What's in My Makeup Bag?

Drum roll, please. As a confessed makeup-holic, I noticed that my ever-expanding collection has now expanded to the point of taking over all but one drawer in my bathroom (leaving poor hubbs with just the one itty bitty drawer to call his own). So, with this burgeoning collection of all manner of makeup and beauty products, I'd like to unveil my newest feature: What's in My Makeup Bag? I hope to make this one a regular so do write in with any suggestions!

So let's start 'er off right, shall we? There's a nice, cool nip in the air. Which means it's soon to be time for warm apple cider, hot donuts, and gorgeous autumn colors! You know what that means, ladies. Time to put away the fun, vibrant summer shades and trade in for some deep hued fall nail polish! I don't know what excites me more about season changes - the actual weather change, or the chance to swap in a whole new palette of makeup colors? Right now I'm all about the "greige" trend. OPI's You Don't Know Jacques has been a fall favorite for over 2 years now. The OPI shades can be purchased at ULTA or even some chain hair places and retails for around $8.50. A less expensive alternative (it's like $2 cheaper) that still produces a shiny, ripple-free application is Sally Hansen's Commander in Chic. But watch out ladies, this latter shade is a little hard to find in stock at the drugstores I've scouted so keep your eyes open! I scored mine at my local Target. I will say, I do prefer the wide, flat brush of the Sally Hansen polish to that of the OPI. Quality-wise, Sally is aces in my book!
