What's In My Makeup Bag?

13 April 2016

To be honest, I've been putting off writing a blog post for the past couple of days. And it's not even because of blogger's block or anything – I was just really lazy. I'd spend the nights telling myself, "Tomorrow, is gonna be a productive day. You're going to shoot then edit then write and ba-baaam: new blog post!" but then I'd wake up in the mornings feeling really tired and grumpy that I just wanted to be in bed all day (while watching my current favourite K-drama of course hehe).

Today was obviously not like that because here's a new blog post. Finally. And I'm showing you guys what's basically in my very kikay makeup bag. Now, I normally don't wear too much makeup everyday. Actually, I don't wear makeup at all on most days. But when I do, I find it very convenient to just whip out a cute little bag that carries my go-to makeup products. 
If you want a rundown, read on.

 L'Oréal Paris True Match Skin Idealizing BB Cream (SPF 35 PA +++) in G2 Gold 
I only use this product in the day because it has SPF. And as a base, it provides light to medium coverage depending on how much I use. So I guess it's buildable? That's what beauty gurus always say, hahaha. It's also light, very easy to apply, and it doesn't feel cakey at all in any way. The smell kinda resembles that of a certain sun block I used as a kid, so I don't mind. Though its on the pricey range, I think I'd get myself another one after I finish this.

 Marionnaud Retractable Powder Brush 
This brush is extremely versatile. Its retractable feature allows it to be of different shapes and sizes as adjusted. And I actually use it for blush as well. 

 Maybelline New York Fit Me! Powder in 320 Honey Beige 
My aunt got this powder for me from the UK, and it's actually my holy grail. Unfortunately, I don't think it's available here in the Philippines. That is why I kinda don't want to finish it just yet, so I think I'm gonna try to find a good substitute somewhere at least for now. 

 Nichido Foundation Stick in Beige 
For the longest time, I used this as a concealer because I wasn't aware of what it actually was. But even after finding that out, I went on still using it as a concealer because it works okay for me. Although, I dare say, it doesn't last very long, so I tend to just reapply it throughout the day.

 Grip Germany Eyelash Curler 
I like this curler because it's really cheap (for only PHP 95.00), yet it does the job. I've been using this for years already, and I only have to change the rubber thing on it, which is sold separately almost everywhere.

 The Face Shop Love Me:Ex Design My Brows in 03 Black Brown 
My sister actually introduced me to this eyebrow pencil, and I'm very glad she did. This product is super convenient to use because one of its ends is a pencil and the other end is a spoolie brush. Hence, I don't have to carry anymore eyebrow products with me other than this on a casual + chill  day. A lot of people actually use this (even makeup artists), so I guess that's a plus?

 New York Color Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara in 842 Extreme Black 
The thing that I like the most about this product is that it's not too harsh on my lashes, and it doesn't smudge at all. I also like how the packaging is so thin, making it easy to carry around in my purse.

 Aido Travel Kit in Color no. 2 
Since I rarely ever wear eyeshadow, I just opted to get this cheap palette from Aido. I can't really say much about it just yet except that (and if you must know) the two shades on either side are blushers.


 Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush in 001 Petal 
I really love this blush because it really just creates a natural flush on my cheeks, and the packaging (which also comes with a small black sleeve thing) looks incredibly sleek and stylish.

 Rouge Dior Nude Lipstick in 319 Trench 
 I'm not a fan of lipsticks, but I like nude shades so this is good for me.  

 Etude House Dear Darling Tint in 02 Real Red 
This hardly ever stays in my makeup bag just because I carry it with my actual purse everywhere. It's my go-to cheek and lip tint. I've got so much love for this product – it's amazing!

That is everything. I hope you guys liked this because I'm planning on doing a "What's In My Bag/Purse" soon hihi. Have a lovely day/night wherever you are, take care always, love lots!
