Me & My Accessories: My Cosmetic Bag

Today I want to share with you the contents of my cosmetic bag, and the products that I rely on daily to keep me fabulous! You can see the contents of my purse here, but I am planning on updating with a new post now that I am working full time.
 
The bag itself I won from Theresa of Delightfully Darling’s mark. giveaway, and came filled with a plethora of samples and 4 glorious lip glosses! I love pink. Obviously. And I love animal print.  So you can see that I am in love with my animal print cosmetic bag! It’s the perfect size for what I carry around too which doesn’t hurt.
 

Contents:

  1. My Tagalongs Tool Card for Ladies, $8, here. I bought this at TJMaxx or Ross and I think I paid $3 or less. I cannot tell you how many times this sucker has come in handy. It’s the size of a credit card, and the width of about 2-3 credit cards, tiny! The scissors are my favorite part. They only have one finger loop, so they’re a little awkward to use, but it’s convenient when there’s nothing else.
  2. Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids, ~$4 Target. I picked these up a few months ago because they are absolutely adorable. If you have to use a band aid, it should be one of lace or sequins!
  3. Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish in Sweet as Candy. $1.99, Ulta. I have yet to use this nail polish, but I love the fact that I carry this and a top coat around with me at all times in case of an emergency. Yes, I consider bare nails an emergency at times. I say that, yet I’ve been rocking nekkid nails about 1 week out of each month to let my nails breathe and to treat them. The small size makes it ideal for a cosmetic bag, and the pale pink is a universally flattering color.
  4. Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, $5-7, drugstores. I try to make a habit of applying this twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. I have a few cuticle creams, but this is the best so far. Again, the small tin container and the price are perfect for me.
  5. Nivea Crème Lotion. $.99, Target I picked up a couple of these a few months back and am currently on my second tin. The lotion is thick and is perfect to use during the cold winter months on dry, chapped hands. It’s a bargain at $.99, and the small size makes it perfect for carrying in your purse.
  6. Philosophy Lip Gloss in ‘pretty please’, $3, Big Lots. I meant to do a post on the philosophy products I picked up at Big Lots, but it slipped my mind. I still have the pictures, so I still have time… I looked this up and you can purchase here for $17.50! Woah. I’d say that’s a great find! It’s small, it’s pink lip gloss, and I love it. That’s enough of a description, right? I also picked up some face makeup, powder, and illuminator at Big Lot’s for $3.
  7. Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Cuticle Pen, $6, drugstores. Even though I carry Burt’s Bees cuticle cream, I like to carry this one as well for convenience.  The tip is a brush, which is much neater than rubbing on the cream. As far as growth results, I’ll be honest, I haven’t noticed a considerable difference.  Then again I haven’t used it every day either.
  8. Goody Hair Ties. $2.50, Target. Both of these hair ties are by Goody and I purchased them at Target. I usually wear my hair down, but I like having the option to pull it back from my face with a cute hair tie. Neither of these are going to hold your hair back tight, especially if you have thick hair, but they’re cute and do the job.
  9. Zoya Hot Lips in Kiss Kiss. $6, Zoya Through my ‘Share the Love’ rewards points through Zoya, I was able to pick out a bottle of polish and a lip gloss for free, responsible only for the shipping. The first time I did this I went with my fail-safe lip gloss color: a pale pink, and ended up throwing it into my lip gloss drawer, never to be used. This time I decided I wanted to go with a statement color after having been inspired by Megan from The Frugalista Diaries post.
  10. benefit BAD gal lash mascara. $19, Sephora. I did not pay $19 for a mascara, I received it in a birchbox a few months ago. I figure the best way to freshen up my face is to carry mascara and lipgloss at all times. It’s come in handy! Nothing takes me from Walmart-fresh on the weekends to Target-chic better! I don’t see what makes this mascara worth $19 but I love that it fits perfectly in my bag.


What are some of your beauty essentials that you carry with you?

    5. Budget friendly services - The cost of the treatment should be budget friendly. Consult the chosen dentist before settling down for the actual treatment procedure.

    6. The handbag is really useful for those who carry many smartphones or fashion accessories with them. The fashion accessories help to look trendy. i also purchased some fashion handbag from Target coupon codes and get best deals on all accessories with latest discount coupons using promo codes and save maximum money.
