Well, here we go! After much deliberation on how to start this shindig properly I've decided to dive straight in by letting you have a delve into my make up bag, braveee! (I did omit the dust protector for my iPhone that i found in the bottom, 3 months after I'd thought I'd lost it, not a clue, sorry to anyone who would of like this to be included!haha!!). On your marks, get set..... lets gooooo :)
The offending article:
Bought from H&M a few months ago for £2.99 I think, I really like it because its got a plasticy lining so if anything leaks (this is highly likely, I'm terrible for leaving lids loose!) it can just be wiped off. I fondly refer to it as the bucket bag!! It holds a lot more than you might first think!

I did just write an absolute epic about each piece, but I think even a newborn baby would have been grey and unbelievably bored by the time they'd finished reading it, so instead I'll give you a quick lowdown of in my opinion the best and worst!
*Estee Lauder Automatic Pencil for Eyes- '01- Jet Black'*- Really intense long lasting colour.
*MAC Studio Fix Fluid- 'NW20'*- My favourite item, couldn't live without it, yes, yes saddo i know!! A medium buildable coverage with a slight sheen finish.
*MAC Fluidline- 'Blacktrack'* - Long lasting intense black colour. (Recently fell asleep with this still on, and looked suprisingly made up in the morning!! Amaze if I'd been going for that look!!)
*bareMinerals Foundation- '2N Medium Beige' (to set foundation)*- A new addition but loving it! Sets my MAC foundation all day with a matte finish.
*Benefit Browzings Brow Shaping Kit- 'Medium'*- Shapes my unshapely slugs into beautiful brows, what more could I want?!!!
*Benefit 'High Beam' Highlighter*- Lovely coloured highlighter for brow bone and cheek bones!
*Leichner Camera Clear Tinted Foundation- 'Blend of Walnut Whip'*- Just too moisturing, no staying power!
*MACTechnakohl Liner Eye-Liner Kajal- 'Graphblack'*- Bought to replace my Estee Lauder, its colour just isn't black enough, would always recommend Estee Lauder over it.
Well, there we go, if you've gone grey in the mean time I do apologise! :)
