This is a dedication to my dearly beloved and recently lost makeup bag, not to mention all the things inside. I was so so so heart-broken when I realised that it must have accidently slipped out of my bag on the Virgin train from Glasgow. After a short grieving period, I decided to write some quick reviews about the things I carried with me and lost. After this I’ll let bygones be bygones and move on with my life.
1. Charlotte Tilbury Make-up Bag (£15 HERE is the updated version “GIVE A WOMAN THE RIGHT & MAKE-UP SHE CAN CONQUER THE WORLD”)

I loved my gorgeous makeup bag from Charlotte Tilbury Makeup (for more detailed information check HERE). To reminded myself on the message of “EVERY WOMAN DESERVES A MAN TO RUIN HER LIPSTICK, NOT HER MASCARA”, I actually purchased 2 of this makeup bags, which shows how much I love it LOL. So, now the spare one comes in pretty handy and lessens my sorrow.
2. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm (£29 HERE)
It’s lucky that I stocked up a
few of these pretty little
things last Christmas. So
I’m covered on this matter.
A full review of it is available HERE.
3. Benefit They’re Real Mascara (£19.50 HERE)
Honestly, I don’t feel too sad about losing this product except the feeling of loss itself. You can say I’m picky in terms of mascaras. I’ve not been blessed with long and curly eyelashes; on the contrary, my eyelashes are short and straight. Since they will never get close to those full fluttering effects like on mascara adverts without false eyelashes, I don’t really fall in love with mascaras easily.
At the same time I think I can be pretty easily pleased with mascaras, because the only things I ask for from mascara is to not smudge everywhere, not clump up or dry up quickly. The performance of the Benefit they’re real mascara was completely opposite to my desires. Having said that it is easy to apply and the wand is interesting and different.
4. Fashionista Eyebrow Powder Kit By MUA (Available at Superdrug £7.99)
It was a random purchase and it later turned down to be a good buy. The price of this kit is really friendly and the payoff of it is not bad at all. There are better eyebrow products out there, but this one is definitely worth the value for money.
5. Maybelline Colour tattoo in On & on bronze (£4.99 at Boots)
This one from Maybelline is doubtlessly my most frequently used cream eyeshadow. This colour particularly, On & on bronze, takes my heart. (That’s the reason I quickly went to Boots and got a new one… and some other shades…) It is very smooth and leaves a beautiful bronzed sheen on the eyelids. You can use it on its own or apply it as an eyeshadow base to guarantee a longer lasting effect.
6. Topshop Brightener + 7. Topshop Black Gel Eyeliner Pot
I have reviewed these two products on one of my previous posts along with some other beauty products I’ve used from Topshop. Check it out at HERE.
