Beauty Bag Essentials

Bring your skincare routine on the go with our spacious beauty bag. Fits a full beauty kit and all your other toiletries.

A concealer is a makeup bag essential because it can be used to spot-treat dark circles or pesky pimples without covering up with an entire face of makeup.

Tinted Lip Balm

Lip color adds a pop of color that brightens your face and can be as subtle or bold as you want. The biggest challenge is finding a lip product that hydrates your lips while providing a little extra protection from external irritants and harmful UV rays.

We love tinted lip balm because it delivers a natural look that also protects your lips with nourishing ingredients like shea butter and mango seed butters. Plus, it’s packed with antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that help keep your lips healthy and hydrated.

Unlike lipstick, which often contains more pigment and is much thicker than lip balm, the formula of our tinted lip care products is super smooth and easy to apply. You can swipe a few strokes of color on your bare lips, or layer it on top of your favorite lip gloss to give your look a bit more shine and hydration.

Our organic tinted lip care products come in a wide range of colors to flatter every skin tone. If you have cool undertones, try berry or mauve shades, while pink or coral hues can flatter warm tones. We recommend choosing a shade that complements your skin tone and personal style to create the perfect look.

Concealer

One of the most versatile makeup products in your beauty bag, concealer has many perks. A dab of it underneath your eyes can brighten and awaken you, while a thin layer on any pesky spots or dark circles can help hide them. It’s also great as a primer under eyeshadow or lipstick to create a smooth base so your makeup lasts longer.

There are a wide variety of formulas to choose from depending on your skin type. Look for oil-free, non-comedogenic options for acne-prone skin and hypoallergenic or fragrance-free ones for sensitive complexions. You can even find hydrating and nourishing ingredients like shea butter, coconut beauty bag oil and jojoba oil in some concealers to nourish your skin while covering imperfections.

Another benefit of concealer is that it can be used to contour your face. Apply a small amount of concealer cosmetic case to the hollows under your eyes or on any other areas you want to contour, then blend with a brush or your fingertips. Some concealers also come with a built-in highlighter, making it easier to highlight and illuminate your complexion.

Keep all your makeup and skincare essentials in our supercute large Beauty Bag. Designed to fit all your favorites (even full-size skincare) and easily slip in your tote or suitcase, this beauty bag is made with durable, easy-to-clean materials. Plus, it has a snap-button interior pouch to keep your products neatly organized and a large zippered front pocket for extra storage.

Lip Gloss

A clear lip gloss gives a natural-looking shine and is essential for a minimal makeup look. This product can be worn alone or layered over any lipstick shade.

Most lip gloss formulas contain emollients and moisturizing ingredients like shea butter to keep lips soft, supple, and moisturized. Many glosses also contain skin-protecting substances like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to shield the lips from damaging UV rays. Other ingredients include flavorings and fragrances, which can be either natural or synthetic. Some ingredients may contribute to pore-clogging. To avoid this, choose a hydrating lip gloss containing non-clogging jojoba and rosehip seed oils.

Some products also include a special ingredient for a plumping effect or a lip-whitening component. These can be as simple as a mix of mustard sprout and peppermint extract or as complex as marine collagen. Other products, such as the Fenty Cherry Treat Conditioning + Strengthening Lip Oil, include a combination of peptides, portulaca pilosa for lip volume, and Spilanthes acmella for whitening.

Most liquid lip glosses are packaged in a compact tube that has a rounded or slanted applicator wand to glide the gloss over the lips. Other glosses are solid and in pots or jars that can be applied with a fingertip or lip brush. The consistency of the lip gloss can also vary. Some formulas are thicker and more opaque while others are more sheer and translucent.

Lipstick

Lipstick is a beauty essential that comes in an array of colors and finishes. It is usually made of waxes, oils, and pigments. Waxes give lipstick its shape and allow it to be easily applied to the lips. Beeswax, candelilla wax, and carnauba wax are commonly used in lipsticks. Other types of waxes include ozokerite, ceresin, and microcrystalline waxes. Oils in lipsticks soften the waxes and allow them to spread more smoothly. They also change the intensity of the lipstick’s color.

The pigments in lipstick are dyes and other natural coloring agents. These can include bromo acid, D&C Red No. 21, and a range of other dyes. Minerals can also be added as coloring agents, such as iron oxide. Lipstick also contains a number of preservatives, such as methyl paraben and propyl paraben. Some lipsticks contain turmeric powder, which has antimicrobial properties.

Although it may seem like just a cosmetic tool, lipstick has many benefits. For one, it helps women feel more confident and feminine. It is also a good barrier for the lips from the elements, such as wind and cold temperatures. It can even protect against the sun’s harmful rays. It can be a fun way to express personal style, with the vast array of shades available. But perhaps the most important function of lipstick is its ability to help women in difficult emotional or physical situations. For example, a recent study showed that lipstick helped recent mothers reconnect with their femininity after having a baby.
