this might be one of my favorite duos to date!
the bag is a discovery from best-ever online gift guide, to and from. it’s quite a surprise from papersource (i would have never thought to look for a makeup bag, there) – at 7×7 it’s the perfect size and with a price under $10, you’ve never had less of a reason to buy something this adorable in your life. it’s nothing fancy in simple canvas, but a sweetly inspiring quote makes me feel like i can tackle the day.
the balm is another big surprise from indie cosmetic brand, julie hewett. her camellia lip balm stick is ultra moisturizing and the effects really last, so i’m not constantly reapplying. it’s also refreshingly simple in packaging, ingredients, and formula. there’s no perfume or dye, it goes on perfectly sheer and leaves a subtle shine. it’s everything i’ve been looking for in a non-tinted balm. so, so good.
