What's in My Makeup Bag | February 2017 | My Current Makeup Favorites

I realized today that I have never done a regular What's In My Makeup Bag. I've only done a school edition and that was in 2015.

I've never done a post about my current makeup. I thought that today I should change that. So I decided that today I'd show you guys what products I'm currently loving.

This might be a long one so grab a cup of tea and settle in. All the products mentioned will be listed at the bottom of the posts.


I got this bag for Christmas in from my dad. He found a brush set at Walmart that had this bag and 6 brushes with rainbow metal on them. I love them! This bag has such pretty rose gold on it and the brushes look so pretty too!

So now on to what's in the bag!


So let's start with the face products I currently have in my bag. I only have one liquid foundation type product in my bag right now, Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream. It has light to medium coverage. I really love this BB cream but I'm on the hunt for new ones to try, let me know in the comments if there is a BB cream or foundation I should try!

I have 4different concealers in my bag at the moment. First up, my favourite Maybelline Fit Me concealer.  It is smooth and creamy and covers great!

I also have Maybelline Age Rewind in my bag. I just got it after hearing so many people talk about it. I just had to try it. I've only used it a few times but I like it so far.

I have also been using Rimmel Match Perfection concealer recently. I really love this concealer! It has nice coverage and blends well.

I also have NYX Dark Circle concealer in my bag. It's not that great on spots but it's great for dark circles as the name suggests.

As for powder I recently broke my favourite powder in a million pieces while travelling. I know MAKEUP TRAGEDY! So I currently only have one powder in my bag. The Maybelline Better Skin Powder. Influenster sent me this powder when it was released and I love it!


So let's talk about the cheek products. I don't have much in my bag when it comes to cheek products at the moment.

For blush, I have the NYX Powder Blush in 2 shades, Peach and Cinnamon. I really love this blush! It's pretty much the only blush I use.

As for bronzer, I have two. First, Urban Decay Beached Bronzer. I got this bronzer as soon as it came out and it's been in my bag ever since. I love it! It has a great colour and it's smooth and blends really well.

And the other bronzer I have is Benefit Dew The Hoola. It is Benefit's liquid bronzer. I really like it. It blends well and has a really nice colour. It blends to look like powder which I really like.


So on to eye products. First primer. I don't use eyeshadow primer every time I do my eyes but I still always keep the Urban Decay Primer Potion in my bag just in case. I usually only use it when I do brights or something with shimmer.

Next on to the palette I take everywhere. The Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. I love this palette! It is the perfect neutrals palette! I use it all the time! It goes with everything and it's matte!

My other favourite and most used shadows are the NYX Nude Matte Singles. They come is a lot of great colours. My favourite shades are skinny dip, a burgundy with brown undertones, and Betrayal, a chocolate brown.

I also love the NYX Hot Singles matte shades. They have a few brights and a few nudes. The only shade in my bag right now is cupcake which is a baby pink.

Ok so let's talk eyeliner. I have quite a few in my bag right now. My favourite is Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner. I love the colour and it goes on smooth and stays so well! I have the black and grey shade in my bag. I love them so much!

I always keep UD's liner in my bag but I also keep it's dupe Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl liner. It really is a great dupe for UD liner! I love it! I usually only use a black liner or maybe grey but lately, I've been keeping the black and nude shades of this liner in my bag recently.

The last liner I currently have in my bag is the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon. I really like this one. It's nice and creamy like the UD liner but it doesn't stay quite as well.

So that's shadow and liner down. Now on to mascara. My new favourite liner is Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara!  It makes my lashes look full and beautiful! I feel in love from the first brush stroke.

I also have the Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes mascara in my bag. I'm not really a bottom lashes mascara person but if I do want lower lash mascara I love to use this one because the wand is really small and the formula is nice.

Lastly brows! I actually only have one brow product in my whole collection. NYX Brow Cake Powder. It is so great! You can do natural brows or really draw on ones. I really love this powder but I do need to try more brow products this year.


Now my favourite part! The lipsticks! I love lippies! If you have ever been on this blog before you probably know that. I just did a post about lippies I'm currently loving. Not all of them are currently in my bag but I really love them right now. 

First up the lipstick that will never leave my bag Rimmel London Lasting Finish lipstick. I love these lipsticks so much! They have great pigmentation, are truly matte and never dry out your lips! In my bag, I currently have 107, 111, and 10.

Next up, my second favourite all-time lipstick, MAC Retro Matte lipstick. I love the formula of this lipstick and the shade Ruby Woo is the most beautiful classic red!

I really love Urban Decay. They make really amazing products. I am really loving the Urban Decay Vice Matte Lipstick in 714 right now. It's so pretty!

Next up the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. I have a love-hate relationship with these lip creams. Sometimes they look nice and other times they are patchy. You have to do 2+ layers to get rid of the patchiness. And the darker the shades the more patchy... But I really love the colours so I use them anyway. It just takes a minute to apply. Not a lippie for a 5-minute look.

Last up is the Urban Decay 24/7 Lipliner. I love this liner on its own. It's smooth and looks great. It has a great colour and pigment and wears nice all on its own.
