What's in my beauty bag?

Courtney at In(side) the Loop posted what her favorite can't live without products and I love seeing what people choose, so I thought I would join in. I have to forewarn you though, I love products and truth be told I actually use most of them daily. I love cosmetics!
My mascara is without a doubt Lancome Definicils, this is a must have for me. It leaves lashes nice and long and I need all the help I can get in the lash department.

My concealer is Laura Mercier Secret Concealer, I love it because it's not too heavy so it doesn't look make me look like I have wrinkly under eyes (a major plus for the over 30 crowd).

For the face I love Bobbi Brown products I start with the Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation and top it off with her Sheer Loose Powder. I don't always wear the foundation, the powder will do in a pinch.

I usually wear Bobbi Brown's Long Wear Gel Eyeliner, it lasts forever and you can go thin and natural with it or thick and smoky.

For all things colorful I always choose MAC, their shadows, blush and lips are the best! Their products have a lot of pigment so you don't actually have to use quite as much as with other products. I don't always go for the natural look so for me they have tons of stuff to choose from, I feel like a kid in a candy store there.

For skincare lately I have been using a product called Obagi which helps me with those pesky fine lines and wrinkles.

My usual fragrance is Vera Wang, I love it. I have been wearing it since it came out and I'm still not sick of it.

This is the content of my bag, I know the full war-paint thing is probably a bit much for some but I do love it. No worries though I don't do it everyday, just as often as I get the chance!

I had a friend use Obagi and LOVE it..but her husband works at a skincare place and she got it free. Where do you purchase it? I heard it was very expensive - is this true?

You can purchase Obagi usually from a doctor's office and it is pretty pricey, but the results are SO worth it. Your skin looks unbelievable with it.

I love the secret concealer which I like to use in conjunction with the secret brightening powder. Seems to make my horrible dark circles vanish....P.S. You don't have to be 30 to have those fine lines (called wrinkles!) show! :)
