What is In your Makeup Bag?

What Products are in Your Makeup Bag? (Because I Lost Mine!)

by Kaya Marriott

What is in your Makeup Bag? I’ve kept it to myself because I think I was still holding out hope, but I have now reached the stage of acceptance:

I have lost my makeup bag.

It happened while I was in London. Silly me thought it would be a brilliant idea to  bring my whole makeup bag with me to my cousins wedding. I don’t want to go into detail, because it’s still too painful, but long story short, I have lost my makeup bag full of nearly all my favourite lipsticks, lipliners, eyeliners, mascaras, brushes, you name it.

At first, I made a VERY low-ball estimate of $300 worth of lost product. Now, as I have been looking into replacing it all, I realize an accurate, yet still low number would be closer to $500 of lost makeup… Somebody out there hit the jackpot, that’s for sure.

So now that I have accepted my loss, my only option is to move on. Slowly but surely, I will be rebuilding, and I am looking to hear your recommendations! What beauty products do you have stashed away in your makeup bag? What are your favourite brushes?

So far (besides a couple stragglers I had left behind) all I have are three lipsticks from Anna’s Lipsticks:

What is in your Makeup Bag? - Anna's Lipsticks - Organic, Handmade, VeganBut here are some things on my  list to buy, and some brands I’m looking to further explore:

Real Techniques Enhanced Eye Starter Set Of Makeup Brushes (Repurchase) :

I was so absolutely in love with this brush set. This is a non-negotiable repurchase for me.

Kat Von D’s Everlasting Obsession set:

Realistically though, I will buy one at a time, because I have bills to pay….What is in your Makeup Bag? - Kat Von D's Liquid LipsticksBlack Opal:

I have long been curious about Black Opal (a brand created specifically for people of colour), but I have never tried them out. Checking out their site now, I am also realizing how affordable they are! (At $7.50 Each)… Although… I am also realizing that they do not ship to Canada… I think it may be time for me to invest in a P.O. Box just across the border…

Melted Matte Liquified Lipstick from Too Faced:

Yes, I know that I’m a sucker for Matte Liquid Lipsticks. But the colours Too Faced have are awesome, and from what I can tell from swatching at Sephora, the formula is awesome too! (If you have tried it, I’d love to hear what you think!)What is in your Makeup Bag? - Too Faced Melted Matte

So again, what is in your makeup bag? what do you suggest I get first? What are your most highly recommended beauty products? I need to know, I’m starting from scratch here!

I look forward to hearing your suggestions, and stay tuned as I slowly but surely fill up a new makeup bag!
