My Current Make Up Bag + win with Farfetch

Every now and again I like to do a bit of a shake up as to what is in my make-up bag, particularly the one I either carry in my hand bag or the one I keep at work. As it has been a long time since I have shared my current make up bag on my blog and I have a few new bits I am a tad obsessed with, I have done a mixture of the two make up bags I have to show you the most used items along with some items I would really like to add to it.

So my two make up bags are quite old and I do need ones.  But the Gorjuss bag I just adore and it is a lot roomier than it looks.  It is this make up bag that is always in my handbag.  The second one features a cats face and this is one I have in my drawer at work and it is by Jellycat.

I am quite surprised at how much 'stuff' I have between these two bags currently, though there does seem to be a product for everything and a variety of brands including Benefit, Essence, Models Own, GOSH, Barry M, Real Techniques, By Terry, Balmi, Kiko, Sleek, Dior, Tom Ford, TweezerIt, Travelo and Primark PS range.

I am obsessed with the By Terry Light Expert Click brush which I have featured here because it is just so easy to use and is essentially two products in one.  I like the finish and it works well with my Benefit powder foundation, which I have in shade Champagne.  Primers are another obsession and I flit between Porefessional and Make Up Revolution Face Base, both of which do an amazing job.  License to Blot, again by Benefit is an absolute life saver for those shiny moments and I adore this mini.  I also have my colour correcting crayons from Primark which do a better job than the Max Factor versions.  When it comes to lipstick, I usually have more than two in my bag at all times and currently Kiko, Dior and Tom Ford are all getting an outing but I keep my lips moisturished and nourished with this Balmi lip balm.  Models Own Nude Palette is the perfect size for carrying around and I love all the shades, easy to use and wear.  Essence is a brand I am on a path of discovery with and currently this powder palette I use as a bronzer and it works really well with Sugar Bomb or my almost depleted Sleek Rose Gold Blush.

If every given the chance to add to my make up collection, there is a whole host of products that I have on a wishlist for Space.NK and when Farfetch got in touch to tell me that not only are they proud to announce the launch of its new Beauty section, with newly signed boutique Space NK Apothecary, they are also hosting a competition giving you the chance to win a £250 Farfetch voucher and to enter all you need to is go to Farfetch.com, choose the best items from the skincare, haircare, make up and male grooming products and post your choices on your blog along with a picture of your makeup bag before March 13 and this is my wishlist.



Space NK Wishlist

Now this is an amazing range of products and every single one just sounds amazing. Hourglass is a brand I have read so much about, some mixed reviews but mainly rave reviews and the palette contains five richly pigmented shades in a range of finishes from matte to shimmer. Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder is a product I also bought a few weeks ago and it is just an amazing Shimmer powder in Candlelight. Apply to the forehead, cheeks, temples, chin or decollete. There are two products from Becca on this list and it is one of those brands I really just want to try everything of. The nude palette contains 5 neutral shadow shades that work to brighten the eyes and again, in sleek packaging, it just screams buy me, you need me. The second Becca product is the Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured Moonstone and the only thing I ca say is that it is just stunning, I saw it at the QVC Bash I went to a few weeks ago and just love it. The EveLom Sheer Radiance Translucent Powder is one I have swatched in Space NK and I really liked how it felt on the skin, plus it is like a dual use product with a brush. By Terry is another brand I am a huge fan of and this Hyaluronic Hydra Primer comes with big claims that make me want to try it to see if it is as amazing as it sounds. Described as being a smoothing, plumping primer that improves skin tone and texture with its matte finish. This line-erasing, wrinkle-filling primer firms and plumps the skin whilst delivering translucent coverage for a silken finish. When a mascara is priced at £60 it must do something a little more than coat them with colour right? Well this one by Chantecaille is called Faux Cils Mascara Longest Lash and it claims that after 2 weeks of use, Sympeptide17 helps stimulate lash growth by 25 percent for naturally longer lashes, so this, I need to see. The final two products within my wishlist are lip products. I am currently obsessed with the GOSH lip oils and have been using the one I have ever since I got it, but this Hourglass version not only looks stunning and has a funky applicator it has a formula which blends 14 essential oils, 10 plant oils and 4 vitamins with three powerful active ingredients to nurture, hydrate and regenerate the delicate lip area. Then we have lipstick, an obsession that I fear will never end. Lipstick Queen is a brand I am familiar with and have two lipsticks from. This lipstick, called Rose Sinner, is a stunning rose shade and has been on my list for a while.

What would be on your wishlist right now?

  2. Every woman seems to have an almost endless amount of stuff in their handbags and make-up bags, so you're not alone. As for what make up is on my wishlist, would you believe that there is nothing at all make up wise on the list? lol
