Makeup That Stays in my Purse – Fall Edition

Spilling what’s in my bag

If I’m ever missing a lipstick or gloss, the first place I check is my purse. I usually have a plethora of lip products in there at any given time. They’re the easiest way to switch up a look in my opinion. I also always have a little powder and some hand cream in a cute Glossier bubble pouch. So here are all of the beauty products I’m currently toting around:

Besame Vanilla Brightening Powder ($22) – this is my favorite setting powder. It looks so natural on the skin and the very slight yellow tint brightens beautifully. I like the packaging because it has a little cap inside that makes sure powder doesn’t fly everywhere and holds a soft powder puff for when you’re out and about. It also smells like vanilla.

Winky Lux Glazed Donut Lip Glaze in Berry Glaze ($13 – left swatch) – this gloss smells delicious. It’s a sheer purple tone with lots of shimmer. It catches the light beautifully and doesn’t feel gritty on the lips thankfully. I find it to be slightly moisturizing throughout the 2 hour wear time.

L’oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Sparkling Rose ($10 – 2nd from left) – this is a great everyday lipstick. The color is a medium pink with warm undertones that lightens my natural lip color. It feels like a lip balm and wears for about 3 hours.

Tocca Crema de Mano in Florence ($8) – I love this scent! It’s one of the only floral scents I really like wearing and it doesn’t give me a headache. Florence is the gardenia and xxx fragrance. This hand cream is moisturizing, but it’s not too thick, so it sinks in quickly.

Bite Agave Lip Mask in Maple ($26 – 2nd from right) – I’m sure you guys know by now how much I love these masks, so I’m sorry to be repetitive. Maple is a beautiful bronze color that looks really pretty and wearable on the lips. This is the most moisturizing lip product I’ve tried and it lasts for about 4 or 5 hours.

Tom Ford Soleil Lip Balm in 06 La Piscine ($36 – right swatch) – I love this vampy shade for fall. It is a tinted balm, so the color payoff is sheer, but I prefer that because it’s so low maintenance. It’s not very moisturizing, but the color lasts for over 4 hours.

So that’s what’s in my little purse makeup bag. The lip colors are constantly changing, so maybe I’ll do this seasonally!

Winky Lux Experience NYC #itsawinkyworld

Another fun store visit!

 

I just wrote about popping by The Detox Market’s new NYC location and have another shop to share today! Anastasia and I reserved tickets for the Winky Lux Experience this afternoon. It costs $10 to tour seven adorably themed rooms and then you get to apply that $10 to any makeup or skincare in the store!

I liked that each theme corresponded to a Winky Lux product and a helpful guide shared ingredients, texture tips, and swatches as we went through the rooms. The rooms are very playful and some are interactive. They’re all, of course, very Instagrammable.

We had a group of just four girls, which was perfect to view each room and take pictures together. The rooms are kind of small, so I wouldn’t recommend going with a larger group. We had plenty of time to explore the products and take pictures in each room – we didn’t feel rushed at all. Thankfully the other two girls with us were bloggers too!

Afterward we shopped around a bit. I was torn between these gorgeous Glazed Lip glosses and the Kitten Palette. The glosses smell delicious – like doughnuts – and they aren’t sticky at all. They aren’t super pigmented either, but you can definitely tell the difference between the shades. I like that they’re more of lip toppers and easy to apply on the go since they’re sheer.

The Kitten Palette has a perfect mix of neutral and fun shades in my opinion. The shimmers were buttery and the mattes were pretty smooth. I was definitely tempted by this, but I just purchased the new Becca palette and don’t need another eyeshadow palette right now. Plus I don’t have that many lip glosses! I went for the Berry one since it has a fun purple undertone that’s nice for fall. After the ticket discount, it was less than $4 with tax!

I’ve been wearing it for a couple hours and the texture is very smooth on the lips. It hasn’t faded at all which is impressive for a gloss and it feels hydrating as well. The applicator is great for applying enough product with just one dip into the tube too.

Overall, I would totally recommend making a reservation to see the rooms and then using your credit to shop! All of their products are so adorable and affordable too!
