Temptalia Asks You

What beauty products are in your purse/bag right now? I’ve asked it before, but I’m sure it’s changed for most of us, so spill your guts AND your purse’s contents 😉

I’m really boring, I rarely carry beauty stuff with me, so I just have Lil Sizzler lip gelee and Fuchsia Fix tinted lip conditioner! Oh, chapstick and Cortisone if those count!

    Usually just avon’s pressed powder in porcelain, and the lipstick and/or gloss i’m wearing that day. No point in carrying anything else as all my makeup is done at home and i never really need touching up. I also don’t ever think it’s a good idea to be carrying a large stash of expensive products, only to find them broken, lost, grubby or stolen at the end of the week.
