july bag + balm

bag: j.crew printed makeup pouch, $16.99 (on sale!)

balm: l’oreal colour riche caresse stick, $7.99

i’ve had my eye on the chunky makeup pouch from j.crew since it popped up in stores earlier this spring. it’s been on my list to share with you and since it’s on sale i just had to include it in this month’s bag + balm duo. it’s made of waxed canvas and it’s the perfect size at almost 4 x 6. you can really stuff it with all of your beauty booty and it will serve you well to tote your daily essentials if you’re a big bag carrier or it’s great for overnights.

one thing you’ll want to be sure to keep inside is l’oreal’s new colour riche caresse sticks. i’m kind of cheating this month since these are not really a balm (at all) but i’m pretty in love with them. the sticks are sheer and deeply tinted with a consistency falling between a lipstick and a gloss. they are moisturizing and give a glossy finish with amazing color payoff that lasts a really long time. i’m liking these even better than revlon’s lip butters (especially for summer) because they’re a bit lighter in texture but more pigmented. win, win.

    I’ve been looking for a new coral lipstick… hopefully the L’oreal caresse sticks come in that shade! they sound amazing!


  3. Oh lawd, better than the lip butters?? How is that possible?!!! I love the paisley printed bag- too cute. Thanks for suggesting another lip product I MUST go buy…I think:)

      haha i know! they’re just a bit lighter. sometimes i felt like the lip butters are a little heavy – and these last longer. sorry, jenny sue’s wallet :)
