So as you may already know, in a few weeks time (hopefully) I will be heading of to the hospital to have my baby boy .
There are so many things to pack in the hospital bag and being a beauty blogger it seems even I need to ensure I have some essentials with me even at the time I may not feel up to putting on a full face.
Just a lip balm and hand cream for sure followed by maybe a little bronzer to take the paleness from all that tiring birthing look that I will no doubt have .
My bag has been sat on the end of my bed for the past two weeks now and I finally got around to packing it last night when I realised that some of my makeup took up quite a lot of room and so I needed to check on something more compact that may be ideal to carry with me in a small bag and take up not so much space .
I found my Bagsy Bundle shortly after.
I was sent these to me a few weeks ago and to be fare the one thing that has not been out of my little Boden going out bag is the wonderful lip cocoon moisture balm .
This is the product that I have found mostly used due to the fact I had a really bad cold sore a few weeks ago and it seemed the only product I could find that helped ease and moisture the lips enough not to make the cracks and soreness escalate into something worse than it was.
Bagsy are a British born beauty brand that pride themselves on supplying and catering for those in need of travel friendly beauty products. Ones that can be taken with you everywhere in smaller , ideal sizes suitable for lets say Hospital trips or weekends away.
Not only are they great for taking with you away but because they are handy , they are great for your handbag meaning you can have your essentials at reach when ever you are out and about.
The one thing that captures my eye on these products are the cute and adorable packaging .
Each item has been packed individually in a lovely bright and cheerful box (except for the hand cream) and some even have a lovely quote regarding what the piece is all about .
The beautiful eyes selection consists of a thick pencil that comes with a sharpener and costs £14.
Beautiful eyes states it lasts for 24 hours and I have to be honest it does have great staying power for what I was actually expecting from its soft , feathery texture.
It stays put for the full day .
What I love most about this is that the shade ''The big smoke'' is a lovely light shade which makes it look natural on the eye but at the same time enhancing the natural outline without the obvious black solid line which I like . Not only do they do the smoke shade but the shade of ''Pearly bird'' is also amazing for highlighting the inner eye and under brow . I also found this great to enhance the shaping of the top lip.
I go through stages of lipbalms/lip glosses and lipsticks. Some days I don't feel like wearing anything other than a balm where as others I find a full coloured lippy is exactly what I need to cheer me up.
Not having much time this summer holidays being pregnant and not bothered as well as kids being at home for 6 weeks, I tend to have reached for the balms and glosses most days and to be fare I have been pretty impressed with two of the lip products from Bagsy both for different reasons.
Lip Velvet which is available for £12 and having been lucky enough to be sent the shade ''Spinning plates'' I felt able to enjoy the shade daily . It was a lovely matte finish gloss and felt amazingly moisturising on the lip.
The shade was perfect for everyday wear and I was very impressed that a gloss could be so pretty , matte and most of all look smooth on the lip with a pretty good staying power which to be fare most gloss does not give usually .
Like I said above earlier, the Bagsy Lip cocoon became my saviour a few weeks ago, honest truth.
The Lip cocoon is available for only £7.
I raked my rescue balms and creams for a cure of a dreaded , nasty and sore cold sore which appeared one morning after I took a sip from a can of pop the night before (I know I should not have but I was craving for fizzy pop).
After funding nothing that was soothing on my lip I found the Lip cocoon the only thing that smothered my lip in a lovely lemon balm that instantly felt relieving .
The packaging was just as a normal lipstick with a twisting motion to bring the lipstick up and out of the tube but instead of that usual plastic covering it was a lovely fresh cardboard .
The lemon aroma is so refreshing I kind of got a little attached to it over the last few weeks and I am now wondering whether the ''Rasberry'' should join the lemon in my bag.
Needing my hands to be soft enough to hold a baby and my little ones and husband , I always welcome a hand cream and this ''Heavenly hands'' is perfectly ideal .
At only £6 , this cream is perfect for taking every where with you and I actually love it because of its thick texture which I find rare with hand creams . I have very thirsty skin and it melts in quickly leaving a very soft and subtle feel to my skin with a lovely scent.
I really am going less dramatic with my makeup over this pregnancy stage due to the fact I really can not be bothered with the multiple items and products needed to get the daily look I usually go for . The natural look is being welcomed so much now and I am finding that just a small amount of bronzer over the cheeks and bridge of the nose can be just as appealing .
The Kabuki brush is £15 , I know , quite pricey but for a makeup brush , the essentials of a good look is given from a good brush and this brush is perfect for picking just enough bronzer up for that all natural look in the upcoming colder days.
It feels soft and easy to handle and I have it in my hospital bag along with the rest of my Bagsy supplies .
I have to say I am very pleased with the products, although some seem a little pricey , I appreciate how good they actually are , the compact , handy size makes them more appealing for me as well as the gorgeous packaging and long lasting staying power they give with each wear.
If you are into makeup, like a top up on your days out and about or even love a little balm or gloss now and then, Bagsy is perfectly cute to carry with you and it certainly had me smiling .
As well as the lovely items available from Bagsy, you can also buy their little cosmetic bag for £15.
Even this wonderfully designed bag has its own little quote hidden inside giving it its very own personality.
'' A little touch of loveliness is always at hand''
Sums it all up for me really, I have actually found no fault with anything from Bagsy and will be keeping an eye out on any more upcoming products from them.
Bagsy do have their own site but unfortunately not available to buy at Bagsybeauty.com but they do sell all Bagsy products over at Feelunique.com who currently have some launch offers on at the moment.
