Dressing in the Restroom with Make Up on the Go



If you are anything like me, you have a very busy schedule and oftentimes are running from one event to another after work.  Unfortunately for me, there is too much of a distance between my home and place of employment that I don’t have time to return home to change clothes and re-apply makeup so I am usually doing it in the restroom at work.


Recently, I had lunch with a former co-worker and as we were leaving the restaurant a young lady approached us and handed me a small pretty purple bag and proceeded to show me a sample of its contents.


Makeover Essentials





You know me, I thought it was a FREE gift, however, it wasn’t, and after capturing my attention she explained that the cost would be $20 plus tax. Since we don’t have sales tax in Delaware I refused to pay the Pennsylvania tax, however, my co-worker graciously did.  I was a bit leery about making the purchase but I took her picture then asked for her social media platforms to verify that she was legit!


Anywho, $20 bucks was a bit pricey, but I admired her hustle, however, I couldn’t help but think about those “don’t let anyone spray you with perfume in the parking lot” internet warnings.


I loved the small compact size of the cosmetics because it beats carrying a full makeup bag to work and it fits neatly in my purse or I can simply leave it in my desk drawer for when I need a quick touch-up.

lip color and pencil

Lip Addiction II


  • 4 Lip Colors
  • Clear Vinyl Carrying Case
  • 1 Retractable Brush Applicator



I tried a few of the shadows and liked how smooth and creamy they applied as well as the liners and mascara which wasn’t clumpy nor messy.





  • Lip Addiction colors are great for my skin complexion
  • Eye Shadows apply smoothly
  • Sized perfectly to fit my purse or tote bag




  • Applicator brushes are too small
  • Blushes are too light for my skin complexion



So my unsolicited and unpaid review is: whether you’re heading out after work for a networking event or are headed out to catch a quick flight into the city and you need a mini “face beat” Makeover Essentials will definitely meet your needs.

  1. I remember a guy came to my old job selling these, and I was so impressed by it that I got some for myself. I liked how compact the makeup is. Easy to take on the go and on trips. I’m glad to see it’s still around.
