What’s in my makeup bag?

Hi there!

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m girly and love makeup and beauty products.  I’m always experimenting with new brands and trying different products.

While my makeup favorites change often, the ones below are the products that are currently happily living in my makeup bag.

And in case you missed it, be sure to check out my “What’s in my medicine cabinet?” post!


Josie Maran Argan Pressed Powder in Natural ($30)

Josie Maran Argan Blend Concealer in Sand ($28)

Josie Maran Argan Color Sticks in Rosey and Petal Pink ($22/each)

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara ($19)

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Dollface ($25)

Tarte Smooth Operator Tinted Moisturizer ($36)

Josie Maran Eye Liner ($18)

Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment ($18)

Korres Lip Butter in Quince ($12)

Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer ($28)


In case you haven’t noticed, I’m kind of obsessed with Josie Maran’s products, and I actually do not see that changing much any time soon.  They are incredible!  Plus, Josie is super duper sweet, caring, gorgeous, and pretty much my hero.

The Jose Maran Argan Lip Treatment is a great conditioner to put on your lips at night.  When I wake up in the morning after doing so, my lips are silky smooth.   The Argan Illuminizer is perfect for giving you a subtle dewy glow (even when you feel less than glowy).  I’ve tried quite a bit of her products so far, and I plan to try her foundation very soon as well.

If you get anything by Tarte, I highly recommend the Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush and the Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara.  The blush colors are so beautiful and really do last all day.  As for the mascara, it is super lengthening, doesn’t clump, and has great staying power.  It is probably the best mascara that I’ve ever used!

However, if you’re looking for a mascara that makes your lashes appear thicker, try Josie Maran’s mascara.  I actually have that one as well. 😉


The next part of this series will be “What’s in my shower?”, so stayed tuned!

Since I’ve received such great feedback on these posts so far, I’m going to start a blog tag.  So, if you have a blog, you’re tagged to do a “What’s in my…?” post to let everyone know what non-toxic products you’re using.  If you do the tag, please link to it in the comments section!  Also, be sure to tag 3 other people in your post, so we can keep this thing going!

Have a great day!

      For a tinted moisturizer, there is actually pretty decent coverage! I’d say light to medium. If you need more coverage, I heard that the Josie Maran tinted moisturizer is great. 🙂
