What is in my makeup bag?

This is a good question, because I don’t even know what’s in my makeup bag. At the start of every season my makeup bag looks refined, organized and dare I even say cute? This is not the beginning of fall and half way through the fall my makeup bag is looking rather… cluttered.  So brace yourself this is what is in my makeup bag.

Flower Lipstick Petal to the Metal
I was excited to see this Drew Barrymore's new Flower makeup line in Canada, so I decided "what the heck let’s try a lip product".  My first impression is it feels nice on the lips but it starts to look patchy when it wears off. Also, the lid keeps popping off which I hate because I fear it might ruin my purse.
We will see with this one but we are off on a bad start.

Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Enchantment
I picked this up last week too and although it’s new and I don’t want to jump the gun but it’s a great lip liner. I love mechanical lip liners there easy and travel friendly. I want to try some more colors from this range because while I love this raspberry color but I am craving something a little lighter.

Essie Good to Go Topcoat
Not really sure how this ended up in my makeup bag but it’s a great top coat. Mine happens to be slightly pink because I have been wearing red and burgundy polishes constantly.

La Vanilla Pure Vanilla Roller Ball
This is empty and I have been totally lugging this around with the intention to replace it.

Guerlain Rose Pompon
I am almost finished this lipstick and let face it, it’s had better days. Probably my favorite lipstick of all time, I already have back up ready to go!
If you’re into sheer, rosy- plum colors this one has my stamp of approval.

Bare Minerals Dare Devil
I got this in a Bare Minerals makeup set and am in love. This is like a pinkier lip gloss version of Guerlain Rose Pompon and it even has a minty tingle. And we all know how much I love a little tingle! I love this lip gloss but the packaging looks abused which is crazy considering I’ve only had it for a month.

Chanel Rouge Allure Extract De Gloss in Merveille
Another rosy plum lip product! In comparison to the two above Merveille is more plum then rose. It’s ever so slightly vampy, but still very wearable. Really pretty, excellent color payoff and super long wearing but like all good things this was a limited edition product!

Chanel Glossimer in 176
This blackish red lip gloss is actually pretty darn pigmented.  Personally I find really pigmented glossimers hard to wear because they always end up all over my face. In effort to finish this before it goes off, I been adding just a touch to the lips and wearing it like a sheer wash of color. With that being said because I use so little I feel like I am never going to finish this. 

Shiseido Automatic Lip Crayon
This pinky red lip liner is surprisingly hydrating and sheer. I did a really bold lip look a few weeks ago and I found this to be a perfect touch up tool that got me though the night. I don't reach for this often so back into my collection it will go.

If you haven’t noticed there is a ton of crap in my makeup bag….

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Antigone
Rouge Coco Shines happen to be one of my favorite lipstick formulas ever. Antigone is a sheer strawberry red and although it’s new I think we are going to have a great future together.

Fresh Sugar Berry Lip Balm
Last lip product but probably the one I reach for the most. This color adds the perfect sheer wash of berry, it’s so very pretty! The best part about Fresh lip balms is there super hydrating and literally feel like a lip balm.

Eye Cream Sample
I love keeping eye cream samples in my makeup bag they are great if you need a pick me up after work.
The one I have now is a Re Vive sample, truth be told I have not tried this yet so I can’t contest to its performance.

Perfume Samples
Right now I am carrying an assortment of Jo Malone and one random perfume sample. Adding to the random things I carry with me half of these are empty and need to be thrown out.  I must add Jo Malone’s Blush Peony and Suede is beautiful.

Not in my beauty bag but still beauty…..
Chanel Compact
This compact I use for the mirror. I got “crafty” one day and took out the old Chanel blush this was holding. Old blush is an understatement this ancient blush was 10 years old.

Selection of moisturizers
This includes my new favorite hand cream Reve De Miel, a body lotion by L'Occitane and Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour cream.  The L’Occitane body lotion is a little overkill but it smells beautiful I just can’t get enough of its vanilla floral scent.

Darn I really carry a ton of crap with me on a daily bases. 
I also think I have a slight lipstick problem… which I’m sure many of you guys to do.
