mini (full size here), seriously considering the full size but I already have 3 other perfumes on my wish list
  4. Guerlain Healthy Glow Terracotta Bronzer (discontinued from holiday, review here)
  5. NARS Mini Blush Brush (from a GWP many years ago)
  6. Chanel Les Beiges No 2 in the darker shade for summer (review soon, original ones in 20, 30 and 40 here)
  7. NARS Angelika Lipgloss is a gorgeous pink color (P.S. Sephora has a super cute 100 beauty insider reward option of a mini NARS lipgloss, it was completely gone from all the stores near me but you can still find it online while it lasts)
  8. Aerin Rose Lip Balm in Pretty, a classic staple nude pink (review and swatches)
  9. MAC Viva Glam VI lipstick, my favorite darker rose brown color (wish they made this in lipglass form too, more VG swatches here)
  10. Caudalie Lip Conditioner from the Favorites Set (feature here)
  11. Edward Bess Defining Eyeliner in Deep Brown, my absolute favorite basic brown eyeliner staple (see my eye essentials here)
  12. Dior Diorshow Brow Styler in Universal Brown, this is one of three brow pencils I’ve been testing out, the super fine tip makes application easy and I like the packaging which is super convenient and easy to use
  13. YSL Kiss and Blush in 2 Rose Frivole, will be testing this more extensively this weekend for a review next week
  14. Edward Bess Deep Shine Lipgloss in Stolen Kiss (on sale right now until stock runs out at
  15. NARS 413 Blkr Illuminator is a lovely champagne highlighter that’s exclusive to NARS and NARS Boutiques (review here)
  16. Dior mini brush from one of the highlighter sets
  17. NARS Bronzer Brush in the old version, have any of you tried the New Version yet?
  18. Caudalie Hand Cream from the Favorites Set (review here)
  19. Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Tiny Pink 269 (lip swatched here)
  20. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy my no-brainer swipe and go lipstick
  21. Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Canvas (review here)
I need to start using smaller makeup bags so I don’t end up carrying around so much stuff. Things tend to pile up each day. What’s been in your makeup bag this past week?

    Love your springy TB makeup bag and your product selections! It's getting me inspired for what to wear to the spring/summer weddings I'm planning to attend!

      Ooh, glad to have helped with some inspiration!

    Lovely picks, we have many favourites in common. This week my makeup bag contained Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer in no 5, Chanel no 2 multicolour Les Beiges powder, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, Bobbi Brown blush in Pink Coral, Dior Fluid stick in Wonderland, Hourglass gloss in Origami, Bobbi Brown eyeshadow stick in Golden Bronze and gel liner in Sapphire….and I've just found a rogue Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush in there too…LOL!

      Love your picks! I have a sample card of Dior Addicts with wonderland, I'm going to be brave and try it this week. It's on the bright side for me but looks so pretty.

    Ah I wish I had all those luxury products in my makeup bag, I've been wanting to try that kiss and blush shade it looks so pretty x

    Hooray for smaller makeup bags! I'm actually carrying around 2 right now….borderline ridiculous! I love that TB makeup bag. Happy Friday! – Zeynep

      2 makeup bags? I LOVE IT!

  5. May 16, 2014 / 7:54 pm

    Im so surprised by how much stuff that bag holds. I like to carry multiple lippies too, but sometimes I find that I put on a different colour after lunch than what I started with in the morning!

      The Tory Burch makeup bags are actually pretty big. They measure about 3 inches deep so there's plenty of room for palettes and compacts 🙂

    Omg, the bag is too pretty!

    Hi Sabrina,

    I love your garden themed pouch! I've been crushing on it from afar — it's nice to see what it looks like up close!

  8. May 16, 2014 / 10:19 pm

    Wow!!! Yopu def have great products in your bag. Love that bag. I also like the idea that you made sure that your cosmetics are all handy so you could bring them anytime and anywhere.

  9. May 16, 2014 / 11:17 pm

    Love the bag!

  10. May 16, 2014 / 11:35 pm

    I am loving that bag! The print is so cute!


  11. May 17, 2014 / 1:04 am

    The makeup bag is so cute!!

  12. May 17, 2014 / 1:51 am

    Your makeup bag is so cute! I'm so interested in the Dior Addict Fluid Stick, the packaging is amazing.

  13. May 17, 2014 / 10:32 pm

    LOve your makeup bag & so many lovely products inside. That Guerlain bronzer is stunning & so to is the YSL Kiss and Blush in 2 Rose Frivole …. beautiful colour

  14. May 18, 2014 / 12:59 am

    Wow, that makeup bag sure holds a lot! I usually like to pack light but there are times when I need to bring along more makeup items and I don't have any cute large makeup bag to use! Lol. Maybe this post will finally nudge me to go get one. The bag looks so cute and sophisticated 🙂

    Btw, the color of the 100 beauty insider reward NARS lipgloss is Orgasm. I've just got mine from a order.

    Dear Sabrina,
    Firstly, Happy Birthday (saw it on your IG) and it seems you are having a great weekend celebration so far! Cheers!

    Secondly, gorgeous makeup bag print and lastly, do you carry that in your purse daily? I ask because I am already carrying a lot for work and the only makeup I carry is a lip balm (which I never use after I have started my workday, unless I am traveling somewhere frigid and my lips are super dry) and a lipstick (which I rarely use to touch up – maybe three times this past year for a post-work event) — I am no minimalist when it comes to makeup application and I do wear a lot of "long wear"/"waterproof" makeup…but I was kind of stunned at the quantity of makeup you have in your bag when you have such gorgeous skin and don't seem fussy about constant touch-ups/reapplications throughout the day. Or, is this just what you carry when you travel?

    Confused yet mesmerized,
    Ava 🙂

      Hi Ava, I do tend to carry a lot of makeup with me in my purse. It's not always THIS much. I tend to throw in things each day as the week carries on it gets loaded. You're lucky you don't have to worry about touch ups. I usually don't fuss with my makeup mid-day but I like to have things with me just in case especially if I'm meeting friends or family for dinner after work and don't have time to go home.

      Contents are constantly changing (almost daily). This is just what I had this past week.

      Hope this helps clarify!

      PS thanks for the compliment on gorgeous skin. It's far from gorgeous!

    Just wanted to let you know, they DO offer VG as a lipglass as well! 🙂

    • May 19, 2014 / 1:35 am

      Oh you're right, I actually have that one. I got the numbers confused with VG4 🙂 the one featured above is VG6 though.

    This past week I had mac mineralize skin finish, nars lipgloss in dolce vita, calvin klein mascara, my travalo filled with Lolita Lempicka, cargo bronzer and nars blush in mounia in my make-up bag.
