What makeup do you have stashed in your purse right now? Women are notorious for carrying more in than purse than need, and it got me to wonder just how much makeup are we keeping in our little (okay, big) bags?

Me? I hardly carry makeup with me, other than the lipstick/lipglass I used for the look of that day. I think all I have in my purse is Lil’ Sizzler lip gelee! So I think I might defy the norm in this respect.

    I have now in my bag is the C7 studiofix, nightmoth lip pencil and chestnut lip pencil, viva glam ll,atmospheric lip glass, instant gold lip glass, jellybabe lip gelee, and my bronze powder.

  2. Belle

    I usually keep oil blotting sheets and studio fix powder and either a lipglass or lipstick sometimes both but I find that I never end up using anything except my lipglass lol but I like to keep the sheets and powder in there you know just in case! I think I’m comforted knowing that it’s there if I need it.

    Hmm…I don’t usually carry makeup around with me. And probably just like you, I bring around the lipgloss/lipstick color I’m wearing on that day. But most of the time I’m lazy I just bring my Purring Tendertone around cos I loves it. 😛

  5. Viva Glam Holiday 2007 Lip Palette
    Fashion Pack Lip Glass
    Clear Lip Glass

    I have the kitchen sink with me today, all crammed into a lovely metallic Sephora makeup bag. Not alot of MAC this time! Bare Minerals face paraphernalia, Diorshow, Benefit Get Bent, NARS Orgasm, Sephora 8-pan eyeshadow palette, assorted MAC & BM brushes, MAC blushes Peaches & Cheek, MAC Blitz & Glitz, an Olive Eye Pencil (great for almost any brow if applied lightly) Alison Raffaele Soft Gloss in Polished, Clinque Black Honey, a mini Lancome eyeshadow quad that has a muted golden brown eyeshadow that I love, Benefit lipstick in Good-to-Go, MAC Clear brow gel, Victoria’ Secret Eyeshadow in Gratify, Dior Gloss in Jersey Girl (which compliments none of the other makeup I have with me!), and some Bourgois lip gloss I got as gratis that’s far too metallic and shimmery for my liking.
