Inside my make up bag

I recently went on a one week trip to Leicester, Birmingham and Nottingham to visit friends. It was such a fun trip and here's what I bought with me... 

I tried to bring as little as possible, also I knew I'd be staying with four other girls. Who like me loves their make up so I could always borrow their stuff too ;)

The make up bag was a freebie from Dior many years ago when my mother bought a few of their make up products. I love the mint colour and the tassle detail. but the best thing about this bag is that you can unzip the bottom bit and it's just the perfect size to store your brushes. I'm not sure if the design is intentional, but it is now my favourite make up bag!

If you read my earlier post, I recently bought the YSL lipstain and lipstick. I think it is safe to say that the YSL Glossy Lipstain is now a firm favourite! It ticks all boxes for me; consistency, colour pay off, minimal fuss and that divine packaging!

So in details of what I bought along: 

Urban Decay Naked Palette
Nars Blush Duo in Orgasm and Angelika
YSL Touche Eclat
YSL Glossy stain in Rose Tempura
YSL Pur Couture lipstick in Rose Dahlia
Topshop Lip and Cheek Stain in Bitten Berry
OCC Lip Tar in Harlot
MAC lipstick in Lovelorn
Rimmel Lipliner in East End Snob
MAC Cremestick Liner in Sublime Culture
 Laura Mercier Brow Definer in Soft
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
 Make Up Forever Aqua Cream in Shade 14
Cover girl Lash Blash Volume Mascara
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer
MAC Harmony Blush (used to contour)
Chanel Eyelash Curlers 

A few snaps from my trip :)
