What's In My Makeup Bag 2014 Edition

I am already due for a new makeup bag considering this is actually a pencil case, but for now it's a pretty good makeup bag. I don't tend to bring eyeshadow, eyeshadow primer, BB base or eyelash curlers around anymore, it ended up being too bulky and I never used them.
First off in the kitty bag of happiness, concealer and a brush that is probably definitely not for concealers but I don't caare!
Essence 16h stay all day long-lasting concealer of lies
 And next up, blush! I never usually reapply blush but I carry it anyway??? For the one in one million chance that I do decide to reapply it.
Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher #2 Strawberry Choux
 I aallso carry my clear pact even though I tend to not reapply this either.. well... And a brush because it goes on too cakey with the pad in it.
Tonymoly Cats Wink Clear Pact #1 Clear Skin & Essence brush
 I also tend to carry a type of chapstick, but hello kitty version.... So it's not really chapstick but I can't think of another word that works for it at the moment plus whatever lip product I have on for the day - today being lip tint + gloss.
Tonymoly Tony Tint #1 Cherry Pink, Hello Kitty Sweet Lips Yummy Raspberry, Essence XXXL Shine lipgloss
 Aaaannd BB cream, which I do in fact also reapply.
Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit #2 Light Beige
 And various eye/around eye products, which I also only sometimes reapply but it's there juuust in case. I've been using Dolly Wink eyeliner lately because I've run out of my other one. ;;


Dolly Wink eyeliner in black, Etude House Drawing Eye Brow #??? and Tonymoly Cats Wink Mascara Volume & Long Lash
And FOTD because this is a makeup post, right? Right. THIS WAS THE ONLY SEMI NICE PICTURE I TOOK TODAY GOOD LORD

Marc Jacobs Honey Perfume

 SO I am finally back after what, four months? of being completely unable to write reviews. I kept trying every week but just wasn't feeling it but NOW I AM BACK. WITH PERFUME.
This is one of the first "expensive" perfumes I've owned, I actually have wanted it for a while but could never justify spending more than $15 on perfume. BUT my mum recently went over to Mexico for a work ~thing~ and asked before she left if I wanted perfume when she was over there since it's cheaper, my answer was "if you can find something that smells like flowers or candy, I'm in." and she came back with this which I was... Not expecting.
 Super cute logo on the side~ I'm not usually a fan of "bitter" types of perfumes that hurt your nose but this one is pretty okay because after a while it just kind of smells a bit like flowers. Also, needless to say I love the bottle so much oh my god am I a sucker for cute packaging.
It's just so cute I swear ;~;

It also came in a huuuge box that was kind of unnecessary but it was still super cute packaging so I'm fine with that... I guess.
I wouldn't suggest this for anyone that doesn't like smelling their 50 year old aunt who wears 10x too much perfume and it chokes you, it smells kinda like that at first. I mostly just wanted this for the bottle, is that bad???

LIKES
  • super, super cute packaging
  • smells pretty good 
  • cute PACKAGING
  • luckily the bitter old lady-esque smell that reminds me of my mothers friends goes away after a while and it just smells like flowers

DISLIKES 
  • it cost her $64 and I saw it in a store earlier this week for AU$89
  • it has the bitter smell at first which hurts my feelings LOL
  • huge box? why? 
  • I'm too stingy to rebuy it if it ever gets used up
