In Our Makeup Bag: Lime Crime Carousel Gloss

Lime Crime is a brand known for bright colors and bold looks. Their lipsticks are my go-to when I want to play up my lips and need long-lasting pigmentation. Seriously, they stain the NEXT day. Obviously, I was beyond excited when Lime Crime announced that they were putting out lip glosses! They promise "semi-opaque coverage combined with bursts of nebulesque sparkle that comes alive in indoor lighting." Let's see how they stood up to those claims!

Make Up For Ever is a regular here on Makeup Bag, and with good reason -- their products are fab! They make professional-quality makeup that is accessible to the masses. I count their HD Microfinish powder, Smoky Lash mascara and Aqua Creams amongst some of my fave products, so imagine my excitement when I discovered that you can get all their best in one set!

In Our Makeup Bag: Clarins Rouge Prodige Lipstick

Lipstick and lipgloss are the bare necessities of everyone's makeup stash. Every brand makes a million lip products, in just as many shades, finishes, etc, making it difficult to sort through and find the quality ones! Clarins is a great, yet underrated brand that puts out amazing stuff. Not only do they pay attention to packaging and design, but the product inside always matches the beautiful exterior.

In Our Makeup Bag: Clarins 4 Colour Eye Palette

Eyeshadow (that is well applied) is mark of maturity for me. Palettes are a convenient way to store shadows, but a good eyeshadow palette is hard to find! Clarins have recently released a series of eyeshadow quads featuring mineral eye shadows in gorgeous color combos. I took 02 Nudes for a test run!

In Our Makeup Bag: Clarins Color Definition 3D Radiance Face Powder

Correcting powders have always puzzled me. How does a powder, that seems white or translucent when swatched, work to reduce redness, illuminate tone and color-correct imperfections? Well, I'm always up for trying something new and decided that the Clarins Color Definition 3D Radiance Face Powder would be a fun tester!

In Our Makeup Bag: Skindinavia No More Shine Makeup Finish

Setting your makeup is such an important step, especially in the summer, that many people skip. Makeup isn't water or sweat-proof (gross, I know) and any moisture that ends up on your face contributes to a "makeup meltdown." You can get products designed solely for setting in spray and powder forms and they ensure that you don't look like a sweaty raccoon monster by the end of your night on the town!

In Our Makeup Bag: Lise Watier Portfolio Professional Correctors

Concealer is my #2 makeup product behind mascara. If I have zero time to apply my makeup, I still manage to throw on those two babies because they really do make you look SO much better. Lise Watier is a brand that pumps out great quality cosmetics, but is sometimes overlooked.

In Our Makeup Bag: Korres Jasmine Body Butter

It's actually been said that you're better off eating your body lotion because your stomach has enzymes to break chemicals down, while anything applied to your skin goes directly to the bloodstream. Korres is a natural skincare and cosmetics brand all the way from Greece! They pride themselves on using safe, natural ingredients, so I feel good about testing out their body butter and putting it on my skin.

In Our Makeup Bag: Liz Earle Toner & Moisturiser

Clear skin is truly key in any beauty routine. If your base isn't good, your makeup can only go so far. Washing your face thoroughly and targeting your skin's problems is necessary. And quality skin care products are just as important as quality makeup!
