In Our Makeup Bag: BITE Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream in Burgundy & Crianza

I've tried (and loved) these babies in the past and wanted to see if the shade expansion retained the quality I so love. Crianza is a "dark pink with red undertones", while Burgundy is "berry purple".

In Our Makeup Bag: Perricone No Concealer Concealer

If I were to be stranded on a deserted island, with only one item of makeup with me, do you know what it would be? Concealer! Okay, let's not nit-pick about the fact that no one really needs concealer, let alone makeup, on a deserted island, but you get my drift.

In Our Makeup Bag: Anastasia Lash Genius Clear Waterproof Topcoat

I think this is a fabulous and overdue idea; you can instantly make any mascara waterproof with this topcoat. My personal favorite mascara doesn't come in waterproof, so this little guy is perfect for when I know I'll be in a waterproof-required situation.

These nail polish pens are actually pretty easy to use! The polish comes out the brush at the end, at a steady, but not overwhelming pace. When you press down on the colored end, more product comes out.

In Our Makeup Bag: Clarins Gloss Prodige

Lip gloss is the perfect Spring/Summer handbag essential. Lighter and brighter than lipstick, it gives you an effortless, airy look. I definitely switch over to mainly gloss in the summertime and hopefully this new gloss fits my needs. I tried out two very different shades, Grenadine and Papaya!

In Our Makeup Bag: Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick

Bite Beauty is a super unique brand that I'm happy to see getting recognition in the blogosphere! Each of their Luminous Creme Lipsticks "delivers super antioxidant resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term anti-aging benefits. Each lipstick contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine." That's definitely a neat concept.

Most makeup junkies I know love neutral eyeshadows. Sure, brights are fun, but neutrals are definitely more "everyday" and appropriate in every situation. Every makeup lover needs a palette full of neutral shades that's great for a quick daytime look and traveling. theBalm is obviously one of my favorite brands and I'm thrilled that they have finally decided to bring us a neutral palette!

In Our Makeup Bag: SUPER by Perricone First Blush

During the winter months, most people's skin suffers. It goes from bright and glowy to dull, dead and uncomfortable. I spend most winter trying to get my skin back to it's summer luster and always want to try new products that promise to make me look alive!

In Our Makeup Bag: Anastasia Highlighting Creme Duo

Most makeup users apply blush daily, but some overlook highlighter. A good highlighter won't make you look like a disco ball; it will blend seamlessly into your skin and define your bone structure. Anastasia is a brand known more for brow products, but their makeup packs a real punch. I'm testing out their blush and highlighter.

In Our Makeup Bag: Make Up For Ever La Boheme Rouge Artist Natural

Make Up For Ever is a fantastic cosmetics brand, known for professional-level products. Their Rouge Artist line of lipsticks are pigment-saturated and deliver a huge dose of color. I love the formula, but sometimes don't want to wear such an intense lip shade. This is where the new Rouge Artist Natural range comes in.
