What’s in my makeup bag: December


Carrying around about seven lip balms in your bag, is totally normal, right?

Yup. That’s my life now. Here’s what I’ve been loving for my dry AF lips (other than this mask I already talked about): Chanel Coco Rouge Baume (fave!), Dior Dior Addict Lip GlowKaplan MD Lip 20 Mask* (in combo with their lip balm), It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Balm* and Jouer Lip Topper in Skinny Dip. No lipstick. Wearing lipstick right now, is completely out of the question for me, which sucks, guys. My lips get way too dry during the day since I started Absorica so it’s been nothing but lip balms with a touch of Skinny Dip (which actually wears very comfortably).


The Body Shop Eye Colour Stick in Gold* – I just got this in the mail last week and so far, I’m loving it. It’s very similar to Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Stick in Honey Bunny. I’m also loving their Down to Earth palette in Gold* and, I’ve rediscovered an old favorite- Tartelette in Bloom. Tartelette in Bloom is probably in the top five of my favorite eyeshadow palettes. It’s a beautiful palette.


Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup* is targeted toward oily/combo skin and while my skin is as dry as paper at the moment, I actually really dig this foundation, even now. I like to mix it with my moisturizer for a very light coverage and it looks beautiful, actually adding a bit of hydration to my skin. Another thing that I really like is that this shade actually matches my skin tone perfectly (03 Silk Bare). IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream* is also an all-time favorite that gives great coverage (not that I need it anymore, yay!) and it also helps with concealing some redness I’m experiencing. Also loving: Clarins True Radiance in Nude, which just a few months ago was a bit too “glowy” for my liking. Let  me tell you… now that my skin is so dry, I actually do enjoy a good glow. :) Also, not having to use a mattifying powder is a very strange feeling. Not that I’m complaining though!
