Whether you’re headed to a first date, a fancy gala, or just a late night rendezvous, you need a kit that can keep you fresh-faced, glowy and ready to handle anything. Sure, A-listers might have an entire glam team at their beck and call to help powder their nose or reapply lip gloss, but you need to have all those tricks of the trade on hand for when you’re looking a bit shiny, or want to look more awake. Lucky for you, instead of having to find all those products and hope that they will fit inside your clutch, we found just the kit you need.

The Violet Grey Evening Bag Edit has everything you need for a truly flawless touch-up. The gift set contains a mini Chanel Gabrielle Chanel Eau De Parfum Spray, a 30 sheet set of Tatcha Original Aburatorigami Blotting Sheets, the Sisley-Paris Phyto-Eye Twist in Topaze, Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Cream Lip Stain in Carmin Session, a Caudalie Beauty Elixir, the LanoLips Hands Allover Rose Hand Cream, a clear MAC Lipglass and a Kosås Color & Light: Creme in Tropic Equinox, all in a chic exclusive Violet Grey gift box.
If you haven’t yet heard of Violet Grey, consider this your introduction. The shop started as a result of searching for the perfect eyelash curler and after rigorous testing on red carpets, movie sets and more, one was found. The test to find the curling tool became known as the Violet Code and now a community of top hairstylists, estheticians, dermatologists, makeup artists and celebrity influencers help determine which products end up on the exclusive shelves of Violet Grey. At least 70 percent of testers have to deem a product a must-have, and only then will you be able to add the goodie to your cart. Basically, it’s like having a beauty editor as your BFF on speed dial.
Now, back to the kit. Each item has been extensively tested in order for it to not just end up on Violet Grey, but to be a part of the kit. Each item serves a specific purpose, too. The Chanel Gabrielle Spray, for example, is just the right size to carry in an evening clutch and packs the perfect punch of sparkling, feminine and vibrant fragrance. Notes of ylang-ylang, fresh and sparkling orange blossom and grasse tuberose create a radiant scent that’s perfect for any occasion.
The Tatcha Aburatorigami Blotting Sheets are all-natural and absorb any excess oil on your skin, without messing up the makeup you already have on. There’s no powder or fragrance either, so it won’t irritate your skin or ruin your look.
The Sisley-Paris Phyto-Eye Twist is a do it all eye stick, and can serve as either eyeshadow or liner, depending on the look you’re going for. It’s buttery and easy to blend, so you can have a sultry smokey eye in seconds (and without having to pack a palette and brushes to get the makeup look).
The Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Cream Lip Stain is an intense liquid lip that has a gloss-like vinyl finish. It’s budge-proof and Carmin Session is the perfect shimmery deep red that’s sure to make your smile sparkle.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir has been a makeup artist favorite for eons, and it’s no wonder why. One spritz of the stuff will make you feel like you’ve been transported to the most luxurious vineyard in all of France.
Whether your evening will be filled with handshakes or handholds, you need to make sure your skin is as soft as can be. The LanoLips Hands Allover Rose Hand Cream is a super rich cream that’ll leave your hands (or whatever else you choose to use it on) silky smooth.
If you’re looking for a subtle sheen or a trendy glass-like finish, MAC Lipglass has got you covered. The kit comes with the clear gloss, perfect for patting on in the center of your lips to bring out the color underneath, or for wearing alone.
Finally, there’s nothing worse than realizing halfway through an event that your cheekbones look a little lackluster. Up the glam with the Kosås Color & Light: Creme in Tropic Equinox, a cream blush and highlighter that will help you look more awake, alert and ready to party into the wee hours of morning.
