    I had never carried so many i had always carried a small make up bag but, every day i kept using different colors so, i just decided to carry most of my lip collection, lol. But i know i need a smaller make-up bag. My shoulders are already hurting because of the weight of my big purses.

  26. Chrissy

    I need to get a makeup bag, right now it’s all in what I think is supposed to be a cellphone pocket in my purse.

    I switch out my lipstick and gloss depending on what I’m wearing that day. I keep all my lip liners in my purse, even though I rarely use them. However, if they weren’t there, I would never use them. :)

  27. Jen

    I have Lipliners Stripdown and Subculture, eyeliners Feline, Coffee, and Teddy.

  34. mars

    Everyday I have my Estee Lauder Gold Pisces powder compact that I’ve had for 10 years, purse spray or sample of perfume and a Burts Bees lipbalm packed into a 5×7 Betsey Johnson pink striped makeup bag which doubles as my purse for work. Depending on the lip I’m wearing I pack 1-2 lip liners, lipstick, and gloss and my clear brow finisher if it’s a dark/bright lip. Sometimes I end up with more if I forget to empty it out at the end of the day but I try to keep it under control.

  35. oh my….you really want to know?

    in my makeup bag that i carry in my purse:

    Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel (primer)
    Bare Minerals Mixed Powder Foundation (1/2 Dark, 1/2 Warmth)
    Bare Minerals Mineral Veil
    Black Radiance Desert Clay Quad (eye brow filler)
    Urban Decay Primer Potion
    HIP Saucy
    Brushes: All over face, blush, 2 eye shadow, mascara wand (4 clumps), eyebrow brush
    L’Oreal Panoramic Mascara in Blackest Black
    Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor in True Chocolate
    Random Red lip pencil

    I do my makeup at work….so thats why i’ve got a face full of stuff. i switch out the eye shadow colors each day but everything else stays the same. i also have a smaller bag with lipglosses….about 7-8 tubes i think.

    i need a bigger purse

  36. SnickerDoodle

    I literally have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Really..a couple lip balms and clear/nude glosses because i hate dry lips, but that’s it. i REALLY need to make up a little makeup bag for midday touch ups. But I’m weird and don’t want to have my makeup in 2 different places.

  37. Chanel

    I have black liquid eyeliner, khol eyeliner, three different mascaras, compact and my champagne/brown combo [highlight, but add the brown and its a look. I should carry my eyebrow pencil [I’m blonde who dyes her hair blood/dark red] but i forget.
