What’s in my make-up bag?

15 Nov



This is what I carry with me everyday.

Starting from top and then left to right:

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in Medium.  It’s a good powder, does it’s job.  Keeps me from looking too oily 🙂

Sephora Kabuki Brush.  It’s retractable and perfect for the purse.  I got this on clearance last year and it’s now gone from the site.  This is the closest I could find for the price.

Starlooks Kohl Liner in Obsidian.  Still available and only $9.00 USD.

Revlon ColorBurst in Fliratious Charmeuse $12.88 USD.  I love that this doubles as a lip balm. It’s so soft.

Hikari lipstick in Cabernet $13.00 USD

Sephora + Pantone Universe Collection lipstick in Pure Marsala.  This was a limited edition color last year and I went bonkers over it.  There are still items left over in that shade on Sephora’s website.  It’s a red brown shade, and I’m still a little obsessed with it.

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey $17 USD.  This is one of my favorite make-up items of all tume.

Blotterazi by beautyblender.  This was a Birchbox sample because I don’t know I would actually purchase this.  It’s $20.00 USD and it’s supposed to be an alternative to blotting.  But, if it really worked would I still be carrying around my MAC Mineralize?

Hope you lovelies enjoyed what is in my purse!

Thanks for reading!!



Dupe War 10: Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey vs Cover Girl Lipgloss in Daring

15 Oct

Black Honey has a cult like following since its release years ago.  It’s a great product!  Very universal, easy to apply, easy to wear.  I haven’t met a girl who didn’t look great in Black Honey

Almost Lipstick

Black Honey Clinique $15.00

But I think I found a pretty good dupe from Cover Girl

COVERGIRL LipSlicks Lipgloss

This is the Cover Girl Lipslicks Lipgloss line in Daring $5.99

See for yourself:

The Cover Girl version is slightly less pigmented on the initial application.  However, this doesn’t seem to be the problem when you run it over your lips a few times.

Check it:

Cover Girl’s Daring


Is there really a difference??? Other than in price?

If you are on a budget, and don’t want to shell out $15.00, save your wallet and go for the Cover Girl version.  You won’t be disappointed.

The Math:

Save yourself $10.00.  Buy more makeup.
