Whats In My Bag | Weekend Edition

 Yay! My laptop is fixed which means I am back on the blogging scene finally. Over the bank holiday weekend I visited my boyfriend and whilst I was packing I thought it would be a good idea to do my first little Whats In My Bag post. 


Foundation: Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc.

I actually am having a bit of a love hate relationship with this at the moment. I find it has a good lasting power but its starting to look 'cakey' on my skin, especially my forehead and I feel the colour is making me look so washed out. I think I'll re-go to SpaceNK to see what a different lady would match me up with. 

Concealer: Collection in Light 2.  

I have learnt a little goes a long way with this and it easily works for both my blemishes and under eye. 

Powder: Vichy Dermablend Translucent Powder

I for one am not a powder person, my skin is dry enough and I feel that my face looks quite flat with it on. I do use some just under my eyes though to keep the concealer for budging! 

Contour/Blush/Highlight: Nars Crimes of Passion palette and High Beam

This has both Laguna and Deep Throat which is so handy as it saves me from taking both separately! I then top with High Beam for a quick glow. 


Brows: Brow Zing and Gimme Brow.

God knows what I used before I had these two ha. I am starting to love the wax in the Brow Zing more than the powder at the moment but it just so small and perfect to carry around. In addition I took my Gimme Brow (thank god because I accidentally forgot my spollie) to neaten them that little bit more.

Mascara: Extreme Dimension Mac

 Hm, I received Mac's Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash mascara so thought I would take it along to test a little bit more. It's not the best but it comes off easily unlike my Benefit They're Real.

Eye Shadow: Nars Crimes of Passion palette

This has 3 great shades that work wonders together. I use the Jezebel (cream shade) all over then Naiade (brown) in the crease.  

Finishing Touches

Perfume: Laugh with me Lee Lee by Benefit

Sometimes I really dislike taking my expensive perfumes away so usually end up taking this. It is the only scent I like from their range and seems to last for ages on my clothes! 

Lipstick: L'Oreal Color Riche Tender Rose

I loveee this lipstick. I take it everywhere and its so easily to apply on the go! Its a very girly pink for sure but it just adds something to my look and makes me feel confident when I wear it. Well done L'Oreal!! 

P.s I use a Ted Baker makeup bag which seems to fit everything I need perfectly, including all my brushes


  1. This is a lovely collection of products. I especially love the look of the Nars Crimes of Passion Palette as it seems like it's so travel friendly x

    Beauty with charm

  2. Thank youuu! It really is :) xx

  3. i really want to try nars sheer glow, but there are so many mixed reviews which put me off! the nars palette must be so handy to have, i find taking individual cheek products in my make up bag takes up so much room! xx

  4. I do find I go back to it a lot so there is something there (: I think it's one of those you should just try cause you may fall in love with it! xxxx
