I love makeup.
I love to buy it, wear it, hoard it, sell it. I love to write about it! Makeup Mondays are going to be fun days for me to write about a new makeup look I'm loving, a mascara I've recently discovered that doesn't flake, etc! Today, since it's the first Makeup Monday and all, I want to do a simple, special post and show you what's currently being toted around in my very own makeup bag.
And yes, I do regularly read the brilliant blog No More Dirty Looks, which is what inspired me to do this post :).
(Is my current fave makeup brand too obvious?)
THE BAG: Is this not the cutest bag ever?? I got it in my July Fair Treasure subscription box (one of several I subscribe to, and yes I intend to start doing unboxing posts!). It's a fair trade creation from Zen Zen that was handmade in India using palm fronds. Love :).
Dark Chocolate + Mint Argan Oil Lip Balm: Tingly, minty and smooth, this lip balm is awesome.
Lip Tint in Savannah: I love this chocolatey delicious lip tint. This one happened to make it into my makeup bag after it was meant for my eBay store, but my boston terrier decided to have a chew on the outside. Still perfect inside, but not fit for sale! Mine now :)
Juicy Bamboo Natural Facial Cleansing Cloths: I keep a few of these super lush, super effective individually sealed cloths in my bag because, you know, just in case!

Vegan Lip Balm in Tangerine Lime: A girl can never have too many lip balms. A girl can never have too many of MMT's amazing vegan lip balms! I have one in cocoa, too. Best. Lip balms. Ever.
Fiori D'Arancio Perfume Oil: This is my amazing citrus-y, floral signature scent and I love it! It doesn't last long, about four hours, so I like to keep this nifty rollerball with me for touch-ups and de-stress aromatherapy moments.
Crystalized Lime Packets: I try and try and try to drink more water, I really do! But truth is, I like my drinks to have some flavor. Enter True Lime packets, so much more convenient that toting around lime juice.
Bio Extreme Lip Gloss in Natural: I've been carrying around this lovely, nourishing lipgloss since it's release a few months ago. It's supposed to smell like peppermint, but to me it smells like Wrigley's cinnamon flavored gum, Big Red.
Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara: This mascara is awesome! No clumps, just beautiful, long, fluffy eyelashes.
Narcissist 0 Foundation + Concealer Stick: I use this under my eyes and on blemishes, and it is just so darn nifty, not to mention fun to use.
Universalist 1 Creamy Pink Multi-Use Color Stick: Another nifty stick, and such a pretty color, too. It's been likened to cult-classic Nars Orgasm.
Vanilla Spice Perfect Energy Tea Sachet: I am a big tea drinker; love tea! Much as I love online shopping, I love Yogi tea because it's accessible to buy at my local grocery store, plus this one tastes really great!
So there you have it! My current makeup bag :). It does change regularly, so maybe I'll do another post like this someday in the future. Thanks for tuning in to my first real post for my newly revamped blog. I'm also working on another super special post that I should have up this evening! Two post in one day, I know!! I must be feeling motivated ;) See you later?!
