Some sort of lip balm (usually Jack Black Lip Balm for me). I keep a couple of glosses in my purse, but otherwise I don’t carry much makeup with me. If I’m going out all day, then I will bring whatever lip products I started the day with in my purse!

– Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets (a MUST)
– Lip balm
– Hand cream

I have a HUGE makeup bag that I always carry around, but these are the only three I HAVE to have with me!

I always carry lip balm and one or two lip glosses. More recently I added Dior’s lip glow balm to my permanent items in my purse (LOVE!) along with Chanel Les Beige #20.

I keep wet wipes small pack … the lip color m wearing n matching gloss n pencil for touch up if m required to be out whole day …. like a movie then some playing n window shopping 🙂
a black liner too…

as two men in my house thinks I spend too much time n doing makeup I apply my lip color in car 99 percent times …. so I always keep a small mirror with me too 🙂

I, too, take with me whichever lip products I started out with. I also keep a pressed powder in my purse at all times, along with about a zillion lipchaps rolling around the bottom of my bag. There’s usually a stick concealer thrown in there, too, but I never use it.

I’m super low maintenance once I step away from my vanity. The only makeup item I keep in my purse is lip-something. I usually accumulate quite a few, which is weird because it seems like I never remember to take the one I’m wearing with me. It’s a strange conundrum!

Usually tinted lip balm, glossy lip balm, a black or brown eyeliner, a mini mascara (hardly use), mini sunscreen. Miscellaneous, a few face wipes, a hand sanitizer and a compact brush/mirror.

If I have time to do my makeup at home, then I just carry a lipbalm, hand cream, and powder with SPF (mainly to touch up my sunscreen-why can’t anyone come up with a facial sunscreen that lasts more than 2 hours…). If I don’t have time, then I’ll carry eye products with me. I always make sure I have whatever face products on before I leave, though, and unless I plan to be out all day, it all stays home.

I always have Clean and clear oil absorbing sheets, a small comb, Nars Tzigane lipstick, and bobbi brown pot rouge in powder pink(lovely natural blush plus a mirror) with me at all times. A nivea lip balm or Korres lip butter would be there too.

I have very dry lips, so I carry two or three lip balms. I carry several lip products too, lipsticks and glosses. I always take the one I’m wearing but I forget to take them out of my purse the next day.

Some sort of touch-up powder (usually now it’s Essence All About Matte) and a lip balm or gloss or the lipstick I applied that morning. And hand cream and usually a mini of hand sanitizer.

I alway carry in my bag:
– MAC MSF natural
– Black eyeliner pencil
– Eyebrowgel
– Coverstick
– 1-2 lipglosses
– Lipstick (if i wear one this day)

Lipstick for the times when I am wearing it and I always always have Korres Lip Butter in Guava with me. I feel lost without it. Oh, and I seem to carry a brow pencil of some sort with me despite never pulling it from my tiny makeup bag when I am on the go. My lips are dry and my eyebrows are sparse and hideous so backup for my two biggest concerns essentially.

I always carry at least a few clear balms for when my lips are really dry (jack black, eos, and fresh), a tinted balm (fresh), many many lipsticks, and a few glosses. I also have oil absorbing sheets, and eye blending brush (for emergencies), a spoolie, and two perfumes (viva la juicy and flowerbomb)

lip balm right now Jack Black lemon, one nude lipstick right now Chanel superstition 38, one bright-dark one(also could be used as a blush) right now Armani 604, powder and concealer – right now some Bourjois, healthy mix concealer in 53 and unknown tone of powder by Bourjois:)

Some of my friends carry around a whole makeup bag in their purse filled with goodies. I really only keep a chapstick and my lip product of the day (gloss, lipstick) with me during the day.

Lip balm (Currently Maybelline Baby Lips)
A few lipglosses

And if I’m wearing full face makeup, I bring concealer and eyeliners in various forms for touch ups.

I always have some kind of lipbalm, lip product of the day (actually usually I have a few floating around my purse) and some kind of powder. For evenings out where I’m very done up or long days at work I actually usually use a powder foundation as my powder, so that I can control not only shine but also fix any skin issues that come up. But that’s it. Theoretically I’ll have a travel mascara and eye pencil with me in case I wind up going out unexpectedly after work, but they seem to have migrated out of my purse as of late.

2.Pop up brush
3.Powder compact (but to be honest this is mostly for the mirror)
4.Hair tie
5.There is usually a lip product or two floating about in my bag but I could live without them.

Hand cream, cuticle cream, and lip balm are the only real biggies. There’s always some tinted lip balms and lip stains I carry (I’m starting to carry Becca’s Beach Tint with me, I love this stuff!)

I leave a makeup bag in my purse that has concealer, powder, eyeliner, Clinique retractable brush with blush in the end, eyedrops, dental floss, nail file, tweezers, folding scissors, tiny disposable toothbrushes and a couple bandaids. Lipbalm, tinted and non-tinted, lipstick, couple lipglosses. Guess I’m like the boy scouts, I like to be prepared, lol!

A stick concealer, at least one lip balm (usually two, one clear and one tinted) and a little variety of lip products – glosses and sticks (mostly wearable colors of both cooler and warmer undertones).

I used to carry around a huge makeup bag until I realized that I didn’t need most of it. I have since cut down to a powder, retractable kabuki, lip balm, and whatever lip product I am wearing that day.

– Powder for touch ups (Currently Smashbox pressed powder)
– Blush (a deluxe size of Tarte Dollface)
– Two small brushes for the powder and blush
– A deluxe sample of mascara (for those days when I forget to put on mascara at home)
– A bajillion lipsticks and lipglosses.

I used to carry a big makeup case with pretty much everything I had on my face that day but nowadays I just carry a lipgloss or balm depending on the dryness of my lips. A hairbrush definitely because my hair knots quickly and Chanel’s translucent powder with a small brush (mainly to powder my nose, I get hayfever and just hate ‘sniffy nose’ so my makeup wears off there first because I’m constantly using a tissue which leaves my nose shiny and red…).

The lip product(s) I’m wearing that day, Chanel Double Perfection compact, the eyebrow color I’m using (though I’m getting better at never touching or smudging my brows), a small bottle of Fix+ (I used to carry Palladio Powder Sheets but like them less than Fix+), moisturizing hand sanitizer, glasses cleaning cloths, small packets of sunscreen. Usually an Aqua Fina lip balm.

it sounds like a lot to have with but it all fits in a small bag in my purse!
i have a burts bees lipbalm, blotting papers, mac face powder, a tiny face brush, a sample size of translucent powder, a sample size of tinted moisturizer, a sample size of black mascara and eyeliner, blemish powder and a sample size of benetint.
and then if i wear lipstick and gloss i’ll throw it in my purse if i think i’ll want to reapply.

I’ll bring a little eyeshadow palette (right now, it’s Physician’s Formula shimmer strips), mascara, and powder (if it has its own little (terrible) brush) if I’m running late and have to do my makeup in the bathroom at work :-/. Sometimes I think about a blush, but then I realize I really should bring a brush and so I always think, forget it. Otherwise, powder, hand sanitizer, Kleenex, and a lipstick that I constantly forget is in there because I rarely wear lipstick so I just put it on randomly!

Usually I have whatever lipstick I’m wearing that day, a lip balm, a pressed powder and a kabuki brush for touch ups and a black eyeliner pencil. I always always carry a really moisturing hand cream with me too. Having to wash my hands so much at work makes them all dry and chapped 🙁 I also usually have a hand sanitiser in my bag too.

The only things I carry are lip balm (Carmex in the squeeze tube) and my chosen lip gloss for the day so I can refresh my lips after meals and drinks.
