So um… Yeah… This is what I have in the beauty bag that resides in my handbag today. Can you tell that I like lipsticks? I essentially store my favourite work appropriate lipsticks in my handbag. I apply lipstick before leaving the house by taking my pick from here.
I’ll briefly go through each of the items in my beauty bag according to their numbered sections.
1. Sanitizing hand gels
❣ Gel de manos con alcohol from Deliplus — A very watery consistency but evaporates quickly and doesn’t leave a tacky feel.
❣ Care Complete Aloe Vera Refreshing Hand Gel — A thick gel with a nice light scent that also evaporates quickly and doesn’t leave a tacky feel.
2. My Summer Remedies
❣ DHC Oil blotting paper (100 pack) — These come in a cute packaging and do the job. I blot my face before applying powder.
❣ Physician’s Formula Mineral Airbrushing pressed powder SPF 30 — I heavily apply this for SPF and top it up every few hours to keep my face protected. It’s translucent and does the job. It comes with a mirror and a tiny brush.
❣ MonuSpa Rosewood Reviving Mist — I got this in a Glossybox and I spray my face after applying the powder to not look powdery. I like that this is a sample size.
3. Blister prevention and Care
❣ Compeed Blister plasters — I discovered these recently and they’ve changed my life. I’ll probably write a full post about them soon because they’re that good. They keep blisters well protected and they heal faster. I recently started carrying these around with me just in case.
❣ Boots Anti-Blister stick — This is a stick that you rub on your skin in places where you think that your shoes might rub. It’s also there just in case haha.
4. A small Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier perfume
5. A compact mirror from Pylones, a shop that I have an obsession with.
6. Some lip products (left to right)
❣ Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet No. 34 La Raffinée — Sophisticated packaging and a my lips but better colour
❣ Mac Bare Again — A glossy nude
❣ Mac Brave — Another my lips but better colour
❣ NYX Tea Rose — A very wearable pink shade
❣ Infinita Deliplus No. 5 — A long wearing, matte raspberry shade.
7. More lip products (left to right)
❣ Sephora Cream Lip Stains in Peach Tarte, Marvellous Mauve and Pink Souffle. I adore these and I might swatch all my Sephora Cream Lip Stains soon.
❣ Revlon Colorstay Balm Stain in Honey Douce
❣ Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Peony — A great everyday colour and applies really nicely. These Too Faced Melted lipsticks are my favourite long-wearing glosses. I’m very impressed with them since when they wear (and after eating) they remain vibrant and glossy but they don’t feel sticky on the lips. I never knew such products existed.
8. Pencil Products
❣ NYX 831 Mauve Lip Pencil
❣ Essence Lip Pencils in 15 Honey Berry and 14 Femme — I purchase almost the whole range of the Essence lip pencils recently and I’m in love with them. They’re amazing.
❣ Mac Feline eye pencil

So, I might need to purge my beauty bag from lipsticks. But um… I need them all!
