    “less than three” or “4 to 9″… I got three! shouldn’t it be “three or less”

    I used to carry everything I wore that day, in case I needed to touch anything up, then I started using a much smaller purse. now I only carry lip balm and whatever lip color I’m wearing that day. I’m planning to buy another, larger purse before the end of summer, so after that, I’ll likely go back to how I was before.

    I’d love it to be a none! but i have so much things that i wat but in my country are so difficoult to get, so much more expensive and the few things that get here always get late and of course super expensive. so there’s like a hundred things i want f.e the naked palette, chanel solei tan, laura mercier’s primer, products from mac’s iris collection (that probablly wont get here),maybelline’s full and soft mascara, eos lip balm, debora lippman’s, opiĀ“s and london butter nailpolishes(which are not usually shipped to Colombia) so many things :’(

    Oh Em Gee! Amount of mine varies day by day but I have at least 7. I commute 1,5 hours each way from work every day so I like to put on my makeup when I reach the office. On a normal day: foundie, blush, 2 lipsticks, lipbalm, eye primer… list goes on. I can’t believe it.

  5. I’m assuming this includes things like hand creams. I’ve got 2 Revlon lip butters, 1 Revlon lip gloss, Burt’s bees lip balm, a pot of Burt’s Bees lemon cuticle cream, and philosophy hands of hope hand cream. I think that’s it. I try to take out whichever lip color I’m not wearing that day, so if I hadn’t been so lazy yesterday I would have had less! :)

    Clarins lip balm, Lancome Abcolue French Touch 102, Estee Lauder Rose Coral Lipliner, Mac lipglass in Mix It Up and Viva Glam Cindy Lipglass

  7. I’m not really sure how many, but it’s a lot…I keep all my “wearable” and favorite lip products in my bag. It’s getting heavy! I really need to thin it out, there is no reason to have that many (and hurt my shoulder) for “just in case” lol.

  8. Ale

    Just chapstick and lipgloss =)

  9. Faye

    Probably around 20! Seriously. I have my main make up bag, which has foundation, powder, pencil and liquid eyeliners, an eyeshadow, eyebrow kit, blusher (plus blusher brush, kabuki brush, tweezers). And a separate makeup bag for lip products, as I like to change them around during the day as I go from one place to another… so around 10 Lush lip tints/balms, a Mac lip conditioner, a lip plumper, a carmex balm and today’s shipment from http://www.etsy.com/shop/ajoeynamedroo :)

    I am a slave to routine, so all of my purses contain the following: concealer (two types – yellow for dark circles, ivory for illuminating), lip balm, mascara, cream blush, and sometimes a lip color. All I need for a quick rush job between appointments. :)

  11. tuss

    I bring a small brush and powder, and sometimes but not often I bring mascara

  12. Nicole

    I didn’t count the products, but I believe 4 – 9, mostly lip products.

  13. Just one tube of Jack Black and one lipstick. I try to keep it cleaned out!

  14. Miss J

    Just a handful of lip products in my wristlet right now. It’s a rarity for me to carry anything else makeup related unless I’m wearing lashes then I will toss in the container and some lash glue. I’ll also carry lotion. Dry skin, blech!

  15. Reni

    Cannot believe… I only have one gloss… :-)

  16. Amber

    Skinfinish Natural, powder brush, 2 eyeliners, lip liner, 6 lipglass, and 5 MAC lipstick, 2 bottles of perfume.

  17. Roo

    My minimum is pressed powder, one balm or gloss, and a nail file. Today I also have a concealer and the lipstick I’m wearing. I have a bunch of makeup in my desk drawer though…

  18. oh wow, i only carry my powder and a some sort of lip product on a daily basis.

  19. If we’re not counting brushes, 9. But counting brushes is exactly 15!

  20. Like 5-6 lip products (mostly lip balms), a small tube of moisturizer, and a tiny tube of hand cream.

  21. Kristen

    I kind of cheated LOL. I changed purses today and only put two in my bag. But before I had like… 6 lip products and one compact. But *technically* at the time of voting, I had two.

  22. Jeanie

    MUFE powder compact, a disc of Graftobian concealer, a Chanel glossimer, a Benefit lipstick, and a tube of nondescript lip balm.

  23. Kim

    I usually just carry whatever lip color I’m wearing that day, plus my Jack Black lip balm. Unless I’m going out somewhere after work. Then I’ll bring some eye liner, mascara, and maybe a different lip color.

  24. Amy

    Products that stays in my purse:
    1. Jack Black lip balm
    2. Sunscreen
    3. Hello Kitty Compact mirror

    When I’m going out for a long period of time:
    All of the above+blotting sheets
    And sometimes the lip color I’m wearing+another color in case I suddenly needed a quick change in makeup

  25. None – I don’t carry a purse! :P

  26. Nikoline

    One :) Clarins Natural Lip Perfector in Rose Shimmer.

  27. Val
