As I was reaching into my bag for some chapstick, I realized that I’m more prepared for St. Partick’s Day than I thought. A lot of the items in my little pouch were green, gold or minty- I just had to snap a picture:
These are the things that (lately) I can’t leave the house without.
C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Balm Stick: http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/product/index.jsp?productId=22993546
This is seriously one of my favorite chapsticks- it’s smooth, mousturizing, and minty. It’s perfect for wintertime- but in the summer I find it goes on a bit thick. During winter, I’ll take all the moisture on the lips I can get.
Wet n Wild Mega Protein Mascara: http://wnwbeauty.com/product.php?cid=15&pid=89&subid=24
So far, I’m enjoying this mascara. To be completely honest, I hate brand new mascara- it seems to go on too thick for my fair/redheaded complexion, but once the tube gets “broken in” I’m sure I’ll love it. I haven’t really noticed if the proteins in this bottle have done anything to improve my eyelashes, but it seems to be staying on all day and is quite black.
Wet n Wild Coverall Pressed Powder in Light: http://wnwbeauty.com/product.php?cid=17&pid=929&subid=35
Apparently I’m on a Wet n Wild kick- but I do love their products! This powder is great for touching up under the eyes or around the t-zone throughout the day. Since it’s winter, I definitely moisturize before applying for a smooth finish. And, as you can tell from the picture, my pressed powder is very loved.
Essie “Good as Gold” nail polish: http://www.essie.com/Effects/mirror-metallics/good-as-gold.aspx
I’ve tried out lots of gold nail polishes- gold is one of my favorite colors so I am quite picky when it comes to shades of gold. Out of all the golds I found at the drugstore, this one has to be my favorite. It’s not see-through when you apply it, and is very shimmery and matches all of my gold jewelry- which is quite important.
Sonia Kashuk Twist Up Longwear Liner in Black Onyx: http://www.target.com/p/sonia-kashuk-twist-up-longwear-liner/-/A-14264328
This is one of the smoothest eye liners I’ve ever bought. You barely have to touch it to your skin and it just melts (in a good way, I promise) onto your skin in a beautiful line. I got it on clearance at Target, but it might become a regular in my collection. I also love that I don’t have to sharpen anything- it twists up with more product easily. It comes in different colors, and I might just have to try them out.
The makeup brush came in a brush set from Walgreens about a year ago- but I really like angled eyeshadow brushes for everything powdery.
And of course- Extra Spearmint Gum: delicious. And the gum itself is a bit of a neon green color which always makes for interesting gum bubbles.
What are some constants in your bags lately?
