What’s in My Purse?!

Hello and happy Thursday!

Today I want to show you what’s in my purse! I love watching ‘What’s in My Purse?’ videos on YouTube, so I decided I would write a blog post on it!

So let’s begin!

I have the large Michael Kors tote bag. It’s my favorite especially since I am always carrying tons of things. I decided to get this color combination, because it matches with both brown and black outfits.

I also got the matching wallet with the purse! I actually got these two items for my birthday two and half years ago!

I always carry a body spray, whether it’s in my purse or backpack. This is the travel size Night fragrance mist by Victoria’s Secret. It smells so good! Because of its ‘strong’ fragrance, I highly recommend this body spray as your go-to during a night out. The item retails at just $15, and are often sold as a “buy one, get one free” promotion. Cheap, and easy to carry? Definitely a must!

Now, we move onto one of the more ‘unusual’ items found in my purse. Being that it’s a tote bag, why not let it double as a backpack as well?! At the moment, I’m carrying along the book Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. For all you bookworms out there, this is a classic I highly suggest!

If you’re going to call South Texas home, sunglasses are a must! My absolute favorite sunglasses are these Ray Bans. I’ve had these going on five years now, which speaks volumes regarding their durability! They’re the aviator sunglasses, with the gold rim. I paid upwards of $150 for these, but times change, and lucky for you, they’re online at retail for only $125 now.

I have my ‘All I need is coffee and mascara’ journal. I actually won this at a baby shower and it has been so helpful! I am always scribbling in there, whether it’s my to do list or a blog post idea. It comes really in handy!

With so many things going on in our day-to-day lives, it’s easy to forget a pre-aranged appointment or school assignment. Cue the handy planner. Since I am going to school this semester I’m always planning out me weeks and assignments that I have to do. Very convenient to carry in my purse! (Yes, I know, 2017 is long gone. So time for an update!)

For makeup in my purse I do have quite a few products.

I have the Urban Decay Powder. I’m always carrying it around for little touch ups.

I have this cute double mirror also from Urban Decay. I received this item for free and I use it almost every single day!

I have a Nars lipstick its the shade ‘Orgasm’. I also received this item for free! It’s a light shimmer pink! Super cute!

I also have one of my favorite mascaras from Benefit Cosmetics! I am always carrying it in cast of emergencies!

I have a hair clip in here. As much as I love having my hair down I prefer my hair out of my face when I’m doing certain activities like studying or working out.

I am always hungry! Lol. I make sure to carry some type of snack in my purse. These are some biscuit from Belvita. They are my favorite and super delicious/nutritious.

That is it for What’s in my Purse I hope you enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed showing you my things!

Thanks for reading!

Mascara Review: They’re Real by Benefit Cosmetics

Hello and happy Thursday!

Today I wanted to write a review on the mascara They’re Real by Benefit Cosmetics.

I’ve always heard many amazing things about this mascara, so I decided to give it a try.

Now I’m the type of person who loves both length and fullness when it comes to my eyelashes.  But if I had to choose one I would take fullness over length!

If you’re looking for a mascara to give you that long and beautiful length that your eyelashes deserve than this mascara is totally for you!

I’m not going to lie, when I first tried this mascara I was disappointed. My bar was set so high for this product since I’ve heard nothing but good things, but after using it a couple of times and applying more than one coat I fell in love!

For the past couple of years I’ve only used one mascara and I guess I forgot that different mascaras give you different looks. I know it’s silly and so obvious, but I had fallen into a routine with this old mascara of mine. In the past I’ve purchased other mascaras and non have been as good as my old one until I got my hands on this one!

This mascara is definitely one of my top five beauty products!

The retail price for this product is $36, but I was able to get it for $24! It also came with a mini, which is a pretty awesome deal if you ask me! You can have one at home and toss the other in your purse/backpack for emergencies.

When applying this product make sure not to accidentally get some of the mascara on your eyelid, especially if you have eyeshadow on. It’s pretty tough to remove if you make a mistake.

Overall this product is definitely worth it! With the holidays around the corner this would make a great gift/stocking stuffer for anyone who is a mascara lover!

I hope you have a beautiful day and thank you for reading!

My Recent Purchases

Hello and Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having an awesome day today!

I recently purchased some makeup products online and I wanted to show you guys what I bought!

I usually never do online shopping, but my boyfriend was offering to buy me a couple of things so why not!

IMG_1934.jpg

I was in need of a new eye liner since my old one dried out. I have always been a huge fan of all matte products, so of course I had to get a matte eye liner!

IMG_1937.jpg

I decided to give the Nyx Matte liquid liner a try. This item was purchased for seven dollars! I have not used it yet, but I ‘m definitely planning on using it!

IMG_1940.jpg

I’m not one to but expensive mascaras mostly because I’m a firm believer that my seven dollar The Colossal mascara by Maybelline, can do the job of any high end mascara, but I decided to give this mascara a try. This mascara is They’re Real by benefit cosmetics and it is an awesome mascara for anyone who loves length in their lashes, which I mean who doesn’t?

IMG_1945.jpg

It also came with a mini mascara which I thought was pretty great considering how much beauty travel size products cost.

IMG_1952.jpg

The retail price for this product was $36 dollars and I purchased this product for $24. I hope to have a full review on this product hopefully in the near future! Fingers crossed!

IMG_1959.jpg

Last but not least, my favorite purchase! I purchased the Lancome Matter Shaker Liquid Lipstick. This product is totally new to me and I am so glad I purchased it!

IMG_1961.jpg

I got the shade 262 called Sea, Sand and Sun. It is a pinkish/nudish matte color and it’s so cute!

IMG_1967.jpg

This lipstick is a shaker, which means that in order to be able to get some of the product out you need to shake it.

IMG_1973.jpg

I purchased this item for $22 dollars, which I know is pretty pricey for a lipstick but I was very curious as to how this product worked and the color is gorgeous!

I hope you guys enjoyed reading my post on my recent purchases! I hope you have a great day and make it a good one!
