What's in My Bag?

I have a new section called What's in My Bag?

Ladies, we all have our essential pieces of makeup that we keep in our bags for emergencies. So today, I decided to share two of my favorite ones. I keep these two with me always.

If you're like me, you probably work at least 8 hrs a day (if not more) 5 days a week and getting ready for work can often be a downright chore. I know a lot of the time I have to get up super early because I do take forever to get ready. Each morning, I find myself tempted to just say forget it and go all nautraall. While that might work for a lot of people, if you're super pasty like me, you will probably go in looking tired. Not good. 

So here are two cosmetics that will help give you the natural look you want, with little effort, and an even shorter amount of time.

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer, Peony

$4.99 at

  • Nourishes & Moisturizes Lips With Vitamin E & Beeswax
  • Enriches With Sunflower & Coconut Oils
  • Invigorates With Peppermint Flavor
  • Shimmering Radiance Shade
  • 100% Natural
I love this lip shimmer! It's easy to apply, convenient when you're on-the-go, and the coloring is very natural. Plus it's minty. 

I use this one pretty much everyday. I'm not big on lipstick for every day use, and although I love lip gloss it always seems to come off me. But this lip shimmer is a happy median. The color is deep enough to make it look like lipstick, but light enough that you can easily wipe it off and it doesn't leave your lips all sticky. If you're an on-the-go type of person like me then I would definitely pick this lip shimmer up. I love the Peony color, but they have several other colors that include:

 Fig, Radiance, Caramel, Champagne, and Guava.

I purchased this one at Target for $9.99, but I know they're all over the place now.

Blush/Bronzer Duo

$24.00 on
ITEM # 1479922 SIZE 0.17 oz
COLOR Orgasm/ Laguna Mini
I love this blush/bronzer duo. It's the perfect colors for summer because it gives you that sun-kissed look.

This is one of my favorites because the color actually lasts on me (I have oily skin) and it comes in a compact case, so it's easy to just throw in your wristlet wallet or purse.

It is a tad expensive, but it's definitely worth the mulla. Trust me.

My reviews are my honest opinion. I am in no way paid for my thoughts. Each book I review is either a review copy (ARC) given to me by the publisher or author or a copy I've purchased on my own.
