Beauty Handbag Saviours

Us girls all have those few products we can't leave the house without, right? Mine change quite frequently but I always carry a few handbag saviours around with me, as well as at least 6 lipsticks (oops!).

Hand cream is a must! That feeling of dry, unrefreshed hands when you're out is the worst and if I was to reach into my bag and not find a good moisturising, gorgeous smelling hand cream to rid me of that I'd disappear. At the moment I'm using the Caudalie Hand and Nail cream in Pamplemousse Rose (£6) as it's the perfect handbag size, gives me that boost of revitalisation and sinks into the skin nice and quickly - yay for no stickiness!
I suffer with quite dry lips all year around, but Winter brings out the worst in them and they can be quite sore and feel dehydrated. Since I discovered the Neutrogena lip balm (£2.89) I haven't looked back and I can't go anywhere without one of these miracle workers!
Another beauty product I can't be without is my favourite NARS lipgloss in Stolen Kisses (£19). Even if I'm wearing another lip colour I'll always carry Stolen Kisses with me as well! It's just the most perfect 'my lips but way better' shade that goes with any makeup look, lasts ages on the lips and just feels so luxurious.
Concealer is a must for me as well as I find during the day I can begin to look tired and my skin becomes dull, so my Estée Lauder Double Wear BB Highlighting Concealer pen (£24.50) is the perfect product to inject some life back into my skin, instantly making me feel and look refreshed.
I don't cary much makeup around with me on a day to day basis, but I almost always have powder with me just in case I need a touch up. The powder I'm using at the moment is the Maybelline Matte Maker (£3.99) which really helps to set my makeup and gives me that extra bit of coverage.

Which beauty products are 
in your handbag?



  1. oooh i might need to pick up that nars lip gloss!!

    1. It's honestly the best lipgloss I've ever used x

  2. these are so similar to my essentials! such a beautiful post <3 x

  3. I love the Estee Lauder highlighting pen :) xo

  4. Hand cream is also one of my must haves - I tend to have super dry hands in the winter, and I love the Hand Food by Soap and Glory. I've tried this Caudalie cream before, and it's a really nice one!
    I'll have to try the Matte Maker by Maybelline, it sounds quite nice and I'm always on the hunt for a good face powder! :)
