[Follow me in my LTK to see other details in this post.]
Oh my goodness gracious! This has been a post I’ve had requested a lottttttt over the last 6 months since I purchased this bag. I get a lot of questions about it – I think because it seems small but I carry it a lot so it makes ya wonder just how functional or practical it is, ya know?! Well, I love this bag and I have a few new faves from Sephora so I decided to just combine the two topics into a 2-in-1! I’ll kind of break down what summer beauty products I’ve been loving [and re-mention a few old favorites that you guys have loved a lot] + show how much I can fit into my favorite little backpack.
Just a heads up that I do a lot of Sephora Hauls regularly and the last post I did was full of some products I need to re-shout-out because I’ve re-purchased some of them and I have had many of you tell me that you loved them as well. Like, the Fenty powder + the Benefit highlighter ‘Cookie’ + Farsali Setting spray = GOOD makeup [all talked about more thoroughly in that last post]. Also, I wanted to mention the Sephora Beauty Insider program! It is free to join and every dollar you spend helps you earn points for future beauty finds!
Also! Watch my IGTV to see a video of me showing the bag and what all is inside!
WHATS IN MY BAG FROM SEPHORA
#1. MATTE VELVET SKIN BLURRING POWDER FOUNDATION || I discovered this through Casey Holmes’ YouTube Channel and noticed how well it worked for her so I immediately got it and I love it. It’s a 12 hour wear [!!] and its full coverage and it is a blurring powder that doesn’t cake or get gross! I wear it alone on days when I’m home with the kids but need to run errands and just want to cover up dark spots, ya know? But I also use it lightly on days when we are shooting outside in the heat and I want to keep my makeup matte & in place! [Shade is Y375 but it is too dark.]
#2. HOURGLASS HIGH SHINE VOLUMIZING LIP GLOSS || I have a lot of glosses honestly and really didn’t need more BUT I love a good, super shiny and volumizing gloss in the summertime! This one is a beautiful and looks good alone or on top of lipstick. It is super shiny which makes your lips look a little fuller! [Shade: ‘Child’]
#3. FENTY BEAUTY LIP BALM & EYE LINER || I got the lip balm in PR w/the SCRUB and I love both SO much! I really like the Fenty brand in general honestly. I had a freak out moment when they added me to their PR list because it’s a brand that really makes a lot of good products! I purchased the eye liner on my own upon the recommendation of Tati [You Tuber]. It is easy to use and stays locked down which is a huge deal for me – I have worn the same two eye liners for the last two years straight! The balm is just really nice – it feels good and smells good, too!
#4. COVER FX BRONZER + HIGHLIGHTER || I got this bc I am sucker for a good bronzer! I try new ones ALLLL of the time and rarely ever fall in love with a new one. BUT I got this on a whim and love it – it works for contouring and for bronzing. I have not tried the highlighter shade – it looks a bit dark but it is really pretty. They also make these in blushes and I was tempted to get the blushes but I started off with bronzer and I may go back and get a blush now that I know how pigmented and beautiful they are – blushes are HERE. [Shade: Suntan Bronze]
#5. MARC JACOBS INSTANT BLURRING BEAUTY POWDER || Anything that says blurring always catches my attention – love that word!??♀️ Ha! But I do think a lot of times it doesn’t really work, ya know?! I got this in the lightest shade just to sweep over my under eyes and porous areas lightly once my makeup is done! This is just a good thing to keep in your bag if you need a refresher – but not for coverage! #1 is great for coverage whereas this is good for a quick and light clean up! It’s good for being on the go and controlling shine! [Shade: Accomplice]
#6. FARSALI SETTING SPRAY || I promise you this stuff is a total game changer. I know I’ve talked about it a lot so I won’t go into detail but holy cow! It is good- everyone that I recommended it to personally has come back to me to tell me how much they love it!
