I have: Rush Hour (cheek and lipstick) by Benefit, a Biotherm lipstick, Stella by Stella McCartney roll-on perfume, Stila rouge pot, Neutrogena lip boost, Clinique Perfectly Real powder compact, and MAC Blot Film. Phew…that’s a lot, but I work full-time and often go out after work or spend weekend days going from breakfast to the zoo to dinner with friends. I need all that stuff to keep me looking fresh!

My current items in my purse as of today are:
Gold Bond Ultimate healing Lotion
Pink Sephora Nail Polish
MAC Lighthearted Mystery Powder (Stylistics)
MAC Strawbaby (Fafi)
MAC Royal Assets: Tan Lips (Antiquitease)
MAC Plushglass in Plus Luxe
MAC Lusterglass in Flashmode
Burt Bees Lip Shimmer Balm in Coffee
L’Oreal HIP lip gloss in Outspoken
L’Oreal Hip lip gloss in Astounding

(Yes, I admit. I am a lip gloss whore).

Oh, man! I have my makeup bag in my purse. How about I just tell you what’s in the purse and not in the bag in the purse…
Studio Fix Powder, Simmer Juicy Tube, the holiday Viva Glam compact, Viva Glam V lipglass, a Shiseido eyeliner duo in Desert Dusk, Viva Glam 6 lipstick, tester of Trish McEvoy Sexy #9, tester of Philosophy’s Inner Grace, 4N.

okay in my stylish diaper bag I`m carrying…

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.

Fusion Beauty Lip Plumper
Chanel Rouge Allure in Charme

In my purse right now the FIVE beauty products I have are: bleach cream, nose hair trimmer, a disposable razor, baby oil, and hair food. The other products I have are deodorant, baby wipes, industrial strength douche, and tweezers! I don’t wear too much makeup during the day after I’ve applied it in the morning, but let’s just say I look a little something like this:

thats quite a selection of products, Pearl!
but ummm how do you survive without carrying an enema kit???!

I have sephora matifying compact powder in cool mahogany, lipglass viva glam 6 lipgelee in some hot pink color, viva glam lipstick 2, mac lip conditioner, carmex, loreal mascara, msf powder, raizin blush, joyous blush, and blush and foundation brush. wooo thats alot of product! (oh some lotion and hair stuff)

I took out quite a few things just the other day so right now I have –
MAC plushglass in Full For You (I LOVE this color)
LUSH solid perfume in Honey I Washed the Kids
a sample of Lollibomb lotion in Walk in the Park

I don’t carry too much because I hate hauling around a heavy purse. I have MAC Blot Powder, MAC Plum Dandy lipstick and MAC Oyster Girl lipglass. I change out the lipstick and lipglass pretty much each day.
