Whats in my makeup bag

I see a lot of “What’s in my makeup bag” posts and tags, so I figured I’d join the band wagon.

Whats in my makeup bag

I never really noticed how many products I use on the daily getting ready for work until I emptied my bag and took this picture.


The things we do for beauty and to look polished up.

The products from the order I put them on:

11 darn things! Holy Moly!  That’s without eyeshadow!  I normally also put a lil highlighter in the inner corner of my eyes but I always put it back in my makeup storage because it’s my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette.  It’s too big to tote around in my makeup bag if I’m only using one color for a highlight.

A lil bit about each product….

  • Missha Misa Cho Bo Yang moisturizer cream- I’ve been really focusing on my skin care and making sure I put on a facial moisturizer,  day and night.  I love the benefits of Ginseng and the smell of it also.  It’s a light weight moisturizer and I don’t go a day without it now.
  • Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Mattifying Foundation for us oily skinned folks.  I’ve been using this for the past couple of weeks and I LOVE IT!  I haven’t had to blot my face throughout the day with this product.  It is a high-end foundation product and if I’m paying $55 for it, it better darn work!  It has definitely proved that it does.  So if you’re a fellow oily girl chic as myself, go to your nearest Sephora to get matched up and get you a sample.
  • Beauty Blender Oh this darn lil air-brushed finishing sponge, it took me forever to jump on the beauty blender band wagon.  I just couldn’t look at a $20 bill and transfer from one hand to receive just a lil pink sponge in the other. But, finally I splurged at Christmas time and I haven’t looked back!  Who woulda thought that this lil sponge would work wonders as it does!  I highly recommend going out and getting this!  Right now they even have a limited edition one in the color lavender purple for Spring.  So, as of now, they have them in the colors pink, lavender,  black, and pure white.  I have the pink and the white one.  They really do work wonders!
  • MAC Skinfinish in the shade Deep Dark for my bronzer and contouring.   I put it along the hollows of my cheeks from the ear down towards the corners of my lips.  Also at the temples on the corners of my forehead and along my jaw line and if I’m going all out, the sides of my nose to skim it down.  Soon, I’ll get the NEW MAC Studio Sculpt cream to play with, but right now I have so many bronzers, I just can’t see myself shelling out more cash for it. I love contouring my face, but if you’re in a rush in the mornings, just do it along the hollows of your cheeks and you’re good to go.
  • Ben Nye banana powder I use this to brighten up and highlight my dark under eyes.  This is great for women that have yellow undertones.   They also make a shade for women that have pink undertones. When I use it, I place it like a triangle below my eyes down along the sides of my nose to extend out to my hairline next to my eyes.  Let it set for a couple of minutes then lightly dust it off with a brush using a soft hand.  You’ll definitely see I newly awakened self.
  • NARS Blush in my favorite everyday shade Deep Throat- This is a perfect pink for everyday use for me.  I just swipe on top of the apples of my cheeks and extend a lil bit just shy of my hairline.
  • MAC Viva Glam Rihanna lipstick and MAC Lipliner in Brick- I apply my lipstick first lightly just shy up my natural lip line then I apply my lip liner then again finish up shading in the rest of my lips with my lipstick.  I find it best for me to apply my lipsticks that way.  This is my new staple lipstick.  It goes with every skin tone that I’ve seen and it makes me feel more confident and fierce! Go ‘head MAC!  I LOVE THIS SHADE!
  • MAC Eyelash curler This is the ONLY eyelash curler that works for my uncurly asian straight eyelashes.  They don’t tug at my eyelashes and it gets every last eyelash!  I clamp my eyelashes in and lightly squeeze several times and slightly extend up to get my desired curl.  I know it’s on the lil expensive side, but like I said, it’s the only one that works for me.  Even the eyelash curlers that look like exact dupes for this doesn’t work for me.  They somehow snag and rip out my lashes, which is a definite HELL NAW moment!  So I’ll dish out the money for this.  They last a very long time and you only have to replace the lil silicone black thingys that you put in there.
  • MAC Fluidline in Blacktrackthis is the only black gel-like liner that stays in place for me.  Once it dries, it stays put!  It dries quite fast so you have to work quick.  I apply it to my tightline along my lashes to get a natural full-look with my Sigma E16 tightline brush and I finish my cat eye look with MAC 266 angled brush.  FLAWLESS!
  • Sephora Outrageous Volume mascara in Ultra Black- Again, one of my Holy Grails/Staple makeup products.  I love the tiny little bristles of this brus and I haven’t actually counted how many there are but theres a ton!  This is the only mascara that coats every lash, lenghtens and gives out of this world va va voom volume!  This is the most dramatized mascara for me!  And the price is only $15! The only downside to it, is that you have to put in a lil gentle care in removing it at the end of the day.  But with that said, you’ll know that it’ll stay put throughout the day.

Well Dolls, that’s the contents of my everyday makeup bag.  I hope you enjoyed and learned a lil on why those are my everyday products that I choose.

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

MAC Cosmetics has outdone themselves this time with the NEW Viva Glam Rihanna!

This shade goes well on ALL skin tones! Meaning, EVERYONE!!

This is the staple of all lipstick!

I bought two just in case it sold out.  I will be going back to get more though.  I don’t want to run out of this.

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

This is the Fiercest of Red lipsticks and who better to represent it other than Rihanna!

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

This is just a little too fierce to wear in my military uniform during work, but I put on MAC Diva first then top it off with this Viva Glam Rihanna to make a perfect mixture.   I call it Rihanna the Diva!

I’ll do some photos of that lipstick mix this week.

But onto to reason we’re here……. Viva Glam Rihanna!

I’m absolutely in LOVE with this shade.

It’s a bold fiercely red frosted lipstick.  There’s also a lipglass, but the lipstick itself is moisturizing and bold enough for me to not have to wear the gloss.

The great thing about the MAC Viva Glam collection is that, every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM Rihanna goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition, soft-touch red packaging features RiRi’s signature.

There’s that Limited-Edition phrase…….If you haven’t jumped in your vehicle yet to go to the MAC counter or ordered online, DO IT NOW before they’re GONE.  Actually, just wait a few minutes, because I have to place an order myself!!!

I’m Filipina with a MAC NC 30-35 shade.

So this is what it looks like on me.  Now mind you, I don’t have the best camera.  I seriously need a new camera to take some awesome clearer photos to post here.  So, if y’all got the hook up…..Help your girl out!!! I’m jus’ sayin’!!!!

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

Yes, I love to be goofy.

But I’m just so freaking happy to have this lipstick gem!

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

I think I’ve mentioned this but just in case I haven’t……..I LOVE HAVING VIVA GLAM RIHANNA!!!

I don’t know how MAC is going to up the ante from this shade.

Rihanna has collaborated with MAC before and some people are so over it already, but I’m glad they’re sticking with her.  Why mess up a good thing!  It’s obviously working!

This shade is an epitome of the fierceness Rihanna!

Hands down the BEST Viva Glam to date!

With these shade ranges, you can never go wrong.

I’ve already posted my Pink lipsticks Must-Haves.  So if you love your pinks, go check those out.

Today I’m going to show you my Burgundy Must-Haves.

MAC Burgundy Lipsticks

Have you been rocking Burgundy lips this Fall/Winter?

I sure have!!

I know these shades are mostly for the Fall/Winter months, but I think I may continue into Spring.  I love one in particular.  I’ll tell you about that one in a little bit.

You may be thinking to yourself that you can’t rock the Burgundy look, but it there’s a shade for EVERYONE!

You just have to be brave enough to rock these colors.

They’re so bold and daring,  people may think twice to cross you in a negative way. Especially, if you haven’t had your coffee yet. 😉

Let’s get into the swatches.

MAC Burgundy LipsticksMAC Burgundy LipsticksMAC Burgundy Lipsticks MACMAC Burgundy Lipsticks MAC Cosmetics

The colors that I have are all my M•A•C Cosmetics.

From left to right:

New York Apple, Diva, Heart Hangover,  Dark Side, Endless Drama,  Hipster, Media, Dark Deed, and Underground.

Descriptions of each:

New York Apple (Frost) is a classic berry-based red

Diva (Matte) is an intense reddish burgundy

Heart Hangover (Pro Longwear Lipcreme) is a deep maroon color that lasts forever!

Dark Side (Amplified) is a deep cool-toned burgundy red

Endless Drama (Pro Longwear Lipcreme) is a deep berry red with a soft frosted finish with Rudy micro-shimmer

Hipster (Frost) is a burgundy plum with a frost finish

Media (Satin) is a deep burgundy plum

Dark Deed (Amplified) is a darkened blood-red with blacklish-brown with an amplified fishing touch from the MAC’s Disney Venomous Villains Collection.

Underworld (Satin) is a deepened red-based brown with a glossy satin finish

The way I apply my lipsticks is that I put on my lipstick first just a little shy of my lip line then I apply my lip liner.  I found that best for when I apply lipsticks,  because you don’t want a harsh line. I blend in my lip liner after my lipstick.

Give it a try if you don’t already do that and let me know what you think.  If it works for you or not.

Now to my FAVORITE Burgundy lipstick that I told you I was going to tell you about…..My Must-Have, can’t run out of it Burgundy lipstick is ENDLESS DRAMA!

I Can wear this shade in my military uniform and feel fabulous, fierce, and in military regulations!

Now that I’ve shown you my Must-Have Burgundy lipsticks,  was any of yours on this list?
