Here at Cocktail Cosmetics, we’re not just all about the make up, we’re also all about the practical and the handy too.
Products that make your life easier and offer convenience too, some of those just happen to be cosmetics too! So, here are some of our top handbag essentials, the tools and products that we think are perfect for carrying around in your hand bag for your touch ups and beauty emergencies.
Starting with a mirror. The Eye of Horus Mirror Double Sided Magnifying mirror is the ideal compact mirror, containing two sides, a standard mirror and a magnifying mirror, and as it’s in our sale, it’s a steal at £5.00.
Pro Hygiene Hand Sanitizing Gel (100ml £3) to kill 99.99% of bacteria within 60 seconds, this is ideal for clean hands when soap and water aren’t available.
Tweezers are handy for so many things, not just removing hair, so we’d recommend always popping some in your handbag. The Neve Ergonomic Tweezers are available in Black or Lilac and have a silicone grip. £3.95
Blotting paper is ideal for on the go removal of pesky shine! Our blotting papers come in packs of 100 and are available in either a white or black travel pouch. £2.95. Perfect for every handbag.
A travel make up brush set can be an ideal purchase for the roomier handbag. The Morphe 7 piece Rose Brush Set (£24.95) includes travel sizes of every brush you might need, in a convenient carrying tube.
No one likes dry lips and EOS lip balms are incredibly popular. These little spheres of balm are loaded with nourishing ingredients such as Vitamin E and shea butter and they come in nine appetizing flavours. Strawberry Sorbet, Orange Zest, Summer Fruit, Lemon Drop, Pomegranate Raspberry, Honeysuckle Honeydew, Blueberry Acai, Sweet Mint and Barbados Heat Wildberry. They are £5.95 each.
A concealer is a must and the LA Girl USA Pro Concealer is crease resistant, long wearing but remarkably lightweight on the skin. It comes in a large range of shades making finding a match a breeze. They are £5.00 each.
A multi use cosmetic product is handy as it means only carrying one product in place of several and the OCC Crème Colour Concentrates are perfect. Grandma is a great shade, a classic coral, making it perfect for lips or cheeks and even eyes. The colour is buildable and smooth and best of all, every shade is in our sale and priced at £9.95.
A make up bag is perfect for keeping everything together and our Cosmetic Bag with Natural trim is both practical and affordable. Available in three sizes, with prices starting at £6.95, this zip top make up bag is opaque on one size and clear on the other, meaning you can see at a glance what’s inside.
