What’s Currently in My Makeup Bag

currentmakeupbagI take this bright pink striped bag with me everyday when I go to work, adding in whatever products or items I think I’ll want during the workday.  It changes everyday, but this is what I took to work with me most recently.

Hurraw! Lip Balm in Chai Spice – I must apply lip balm around a dozen times a day.  I think part of that is habit, part of it is I love the smell, and the other part is that I cannot stand for my lips to be dry.  This scent is so nice for fall.

Beauty Without Cruelty Super Cover Cream Concealer in Fair – This pencil concealer is perfect for touch-ups at work.  It’s not the concealer I use when I apply makeup in the morning, but its so convenient to keep this in my bag for when I’m out of the house.

Oil Blotting Papers (similar) – I always keep these on hand.  I don’t use them as much as I used to, primarily because my skin seems drier this past year.  But these are perfect if I have excess oil or shine on my T-zone.

Comb, Hair Tie, Nail File – These are un-fancy for sure, but I use the comb every day to smooth out my hair.  And nobody wants to get caught with a snagged fingernail and no file.

Gemstone Organic Ylang Ylang Gem Hydrosol – When I first heard of this brand, I jumped over to their website to see their products.  Adorable packaging, fascinating gem information, and wonderful ingredients.  This was my first purchase.  I love that there are little gems actually in the bottom of the hydrosol bottle.  Ylang Ylang is used as an anti-depressant in aromatherapy.  I’ve been using this as a pick-me-up during the workday.  I’ve ordered one of their crèmes and can’t wait to try it out.

Pacifica Devocean Natural Lipstick in XOX – I received this in my Petit Vour box – and I love it!  I’m more of a skincare girl than makeup (though I do love makeup) so I’m glad I received this because otherwise I wouldn’t have bought it.  It smells like delicious coconuts, is hydrating, and the color is a beautiful everyday pink.

Travel Journal (similar) – Ever since I bought this little journal, I’ve been taking it with me in my bag everyday.  I have been struggling with some anxiety, and I also deal with S.A.D. so I’ve found this journal so comforting and soothing when I feel stressed, anxious, or just a bit down.  I’ve been filling the pages with quotes that inspire and comfort me.  I especially like to re-read the quotes that help me manage my anxiety.

Lotus Wei Inner Peace Flower Elixir – Since I purchased this a couple of weeks ago, I’ve put five drops of this sweet flower elixir under my tongue a few times a day, everyday .  It has an immediate and tangible calming effect on me.  Instantly, I feel more relaxed and less anxious.  I won’t leave the house without it now!

What items/products do you take with you when you leave the house for the day?

    I love Hurraw! Also, the Beauty Without Cruelty Super Cover Cream Concealer recently caught my eye as I’ve been on the market for a new concealer. How is the coverage and longevity?

      The coverage is really good for the BWC concealer. The longevity is pretty decent, although I always keep it in my makeup bag in case I want to do a touch up mid-day.
