This Oriflame makeup bag has been in the first drawer of my desk for about six months. The majority of the products have stayed the same, throughout that time. My desk is where I normally apply my makeup on a daily basis. The rest of my makeup is kept next to my bed in an IKEA organiser (Makeup Organisation post here). Since the rest of my makeup has some distance from my desk, that a lazy girl like me doesn't like, I keep a bag with my go-to makeup products for easy access. So today, I will be sharing with you what these products are and why I use them so often.
Starting from the products I apply on my face first, we have The Body Shop Vitamin E BB Cream*, which has been my choice for a base these past weeks. I prefer light and natural coverage, so I'd rather use a BB Cream instead of a Foundation. I think I'm going to post a full review of this next week. Having three concealers in my makeup bag is a little bit excessive, don't you think? The one I use mostly is the Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer in the first shade called Fair. I absolutely love this concealer and apparently a lot of others bloggers do too. Long-lasting, great coverage, blends well, what else could I want? The only negative about this is that I notice some minor creasing after a few hours of wear. The other concealer I have is the Mac Select Cover-Up in NW20, which I used before buying the Collection one. This is a tiny bit dark for me and is thinner than the other one. I don't use this very often, but when I do, I tend to mix it with the Collection concealer to get it to match my skin-tone. The last concealer in this bag, isn't really a concealer. The LR Deluxe Bright Highlighter in number one is a highlighting pen for the under-eye area. I never use this on it's own, instead I use it to reduce the under-eye blue hue that I have, whenever I feel like it. To be honest, I haven't used this in a while, but it's still in my go-to bag. After applying concealer I powder my skin and I have been using the LR Loose Powder for years and this product hasn't ran out. It's a good powder, but I'm bored of using it, I want to try others powders. Oh, and let's not forget my Aloe Vera Moisturising Lip Care.
Moving on to the eyes, I have a product that I have been using constantly ever since buying it. The Mac Bare Study Paint Pot. Whenever, I'm in a rush and I need something quick, easy and pretty for my eyes I use this cream eyeshadow. It instantly makes my eyes brighter and I love it. I think this deserves its own review. A very recent addition to my makeup bag is The Body Shop Colour Crush Eyeshadow in Caramel Flirt. Whenever I feel more adventurous I apply this shimmery light brown colour in my eye's crease for more definition. If I'm in a mood for eyeliner I tend to use the Gosh Velvet Touch Eye Liner in Funky Violet, which is a beautiful purple and purple makes my green eyes pop. The only tool I have in my bag are the eyelash curlers my sister gave me. This bag wouldn't be complete without mascara. Currently, I go for the Avon Super Shock Max Mascara in Black. There are no eyebrow products, because the shades I use are in a big palette.
I've got three cheek products in my bag. There is the LR Powder Rouge in number three, which is a bronzer and one of my favourite blushes. If I feel like wearing a more pink blush I use the LR Powder Rouge in number 1, but I rarely use it. Last cheek product is a brilliant one, the Mac Cream Colour Base in Pearl. It's my favourite highlighter, ever since buying it. Last category is all about lips. I keep a pink LR Lipliner in the shade Juicy Rose, which I've started using lately with the Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in the colour Apocaliptic. I absolutely love this lip product. It's long-lasting, not drying, a beautiful colour and it's amazing. My daily uni lipstick was the LR Colours Glossy Lipstick in number fifty-one, which is a beautiful pink, similar to the lipliner. To finish off this blog post I have to mention one of my favourite lipsticks. The Mac Lipstick in Costa Chic which I have a review here. It is a beautiful coral lipstick, great for summer.
