What's New in my Makeup Bag

I try to reshuffle the contents of my makeup bag every now and again, so I thought I'd share some new additions that I've been loving lately.

Bare Minerals Natural Sunscreen SPF 30* (review)
Although I attempt to remember to include sunscreen in my skincare routine every morning, sometimes my mind is just too fuzzy and sleepy, so I've popped this into my makeup bag to remind me to do it when I'm on the go. It's a clever brush-on mineral sunscreen that you twist up and then buff into the skin   

Korres Liquid Lipstick in Soft Pink
I featured this in my favourites last month and I'm still loving it.  It's the perfect everyday shade of pink and the formula is completely non-sticky and weightless on.  

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise
I finally caved and begged a friend to bring me one of these back on her recent trip to New York.  The hype is totally justified - if you want the most natural looking blush on the planet, then this is the one for you.  It sheers out beautifully and seems impossible to get wrong.

James Read Sleep Mask Tan*
One of my favourite products from Latest In Beauty's Hip & Healthy Summer Glow Box was this incredible self tanner for the face.  I've always struggled to find a decent product for the job as many left me looking too orange or dark, but this is absolutely spot on for me.  

Daniel Sandler Retexturising Face Primer* (link
A lovely oil-free gel serum primer that preps the skin for foundation and has the added bonus of SPF 20 too. As it's silicone based, I use it sparingly (a little goes a long way with it anyhow) but it does such a great job of keeping foundation in place, making the skin look more revived and so far I haven't had any breakout issues after using it for a month.  The skinny tube also doesn't take up much space in my makeup bag so it's a handy extra to have in there.

  1. Daniel Sandler primer sounds perfect, definitely going on my wishlist. :) X


  2. The Josie Maran cheek gelees are life!

    Question: what kind of foundation are you using? I usually use primer with liquid or cream consistencies, but that BM sunscreen is a powder so I'm wondering if they layer well.

    1. They are amazing, I want more!

      I use both mineral and liquid foundations and the BM sunscreen works well over both. If I have a liquid base on, I'll just use the BM instead of powder :)

  3. The cheek gelee looks sooooo bright in the pot! Is it much sheerer when applied?xx

    1. LOTS sheerer! Looks really natural and pretty on :) xx

  4. I have to go try out a liquid lipstick. I almost picked one up the other day. This looks gorgeous.
    Bright Shiny

    1. I love liquid lipsticks, you get the best of both worlds of a lipstick and a gloss :)

  5. I don't think I've heard of a brush-on mineral sunscreen before, how genius?!
