The Essentials for a Month

It's FINALLY happening people, this house move I keep mentioning is coming Monday and I am...SEMI packed and ready!

I'm quite excited for the move, but with the realization of having no current vanity (needs to be purchased) and more important house purchases to be made, it may be a while until I receive a little space to apply my daily slap.

In preparation of all my make up goodies being stored in a box until a permanent solution is purchased, I have gathered together my current favorites in a convenient make up bag. My "All the Stuff I need to look human is here" bag. 
Will be making sure not to lose this on the move!

A peek at the contents of my current favorites:

Fresh High Noon which is a tinted primer I mix with my Clarins Sunscreen (new LOVE and worth the hype). I'm losing my tan quickly but I know this is on it's last legs and want to use up this darker than my skin shade before I become too pale for it. 
NARS Translucent Crystal powder to set the very glowy finish the Fresh product delivers. 
Jo Malone Nectarine and Honey Blossom cologne which is my favorite scent ever.
Chanel Terre Ambre Bronzer which is a bit dark but goes with the Fresh Primer well.
Marc Jacobs Lola being my new must have orange red. Might I add, the only orange red that doesn't make my hands look like an old granny who has retired to Boca Raton.
Bobbi Brown Gel liner in Caviar ink for my tight line. Mac's Brule, Wedge, Print, and Lorac Moonstone - these four shades are more than I need for my lifestyle. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze which can't seem to leave my side, Shu Curlers and my very loved Mason Pearson.

Anastasia's Brow Whiz in Soft Brown being no longer the best match for my current hair color being cooled down with Sonia Kashuk's tinted brow gel (drugstore gem). NARS concealers for both the face and under eyes, YSL Shocking mascara, and my new favorite lip product of the moment, NARS Satin Lip Pencil is Isola Bella. I don't speak about lip products much because I'm not as interested in them but this one MWAH! What a shade! It looks more brown swatched but on my lips it is the most opaque peachy nude that seems to go with every look I pair it with. New pocket book must have!

So that's it! All my current must haves as we shop to make our house a home. 
Stay tuned if you would like to see some home updates! :) 


  1. It's finally happening! Can't wait to see the home updates post :D

  2. I always love reading your posts! The Shu eyelash curler is my favourite, it does the job so well. I've been eyeing the Mason Pearson hairbrush for so long, ever since you did a review on it- but I just don't have the heart so spend so much money on a hairbrush! Lola looks like a perfect red :) Definitely would love to see some home updates too!

  3. LOVE your faves you've picked! I think I need that LORAC powder. The Hourglass ones put too much pigment in them I've decided. I just want a glowy finish-not a pink or peach face lol!
    Good luck with the move!

  4. Lovely pics! Very jealous of everything :)
