What’s In My Makeup Bag?


Hey guys and girls!!

Today I want to show you what’s in my makeup bag. Since this is not my travel makeup bag, I have just a few things in here. If you’re a student you’re going to absolutely love what I have to show – it’s super affordable! I have to move a lot so these are just some affordable products because I don’t want my fancy makeup to be ruined while it’s in my bag.
This will not be a big, fancy post reviewing every single thing I have, instead I’ll just show you and you tell me what you would like to see a review of, deal?




First of all, I have to start with this foundation. It’s so cool! It covers spots and all imperfections, really. It’s Vichy Dermablend and it’s damn perfect if you have an irregular skin. I have it on my bag for any emergency that I might have. Especially if I have a meeting and I have to travel over there. I don’t like to wear makeup while I travel, so having this foundation with me is like having a life saviour in my bag. I want to try their new formula, the Vichy Dermablend 3D but I haven’t found it yet.




This Catrice eyeliner is amazing! Fist because it’s super thin, second because it’s super black. Because it’s so easy to use this (like a pen, really), I love to have it on my bag so I can use it even in the car and (desperately try to) pull out that cat eye anywhere I’m at.




Baby wipes! Because I might need to wipe my pretty little hands and… baby smell it’s just the best smell!



A mascara, sure, because, ya know, if I might need a eyeliner on the go, then I definitely will need a mascara. It’s just pure math, don’t you think? ๐Ÿ˜‰



A little mirror by Primark, because one can not do a proper eyeliner, or anything else without a mirror, and also you never know when you might have what I call a “green-situation”, if you know what I mean.


Tissues, no need to explain this.




This balm and I are like a match made in heaven. It leaves my lips so hydrated and so soft, it’s amazing!



Of course that one does not live without the other, so I always have this beautiful, beautiful, beautiful Sleek’s matte lipstick in the shade of “Dare”. It’s so dark and so beautiful, plus it feels sooo good on the lips, it’s crazy! It also has vitamin E, which is great.



Lastly, a nail file because you never know when you might need one, and a broken nail it’s a pain in the arse.



That’s it! Let me know which product has caught your eye the most and what you would like me to review!

Don’t forget to follow me on Snapchat @ellaivoire and I see you guys Friday!

    Cute girl bag with make up kit inside. I seldom use mascara but I have it too in my make up kit. I’m amused about this nail file since I rarely see this in y friends make up kit ๐Ÿ™‚

    We got the same thing. I can’t go out without baby wipes (well maybe because I am a mom already) but really, I really find it essential in all means whether you are a mom or a simply a single woman who has no obligations in life yet. Also, I like the foundation you have here. It’s my first time to hear about it maybe because it’s not available in local stores.

    This is such a cool post. I usually have my lip care, lip gloss, sunscreen, eye linear, and a mirror. Yours made me thinking about baby wipes.

    Wow. That lip relief cream is a lip balm? I thought it was some sort of medication. Nevertheless, we almost have the same stuff in our own make-up bags! ๐Ÿ˜€

      It’s a great lip relief cream! Thanks for stopping by! x

    Certainly something to learn from you. I honestly don’t have a make up bag as I don’t know how to do it myself. But I am planning to prioritise beauty this year. Thanks for sharing!

    Your makeup bag looks great! I feel like every woman has her own needs. I also love my eyeliner and mascara, but I don’t usually put them in my purse. A mirror is super important, though! I got mine in Finland and it has Moomins on it!

    Dare looks wonderful. A bit like ruby woo from mac cosmetics. I love bringing different colors with me in my make up bag. Vichy is a brand I never tried but you seem to be a big fan ๐Ÿ™‚

      It’s exactly like the MAC one Sabine! xxx

    You have a great and complete kit, I should say. I only havethe lip cream, foundation, powder, and wipes with my bag. Would love to try your lipstick but maybe, a lighter shade. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh well , that is not too bad compared to my bags ๐Ÿ™‚ I am a fan of Vichy , I love all there products ! Mascara is a MUST and never leave the house without lip gloss . Don’t you feel uncomplete without taken the basics with you ? I could easily go without money , but never without the few most important little friends ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh , and a mirror of course !

    Ella, and this is like you are traveling light, right? Like you have not brought what you would normally take with you? It looks like a lot. Gosh, I have to appreciate the things you have to go through to look good, which is a good thing (absolutely). ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. ellaivoire

      6 July, 2016 at 21:10

      Yeah Robert, we girls tend to have A LOT on our bags! That’s just the travelling light kit! X
