1.  Chantilly Julianna Jewelry Case

Ever since we debuted this BRAND NEW style earlier this fall, people can’t stop talking about our Julianna Jewelry Case!  The front section features a ring roll, zip pocket, snap pouch and a tab to organize earrings, while the back section provides snaps upon which to hang and separate necklaces, keeping them tangle free.  When shimmering sequin chevrons in platinum and pale gold pair with a soft grey velvet interior, holiday glamour ensues.  (Photo credit:  BaubleBar.  Please note:  jewelry not included).

2.  Galapagos Orchid Mini Pouch

Use it as a miniature wallet, a home for makeup basics, a jewelry pouch . . . the possibilities are endless with our Mini Pouch!  Textured faux reptile in rich orchid provides a pretty pop of color, making it easy to find inside your handbag or tote!

3.  Napa Martha Briefcase

Equipped with three roomy and removable zip pouches (two fabric, one plastic), a large clear zip wall pocket, and tall handles to carry or hang over a bathroom door, this cosmetic briefcase boasts tons of storage for your beauty arsenal.  I adore the organic elegance of natural raffia, the sleek finish of black patent trim, and the opulence of a deep violet liner.

4.  Valencia Large Pouch with Gold Wristlet

Delicate blossoms etched against nude faux leather whisper of a field of wild roses, gently swaying in a warm Mediterranean breeze. I love the gentle femininity of this pouch, neutral enough to use as an everyday basic, but pretty enough to dress up with a metallic gold wristlet and wear out.

5.  Miami Charcoal Small Zip Cosmetic

Our Small Zip’s size and shape make it the ideal everyday makeup bag.  Transparent, smoky dark grey allows you to view all of the contents, while adding just a touch of mystery about what’s contained inside.

6.  Galapagos Grey Grace Brush Case

Grace is one of our most popular makeup cases, with five brush pockets and plenty of space for your beauty essentials.  In oh-so-chic textured faux reptile in supple volcanic grey, this case opens to reveal a vivacious hot pink liner, making all of the contents easy to locate.

7.  Concord Jenny Train Case

If you’re anything like me, the Jenny is destined to become your go-to travel toiletry bag.  I’m a big fan of the interior elastic bands that strap products down and secure them in place, as well as the clear zip pouch (containing a removable mirror) that I can toss into my handbag or tote.  Our Concord Collection’s winter ikat print is effortlessly elegant, and opens to reveal a vibrant orchid liner.

8.  Madison Avenue ML Traveler

A perennial best-seller, our ML Traveler is the Cadillac of cosmetic carry-alls.  With two snap-out mesh pouches, a removable clear zip pouch, clear wall pocket, and removable mirror, it may be the most versatile piece in our organizational arsenal.  Seen here in our Madison Avenue Collection, sleek obsidian sequin and velvet faux crocodile elevates basic black to a whole new level of luxury.

9.  Atlantic City Silver Katie Folding Cosmetic

Katie features two clear zip pockets ideal for makeup and can’t-live-without essentials.  With a sweet silhouette (and a secure snap closure), it’s no wonder Katie is frequently seen carried as a handbag.  I’m drawn to this one in glitzy, tinsel-inspired metallic silver, ideal for a holiday party (New Year’s Eve, anyone?)

10.  Bollywood Grey Eye Mask

As seen in the December issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine!  Our ultra-luxurious eye mask gives new meaning to the phrase ‘beauty sleep!’ Shade your eyes in style underneath a glamorous façade of metallic gold bengaline, twinkling gold stars, and soothing circles of soft grey.  Lined in satin and enclosed in a clear Stephanie Johnson logo zip case.

Whats-in-my-SJ-Lindsay-Roge

I’ve been a Stephanie Johnson devotee for years now so no wonder her bags are all I use in my admittedly large, on-the-go makeup stash. Currently, I am loving the new Galapagos Teal Mini Pouch and the Santiago Fiona Dome Cosmetic.

I prefer to keep my skin care separate from my color cosmetics. So my makeup goes in the Mini Pouch and the Fiona stores my skin care touch-up tools. Here is what I keep on hand:

Inside my Santiago Fiona:

I am a big believer that skin care leads to great skin. And, as a result, less makeup is needed. So I keep a couple staples in my purse.

Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre – This French pharmacy staple keeps my winter skin supple and radiant despite the dryness in the air.

Klorane Soothing Make-Up Remover Wipes with Cornflower Water – I can clean up any eye makeup drifts that might have happened during the day without any irritation. And being sans-liquid makes these super travel friendly.

Avene Eau Thermale – My skin tends to get really red. So I use this to calm my skin. Plus it makes a full face of makeup look very natural.

Rohto Eye Drops – These sting a bit, but after a late night there is no better way to fake clear and bright eyes.

Whats-in-my-SJ-2

Inside my Galapagos Teal Mini Pouch:

Lancôme EFFACERNES Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer – Thanks to my friend from Dallas, this has been my go-to under eye concealer because it doesn’t budge. It is also perfect for big events when you can’t be bothered with touch-ups.

NARS 413 BLKR Illuminator – See the Avene spray above, but you can tell I prefer a luminous and fresh look. This special edition illuminator works on my paler, winter skin perfectly for a lit-within look.

Eyeko Visual Eyes Liquid Eyeliner – Eyeliner is my “desert island” product because my larger eyes need the definition. This liquid is easy to use even in the car and lasts all day.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Julie – The newest lipstick formula from NARS is moisturizing AND long-lasting – something no one has managed to do well until now. Julie is sweet and youthful. Plus, it is so easy to wear as a soft and pale nude/pink.

About Lindsay:

Vibrant color, exotic wildlife, breathtaking natural wonders – the Galapagos Islands are the home of all things rare, uncommon and beautiful.  My fantasy trip to the far-flung archipelago (the inspiration behind our Fall 2014 Galapagos Collection – available in purple, teal, orchid, brown and grey) includes some unconventional fashion finds.  Why not?
