I got 99 problems, but chapped lips ain’t 1.

I just cleaned out my purse and found an alarming amt of lip products.   Seriously, who needs this many lip products???  I guess I do 🙂

That said, I maintain, I love my Dior Glow and would never downsize that one.  I will leave one for my office though.

The One Love pot is more of a lip care/all over moisture–clearly I need to keep that one!

The Laura and YSL are great colors for work/webcam–these I absolutely have to keep.

The Stainiac is a lip/cheek stain.  This is a just in case of emergency.  I have to keep this one for sure.

The Sugar I keep in the rare event that my SHH needs a lip balm that isn’t glossy or glittery.  @#AlwaysPrepared

And the Clinique is the only true gloss.  Its the closest color to my own lip color so I like it a lot.

What’s in my bag???

Oh, thanks for asking!  Its been a long time since I have been so consistent with what’s in my purse.

So ever since my first facial, I have cut back significantly on what I put on my face.  Thus cutting back the things I carry in my purse!

I am proud to say these are the only beauty products I keep in my purse currently:

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter:  You might remember this purchase from my Pre-Vacation post.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the scent!  It reminds me of my honeymoon:)  I love that its all natural and that its a good size for a hand lotion in my purse.

Boscia Blotting Papers:  Since my facial, my skin has been very different.  I could blame the vag cream on my face 🙂 but I love it too much:)  MONISTAT FOREVER!  That said, I have noticed that around 1 everyday my face gets really shiny.  REALLY REALLY SHINY (I think it may have something to do with having my heater on high under my desk).  I can go thru 3 papers in one blotting…that’s a lot for me.  These lil guys are a life saver.  I love them and I feel like they have lasted FOREVER.

One Love Organics Skin Savior:  This is the best BirchBox product yet!!!!  Granted its only my second box and I was super unimpressed with box one 🙂  STILL, I will likely purchase this after I finish this tub.  I use it on my hands, and my nails, and my lips.  Seriously, like everyday.  I love how fresh and light it smells.  LOVE IT.

Last but certainly not least….Dior Lip Glow.  I LOVE IT.  I get so many compliments about this product!  I LOOOOOVE IT.

Side Note, my SHH bought me that purse for my birthday 🙂 Kate Spade is my bestie.

 

What’s in my VACATION makeup bag???

ONE MORE SLEEP!

My vacation makeup bag isn’t all that different from my everyday makeup right now.

Over the weekend I scored some AWESOME Sephora gift cards for my Bday!  I did some updating:)

I am a big believer in scent triggered memory.  While we were on our honeymoon in Kauai, I found this smell and fell in love it smells like chocolate, orange and HEAVEN. I like to wear it on vacation so when I smell it later I will associate it with these memories:)

On vacation, eyes are important to me.  I want to look awake, but not over done.  I picked this mascara up yesterday and am VERY impressed with the results so far.  We will see how well it holds up on vacation before it gets an official review.

Eyes: DiorShow New Look

Eye shadow on a beach vacation seems unlikely to me.  This was also part of my birthday gift card purchases.  The packaging is small enough to fit in my makeup case so it made the cut.  We will see if this gets used at all.

Eyes: Two Faced Natural Eye

I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with this cream blush.  CACTUS FLOWER by Nars is amazing.  It has the nicest golden/coral color and I love the consistency.   Its perfect for vacation!

Cheeks: Nars Cactus Flower Cream Blush

I have mentioned in other posts that I really love highlighter.  Highlighter is perfect for vacation for me because it allows for a barely there shimmer.  It also helps me look nice and awake.

Highlighter: Tarina Taranitino Dream Hyperlight

I LOVE LIPS!  AND I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS STUFF!  I wear it every single day.

Dior Lip Glow

It’s in the high to mid 80s in Cabo this week.  It will be perfectly humid, but not uncomfortable.  Just in case, Boscia Blotting Linens…No one wants to look shiny.  I also like to use these before I deplane…it helps me feel refreshed.

SUNSCREEN SUNSCREEN SUNSCREEN!

PTR SPF 30

AND

SUPER FLUID UV DEFENSE SPF 50--TURNS TO POWDER

I am super duper serious about preventing any more sun damage.  When I get back I am going to start the treatment of my HIDEOUS sun spots.  So in the mean time I am planning to protect them as much as possible.  That said:

It won't fit in my makeup bag, but this is ESSENTIAL to my skin care.

WOO HOO VACATION!
