What's In My [Kit] Bag?

As promised here is a breakdown of what is in my makeup kit bag for college at the moment.  You will notice there is a lot of Bobbi Brown in it which is because that is what they made us buy for our starter kit - don't even get me started, I think it is ridiculous and horrendously overpriced, especially for practicing on each other!!!  I would not buy Bobbi Brown ever again, it was only because we were basically forced to... This pile of shit skinned me £350 *deep breaths*

Anyway, enough moaning and onto the kit!  To make things easier I have put (CF) beside items which are cruelty free as there are a lot in here which aren't.

I got the bag from eBay for about £17 but I kind of wish that I just splashed out for the £30 Charles Fox one as I feel like this won't really last and the strap is actually sewed on squint...  Joys of eBay!

In The Pockets...

  1. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 in Golden 6 
  2. Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation SPF 15 in Warm Sand 2.5 
  3. Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation SPF 15 in Porcelain 0
  4. Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer in Medium

  1. Bobbi Brown Lip Color Sandwash Pink 22
  2. Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Black Ruby 8
  3. Bobbi Brown Lip Liner in Ballet Pink

  1. Benefit They're Real Mascara
  2. YSL Touché Eclat
  3. ELF Eyelid Primer
  4. Surgical Spirit in a recycled Lush bottle!
  5. Victoria Jackson Show Off Lip Compact

On The Inside...

I've got a few smaller bags inside to keep everything nice and neat, then bigger things just float about loose in the bag.

  1. Bobbi Brown Oil-Free Even Finish Compact Foundation in Beige 3 
  2. Bobbi Brown Oil-Free Even Finish Compact Foundation in Warm Ivory 1
  3. Bobbi Brown Bronzer/Blush Duo - Bahama Brown & Pink Peony
  4. Coastal Scents 10 Blusher Palette (CF but their brushes aren't)
  5. Kryolan Loose Setting Powder (CF)

In this bag I have my powder puff (I use this when resting my hand on people's skin when doing eyeliner to stop me smudging their base), mascara spoolies (I clearly need some more haha!), spatulas, pointy cottonbuds and a pencil sharpener.

In the other bag I have makeup wipes (CF), lip balm (CF), eye makeup remover (CF), cleanser (CF), toner (CF - it's Lush!), eye cream, moisturiser and hand sanitiser. 

I've not labelled these are there's just so many!!  Most of them are just my own which I've got in sets at Christmas and never use...  If there's one in particular you're wondering about just let me know in the comments and I can tell you what it is! 

  1. The Body Shop Shimmer Waves (CF)
  2. Bobbi Brown Blush in Slopes 17
  3. Kryolan Classic Lip Mini Palette (CF)
  4. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Powder Pink 6

Lastly I have Kryolan Dermacolor Mini Palette in Fair (CF) which I used to do a tattoo cover-up in this post, and a very cheap and cheerful MUA light pressed powder (CF).

So there you go!  I think I will also do a post on sanitising products as that is a very important part of being a makeup artist and also helpful for your own items, especially if you are prone to breakouts.



  1. that's an impressive kit!

  2. Oh wow that's a lot of make up! x

  3. Ah, I had to get a bobbi brown kit too, I'm not really a fan either to be honest, I don't like the foundations and apart from a few pieces its not really my type of makeup.
    My Kit is mostly Illamasqua now but I have bits and bobs from elsewhere MAC, Laura Mercier etc.
    I have a masssive zebra train case but its heavy to lug about, I like that clear bag you have xx

    1. Oh joy! Yeah it's not the best, the eyeshadows are so crap, especially the white one! Oh I love Illamasqua but I only have a foundation and concealer from them so far - i want it all!!

      Aww yeah the train cases are nice but they seem so heavy!

  4. That must weigh a flippin ton! Poor you having to lug it all about x x x

  5. such a good post very interesting xx

  6. WHat a cool bag. Wish I had it. I like Bobbi Brown stuff. Really nice makeup. I'd also like to try that elf primer. You should do a tutorial on it.

    1. Thanks, I've not really had to get a chance to try it out properly yet, I'd like to try it compared to UD Primer Potion :)

  7. Holy crap that's a lot of stuff!! It sucks that they forced you to buy a brand you don't like, I would have refused. What's the point in spending that much on high end stuff just to practise? Surely it'd be better to get something mid-range? Maybe they had an affiliation with BB?

    I nominated you for an award on my blog =) xx

    1. I know I wish they'd just gave us a list of things we needed and let us choose what we like :/ Exactly it's so bad lol yeah one of the lecturers works for them.... *cough*

      Oooh thanks I'll have a look :D


Thank you so much for your comments, they are much appreciated! :)
