What's In My Makeup Bag???

So, I figured I should do a post on this since uh...makeup and beauty products is kinda my thanggg here.  Here's everything I have in my everyday makeup bag, which also means I use these products everyday too!  I also have a train case that's filled to the brim...but I'll save that for another day.

First and foremost is my Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Bisque.  Even if I don't feel like wearing too much makeup I wear this every. single. day.  It gives me minimal coverage, but on most days that's all I need! Anyway, no matter what this is my number one, can't live without, staple in my makeup bag.  I love love love my NARS Laguna Bronzer.  This is my favorite bronzer and I usually wear bronzer everyday, so duh it's gonna be in my bag!

I use two concealers.  First is the Laura Mercier Secret Concealer in #2.  I did a post on it not too long ago, you can read it here.  This is formulated for the eye area, so that's the only area I use it on.  My next concealer is Benefit's Erase Paste...and erase paste it issssss.  This stuff works wonders to cover up any blemishes, and just like the Secret Concealer a little goes a long way.  I've had this pot for awhile and it's only half way done.

Mascara is probably my second most important staple.  Typically I use Maybelline Falsies, but I got this mini Benefit Bad Gal Lash, I mentioned it in my Sephora haul.  Once I use this up I'll get another Falsies.

 For a little color I have my NARS Multiple in Orgasm, it gives my cheeks a nice natural color, with a hint of shimmer, perfect for an everyday look.  Since I just recently bought NARS Multiple in Copacabana I've been carrying that around with me too.

My Burt's Bees chapstick is super important.  I have so many of these laying around everywhere, but I always make sure I have one in my makeup bag.  I did a review on this product, so read it here!  The lip gloss I've been carrying around (although I just ran out of it this past weekend) is NARS Turkish Delight, described as a pink sorbet.  This is Kim Kardashian's favorite lip gloss,and I couldn't agree more with her!

Lastly, I carry three brushes.  The first is a big bronzer brush from Sephora.  The next is a Mac brush that I use for the NARS Multiple's since their a creamy base.  And, the last brush is an Armani concealer/ foundation brush that I use to apply the Erase Paste and Secret Concealer.  

You can buy all of these products at Sephora, with the exception of the Burt's Bees chapstick which you can get in any drugstore!


  1. Great post, I love being nosy and seeing what people have in their makeup bags :P What's the nars bronzer like? I've always wanted to try it.


  2. Amazing blog - I found you on a discussion board on IFB! What a fabulous post! Thanks for sharing your makeup and reviewing them!

  5. I'm always curious about these 'What's in my makeup bag?' posts and yours was really good. :) I love Laura Mercier and Burts Bees!

  6. I also use Turkish Delight, Love it!! Another one I have been hooked on lately is Smashbox "POP" As far as benefit's erase paste, does it settle in your fine line's under your eyes, I was thinking about trying it but it looks super thick like it creases?
