What's in my makeup bag

I have a lot of makeup. Obviously, I change things up when I'm in the mood or going out for a night on the town, but the following items are what I use most days.


This is my first tube of this foundation. I seriously love it. It goes on light, gives me full coverage, doesn't make my skin oily or shiny, and the color is perfect.


I have dark under eye circles, so I'm always looking for a great concealer. I think I've finally found my favorite combo. I put the Erase Paste on first then put a light layer of Boi-ing on top.


For years, I've been wearing mascara only on my top lashes. Recently, I've been pairing these two together. I put Lash Stiletto on first. I quickly put the Falsies on top before the first coat dries. The first coat lengthens and separates. The second coat thickens.


I never spend a lot of money on blushes or eye shadows. Both of these work perfectly for every day wear.

I got this bronzer for free with my last Sephora order. As soon as it's gone, I'll be buying more. I love love love the color and how smoothly it goes on. After this blogger raved about her love of Baby Lips, I ran out and bought some. Two days in and I'm a happy girl. I can't wait to buy several more in different colors.

I'm very happy with this affordable brush set I got around Christmastime.

I've been (slowly) working on a blog post just like this. I always have dark circles too. After reading Terri’s review and now yours I am definitely getting Erase Paste. I don’t wear mascara on my bottoms either because my darks circles just get darker! I love Baby Lips! Grape Vine is my favorite.

I'm obsessed with the baby lips too! I purchased just a basic clear color - I do a horrible job picking lipsticks and colors for myself. Hence why I I've been purchasing the same lip color from cover girl since I was in my 20's! I so need to find a great under eye dark circle concealer thank you for sharing!

GIRL! We are SO MUCH alike in the makeup World OMG! I saw that Still tinted moisturizer in Ulta, I thought about it, now I just might have to invest in it! ANY Maybelline mascara, my FAVORITE....the Falsies, it's BY FAR, my favorite! I've been looking for the Baby Lips ALL OVER. Everywhere I go, they are out of stock...oh POO! loved this post!

I have had pretty bad luck with foundations sticking around, so I've been wanting to try a primer. Thanks so much for this post!

I'm sad and pathetic. Most days, all I can manage is some mascara. Falsies, love it. If it's a really good day, I use some tinted moisturizer and some eye liner. But only if I want something from the husband and I need to look good to get it.

Wow. I am this close to running to Sephora and plunking down a bazillion dollars on makeup and skin care stuff. This was so fun to read...wanna try the cover up and tinted moisturizer. Thanks for coming to visit on my SITS day!

We have eerily a lot of the same exact products.. and I can't do mascara on my bottom lashes either! I just bought some Baby Lips in the fruit punch the other day and love it. I want to get the peach one, but they didn't have it. What does it look like on? The fruit punch one is a pretty pink, so I wondered just how "peach" that one was...

Peace Love Applesauce- Terri said...

Love me some Erase Paste!!
