  1. Celeste Cirinna

    Paula’s Choice Resist Moisturizer w/SPF 30 and Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Phoenix. My HG lip color that sadly has been discontinued.

  2. blueraccoon

    L’Occitane hand cream, Guerlain rouge automatique in Ballade, Dior Addict Extreme in Cruise, Burberry Mallow Pink gloss, YSL volupte sheer candy in cherry, Fresh lip balm in Berry, Neutrogena revlitalizing lip balm in some color, and my actual purse pouch with a bunch of lip products in it (Guerlain Garance, Burberry Sepia Pink, Bobbi Brown Citrus, Chanel Merveille, mini MUFE N45, mini Burberry Pink Apricot, Tarte Energy, Clinique Roomiest Rose, Jouer lip enhancer). I, um, like variety? And carry a big purse? For non-lip products I have my pressed Meteorites and my Burberry sheer compact foundation. Also while digging through my bag I found L’Oreal infallible e/s in infinite sky, Milani brown eyeliner pencil, and a bottle of Sonia Kashuk nail polish, but I took those out.

    Oh, my, this list is embarassing. I always have a “work kit” for my cosmetics in my bag if I don’t have time to do my makeup before work, so the list is a little big –

I use stay don’t stray and other products that keep my makeup in check. I barely have time to have lunch or use the restroom so fixing my makeup during the day would be a huge luxury!

  44. Lark

    Four lip glosses, a lipstick, paintbrushes, a bunch of cheap gel waterproof eyeliners in garish colors, wipes, Marcella Borghese irredescent powder, I swear it’s quad chrome! And some Color Tattoo. Last night I was at one of the oldest, most epic of costume balls and I always bring paint to use on people if inspired. Subversive! Never about pretty. Part of the MOMs experience. Ilamasques new campaign was inspiring!

    The glosses are my usual carry. The rest is Holy Days of Mardi Gras Kit.

    It’s Carnival Time! Although I do this at Jazz Fest sometimes, but the products are so good now! Color Tat is a good price and available nearby. It’s rare to wander around putting color on strangers faces at will and them getting stoked! It’s a celebration of existential experience- right up the make up alley.
