What's In Her Makeup Bag #02

I first met Ysa briefly back in DLSU.. No, wait actually scratch that, I first met her via Tumblr where we bonded over incessant football rants during the 2010 World Cup. She also runs an amazingly funny/witty travel blog here. Also: have a look at her lipstick collection!

Forgive me for the selfie, but I deemed it appropriate because out of all the places I've been to, only in Siem Reap did I get so much praise for my outrageous choice in lip colour! :))

Anyway, let's start out with the bag - I got this from Estee Lauder's holiday collection, and since it was so roomy (this is where they put the free brushes) I decided to use it all the time!

Blush - I use Nars' Deep Throat for everyday office use, but if I'm going out with friends I switch this to Orgasm! The brush, I got from the EL holiday collection, this was inside my bag originally.

Hand Cream - Jo Malone in Grapefruit. Actually, this is a container for body creme, but the actual hand and body lotion container is huge so I put them here when I ran out of the creme. My office is very cold, so I have to keep this with me all the time!

Powder foundation - Estee Lauder Double Wear. My mom got this for me because we have the same shade, so she thought it would be perfect for me. She was right, I've been using this for a long time to set my face, and even without liquid foundation this works very well. I've actually hit pan on this! Achievement!

Smash Box O-Glow - This is for the beach (or when I'm really late for work that I can't be bothered to put on stuff, this makes me look alive) and I love it because this has been with me for a long time, you only need pea sized drops to get your natural blush out!

Brows - MAC brow set, brush from my mom.  I don't usually bring this around, only on really long days when I know I need to touch up.

Eyeliner - Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On in Covet. I'm not fussy with eyeshadow for weekdays, so I use this under my eye to make it fancy. My eyeliner (Bobbi Brown Gel liner) stays on all day, but this melts in Manila heat (24/7 don't work in Manila, honey) so I have to bring it around all the time.

Touche Eclat - This is a godsend, but I don't think it works for everyone. My eyebags have been thanking this product since its conception.

Revlon Grow Luscious - My eyelashes are thick like cray, so one swipe is a-okay. One more and I will look like a drag queen!

NARS Jungle Red - My lipstick actually changes everyday, and this is what I chose to use today. As you know, the more outrageous, the better for me!
