Monday through Friday you will find me at work, driving around, or at home. When at home I have zero glam going on, but while I am out I tend to be high maintenance with what I carry around. This post is all about the makeup and body care items I currently use in my bag, in my desk at work, and in my car. Being a beauty product addict, I enjoy having options available at all times.
Simply Bee Peppermint Moisturizing Lotion Bar
This buttery wax bar is made in Oregon and is my favorite way to keep my hands from getting dry at work. I prefer it over a hand lotion.
Lorac POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder in PF3
This powder was recommended by my current favorite YouTuber Shelbey Ashburn, and has replaced my It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Airbrush Silk Pressed Anti-Aging Finishing Powder since it shattered. I use this powder when I am getting oily throughout the day because it gives a beautiful lightweight finish without getting cakey. I also love it for setting my liquid foundation.
Nail Polish remover wipes
I use a generic brand from Target, and they come in handy when I find my nail polish chipping.
Lady Speed Stick Shower Fresh Deodorant
I always go back to this brand and scent!
Atelier Cologne Collection Azur – Figuier Ardent
This perfume is my current scent obsession. It starts out so fresh and crisp when sprayed, but warms up as it sets into the skin. The bottle comes in a leather sleeve so that I don’t have to worry about it breaking or bumping around in a bag.
LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter
I have such dry cuticles and a bad habit of pulling at them.
Maybelline Precise Skinny Gel Pencil #230 Refined Charcoal
Sometimes I use this to add some definition to my lash line around lunch time if I don’t have time to do so when getting ready in the morning. The pencil point is even tiny enough to add a wing!
I was not intending this post to contain so many lip products! Below are the ones I have found to be my holy grail products that I use constantly.
Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips
Classic Chapstick in Cake Batter
Best lip moisturizer out there in my opinion. Cake Batter is my favorite scent.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Undressed Lip Gloss
This has been my everyday spring lip color! Nude glosses are my go to for work lately because they are comfortable, moisturizing, and finish off a the light makeup look I am usually going for at work. Undressed is extremely pigmented and makes my lips look bigger. I love this pale peachy shade.
NYX Butter Gloss in Madeline
I use this at my desk for touch ups and for added moisture. The application is foolproof, great color, and it’s a great price. I’d like to try the intense butter gloss formula next.
Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation in Nude
I always keep this in my bag for when I want a matte lip. These have an interesting formula that reminds me Colourpop’s Matte x lippie stick. They are long lasting, pigmented, and you do not need a lip liner!
Buxom Full on Lip Cream in White Russian
Another awesome gloss, this has a minty taste and scent. The color makes my lips look a bit lighter (good thing) but does not require a mirror. Less opaque than the ABH gloss.
Essence Lip Liner #11 in the nude
I always keep this in my purse. It has a good formula for being inexpensive.
BITE Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Sugar Cane
The formula is AMAZING and this color is the perfect pink/nude shade.
