Inside My Beauty Bag

BY: Favin the Maven | Dec 23, 2013
Inside My Beauty BagI carry around a huge purse, and sometimes, I wonder what I even keep in it. The other day, I dumped it out on my desk and sorted through the contents—turns out, I’m a walking beauty counter! Here’s what I keep in stock. Lips * Aquaphor Healing Ointment ($5.99 on This is my go-to when the winter does major damage on my lips. It also works wonders on dry, cracked hands. * Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick ($2.39 on Amazingly effective and versatile—you can also put it on your hands, face, and any other place that needs TLC! * Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 in Mango ($9): I love the tropical scent. * MAC Cremesheen Glass in You’ve Got It ($20): I like to layer this creamy, nude gloss over a stain or lipstick, or wear it solo for a subtle sheen. Hands * Johnson and Johnson’s 24 Hour body lotion: I love the fresh scent, and the travel-size tube fits right in my bag. [Editor’s note: This lotion has been discontinued; try Ahava travel size mineral hand cream ($8) instead.] * Essie Apricot cuticle oil ($8.50): My cuticles are moisturized and neat-looking thanks to this all-natural oil, even though secretly, I bite them. Shhhh. * Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer in Sweet Pea ($1.75): For anytime I ride the train. Face * Jordana Cosmetics’ black eyeliner ($1.29): The best less-than-$2 I’ve ever spent. * MAC bronzer in Bronze: I use this as my all-over powder. * MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW30 ($18): This bad boy is thick enough to cover tattoos. Plus, SPF 35! * Fendi sunglasses model FS5284 003 (a lot, I think): My boyfriend gave me these. I didn’t complain. Back to Favin the Maven
