Monday Morning Gossip & Weekending

Linking up with Leann Kimberlee for Monday Morning Gossip.
Linking up with B Loved BostonChampagne and Surburbs for Weekending.

Last week, I was just so busy I decided to stay home over the weekend.
I needed to relax and rest.
And by relaxing, I mean clean my house.
Nothing like having a clean house and having everything in order.

So I thought I would blog about my makeup bag.
I'm somewhat of a makeup junkie and constantly trying new stuff.

Here is what I'm currently using.

Before I put on any makeup, I wash my face with cold water.
Pat dry and then put on my moisturizer, La Mer. 
Yes, La Mer is pricey but for me so worth it.
It makes my skin feel and look fabulous.
Cannot put a price tag on that.

Next up is my eye cream, All about Eyes by Clinique.
I have tried so many but I keep going back to this stuff.
It keeps my eye area hydrated and minimizes my dark circles.

I let my face dry for about five minutes then I put on my foundation primer.


What I like about it, is that it makes my face feel cool.
Literally, my face feels cool all day.


Love how nicely all the colors work together and they stay on all day long. 


I like it but I don't love it. 
It does last all day and doesn't run.
However, colorwise,I still prefer the one by Makeup Forever.


Makes my lashes nice and full. 
Personally, I think this is one the best mascara's on the market. 


I love how light this foundation is. However, it offers full coverage.
It really does make my skin look radiant.


This creamy concealer hides my dark circles but also illuminates my eye area.
I didn't think I would love this concealer as much as I do.
Oh and it stays put and doesn't melt under my glasses.


Cult favorite
Love how natural it looks.
Totally is worth the money.
It really does brighten my face.

Eye Brighter
This is a brightening concealer. 
I use it right under my dark circles and at the corners of my eyes.
Makes me eyes look bright and not tired.


Love this stuff. 
It not only helps set my makeup but I also love the matte finish it has.
I also use a little under my eyes to set my concealer.
Thanks Bianca for recommending it!!


It brightens my whole face and stays on for hours.
Also, it's so fab that you really don't need a lip liner with it.
It does have a matching lip liner but I did not buy it.
For the time being, I have retired from using a lip liner.


Put a little over my lipstick. Makes my lips nice and shiny.
Not too sticky and not to shiny.

Makeup Finishing Spray 

A quick spray sets my makeup for the day.
This stuff is similar to the one by Urban Decay. 
In fact, they make the one by Urban Decay.
For whatever reason, I prefer this one.
Personally, I think it works better.

What's in your makeup bag??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Mree

  1. Pretty makeup picks! Hope you had a great weekend!

  2. My make up routine is just soooo boring! A little BB cream on the days that my skin is really looking bad, some powder foundation, a nude shimmer eye shadow and mascara! I wish I knew how to apply make up so that I'd venture out more!!

  3. So I read an article in this month's Glamour about NARS (like the actual guy lol) and I decided I need to invest in more items from the make-up collection!! I use the same concealer and love it!! I want to try the Marc Jacobs foundation!

  4. I love the make up forever full coverage concealer--- seriously the best concealer I've ever tried!!

  5. Your Lily bag is super cute!!!

    I think I need to get that Naked palette, I've seen it everywhere.

  6. The UD Naked palette are by far my favorite eye shadows to wear every day! I need to try some of those NARS products!

  7. Ohhhh I love this post so much and I'm bookmarking it. I like to the point makeup reviews and this is perfect. I like your apply and then wait for the start. I am the same way....primer then has to like work it's magic I feel like. I haven't tried that YSL mascara yet but I've heard great things! Definitely loved this post and your layout of it!!

  8. As you probably know I have that Urban Decay Naked palette and I LOVE it! I use it every day and I use all the colors.

  9. I love the Naked Palette. I don't have any NARS eyeshadows. How do you like the colors in them?

  10. I'm waaay out of the beauty loop - I had no idea MJ made foundation!

    Thanks for linking up for MMG :)

  11. Love the picks you have for your makeup! I love NARS orgasm. xo

  12. my makeup bag is TINY; as in so tiny i don't even carry one anymore. the only thing i bring and use is lipbalm so that's the only thing in my purse even related to 'makeup'.

    my makeup arsenal is pretty small; a few eyeliners, a bronzer, a blush, 2 lipsticks, 2 glosses, translucent powder, concealer and corrector.... that's it. no mascara, i don't even own any eyeshadow palettes, no foundation.
