Gig Spotlight - What I want in my Bag 2013!

Beauties, the weekend is here! Are you excited? I hope you are!  I am super excited to share this beauty post with you. What's the topic today?


Today's topic comes courtesy of Gig Bloggers and their bi-weekly beauty prompt of "what I want in my bag 2013". The main guideline was to select our top #5 beauty products that we are currently lusting over. Putting this list together was super easy for me because it just so happens, I am always making small lists of items that I want to buy throughout the year as a small treat just for myself.

We all do that, right? Please don't tell me I am the only one that does this! Well, if I am, so be it!

You will notice that there are more than five (5) items but I just had to add a photo of Meredith Wendell Satchel in Navy Blue. I mean if I am going to have a list of things I want {or shall I say, need} I have to have a new handbag to put them in, right? we got that covered, let's talk about what's going inside the bag:

  • 1. Sigma - Paris Palette Limited Edition : Of course, since this is limited edition, I have to have it before its completely sold out. More importantly though, this palette has everything you need to create gorgeous makeup looks. I like that!
  • 2. Olay CC Cream Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - It's time that I get over the coveted BB cream craze {or perhaps not!} and give the new CC cream a try. I am all for trying new creams from Olay - their creams are really good.
  • 3. Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System - Other then being named like me, I have heard so many great things about this product that I just want it! Every time Clarisonic is featured on QVC, I find myself immediately drawn in and completely immersed in the show... I have my daughter to blame for that!
  • 4. H2O Plus Marilyn T-Teasing Brush - Over the years the texture of my hair has changed so much that I find myself needing to tease it in order to create added volume. I don't tease my hair everyday but for special meetings I like the idea of my hair having a little more umph to it.
  • 5. clear days ahead Trial Kit by Philosophy - With age come raging hormones..not fun! As a teenager, this was never an issue but NOW? Huh, that's another story! So yes, this trial kit along with the Clarisonic should help me maintain my skin clear from blemishes...poof!

Now it's Your turn: If you had to make a top #5 beauty lust list for 2013, what items would you want? Please share your lust list in the comments, we love hearing from you!


  1. Curious about the clear days ahead Kit! And love the palette, it's so cute!

    1. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
    2. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat
    3. Velour lashes
    4. Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
    5. Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream (Or the UD Naked BB Cream!)

    1. @Amanda - The clear days kit sounds amazing for keeping skin "clear" - I would like to think that about this skin care product because Philosophy is known to have great products!

      I didn't even think of adding Smashbox's BB cream! I have heard good things about that one too!

      Thanks for sharing your top five ;)

  2. Great list! Here is mine!
    1) Goat Milk Soap by Goat Milk Stuff- healthy skin is the beginning of a great beauty routine!
    2) Sebastian Signs #35 perfume- gotta smell good to feel good!
    3) The Best Pedi Cream ever by Julep- pretty feet!
    4)BOBBI BROWN BELLINI LIP & EYE PALETTE- must play up the eyes!
    5) ALMAY OIL-FREE MAKEUP ERASER STICKS- yeah mistakes happen!

  3. um that teasing brush looks aweesoooome.
    I'd like to have it and to complete my list I'd go with:
    2. Pure Fiji Body Scrub/Lotion (if you've never tried it this stuff is amazing - I love the gingerlily one!)
    3. Almay Oil Free Makeup eraser sticks - my skin is too oily as it is, and i make far too many mistakes.
    4. I wanna go wild and use one of the "out there" sally hansen nail effects - I usually stick to plain colors and patterns.
    5. Pin & Tube Space Dye Thick Headwrap - it's a little different but I think it could really dress up a bad hair day!

  4. I don't really have one. I am not big into make up. :( I do want to organize my beauty supplies in my bathroom better. I also want some more bath and body works products.

  5. I want anything that will help my face. It's not acne or pimples, just bumps. And a nice self tanner and those kiss dress nails.
