MAKEUP Essentials: WHAT TO CARRY AROUND?

Just like many other girls, I carry around with me way too much stuff!

However, I managed to narrow down the list of my everyday makeup essentials which made my life so much easier! (and made my bag lighter too haha)

So here are 5 items that I always have in my bag with me and u14647290se religiously: 

1. SONIA KASHUK Hand Cream in Pink Innocencia.

Hand cream is an absolute must for me – cannot stand having dry hands! This SONIA KASHUK cream has been my favorite hand cream for quite a while now. Softens skin really nicely. I chose this specific one (out of 4 available) because of the scent, which is absolutely amazing!

2. RIMMEL Stay Matte Pressed Powder 004 Sandstorm.

Shine control is crucial for me!

I want my face to be matte in the right places and to shine in the right places too)))  I keep this pressed powder with me to touch up from time to time throughout the day.

It does its job perfectly, a little goes a long way and the color shade is just amazing!

3.  ChapStick. 172544229443116006UDpHnyezc

Oldie but a goodie) This is still my favorite lip balm EVER! And since I have tried the one in mint, i keep on buying only this one.

4. MAYBELLINE ColorSensational Lipstick 732 Brazen Beige.

732

This is my Holy Grail Lipstick ❤  Absolutely in love with its creamy formula!  Use it (for the most time) daily and always have it with me to touch up.

And yeah, it goes great with ANY makeup look, i.e. nude simple daily look or very dramatic heavy eye makeup! Just whatever you feel like wearing)

5. Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Eau de Parfum.yves-saint-laurent-parisienne-eau-de-parfum-spray-90ml

My favorite perfume these days! Fresh and tempting at the same time. I have a travel size (0.25 fl.oz.) in my bag. A true lady always smells elegant throughout the day!

REVIEW: BOURJOIS Volume Glamour Push Up MASCARA

Bourjois_Volume_Glamour_Push_Up_Mascara___Black_34g_1413444239I just recently discovered the BOURJOIS Volume Glamour Push Up Mascara. Saying that I am just pleased means saying nothing! Basically, for now this is my holy grail mascara, and here’s why:

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

PROs: 

  • Makes eyelashes thick and full in just one coat – a little goes a long way!
  • Does not smudge under eyes even without setting my under eye area with a powder
  • The uplifting brush coats lash by lash, separating them, giving volume and length.
  • Takes off easily, not leaving any dark circles around eyes, does not irritate eyes as well

CONs:

  • The only CON for me would be its scent, but it’s not a big deal for me)

TOP 3 NUDE LIPSTICKS!

732

1. MAYBELLINE ColorSensational – 732 Brazen Beige

This one is my current favorite! Its creamy formula helps it to just glide on lips and moisturize them throughout the whole time of wearing. For a drugstore product, this is an amazing lipstick and a perfect nude color for my skin tone!

2. MAC Cremesheen Lipstick – Pure Zen

MAC lipsticks formula is great like nothing else! This one suits best for a darker skin tones than mine. Very creamy, feels perfect on lips, makes them feel super soft.

3. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte – 001 Nude Beige 

A high end version of a perfect nude lipstick for my skin tone! Have had this one for months, not using it on a daily basis though! That’s the only reason it’s not # 1 in my list. BTW, totally worth the splurge!
