This week's makeup bag :

I really enjoy this kind of posts when other bloggers do it, so I thought I would  give it a go, especially since it's the end of the week. This is everything I carried in my MAC makeup bag this week, it is a bit random and it changes everyday or week according to my mood, or the lipstick i am wearing that day or where i am going.
Note I would never carry so less if I was to travel, and if I had a night out I would just carry my lipstick and my powder.
Maybe some day i would make a different post with what i usually take with me for travelling or maybe a different one every week since i switch it up so often. I like to rotate products to make a good use out of them.

Straight up from my bag after spending all day out.

List :
  • Chanel ombre essentielle soft touch eyeshadow in taupe grise. I use this everyday since i bought it, day and night. Thinking of buying more of these, i love them! (amethyst & ebony)
  • YSL Touche Eclat. Honestly, i don't really know how i feel about this one, if i like it or not. Right now, i am trying to use it up so i can buy Dior Skinflash. I don't have noticable bags or darkness, but i dont see how it brightens at all. It's meh to me.
  • A hair bubble, i always need to attach my hair back if i feel hot or if i feel my hair looks bad!
  • Labello or Liposan lip balm, one of my staples.
  • Q-tip to clean the smudgy mess of mascara and eyeliner through the day.
  • MAC Coffee, a dark brown eye pencil. I love this one.
  • A little Sephora mirror with a cat on it, how cute!
  • The Body Shop tea trea oil facial blotting tissues. It does an amazing job at blotting the excess oil and providing a shine-free face.
  • Lip smacker in vanilla. I am not a gloss person, but when i want to give that extra oomph to my lips i use this, plus the smell is worth it.
  • Clinique superpowder double face powder in shade 07-matte neutral. I use it to set foundation and to touch up through the day.
  • YSL tea rose lipstick 148, rouge pure. Unfortunately this shade is discontinued:( It looks like a lighter version of MAC Hue on me, the consistency is great, so lightweight but it doesn't last very long on the lips. I like that it is an hybrid between a gloss and a lipstick, so when i dont want to wear mattes i wear this for an effortless look.
  • Too Faced retractable kabuki brush. I threw the little sponge of all my face powders to never be tempted to use them, as it absorbs all the oils and germs. Instead i use this one all over my face when i touch up, and the cap makes it great to carry around.

What do you carry in your makeup bag?

I hope you enjoyed ! Have a great weekend !
