Makeup Bag Must Haves

Although I'm always trying out new products, I do have my staple go-to makeup bag when I'm in a rush, or just for everyday. Without these products (or something similar), I'm an unhappy pooch)! 
First off is the fabulous Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream, I won't ramble on about it too much as I spoke about it in a recent post here but it is amaazing! And perfect for Summer! 
Next is the Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder. I have it in the shade Warm Natural. Im actually using the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, and although I love it, I don't think it's as good at keeping your makeup in place all day! Having said that, the price tag on the Bobbi Brown Powder isn't nearly as good either! 
I've been using the Sleek Face Contour Kit in the shade Light for some time now. Although it is actually pretty dark (so use it sparingly), it does a great job! Especially when used with the Real Techniques Contour Brush. It also has a highlighter, which isn't shimmery or too much when tapped on with your finger. 
You can't have a makeup bag without a lip balm of some kind... I've always heard so much about the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, but not so much about the collections Lip Protectant. I came across a set with this in recently and is now a go-to in the mornings. It leaves my lips feeling so soft and it's not too difficult to put lipstick on top of either! 
I am totally in love with the Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer. It was also mentioned in a recent post, so read more about it there! I'm also loving the powder in this too! 
Call me crazy but this George Satin Soft Eyeliner Pencil, is the BOMB! I have been using this for years, and I really don't plan on changing. Not only is it super cheap, its so easy to apply, soft and is retractable so no need to faff about with a sharpener! 
Finally, I have been repurchasing the Maybelline The Falsies mascara for quite some time. It's not actually because I think it's the best mascara out there, I just no that it works and hate it when I discover a mascara that does nothing for my lashes! Repetitive Rupert over here! Is there one you would recommend? 
You might be wondering why there isn't a blusher feautured in here. I wear blush most days but I just haven't got a go-to one. I love changing it up and wearing different colours etc! 
What's in your makeup bag?
