Despite the record heat, I’ve really enjoyed playing and wearing makeup this summer. I was getting so annoyed looking at all of my makeup being wasted by me not wearing it. I will admit that, for the most part, I was really focusing on my skincare. However, my makeup and I are getting close again and I even carry some of it with me everyday. It’s a great time to do a makeup bag spill and show all the makeup products that I’ve been keeping in my makeup bag this summer.

For the past few months, I’ve been very diligent about not spending money on makeup, because I have enough. Even after I ran out of my holy grail, kind pricey MUFE foundation, I resisted the urge to replenish my stash. Instead, I pulled out all of my foundation and wore those instead. Thankfully, the current foundations I’ve been using are staple ones.
I’ve been saving money and space with these foundations, which is great. Keep reading to see the current foundations I have in rotation.
Currently, I’m still going through my phase of saving more money while spending less money. So far, so good. This new personal challenge involves every aspect of my life, including my beauty products. With the exclusion of mandatory needs such as shampoo, I haven’t bought any new make-up and beauty products in a minute. However, there are so many new beauty products out there that I’m low-key dying to try.
Although, at times, I want to try everything, I have to be a good girl. So, I’ve broken it down to 5 beauty products that recently came out or are coming out soon that I’m dying to try. Keep reading to see the ones that made the cut.
Yesterday, I mentioned that I overslept and had to rush to work without applying any makeup. I still can’t get over how I overslept, because it’s so not me. However, I omitted that I threw a few pieces of makeup into my bag to do my makeup at work. I’m so glad that I did, because those few pieces helped hide the that “rolled out of bed and straight to work” look. So, here are the list of my on-the-go makeup products that I throw in my purse when running late.
If you you’re interested in seeing what products I use when I’m running late and why, keep reading.
In 2016, I really fell in love with It Cosmetics under eye concealers, including the Bye Bye Under Eye concealer. Actually, the Bye Bye Under Eye concealer was one of my favorite products from 2016. Therefore, a friend decided to gift me with It! Cosmetics CC+ Eye Color Correcting Cream Concealer. I initially assumed they were the same product with one or two different uses. However, after having used both, I noticed that are some similarities and differences. Keep reading to see what I found out.
