Sneak a Peek Into My Cosmetic Case

These types of posts have always intrigued me, so I thought it would be fun to partake and let you see what I carry around with me on a daily basis in my cosmetic case.

My cosmetic case was a gift from the hubby years ago. It's a Louis Vuitton Cosmetic Pouch measuring from LxHxD is 6.7''x4.7''. It currently retails for $310.00 (but this was not the price we paid years ago, in fact, I don't remember the actual price. Louis Vuitton's prices rise steadily). I love the size of this case and am continually surprised with how much it really does hold.

I like the sleekness of this case. Another thing that is quite nice about this case is the fact that you can wipe it down easily if you experience any spillage (gasp). I also like how resilient it is, and am amazed at how well it has held up over the years, this thing still looks new! It has made changing purses a breeze, as I can just toss it into a new purse when the mood strikes.

I don't carry too much stuff with me in my cosmetic case and I personally don't have a need to tote around a blush or foundation. I primarily have it filled with lip stuff, seeing how this is the area that most often requires the most touchups. I do not have any blush or eyeshadows in here either. I find that when using an eyeshadow base my eyeshadow doesn't budge.  Besides, I could easily throw in my Edward Bess Compact Rouge, I just don't have it in my case at this time.

You can also see I have a thing for peach and pink lipgloss. What can I say, between this and my clear cube I may need an intervention? I have four Chanel pinky/peach glosses, one Kevyn Aucoin hot pink lipgloss, one Nars brownish pink lipgloss, one Bobbi Brown pinky/sparkly lipgloss, and one Giorgio Armani lipstick in peach (that has the coolest magnetic closure ever). I also have a MAC lipliner in Subculture that I never use (oops). I tote around my Chanel powder (primarily for the mirror) and one set of MAC blotting papers to control shine. Add to that my Marchesa mini mascara and my mascara wands (that I pick up from Sephora) to tame my eyebrows and I'm good to go. With all that, I have my bases covered for minor touch-ups.

Now, that you have been able to look at how I organize my makeup at home I hope you enjoyed looking into my cosmetic pouch just as much!
