I’m always curious to see what anyone has stashed in their purse or on their vanity, just lets me know their most loved products. I don’t mean staples like foundations, I mean the more exciting (atleast for me) lip products or eyeshadows or highlighters. I love snooping on other peoples makeup, guilty as charged ! I am one curious cat !

When I snoop a ‘what’s in my bag’ or ‘travel makeup essentials’ posts, I get a cuppa coffee and settle in taking in all their magic makeup absolute favorites. So, I do hope you have some tea or coffee or wine, whatever you love, with you for this read.

Most days, I try and experiment and use different palettes or lip colors. But, these, they are my favorites currently (I mean formula wise and textures, not necessarily the colors shown here, though I do love them)

  1. Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palettes: Shown here are The Dolce Vita and The Golden Goddess. Those names. I die ! These are the more neutral quads in her collection, and you can go from natural day time glam to smoky bombshell with each of the quads. I just love the whole vibe of her collection. Everything looks so chic and sophisticated. And I think personally, her eyeshadow quads are some of the very best. These make my top 3 eyeshadow brands list. And I love glitter.
  2. Kevyn Aucoin The Matte Lipcolor: Shown here are Forever and Infinite. I love matte lipsticks. LOVE ! I look back at my college days pictures and cringe when I used to wear glosses and shiny lipsticks. Hence, why I am totally loving the matte lip trend. I have tried a lot of matte lipsticks, both high end luxury and drugstore, and I come back to these all the time. There’s a beautiful shade range, and more importantly such a good variation of nude shades.
  3. Tom Ford Cream Eyeshadow and Glitter: Shown here is the eye duo in Golden Peach. These. I.LOVE. THEM. These cost me a kidney, no joke. They are SO worth it though. The colors, the longevity and the way they look on the eyes. You need these. Period.
  4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Highlighters: Shown here is So Hollywood. I recently tried the Glow Kits, and I still preferred these over them (I might change my mind later, I’m finicky with highlighters like that). But these, oh my word ! They are SO glowy and beautiful. Ugh. Angel skin. I tried the colors, but this is the only one I have, as I felt this would be what I would get most use out of. This is my go to highlighter most days, I just beam !

I would love to know what are your must haves, did any of these make your list ?

    Such a great array of summer tome shades that get me excited about summer makeup!
    I adore Dolce Vita by Charlotte Tilbury as I think it’s a palette that seems to suit everyone and makes you feel very glam at the same time! Kelly xx
