The lost make-up bag

Exactly 1 week ago, I lost my entire make-up bag while traveling home to Vienna. It must have been somewhere at the hotel, various airports (Sylt and Düsseldorf) or inflight and I refused to actually consider it “lost” all week. Despite my efforts of getting it back by calling every lost & found I could think of, it is now probably safe to say that it is gone for good. In other words: Time to restock everything I loved (read: will be broke after this).

Luckily, we filmed the contents of my make-up bag as part of the Q&A video from Milan, which made it a lot easier to figure out what exactly was in the lost bag. While I would consider myself someone who prefers a very natural look, I was a tiny bit surprised of how many products I actually use on a daily basis:

  • MAC Cosmetics “burgundy times nine” eye shadow palette: I used this palette to do my make-up for Kathi’s wedding this Summer and have been using it almost daily since. I feel like the colors where made for me and I love every single shade of the 9.
  • Catrice “nude york city” lipstick no.20: In all honesty, I totally underestimated the brand Catrice, mainly because it is so affordable. Such an embarrassing reason, I know… but as they say “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”, I was proven wrong the second I gave this ombré-effect lipstick a try. It is my go-to lip color and I already re-ordered 2 – just to be on the safe side this time around.
  • Chanel “dimensions de Chanel” mascara in black: No make-up bag is complete without a great black mascara, if you ask me. Luckily, I still have a few other mascaras flying around my bathroom, which will do for now. But nothing quite like this classic by Chanel…
  • Bobbi Brown “nude finish tinted moisturizer spf15”: After running out of my Bobbi Brown skin foundation cushion compact right after Milan, I decided to give this tinted moisturizer a try. The bottle was brand new. Gone.
  • Zoeva “luxe crease” brush: If there is one eyeshadow brush to use for the rest of your life – this is it.
  • Bobbi Brown “blush” brush: I always used this to apply the highlighting bronzer by Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder. I also lost another Bobbi Brown brush (the “full coverage face brush”), but was lucky to have a backup at home. Not so lucky for the blush brush though.
  • Nars “radiant creamy concealer”: Unfortunately, the bag held not only one of these but two. I was about to run out of it so I packed the brand new one just in case. I hope whoever finds my make-up bag has the same skin tone and can at least make use of all of these amazing (and partly brand new) products!
  • Benefit “brow kit”: When it comes to brows, Benefit is the brand to know. No matter which of their brow products I have tried so far, love them all, use them all, lost them all…
  • Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder “modern mercury” highlighting bronzer: If I had to name one product that I am saddest about losing, this is it. Not only because it is the priciest, but also because it is literally one of the most beautiful bronzers/highlighters I have ever owned. Plus, it lasted me almost a year and was nowhere close to being used up.

    Oh Gott!! Das grenzt an eine mittelschwere Katastrophe! Ich würde glaube ich dezent durchdrehen. Ich zähle nämlich auch nicht zu den Menschen, die 10 verschiedene Concealer, Bronzer, Highlighter, Mascara etc. zuhause rumfahren haben, sondern ich habe genau EIN Produkt jeder Art, das ich sehr gewählt ausgesucht habe, teilweise auch relativ viel Geld dafür ausgegeben und ich liebe sie alle. Die Brushes von Zoeva habe ich z.B. auch und finde alle toll <3 für die Brows habe ich eine all-in-one Palette von Urban Decay, die ist super praktisch aber ich habe glaube ich auch eher Glück mit meinen Augenbrauen und muss gar nicht so viel tun. Meine go-to Mascara ist seit eineinhalb Jahren von Rituals und sie ist die Beste, die ich je hatte! Dein Highlighting Bronzer würde mich auch interessieren, der scheint wirklich sehr schön zu sein!

    Super nervig…!!!Vor allem wenn man dann erst mal merkt was für einen Wert man da immer mit sich rum schleppt…!Meine Utensilien waren bis jetzt immer so fair nicht alle gleichzeitig leer zu werden…aber gleichzeitig durchzubrennen ist nicht nice…!
    Nicht ärgern und einen guten Start in die neue Woche…xx aus München…!

    PS: nicht zu viel ärgern, auch wenns einfach gesagt als getan ist!

    Liebe Grüße

    Das ist wirklich super ärgerlich besonders weil du ja einige Schätze in deiner Make Up Tasche hattest!
    Ich hab dir ja den Catrice Lipstick nachgekauft und wär ohne dich nie auf ihn gekommen, ich unterschätze manche Marken eindeutig, denn ich finde ihn super!
