What's in my makeup bag?


The real question should be what's NOT in my makeup bag.

Haha! I quite literally carry all my everyday makeup in this bag. It's just a large cute floral patterned bag from Primark. It stays on top of my Ikea nine drawers and holds all my everyday makeup. It's so much easier to reach for the bag instead of rooting through my drawers searching for everything. 

When I go to University (or anywhere really), I just toss it into the bottom of whatever bag I'm using at the time. It's especially convenient when I'm out all day and need to do retouches.

The full list (as of yesterday):



Sample sized Benefit Porefessional
Rimmel  Match Perfection Foundation #010 Light Porcelain
Benefit Boi-ing Concealer #01 Light
BareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder #001 Transparent
Makeup Revolution Blushing Hearts #Blushing Heart
Maybelline Colour Tattoo #65 Pink Gold
Makeup Revolution Awesome Lash 
Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Eyeliner
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss #150 Peach Petal
Makeup Revolution Amazing Sheer Lipgloss HushHush
Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick #107
MaxFactor Colour Riche Lipstick #833 Rosewood

Nivea Lip Butter Raspberry Rose 
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
MAC Fix+



And now I truly realise how much I carry daily!! I do rotate it each week, but still that's a lot! I'm shocked it all fits in the bag with room to spare. I usually carry hand cream, contact lenses and a big powder brush in it as well.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who carries this much? It just seems to multiply on it's own! I'd love to hear what everyone else carries (and if it's as bad as mine).

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
