What’s in Your Beauty Bag: Intern Edition

March 31, 2011  |  Featured Artists

You may recognize our Product Development Intern, Alyssa, from our recreation video of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way skeleton look.  When she’s not being transformed into a living skeleton, Alyssa is on the prowl for new beauty trends, products, and innovations.  She’s a sworn makeup and beauty addict, so we just had to know what’s in her beauty bag. Double Dose: “I always carry TEMPTU’s Retouch All-In-One Blush AND Highlighter in Sunset Glow.   I love this color- it’s so soft but gives a really nice highlight and makes my skin look so fresh.”

Black In The Act: “I am OBSESSED with the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 in Original-Natural Mint.  It’s a men’s line, but I have one on me at all times and I own probably about 5 of them.  I cannot live without it.  It stays minty for a long time and just feels great.   My boyfriend and I both use it!”

Brow Tamer: “I’m really into eyebrows, and mine are very thick and my brow hairs are long.   The Anastasia Clear Brow Gel gives them great shape and holds them like cement all day.”

Grease Be Gone: “I have oily skin, so Mario Badescu’s Herbal Hydrating Serum is a nice, light moisturizer that won’t make me greasy.  When I feel a little dry in some spots on my face throughout the day, I can put this on over my makeup.  It’s like a fresh drink of water for my skin.”

Painlessly Stainless: “I always carry a Tide to Go Pen just in case!  I’ve ruined many a pair of pants or shirt with a food stain when I was out somewhere.   It dries fast too, so you’re not walking around for hours with a wet spot on your clothes.  I saved my favorite pants with this thing!”

Just Nude Enough: “I LOVE nude lips, and Smashbox’s Photo Finish Lipstick in Charming is an awesome shade of nude.   Most importantly, it’s not too nude where it looks like I don’t have lips.”

Pucker Perfection: “Cargo’s Reverse Lip Liner goes perfect with my nude lipstick.   I have thin lips, and this gives them the illusion of being fuller.  This lip liner is also great when I do a red or defined lip- it creates a sharp line”

As Kohld As Ice: “If I could only own one makeup product, it would be Bourjois Kohl & Contour Black Eyeliner.  I think this brand got discontinued in the U.S.   I bought about 5 of these when they went on clearance, because it’s my favorite eyeliner.  Also, this one has a sharpener on the cap, which makes it ideal for on-the-go.”
