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.

make up on a budget and of course mac. NYC several colours and anything mac the list is to long and my purse is to big! I am working on down sizing!!!! LOL

A lipstick wallet with mirror, holding a chapstick, Nars Transeurope Express, and Chanel Rouge Allure Intuitive; Nars lipgloss in Gothika; a tube of Lucas’ Papaw Ointment; a small vaporiser filled with Penhaligon’s Gardenia EDT; MAC Lightful Powder compact; and a compact powder brush.

Two mascaras, three lipglosses, concealer and a lip brush. (And a pressed powder compact which I don’t use)

Dolce & Gabbana pressed powder, Chanel Nude l/l, Chanel Waikiki Aqualumiere l/s and Dior J’adore mini perfume. I only carry what I need for touch-ups throughout the day, nothing more. Hate clutter in my purse.

I usually have my pocket mirror, Kiko (an Italian budget brand) blotting papers, kohl liner and the gloss/lipstick of the day. If I have to stay out longer I also bring Rimmel Stay Matte compact powder with me.

I stopped carrying a purse awhile ago. But in my work bag I have –

lipgloss
brush
blotting sheets
mirror

If just going to the mall, I just keep the lipgloss in my pocket 🙂

i know its not makeup but its essential – DDF moisturizing dew

CO Bigelow tinted mint gloss

stilla lipgloss

black eyeliner

MAC blot powder compact

i used to have a big powder brush but i have no idea where i put that

in reality though. the only thing i always always wear is lipgloss. usually the minty one cuz its flavored…

I was tired of looking for products in my purse so I recently put all my purse products into a little MAC bag (one of those bags you get when you purchase a brush set.

In the little bag I have amirror, two liners, three lipsticks, and four glosses.

I have aloe vera gel, compact mirror, lip balm, wet n wild lipstick, and oil blotting tissues. When I start working, I might carry around a small soap or something for my oily face so I could freshen up in midday.

MAC Blot, MAC Prep & Prime Lip, NYX l/l in Natural, NYX l/g in Natural, Almay Hydracolor l/s in Rose and Stila l/s in Sonya.

I usually don’t keep makeup in my bag, exception is when I go to an interview or some party. In rest of time I have only a lipgloss, lipbalm or anyway something for my lips. Right now if you search me :)you’ll find JORDANA sheer lipgloss in strawbery shine. It’s very natural peachy color and it’s very shimmery.

Usually I have a ton of lipglosses in my bag, but right now I’m pretty good. Only Utterly Posh dazzleglass, Pink Grapefruit lipglass, and some lip balms.

I have a pink BadGal mirror, hand sanitizer, Avon tahititan holiday SPF 15 lipgloss in Beach Glow, Goldie lipgloss in Faddle, Bath & Body Works Liplicious lipgloss in Limeade, and Aquaphor.

I usually just keep whatever lip color I’m wearing for the day in my purse but I have some tools in there too like a mirror, eyelash curler, and blotting papers and lip balm.

Victoria’s Secret gloss, we are having such a freak heatwave here and my book bag for school is a bit full I fear if I put anything else in my bag it will melt or get destroyed.

MAC Blot Powder, MAC Pink Poodle Lipglass, MAC Tendertone Lip Balm in Tender Baby, Ulta Black-brown Kohl eyeliner, Urban Decay mini lipstick in Sellout, Sephora mini lip gloss (the light pink one from the b-day gift set), a pair of tweezers, a mirror and blot sheets.

I always have a mirror with me! I also keep a tinted Korres Lip Butter and Rosebud Strawberry Lip Balm with me almost all of the time. Other than that, I just carry the lip color I’m wearing that day (today it’s “On Hold” by MAC).

Oh, and LOTS of bobby pins!

I usually only have my compact, and the lipstick I am wearing that day.

Anything more would be if I went somewhere and end up at an evening event then I’d probably bring blush and eyeshadow.
