Temptalia Asks You

What makeup is in your purse right now? What goodies do you have stashed away in your bag?

Temptalia's Answer.

I have Le Metier de Beaute Papaya Creme gloss… that’s it. I am usually good about keeping my purse free of my addiction (unlike the rest of my house).

    I normally have a mirror, a pressed powder (currently Rimmel Stay Matte), Vaseline and the lipstick/gloss I’m wearing, or today what I was wearing yesterday which was Max Factor Lipfinity. I don’t carry anything else with me in my bag.
