Here’s what was in my makeup bag for July. It’s a fair bit more than I usually carry, but that’s because I packed it with several products for my trip and then never downsized when I got home. Needless to say, it was kind of a bitch to carry around. Definitely switching to a smaller bag for August! ^_^
Here are my favorites from my bag this month…
L’Oreal Color Riche Balm in Pink Satin These balms go on so smoothly and are super hydrating and pretty. This is the perfect bubblegum/baby pink – perfect for every day.
NYX Butter Gloss in Strawberry Parfait A lovely pink/berry colored gloss. This was great for when I wanted a stronger wash of color on my lips. I’ve talked about the glosses probably to the point of annoyance, but they’re seriously that good. Smooth, creamy, glossy, and they smell like cake!
Benefit’s The POREfessional Primer This primer is fantastic. It is non-greasy and goes on smooth, blurs out my pores, and helps my makeup stay in place all day. I also love that it has a very light, nice smell to it. I’ve used other primers that had a bit of a mineral or medicinal smell to them. Ick.
Clinique Pop Blush in Ginger Pop I love this blush! The consistency is so cool, like a mix between a powder and a mousse, and it blends beautifully. The color kind of reminds me of NARS Orgasm, but without all of the glitter. Really pretty for this season, especially paired with some bronzer.
L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara Have I mentioned this mascara before? I have? Well, just let me repeat myself…I LOVE THIS MASCARA! Seriously, it is the best drugstore mascara I’ve ever used. The way the brush bends when I apply it…it’s like it’s moving to coat each lash perfectly. I also love that the tip of the brush is smaller so I’m able to get even the little lashes in the corners of my eyes.
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Clear Oh my goodness, this stuff has seriously changed my eyebrow game. Ever since I started using it, I’ve been getting so many compliments on my brows. Even my grandma noticed! ^_^
NARS Creamy Concealer in Chantilly This is one of my absolute favorite makeup products that I own. Like, out of every beauty item I’ve ever bought ever, this is definitely in the top 5. It is full coverage and is the only thing I’ve ever used that completely covers up my dark under eye circles. On days where my skin doesn’t look too bad, I don’t even need foundation. Instead, I just use some of this concealer to even up my skin tone and I’m good to go.
I really hope y’all love this new feature. What are you carrying around in your makeup bag right now? xo, Mandy
