makeup bag essentials

I’m sort of a makeup bag hoarder.

The easiest way to get me to buy something is to offer a free makeup bag. Then I’m sold (Clinique, I’m looking at you). 

My excuse is that they always come in handy, whether for travel, organization, gift-giving… In fact, I always keep a makeup bag in my desk at work and another one in my gym bag. But I also like to have one that I just leave on my vanity, because it takes the guesswork out of doing my makeup in the morning, and I’ll also throw things in there that I’ve been meaning to try, so that I don’t forget about them.

I’ll also bring another makeup bag with me if I’m going somewhere after work, and I know I’ll want to freshen up my makeup.

See? So many makeup bags!

Here are what I currently consider my makeup bag essentials:

makeup bag products

Face products

I’m not really one for powdering my nose on the go, so I have these Palladio Rice Paper Sheets instead.  They soak up excess oil and don’t disturb the rest of my makeup.  They’re very affordable, too (available at Ulta for $3.99).

If my base has worn off, or if I just want to add some coverage, I’ve been loving this Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick. I use the shade called Gargantuan Golden. This one pictured is actually a free one that I got at Sephora, but I purchased the full size about a month ago (at Sephora for $24). I love how easy it is to blend on the skin with just my fingers, so it’s perfect for on-the-go.  It’s build-able up to medium coverage and has a satin finish, so it looks very natural. If you’ve found other stick foundations to be too heavy or too creamy, look into this because it has a less slick feel than others that I’ve tried.

For added glow on the go, I absolutely LOVE Butterfly Beach by ColourPop Cosmetics. It’s a cool-toned champagne highlighter that instantly wakes up my face. I think it’s very flattering and so easy to just apply with my fingers, so this is one of my all-time favorite highlighters.

Lip products

I think lip products definitely pack the most punch in terms of changing up your look. You can turn a basic makeup look into a showstopper just by adding a bold lipstick, so that’s probably why I have so many here!

But, to be fair, the YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush products are actually hybrid blush and lip color products, and I really love them. I have more swatches and a full review here, but I like these because the colors are really flattering, and the product is comfortable on both my cheeks and lips.  

Lots of times, these kinds of products work well on either lips or cheeks, so I really appreciate that these do what they say and really work. The colors that I have are No. 10 Nude Insolent (a rosy brown), No. 2 Rose Frivole (a yellow-based pink) and No. 5 Rouge Effronte (a bright true red), and all of them are really wearable.  

I’d probably only pack one of these in my makeup bag, but I love these because they’re great multitaskers. On the cheeks, they dry to a matte finish, and on the lips you get the feeling of a lip stain, because they dry down completely and have a thin texture; however, the color is very opaque, and you can also layer them to get a more vibrant pop of color if you want. They’re available at Nordstrom for $40 each and come in 12 colors.

I also have two liquid lipsticks here because they’re my favorite way to get a bold lipstick look. I love how long they last and how opaque they are. Shown here are Palladio Velvet Matte Cream Lip Color in Damask and ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Matte Lip in Avenue, one of my favorite red lipsticks.  Both of these are bold lipsticks, and when I want a quick way to change my makeup from day to night, I reach for something like this (here’s a tutorial on my Day to Night Makeup Routine). 🙂  

Both of these lipsticks are really affordable, too.  You can find the Palladio Velvet Matte Cream Lip Colors at Ulta for $7 each and the ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Matte Lips at ColourPop for $6.

I also like to include a couple of nude/neutral lipstick options, and this Kevyn Aucoin lipgloss in Neottiana is my favorite nude lip gloss. It’s hard to find an opaque nude gloss that’s still glossy (and not sticky), and this one’s everything.  It’s available at Neiman Marcus for $30.  

Last, there’s the Palladio Butter Me Up Sheer Color Balm in Luscious.  It’s a super moisturizing sheer red and adds just has a hint of color to my lips. It’s not sticky or too glossy, either, so it’s great to just pop on anytime. It’s available at Sally Beauty for $8.

Eye products

I’m not one for doing major eye makeup on the go, but these are some of my favorites. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is my favorite mascara, hands down. It adds so much volume and doesn’t clump at all.

I also love the jet black color and the brush, because it captures every lash. I don’t typically add mascara if I’m already wearing it, but on days when I leave the house with bare lashes (it happens more than I’d like), I’m so happy to have a little sample size on hand. The full-size mascara is available at Sephora for $23, and the travel size is $12.

Oh, and this Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow  is amazing. This shade here, Caroube, is a shimmery bronze, not too cool nor warm, and it looks great on many skin tones.  

My mom is several shades lighter than me, and it’s so pretty on her. Here’s a full review and swatches of Caroube, along with two other shades, if you’d like more details.

And here are swatches of everything I mentioned:

makeup-bag-product-swatches

L to R: Palladio Sheer Color Balm in Luscious; Kevyn Aucoin Lipgloss in Neottiana; ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Avenue; Palladio Velvet Matte in Damask; Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow in Caroube; YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush in No. 2; YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush in No. 10; YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush in No. 5; ColourPop Super Shock Cheek in Butterfly Beach; Clinique Chubby In The Nude Foundation Stick in Gargantuan Golden

About the swatches, these are on my inner arm, which is by far the lightest place on my body, so I promise this Clinique foundation matches my face, despite how it looks!

How about you? What are your current makeup bag essentials? I’d love to hear about them in the comments.

Palladio Desert Rose Herbal Mosaic Powder Pictures, Swatches, Review

Wearing Palladio’s $8 Herbal Mosaic Powder in Desert Rose on my cheeks; available now online and at Ulta and Sally Beauty Supply stores

Imagine strolling into a Santa Fe art gallery one sunny afternoon and finding a makeup mosaic for $8.

Yup, Palladio’s Herbal Mosaic Powder in Desert Rose is a little like that.

The pan has a mosaic pattern with five complementing powders you can wear individually, or swirled together, as a bronzer, blush, eyeshadow or highlighter.

Since the individual strips of color aren’t all that wide (the entire pan fits in my palm), I usually mix all of the shades together, and apply them to my cheeks with a fluffy blush brush.

On my NC 42 skin, a single layer delivers a rosy, peachy flush with golden pearl. Pretty! — especially for weekends or for casual makeup looks… Which reminds me, worn as a blush on bare skin or atop tinted moisturizer, I think Desert Rose looks a heck of a lot more expensive than $8. Shoot, it looks downright high end.

But worn with anything more than minimal makeup, and the forecast gets cloudy. For instance, if I’m wearing a medium or full-coverage foundation with it, or apply it on top of skin that’s already been powdered, I can see the grains sitting on top of my skin.

Buffing it down with a kabuki brush helps, but that takes a couple extra minutes.

Not a deal-breaker, but still. Something to keep in mind if you don’t have many minutes to spare.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Magnesium Silicate, Magnesium Steatate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Dimethicone, Isotridecyl Isononanoate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Oryzanol, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract. May Contain: Mica, Iron Oxides (CI 77491/CI 77492/CI 77499), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 27 Lake (CI 45410), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288).

Last Saturday I wore Desert Rose out to solo brunch (El Hub was working) and to run a few errands, and I noticed that after about 5-6 hours, the color had started to fade, which means having to touchup about halfway through the day.

No Desert Rose is perfect — not even this one — but for $8, I do think you get a lot of beauty and bang for your buck.

PRICE: $7.99
AVAILABILITY: Available now online, and at Sally Beauty Supply and Ulta stores
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

Palladio Herbal Plump n Shine Sheerly Pink

That there is Palladio’s $6 Herbal Plump ‘n’ Shine in Sheerly Pink on my lips

You know what I like more than warm brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side?

Not a lot. LOL! 🙂

Kidding. But seriously, I love finding new budget beauty bargains, like Palladio’s Herbal Plump ‘n’ Shine lip glosses.

There’s not a lot to ’em. They’re just your everyday comfy glosses with a brush applicator and a mirror-like shine, but they’re only $6 each, so they don’t cost an arm and a leg, and they’re packed with botanical ingredients.

Ingredients

Polybutene, Octyldodecanol, Silica Silylate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Ricinus Communis (Castor Oil) Seed Oil, Pentaerithrityl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Polyglyceryl-2 Diisostearate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Microcrystaliine Wax, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Tribehenin, Sorbitan Isostearate, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Retinyl Palmitate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Soluble Collagen, Tocopherol, BHT, Bumetrizole, Tetradibutyl, Propylparaben

Generally, when it comes to plumping lip products, I pretty much ignore the claims (except when they say something about “burning” or “buzzing”). These do have a faint tingling sensation, but I don’t mind. I actually do feel like the shine from these, if not the tingling, does make my lips appear a little bigger (or maybe that’s just the tingling keeping me on my toes).

Luckily, I like the way they taste and smell faintly of vanilla, since they don’t last all that long on my lips. I find myself having to whip one out to re-apply every hour.

PRICE: $6 each (available in a range of colors)
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sally Beauty Supply and Ulta stores, and also online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B (nice for the price, but limited wear time)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

P.S. TGIF!
