make-up is my war paint

What’s inside my makeup kit?

Yeah, I always carry this much shit in my bag. -Allison, The Breakfast Club
Sorry, couldn’t resist a good The Breakfast Club reference! This post, obviously, is about the cosmetics I bring nearly everywhere.
e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzer duo – I have yet to review it, but to give you a quick overview, it’s a decent product for an affordable price. Used when I have time to contour.

Watsons retractable blush brush – For applying the e.l.f. b&b duo, mainly. It feels really scratchy on the face (ugh), but it’s cheap, so…

Watsons breath strips – Because 90% of my job is talking to applicants and I would hate to have stale breath then!

Cinema Secrets Ultralucent Setting Powder – Possibly my most favorite thing in the universe. I’m almost out, so I’m wondering whether to try (the more expensive, but more gorgeous and travel-friendly) Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder.

Clean & Clear Oil Control Film – For a quick grease fix.

Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm – Way too thick for me. It doesn’t feel like my lips are soft, just heavy and greasy. I’m just finishing off this tube then I’ll try other options.

Lipstick – I try to keep my lippies in rotation. This one is my usual office color, Revlon Super Lustrous in Wine with Everything.

Watsons lip brush – Again, super cheap but does the job.

e.l.f. Eyebrow Kit – The product that converted me into a brow believer. Lasts all day and cheap as chips, too! My only complaint is that it’s a bit harder to use than brow pencils, but with the quality, I’d still go for this.

So there’s the contents of my kikay kit. If you’d like to post yours as well, send me a link in the comments so I can check it out! 🙂
