april bag + balm

bag: lis sartori mini makeup bag in fashionista print, $14

balm: yes to carrots color balm in rosy bloom, $6

i fell hard for this month’s bag via instagram. seeing sarah’s chunky jewels spilling out of the green zipper version had me hook, line, and sinker. clicking around, i found that lis sartori is a brilliant illustrator and we have things in common, she and i: she’s from massachusetts with a penchant for all things feminine and girly. clearly this is someone whose work i need to support. the fabric on lis’s beauty bags represents classic fashion staples and was designed by lis herself. each bag is fully lined with a bright print and your choice of contrasting zipper. they come in two sizes (mini and maxi) and lis even designed a fun patchwork version if you’re looking for something extra special.

as for the balm, i’m seriously considering renaming this series bag + tinted lip balm. i am not meeting a tinted lip balm i don’t like these days, but none so much as my most recent love affair with yes to carrots color balm in rosy bloom. this pink stick has taken up permanent residence in my beauty basket and i can’t stop swiping it on my lips. the color is too perfect, almost a sheer cinnamon and the rich, nourishing hydration factor is spot on. take into considering the wallet-friendly price point and the 99% natural make up, i’m not sure how you can justify not trying this little lady.

    • you will love! it’s hydrating but not slick so the staying power is really nice. the rose color is so perfect for me – it gives my lips a pretty boost in the morning.


  1. I love Yes to! Somehow the beauty gods looked down upon me and gave me a beauty blogger sister and a beauty PR rep as a bestfriend and lucky for me Yes to has made its way into my life in everyway and i couldn’t be happier. It’s so great that a fun, affordable, and eco conscious brand has made its way onto the scene and backs up their street cred with amazing products. I reccomend buying everything they have to offer on top of this lip brand you won’t be sorry.
