Two handbag essentials

Corn silk translucent pressed face powder (semi matt)
As someone with an oily T-zone, powder is an absolute must have. This particular one helps to take away any shine, and sets my make up, all without looking too powdery or emphasising my pores.

My T-zone still gets oily during the day, but not as much as usual and it can be reapplied without looking cakey. Formula wise I can't fault this product but I'm not the greatest fan of the packaging. The compact is slim, lightweight and portable, but the black and gold does make it look rather old fashioned.

No7 Vital brights cream blush in Blossoming pink
Blusher really helps to brighten up my face and make me look more awake, but it usually fades by mid afternoon. Now I don't always reapply, but I do like to keep this in my handbag so I can top up if I'm going out straight after uni.

It's a gorgeous coral pink colour and texture wise, feels almost like a mousse. This means I can apply it with my fingers and it blends easily to give a nice pop of colour to the cheeks. The blusher can even be applied over some lipbalm and it doubles up nicely as lipgloss.

Have you tried either of these 2 products? What are your handbag must haves?

  1. I really want to try Corn Silk. Pressed powder is definitely a handbag essential for me too! I also always carry lipbalm and concealer for touch-ups. If I'm going out straight after work I'll throw in a few more bits but often will forget to use them! x

    1. I'd definitely recommend it. For years I've dismissed it as old fashioned but it's actually a very good powder. I usually carry lipbalm and a lipgloss too :) x
