Video: What's in My Makeup Bag?

What do you find endlessly fascinating? For me, one of the most riveting things to do is to take a peek inside someone's cosmetics bag!  There is just something so captivating about exploring a personally-curated collection of essentials...I generally learn more about the person and am inspired by the discovery of new beauty products.  I am excited to share a video that offers a glimpse into my own makeup bag; I hope you find it intriguing!

Kindly scroll on for the video, a full product breakdown and a host of images as well as the Bottom Line...


Cosmetics Bag Close Up: As mentioned in the video, I picked up this Saint Laurent makeup bag from Italian online retailer Luisaviaroma, which specializes in a plethroa of luxury goods.  The stunning jet black leather is soft yet sturdy (love the flat bottom--it stands upright on its own) and the gold zipper pull features the iconic interlocking "YSL" and tassel for immediate chic.  It is large enough to comfortably fit all of my "must-haves" yet small enough to fit comfortably in a handbag.  Simply beautiful! 

The pouch comes in an opulent dust bag (lined for additional protection).
Sleek YSL zipper pull and tassel for added flair.
The inside features a large main compartment and small side compartment for eyeliner, lipliner and small brushes.
Standing on its own.
