what's in my cosmetic bag

September 10, 2014

All my make up products stuffed in one little cosmetic bag.  I bought this cosmetic bag over a year ago from Forever 21 for about $5.  The gold metallic triangles are starting to fade, and strings are starting to show, but what to expect from a $5 cosmetic bag.  Over the past year I've purchased a lot more make up products (especially eyebrows) so my cosmetic bag is getting a little crammed.  I've been trying to look for a designer cosmetic case but I haven't found anything I absolutely love.

If you know me, I am NOT a make up type of girl.  I cannot put on eyeshadow for the life of me, I don't know the difference between contouring and highlighting.  Yeah, I'm pretty much useless when it comes to make up.  However, I can't step out of my house without doing my brows.  BROWS ARE IMPORTANT! The most important in my opinion gals.

Products shown from left to right:
1. Stila waterproof liquid eye liner in intense black: One of my all time favorite eyeliners.  I've been using this for the past four or five years, and althought I don't wear eyeliner everyday it has never failed me.
2. e.l.f. studio eyebrow kit in medium: I use this to outline the shape I want my brows to be with the gel on the left side.  There is some powder on the right side but I don't use it because I don't know what to do with it honestly.
3. NYX eyebrow cake powder in taupe/ash: I use this to fill in my brows
4. L'oreal true match powder in W4: I just recently purchased this because I wanted some type of coverage on my face but like I said before I am a make up noob so I didn't want to try foundation.  My friend recommended this to me and I would say it does a pretty good job at hiding small imperfections.  I only apply this when I'm going to a special occasion or if my skin has red spots.  Overall, it makes my face look matte, soft, and more even.
5. Becca ever-matte poreless priming perfector: This is the most expensive product in my cosmetic bag.  It was about $36, if I remember correctly, from Sephora.  I bought this because my t-zone gets extremely oily throughout the day.  I went into Sephora asking for some type of product that would help control the oil on my face.  The first few times I used it, it worked well, my face stayed dry for most of the day.  Then after that, my face wasn't as oily as before but not as dry as the first few days.  It is extreme drying and will leave sensitive skin with signs of peeling.  Definitely not recommended for those with sensitive skin.
6. e.l.f. wet gloss lash & brow clear mascara: I bought this because when I was watching youtube tutorials on eyebrows, a youtuber used these brow mascaras so I decided to buy one from e.l.f since it's so inexpensive.  It's alright but it does brush up the hairs that tend to droop down.
7. Anastasia brow wiz in medium brown: Definitely recommend this product! However it runs out really fast. I use this to fill in my brows along with the NYX eyebrow powder.
8.e.l.f. essential eyelid primer in sheer: I also bought this after watching youtube videos.  I almost always forget to use this before drawing my eyebrows but when I do use it, it does hold the product for longer periods of time.
9. boscia green tea blotting linens: Oil paper is essential to those with oily skin, which is why I always have this in my cosmetic case.  I prefer boscia's over clean & clear's oil absorbing sheets.
10. Revlon super lustrous lipstick in certainly red 740: I love lipstick. However, I only ever really wear red lipstick.  I have several different brands of red lipsticks.  This Revlon one is definitely one of my favorites and it always brings a pop of color to my outfit and a sense of boldness.
11. ecotools large powder brush: I purchased this when I bought the L'oreal true match powder because I just needed a brush to apply the powder.  I know nothing about brushes, so this works well for me!
