What's In My Makeup Bag

Although I don't have a crazy beauty routine, I thought it would be fun to share what I keep in my makeup bag. I'm the kind of girl that when I find a product I like, I stick to it...usually until it's discontinued or I happen to try something new that I love even more. Here's what I'm currently using.
1: Loreal Paris Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara, 2: Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen, 3: Revlon Vixen Polish, 4: Elf Blush in Fushia Fusion, 5: Victoria's Secret Noir Tease, 6: Cherry ChapStick, 7: Loreal Paris Colour Riche Balm in Plush Plum, 8: Maybelline Lipstick in Red Revival,  9: Victoria's Secret Eyeshadow
I first tried this Telescopic mascara about 3 months ago...now it's my favorite thanks to Carli from the Beauty Bybel. Seriously this girl has some of my favorite makeup tutorials. 
Eyeliner is about the only thing I bounce around on. I've tried everything from liquid to pencil but I'm currently using Revlon Colorstay liquid eye pen. I usually go for a winged look when doing my eyes and this is great for making bold lines.
This lip balm has just enough of a tint for an everyday natural kind of look. This is what I wear most of the time to work...every now and then I'll use my red lipstick. I love wearing red lipstick and over the years I've tried so many always searching for the perfect red. This one by far has been my favorite. 
I like to keep my lips moisturized at all times. Chap stick is always on hand, I even keep an extra one in my car. I usually swipe this on for those lazy kind of days at home or whenever I don't feel like putting on makeup.

My usual makeup routine is: a bit of blush, winged eyeliner, 2 coats of mascara, and lip balm/lipstick. I play around with eyeshadow every now and then but I honestly hardly use it.

Do you have any great beauty finds I should try? Do tell.

  2. Great and fun post! I like seeing what other bloggers are using in their makeup bags. Your collection is so organized, haven't tried that mascara as yet, but now eager to. Love the two red lip shades, so bold and pretty.

  3. I'm a huge fan of highlighting powder on my cheek bones- it makes me look dewy fresh :)

  4. If I like a product, I usually stick to it also. But I think I might try that Revlon Colorstay eyeliner and that Maybelline lipstick!

    Lately, I've been in LOVE with Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains! They go on like a balm with lots of color and then turn into a stain that stays put all day.

  8. Oooh, I love this post! :) Most of my makeup comprises of drugstore finds as well. I've been eyeing Maybelline's new lipsticks/creams because of the pretty new packaging, so I'm happy to hear that it's of quality!

  9. Have you tried BB cream? It's supposed to be a moisturizer with coverage, on top of all the added benefits of vitamins, anti-ageing, etc. It's pretty amazing!
